Wassenaar Arrangement 2010 Plenary Agreements Implementation: Commerce Control List, Definitions, Reports

Summary:

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains, as part of the agency's Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Commerce Control List (CCL), which identifies items subject to Department of Commerce export controls. This final rule revises the CCL 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 2010 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 the CCL with the changes made to the Wassenaar List at the Plenary, this rule amends entries on the CCL that are controlled for national security reasons in Categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Parts I & II, 6, 7, 8, and 9, revises reporting requirements, and adds and amends definitions in the EAR.

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 the following 53 ECCNs 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 2010 WA Plenary meeting: 1A002, 1A004, 1B001, 1C003, 1C006, 1C008, 1C010, 1C011, 1C111, 2A001, 2B001, 2B005, 2B006, 3A001, 3A002, 3A991, 3B001, 3C001, 3E001, 4A001, 5A001, 5D001, 5E001, 5A002, 5D002, 5E002, 6A001, 6A002, 6A003, 6A005, 6A006, 6A008, 6D001, 6D003, 6E001, 6E002, 6E003, 7A001, 7A002, 7A003, 7E004, 8A001, 8A002, 9A001, 9A003, 9A991, 9B001, 9B002, 9B008, 9D003, 9D004, 9E001 and 9E003. These changes are described in more detail below.

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

ECCN 1A002 is amended by:

Removing the phrase “finished or” from Notes 2 and 3, because finished products are not generally specified based on the materials they contain.

Adding a new Note 4 to convey that ECCN “1A002 does not apply to finished items specially designed for a specific application.”

ECCN 1A004 is amended by:

Deleting the phrase “Nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC)” from 1A004.c, because it conflicts with the list in 1A004.c, as it is missing radioactive materials, and is redundant to the list.

Changing the format of the civil industries from a narrative list to an enumerated list formatin paragraph (b) of the Note to 1A004 that is located after the Notes to paragraph 1A004.d, as well as replacing the “and” to “or” between the phrases “residential safety” and “civil industries” in this same paragraph (b) of this same Note. These changes are made to clarify the meaning of the note.

ECCN 1B001 is amended by:

Adding the phrase “specially designed or modified,” removing the words “to manufacture,” and adding the word “for” to paragraph 1B001.c to clarify that common textile weaving and interlacing machines are not intended to be controlled. In addition, the note is removed because the new text makes the note unnecessary.

ECCN 1C003 is amended by replacing, for the sake of clarity, the phrase “initial permeability” with “initial relative permeability” in the technical note of paragraph 1C003.a.

ECCN 1C006 is amended by:

Revising the format of the parameters in 1C006.c from a narrative to a cascaded list format to clarify the text.

Removing 1C006.e to correct the text. This paragraph was the last paragraph of a technical note that was moved in 2009 from 1C006.d to the end of 1C006.a.2.e. This paragraph was inadvertently not removed when the technical note was moved.

ECCN 1C008 is amended by:

Removing “Non-fluorinated polymeric substances” and adding in its place “Imides” in 1C008.a, and adding the word “compounds” to 1C008.b.1, to better describe the scope of the paragraphs that follow.

Adding “(PAI) having a `glass transition temperature (T g)' exceeding 563 K (290° C)” to 1C008.a.2—Aromatic polyamide-imides, which adds a temperature property as a parameter.

Adding the word “compounds” to 1C008.b.1 to add a more complete description of the scope of the paragraphs that follow.

Removing the CAS numbers for all the compounds in 1C008.b.1.a, because CAS numbers are used to describe specific substances, not compounds.

Adding the word “acids” to 1C008.b.2 to better describe the scope of the paragraphs that follow.

Adding a new sentence about the PAI test to the technical note at the end of the items paragraph of 1C008.PAI varnishes are sometimes sold and these contain PAI polymers that are only partially polymerized. The added language therefore explains that the T g parameter should be determined using a PAI specimen that is properly cured to reach a maximum capability.

ECCN 1C010 is amended by:

Revising the narrative format to a cascaded format in Note 2 to 1C010.e, in order to add a new paragraph (b) to this note to convey that “Fully or partially resin-impregnated or pitch-impregnated mechanically chopped, milled or cut carbon “fibrous or filamentary materials” 25.0 mm or less in length when using a resin or pitch other than those specified by 1C008 or 1C009.b.” are not controlled under 1C010.e.

Amending the technical note at the end of ECCN 1C010 by splitting it into two separate sentences (ending the first sentence after “specimen”), for better readability and clarity. Also, this rule removes the phrase “with a minimum 90% degree of cure” and adding in its place “In the case of thermoset materials, degree of cure of a dry test specimen shall be a minimum of 90%” to clarify the scope of “degree of cure” in the definition for `Dynamic Mechanical Analysis glass transition temperature (DMA T g)'.

ECCN 1C011 is amended by:

Revising the Missile Technology (MT) paragraph in the License Requirements section because WA has now aligned with the Missile Technology Control Regime in controls for boron and boron alloys; therefore, the parenthetical phrase “for boron” is removed and the MT control applies to both the boron and the boron alloy in 1C011.b.

Adding a new sentence to number 2 of the Related Controls paragraph to indicate that “the following are subject to the export licensing authority of the U.S. Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls” and adding “metal powders mixed with other substances to form a mixture formulated for military purposes” to the end of the existing list that includes materials controlled by 1C011.a.

Replacing the word “carbide” with “alloys” in 1C011.b for boron, and cascading the parameters in two new paragraphs 1C011.b.1 and 1C001.b.2 in order to align with controls under the Missile Technology Control Regime, to make the text more clear, and to recognize the foreign availability and decreased use of boron carbide for military uses.

ECCN 1C111 is amended by adding a note 3 to the Related Controls paragraph to reference ECCN 1C011 for boron and boron alloys, and by removing paragraph 1C111.a.2.b “Boron alloys with a purity of 85% by weight or more” because this control is now in 1C011.b.

