Export and Reexport Controls to Rwanda and United Nations 
Sanctions Under the Export Administration Regulations

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: In this final rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) 
amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement United 
Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1823 (2008), which, among 
other things, terminated sanctions against Rwanda concerning ``arms and 
related materiel'' imposed in 1994 pursuant to UNSCR 918. This rule 
includes conforming changes in the EAR related to the termination of 
the United Nations embargo on ``arms and related materiel'' against 
Rwanda, including the removal of machetes from the Commerce Control 
List (CCL). Further, BIS amends Part 746 (Embargoes and Other Special 
Controls) of the EAR to require a license to export or reexport certain 
items to countries subject to United Nations Security Council arms 
embargoes. A presumptive denial policy will apply to applications to 
export or reexport items that are

[[Page 42974]]

controlled for UN reasons and that would contravene a United Nations 
Security Council arms embargo.

DATES: This rule is effective July 23, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The arms embargo against Rwanda was initially imposed through 
United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 918 on May 17, 1994, 
and was continued through subsequent resolutions, including UNSCR 1011 
on August 16, 1995. The embargo was implemented in the EAR on August 8, 
1994 (59 FR 40235), most recently in Sec.  746.8 of the EAR. The United 
Nations Security Council terminated the arms embargo against Rwanda on 
July 10, 2008, via UNSCR 1823. Accordingly, this rule removes the 
United Nations Embargo (UN) controls on Rwanda by removing Rwanda from 
Part 746. BIS also makes conforming changes related to the removal of 
UN controls on Rwanda in Sec.  732.3, Supplement No. 1 to Part 738 and 
Supplement No.1 to Part 774 of the EAR.
    One of the conforming changes is the removal of machetes from 
Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 0A988. Machetes were added 
to the CCL when BIS in 1994 (then called the Bureau of Export 
Administration) implemented the United Nations Security Council arms 
embargo against Rwanda by way of Executive Order 12918 (59 FR 40235 
(Aug. 8, 1994)). Because this rule removes the UN controls imposed 
against Rwanda and because machetes were added to the CCL to address 
concerns with their use in Rwanda in particular, BIS is removing 
machetes from the CCL.
    In this final rule, BIS also amends Sec.  746.1(b) to require a 
license for the export or reexport of items controlled for ``UN'' 
reasons to countries subject to United Nations Security Council arms 
embargoes. Paragraph (b)(2) lists all the countries subject to United 
Nations Security Council arms embargoes. Paragraph (b)(3) states that, 
to the extent consistent with United States national security and 
foreign policy interests, and pursuant to revised paragraph (b) of 
Sec.  746.1, BIS will not approve applications to export or reexport 
items with a UN reason for control to countries subject to United 
Nations Security Council arms embargoes if such authorizations would be 
contrary to the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions. 
Paragraph (b)(4) provides that the availability of license exceptions 
to countries listed in Sec.  746.1(b)(2) is restricted to License 
Exception GOV Sec.  740.11(b)(2)(i) and (ii).
    The rule also clarifies the UN embargo provisions for Iraq and 
North Korea under the EAR by including cross-references to Sec.  746.3 
(Iraq) and Sec.  746.4 (North Korea).

Export Administration Act

    Since August 21, 2001, the Export Administration Act of 1979, as 
amended, has been in lapse. However, the President has continued the 
EAR in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 
U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) 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, 2011 (76 
Fed. Reg. 50661 (Aug. 16, 2011)). BIS continues to carry out the 
provisions of the Act, as appropriate and to the extent permitted by 
law, pursuant to Executive Order 13222.
    This action is taken after consultation with the Secretary of 
State. BIS submitted a foreign policy report to the Congress indicating 
the imposition of new foreign policy controls on June 28, 2012.

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 determined to be not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person is 
required to respond to nor 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. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), 
unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This rule involves a 
collection of information subject to the PRA. This collection has been 
approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 
0694-0088, ``Multi-Purpose Application,'' which carries a burden hour 
estimate of 58 minutes to prepare and submit form BIS-748. Total burden 
hours associated with the PRA and OMB control number 0694-0088 are not 
expected to increase as a result of this rule.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined under Executive Order 13132.
    4. Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1), the provisions of the 
Administrative Procedure Act requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, 
the opportunity for public participation, and a delay in effective 
date, are inapplicable because this regulation involves a military or 
foreign affairs function of the United States. (See 5 U.S.C. 
553(a)(1)). This final rule implements U.S. multilateral commitments 
concerning United Nations Security Council arms embargoes. The 
sanctions against Rwanda were initially implemented in part to fulfill 
U.S. obligations to implement the United Nations Security Council's 
arms embargo against Rwanda. Consistent with the United Nations 
Security Council's actions lifting the arms embargo and U.S. 
obligations thereunder, BIS is removing the sanctions imposed against 
Rwanda under the EAR. In addition, in this rule, BIS amends the EAR to 
require a license to export or reexport certain items to countries 
subject to United Nations arms embargoes. To the extent consistent with 
United States national security and foreign policy interests, BIS will 
not approve such license applications if such authorizations would be 
contrary to relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions. In 
light of United States commitments, BIS implements this approach 
pursuant to the existing licensing provisions and policies set out in 
Part 742 of the EAR and pursuant to revised Sec.  746.1(b), which sets 
out countries subject to United Nations Security Council arms 
embargoes. No other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking 
and an opportunity for public comment be given for this rule. Because a 
notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment are 
not required to be given for this rule by 5 U.S.C. 553, or by any other 
law, the analytical requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 
U.S.C. 601 et seq., are not applicable. Therefore, this regulation is 
issued in final form and is made effective immediately upon 
publication.
