Export and Reexport License Requirements for Certain Microwave 
and Millimeter Wave Electronic Components: Correction

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule: Correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This correction adds a compliance date of February 9, 2012, to 
a final rule published on January 9, 2012 (77 FR 1017). That final rule 
imposed a license requirement on exports and reexports to all 
destinations other than Canada of two types of microwave and millimeter 
wave electronic components. The two components are packaged high 
electron mobility transistors and packaged microwave ``monolithic 
integrated circuits'' power amplifiers that meet certain criteria with 
respect to frequency range, size and output power. BIS is publishing 
this correction to make sure exporters and reexporters have sufficient 
time to comply with the rule.

DATES: Effective date: January 24, 2012.
    Compliance date: All exports and reexports on or after February 9, 
2012, for which the rule published at 77 FR 1017, January 9, 2012, 
creates a new license requirement must be in compliance with the terms 
of that rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 9, 2012, BIS published a final 
rule imposing a license requirement on exports and reexports to all 
destinations other than Canada of two types of microwave and millimeter 
wave electronic components (77 FR 1017, January 9, 2012, FR Doc. 2012-
135). The two components are packaged high electron mobility 
transistors (HEMT) and packaged microwave ``monolithic integrated 
circuits'' (MMIC) power amplifiers that meet certain criteria with 
respect to frequency range, size and output power. That rule was 
effective upon publication and did not provide for any delay in 
compliance. This correction adds a compliance date of February 9, 2012, 
to provide time for exporters and reexporters upon whom this rule 
imposes a new license requirement to apply for any necessary licenses. 
This correction makes no other changes to the rule.
