Addition of “Montenegro” and “Serbia” as Separate Countries in the Export Administration Regulations Based on U.S. Recognition of Montenegro as a Sovereign State
Document Number: 06-9414
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-11-27
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to add ``Montenegro'' and ``Serbia'' as separate countries in the EAR and to establish separate export licensing requirements for Montenegro and Serbia. BIS is taking this action to update the EAR to reflect the United States' recognition of Montenegro as a sovereign state by the United States.
Implementation of the Understandings Reached at the June 2006 Australia Group (AG) Plenary Meeting; Clarifications and Corrections; Additions to the List of States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC)
Document Number: E6-19825
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-11-24
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is publishing this final rule to amend the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement the understandings reached at the June 2006 plenary meeting of the Australia Group (AG). Specifically, this final rule amends the EAR to reflect changes to the AG ``Control List of Biological Agents'' by revising the Commerce Control List (CCL) entry that controls certain human and zoonotic pathogens and toxins to add certain fungi (i.e., Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii) and toxins (i.e., Shiga-like ribosome inactivating proteins other than verotoxin). Verotoxin continues to be listed under this CCL entry. Prior to the publication of this rule, the fungi Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii and Shiga-like ribosome inactivating proteins other than verotoxin were listed under the CCL entry containing unilaterally controlled select agents and toxins not included on any of the AG Common Control Liststhis rule removes these items from that CCL entry. As a result of the addition of Shiga-like ribosome inactivating proteins other than verotoxin to the CCL entry that controls certain human and zoonotic pathogens and toxins, this rule makes conforming changes to two additional CCL entries (i.e., the CCL entry that controls certain AG-listed genetic elements and genetically modified organisms and the CCL entry that controls vaccines, immunotoxins, medical products, and diagnostic and food testing kits). This rule also amends the EAR to reflect changes to the AG ``Control List of Dual-Use Chemical Manufacturing Facilities and Equipment and Related Technology'' by expanding the scope of the CCL entry that controls certain chemical manufacturing facilities and equipment to include equipment in which all surfaces that come in direct contact with the chemical(s) being processed or contained are made from niobium (columbium) or niobium alloys. In addition, this final rule corrects errors in two CCL entries that were amended by a final rule that BIS published on December 29, 2004. This rule corrects a typographical error involving a Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number in the CCL entry that controls AG-listed precursor chemicals. This rule also corrects an error in the CCL entry that controls certain Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) Schedule 2 or Schedule 3 chemicals not included on any of the AG Common Control Lists by removing the Schedule 3 chemical ethyldiethanolamine. The December 29, 2004, final rule added ethyldiethanolamine to the CCL entry that controls AG-listed precursor chemicals, but failed to remove it from the aforementioned entry. This rule also amends the EAR provisions describing AG-related license requirements and licensing policies to remind applicants that, even if an AG-related item is licensed by ``$ value'' (e.g., human and zoonotic pathogens and toxins, plant pathogens, genetic elements and genetically modified organisms, and select agents and toxins), the EAR still require that the unit of quantity commonly used in the trade be shown on the license application. Finally, this rule updates the list of countries that currently are States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) by adding the Central African Republic and Comoros, which recently became States Parties. As a result of this change, the CW (Chemical Weapons) license requirements and policies in the EAR that apply to these countries now conform with those applicable to other CWC States Parties.

Document Number: E6-19509
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-11-20
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by imposing new foreign policy export and reexport controls on devices primarily useful for the surreptitious interception of wire, oral, or electronic communications classified under Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 5A980. In this rule, BIS also imposes controls on related software and technology by creating ECCNs 5D980 and 5E980. BIS is taking this action in order to prevent the unlawful interception of oral, wire, or electronic communications by terrorists and others who may put the information gained through intercepted communications to an unlawful use, to promote the protection of privacy of oral, wire, or electronic communications; and to protect against threats of terrorism around the world.

