Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Revision of U.S. Munitions List Category IV
Document Number: 2013-01901
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-01-31
Agency: Department of State
As part of the President's Export Control Reform effort, the Department of State proposes to amend the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to revise Category IV (launch vehicles, guided missiles, ballistic missiles, rockets, torpedoes, bombs, and mines) of the U.S. Munitions List (USML) to describe more precisely the articles warranting control on the USML. The revisions contained in this rule are part of the Department of State's retrospective plan under E.O. 13563 completed on August 17, 2011. The Department of State's full plan can be accessed at http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/ 181028.pdf. In addition, several ITAR sections addressing the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) Annex are revised to provide a new method of identifying articles common to the MTCR Annex and the USML. And, the ITAR section describing shipments between U.S. possessions is clarified to only encompass those shipments that do not transit a foreign country.
Easing the Ban on Imports From Burma
Document Number: 2013-01991
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-01-30
Agency: Department of State
The Deputy Secretary of State has determined, pursuant to authority delegated by the Secretary of State, that it is in the national interests of the United States to waive the prohibitions described in section 3(a) of the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108-61), as amended (``BFDA''), which requires the President to prohibit the importation of any article that is a product of Burma into the United States, and which the President implemented in section 3 of Executive Order 13310 (July 28, 2003). In conjunction with this waiver determination, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control issued General License (No. 18) on November 16, 2012 authorizing imports into the United States of any article that is a product of Burma, subject to limitations set forth therein. This step is in the national interest of the United States because it supports those in the Burmese government that have instituted important reforms since early 2011 and encourages the government to make further progress. The waiver of the import ban responds to the Government of Burma's continued reforms and efforts to address U.S. core concerns, including the release of political prisoners, and other steps on human rights and national reconciliation.
