Wassenaar Arrangement 2009 Plenary Agreements Implementation: Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Part I, 6, 7, and 9 of the Commerce Control List, Definitions, Reports

Summary:

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) 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) at the December 2009 WA Plenary Meeting (the Plenary). The Wassenaar Arrangement advocates implementation of effective export controls on strategic items with the objective of improving regional and international security and stability. To harmonize with the changes made to the Wassenaar List at the Plenary, this rule revises the EAR by amending certain entries that are controlled for national security reasons in Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Part I (telecommunications), 6, 7, and 9, revising reporting requirements, and adding, removing and amending EAR Definitions.

The changes agreed to at the Plenary that pertain to Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 5A002, 5D002, 6A002, 6A003, 8A002 and all related ECCNs will be implemented in a separate rule because of the sensitivity of the items and complexity of procedures and controls for these items. The changes agreed to at the Plenary that pertain to raising the Adjusted Peak Performance (APP) for digital computers in ECCN 4A003 will be implemented in a separate rule when the President's report for High Performance Computers has been sent to Congress that sets forth the new APP in accordance with the National Defense Authorization Act for FY1998.

Background

In July 1996, the United States and thirty-three other countries gave final approval to the establishment of a new multilateral export control arrangement called the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement or WA). The Wassenaar Arrangement contributes to regional and international security and stability by promoting transparency and greater responsibility in transfers of conventional arms and dual use goods and technologies, thus preventing destabilizing accumulations of such items. Participating states committed to exchange information on exports of dual use goods and technologies to non-participating states for the purposes of enhancing transparency and assisting in developing a common understanding of the risks associated with the transfers of these items. For more information on the Wassenaar Arrangement go to http://www.wassenaar.org/.

Revisions to the Commerce Control List

This rule revises a number of entries on the Commerce Control List (CCL) to implement the changes to the Wassenaar List of Dual Use Goods and Technologies agreed to at the December 2009 WA Plenary meeting. This rule also revises language to provide a complete or more accurate description of controls in certain ECCNs, as submitted by the Task Force for Editorial Issues (TFEI) and agreed to at the WA Plenary. The following ECCNs are amended by this rule: 1A001, 1A002, 1B001, 1C002, 1C006, 1C007, 1C008, 1C010, 1C011, 1E002, 2B006, 3A001, 3A002, 3B001, 4A001, 4A003, 4D001, 4D993, 4E001, 5A001, 5B001, 5D001, 5E001, 6A001, 6A005, 6A006, 6A008, 6C004, 6D003, 6E993, 7A005, 7B001, 7D003, 7E004, 9A001, 9A003, 9B002, 9D003, and 9E003. ECCN 4D003 is removed by this rule. These changes are described in more detail below.

Category 1—Special Materials and Related Equipment, Chemicals, “Microorganisms,” and Toxins

ECCN 1A001 is amended by adding a Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number and the phrase “having all of the following” to paragraph b to clarify the text.

ECCN 1A002 is amended by:

Revising Note 1 at the beginning of the Items paragraph to change the size of composite structures or laminates used for the repair of “civil aircraft,” to address the increasing usage of carbon materials in commercial aircraft. The current size limit set forth in this ECCN limits the ability of airlines to repair aircraft successfully and in a timely manner because of the time needed to obtain an export license for sizes other than those allowed without license under Note 1 of this ECCN.

ECCN 1B001 is amended by:

—Revising the heading to more precisely describe what is in theentry, by adding the phrases “or inspection”, “structures or laminates”, and “fibrous or filamentary materials” specified by”; and removing the phrase “fibers, prepregs, performs or”.

—Revising the Missile Technology (MT) control paragraph in the License Requirements section by replacing the phrase “entire entry except 1B001.d.4 and .f ” with the phrase “entire entry, except 1B001.d.4, e and f ” and removing the Note that follows the MT control paragraph.

—In 1B001.a, adding a comma after “filament winding machines” and adding the term “primary servo positioning” before axes, which is defined in the technical note of the newly added paragraph 1B001.g.

—In 1B001.b, moving “tow placement machines” to 1B001.g to remove machines capable of more complex airframe and missile structures from this paragraph; moving a comma to correct the punctuation; replacing the phrase “two * * * axes” with “five * * * axes” to focus the control on those capable of manufacturing complex “composite” airframe or missile structures; and adding the term ‘primary servo positioning' before axes to indicate which axes this control pertains to.

