Impact of Implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention on Commercial Activities Involving “Schedule 1” Chemicals, Including Production of Schedule 1 Chemicals as Intermediates, Through Calendar Year 2010
Document Number: 2010-28689
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-11-15
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is seeking public comments on the impact that implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), through the Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act (CWCIA) and the Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations (CWCR), has had on commercial activities involving ``Schedule 1'' chemicals during calendar year 2010. BIS reminds the public that the CWC, CWCIA, or CWCR have potential impacts on commercial activities whenever Schedule 1 chemicals (e.g., nitrogen mustards) are intermediates in the synthesis of other chemicals, not just when the Schedule 1 chemicals are end products. The purpose of this notice of inquiry is to collect information to assist BIS in its preparation of the annual certification to the Congress, which is required under Condition 9 of Senate Resolution 75, April 24, 1997, in which the Senate gave its advice and consent to the ratification of the CWC.

Amendment to Existing Validated End-User Authorization in the People's Republic of China: Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation
Document Number: 2010-27517
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-11-01
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
In this action, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to remove one facility from the list of Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) facilities that are authorized to receive certain items in the People's Republic of China (PRC) under SMIC's validated end-user (VEU) authorization. Specifically, BIS removes Cension Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (Cension) from SMIC's list of approved VEU facilities in the PRC due to a material change at SMIC. This amendment is not the result of prohibited activities by Cension or by SMIC, nor does it establish any new license requirements or more restrictive licensing policies for exports, reexports or transfers (in- country) of items to the facility identified in this rule; license requirements set forth in the EAR continue to apply to this facility.