Category 2—Materials Processing

ECCN 2A001 is amended by:

Removing reference to 2A001.b from the License Exceptions GBS and CIV eligibility paragraphs in ECCN 2A001, because this paragraph is removed and reserved by this rule.

Removing one of the standards “or ANSI/ABMA Std 20 Tolerance Class ABEC-7 or RBEC-7” from paragraph 2A001.a and leaving only “or other national equivalents” because this language sufficiently describes the applicable standard for the control.

Removing and reserving paragraph 2A001.b, that controlled specified ball bearings and solid roller bearings because of the wide foreign availability of these commodities.

ECCN 2B001 is amended by removing the phrase “Having two or more rotary axes and all of the following” and adding in its place “At least two rotary axes having all of the following” to clarify the scope of the 2B001.e.2.

ECCN 2B005 is amended by removing the phrase “allowing for the” and adding in its place “capable of” to clarify the control in the introductory text of 2B005.g.

ECCN 2B006 is amended by:

Replacing the phrase “indication (MPEE)” with “length measurement (E 0,MPE)” to harmonize with the new ISO standard and replacing the year of the ISO standard from “2001” to “2009” in 2B006.a.

Replacing the acronym “MPEE” with “E 0,MPE” in the Technical Note following 2B006.a to harmonize with the new ISO standard.

Replacing the phrase “Machine tools, which” with “2B006 includes machine tools, other than those specified by 2B001, that” to clarify the Note following paragraph 2B006.c.

Removing two superfluous phrases “are controlled” and “the machine tool function or” from the Note following paragraph 2B006.c.

Category 3—Electronics

ECCN 3A001 is amended by:

Removing paragraph 3A001.a.4 from the License Exception CIV eligibility paragraph in the License Exceptions section, because 3A001.a.4 is removed by this rule.

Removing and reserving paragraph 3A001.a.4 “Storage integrated circuits manufactured from a compound semiconductor,” because the circuits of concern are covered by 3A001.a.2.

Adding the word “Converter” to “Analog-to-Digital,” adding capitalization, and adding the acronyms (ADC) and (DAC) to paragraph 3A001.a.5.

Replacing “Analog-to-digital converters” with “ADCs” in 3A001.a.5.a and Note 2 of the technical note located after 3A001.a.5.b for consistency.

Revising the output rate for Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) in 3A001.a.5.a.2, a.5.a.3, a.5.a.4, and a.5.a.5 from “200 million words per second” to “300 million words per second,” “105 million words per second” to “200 million words per second,” “10 million words per second” to “125 million words per second,” and “2.5 million words per second” to “20 million words per second,” respectively. These revisions are made because the speeds and capabilities of digital signal processing have advanced significantly since the last revision to these control parameters.

The Technical Notes that appeared after paragraph 3A001.a.5.b are moved to after 3A001.a.5.a.5. In addition, this rule moves the last half of Technical Note 3 to Note 6 and moves Note 4 to Note 7, and adds new notes 4, 5, 8, and 9 to address aggregation of ADCs.

Revising the parameters for Digital-to-Analog Converters (DAC) in 3A001.a.5.b to better describe the crucial benchmarks for evaluating DAC devices, as well as adding four new technical notes that include two new technical terms: “adjusted update rate” and “Spurious Free Dynamic Range” (SFDR).

Revising the upper threshold of the frequency parameter from 6 GHz to 6.8 GHz for Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuits (MMIC) power amplifiers in paragraphs 3A001.b.2.a and b.2.b, for discrete microwave transistors in paragraphs 3A001.b.3.a and b.3.b, for microwave solid state amplifiers and microwave assemblies/modules containing microwave solid state amplifiers in paragraphs 3A001.b.4.a and b.4.b, and for the technology for the development or production of MMIC power amplifiers in paragraphs 5E001.d.1 and d.2, because the prevalent bands for commercial satellite communications are 5.7 GHz to 6.7 GHz.

Adding a new parameter to paragraphs 3A001.b.2.d and b.2.f that reads “and with an average output power greater than 0.1 nW” for MMICs to narrow the scope of controls.

Removing and reserving Note 1 to 3A001.b.2 relating to broadcast satelliteequipment, because this entry controls components, not equipment.

Adding the words “product group” to Note 3 to 3A001.b.2 to clarify the text.

Adding a new parameter to paragraphs 3A001.b.3.e that reads “and with an average output power greater than 0.1 nW” for discrete microwave transistors to narrow the scope of this control.

Adding a new parameter to paragraphs 3A001.b.4.c and b.4.e that reads “and with an average output power greater than 0.1 nW” for microwave solid state amplifiers and microwave assemblies/modules containing microwave solid state amplifiers to narrow the scope of controls for these items.

Removing and reserving Note 1 after 3A001.b.4.f.3 concerning broadcast satellite equipment, because 3A001 does not control equipment but components, in this case Microwave or Millimeter Wave Components. In addition, Note 1 is not necessary, because MMICs specially designed for satellite broadcast equipment are not controlled by Category 3 pursuant to Note 1 at the beginning of Category 3.

Removing the phrase “from one selected frequency to another” from 3A001.b.11 because it is redundant with the term “frequency switching.”

ECCN 3A002 is amended by:

Revising the parameters for radio-frequency signal analyzers in paragraphs 3A002.c to revise control thresholds to more accurately differentiate between commercial/civilian applications and applications of strategic concern by changing the controls from frequency only to a combination of frequency and other parameters. This change includes the redesignation of 3A002.c.3 to c.4 and the addition of a new paragraph 3A002.c.3.

Revising and rearranging the narrative in 3A002.c.1 to more clearly describe the radio-frequency signal analyzers.

