Amendment to the International Arms Traffic in Arms Regulations: The United States Munitions List; Correction
Document Number: E9-16798
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-07-20
Agency: Department of State
The Department of State published a final rule in the Federal Register on September 9, 1994 (59 FR 46548), revising Category XII(c) of the United States Munitions List. The language in the note after paragraph (c) contains a typographical error by using the term ``hold'' instead of ``hole.'' A technical error in that rule resulted in the unintended removal of the note after Category XII paragraph (c). Consequently, a correction was published on April 24, 2009 (74 FR 18628) to restore the language in the note after Category XII paragraph (c). That correction used the term ``hold'' when the correct term is ``hole.'' This document corrects the typographical error dating from September 9, 1994 to utilize the correct term ``hole.''
