Wassenaar Arrangement 2012 Plenary Agreements Implementation: 
Commerce Control List, Definitions, and Reports

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains, as part 
of its Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Commerce Control 
List (CCL), which identifies certain of the items subject to Department 
of Commerce jurisdiction. 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 2012 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. This rule 
harmonizes the CCL with the changes made to the WA List at the Plenary 
by revising ECCNs controlled for national security reasons in each 
category of the CCL, except category 8, as well as amending the General 
Software Note, WA reporting requirements, and definitions section in 
the EAR. BIS is adding unilateral controls to the CCL for specific 
software and technology for aviation control systems, which the WA 
agreements removed from the WA List, i.e., EAR national security 
controls.

DATES: This rule is effective: June 20, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Wassenaar Arrangement (WA) on Export Controls for Conventional 
Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies is a group of 41 like-minded 
states committed to promoting responsibility and transparency in the 
global arms trade, and preventing destabilizing accumulations of arms. 
As a Participating State, the United States has committed to 
controlling for export all items on the WA control lists. The lists 
were first established in 1996 and have been revised annually 
thereafter. Proposals for changes to the WA control lists that achieve 
consensus are approved by Participating States at annual December 
Plenary meetings. Participating States are charged with implementing 
the agreed list changes as soon as possible after approval. 
Implementation of WA list changes ensures U.S. companies have a level 
playing field with their competitors in other WA member states.

Revisions to the Commerce Control List

    Out of the 37 Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 
included in this rule, the following 28 ECCNs on the Commerce Control 
List (CCL) are revised to implement the changes to the Wassenaar List 
of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies agreed to at the December 2012 WA 
Plenary meeting: ECCNs 1A004, 1C001, 2B001, 2B006, 2D001, 2D002, 3A001, 
3A002, 3B001, 3C002, 4D001, 5A001, 5B001, 5E001, 5A002, 5E002, 6A001, 
6A002, 6A005, 6C004, 6C005, 7A001, 7D003, 7E001, 7E004, 9A001, 9A018 
and 9E003; and the following two (2) ECCNs, 2D003 and 7D004, are added 
to the CCL to implement the changes to the Wassenaar List of Dual-Use 
Goods and Technologies agreed to at the December 2012 WA Plenary 
meeting.
    Corresponding changes related to the movement of 5A001.i to 
5A001.f.1 are made to ECCNs 5A980, 5D001, 5D980, 5E001and 5E980.
    This rule also makes additions to 0D521 and 0E521 for ``source 
code'' for the ``development'' of fly-by-wire control systems and 
``technology'' for fly-by-wire control systems, see 7D004 for 
explanation.

Category 1 Special Materials and Related Equipment, Chemicals, 
``Microorganisms,'' and ``Toxins''

1A004 (Protective and Detection Equipment and Components)

    In the introductory paragraph .a of the Items paragraph in the List 
of Items Controlled section, ``Gas masks'' is replaced by ``Full face 
masks'' and a Technical Note is added to explain that ``for the purpose 
of 1A004.a, full face masks are also known as gas masks.'' The masks 
controlled in 1A004.a protect against more than just gases and the term 
gas masks has been replaced by full face masks in manufacture data 
sheets. This change in terminology does not change the scope of the 
control.
    In the Note at the end of the Items paragraph in the List of Items 
Controlled section, paragraph .b is amended by replacing ``Equipment'' 
with ``Occupational health or safety equipment'' to clarify the scope 
of the exclusion Note.

1C001 (Materials Specially Designed for Use as Absorbers of 
Electromagnetic Waves, or Intrinsically Conductive Polymers)

    Paragraph 1C001.b (Piezoelectric polymers and copolymers) of the 
Items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section is amended by 
adding an exclusion Note for materials, specially designed or 
formulated for laser marking of polymers; or laser welding of polymers, 
because these materials are not used in military applications.
    Paragraph 1C001.c (Seals, gaskets, valve seats, bladders or 
diaphragms) of the Items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled 
section is amended by adding an exclusion Note for 1C001.c materials in 
liquid form, because the liquid form is not used in military 
applications but is used in commercial applications to make a 
transparent conductive layer. It is also used, for example, in the 
liquid crystal panel of televisions, personal computers, and other such 
commercial commodities.

Category 2--Materials Processing

2B001 (Machine Tools)

    The Header is amended to remove the phrase ``and specially designed 
components'' to harmonize with the changes to 2B001.f.
    The Unit paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section is 
amended by removing the phrase ``components in $ value'' to harmonize 
with the changes in 2B001.f. Amendments to the Items

[[Page 37373]]

paragraph of the List of Items controlled section in 2B001 are as 
follows.
    The exclusion Note 2 to 2B001 is amended by correcting the spelling 
of jewelry in paragraph .d and adding paragraph .e for dental 
prostheses.
    2B001.a (Machine tools for turning) is amended by revising the 
positioning accuracy in 2B001.a.1 from 4.5 [micro]m to 3.0 [micro]m and 
moving the phrase ``according to ISO 230/2 (2006)'' within that 
paragraph, and adding the phrase ``or national equivalents'' to 
harmonize with WA agreed text.
    2B001.b (Machine tools for milling) is amended by revising the 
positioning accuracy in 2B001.b.1.a from 4.5 [micro]m to 3.0 [micro]m 
and moving the phrase ``according to ISO 230/2 (2006)'' within that 
paragraph, and adding the phrase ``or national equivalents'' to 
harmonize with WA agreed text.
    2B001.b.2 (Five or more axes machine tools for milling) is amended 
by adding three paragraphs b.2.a, b.2.b and b.2.c with combinations of 
positioning accuracy and travel length parameters: equal to or less 
than 3.0 [micro]m/less than 1m, equal to or less than 4.5 [micro]m/
greater than 1m and less than 2 m, and equal to or less than 4.5 + 
7x(L-2) [micro]m (L is the travel length in meters)/equal to or greater 
than 2m, respectively. In addition, this rule moves the phrase 
``according to ISO 230/2 (2006)'' within b.2.b and b.2.c, and adds the 
phrase ``or national equivalents'' to harmonize with WA agreed text. A 
Note is added after b.2 to point people to 2B001.b.2.d for parallel 
mechanism machine tools.
    2B001.b.2.d is added to clarify that 2B001 controls five or more 
axes machine tools for milling that are also `parallel mechanism 
machine tools.' A Technical Note accompanying this paragraph explains 
that a `parallel mechanism machine tool' is a machine tool having 
multiple rods, which are linked with a platform and actuators; each of 
the actuators operates the respective rod simultaneously and 
independently.
    2B001.b.3 is amended by moving the phrase ``according to ISO 230/
2(2006)'' in this paragraph and replacing ``along any linear axis'' 
with ``along one or more linear axis'' to clarify the control text. 
This rule also adds the phrase ``or national equivalents'' to harmonize 
with WA agreed text.
    2B001.b.4.b is amended by replacing the period with a semi-colon to 
correct the punctuation.
    2B001.f (Deep-hole-drilling machines and turning machines) is 
amended by removing the phrase ``and specially designed components 
therefor,'' because components for these machines are general and not 
specially designed.

2B006 (Dimensional Inspection or Measuring Systems, Equipment, and 
``Electronic Assemblies'')

    2B006.b.1 (`Linear displacement' measuring instruments) is amended 
by adding a Note to reference 2B006.b.1.c for controls on displacement 
measuring ``laser'' interferometers.
    2B006.c (Equipment for measuring surface roughness (including 
surface defects)) is amended by replacing ``irregularities'' with 
``roughness (including surface defects)'' and removing the phrase ``as 
a function of angle.'' This change will clarify the scope of controls 
to integrate some of the expanded abilities of measuring equipment.

2D001 (``Software'' for ``Development'' and ``Production'' for Listed 
Category 2 Equipment)

    The Header is simplified, because a more detailed description of 
controlled software is now in the Items paragraph of the List of Items 
Controlled section.
    The Items paragraph is amended by adding two paragraphs that split 
the controls that were previously in the Header, which separates 
``use'' from ``development'' or ``production'' software in order to 
move 2B002 ``use'' software from 2D001 to the new 2D003. Paragraph .a 
controls ``development'' or ``production'' of equipment controlled by 
2A001 or 2B001 to 2B009. Paragraph .b narrows the scope for ``use'' to 
equipment specified by 2A001.c, 2B001, or 2B003 to 2B009, which 
excludes most of 2A001 and all of 2B002 (Numerically controlled optical 
finishing machine tools equipped for selective material removal * * 
*.).
    A Note is added to exclude ``part programming ``software'' that 
generates ``numerical control'' codes for machining various parts'' 
from 2D001 controls, because this software cannot directly operate the 
Computer Numeric Controller (CNC) equipment.