—Adding a new paragraph 1B001.g for tow placement machines previously specified by 1B001.b, to establish a separate paragraph for machines capable of more complex airframe and missile structures. This new paragraph is subject to MT controls, as well as National Security (NS) and Anti-Terrorism (AT) controls.

—Adding a new technical note to define `primary servo positioning' throughout 1B001.

ECCN 1C002 is amended by adding the phrase “the powder or particulate” before “material controlled by 1C002.c” in 1C002.b in order to clarify which type of materials are controlled.

ECCN 1C006 is amended by adding a CAS number(s) to paragraph 1C006.c for clarity.

ECCN 1C007 is amended by adding a CAS number to paragraph 1C007.f for clarity.

ECCN 1C008 is amended by adding CAS numbers to paragraphs b.1.a, b.2.a, b.2.b, and b.2.c for clarity.

ECCN 1C010 is amended by:

—Deleting part of the Heading to remove the text beginning with the phrase “which can be used in organic * * *.”. This text is ambiguous and did not contribute to the original intent of the control, and could be interpreted to limit the scope of the control.

—Making editorial changes to 1C010.a.1 and a.2, b.1 and b.2, c.1 and c.2 to remove words that do not add substance or clarity to the control text in these paragraphs.

—Revising the control parameters in 1C010.b.1 “specific modulus” and b.2 “specific tensile strength” for carbon “fibrous or filamentary materials” because of foreign availability outside of WA member countries and to recognize industry improvements to the processing of these materials.

—Revising size of the structures or laminate in the Note to 1C010.b for repair of civil aircraft because a high percentage of the damages to civil aircraft have long, thin, and shallow characteristics caused by ground equipment. Revising the size of these structures or laminate makes them more accessible for the repair of civil aircraft, from an export licensing perspective.

—Adding a new paragraph b to the note to 1C010.b to decontrol certain short carbon fibers that are the product of chopping, milling or cutting, because material properties of 1C010 carbon fibers shorter than 25.0 mm are significantly reduced.

—Revising 1C010.e to have a more consistent format, to treat phenolic resins separately from other resins, and to add a note to direct the public to the correct control text for pre-forms that are not impregnated (i.e., dry).

—Revising the technical note describing “glass transition temperature” to read “Dynamic Mechanical Analysis glass transition temperature (DMA Tg),” to reflect the new term as used in 1C010.e. This rule also implements a new measurement standard ASTM D 7028 in this technical note, which measures the DMA Tg on a cured laminate with clear data interpretation instructions, to reduce errors and inconsistencies associated with measuring resin DMA Tg.

ECCN 1C011 is amended by adding a CAS number(s) to paragraph 1C011.c for clarity.

ECCN 1E002 is amended by adding a CAS number(s) to paragraph 1E002.c.1.c.1 for clarity.

Annex to Category 1 “List of Explosives (See ECCNs 1A004 and 1A008)” is amended by adding CAS number(s) to paragraphs 6 and 35 through 42.

Category 2—Materials Processing

ECCN 2B006 is amended by adding capitalization for correct format and adding a technical note to indicate the required configuration of Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) when calculating the maximum permissible error of indication parameter.

Category 3—Electronics

ECCN 3A001 is amended by:

—Adding a hyphen in the word “space-qualified” in paragraphs 3A001.b.1.a.4.c and e.4, to correct the format of the term.

—Removing the word “density” after output power in paragraph 3A001.b.8.b in order to remove a word that WA never intended to include in this paragraph.

—Adding 3A001.b.11 to control items moved to ECCN 3A001 from 3A002.b. This move makes it clear that the “electronic assemblies” controlled by this entry are components, and not instruments, which is how the assemblies were characterized incorrectly in 3A002.b.

ECCN 3A002 is amended by:

—Revising the License Exception section to remove references to 3A002.b to harmonize with the movement of 3A002.b to 3A001.b11.

—Adding a hyphen in the word “space-qualified” in paragraph 3A002.a.3.b, g.1 and g.3, to correct the format of the term.

—Removing and reserving 3A002.b and incorporating the “frequency synthesizer” “electronic assemblies” controlled by that entry into new paragraph 3A001.b.11. This move makes it clear that these “frequency synthesizer” “electronic assemblies” are components and not instruments, which is how the assemblies were characterized incorrectly in 3A002.b.

—Revising the parameters in paragraph 3A002.e to relax the controls on network analyzers to more accurately differentiate between commercial or civilian applications and applications of strategic concern.