Revision to the Unverified List-Guidance as to “Red Flags”
Document Number: 06-8771
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-10-19
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
On June 14, 2002, the Bureau of Industry and Security (``BIS'') published a notice in the Federal Register that set forth a list of persons in foreign countries who were parties to past export transactions where pre-license checks or post-shipment verifications could not be conducted for reasons outside the control of the U.S. Government (``Unverified List''). Additionally, on July 16, 2004, BIS published a notice in the Federal Register that advised exporters that the Unverified List would also include persons in foreign countries in transactions where BIS is not able to verify the existence or authenticity of the end-user, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee, or other party to the transaction. Those notices advised exporters that the involvement of a listed person as a party to a proposed transaction constitutes a ``red flag'' as described in the guidance set forth in Supplement No. 3 to 15 CFR part 732, requiring heightened scrutiny by the exporter before proceeding with such a transaction. This notice adds fourteen entities to the Unverified List. The entities are: Semicom Technology International LLC, in the UAE, Amiran Trading Company in the UAE, Sarelica (Sar Elica) FZC in the UAE, Fuchs Oil Middle East in the UAE, Parto Abgardan in the UAE, Vitaswiss Limited in the UAE, Al-Thamin General Trading LLC, in the UAE, Reza Nezam Trading in the UAE, Davood Khosrojerdi, dba Al Musafer Tourism and Cargo in the UAE, Part Tech Co., in the UAE, Bazar Trading Co., in the UAE, Al Aarif Factory Equipment Trading LLC in the UAE, Centre Bright Company in Hong Kong, and IC Trading Ltd., in Russia.
Revised “Knowledge” Definition, Revision of “Red Flags” Guidance and Safe Harbor
Document Number: E6-17265
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-10-18
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
BIS is withdrawing a proposed rule published October 2004. That rule would have revised the definition of ``knowledge'' in the Export Administration Regulations. It also would have updated the ``red flags'' guidance and would have provided a safe harbor from liability arising from knowledge under the definition of that term. In light of the public comments received on the proposed rule and BIS's review of relevant provisions of the existing regulations, this proposed rule is being withdrawn.

Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations: UDOC “Change in Inspection Status Form;” Amendments to Records Review and Recordkeeping Requirements
Document Number: E6-16597
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-10-06
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) is publishing this proposed rule to amend the Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations (CWCR) to expedite the collection of information concerning the inspection status of plant sites that produce unscheduled discrete organic chemicals (UDOCs) subject to the declaration requirements of the CWCR, to clarify the scope of the CWCR records review and recordkeeping requirements, and to update the maximum civil penalty that may be imposed for violations of the CWCR restrictions on imports of CWC Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 chemicals. The CWCR include requirements to declare certain activities, involving scheduled chemicals and UDOCs, and to provide access for on-site verification by international inspectors of certain declared facilities in the United States. Specifically, this proposed rule would amend the CWCR by revising the annual declaration requirements for UDOCs to allow a ``declared'' plant site currently subject to inspection, which anticipates that its production of UDOCs during the current calendar year will be below the inspection threshold level indicated in the CWCR, to submit a Change in Inspection Status Form to BIS by December 15th of the current calendar year. In addition, any such UDOC plant site containing at least one plant that anticipates producing an individual PSF chemical (i.e., a UDOC containing the elements phosphorus, sulfur or fluorine) in quantities that exceed the declaration threshold for such chemicals would have the option of submitting its Annual Declaration on Past Activities, in lieu of a Change in Inspection Status Form, by December 15th of the current calendar year. Otherwise, the CWCR require that the Annual Declaration on Past Activities be submitted by February 28th of the following year. The information provided to BIS, as a result of this change, would ensure that the plant site would not be subject to inspection during the first 90 days of the next calendar year (i.e., the year after the UDOC activities took place), which is the period when the United States compiles its annual declaration on past activities for submission to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). In addition, this information would strengthen the verification regime of the CWC by allowing the OPCW to schedule inspections, on a year-round basis, of those UDOC facilities in the United States that meet or exceed the inspection threshold level indicated in the CWCR. This proposed rule would also amend the CWCR by revising the records review provisions to clarify that a facility must provide the OPCW Inspection Team with access to all supporting materials and documentation used by the facility to prepare declarations and to otherwise comply with the CWCR, including records related to activities that have taken place at the facility since the beginning of the previous calendar year (i.e., up to and including the date of the inspection), even if the facility has not submitted its current year Annual Declaration on Past Activities to BIS at the time the inspection takes place. In addition, this rule would revise the CWCR records review and recordkeeping requirements to clarify that the types of records that are subject to these requirements include all supporting materials and documentation associated with the movement into, around, and from the facility of declared chemicals and their feedstock or any product chemicals formed from such chemicals and feedstock. The purpose of this clarification would be to ensure that the CWCR records review and recordkeeping requirements fully conform with the inspection aims described in the inspection provisions of the CWCR, which include verifying the absence of Schedule 1 chemicals and the non-diversion of Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 chemicals. Finally, this rule would amend the enforcement provisions of the CWCR to increase the maximum civil penalty that may be imposed for violations of the CWCR restrictions on imports of CWC Schedule 1 or Schedule 2 chemicals from $11,000 to $50,000 to reflect amendments to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) made by the USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005, which was enacted on March 9, 2006.