2D002 (``Software'' for Electronic Devices, Even When Residing in an 
Electronic Device or System, Enabling Such Devices or Systems To 
Function as a ``Numerical Control'' Unit, Capable of Coordinating 
Simultaneously More Than 4 Axes for ``Contouring Control'')

    Note 1 is amended by replacing the word ``controlled'' with 
``specified'' to harmonize with the WA list and clarify the meaning of 
the Note.
    Note 2 is amended by replacing the word ``controlled'' with 
``specified'' in two places to harmonize with the WA list and clarify 
the meaning of the Note. Also, a reference to 2D003 is added.
    Note 3 is added to exclude ``software'' for the minimum necessary 
operation of machine tools not specified by Category 2 when such 
``software'' is exported with the machine tools.

2D003 (``Software'', Designed or Modified for the Operation Of 
Equipment Specified by 2B002, That Converts Optical Design, Workpiece 
Measurements and Material Removal Functions Into ``Numerical Control'' 
Commands To Achieve the Desired Workpiece Form)

    ECCN 2D003 is added to control the ``use'' software for 2B002 
optical finishing machines, which is critical to the function of 2B002 
machines. This ECCN is controlled for national security (NS2) and for 
anti-terrorism (AT1--Cuba, Iran, N. Korea, Syria and Sudan) reasons; 
see Supplement No. 1 to part 738 of the EAR. License Exception TSR is 
available to countries in Country Group B (see Supp. No. 1 to Part 
740), see Sec.  740.6 of the EAR.

Category 3--Electronics

3A001 (Electronic Components and Specially Designed Components 
Therefor) and 3A002 (General Purpose Electronic Equipment and 
Accessories Therefor)

    3A001.a.7 (Field programmable logic devices) is amended by this 
rule. Paragraph a.7.a is revised by replacing ``digital input/outputs'' 
with ``single-ended digital input/outputs,'' which narrows the scope of 
control. The level of control is amended by revising the maximum number 
of single-ended digital input/outputs from ``greater than 200'' to 
``500 or greater'' to reflect the advances made in recent years to 
Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) devices and to remove controls on 
older devices.
    Paragraph a.7.b parameter ``system gate count'' is changed to ``an 
`aggregate one-way peak serial transceiver data rate' or 200 Gb/s or 
greater'' to remove the arbitrary and problematic metric of system 
gates as a control parameter and replace it with a more modern and 
meaningful metric for FPGAs with embedded transceiver circuitry.
    A Technical Note is added to define `Aggregate one-way peak serial 
transceiver data rate,' which is the product of the peak serial one-way 
transceiver data rate times the number of transceivers on the FPGA.
    3A001.b.2 (Microwave ``Monolithic Integrated Circuits'' (MMIC) 
power amplifiers) is amended by adding -70 dBm as an equivalent output 
power parameter to 0.1 nW in paragraph b.2.d, for consistency.
    The frequency of 37.5 is changed to 37 GHz in paragraphs b.2.d and 
b.2.e.

[[Page 37374]]

For many years, controls on microwave components have used 37.5 GHz as 
the frequency breakpoint between military and civilian applications. In 
fact, the proper breakpoint is 37 GHz, as per the ETSI EN 300 197 
standard.
    Paragraph b.2.e is amended by removing the fractional bandwidth 
parameter, because a fractional bandwidth as large as 10%, within a 
band that is only 16% wide, is illogical. To compensate, this rule 
increases the output power parameter from 0.25 W (24 dBm) to 1.0 W (30 
dBm) to align with state-of-the-art output power in this frequency 
range.
    Paragraph b.2.f is amended by adding a ceiling to the operation 
frequency of 75 GHz, which is the top of the V band to align with 
waveguide bands. The average output power parameter is raised from 0.1 
nW to 31.62 mW (15 dBm) with a ``fractional bandwidth'' greater than 
10%, which aligns with the 15 dBm output power control threshold for 
network analyzers in 3A002.e.1.
    Two new parameter paragraphs are added for MMIC power amplifiers 
controlled under b.2.g and b.2.h to add two new frequency ranges to 
align with the 90 GHz top of the E band-WR-12 waveguide upper limit. 
Paragraph b.2.g controls MMIC power amplifiers rated for operation at 
frequencies exceeding 75 GHz up to and including 90 GHz with an average 
output power greater than 10 mW (10 dBm) with a ``fractional 
bandwidth'' greater than 5%. Paragraph b.2.h controls MMIC power 
amplifiers rated for operation at frequencies exceeding 90 GHz and with 
an average output power greater than 0.1 nW (-70 dBm).
    3A001.b.4 (Microwave solid state amplifiers and microwave 
assemblies/modules containing microwave solid state amplifiers) is 
amended by adding ``either'' to paragraph b.4.f.3 to eliminate an 
ambiguity in the current text. The Technical Note below this paragraph 
is corrected to harmonize with the WA list. Note 3 is added to clarify 
that 3A001.b.4 includes transmit/receive modules and transmit modules.
    3A001.b.10 (Oscillators or oscillator assemblies) and 3A002.d.4 
(signal generators) are amended by replacing the word ``for'' with 
``anywhere within the range of'' in b.10.a, b.10.b, 3A002.d.4.a and 
d.4.b to clarify that oscillators or oscillator assemblies and signal 
generators, respectively, are controlled if it meets the parameters at 
any point within the selected ranges.
    3A001.b.11 (``Frequency synthesizer'' ``electronic assemblies'') is 
amended by revising the ``frequency switching time'' in paragraph 
b.11.a from 312 ps to 156 ps. The frequency switching time threshold of 
3A001.b.11.a is the inverse of the lower frequency control threshold 
(current, 312 ps = 1/3.2 GHz). The new threshold is 156 ps = 1/6.4 GHz. 
This would retain control on Digital to Analog Converter (DAC)-based 
synthesizer assemblies having sample rate exceeding 16 GSa/s (frequency 
is calculated by dividing sample rate by 2.5).
    Paragraphs 3A001.b.11.b and 3A002.d.3.b are amended by revising the 
low-frequency threshold from 3.2 GHz to 4.8 GHz to accommodate the 
802.11ac (Very High Throughput--VHT) amendment. The 802.11ac standard 
uses wider bandwidths for higher throughputs and data rates to address 
several uses, including wireless displays for in-home distribution of 
High Definition Television (HDTV).
    Paragraphs 3A001.b.11.f, b.11.g, 3A002.c.2, c.3, d.1, d.2, d.3.f, 
d.4.a, d.4.b, d.5, e.1, and e.2, are amended by raising the high-
frequency limit from 70 GHz to 75 GHz, which corresponds to the top of 
the V-band (waveguide). Aligning the specified frequency to standard 
waveguide frequency breakpoints makes this parameter more relevant to 
national security concerns.
    3A002.c.4 is amended by revising the Heading from ``Dynamic signal 
analyzers'' to ``Signal analyzers'' and cascading the control 
parameters to clarify the controls.
    Paragraph c.4.a is amended by removing ``a'' and revising the 
``real-time bandwidth'' from ``40 MHz'' to ``85 MHz'' to update the 
control level. The definition for ``real-time bandwidth'' is also 
updated in Part 772 of the EAR to better define the concept of gap-free 
analysis of the input data, and to assure that the scope of control 
remains specific and focused, which is also the reason for adding 
paragraph c.4.b that adds a gap and windowing effect aspect to the 
control.
    The Note to 3A002.c.4 is amended by changing ``dynamic signal 
analyzers'' to ``signal analyzers'' for clarity.
    Technical Notes are added for 3A002.c.4.b to explain probability of 
discovery, also known as probability of intercept or probability of 
capture.
    3A002.c.5 is added to add a new control parameter for ``frequency 
mask trigger,'' which provides the capability to capture sporadic 
transient RF signals within other closely spaced RF signals. A 
definition for ``frequency mask trigger'' is added to Part 772 in 
relation to this new paragraph.
    3A002.d.3.a (``frequency switching time'' less than 312 ps) is 
removed as a parameter for frequency synthesized signal generators, 
because extension of the 802.11 standard for consumer wireless products 
in the frequency range 5-6 GHz has rendered the existing control 
threshold obsolete.
    3A002.e (Network analyzers) is amended by adding ``An'' to the 
beginning of paragraph e.1 for consistency and correct grammar. This 
rule also removes the ``or'' at the end of the paragraph, because two 
additional paragraphs are added to cover frequency ranges up to 110 
GHz. This change makes it clear that 110 GHz is the normal max 
frequency for 1.00 mm coaxial microwave connectors. A Technical Note is 
also added to define `Nonlinear vector measurement functionality,' 
which is a term used in paragraph e.3. Paragraph e.4 (former paragraph 
e.2) is amended by revising the maximum operating frequency from 70 GHz 
to 110 GHz.
    3A002.f (Microwave test receivers) is amended by revising the 
maximum frequency control threshold of 3A002.f .1 from 70 GHz to 110 
GHz, to align with 3A002.e, because of the similarity between 3A002.e 
network analyzers and 3A002.f microwave test receivers.

