United States Climate Change Science Program
Document Number: 05-1365
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-01-25
Agency: Department of State
In addition to periodic assessments of the science, impacts, and socio-economic aspects of climate change, the IPCC provides, on request, advice to the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its bodies. The Seventh Conference of the Parties (COP) of the UNFCCC expressed interest in carbon capture and storage by inviting the IPCC to prepare a Technical Paper on geological carbon storage technologies. The IPCC noted that a Technical Paper, which is limited in its scope to summarizing existing IPCC reports, would be difficult to produce using the very limited material covered in the IPCC Third Assessment Report. At its 20th session (February 2003), the IPCC decided to prepare a Special Report (which, like a full assessment report, covers all available literature) and approved an outline and schedule. Working Group III is overseeing preparation of this Special Report, which is being written by a team of over 100 authors under established IPCC rules and procedures. The IPCC Secretariat has informed the U.S. Department of State that the second-order SRCCS draft is available for expert and Government review. The Climate Change Science Program Office (CCSPO) is coordinating the solicitation of comments by U.S. experts and stakeholders to inform development of an integrated set of U.S. Government comments on the report. Instructions on how to format comments are available at http://www.climatescience.gov/Library/ipcc/ srccs-review.htm, as is the document itself. Comments must be sent to CCSPO by 23 February 2005 to be considered for inclusion in the U.S. Government collation.

Document Number: 04-28736
Type: Notice

Agency: Bureau of Nonproliferation, Department of State
A determination has been made that nine entities have engaged in activities that require the imposition of measures pursuant to Section 3 of the Iran Nonproliferation Act of 2000, which provides for penalties on entities for the transfer to Iran since January 1, 1999, of equipment and technology controlled under multilateral export control lists (Australia Group, Chemical Weapons Convention, Missile Technology Control Regime, Nuclear Suppliers Group, Wassenaar Arrangement) or otherwise having the potential to make a material contribution to the development of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or cruise or ballistic missile systems. The latter category includes (a) items of the same kind as those on multilateral lists, but falling below the control list parameters, when it is determined that such items have the potential of making a material contribution to WMD or cruise or ballistic missile systems, (b) other items with the potential of making such a material contribution, when added through case-by-case decisions, and (c) items on U.S. national control lists for WMD/missile reasons that are not on multilateral lists. It was also determined that sanctions imposed on a Spanish entity, effective September 23, 2004 (69 FR 4845) pursuant to the Iran Nonproliferation Act of 2000, no longer apply.