Document Number: 06-7385
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-09-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains the Commerce Control List (CCL), which identifies items subject to Department of Commerce export controls. This final rule revises the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement changes made to the Wassenaar Arrangement's List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar List), and Statements of Understanding maintained and agreed to by governments participating in the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement, or WA.) The Wassenaar Arrangement advocates implementation of effective export controls on strategic items with the objective of improving regional and international security and stability. To accommodate the changes to the Wassenaar List, this rule revises the EAR by amending certain entries that are controlled for national security reasons in Categories 1, 2, 3, 5 Part I (Telecommunications), 5 Part II (Information Security), 6, 8, and 9, and by amending the EAR Definitions. The purpose of this final rule is to make the necessary changes to the CCL, definitions of terms used in the EAR, and Wassenaar reporting requirements to implement Wassenaar List revisions that were agreed upon in the December 2005 Wassenaar Arrangement Plenary Meeting. In addition, this rule adds Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, South Africa, and Malta to the list of Wassenaar participating states in the EAR, which brings the total number of participating states to 40. This rule also adds or expands unilateral U.S. controls and national security controls on certain items to make them consistent with the amendments made to implement the Wassenaar Arrangement's decisions.

The Bureau of Industry and Security is revising the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by amending a general order published on June 5, 2006 in the Federal Register to add nine additional entities related to Mayrow General Trading. That general order imposed a license requirement for exports and reexports of all items subject to EAR where the transaction involved Mayrow General Trading or entities related, as specified in that general order.

Implementation in the Export Administration Regulations of the United States' Rescission of Libya's Designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism and Revisions Applicable to Iraq
Document Number: 06-7255
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-08-31
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
In this rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement the June 30, 2006 rescission of Libya's designation as a state sponsor of terrorism. The rescission followed the President's May 15, 2006 submission of a report to Congress certifying that Libya had not provided any support for international terrorism during the preceding six months and that Libya had provided assurances that it would not support future acts of international terrorism. To implement the rescission, BIS amends the EAR by removing Libya from the list of terrorist supporting countries in Country Group E:1, and by making other conforming amendments and related revisions throughout the EAR. In particular, Libya is added to Country Group D:1 and remains in Country Groups D:2, D:3, and D:4. This rule also revises the EAR to reflect the fact that in October 2004 the United States rescinded Iraq's designation as a state sponsor of terrorism. As a result of the rescission of this designation, BIS may no longer control for anti-terrorism (AT) reasons items covered by eight export control classification numbers (ECCNs) for which BIS previously required a license for export or reexport to Iraq, or for transfer within Iraq. Note that BIS now controls these items for regional stability (RS) reasons and continues to require a license for their export or reexport to Iraq, or transfer within Iraq. This rule also amends the EAR to delete all references to Iraq's status as a Designated State Sponsor of Terrorism.