ECCN 3B001 is amended by:

—Revising the control parameters for anisotropic plasma dry etching equipment in 3B001.c to clearly apply the control parameter to device nodes of 65 nm or below in order to make the control of this equipment consistent with current integrated circuit production sizes, to maintain control on more advanced equipment in this ECCN, and to remove controls on older equipment and spare parts that are no longer of proliferation concern.

—Revising the control parameter for automatic loading multi-chamber Central Wafer Handling (CWH) systems in 3B001.e to relax controls on two classes of CWH systems that have been found to be of lessproliferation concern and to place the focus on more advanced CWH.

—Adding technical notes for 3B001.e to provide definitions of two terms used in the control text in order to remove ambiguity in the control.

Category 4—Computers

ECCN 4A001 is amended by:

—Removing a reference to 4A001.b from the Limited Value Shipment (LVS) paragraph of the License Exception section, because paragraph 4A001.b is removed by this rule.

—Adding a reference to Category 5 Part 2 to the Related Controls paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section, to correspond with the removal of 4A001.b, described below.

—Removing and reserving 4A001.b, which stated “Having the characteristics or performing functions exceeding the limits in Category 5, Part 2 (“Information Security”)”, because such hardware and software is controlled under 5A002 and 5D002 in Category 5, Part 2. This change clarifies where this equipment and software is controlled in the CCL.

ECCN 4A003 is amended by:

—Revising the control parameters for equipment specially designed for aggregating the performance of “digital computers” in 4A003.g to move the control threshold up, to account for bi-directional connectivity at double the threshold, as well as to narrow the scope of control to ensure that only the equipment of concern is controlled.

Category 4—Product Group D—Software

—Revising the Note at the beginning to remove the sentence, “The control status of `software' for equipment described in this Category is dealt with herein,” because most software for computers contains encryption, which is controlled in Category 5.

ECCN 4D001 is amended by increasing the APP from 0.1 to 0.25 WT in 4D001.b.1 to account for technological advancements in processor technology and to set an APP that will remain relevant for several years.

ECCN 4D003, “Software having characteristics or performing functions exceeding the limits in Category 5, Part 2 (Information Security),” is removed in order to keep all such software controls in Category 5 part 2.

ECCN 4D993 is amended by revising the Heading in order to remove the reference to ECCN 4D003, which is removed by this rule.

ECCN 4E001 is amended by increasing the APP from 0.1 to 0.25 WT in 4E001.b.1 to account for technological advancements in processor technology and to set an APP that will remain relevant for several years.

Category 5 Part 1—Telecommunications

Note 1 in the beginning of Category 5 Part 1 is amended by removing the word “lasers”, because a new nota bene is added to reference ECCN 6A005 for “lasers” specially designed for telecommunications equipment or systems.

ECCN 5A001 is amended by re-inserting back License Exceptions GBS and CIV in the License Exception section. These were inadvertently removed by the Wassenaar 2008 implementation rule on December 11, 2009 (74 FR 66000).

ECCN 5B001 is amended by removing and reserving paragraphs 5B001.b.1 and b.3 in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section, because these controls are no longer necessary as they have been overtaken by the continued advancement in infrastructure transmission and switching technology, and because of the wide usage of this equipment in commercial applications.

ECCN 5D001 is amended by removing and reserving paragraphs 5D001.d.1 and d.3 in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section, to harmonize with the removal of 5B001.b.1 and b.3 in this rule.

ECCN 5E001 is amended by:

—Revising the total digital transfer rate from 15 Gbit/s to 50 Gbit/s in paragraph 5E001.c.1, to reflect advancement in infrastructure transmission and switching technology.

—Revising the text in the technical note to 5E001.c.1 to make it clear that the control applies to telecommunication switching equipment and to provide additional detail to clarify the text.

—Adding an additional parameter to the existing parameter in 5E001.c.3 to narrow the scope of control.

Category 6—Sensors and Lasers

ECCN 6A001 is amended by:

—Adding 6A001.a.1.e to the list of commodities ineligible for License Exception LVS, because this newly added commodity is on the sensitive list of the Wassenaar Arrangement.

—Revising paragraphs a.1.a and a.1.d in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section, to clarify the text.

—Adding paragraph a.1.e to the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section to control active individual sonars, specially designed or modified to detect, locate and automatically classify swimmers or divers. This new control is necessary to close the loophole that exists for these commercial sonar based detection systems that are nearly equivalent to existing military systems.

ECCN 6A005 is amended by:

—Revising the CW output power from “10W” to “15 W” for individual, multiple-transverse mode semiconductor “lasers” in paragraph d.1.b.1 of the Items paragraph because of worldwide technological advancement.