This rule introduces a new parameter, “Displayed Average Noise Level,” in 3A002.c.2. This control protects the applications (principally advanced radar) that are of national security concern. Specifically, this revision relaxes the controls in 3A002.c.2 by adding the additional control parameter, “Displayed Average Noise Level,” that applies to the current frequency parameter of between 43.5 and 70 GHz.

Adding a new control in 3A002.c.3 for signal analyzers having a frequency exceeding 70 GHz.

Revising the “real-time bandwidth” for “dynamic signal analyzers” from “500 kHz” to “40 MHz” in the newly designated paragraph 3A002.c.4 to respond to emerging communications standards and available test equipment as “dynamic signal analyzers” approach 40 MHz in bandwidth.There is growing application of “dynamic signal analyzers” with “real-time bandwidth” above 40 MHz bandwidth in military applications.

Replacing the reference in the Note following 3A002.c.4 from “3A002.c.3” to “3A002.c.4” to harmonize it with the addition of paragraph 3A002.c.3.

Revising paragraphs 3A002.d.1, d.2 and the introductory text to d.4 relating to frequency synthesized signal generators to revise control thresholds to more accurately differentiate between purely civilian applications and those of strategic concern. These revisions are being implemented by changing the entry from one solely based on frequency to a combination of frequency and other parameters, such as output power.

Revising 3A002.d.3.e and adding d.3.f to clarify the frequency switching controls by defining switching times and windows within the range 43.5-70 GHz.

Revising the introductory text for 3A002.d.4 to add an upper limit to the frequency switching control of 70 GHz.

Removing an “or” at the end of paragraph 3A002.d.3.d and adding it to the end of paragraph 3A002.d.3.e, because of the addition of new paragraph d.3.f. An “or” is added at the end of paragraph 3A002.d.4.b, because of the addition of new paragraph 3A002.d.5. These controls protect the applications (principally advanced radar) that are of national security concern. Finally, the umbrella control on signal generators ``> 70 GHz” is moved to new paragraph 3A002.d.5. Specifically, this revision relaxes the frequency threshold from the current value of 43.5 GHz to 70 GHz by clarifying that other control parameters apply between 43.5 and 70 GHz. This approach addresses emerging civilian telecommunications standards in the 56-67 GHz band by defining performance parameters.

ECCN 3A991 is amended by replacing the control level for Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) in paragraph 3A991.c with the former control levels for ADCs in ECCN 3A001.a.5.a. Therefore, ADCs in 3A991.c.1 having a resolution of 8 bit or more, but less than 12 bit are amended by revising the output rate from “greater than 100 million words per second” to “greater than 200 million words per second.” ADCs in 3A991.c.2 having a resolution of 12 bit are amended by revising the output rate from “greater than 5 million words per second” to “greater than 105 million words per second.” ADCs in 3A991.c.3 having a resolution of more than 12 bit but equal to or less than 14 bit are amended by revising the output rate from “greater than 500 thousand words per second” to “greater than 10 million words per second.” ADCs in 3A991.c.4 having a resolution of more than 14 bit are amended by revising the output rate from “greater than 500 thousand words per second” to “greater than 2.5 million words per second.” These changes are made because of the technological advances in the field of ADCs and because raising the control level for ADCs destined to anti-terrorism countries will not pose a national security threat to the United States.

Pursuant to the EAR, those ADCs that are now classified as EAR99 still require a license for export to Cuba, North Korea, and Syria, because a license is required for export of all items subject to the EAR to these countries. EAR99 ADCs destined to Iran and Sudan may require a license pursuant to the EAR if destined to a restricted end-user or end-use. (See General Prohibitions 4 through 10 in Part 736 of the EAR.) Also note that the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) administers comprehensive trade embargoes against Iran and Sudan, and exports or reexports of EAR99 ADCs to those countries are subject to OFAC's regulations. See 31 CFR part 538—the Sudanese Sanctions Regulations and 31 CFR part 560—the Iranian Transactions Regulations.

ECCN 3B001 is amended by:

Revising the critical dimension of semiconductor devices by plasma enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) equipment from “180 nm or less” to “65 nm or less” in paragraph 3B001.d.1 and d.2 to account for technical advances in the industry of semiconductor manufacturing.

Capitalizing “Minimum Resolvable Feature” size and adding the acronym (MRF) in paragraph 3B001.f.1.b and in the technical note that follows.

Revising the feature size from “180 nm” to “95 nm” for align and expose step and repeat (direct step on wafer) or step and scan (scanner) equipment in 3A001.f.1.b and for imprint lithography equipment in paragraph 3B001.f.2.

Revising the K factor from “0.45” to “0.35” in the Technical Note following 3B001.f.1.b to align with advancing technology.

ECCN 3C001 is amended by removing the text in the Related Definitions paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section and adding in its place “N/A” to correct the Related Definitions paragraph.

ECCN 3E001 is amended by revising the parameter in paragraph (a) of Note 2 from “of 0.5 µm or more; and” to “at or above 0.130 µm,” to accommodate advances in technology and increasing civil application of that technology.

Replacing the current text in paragraph (b) of Note 2 “Not incorporating multi-layer structures” with “Incorporating multi-layer structures with three or fewer metal layers” to expand the exclusion note.

In addition, this rule removes the technical note in Note 2 of 3E001 because the note is no longer necessary due to the revision to paragraph (b) of Note 2.

Category 4—Computers

ECCN 4A001 is amended by:

Adding the phrase “or “civil aircraft”” to the Note to 4A001.a.1, because some civil aircraft computers often reach the thresholds in 4A001.

Revising the single event upset rate in 4A002.a.2.c from “1 × 10−7” to “1 × 10−8” because of advances in this technology. A Note is added to 4A001.a.2 to clarify that this provision does not apply to computers specially designed for “civil aircraft” applications to prevent this control from inadvertently capturing onboard civil aircraft computers.

