Revisions to the Commerce Control List: Imposition of Controls on Integrated Circuits, Helicopter Landing System Radars, Seismic Detection Systems, and Technology for IR Up-Conversion Devices
Document Number: 2014-24359
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-14
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 impose foreign policy controls on read-out integrated circuits and related ``software'' and ``technology,'' radar for helicopter autonomous landing systems, seismic intrusion detection systems and related ``software'' and ``technology'', and ``technology'' ``required'' for the ``development'' or ``production'' of specified infrared up-conversion devices. The read-out integrated circuits and related ``technology'' are controlled under new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) on the Commerce Control List. An existing ECCN has been amended to control the related ``software'' for those items. New paragraphs have been added to certain existing ECCNs to control radar for helicopter autonomous landing systems, seismic intrusion detection systems, and the ``technology,'' as mentioned, for specified infrared up-conversion devices. Specified existing ``software'' and ``technology'' ECCNs have been amended to apply to helicopter autonomous landing systems and seismic intrusion detection systems. The items are controlled for regional stability reasons Column 1 (RS Column 1) and Column 2 (RS Column 2), and antiterrorism reasons Column 1 (AT Column 1). The Departments of Commerce, State and Defense have determined that imposition of these license requirements protects U.S. national security and foreign policy interests. Specifically, those agencies have determined that the items described in this rule have civilian applications but also warrant immediate controls under the EAR because of their potential military applications.