—Replacing the term “arrays” with “bars” because this is a more appropriate term for this control in paragraph d.1.c. The revisions in this rule include adding a definition for “bar” and “stacked array” in the Technical Notes at the end of 6A005.d.1.

—Revising the CW output power from “80 W” to “100 W” for individual semiconductor laser bars in paragraph d.1.c.1, because the power density export controls otherwise applied to these laser bars provide enough control to justify relaxing the export controls for CW output power in this entry.

—Revising paragraph 6A005.d.1.d from a control over “array stacks of semiconductor laser containing at least one array controlled by 6A005.d.1.c” to a control over “semiconductor laser stacked arrays (two-dimensional arrays), having any of the following * * *” and adding control paragraphs that contain a variation of parameters that include: Wavelength, average or Continuous Wave (CW) total output power, average or CW output “power density,” peak pulsed power density, spatial coherent average or CW total output power, because the existing control was inadequate to control lasers of this type that are militarily critical items.

ECCN 6A008 is amended by:

—Removing the resolution parameter (12 reasonable elements per mm) from the Note at the beginning of the Items paragraph pertaining to displays or monitors used for Air Traffic Control (ATC), because today ATC terminals typically use raster scan displays and the removed parameter is not relevant to raster scan terminals.

—Moving the Note after 6A008.f pertaining to Precision Approach Radar (PAR) equipment to the Note at the beginning of the Items paragraph,for better visibility. The stated intent of paragraph 6A008.f is to capture radar systems that can be used to detect “human movement” or to detect “small sub munitions,” and PARs are not capable of this level of detection.

—Removing the double quotes from around the term “electronically steerable phased array antennae” and removing the word “phased” in 6A008.e, because more advanced radar systems are now using time delay techniques, rather than phase shifters, to electronically steer radar beams. Deletion of the word “phased” will expand the scope of control to capture all electronically steered arrays (ESA), which was the original intent of the control.

Revising the parameter in 6A008.l.4 for data processing subsystems to include controls on radar sensors that are integrated into such subsystems through separate processing equipment such as computers.

ECCN 6C004 is amended by revising 6C004.b and .e to add the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry numbers for better identification of the chemicals that are controlled.

ECCN 6D003 is amended by:

—Adding paragraph 6D003.a.5 to control software or source code, specially designed for real time processing of acoustic data for detection devices. The software is loaded onto standard commercial PCs and is critical for advanced detection and classification.

—Revising paragraph 6D003.h.1 pertaining to Air Traffic Control (ATC) software to account for technological advancements.

Category 7—Navigation and Avionics

ECCN 7A005 is amended by:

—Revising the Heading to capitalize the words associated with the acronym (GNSS), removing the acronyms “GPS and GLONASS,” adding the words “having any of the following,” and moving the parenthetical to the added License Requirements section to harmonize with WA text.

—Adding a License Requirements section that will contain a note stating, “These items are subject to the export licensing authority of the U.S. Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls. See22 CFR part 121.”

—Adding a List of Items Controlled section to harmonize the format with other ECCN entries in the CCL and to provide transparency to the public of the WA text for this ECCN.

ECCN 7B001 is amended by replacing the word “removal” with “disassembly or repair” and removing the phrase “from the SRA” at the end of paragraph 2 in the Related Definitions paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section. This change makes it clear that replacement or removal of gyros, accelerometers, and in some cases the inertial sensor assembly containing these sensors, is considered a “Maintenance Level II” repair. This change also clarifies that these assemblies are generally considered to be Shop Replaceable Assembly (SRA) within the avionics repair industry.

ECCN 7D003 is amended by revising paragraph b.2 to capitalize the words associated with the acronym (GNSS) and delete the parenthetical reference to GPS and GLONASS.

ECCN 7E004 is amended by:

—Adding the word “systems” in two places in the nota bene of paragraph b.6 in the Items paragraph, to reflect amendments made in this rule to 9E003;

—Adding double quotes around “Full Authority Digital Engine Control Systems” and “FADEC Systems” in the nota bene of paragraph b.6 in the Items paragraph, to reflect amendments made in this rule to 9E003;

—Revising the reference in the nota bene in paragraph b.6 of the Items paragraph from “9E003.a.9” to “9E003.h”, to be consistent with the amendments made by this rule to 9E003.