Category 5 Part I— Telecommunications

Category 5 Part 1 is amended by adding a second Nota Bene(N.B.2.) after Note 1 at the beginning of the category to close a potential loophole in relation to items incorporating or using cryptography or other “information security” functionality, including encryption, “cryptanalysis” and “cryptographic activation.” Note 1 could be read to require that all telecommunications items should only be classified using Category 5 Part 1 even if they incorporate or use cryptography or other “information security” functionality, when, in fact, the control status of “information security” items is determined using Category 5 Part 2 . The second Nota Bene clarifies that any item that is designed for telecommunications and incorporates or uses cryptography should also be classified using Category 5 Part 2.

ECCN 5A001 is amended by:

Replacing the text in paragraph 5A001.c with the text in paragraph 5A001.c.1 “Optical fiber communication cables, optical fibers and accessories, as follows:”. Also, adding an “and” between “length” and “specified” in the new 5A001.c (former 5A001.c.1). The Nota Bene(N.B. 1) that reads “For underwater umbilical cables, and connectors thereof, see 8A002.a.3.” is moved from 5A001.c.2 to after 5A001.c, revised by removing the phrase “, and connectors thereof” and relabeled from “N.B. 1” to “N.B.”

5A001.c.2, the exclusion Note and Nota Bene2 that follows it are deleted, because they no longer serve a purpose.

Replacing “electronic” with “radio frequency (RF) transmitting” and replacing “Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (RCIED)” with “Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)” in paragraph 5A001.h to clarify the text. Also, adding a new reference to ECCN 5A001.f in the Nota Bene of 5A001.h to reference 5A001.f and Category XI of the ITAR where radio transmission equipment is controlled. In addition, 5A001.h is moved from NS Column 2 controls to NS Column 1 controls because Radio Frequency (RF) transmitting equipment designed or modified for prematurely activating or preventing the initiation of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are now listed on the Wassenaar Arrangement's Very Sensitive List. License Exceptions LVS, GBS, and CIV are no longer available, for 5A001.h items because they have been added to the Wassenaar Arrangement's Very Sensitive List.

ECCN 5D001 is amended by:

Revising the License Exceptions section by removing License Exception CIV eligibility for “software” controlled by 5D001.a and specially designed for the “development” or “production” of items controlled by 5A001.h; and removing License Exception TSR eligibility for exports and reexports to destinations outside of Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, or the United Kingdom of “software” controlled by 5D001.a and specially designed for the “development” or “production” of items controlled by 5A001.h. “Software” controlled by 5D001.a and specially designed for the “development” or “production” of items controlled by 5A001.h are on the Wassenaar Arrangement's Very Sensitive List.

ECCN 5E001 is amended by:

Removing License Exception TSR eligibility for exports or reexports to destinations outside of Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, or the United Kingdom of “technology” controlled by 5E001.a for the “development” or “production” of items controlled by 5A001.h; or“software” controlled by 5D001.a that is specially designed for the “development” or “production” of equipment, functions or features controlled by 5A001.h.

Adding a new Note for 5E001.b.4 to exclude “technology” for the “development” of civil cellular radio-communications systems from control under 5E001, because this technology is commercial and does not warrant national security controls.

Raising the frequency parameter from 6.0 GHz to 6.8 GHz for technology for the “development” and “production” of Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuit (MMIC) power amplifiers specially designed for telecommunications in 5E001.d.1 and d.2, because a primary segment of the high power amplifier market is for commercial satellite communications (TV and Internet traffic) and meteorological radar within the standard ITU bands. The prevalent bands for commercial satellite communications are 5.7GHz to 6.7 GHz and 13.75GHz to 14.5GHz.

Category 5 Part II—“Information Security”

ECCN 5A002 is amended by:

Revising the EI paragraph in the License Requirements section to add paragraph 5A002.b.

Revising Note 1 in the Related Controls paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section to add paragraph (j) to the first sentence, as paragraph (j) has been added to the decontrol Note of ECCN 5A002.

Replacing a period with a semicolon in paragraph (a)(2) of the Note at the beginning of the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section to correct the punctuation.

Removing “or” from paragraph .g and removing the period at the end of paragraph .i and adding in its place “; or” in the Note at the beginning of the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section.

Adding a new paragraph .j to the decontrol notes in ECCN 5A002 for equipment where the encryption cannot be used or can only be made useable by means of “cryptographic activation,” as specified, as well as adding a new Nota Bene(N.B.) to reference 5A002.a for equipment that has undergone “cryptographic activation.” This new note is added to clarify the treatment of equipment with dormant cryptography.

Adding a new control paragraph 5A002.b to control systems, equipment, application specific electronic assemblies, modules and integrated circuits, designed or modified to enable an item to achieve or exceed the controlled performance levels for functionality specified by 5A002.a thatwould not otherwise be enabled. This addition is made to address the issue of mechanisms that are used to upgrade the cryptographic functionality of equipment to performance levels specified by 5A002.a, when the equipment would not be controlled under 5A002.a (i.e., would not perform controlled cryptographic functions) without these upgrades.

These changes are intended to clarify existing policy regarding the treatment of products with dormant cryptography. They are not a new control on these products.

ECCN 5D002 is amended by:

Revising the EI control paragraph by removing the phrase “5D002.a or c.1” and adding in its place “5D002.a,.c.1, or .d” in the License Requirements section.

Adding a new paragraph 5D002.d to control “software” designed or modified to enable an item to achieve or exceed the controlled performance levels for functionality specified by 5A002.a that would not otherwise be enabled. This addition is made to address the issue of mechanisms that are used to upgrade the cryptographic functionality of equipment or “software” to performance levels specified by 5A002.a (note: 5D002 “software” is classified according to performance levels specified by 5A002), when the equipment or “software” would not be controlled under 5A002.a or 5D002 (i.e., would not perform controlled cryptographic functions) without these upgrades.

