Revision to the Unverified List-Guidance as to “Red Flags”
Document Number: E7-12894
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-05
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 who are parties to 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 and persons affiliated with a person on the Unverified List by virtue of ownership, control, position of responsibility, or other affiliation or connection in the conduct of trade or business. These 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 three entities to the Unverified List. The entities are: Al Minzal Medical Equipment & Instruments, P.O. Box 31107, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates; JSC Chop Vityaz-S, 146 Unikh Pionerov Ave, Samara, Russia; Sistem Dizayners Co., APA: 2 NO.: 60, Merdanov Gardashlari St., Baku, Azerbaijan.

Revisions and Clarification of Export and Reexport Controls for the People's Republic of China (PRC); New Authorization Validated End-User; Revision of Import Certificate and PRC End-User Statement Requirements
Document Number: E7-11588
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-06-19
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
In this final rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to revise and clarify U.S. licensing requirements and licensing policy on exports and reexports of items to the People's Republic of China (PRC). BIS published a revised policy and related amendments in proposed form in the Federal Register with a request for comments. This final rule establishes a control, based on knowledge of a ``military end-use,'' on exports and reexports to the PRC of certain items on the Commerce Control List (CCL) that otherwise do not require a license to the PRC. It also includes a revision to the license application review policy for items destined for the PRC that are controlled on the CCL for reasons of national security, and revises the license review policy for items controlled for reasons of chemical and biological weapons proliferation, nuclear nonproliferation, and missile technology for export to the PRC, requiring that applications involving such items be reviewed in conjunction with the revised national security licensing policy. This rule also creates a new authorization for ``validated end-users'' to which specified items may be exported or reexported without a license. Validated end-users will be placed on a list in the EAR after review and approval by the United States Government. The process for such review is also set forth in this final rule. This rule also revises the circumstances in which End-User Statements, issued by the PRC Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), must be obtained, requiring them for transactions that both require a license to the PRC for any reason and (for most exports) exceed a total value of $50,000. This final rule also includes other minor corrections and conforming amendments.

Amendment to General Order No. 3: Expansion of the General Order and Addition of Certain Persons
Document Number: E7-11126
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-06-08
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
The Bureau of Industry and Security is revising the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by amending a general order published in the Federal Register on June 5, 2006 and later amended on September 6, 2006 to add nine additional persons. The general order imposed a license requirement for exports and reexports of all items subject to the EAR where the transaction involved Mayrow General Trading (``Mayrow'') or entities related, as specified in that general order. The order also prohibited the use of License Exceptions for exports or reexports of any items subject to the EAR involving such entities. This rule will expand the general order and add sixteen additional persons to it. Pursuant to the expansion, the general order will cover: (i) Persons regarding whom the U.S. Government possesses information of affiliation or relationship to Mayrow; and (ii) other persons regarding whom the U.S. Government possesses information concerning the acquisition or attempted acquisition of commodities capable of being used to construct IEDs, as well as persons who are related to or affiliated with such persons. The order will apply to persons specifically listed who fit within either of these two groups. To reflect this expansion, this rule will update the heading of the general order to use the term ``persons''. In total, pursuant to this expansion, this rule will add the following sixteen persons to the general order, listed in alphabetical order: Al-Faris; Ali Akbar Yahya; Amir Mohammad Zahedi; EKT Electronics; Encyclopedia Electronics Center; Frank Lam; GBNTT; Majid Seif; Mohammed Katranji; Neda Industrial Group; Nedayeh Micron Electronics; Sayed-Ali Hosseini; Speedy Electronics Ltd.; United Sources Industrial Enterprises; Vast Solution Sdn Bhd.; and Y-Sing Components Limited.
Additional Corrections to the Rule That Implemented the New Formula for Calculating Computer Performance: Adjusted Peak Performance (APP) in Weighted TeraFLOPS
Document Number: E7-11016
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-06-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau

This rule corrects the availability of the license exception for technology and software under restriction for specified ``software'' and ``technology'' for computers. These additional changes are intended to correct the scope of the license exception in certain Export Control Classification Numbers that were unintentionally narrowed by the rule published on March 22, 2007. In addition, this rule corrects a reference to a nonexistent Export Control Classification Number found in specified ``technology'' for computers.
Authorization To Impose License Requirements for Exports or Reexports to Entities Acting Contrary to the National Security or Foreign Policy Interests of the United States
Document Number: E7-10788
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-06-05
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security, Industry and Security Bureau
The Entity List (Supplement No. 4 to part 744 of the Export Administration Regulations) provides notice to the public that certain exports and reexports to parties identified on the Entity List require a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and that availability of License Exceptions in such transactions is limited. This proposed rule would expand the scope of reasons for which BIS may add parties to the Entity List. This proposed rule would also amend the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to state explicitly that a party listed on the Entity List has a right to request that its listing be removed or modified and would set procedures for addressing such requests.

Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations: UDOC “Change in Inspection Status Form;” Amendments to Records Review and Recordkeeping Requirements; Additions to the List of States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC)
Document Number: E7-5594
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-28
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 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 Chemical Weapons Convention (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 final rule amends 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 will 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, will ensure that the plant site is not 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 will 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 rule also amends 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 revises 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 is 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. This rule amends 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. Finally, this rule updates the list of countries that currently are States Parties to the CWC by adding the Central African Republic and Comoros, which recently became States Parties, and by replacing the listing for Serbia and Montenegro with a separate listing for each country.