3B001 (Equipment for the Manufacturing of Semiconductor Devices or 
Materials)

    3B001.a.2 (Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) 
reactors) is amended by simplifying the control text to clarify that 
MOCVD systems used to produce nitride based devices are within the 
scope of control.
    3B001.b (Equipment designed for ion implantation) is amended by 
removing and reserving paragraph b.1 (beam energy (accelerating votage) 
exceeding 1 MeV), which controlled ion implant systems used for the 
manufacture of memory integrated circuits (Example: FLASH NAND). This 
technology is ubiquitous and equivalent tools are readily obtained 
globally.
    Paragraph b.2 is amended by raising the beam energy parameter and 
specification of the implant materials, which assures only equipment 
used in the production of radiation hardened ICs is captured.
    Paragraphs b.3 and b.4 are amended by moving the ``or'' from the 
end of b.3 to the end of b.4, because a new paragraph b.5 is added.
    Paragraph b.5 is added to control equipment using channeled silicon 
ion beams in heated equipment.
    3A001.h (Multi-layer masks with phase shift layer not specified by 
3B001.g) is amended by adding two new parameters. Paragraph h.1 
specifies glass birefringence of the mask (less than 7 nm/cm), which 
delineates phase shift masks that are used for defining geometries 
consistent with the

[[Page 37375]]

lithography control. Paragraph h.2 specifies the light source 
wavelength of the lithography equipment (less than 245 nm), to control 
only phase shift masks that are consistent with the lithography control 
of 245nm wavelength source. This revision will control phase shift 
masks that are used for emerging Extreme Ultra-Violet (EUV) 
lithography. The addition of the phrase ``not specified by 3B001.g'' to 
the introductory text in 3A001.h resolves the possible ``double 
coverage'' between 3B001.g and 3B001.h.

3C002 (Resist Materials and ``Substrates'' Coated With Specified 
Resists)

    License Exceptions GBS and CIV paragraphs are revised to read, 
``Yes for 3C002.a provided they are not also controlled by 3C002.b 
through .e'', to be more accurate and concise.
    Paragraph 3C002.a (Resists designed for semiconductor lithography) 
is amended by cascading the parameter paragraphs and adding a new 
paragraph a.2. Paragraph a.1 now controls positive resists adjusted 
(optimized) for use at wavelengths equal to or greater than 15 nm, but 
less than 245 nm. Paragraph a.2 controls resists adjusted (optimized) 
for use at wavelengths greater than 1 nm, but less than 15 nm. These 
revisions are made to be more specific about the controls.
    Paragraph 3C002.c (All resists designed for use with X-rays, with a 
sensitivity of 2.5 J/mm\2\ or better) is removed and reserved, because 
these resists are not used for the fabrication of semiconductor 
devices.
    Paragraph 3C002.d (All resists optimized for surface imaging 
technologies) is amended by removing the reference to silylated 
resists, as well as the definition for silylation techniques in the 
Related Definition paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section, 
because it was determined that it is not necessary to specifically call 
out silylated resists.

Category 4--Computers

4D001 ``Software''

    4D001.a is amended by deleting the term ``use,'' because no ``use'' 
software of concern could be identified for this entry, and by removing 
4A002 from the scope of control, because it was removed in 2004.

Category 5 Part 1--``Telecommunications''

5A001 (Telecommunications Systems, Equipment, Components and 
Accessories)

    The License Requirement section is amended by removing 5A001.i from 
NS2 and SL controls, because items previously controlled under 
paragraph .i are moved to paragraph .f.1 Paragraph .f.1 is already 
controlled under NS2. Paragraph f.1 is added to the SL control 
paragraph.
    The License Requirement Notes paragraph is amended by replacing the 
reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1.
    License Exception LVS eligibility paragraph is amended by revising 
reference to paragraph .f to read f.2, f.3, f.4 in order to narrow the 
scope, because the interception equipment in 5A001.f.1 is too sensitive 
to receive License Exception LVS eligibility.
    5A001.f (Mobile telecommunications jamming equipment) is amended by 
adding ``interception or'' in order to expand the scope of control to 
all mobile telecommunications jamming and interception equipment that 
is of national security concern, as well as equipment that monitors the 
network to detect jamming and interception that is of national security 
concern. 5A001.i was combined with the former 5A001.f as a 
clarification because interception and jamming are often interrelated 
functions. 5A001.f.1 (Interception equipment designed for the 
extraction of voice or data, transmitted over the air interface) is 
moved from 5A001.i and license requirements are not changed.
    5A001.f.2 (interception equipment not specified in 5A001.f.1) is 
designed to control equipment that captures and processes the air 
interface (e.g., the air link between a handset and a base station, 
over which voice/data and metadata are transmitted) in order to extract 
client device or subscriber indicators (such as IMSI, TIMSI, IMEI), 
signalling or other metadata contained therein, but not without also 
processing the voice or data channels contained therein. Licenses are 
required for countries listed in NS2 and AT1 of the Commerce Country 
Chart in Supplement No. 1 to part 738 of the EAR.
    5A001.f.3 (Jamming equipment) was the former 5A001.f and license 
requirements are not changed.
    5A001.f.4 (Radio Frequency (RF) monitoring equipment designed or 
modified to identify the operation of items specified in 5A001.f.1, 
f.2, or f.3) is added to control passive counter surveillance tools. 
Licenses are required for countries listed in NS2 and AT1 of the 
Commerce Country Chart in Supplement No. 1 to part 738 of the EAR.
    Regarding certain types of equipment that are not controlled by 
5A001.f, the term `interception equipment' excludes equipment used to 
operate or test the network (e.g., devices which measure signal 
strength, and do not require the signal's contents to be decoded, 
demodulated, or recorded, are not considered `interception equipment'), 
and also readily available radio monitoring equipment for analog 
communications found in, for example, taxi-cab radios and home police 
scanners. The Note is amended to also generally exclude equipment 
designed for mobile telecommunications network operators, designed for 
the ``development'' or ``production of mobile telecommunications 
equipment or systems, or specially designed for the interception of 
analog Private Mobile Radio (PMR), IEEE 802.11 WLAN.
    Nota Bene (NB) 1 is amended by removing the text ``For GNSS jamming 
equipment,'' and adding the text ``For items specified by 5A001.f.1 
(including as previously specified by 5A001.i), see also 5A980 and U.S. 
Munitions List (22 CFR 121)'', because 5A001.f is expanded and there 
may be some related equipment in the International Traffic in Arms 
Regulations (ITAR) (22 CFR Parts 120-130) that should be considered 
when classifying this type of equipment.
    A Nota Bene (NB) 2 is added to reference 5A001.b.5 for radio 
receivers in order to clarify that 5A001.f does not apply to radio 
receivers.
    5A001.h (Counter Improvised Explosive Device (IED) equipment and 
related equipment) is amended by adding a new paragraph h.2 to control 
equipment using techniques designed to enable radio communications in 
the same frequency channels on which co-located equipment specified by 
5A001.h.1 is transmitting.
    The Nota Bene (NB) is amended by removing the phrase ``ECCN 5A001.f 
and,'' because that reference now appears in 5A001.h.1.
    5A001.i is reserved and the items are moved to 5A001.f.1, as 
explained above. To harmonize with this move, seventeen (17) references 
to 5A001.i are changed to 5A001.f.1 in Sec.  738.3(a)(1) (Commerce 
Country Chart structure--ECCNs that require a license to all 
destinations), six (6) references are changed in Sec.  740.2(a)(3) 
(Restrictions on all license exceptions), five (5) references are 
changed in Sec.  742.13 (a)(1) (License requirements for communications 
intercepting devices * * *), six (6) references are changed in Sec.  
746.7(a)(1) (Iran license requirements), and six (6)

