This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding sixteen persons under eighteen entries to the Entity List. The persons who are added to the Entity List have been determined by the U.S. Government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. These persons will be listed on the Entity List under the countries of Afghanistan, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.). The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and that availability of license exceptions in such transactions is limited.

Document Number: 2012-9905
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-04-25
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding to the Entity List two persons who have been determined by the U.S. Government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. These persons will be listed on the Entity List under the country of France. This rule also amends the Entity List on the basis of the annual review of the Entity List conducted by the End-User Review Committee (ERC). The ERC conducts the annual review to determine if any entries on the Entity List should be removed or modified. This rule reflects the results of the ERC's annual review of fifteen countries, i.e. Armenia, Belarus, Egypt, Germany, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Norway, Russia, South Korea, Syria, the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), and the United Kingdom (U.K.). As a result of these reviews, this rule makes amendments to the Entity List including: The removal of three entries (one each in Germany, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.)); the addition of four entities (one each in Canada, Egypt, France and the United Kingdom); and the amendments of seventeen entries to provide alternate addresses, alternate spellings of names, and/or aliases for listed persons. The amended entries are in Armenia, Germany, Iran, Lebanon, Syria, and the U.A.E. sections of the Entity List. The Entity List provides notice to the public that certain exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) to entities identified on the Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and that availability of license exceptions in such transactions is limited.

Revisions to Authorization Validated End-User Provisions: Requirement for Notice of Export, Reexport, or Transfer (In-Country) and Clarification Regarding Termination of Conditions on VEU Authorizations
Document Number: 2012-9237
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-04-17
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
In this rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) proposes to amend the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding a requirement for persons shipping under Authorization Validated End- User (VEU) to send written notice of such shipments to the recipient VEU. BIS further proposes to amend the EAR to clarify that when items subject to item-specific conditions under Authorization VEU no longer require a license for export or reexport or become eligible for shipment under a license exception, as set forth in the EAR, VEUs are no longer bound by the conditions associated with such items.

Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security

Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Export Control Classification Number 0Y521 Series, Items Not Elsewhere Listed on the Commerce Control List (CCL)
Document Number: 2012-8944
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-04-13
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) publishes this final rule, which amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by establishing a new Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) series, 0Y521, on the Commerce Control List (CCL) and makes corresponding changes to the EAR. The ECCN 0Y521 series will be used for items that warrant control on the CCL but are not yet identified in an existing ECCN. As BIS explained in the proposed rule issued on July 15, 2011 (76 FR 41958), this new temporary holding classification is equivalent to United States Munitions List (USML) Category XXI (Miscellaneous Articles), but with a limitation that while an item is temporarily classified under ECCN 0Y521, the U.S. Government works to adopt a control through the relevant multilateral regime(s); to determine an appropriate longer-term control over the item; or determines that the item does not warrant control on the CCL. Items will be added to the 0Y521 ECCNs by the Department of Commerce, with the concurrence of the Departments of Defense and State, when it identifies an item that should be controlled because it provides a significant military or intelligence advantage to the United States or because foreign policy reasons justify such control. The 0Y521 series was described in the July 15, 2011 proposed rule that identified a framework for how articles, which the President determines, as part of the Administration's Export Control Reform Initiative, no longer warrant control on the USML would be controlled under the CCL. In this rule, however, the 0Y521 provisions are being published in final form, with necessary corresponding changes, separate from the other July 15 rule proposals. Public comments on the other July 15 proposals remain under BIS review.