ECCN 5E002 is amended by:

Moving the text of the Heading to 5E002.a and adding in its place “Technology” as follows:”

Revising the EI control paragraph in the License Requirement section by removing the phrase “ECCNs 5A002 or 5D002.a or 5D002.c” and adding in its place “ECCNs 5A002 or 5D002” to succinctly indicate what is EI controlled under ECCN 5E002.

Removing the text following the Items paragraph, which states “The list of items controlled is contained in the ECCN heading” and adding in its place a control paragraph 5E002.a to control “technology” according to the General Technology Note for the “development,” “production” or “use” of equipment specified by 5A002 or 5B002 or “software” specified by 5D002.a or 5D002.c. Prior to the addition of a new “technology” control paragraph to address the issue of “cryptographic activation,” ECCN 5E002 did not have any specified control paragraphs. The 5E002 Heading text in place prior to this rule is now the text of the new paragraph 5E002.a.

Adding a control paragraph 5E002.b to control “technology” to enable an item to achieve or exceed the controlled performance levels for functionality specified by 5A002.a that would not otherwise be enabled. This addition is made to address the issue of mechanisms that are used to upgrade the cryptographic functionality of equipment or “software” to performance levels specified by 5A002.a, when the equipment or “software” would not be controlled under 5A002.a or 5D002 (i.e., would not perform controlled cryptographic functions) without these upgrades.

Category 6—Sensors and Lasers

ECCN 6A001 is amended by:

Removing 6A001.c from License Exceptions LVS, GBS and CIV eligibility in the License Exceptions section, because this paragraph is moved to ECCN 8A002.r.

Adding a new control for acoustic seabed survey equipment in 6A001.a.1.a because of the usefulness of this equipment in military reconnaissance, including subparagraphs 6A001.a.1.a.1 (surface vessel survey equipment), a.1.a.2 (underwater survey equipment designed for seabed topographic mapping), and a.1.a.3 (Side Scan Sonar (SSS) or Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS), designed for seabed imaging).

Removing the parenthetical phrase in 6A001.a.2 that read “receiving, whether or not related in normal application to separate active equipment” because it is guidance about the control that belongs in a Note. A new Note is added to 6A001.a.2 to provide this guidance about the control.

Moving ECCN 6A001.c (diver deterrent acoustic systems) to ECCN 8A002.r, because the specified diver deterrent systems have no capability to detect divers and are only used to deter divers. This rule designates 6A001.c as reserved.

New Nota Bene(N.B.) is added to reference 8A002.r for controls on diver deterrent acoustic systems.

ECCN 6A002 is amended by adding a Note to 6A002.d.3 to exclude encapsulated optical sensing fibers specially designed for bore hole sensing applications, because these fibers have limited use outside of the intended application.

ECCN 6A003 is amended by correcting the abbreviation for Instantaneous Field of View (IFOV) in two places where it is listed as FOV in the technical note following paragraph (b)(4)(b) of Note 3 to 6A003.b.4.b.

ECCN 6A005 is revised by:

Adding a new Note to 6A005.c.1 to exclude dye lasers or other liquid lasers with specified parameters to correct the roll-back on controls resulting from the WA 2005 agreements.

Replacing a period with a semicolon in 6A005.f.4, because a new paragraph follows.

Adding a new paragraph 6A005.g to control laser acoustic detection equipment, and includes a technical note that reads “laser acoustic detection equipment is sometimes referred to as a laser microphone or particle flow detection microphone.” This equipment can be used as a surreptitious listening device over very long distances.

ECCN 6A006 is amended by:

Adding 6A006.e to the list of items excluded from License Exception LVS eligibility, because it has been added to the Wassenaar Arrangement's Sensitive List.

Removing “and” from 6A006.c.3 and replacing a period with a semicolon in 6A006.d, because this rule adds a new paragraph.

Adding a new paragraph 6A006.e to control specified Underwater ElectroMagnetic Receivers (UEMR). The UEMR can be used in civil applications, such as oil and gas exploration, as well as for military purposes such as mine/vessel detection and alerting.

ECCN 6A008 is amended by:

Removing 6A008.l.3 from the License Exception LVS eligibility paragraph, because this rule removes and reserves this paragraph.

Adding an “or” to the end of 6A008.l.1 to harmonize it with changes in this ECCN;

Removing and reserving 6A008.l.2 and l.3, because these parameters for radar data processing sub-systems are no longer key or major criteria to determining whether these commodities are usable for military applications;

Revising 6A008.l.4 by adding the phrase “Configured to provide” at the beginning, replacing the phrase “in real time” with “within six seconds,” and adding the phrase “specified by 6A008.f, or 6A008.i.” to clarify the control parameter; and

Adding a Nota Bene to reference a related control in the U.S. Munitions List (22 CFR part 121).

ECCN 6D001 is amended by adding 6A004.c and d, and 6A008.d, h, and k to paragraph 3 of the License Exception TSR paragraph, because these ECCN subparagraphs are listed on the Wassenaar Arrangement's Sensitive List.

ECCN 6D003 is amended by:

Adding two new paragraphs 6D003.f.3 and f.4 to control “software” and “source code,” specially designed for “real time processing” of electromagnetic data using underwater electromagnetic receivers specified by 6A006.e, because this source code and software isessential for the use of Underwater ElectroMagnetic Receivers (UEMR).

Adding the phrase “designed to be” between “programs” and “hosted” in paragraph 6D003.h.1 to clarify that software to be exported is controlled not only when it has been loaded onto a general purpose computer, but also prior to loading onto such a computer.

ECCN 6E001 is amended by:

Revising the Heading by removing the reference to 6A018 (because ECCN 6A018 was removed from the CCL on July 30, 2004 (69 FR 46086)) and adding a missing closing parenthetical to the end of the Heading; and

Revising paragraph 4 of License Exception TSR by replacing 6A001.a.1.b.1 with 6A001.a.1.b, and adding 6A001.a.1.e, a.2.d; 6A002.a.1.a, a.1.b, a.2.a, a.2.b, a.3, b, and c; 6A003.b.3, b.4; 6A004.c and d; 6A005.a.1; 6A006.a.2, c.1, d, e, g, and h; 6A008.d, h, and k. These revisions are made to conform to the Wassenaar Arrangement's Sensitive List.

