Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: 
Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform; Correction

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of State is correcting a final rule that 
appeared in the Federal Register of April 16, 2013.

DATES: This rule is effective October 15, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. C. Edward Peartree, Director, 
Office of Defense Trade Controls Policy, Department of State, telephone 
(202) 663-2792; email DDTCResponseTeam@state.gov. ATTN: Regulatory 
Change, Corrections to First ECR Final Rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department provides the following 
corrections to the rule, ``Amendment to the International Traffic in 
Arms Regulations: Initial Implementation of Export Control Reform,'' 
published on April 16, 2013 and effective on October 15, 2013 (78 FR 
22740). As part of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) effort, 
that rule amended the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) 
to revise four U.S Munitions List (USML) categories, provide new 
definitions, and provide policies and procedures regarding the 
licensing of items moving from the export jurisdiction of the 
Department of State to the Department of Commerce.
    Most of the changes in this rule are meant to clarify the 
regulation by correcting grammatical and punctuation errors, providing 
references and more appropriate arrangement of the regulation, and in a 
few instances correcting unintended consequences of the regulation as 
published on April 16. In addition, certain errors and omissions in the 
Transition Plan included in that rule are corrected, and a revised 
Supplement No. 1 to part 126, which takes into account the changes made 
to the USML thus far, is provided.
    Pursuant to ECR, the Department of Commerce has been publishing 
revisions to the Export Administration Regulations, including various 
revisions to the Commerce Control List. Revision of the USML and CCL 
are coordinated so there is uninterrupted regulatory coverage for items 
moving from the jurisdiction of the Department of State to that of the 
Department of Commerce. The Department of Commerce's companion to the 
rule corrected in this notice (see ``Revisions to the Export 
Administration Regulations: Initial Implementation of Export Control 
Reform,'' 78 FR 22660) is also corrected in this edition of the Federal 
Register.
    The following corrections are made to FR Doc. No. 2013-8351, 
``Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Initial 
Implementation of Export Control Reform,'' published on April 16, 2013:

1. On page 22740, in the first column, in the heading, ``22 CFR Parts 
120, 121, and 123'' is corrected to read ``22 CFR Parts 120, 121, 123, 
and 126.''

3. Starting on page 22747, in the third column, through page 22751, in 
the first column, ``Transition Plan'' is revised to read as follows:

Transition Plan

    With the intention of establishing certain necessary licensing 
procedures stemming from ECR implementation and mitigating the impact 
of the changes involved in the revision of the USML and the CCL on U.S. 
license holders and the defense export industry, the Department 
implements the following ``Transition Plan,'' which will describe (1) 
timelines for implementation of changes, (2) certain temporary 
licensing procedures for items transitioning from the USML to the CCL, 
and 3) certain permanent licensing procedures pertaining to the export 
of any item ``subject to the EAR'' (see definition of this term in this 
rule) to be used in or with defense articles controlled on the USML.
    The Department notes the following main points regarding licensing 
procedure during the transition and thereafter:
     There will generally be a 180-day transition period 
between the publication of the final rule for each revised USML 
category and its effective date. This period will allow U.S. license 
holders time to review their current authorizations and prepare for the 
transition to the new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs).
     A license application or other request for authorization 
containing only transitioning items or both USML and transitioning 
items will be accepted by the Department up until the effective date of 
the relevant revised USML category.
     A license or authorization issued by the Department will 
be effective for up to two years from the effective date of the revised 
USML category if all the items listed on the license or authorization 
have transitioned to the export jurisdiction of the Department of 
Commerce.
     A license or authorization issued by the Department will 
be valid until its expiration if some of the items listed on the 
license or authorization have transitioned to the export jurisdiction 
of the Department of Commerce.
     USML categories will have a new (x) paragraph, the purpose 
of which is to allow for Department of State licensing for commodities, 
software, and technical data subject to the EAR, provided those 
commodities, software, and technical data are to be used in or with 
defense articles controlled on the USML and are described in the 
purchase documentation submitted with the application.
    The Department first presented for public comment its plan for 
licensing policies and procedures regarding items moving from the 
export jurisdiction of the Department of State to the Department of 
Commerce on June 21, 2012 (see ``Export Control Reform Transition 
Plan,'' 77 FR 37346). The comment period ended August 6, 2012. 
Seventeen parties filed comments during the established comment period 
recommending changes. The Department's evaluation of the written 
comments and recommendations follows.
    Eight commenting parties stated that the proposed 45-day transition 
period was insufficient time to accomplish all that was necessary to 
adapt company systems to the changes and recommended longer transition 
periods of varying lengths. The Department has accepted the 
recommendation for a longer transition period, and has changed the 
effective date of revised USML categories to 180 days from the date of 
publication.
    In response to the recommendation of several commenting parties for 
shared licensing authority for items changing export jurisdiction, the 
Department's transition guidance will provide that, for 180 days 
following the publication date of a revised USML category, licenses for 
items moving from the USML to the CCL will be accepted by both DDTC and 
BIS. In addition, DDTC authorizations that pertain wholly to 
transitioned items will expire two years after the effective date of 
the relevant final rule moving the items to the CCL, and licenses that 
have some items remaining on the USML will be valid until expiration 
for all items covered by