Category 9—Aerospace and Propulsion

ECCN 9A001 is amended by:

—Removing text from the Heading to more accurately reflect the scope of what is controlled in this ECCN and replacing “as follows” with “having any of the following”;

—Revising paragraph 9A001.a by adding “or 9E003.h” to be consistent with amendments made by this rule to 9E003. This revision will result in the control of aero gas turbine engines incorporating any of the technologies controlled by 9E003.h.

ECCN 9A003 is amended by revising the heading to add “or 9E003.h” to be consistent with amendments made by this rule to ECCN 9E003. This will result in the control of specially designed assemblies and components incorporating any of the technologies controlled by 9E003.h for gas turbine engine propulsion systems that meet the parameters of ECCN 9A003.

ECCN 9B002 is amended by revising the heading to add “or 9E003.h” as a consequential change of revision this rule makes to ECCN 9E003. This will result in the control of on-line (real time) control systems, instrumentation (including sensors) or automated data acquisition and processing equipment, specially designed for the “development” of gas turbine engines, assemblies or components incorporating “technologies” controlled by 9E003.h.

ECCN 9D003 is amended by:

—Adding the word “Systems” in two places in the Heading, and adding double quotes around the term “FADEC Systems” to correctly refer to the term as a system;

—Adding the word “system” and adding double quotes around the term “FADEC system” in the NS and MT license requirement paragraphs in the License Requirements section, for consistency;

—Removing the reference to 9A110 in the MT control paragraph of the License Requirements section, because MT does not apply to 9A110.

—Moving the ending double quote from after “FADEC” to after “FADEC systems” in 9D003.b, for consistency.

ECCN 9E003 is amended by:

—Revising the Significant Item (SI) control paragraph in the License Requirements section, to reflect amendments made by this rule in paragraphs 9E003.a.9, h, and i and to correct the SI scope of license requirements. SI controls now apply to 9E003.a.1. through a.8, a.10, h and i;

—Removing and reserving paragraph a.9 in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section in order to add a more detailed control for FADEC systems in 9E003.h;

—Redesignating paragraph h as i and adding a new paragraph h in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section, to add more specific and detailed control paragraphs for “FADEC systems” technology; and

—Revising new paragraph 9E003.i to harmonize references to paragraphs in 9E003 that were revised by this rule.

Section 734.4De minimis U.S. Content

Section 734.4 is amended by removing the phrase “9E003.a.1. through a.11, and .h.” and adding in its place “9E003.a.1 through a.8, a.10, h and i.” in paragraph (a)(4) “Items for which there is no de minimis level.” This change is made to harmonize with revisions to paragraphs ECCN 9E003.a.9, h, and i in this rule.

Section 742.14Significant Items: Hot Section Technology for the Development, Production or Overhaul of Commercial Aircraft Engines, Components, and Systems

This rule harmonizes the list of paragraphs under ECCN 9E003 that are controlled for SI reasons with the list in section 742.14. The paragraphs of ECCN 9E003 that are controlled for SI reasons are 9E003.a.1 through a.8, a.10, h and i.

Section 743.1Wassenaar Arrangement

WA has three levels of control of goods: Basic List, Sensitive List, and Very Sensitive List. As a matter of policy, BIS makes certain items on the WA Basic and Sensitive List eligible for license exceptions. However, because of the U.S. obligations under its agreements to the WA, the U.S. must report on SL items exported outside of the WA membership countries. BIS does this by gathering data from its licensing database. However, to collect data on exports made under license exceptions, BIS requires WA reporting on SL items exported under certain license exceptions. As a result of WA making changes to its Sensitive List, this rule makes corresponding changes to the reporting requirements of section 743.1 of the EAR (e.g., replacing 9E003.a.9 with 9E003.h). This rule revises reporting requirements for ECCNs 4D001, 4E001 and 6A003.b.3. For 6A003.b.3, this rule adds the phrase “except imaging cameras specially designed or modified for underwater use.” For 4D001 and 4E001, this rule revises the APP from “0.1 Weighted TeraFLOPS (WT)” to “0.5 WT.” This rule makes editorial revisions to reporting requirements in ECCN 6A003.b.4. This rule adds WA reporting requirements for ECCNs 6D003.a and 9E003.a.1 and a.3. WA reporting requirements may be found in Section 743.1 of the EAR. Editorial revisions are made to the last sentence in section 743.1(c)(2), to provide the correct description of where to find the guidelines for calculating APP in the EAR.

Supplement No. 2 to Part 744—List of Items Subject to the Military End-Use License Requirement of § 744.21

As a result of WA removing ECCN 4D003, the entry for ECCN 4D993 is revised to remove the reference to ECCN 4D003 in paragraph (4)(ii) of Supp. No. 2 to part 744 of the EAR. This change should not result in any change in license requirements or applications submitted to BIS.