ECCN 6E002 is amended by:

Revising the Heading by removing the reference to 6A018 (because ECCN 6A018 was removed from the CCL on July 30, 2004 (69 FR 46086)).

Revising paragraph 3 of License Exception TSR by replacing the word “development” with “production” to correct this paragraph, replace 6A001.a.1.b.1 with 6A001.a.1.b, moving 6A001.a.2.c to paragraph (b) of this paragraph, adding 6A002.a.3, 6A002.b, 6A002.c, 6A003.b.3, 6A003.b.4, 6A004.c, 6A004.d, 6A005.a.1, 6A006.a.2, 6A006.c.1, 6A006.d, 6A006.e, 6A006.g, 6A006.h, 6A008.d, 6A008.h, 6A008.k, 6A008.l.3, 6B008, replacing 6A001.a.2.e with 6A001.a.2.c in paragraph (b) of this paragraph, and removing paragraph (c) of this paragraph 3. These revisions are made to conform to the Wassenaar Arrangement's Sensitive List.

ECCN 6E003 is amended by adding the phrase “an `optical thickness'” between “achieve” and “uniformity” in paragraph 6E003.d.1 to add clarity to the parameter, as well as adding a technical note to this paragraph to define `optical thickness.'

Category 7—Navigation and Avionics

ECCN 7A001 is amended by:

Adding the phrase “but less than or equal to 100 g” after “15g” in 7A001.a.2 for linear accelerometers, to prevent an overlap of control between 7A001 and 7A002.

Adding a note for 7A001.a.1 and a.2 to exclude accelerometers limited to measuring only vibration or shock.

ECCN 7A002 is amended by:

Adding new parameters to control gyros or angular rate sensors in 7A002.a and .b to address an overlap of controls between 7A001 and 7A002.

Adding a new Note for 7A002.a.2.b to exclude `spinning mass gyros' from 7A002 controls.

ECCN 7A003 is amended by removing the phrase “and specially designed components therefor” from 7A003.d, because this phrase is redundant. The specially designed components of concern are the accelerometers and gyros that are already controlled in the text of 7A003.d.

ECCN 7E004 is amended by:

Removing the phrase “Raster-type head-up displays or” from 7E004.a.3, because cathode ray tube and related raster scanning technology is outdated and no longer represents the standard for display technology.

Removing and reserving specified inertial navigation systems or gyro-astro compasses in 7E004.a.4, because this technology is covered by ECCNs 7E001 and 7E002.

Category 8—Marine

ECCN 8A001 is amended by:

Removing the word “Fiber” from paragraph 8A001.d.3 and replacing “optic” with “optical,” because this paragraph addresses parameters for untethered submersible vehicles, which, by definition, are not tethered by fiber.

ECCN 8A002 is amended by:

Adding paragraph 8A002.r to License Exceptions GBS and CIV, because this paragraph was moved from 6A001.c, which was eligible for these license exceptions.

Cascading the parameters in paragraph 8A002.i.l to make clear that remotely controlled articulated manipulators specially designed for use with submersibles vehicles are controlled when the system that controls the manipulators uses either measured or detected information from tactile sensors.

Adding single quotes around the term `active noise reduction or cancellation systems' in paragraph 8A002.o.3.b and moving some of the text of 8A002.o.3.b into a new technical note that defines `active noise reduction or cancellation systems' to move definitional text out of the parameter paragraph.

Cascading the text in 8A002.p to make it clear that both the “power output” and “using divergent nozzle and flow conditioning vane techniques” parameters apply to pumpjet propulsion systems.

Cascading the parameters in 8A002.q to make it clear that closed circuit rebreathers and semi-closed circuit rebreathers are types of underwater swimming and diving equipment that are controlled by this paragraph.

Replacing the word “apparatus” with “rebreathers,” in 8A002.q.1 and q.2, and replacing the phrase “its user” with “their users” to clarify the Note to 8A002.q.

Adding a new paragraph 8A002.r, which has been moved from 6A001.c, because the specified diver deterrent systems have no capability to detect divers and are only used to deter divers. This rule also adds related notes describing the scope of 8A002.r to help readers understand the scope of the control better.

Category 9—Aerospace and Propulsion

ECCN 9A001 is amended by adding a reference to 9E003.i in 9A001.a as a new parameter for control of aero gas turbine engines.

ECCN 9A003 is amended by replacing the phrase “having any of the following” with “any of the following” in the Header because the Items paragraphs do not list characteristics of engine propulsion systems. In addition, this rule adds 9E003.i (“technology” for adjustable flow path systems designed to maintain engine stability for gas generator turbines, fan or power turbines, or propelling nozzles) to the heading of 9A003.

ECCN 9A991 is amended by adding double quotes around the term “civil aircraft” in paragraph 9A991.b in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled, because this is a defined term in Part 772.

ECCN 9B001 is amended by adding double quotes around the term “tip shroud”, because this rule adds a definition to Part 772 of the EAR.

ECCN 9B002 is amended by moving and cascading the text that appeared in the Heading to the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section to improve clarity of the control. In addition, this rule replaces the reference to “9E003.a. or 9E003.h” with “9E003.h and 9E003.i” in the new paragraph 9B002.b, to harmonize it with the movement of “technology” for adjustable flow path systems designed to maintain engine stability for gas generator turbines, fan or power turbines, or propelling nozzles from 9E003.a.10 to 9E003.i.

ECCN 9B008 is amended by revising the Heading for clarity of the control scope of the entry.