[[Page 61751]]

the license at the time it was issued. Applicants should refer to the 
Department of Commerce's companion to this rule, which is published 
elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, for information 
related to BIS licenses during the transition period.
    Two commenting parties stated that dual jurisdiction/licensing will 
create a heavy compliance burden for USML end-item manufacturers with 
international supply chains, as each of the export authorities has 
different compliance obligations. The commenting parties also stated 
that it will create confusion as foreign parties may be party to a USML 
technical assistance agreement and receive items for the project under 
a Department of Commerce license or Strategic Trade Authorization (STA) 
license exception. The Department acknowledges this complexity, but 
notes that ECR will not create a new context in this regard, as current 
projects routinely require both defense articles and commercial items 
for completion. Dual compliance requirements already exist and the 
Department believes the benefits derived from changes implemented under 
ECR outweigh these concerns.
    One commenting party requested clarification of whether sending to 
a foreign supplier technical data on a USML end-item to allow 
installation of a 600 series component is both a USML technical data 
export and CCL installation technology export, creating dual licensing 
for most foreign sourced commodities. If the technical data is directly 
related to a defense article, the technical data will be ITAR 
controlled. If the technical data is for the production, development, 
etc., of a 600 series or CCL item to be installed in a defense article, 
the technical data remains EAR controlled. The jurisdiction of the 
technical data follows the jurisdiction of the related commodity or 
item.
    Five commenting parties recommended that amendments to licenses and 
authorizations that contain transitioning and non-transitioning items 
or solely transitioning items should be allowed during the transition 
period. The Department accepted this recommendation and revised the 
guidance to provide that such submissions will be accepted up until the 
effective date of the relevant revised USML category.
    Three commenting parties recommended allowing temporary import and 
export authorizations to last until expired or returned. As the items 
temporarily imported or exported are to return to their point of 
origin, pursuant to the requirements of the authorizations, there is no 
national security risk in maintaining the original authorizations. The 
Department accepted this recommendation and revised the guidance 
accordingly.
    One commenting party noted that currently approved agreements 
covering dual/third country national employees of the foreign party 
will be affected by the need to obtain deemed export licenses, and that 
two years may not be sufficient time to fulfill this requirement. The 
Department notes that as long as the currently approved agreement has 
been amended to provide authority for the transitioned items in 
accordance with the guidance in this notice, the dual/third country 
national authority would still apply.
    Five commenting parties recommended that existing reexport/
retransfer authorizations should be grandfathered without expiration. 
Foreign parties who purchased transitioned items under authorizations 
that allowed perpetual foreign sales should not have to reauthorize 
those sales and the U.S. Government should not re-review the 
authorizations. The Department accepted this recommendation and revised 
the guidance accordingly. The three scenarios for which this applies 
are: (1) Reexport/retransfer authority granted through a program status 
DSP-5; (2) the sales territory of a manufacturing license or warehouse 
and distribution agreement if the agreement continues to be the export 
authority; and (3) any stand-alone reexport/retransfer authorization 
received pursuant to ITAR Sec.  123.9(c).
    Two commenting parties recommended requiring U.S. exporters to 
identify ECCNs and prior USML classifications on export documentation 
for two years following the effective date of transitioned items and 
mandate prompt responses to requests for ECCNs for legacy items. The 
