``Specially Designed'' Definition
Document Number: 2012-14475
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-06-19
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
As part of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative, this proposed rule, and a separate proposed rule from the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, being published in conjunction with this document, sets forth, as much as possible, a common definition of the term ``specially designed'' for use in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). The term ``specially designed'' is used widely in the Commerce Control List (CCL) and would play an important role in the ``600 series'' that the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has proposed to create to control less sensitive defense articles transferred from the United States Munitions List (USML) to the Commerce Control List (CCL). The revisions in this rule are part of Commerce's retrospective plan under EO 13563 completed in August 2011.

Feasibility of Enumerating “Specially Designed” Components
Document Number: 2012-14473
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-06-19
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
As part of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative, this ANPRM requests comments on the feasibility of positively identifying ``specially designed'' ``components'' on the Commerce Control List (CCL) so as to decrease the use of the term, which appears extensively throughout the CCL, and thereby facilitate enhanced public compliance with the Export Administration Regulations. Specifically, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is evaluating whether it is feasible to create exhaustive lists of the ``specially designed'' ``components'' referred to in certain Export Control Classification Numbers on the CCL that currently use ``specially designed'' catch-all paragraphs, and seeks public input to assist in this evaluation. If BIS ultimately determines that such lists might be beneficial, it intends to submit these findings to the appropriate multilateral export control regimes in the normal course of list proposal changes. The request for comments in this ANPRM is part of Commerce's retrospective plan under EO 13563 completed in August 2011.

Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Control of Military Training Equipment and Related Items the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List (USML)
Document Number: 2012-14444
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-06-13
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
This proposed rule describes how articles the President determines no longer warrant control under Category IX (Military Training Equipment and Training) of the United States Munitions List (USML) would be controlled under the Commerce Control List (CCL) in new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 0A614, 0B614, 0D614, and 0E614. This rule is one in a planned series of proposed rules describing how various types of articles the President determines, as part of the Administration's Export Control Reform Initiative, no longer warrant USML control, would be controlled on the CCL and by the 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 enumerated in USML Category IX. The revisions in this rule are part of Commerce's retrospective plan under EO 13563 completed in August 2011.

Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Control of Personal Protective Equipment, Shelters, and Related Items the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List (USML)
Document Number: 2012-13745
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-06-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
This proposed rule describes how articles the President determines no longer warrant export control under Category X (Protective Personnel Equipment and Shelters) of the United States Munitions List (USML), would be controlled under the Commerce Control List (CCL) in new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 1A613, 1B613, 1D613, and 1E613. In conjunction with establishing these new ECCNs, this proposed rule would control military helmets (currently controlled under ECCNs 0A018 and 0A988) under new ECCN 1A613 and amend ECCN 1A005 for body armor. This proposed rule also would remove machetes from ECCN 0A988. This is one in a planned series of proposed rules describing how various types of articles the President determines, as part of the Administration's Export Control Reform Initiative, no longer warrant USML control, would be controlled on the CCL and by the EAR. This proposed rule is being published in conjunction with a proposed rule of the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), which would amend the list of articles controlled by USML Category X in the International Traffic In Arms Regulations (ITAR).