[[Page 37376]]

references are changed in Sec.  752.3(a)(7) (Special Comprehensive 
License ineligible items).
    The Nota Bene (NB) of 5A001.i is amended to reference 5A001.f.1 for 
items previously specified by 5A001.i.
    5A980 (Devices primarily useful for the surreptitious interception 
of wire, oral, or electronic communications) is amended to replace the 
reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1 in the Heading and the Related 
Controls paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section. The 
structure of the List of Items Controlled section is corrected by 
adding the Unit paragraph, adding the Related Controls Header to the 
Related Controls paragraph, and adding the Related Definitions 
paragraph.

5B001 (Telecommunication Test, Inspection and Production Equipment, 
Components and Accessories)

    The License Exception STA eligibility paragraph is amended by 
removing ``use,'' because ``use'' was removed from control in 5B001.a.
    5B001.a. is amended to delete ``or use'' as no ``use'' software of 
concern could be identified for this entry.
    The Note to 5B001.a was amended to replace ``control'' with ``apply 
to'' to conform with Wassenaar.

5D001 (``Software'')

    The SL control paragraph in the License Requirements section is 
amended by replacing the reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because 
that equipment was moved in 5A001.
    The License Requirements Notes paragraph in the License 
Requirements section is amended by replacing three references to 
5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

5D980 (Other ``Software'', Other Than That Controlled by 5D001* * *)

    The Header is amended by replacing the reference to 5A001.i with 
5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.
    The Related Control paragraph in the List of Items Controlled 
section is amended by replacing three references to 5A001.i with 
5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

5E001 (``Technology'')

    The SL control paragraph in the License Requirements section is 
amended by replacing the reference to 5A001.i with 5A001.f.1, because 
that equipment was moved in 5A001.
    The License Requirements Notes paragraph in the License 
Requirements section is amended by replacing two references to 5A001.i 
with 5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.
    5E001.d (``Technology'' * * * for the ``development'' or 
``production'' of Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuit (MMIC) power 
amplifiers specially designed for telecommunications) is amended by 
revising paragraphs 5E001.d.4, d.5, and d.6, as well as adding new 
paragraphs 5E001.d.7 and d.8, to mirror the revision made to 3A001.b.2 
(explained above).

5E980 (``Technology'', other than that controlled by 5E001.a * * *)

    The Header is amended by replacing two references to 5A001.i with 
5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.
    The Related Control paragraph in the List of Items Controlled 
section is amended by replacing five references to 5A001.i with 
5A001.f.1, because that equipment was moved in 5A001.

Category 5 Part 2--``Information Security''

    The Cryptography Note (Note 3 to Category 5 Part 2 (Cat 5P2)) is 
changed in two ways. It is reformatted in order to add a new paragraph 
.b, and a new Note to the Cryptography Note is added to help industry 
better understand how the existing `mass market' provisions and 
requirements of the Cryptography Note (i.e., new paragraph a.) are 
applied.
    Regarding the new paragraph b., this new paragraph provides that 
ECCN 5A002 and 5D002 do not control certain hardware components of 
existing items described in paragraph a. of the Note. While certain 
components of ``mass market'' products described in paragraph a. to 
Note 3 are themselves sold or distributed through ``mass market'' 
channels and are therefore decontrolled under paragraph a., other 
comparable components for ``mass market'' items are not separately sold 
to the public via retail channels. New paragraph b. removes ECCN 5A002 
and 5D002 controls from hardware components that are factory-installed 
into a mass marketed product, and from functionally equivalent 
aftermarket replacements of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) 
components--components that are identical in form, fit and function to 
the OEM components, with certain restrictions as follows.
    First, paragraph b. is limited to hardware components for existing 
items described in paragraph a. of Note 3 and to hardware components 
that have been designed for those existing items. Paragraph b. does not 
apply to a component that is designed for a brand new type of item that 
has never been sold before, or that has not previously had 
cryptographic functionality. Instead, the end-product must first be 
established as a `mass market' product before its components may 
qualify for paragraph b.
    Second, paragraph b.1. excludes components whose primary function 
or set of functions is ``information security.'' Therefore, 
cryptographic co-processors, cryptographic libraries/modules, Trusted 
Platform Modules (TPMs), and components that provide an open 
cryptographic interface are not eligible for decontrol under paragraph 
b.
    Third, paragraph b.2. excludes components that could introduce new 
cryptographic functionality or enhance existing cryptographic 
functionality into an array of products, if such functionality does not 
already exist in the `mass market.' Components that provide enhanced or 
additional cryptographic functionality to an existing `mass market' 
product are not decontrolled under paragraph b. This exclusion applies 
to both `standard add-on accessories'--additions to `mass market' 
products that impart new features--and to `tailored add-on 
accessories'--additions to `mass market' products that transform the 
product into a non-consumer type item (e.g., tailored for network 
operators, security operators, police/military/intelligence, etc.)
    Paragraph b.3 excludes components that provide custom/substitute 
cryptography or made-to-order customizations (e.g., tailored form/fit/
function) but no algorithm changes. The requirements set forth in 
Section 742.15(b) for mass market components also apply to the hardware 
components eligible for decontrol under new paragraph b. to Note 3.
    Paragraph b.4. states that details of the component and end-item 
must be available to BIS when necessary. BIS does not intend to change 
the scope of any of the reporting requirements under License Exception 
ENC. In particular, BIS does not intend to require exporters to collect 
any more information on the products that a component is going into 
than is currently required under the EAR.
    In adding this new paragraph b. to the Cryptography Note (Cat 5P2 
Note 3) in the existing provisions of Cat 5P2, Note 3 become new 
paragraph a.
    In terms of how these existing `mass market' provisions are 
applied, paragraph 1 of the new Note to the Cryptography Note provides 
guidance on what it means for an item to be considered `mass market' 
and `generally available to the public'. This Note paragraph 1 makes it 
clear that in order

[[Page 37377]]

to meet the `mass market' provisions of Cat 5P2 Note 3 paragraph a., 
the item must be of potential interest to a wide range of individuals 
and businesses, and potential customers do not need to specifically 
consult with a vendor or supplier to learn how much the item costs or 
what its main functional specifications are.
    Paragraph 2. of the Note to the Cryptography Note also makes clear 
that in determining whether an item meets the `mass market' 
qualifications of Note 3 paragraph a., relevant factors such as 
quantity, price, required technical skill, existing sales channels, 
typical customers, typical use, or any exclusionary practices of the 
supplier may be taken into account, in addition to other possible 
considerations.
    The purpose of this new Note to the Cryptography Note is not to 
change the existing scope of control of the Cryptography Note, but to 
make current practices of interpretation more clear to the public.
    Although the control text only mentions hardware components, the 
decontrol also applies to software components that are specially 
designed for a particular hardware component that has already been 
released from control.
    For a component that meets new paragraph b. of the Cryptography 
Note 3 in Category 5 Part 2 of the Commerce Control List (Supplement 
No. 1 to part 774) that has previously been classified under ECCN 5A002 
pursuant to Sec.  740.17(b)(3), a new classification by BIS (i.e., a 
request for a CCATS) is not required to make the component eligible for 
mass market treatment under Sec.  742.15(b)(3) and reclassified under 
ECCN 5A992. However, a reclassified component must be included in a 
self-classification report submitted to BIS and the ENC Encryption 
Request Coordinator no later than February 1 following the calendar 
year in which it is first exported or reexported as a mass market item 
(see Sec.  742.15(c) for complete instructions on submitting encryption 
self-classification reports).

