Amendment to Existing Validated End-User Authorizations: Hynix Semiconductor China Ltd., Hynix Semiconductor (Wuxi) Ltd., and Boeing Tianjin Composites Co. Ltd. in the People's Republic of China
Document Number: 2012-16724
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-07-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
In this rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to revise the existing Authorization Validated End-User (VEU) listings for three VEUs in the People's Republic of China (PRC). Specifically, BIS amends the EAR to change the names of existing VEUs Hynix Semiconductor China Ltd. and Hynix Semiconductor (Wuxi) Ltd. and their respective ``Eligible Destinations'' in the PRC. Also, BIS amends the list of ``Eligible Items (by ECCN)'' that may be exported, reexported and transferred (in- country) to the approved facility of VEU Boeing Tianjin Composites Co. Ltd. (BTC) in the PRC. These changes are prompted by factors arising from the companies' normal course of business, and are not the result of any activities of concern by the companies.
Request for Public Comments on Shipping Tolerances for Export Licenses Issued by the Bureau of Industry and Security
Document Number: 2012-16401
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-07-05
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
Numerous exporters have expressed interest in establishing an automatic calculation through the Automated Export System (AES) of the shipping tolerance for licenses issued by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) to enhance exporter compliance with the Export Administration Regulations (EAR). In addition, automatic calculation would assist in achieving the goals of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative to harmonize the control lists of the Departments of Commerce and State, and with the transfer of militarily less significant defense articles from the United States Munitions List (USML) to the Commerce Control List (CCL), by making the transfer smoother for exporters since automatic calculation of shipping tolerances is already in place for the primary licenses issued by the Department of State (DSP-5 licenses). BIS seeks public comment to help it ascertain if changes should be made to its shipping tolerance regulations in order to make automatic calculation in AES feasible. BIS is particularly interested in whether a flat percentage should be applied to the dollar value of all controlled items to calculate shipping tolerance or whether another method of calculation should be employed.

Implementation of the Understandings Reached at the 2011 Australia Group (AG) Plenary Meeting and Other AG-Related Clarifications to the EAR
Document Number: 2012-16001
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-07-02
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) publishes this final rule to amend the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement the understandings reached at the June 2011 plenary meeting of the Australia Group (AG). This rule amends the Commerce Control List (CCL) entry in the EAR that controls human and zoonotic pathogens and ``toxins'' and the entry that controls genetic elements and genetically modified organisms to reflect changes to the AG ``List of Biological Agents for Export Control'' that were made based on the understandings adopted at the June 2011 AG plenary meeting. In addition, this rule amends the CCL entries in the EAR that control chemical manufacturing facilities and equipment, and equipment capable of use in handling biological materials to reflect the June 2011 AG plenary changes to the ``Control List of Dual-Use Chemical Manufacturing Facilities and Equipment and Related Technology and Software'' and the ``Control List of Dual-Use Biological Equipment and Related Technology and Software,'' respectively.
Wassenaar Arrangement 2011 Plenary Agreements Implementation: Commerce Control List, Definitions, New Participating State (Mexico) and Reports
Document Number: 2012-15079
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-07-02
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains, as part of its Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Commerce Control List (CCL), which identifies items subject to Department of Commerce export controls. This final rule revises the CCL to implement changes made to the Wassenaar Arrangement's List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar List) maintained and agreed to by governments participating in the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement, or WA) at the December 2011 WA Plenary Meeting (the Plenary). The Wassenaar Arrangement advocates implementation of effective export controls on strategic items with the objective of improving regional and international security and stability. To harmonize the CCL with the changes made to the Wassenaar List at the Plenary, this rule amends entries on the CCL that are controlled for national security reasons in Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Parts I & II, 6, 7, 8, and 9; revises reporting requirements; and adds, removes, and amends definitions in the EAR. This rule raises the Adjusted Peak Performance (APP) parameter for high performance computers. President Obama sent the report required to make this change to Congress on March 16, 2012. This rule also raises the APP eligibility level for deemed exports of computers in License Exception APP. This final rule also revises the CCL and definitions of terms used in the EAR to implement changes to the WA list that pertain to low light level (LLL) items that were agreed upon by the WA in December 2007 through 2011 at the Wassenaar Arrangement Plenary Meetings. Additionally, this rule adds Mexico as the 41st Participating State in the list of WA members in the EAR.

``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. Commerce's full plan can be accessed at: http:// open.commerce.gov/news/2011/08/23/commerce-plan-retrospective -analysis- existing-rules.
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. Commerce's full plan can be accessed at: http://open.commerce.gov/news/2011/08/23/commerce-plan-retros pective- analysis-existing-rules.

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.

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).

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.

Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
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.

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.

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.
