Wassenaar Arrangement 2014 Plenary Agreements Implementation and Country Policy Amendments; Correction
Document Number: 2015-30253
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-12-03
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 certain of the items subject to Department of Commerce jurisdiction. This correction rule revises the Commerce Country Chart by implementing revisions that BIS inadvertently omitted from the ``Wassenaar Arrangement 2014 Plenary Agreements Implementation and Country Policy Amendments'' rule published on May 21, 2015 (80 FR 29442) (``May 21 rule''), for Argentina and South Africa. This rule also implements the Wassenaar Arrangement (WA) agreement to make a clarification to the control text for rebreathing equipment that BIS inadvertently did not make in the May 21 rule. A license requirement note indicating jurisdiction is corrected and a related control note is clarified in an entry on the CCL controlling space launch vehicles and ``spacecraft,'' ``space buses,'' ``spacecraft payloads,'' etc., as the range of the reference was incorrectly stated in the May 21 rule. The reference concerning jurisdiction for ``specially designed'' parts, components, systems and structures, for launch vehicles, launch vehicle propulsion systems or ``spacecraft'' is corrected in the CCL entry controlling such items in this rule. In addition, this rule makes one minor correction to remove Fiji from Column D:5 ``U.S. Arms Embargoed Countries,'' as well as from Country Group D, because Fiji is not listed under any other column within Country Group D and because the Department of State published a final rule that revised the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to rescind the previous policy of denying the export of defense articles and defense services to Fiji. Lastly, this rule removes an outdated reference in the Definitions part of the EAR.