ECCN 9D003 is amended by:

Replacing the phrase “specially designed or modified for the “use” of “Full Authority Digital Electronic Engine Controls Systems”” with “incorporating “technology” specified by9E003.h and used in” to use less words to refer to the same parameters.

Removing the phrase “as follows (see List of Items Controlled)” to harmonize with the revisions described in this entry.

Removing paragraphs 9D003.a and .b, and adding in their place the sentence, “The list of items controlled is contained in the ECCN heading.”

ECCN 9D004 is amended by adding double quotes around the newly defined term “tip shrouds” in paragraph 9D004.f.

ECCN 9E001 is corrected by adding back the MT and AT paragraphs of the License Requirement section that was inadvertently removed on January 2, 2008 (73 FR 32, 38).

ECCN 9E003 is amended by:

Revising the SI control paragraph in the License Requirements section to add paragraph .j, which was previously listed as .i but is redesignated as .j by this rule to the existing list. The SI control paragraph now includes a.8, .h, .i, and .j.

Adding double quotes around the newly defined term “tip shrouds” in paragraph 9E003.a.1, a.4, and a.5.

Replacing the word “rotating” with “rotor” in 9E003.a.8, because this is a more precise description of the component to be controlled.

Adding a Technical Note to define “damage tolerant” after 9E003.a.8 to add clarity to the control and adding single quotes around `damage tolerant' to identify that this term is defined in 9E003. Adding “or” to the end of the text for a.8, because a.8 is the last paragraph of substance before a.11, which is the last paragraph of 9E003.a.

Removing and reserving paragraph .a.10 and the related notes and adding a new Note Bene stating “For adjustable flow path geometry, see 9E003.i.” Redesignating paragraph .i as paragraph .j in the Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section, in order to move technology for “adjustable flow path geometry and associated control systems” from 9E003.a.10 to the new 9E003.i. This paragraph was moved to move it out from under the stipulation in 9E003.a that this particular technology must be “required” for the “development” or “production” of any of the following gas turbine engine components or systems. Instead the new more precise control is for specifically listed “technology” for adjustable flow path systems designed to maintain engine stability for gas generator turbines, fan or power turbines, or propelling nozzles.

§ 734.4De minimis U.S. Content

Section 734.4 is amended by removing the phrase “9E003.a.1 through a.8, a.10, h and i.” and adding in its place “9E003.a.1 through a.8, .h,.i and .j.” 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.i and .jin this rule.

Section 734.4 is amended by removing the phrase “5A002.a.1, .a.2, .a.5, or .a.6, .a.9, or 5D002,” and adding in its place “5A002.a.1, .a.2, .a.5, .a.6, .a.9, .b, or 5D002,” in the introductory text of paragraph (b)(1), because 5A002.b is a newly added EI controlled paragraph.

License Exception GOV 740.11—Supplement No. 1 to section 740.11

As a matter of policy BIS does not allow the use of License Exception GOV for the export of items listed on the WA Very Sensitive List. As a result of WA agreements adding ECCN 5A001.h (and corresponding technology and software) to its Very Sensitive List, this rule makes corresponding changes to Supplement No. 1 to section 740.11.

§ 740.17License Exception ENC

Section 740.17 is amended by removing the phrase “5A002.a.1, .a.2, .a.5, .a.6, or .a.9” and adding in its place “5A002.a.1, .a.2, .a.5, .a.6, .a.9, or .b” in the introductory paragraph and paragraphs (a)(1)(i), (a)(2), and (b)(1). This is a consequential change because of the newly added paragraph 5A002.b, which is EI controlled. (The newly added paragraph 5D002.d, which is EI controlled, is already covered by the existing reference to ECCN 5D002 in these section 740.17 paragraphs. So, while 5D002.d is a new CCL entry, its addition does not require any conforming edits in these particular paragraphs.)

§ 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, .h, .i, and .j.

§ 742.15Encryption Items

Section 742.15 is amended by removing the phrase “5A002.a.1, a.2, a.5, a.6 and a.9; 5D002.a or c.1 for equipment controlled for EI reasons in ECCN 5A002;” and adding in its place “5A002.a.1, .a.2, .a.5, .a.6, .a.9, and .b; 5D002.a, .c.1 or .d for equipment and “software” controlled for EI reasons in ECCNs 5A002 or 5D002;” in paragraph (a)(1). This is a consequential change because of the newly added paragraphs 5A002.b and 5D002.d, which are EI controlled. This change also clarifies that “EI” controls apply to “software” items as specified by the designated ECCN 5D002 paragraphs, regardless of whether the “software” is bundled, commingled or otherwise used with ECCN 5A002 equipment.

§ 743.1Wassenaar Arrangement

WA has three levels of control of goods: Basic List (BL), Sensitive List (SL), and Very Sensitive List (VSL). As a matter of policy, BIS makes certain items on the WA BL and SL eligible for license exceptions. 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. To collect data on exports made under license exceptions, BIS requires WA reporting on SL items exported (excluding deemed exports) under License Exceptions GBS, CIV, TSR, LVS, APP and portions of GOV. As a result of WA making changes to its SL, this rule makes corresponding changes to the reporting requirements of section 743.1 of the EAR.

This rule revises the Note to paragraph (c)(1)(ii) of Section 743.1 by adding WA reporting requirements for 2D001 software other than that controlled by 2D002, specially designed for the development or production of deep-hole-drilling machines controlled by 2B001.f, or “numerically controlled” or manual machine tools controlled by 2B003. In addition, this rule revises the Note to paragraph (c)(1)(ii) of Section 743.1 by adding WA reporting requirements for 2E001 and 2E002 technology consistent with the General Technology Note for development and production of deep-hole-drilling machines controlled by 2B001.f, or “numerically controlled” or manual machine tools controlled by 2B003. This rule also changes the formatting of the information in this Note by putting it in outline format for easier readability.

This rule also revises reporting requirements in Section 743.1(c)(1)(v) to add 5A001.h in three places and to add 5A001.b.5 in two places for consistency.

