Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: Auxiliary and Miscellaneous Items That No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List and Items on the Wassenaar Arrangement Munitions List
Document Number: 2012-12124
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-05-18
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) publishes this action to propose how auxiliary and miscellaneous military equipment and related articles the President determines no longer warrant control under Category XIII (Auxiliary Military Equipment) of the United States Munitions List (USML) would be controlled under the Commerce Control List (CCL) in new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 0A617, 0B617, 0C617, 0D617, and 0E617 as part of the proposed new ``600 series'' of ECCNs. This rule proposes also to integrate into those five new ECCNs items within the scope of Wassenaar Arrangement Munitions List (WAML) Category 17 that would be removed from the USML, or that are not specifically identified on the USML or CCL but that are currently subject to USML jurisdiction. Finally, this rule proposes to control some items now classified under ECCNs 0A018, 0A918 and 0E018 under new ECCNs 0A617 and 0E617. This action would consolidate the above- mentioned auxiliary and miscellaneous military equipment and related articles on the CCL in the proposed new ``600 series.'' This rule is one of a planned series proposing how various types of articles that the President determines, as part of the Administration's Export Control Reform Initiative, no longer warrant control on the USML under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), would be controlled on the CCL in accordance with the requirements of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). This proposed rule is being published in conjunction with a proposed rule from the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, which would amend the list of articles controlled by USML Category XIII.
Entity List Additions; Corrections
Document Number: 2012-11555
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-05-14
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
This document corrects spelling errors in two final rules published by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) in April 2012. BIS published the first final rule in the Federal Register on Wednesday, April 18, 2012. That rule added three persons to the Entity List of the EAR (Supplement No. 1 to part 774). However, it misspelled the name and address for one of the persons added to the Entity List. This document corrects those errors. BIS published a second final rule in the Federal Register on Friday, April 27, which added sixteen persons under eighteen entries to the Entity List. That rule misspelled the city used in the address for three of the persons added to the Entity List. This document corrects that error. Lastly, this document removes a hyphen in the address for one of the persons added to the Entity List in the April 27 final rule, to clarify it is an address and not an alias for that person added to the Entity List.

Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Control of Energetic Materials and Related Articles That the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List (USML)
Document Number: 2012-10456
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-05-02
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) publishes this proposed rule describing how energetic materials and related articles that the President determines no longer warrant control under Category V (Explosives and Energetic Materials, Propellants, Incendiary Agents and Their Constituents) of the United States Munitions List (USML) would be controlled under the Commerce Control List (CCL) in new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 1B608, 1C608, 1D608, and 1E608. If implemented, this proposed rule would also control under ECCN 1C111 some of the aluminum powder and hydrazine and derivatives thereof that are now controlled under Category V of the USML. This proposed rule also would control equipment for the ``production'' of explosives and solid propellants, currently controlled under ECCN 1B018.a, and related ``software,'' currently controlled under ECCN 1D018, under new ECCNs 1B608 and 1D608, respectively. In addition, this proposed rule would control commercial charges and devices containing energetic materials, which are currently controlled under ECCN 1C018, under new ECCN 1C608. This is one of a planned series of proposed rules describing how various types of articles that the President determines, as part of the Administration's Export Control Reform Initiative, no longer warrant control on the USML, under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), would be controlled on the CCL in accordance with the requirements of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). This proposed rule is being published in conjunction with a proposed rule from the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, which would amend the list of articles controlled by USML Category V.