5A002 (``Information Security'' Systems, Equipment and Components 
Therefor)

    The Related Controls paragraph in the List of Items Controlled 
Section is amended by redesignating paragraphs (1) and (2) as (2) and 
(3), and adding a new paragraph (1) to specify that 5A002.a controls 
``components'' providing the means or functions necessary for 
``information security.'' All such ``components'' are presumptively 
``specially designed'' and controlled within 5A002.a. Therefore, no 
analysis of the definition of ``specially designed'' is needed. BIS is 
making this change to clarify that no changes are made to how the U.S. 
Government currently interprets the scope of 5A002.a as a result of the 
implementation of the newly revised definition of ``specially 
designed.''
    On June 19, 2012 (77 FR 36419), BIS published the advanced notice 
of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) entitled ``Feasibility of Enumerating 
``Specially Designed'' Components.'' In that ANPRM, BIS requested 
public comments to identify where on the CCL it was possible to replace 
the term ``specially designed'' with other control criteria. Category 
5, Part 2 was identified by one commenter as a good candidate for 
enumerating ``components'' that warrant control. This commenter 
supported making 5A002.a into a positive list of ``components'' 
controlled for ``information security.'' The commenter indicated 5A002 
is already more of an enumerated control versus a catch-all control and 
therefore the term ``specially designed'' was not needed. This new Note 
to paragraph a. is responsive to that comment and also consistent with 
the larger Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative objective of making 
the CCL more ``positive.''
    The addition of Note 1 to the Related Controls paragraph of 5A002 
does not change the scope of the ECCN, but rather is limited to adding 
an explanatory note regarding the scope of ``components'' controlled 
under 5A002.a. Currently, the U.S. Government is working on a regime 
proposal to the Wassenaar Arrangement that would replace the term 
``specially designed'' in 5A002.a with ``providing the means or 
functions necessary.'' This work is being undertaken by the U.S. 
Government to better reflect the intent of this control on 
``components'' under 5A002.a and to better reflect how the U.S. 
Government currently interprets the scope of this control on 
``components'' under 5A002.a.
    The Note g. to the Items paragraph is also amended by replacing the 
reference to paragraphs .b to e. of the Cryptography Note (Note 3 in 
Category 5--Part 2) with paragraphs a.2. to a.5. of the Cryptography 
Note in order to harmonize with the changes made to the Cryptography 
Note.
    The Note to the Items paragraph is amended by adding the phrase 
``or not exceeding 100 meters according to the manufacturer's 
specifications for equipment that cannot interconnect with more than 
seven devices'' to the end of paragraph i. to raise the range, because 
there are many products on the market today that exceed this 
limitation. This revision will only decontrol such equipment that 
cannot interconnect with more than seven (7) devices (e.g., Bluetooth). 
If a type of Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) equipment can 
interconnect with more than seven devices, it continues to only be 
released by 5A002 Note i. if its nominal operating range does not 
exceed 30 meters.
    In addition, the definition of ``personal area network,'' found in 
Part 772 of the EAR, is updated to account for this range increase in 
paragraph i. of the Note.
    5A002.a.1 is amended by adding the phrase ``or execution of copy-
protected ``software'' to the exclusion list in paragraph a.1, as well 
as Technical Note 1, to clarify that such items are still excluded from 
control. Prior to June 25, 2010, products with cryptographic 
functionality limited to copy protection (and other digital rights 
management (DRM) functionality) were originally decontrolled by 
decontrol Note c. to 5A002. When Note 4 to Category 5, Part 2 (Cat 5P2) 
was implemented on June 25, 2010, paragraph c. of the decontrol note to 
5A002 was removed and a pointer (Nota Bene) to Cat 5P2 Note 4 was added 
to make clear that this decontrol was subsumed into Cat 5P2 Note 4. 
However, since then, exporters have been confused about how copy 
protection falls under Note 4. To make it clear that copy protection is 
not controlled in 5A002, this rule adds the phrase ``or execution of 
copy-protected software'' into the exclusion note. This does not change 
the scope of what is decontrolled, as Note 4 in Cat 5P2 remains 
unchanged and in full effect. By application of Note 4 in Cat 5P2 
(especially paragraph a.3, regarding digital rights management (DRM)), 
copy protection and other DRM functionality is excluded from 
classification under Cat 5P2, even if the copy protection scheme (or 
other DRM) uses ``cryptography.'' Moreover, copy protection 
functionality is not specified for control in any CCL Category. 
Accordingly, EAR99 software with addition of cryptographic 
functionality limited to copy protection remains classified as EAR99.
    A Note to 5A002.a.2 is added to clarify that 5A002.a.2 includes 
systems or equipment, designed or modified to perform cryptanalysis by 
means of reverse engineering.
    5A002.a.7 (Non-cryptographic information and communications 
technology (ICT) security systems and devices) is amended by replacing 
the phrase ``evaluated to an assurance level exceeding'' with ``that 
have been

[[Page 37378]]

evaluated and certified by a national authority to exceed'' in order to 
clarify that the intent is to control only those items which have been 
evaluated against the applicable criteria and have subsequently 
received a certification from a national security authority attesting 
that the items exceed class EAL-6 (evaluation assurance level) of the 
Common Criteria (CC) or equivalent.
    5A992 (Equipment not controlled by 5A002) is amended by adding a 
Note to paragraph .b of the Items paragraph in the List of Items 
Controlled section. The Note is added to clarify that 5A992 does not 
control products with cryptographic functionality limited to copy 
protection.
    5E002 (``Technology'') is amended by adding a Note to clarify that 
``5E002 includes ``information security'' technical data resulting from 
procedures carried out to evaluate or determine the implementation of 
functions, features or techniques specified in Category 5, Part 2''. 
The purpose of this Note is to clarify two things. First, that existing 
5E002 controls on ``technology'' includes ``information security'' 
technical data that may be revealed or conveyed by the security 
evaluation of a product (e.g., for government or commercial 
certification purposes). Second, this Note is added to clarify that 
reverse engineering can be viewed as a form of product evaluation; 
consequently, 5E002 includes reverse engineering data and reports that 
detail the implementation of controlled ``information security'' 
functions, features or techniques by an item.

Category 6--Sensors and Lasers

6A001 (Acoustic Systems, Equipment and Components)

    6A001.a.1.a.2 (Underwater survey equipment designed for seabed 
topographic mapping) is amended by replacing ``all'' with ``any'' and 
cascading the parameters in order to add a new control for additional 
survey equipment identified in 6A001.a.1.a.2.b. Note that the 
parameters for the previously controlled survey equipment, now in 
6A001.a.1.a.2.a, remain unchanged.
    6A001.a.1.a.2.b is added to control underwater survey equipment not 
specified by 6A001.a.1.a.2.a. A new Technical Note is added that states 
acoustic sensor pressure rating determines the depth rating in 
6A001.a.1.a.2. Additionally, the existing Technical Note defining 
`sounding rate' is modified to specify 100% coverage.
    6A001.a.1.a.3 (Side Scan Sonar (SSS) or Synthetic Aperture Sonar 
(SAS), designed for seabed imaging) is amended by adding an `along 
track resolution' parameter to a revised a.1.a.3.b and moving the 
`across track resolution' parameter in paragraph a.1.a.3.b to new 
paragraph a.1.a.3.c. Editorial revisions are made to the Technical 
Notes as well.
    6A002 (Optical Sensors or Equipment And Components Therefor) is 
amended by replacing the periods with semi-colons at the end of 
paragraphs a.3.a.2.b, a.3.b.2.b, a.3.g.3 and c.3 in the Items paragraph 
of the List of Items Controlled section to correct the punctuation. In 
addition, 6A002.a.3.d.2.b is amended by removing ``(SPRITE),'' because 
the SPRITE is no longer in production and the performance of the 
detector and the sensors it was integrated into has been surpassed by 
more modern Focal Plane Array (FPA) developments. The word ``detector'' 
is added before element. ``Element'' is made plural. Capital letters 
PR, I, T and E, are all replaced by lower case letters.