This rule also revises reporting requirements in Section 743.1(c)(1)(vi) to remove 6A002.a.1.a, a.1.b, a.2.a, a.3, c, and e; 6A003.b.3 and b.4, ; and 6A006.a.1, a.2, and d, because the subparagraphs of these ECCNs are not eligible for list based license exceptions and are therefore not subject to WA reporting requirements under the EAR. In addition, this rule removes 6D001,6D003.a, 6E001 and 6E002, because the only list based license exception this software and technology are eligible for is License Exception TSR, and only within countries that are WA member countries.

This rule also revises reporting requirements in Section 743.1(c)(1)(viii) to add the phrase “as well as 8A001.b, c, and d” to ECCNs 8D001 and 8E001, to indicate that the reporting requirements of 743.1(c)(1) apply to exports of 8D001 software for the development, production or use of commodities controlled by 8A001.b, c, and d and 8E001 technology for the development or production of commodities controlled by 8A001.b, c, and d.

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

As a result of the decisions reached at the 2010 WA Plenary, this rule amends section 772.1 to add categories 4 and 9 as references in the definition of “civil aircraft” to identify other categories that use this definition. This rule also adds definitions for “cryptographic activation,” “radiant sensitivity,” and “tip shroud,” and amends the existing definition for “information security” to include “cryptographic activation.” This rule also amends the definition of “frequency switching time” to add a more practical and meaningful definition for the term. The change from an absolute frequency to a percentage of the final maximum specified frequency will make actual frequency measurements possible and reasonable, thus removing ambiguity of interpretation. Additionally, this rule corrects the structure of the definition of “frequency switching time” by replacing an absolute value with a relative value. Also, the phrase “or signal generator” is removed from the definition of “frequency synthesizer,” because a signal generator is a subset of a frequency source. Finally, the definition of “object code” is amended by replacing the term “converted” with “compiled” to use a more precise and commonly used word to describe what it is that is done to source code in order to obtain object code.

Supplement No. 3 to Part 774

This rule adds a Statement of Understanding related to Used Goods at the end of Supplement No. 3 to Part 774, which states, “The specifications in the Commerce Control List apply equally to new or used goods. In the case of used goods, an evaluation by the Bureau of Industry and Security may be carried out in order to assess whether the goods are capable of meeting the relevant specifications.” This statement was added because the regulated public often asks the question as to whether the controls apply to used or older equipment. The statement clearly states that the controls apply to new and used equipment equally, but that if you believe the equipment cannot perform to the stated control parameters because of its current age and condition that you may submit a classification request to BIS and BIS will evaluate the current state of the equipment against the control parameters and make a classification determination.

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. 1701et seq.).

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 May 20, 2011, 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 July 19, 2011. Any such items not actually exported before midnight, on July 19, 2011, require a license in accordance with this regulation.

Rulemaking Requirements

1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has been designated a “significant regulatory action” although not economically significant, under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the rule has been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget.

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 JasmeetSeehra, 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 this regulation 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 preventingdestabilizing 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 2010 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 2099, Washington, DC 20230.

a.5.a.5. A resolution of more than 14 bit with an output rate greater than 20 million words per second;

Technical notes:

1. A resolution of n bit corresponds to a quantization of 2 [n] levels.

2. The number of bits in the output word is equal to the resolution of the ADC.

3. The output rate is the maximum output rate of the converter, regardless of architecture or oversampling.

4. For the `multiple channel ADCs', the outputs are not aggregated and the output rate is the maximum output rate of any single channel.

5. For `interleaved ADCs' or for `multiple channel ADCs' that are specified to have an interleaved mode of operation, the outputs are aggregated and the output rate is the maximum combined total output rate of all of the outputs.

6. Vendors may also refer to the output rate as sampling rate, conversion rate or throughput rate. It is often specified in megahertz (MHz) or mega samples per second (MSPS).

7. For the purpose of measuring output rate, one output word per second is equivalent to one Hertz or one sample per second.

8. ‘Multiple channel ADCs' are defined as devices which integrate more than one ADC, designed so that each ADC has a separate analog input.

9. ‘Interleaved ADCs' are defined as devices which have multiple ADC converter units that sample the same analog input at different times such that when the outputs are aggregated, the analog input has been effectively sampled and converted at a higher sampling rate.

a.5.b. Digital-to-Analog Converters (DAC) having any of the following:

a.5.b.1. A resolution of 10 bit or more with an `adjusted update rate' of 3,500 MSPS or greater; or

a.5.b.2.b. A `Spurious Free Dynamic Range' (SFDR) greater than 68 dBc (carrier) when synthesizing a full scale analog signal of 100 MHz or the highest full scale analog signal frequency specified below 100 MHz.

Technical notes:

1. ‘Spurious Free Dynamic Range' (SFDR) is defined as the ratio of the RMS value of the carrier frequency (maximum signal component) at the input of the DAC to the RMS value of the next largest noise or harmonic distortion component at its output.

2. SFDR is determined directly from the specification table or from the characterization plots of SFDR versus frequency.

3. A signal is defined to be full scale when its amplitude is greater than -3 dBfs (full scale).

4. ‘Adjusted update rate' for DACs is:

a. For conventional (non-interpolating) DACs, the `adjusted update rate' is the rate at which the digital signal is converted to an analog signal and the output analog values are changed by the DAC.For DACs where the interpolation mode may be bypassed (interpolation factor of one), the DAC should be considered as a conventional (non-interpolating) DAC.

b. For interpolating DACs (oversampling DACs), the ‘adjusted update rate' is defined as the DAC update rate divided by the smallest interpolating factor. For interpolating DACs, the ‘adjusted update rate' may be referred to by different terms including:

• Input data rate

• Input word rate

• Input sample rate

• Maximum total input bus rate

• Maximum DAC clock rate for DAC clock input.