Section 772.1Definitions of Terms as Used in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)

As a result of the decisions reached at the 2009 WA Plenary, this rule removes the following terms from section 772.1 of the EAR: CE, Computing Element, Interconnected radar sensors, Personalized smart card, Q-switched laser, and Three Dimensional Vector Rate. This rule also revises references to categories in many definitions as a result of WA decisions. This rule also adds the following terms as a result of WA agreements: “Energetic materials” (Cat 1), “Fuel cell” (Cat 8), and “Laser duration.” There is no category designation for the term “laser duration,” because it is a term used in the definition of two other terms listed in section 772.1 of EAR, specifically, “average output power” and “peak power.” This rule also revises the following terms: “All compensations available” and removes and replaces references to categories in certain defined terms to be consistent with amendments made by this rule. This rule revises the definition of “all compensations available” by adding the phrase “or measuring errors for the particular coordinate measuring machine.” The definition of “Full Authority Digital Engine Control,” has been completely rewritten. Additionally, the note in the term “peak power” is removed because it included a definition for “laser duration,” which will now be defined as separate term in section 772.1. The WA revisions to definitions do not always coincide with the format of the EAR. For example, when WA removes definitions that are used in unilateral ECCNs, BIS does not remove them, or for example, when WA removes a reference to a category of the CCL, BIS still uses the term in a unilateral entry of the category.

Export Administration Act

Since August 21, 2001, the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, has been in lapse. However, the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which has been extended by successive Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of August 12, 2010, 75 FR 50681 (August 16, 2010) has continued the EAR in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1707).

Saving Clause

Shipments of items removed from license exception eligibility or eligibility for export without a license as a result of this regulatory action that were on dock for loading, on lighter, laden aboard an exporting carrier, or en route aboard a carrier to a port of export, on September 7, 2010, pursuant to actual orders for export to a foreign destination, may proceed to that destination under the previous license exception eligibility or without a license so long as they have been exported from the United States before November 8, 2010. Any such items not actually exported before midnight, on November 8, 2010, require a license in accordance with this regulation.

Rulemaking Requirements

1. This final rule has been determined to be significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866.

2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501et seq.) (PRA), unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This rule involves two collections of information subject to the PRA. One of the collections has been approved by OMB under control number 0694-0088, “Multi Purpose Application,” and carries a burden hour estimate of 58 minutes for a manual or electronic submission. The other of the collections has been approved by OMB under control number 0694-0106, “Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements under the Wassenaar Arrangement,” and carries a burden hour estimate of 21 minutes for a manual or electronic submission. Send comments regarding these burden estimates or any other aspect of these collections of information, including suggestions for reducing the burden, to OMB Desk Officer, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503; and to Jasmeet Seehra, OMB Desk Officer, by e-mail at Jasmeet_K._Seehra@omb.eop.gov or by fax to (202) 395-7285; and to the Office of Administration, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Room 6622, Washington, DC 20230.

3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as that term is defined under Executive Order 13132.

4. The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, the opportunity for public participation, and a delay in effective date, are inapplicable because thisregulation involves a military and foreign affairs function of the United States (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). Immediate implementation of these amendments fulfills the United States' international obligation to the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual Use Goods and Technologies. The Wassenaar Arrangement contributes to international security and regional stability by promoting greater responsibility in transfers of conventional arms and dual use goods and technologies, thus preventing destabilizing accumulations of such items. The Wassenaar Arrangement consists of 40 member countries that act on a consensus basis and the changes set forth in this rule implement agreements reached at the December 2009 plenary session of the WA. Since the United States is a significant exporter of the items in this rule, implementation of this provision is necessary for the WA to achieve its purpose. Any delay in implementation will create a disruption in the movement of affected items globally because of disharmony between export control measures implemented by WA members, resulting in tension between member countries. Export controls work best when all countries implement the same export controls in a timely manner. If this rulemaking was delayed to allow for notice and comment, it would prevent the United States from fulfilling its commitment to the WA in a timely manner and would injure the credibility of the United States in this and other multilateral regimes.

Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be given for this final rule. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for this rule under the Administrative Procedure Act or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601et seq.) are not applicable. Therefore, this regulation is issued in final form. Although there is no formal comment period, public comments on this regulation are welcome on a continuing basis. Comments should be submitted to Sharron Cook, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania Ave., NW., Room 2705, Washington, DC 20230.