6A005 (``Lasers'' (Other Than Those Described in 0B001.g.5 or .h.6), 
Components and Optical Equipment)

    Paragraphs a.2, a.3, b.2, and b.3 in the Items paragraph of the 
List of Items Controlled are amended by replacing ``520'' with ``510.'' 
Frequency-doubled Yb:YAG lasers using second harmonic generation (SHG) 
emit green light at 515 nm. These lasers are increasingly being used in 
commercial laser materials processing, replacing Nd:YAG lasers. Given 
the development of this application, it was determined appropriate to 
change the wavelength from ``520'' to ``510'' in 6A005.a.3 and 
6A005.b.3, to control Yb:YAG SHG lasers at the same power level as 
Nd:YAG SHG lasers. The change to a.2 and b.2 accounts for the shift in 
wavelength in a.3 and b.3 so a gap in control was not created. As a 
result of this change the NP controls are expanded to include 6A005.a.3 
and all of b.3, instead of just b.3.a. 6A005.a.3 is added to paragraph 
(d) of the License Requirements Note, which outlines NP controls.
    6A005.a.6.a (Non-``tunable'' continuous wave ``(CW) lasers'') is 
amended by removing paragraphs a.6.a.1 and a.6.a.2 to simplify the 
control text. The output power control level of 150 W is replaced with 
200 W to adjust for technical advancements.

6C004 (Optical Materials)

    6C004.b (Electro-optic materials and non-linear optical materials) 
and .c (Non-linear optical materials, other than those specified by 
6C004.b) are amended in order to control new materials that can be used 
in military applications. Advances in crystal growth have facilitated 
the manufacturing of additional non-linear optical materials. The new 
citations identify specific materials by name or using the updated 
parameters under 6C004.c.3 and c.4 that can be fabricated into non-
linear optical components. These non-linear crystals have recently 
become useful due to advances in manufacturing. They can now be grown 
large enough and with low defects so that they can be cut and polished 
into optical components. The newly listed materials are of interest 
because they can operate at high optical powers that cause other non-
linear materials to degrade.
    6C005 (Synthetic crystalline ``laser'' host material in unfinished 
form) is amended by removing 6C005.b (Alexandrite) and reserving the 
paragraph, because Alexandrite lasers are tuneable from 700 to 800 nm 
and the majority of applications for alexandrite lasers are for 
dermatology and hair removal.

Category 7--Navigation and Avionics

    7A001 (Accelerometers) is amended by replacing the ``bias'' 
``repeatability'' of less (better) than 5,000 micro g with 1,250 micro 
g in paragraph a.2.a and replacing the ``scale factor'' 
``repeatability'' of less (better) than 2,500 ppm with 1,250 ppm in 
paragraph a.2.b, because improvements in Microelectromechanical Systems 
(MEMS) technology have led to availability of equivalent performance 
accelerometers in commercial products, as well as widespread foreign 
availability.

7D003 (``Software'')

    The License Exception STA ineligibility paragraph is amended by 
removing the phrase ``d.1 to d.4 or d.7'' because these controls have 
been moved to a new ECCN 7D004, and paragraph 7D003.d is removed and 
reserved by this rule. Specifically, these controls are moved to7D004.a 
to .g, with the exception of 7D003.d.5 (Airborne automatic direction 
finding equipment). 7D003.d.5 is removed and reserved as reflected in 
the new paragraph 7D004.e, because there was no reason for this 
relatively rudimentary item to be identified separately from other 
navigation entries. Because the ``source code'' in 7D003.d is already 
addressed elsewhere more specifically, this entry created a redundancy 
in controls and is removed. For more details about the redundancy see 
the preamble text for 7D004 below.
    A Nota Bene (N.B.) is added to reference the new location (7D004) 
for the control of 7D003.d source code.

[[Page 37379]]

    7D004 (``Source code'' incorporating ``development'' ``technology'' 
specified by 7E004.a or 7E004.b) is added to the CCL to control 
``source code'' moved from 7D003.d. Previously, two sets of technology 
controls addressed the flight controls topic. The first was 7E001, the 
GTN-based ``development'' technology controls relating to the 7D003 
``source code'' entry. The second set of technology controls are under 
7E004.a and 7E004.b, which enumerate specific flight control 
technologies of concern. The existence of both sets of controls created 
an obviously undesirable redundancy. However, it was discovered that 
pertinent ``source code'' ``software'' and ``technology'' was removed 
from control by the WA agreement, which the U.S. will address with WA 
in future meetings to establish appropriate multi-lateral national 
security level controls. In the meantime, ``source code'' for the 
``development'' of fly-by-wire control systems is added to 0D521 No. 2. 
The following technology is added to 0E521 No. 6: ``Technology'' for 
fly-by-wire control systems, as follows: a. ``Technology'' according to 
the General Technology Note for the ``development'' of ``software'' 
controlled by 0D521 No. 2; or b. ``Development'' ``technology'' for 
``active flight control systems'' for control law compensation for 
sensor location or dynamic airframe loads, i.e., compensation for 
sensor vibration environment or for variation of sensor location from 
the center of gravity. (See Supplement No. 5 to part 774.) There is a 
pending rule that adds technology to 0E521 Nos. 2-5, therefore this 
rule reserves those paragraphs in the table.
    As described in the final rule that established the 0Y521 series 
and that was published in the Federal Register on April 13, 2012 (77 FR 
22191), items are added to the 0Y521 series upon a determination by the 
Department of Commerce, with the concurrence of the Departments of 
Defense and State, that the items should be controlled for export 
because the items provide at least a significant military or 
intelligence advantage to the United States or foreign policy reasons 
justify control. The ``source code'' for the ``development'' of fly-by-
wire control systems in 0D521 No. 2 and the fly-by-wire technology in 
0E521 No. 6 is controlled for regional stability (RS) Column 1 reasons. 
ECCN 0D521 and 0E521 items are subject to a nearly worldwide license 
requirement (i.e., for every country except Canada) with a case-by-case 
license review policy, through regional stability (RS Column 1) 
controls. Only License Exception GOV is available for this technology 
for official use by personnel and agencies of the U.S. Government.
    If your fly-by-wire software or technology was controlled by 7D003 
or 7E001 and is now classified as 0D521 No. 2 or 0E521 No. 6, then you 
do not need to replace your existing licenses or classifications 
(CCATS), because it is considered a ``non-material'' change pursuant to 
Section 750.7(c)(1)(viii) of the EAR. If you were going to request an 
extension for licenses with these ECCNs, you may still request 
extensions of these licenses instead of replacing them because of this 
ECCN change.
    In order to maintain the more detailed descriptions of the specific 
flight control topics covered by 7E004.a and 7E004.b, WA agreed to 
remove the 7E001 reference to flight control ``source code''. This 
modification is accomplished by moving 7D003.d to 7D004, and removing 
7D004 from 7E001 coverage. Reference language is added to the new 7D004 
that points to the technology controls in 7E004.a and 7E004.b, as well 
as 0D521 No. 2 and 0E521 No. 6 for fly-by-wire source code and 
technology.
    A new exclusion Note is added to 7D004 that states that ``7D004 
does not apply to ``source code'' associated with common computer 
elements and utilities (e.g., input signal acquisition, output signal 
transmission, computer program and data loading, built-in test, task 
scheduling mechanisms) not providing a specific flight control system 
function,'' to clarify that the scope of these entries is limited to 
flight control system function.

7E001 (``Technology'' According to the GTN for the ``Development'' of 
7A, 7B or 7D)

    The Header is amended to specify the three software ECCNs 7D001, 
7D002, and 7D003, in order to remove the new 7D004 from the scope of 
7E001, which was created to control flight control ``source code'' in 
one place instead of in 7D003 and 7E001. The Related Controls paragraph 
is amended by adding a reference to 0D521 No. 2 for ``source code'' for 
the ``development'' of fly-by-wire control systems and 0E521 No. 6 for 
``technology'' for the ``development'' of fly-by-wire control systems. 
See explanation for the creation of 0D521 No. 2 and 0E521 No. 6 under 
7D004 in the preamble of this rule.

