Revisions to the Commerce Control List To Update and Clarify Crime Control License Requirements
Document Number: E9-19099
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-08-11
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
This proposed rule would update and clarify export and reexport license requirements on striking weapons, restraint devices, shotguns and parts, optical sighting devices, and electric shock devices. It would also add equipment designed for executions to the Commerce Control List. This proposed rule would make no changes to the longstanding policy of denial of applications to export or reexport specially designed implements of torture. The proposed rule would provide additional illustrative examples of such items and would adopt a definition of torture used in a U.S. statute that implements the United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. BIS is publishing this rule as part of an ongoing review of crime control license requirements and policy.