7E004 (Other ``technology'')

    The Related Controls paragraph in the List of Items Controlled 
section is amended to add references to 0D521 No. 2 (``source code'' 
for the ``development'' of fly-by-wire control systems), and 0E521 No. 
6 (for ``technology'' for the ``development'' of ``software'' 
controlled by 0D521 No. 2).
    7E004.b (``Development'' ``technology'', as specified, for ``active 
flight control systems'' (including fly-by-wire or fly-by-light)) is 
amended to more specifically list photonic technology of concern by 
providing descriptions to positively identify the critical photonic 
functions in a fly-by-light system.
    7E004.b.1 is replaced, because the technology for interconnecting 
multiple microelectronic processing elements, such as microprocessors, 
in order to speed up processing is now widely available. In addition, 
active flight control solutions today can easily run in real-time on a 
single processor. 7E004.b.1 now controls fly-by-light technology. 
Photonics-based flight control systems, or ``fly-by-light'', are in 
development to provide a number of system-level benefits, including 
tolerance of elevated Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) and reduced 
systems volume and weight.
    7E004.b.2 is removed and reserved, because control law compensation 
technology as described at the general level is now widely available.
    7E004.b.3 is revised, because the former text for 7E004.b.3 dealt 
with fault detection, isolation, tolerance, and resolution (i.e., 
``reconfiguration''). The only technique implied by the text is 
``redundancy'', which was too broad and could encompass technology that 
is widely understood and employed. The revised 7E004.b.3 text updates 
the fault detection and isolation aspects to a more appropriate 
characterization of the emerging technology for protection- predictive 
diagnosis. This technology can determine the onset of a future failure 
for more preemptive mitigation actions.
    7E004.b.4 (``active flight control system'' technology) is revised, 
because it was outdated. The revised text links the real-time 
identification of component failures, and allows for mitigation during 
degradations prior to full failure. These linked 7E004.b.3 and 
7E004.b.4 updates better represent the emerging state-of-the-art 
technologies with emphasis on preemption and mitigation capabilities.
    Note to 7E004.b.4 and Note to 7E004.b are added and the Note to 
7E004.b.3 is revised to clarify that the scope of these entries is 
limited to flight control system function. The Note to 7E004.b.5 is 
changed to conform to the WA text.

Category 9--Aerospace and Propulsion

    9A001 (Aero gas turbine engines) is amended by replacing the phrase 
``Participating State'' with ``Wassenaar

[[Page 37380]]

Arrangement Participating State'' in the introductory text of paragraph 
.a and .b in Note 9A001.a of the Items paragraph in the List of Items 
Controlled section, because there is currently no definition for this 
term in the EAR. However, it is understood that it refers to members of 
the Wassenaar Arrangement.

9A018 (Equipment on the Wassenaar Arrangement Munitions List)

    ECCN 9A018 is amended by revising the List of Items Controlled 
section. 9A018.b is amended to implement the WA agreements for 2012 to 
ML6 on the WA Munitions List. Paragraph 9A018.b is separated into two 
parts. 9A018.b.1 covers ground transport vehicles (including trailers) 
and parts and components therefor designed and modified for non-combat 
military use. 9A018.b.2 is the modified portion of the former 9A018.b, 
which covers other ground vehicles. Also, a Note is added to exclude 
vehicles for transporting money or valuables. The revision clarifies 
that ``all-wheel drive'' vehicles have transmissions that supply drive 
to the front and rear wheels simultaneously even if the vehicle has 
other wheels that provide no driving force. The second change limits 
the scope of the paragraph to vehicles with a gross vehicle weight 
rating greater than 4,500 kilograms. The third change replaces the term 
``capable of off road use'' with the term ``designed or modified for 
off road use.'' The fourth change is that ``components'' are separated 
out from the vehicles and placed in 9A018.b.2 with parameters.

9E003 (Other ``Technology'')

    9E003.a.5 (Cooled turbine blades, vanes or ``tip-shrouds'') is 
amended by increasing the gas path temperature from 1643K (1370 [deg]C) 
to 1693 K (1420 [deg]C), because as the material development for 
airfoils has reached a steady state, increases in higher ``combustor 
exit temperature'' can only come from advanced airfoil cooling. Taking 
note of the higher combustor exit temperature for 9E003.a.2 that was 
implemented in 2012, it then follows to increase the limiting 
temperatures for cooled turbine blades, vanes and ``tip-shrouds'' in 
9E003.a.5.
    A Technical Note is added to define `gas path temperature' as this 
term is used in the newly revised 9E003.a.5 parameter.
    9E003.h.3 is amended by replacing the period with a semi-colon.

Supplement No. 1 to Part 774 (the Commerce Control List), Supplement 
No. 2 ``General Technology and Software Notes''

    The ``General Software Note'' (GSN) is amended by adding some 
provisions that align with what WA Participating States have already 
been doing. While WA implements the GSN as a decontrol note, the U.S. 
implements it as criteria for License Exception TSU and a cross 
reference to Sec.  740.13 is included. Additionally, paragraph 2 of the 
GSN that refers to ``in the public domain,'' is replaced with a 
reference to Section 734.3(b)(3) for regulations that set forth 
provisions for ``publicly available technology and software.''
    Paragraph 3 of the GSN sets forth the provision to cover minimum 
necessary ``software'' for the installation, operation, maintenance 
(checking) or repair of authorized equipment. It was decided to add 
``object code'' to make sure that ``source code'' is not released by 
the GSN. Also a Note was included to clarify that the minimum necessary 
``object code'' is not software that can enhance or improve the 
performance of an item or provide new features or functionality. The 
GSN does not apply to ``software'' controlled by Category 5 Part 2 
``Information Security,'' instead a similar note addresses such 
``software'' in Note 3 to Category 5 Part 2 ``Cryptography Note.''

Supplement No. 5 to Part 774 (Items Classified Under ECCNS 0A521, 
0B521, 0C521, 0D521 AND 0E521)

    This rule revises section 0D521 and 0E521 of Supplement No. 5 to 
part 774 to add two new entries 0D521 No. 2 and 0E521 No. 6. The 
explanation for these additions is found under 7D004 in the preamble of 
this rule.
    Supplement No. 1 to Sec.  740.11 (Additional restrictions on use of 
license Exception GOV) is amended by removing the phrase ``radio 
frequency (RF) transmitting equipment'' and adding in its place 
``Counter Improvised Explosive Device (IED) equipment and related 
equipment'' in two places in paragraph (a)(1)(vii)(C) and in two places 
in paragraph (b)(1)(vii)(C), because the scope of 5A001.h is expanded 
to control more equipment.

Part 742 (Control Policy--CCL Based Controls)

    Section 742.15 (Encryption Items) is amended by revising paragraph 
(d). This rule adds paragraph (d)(2) to grandfather classification 
requests and encryption registrations submitted after June 15, 2010 for 
components that received a classification of 5X002 Sec.  742.17(b)(3) 
and that meet the newly added paragraph (b) of the Cryptography Note 3 
in Category 5 Part 2 of the Commerce Control List in Supplement No. 1 
to part 774, if you include these components in your self-
classification report.

Part 743 Special Reporting

    WA has three levels of controls as reflected in its Basic List 
(BL), Sensitive List (SL), and Very Sensitive List (VSL). 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 
United States 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, STA, 
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.
    The Note to Section 743.1(c)(1)(ii) is simplified by combining the 
list of software and technology that require WA reporting under ECCNs 
2D001, 2E001 and 2E002, as well as harmonizing these requirements with 
the changes made to the WA Sensitive List.

Part 770 Interpretations

    Section 770.2 is amended by revising paragraph (h) ``Ground 
Vehicles'' to harmonize with changes WA made to ML 6. WA changed ML 6 
to clarify the scope of ML 6 by adding three specific parameter 
paragraphs to distinguish military vehicles from commercial vehicles 
used for security.

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

    The definition for ``diffusion bonding'' is amended by removing the 
word ``molecular'', replacing the phrase ``two separate metals'' with 
``two separate pieces of metals'', and adding a phrase ``wherein the 
principal mechanism is interdiffusion of atoms across the interface'' 
to the end of the definition. It was inappropriate to use the term 
``molecular'' in describing metallic bonds, because molecules do not 
exist in solid-state metals. In addition, to achieve diffusion bonding, 
interdiffusion of at least two separate atoms of metals across the 
interface must occur. Then, through the diffusion bonding, the atoms 
are joined into

[[Page 37381]]

diffusion bonded metals (metallic bonds).
    The definition for ``dynamic signal analyzers'' is removed from 
Sec.  772.1. The existing controls on Dynamic Signal Analyzers are 
commonly interpreted to require both phase and amplitude at the output. 
By deleting the concept of ``Dynamic Signal Analyzer'' and replacing it 
with ``Signal Analyzer'' the requirement that both phase and amplitude 
be in the output is removed.
    The definition for ``frequency mask trigger'' is added to define 
pulse equipment (3A002.c.5) that allows the detection and processing of 
unknown short duration, transient, sporadic, and burst RF signals.
    The definition for ``object code'' is amended by replacing ``(Cat 
9)'' with ``(GSN)'' because this term is not used in Cat 9 and it is 
now used in the General Software Note to make sure that the GSN only 
covers object code and not source code.
    The definition for ``personal area network'' is amended by adding 
the phrase ``and their nearby surrounding spaces'' to harmonize with 
the range increase included in the 5A002 exclusion Note .i limits (not 
exceeding 100 meters).
    The definition for ``real-time bandwidth'' is revised to better 
define the concept of gap-free analysis of the input data, and to 
assure that the scope of control remains focused on what ``signal 
analyzers'' was intended to control.
    The definition for ``space-qualified'' is amended by removing the 
reference to Cat 8, because Cat 8 no longer has ``space-qualified'' 
equipment. The revision of the text was to clarify the definition and 
close a loophole.
    The definition for ``substrate blanks'' is amended by replacing 
``Cat 6'' with ``Cat 3 and 6,'' because this term is now used in 
3B001.h.1 to control multi-layer masks with a phase shift layer.

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., p. 783 (2002), as 
amended by Executive Order 13637 of March 8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 
13, 2013), and as extended by the Notice of August 15, 2012, 77 FR 
49699 (August 16, 2012) has continued the EAR in effect under the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. Sec. Sec.  1701 
et seq.). BIS continues to carry out the provisions of the Export 
Administration Act, as appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, 
pursuant to Executive Order 13222 as amended by Executive Order 13637.

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 
June 20, 2013, 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 August 19, 2013. Any such items 
not actually exported before midnight, on August 19, 2013, 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 to be a ``significant 
regulatory action'' although not economically significant, under 
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. 3501 et 
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 email 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 30-day 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 preventing 
destabilizing accumulations of such items. The Wassenaar Arrangement 
consists of 41 member countries that act on a consensus basis and the 
changes set forth in this rule implement agreements reached at the 
December 2012 plenary session of the WA. Because 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 were 
delayed to allow for notice and comment and a 30-day delay in 
effectiveness, 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

[[Page 37382]]

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. 601 
et 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.

follows:


Sec.  742.13  Communications intercepting devices; software and 
technology for communications intercepting devices.

    (a) License requirement. (1) In support of U.S. foreign policy to 
prohibit the export of items that may be used for the surreptitious 
interception of wire, oral, or electronic communications, a license is 
required for all destinations, including Canada, for ECCNs having an 
``SL'' under the ``Reason for Control'' paragraph. These items include 
any electronic, mechanical, or other device primarily useful for the 
surreptitious interception of wire, oral, or electronic communications 
(ECCNs 5A001.f.1 and 5A980); and for related ``software'' primarily 
useful for the surreptitious interception of wire, oral, or electronic 
communications (ECCN 5D001.c and 5D980.a); and ``software'' primarily 
useful for the ``development'', ``production'', or ``use'' of devices 
controlled under ECCNs 5A001.f.1 and 5A980 (ECCNs 5D001.a and 5D980.b); 
and for ``technology'' primarily useful for the ``development'', 
``production'', or ``use'' of items controlled by ECCNs 5A001.f.1, 
5D001.a (for 5A001.f.1), 5A980 and 5D980 (ECCNs 5E001.a and 5E980); and

Sec.  770.2  Item Interpretations.

* * * * *

[[Page 37384]]

    (h) Interpretation 8: Ground vehicles. (1) The U.S. Department of 
Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security has export licensing 
jurisdiction over ground transport vehicles (including trailers), 
parts, and components therefor specially designed or modified for non-
combat military use. Vehicles in this category are primarily transport 
vehicles designed or modified for transporting cargo, personnel and/or 
equipment, or to move other vehicles and equipment over land and roads 
in close support of fighting vehicles and troops. The U.S. Department 
of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security also has export licensing 
jurisdiction over vehicles specified in 9A018.b.2, if they do not have 
armor described in 22 CFR 121, Category XIII. In this section, and in 
ECCN 9A018, the word ``unarmed'' means not having weapons installed, 
not having mountings for weapons installed, and not having special 
reinforcements for mountings for weapons.
    (2) Modification of a ground vehicle for military use entails a 
structural, electrical or mechanical change involving one or more 
specially designed military components. Such components include, but 
are not limited to:
    (i) Pneumatic tire casings of a kind designed to be bullet-proof or 
to run when deflated;
    (ii) Tire inflation pressure control systems, operated from inside 
a moving vehicle;
    (iii) Armored protection of vital parts, (e.g., fuel tanks or 
vehicle cabs); and
    (iv) Special reinforcements for mountings for weapons.
    (3) Scope of ECCN 9A018.b: Ground transport vehicles (including 
trailers) and parts and components therefor specially designed or 
modified for non-combat military use are controlled by ECCN 9A018.b.1. 
Unarmed vehicles specified in 9A018.b.2 that are not described in 
paragraph (h)(4) of this section. ECCN 9A018.b does not cover civil 
vehicles designed or modified for transporting money or valuables even 
if such vehicles incorporate items described in paragraphs (h)(2)(i), 
(ii), or (iii) of this section. Ground vehicles that are not described 
in paragraph (h)(4) of this section and that are not covered by either 
ECCN 9A018.b or 9A990 are EAR99, meaning that they are subject to the 
EAR, but not listed in any specific ECCN.
    (4) Related control: The Department of State, Directorate of 
Defense Trade Controls has export licensing jurisdiction for all 
military ground armed or armored vehicles and parts and components 
specific thereto as described in 22 CFR part 121, Category VII. The 
Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls also has 
export licensing jurisdiction for all-wheel drive vehicles capable of 
off-road use that have been armed or armored with articles described in 
22 CFR part 121 or that have been manufactured or fitted with special 
reinforcements for mounting arms or other specialized military 
equipment described in 22 CFR part 121.

Sec.  772.1  Definitions of terms as used in the Export Administration 
Regulations (EAR).

* * * * *
    Diffusion bonding. (Cat 1, 2, and 9)--A solid state joining of at 
least two separate pieces of metals into a single piece with a joint 
strength equivalent to that of the weakest material, wherein the 
principal mechanism is interdiffusion of atoms across the interface.
* * * * *
    Frequency mask trigger. (Cat 3)--For ``signal analyzers'' a 
mechanism where the trigger function is able to select a frequency 
range to be triggered on as a subset of the acquisition bandwidth while 
ignoring other signals that may also be present within the same 
acquisition bandwidth. A ``frequency mask trigger'' may contain more 
than one independent set of limits.
* * * * *
    Personal area network. (Cat 5 Part 2)--A data communication system 
having all of the following characteristics:
    (a) Allows an arbitrary number of independent or interconnected 
`data devices' to communicate directly with each other; and
    (b) Is confined to the communication between devices within the 
immediate vicinity of an individual person or device controller (e.g., 
single room, office, or automobile, and their nearby surrounding 
spaces).

    Technical Note: `Data device' means equipment capable of 
transmitting or receiving sequences of digital information.

* * * * *
    Real time bandwidth. (Cat 3)--For ``signal analyzers'', the widest 
frequency range for which the analyzer can continuously transform time 
domain data entirely into frequency-domain results, using Fourier or 
other discrete time transform that processes every incoming time point 
without gaps or windowing effects that causes a reduction of measured 
amplitude of more than 3 dB below the actual signal amplitude, while 
outputting or displaying the transformed data.
* * * * *
    Space-qualified. (Cat 3 and 6)--Designed, manufactured, or 
qualified through successful testing, for operation at altitudes 
greater than 100 km above the surface of the Earth.

    Note: A determination that a specific item is ``space 
qualified'' by virtue of testing does not mean that other items in 
the same production run or model series are ``space qualified'' if 
not individually tested.