Department accepted this recommendation in part. The Department has 
revised ITAR Sec.  123.9(b) to require identification of the license or 
other approval to the foreign party.
    Seven commenting parties recommended that previously issued 
commodity jurisdiction (CJ) determinations designating items as not 
subject to the export jurisdiction of the Department remain valid. This 
will preserve EAR99 status for items previously so designated and would 
relieve exporters who have obtained CJ determinations from having to 
reclassify items. The Department accepted this recommendation and 
revised the guidance accordingly.
    One commenting party inquired what Automated Export System (AES) 
entry would be required for items that have transitioned to control 
under the CCL but are to be exported under a legacy DDTC authorization. 
The AES entry for such exports will remain the same as is required now 
for a DDTC authorization.
    In response to one commenting party's inquiry on what effect the 
transition will have on recordkeeping requirements, the Department 
notes records must be maintained for five years following the last 
transaction, regardless of jurisdiction.
    After consideration of the comments received, and in furtherance of 
the principles of ECR, the Department has decided to institute a new 
permanent licensing procedure that will allow DDTC licensing for 
commodities, software, and technical data subject to the EAR, provided 
those commodities, software, and technical data are to be used in or 
with defense articles controlled on the USML and are described in the 
purchase documentation submitted with the application. This procedure 
is to be effected by the exporter by use of ``(x) paragraph,'' added to 
USML Categories VIII and XIX in this rule, and to be added to other 
USML categories as they are revised. The Department will begin 
accepting licenses citing a (x) paragraph entry following the effective 
date of the relevant revised USML category. The President has provided 
for this delegation of authority from the Secretary of Commerce to the 
Secretary of State, and Executive Order 13222 has been amended 
accordingly (see 78 FR 16129). The Department has revised various 
sections of, and added certain sections to, the ITAR to accommodate 
this delegation of authority: ITAR Sec.  120.5 to add a new paragraph 
(b) to address the delegation; the addition of ITAR Sec.  120.42 to 
provide a definition of ``subject to the EAR''; ITAR Sec.  123.1 to 
provide guidance on how to use the (x) paragraph; and ITAR Sec.  
123.9(b) to identify additional requirements when using the (x) 
paragraph. The Department of Commerce has the authority to review 
``pre-positioned'' license applications during the 180-day transition 
period for items transitioning to EAR jurisdiction. This means the 
Department of Commerce will be able to review and process license 
applications for transitioning items. However, these Department of 
Commerce licenses would not be issued until the effective date of the 
relevant final rule moving items from the USML to the CCL. Further 
guidance is provided in the Department of Commerce's companion to this 
rule (see ``Revision to the Export

[[Page 61752]]

Administration Regulations: Initial Implementation of Export Control 
Reform,'' elsewhere in this edition of the Federal Register).

Transition Plan

Transition Period--General Policy
    There will generally be a 180-day transition period between the 
publication of the final rule for each revised U.S. Munitions List 
(USML) category and its effective date. This period will allow U.S. 
license holders time to review their current authorizations and prepare 
for the transition to the new ECCNs. A license application or other 
request for authorization containing only transitioning items or both 
USML and transitioning items will be accepted by the Department up 
until the effective date of the relevant revised USML category. A 
license or authorization issued by the Department will be effective for 
up to two years from the effective date of the revised USML category if 
all the items listed on the license or authorization have transitioned 
to the export jurisdiction of the Department of Commerce. A license or 
authorization issued by the Department will be valid until its 
expiration if some of the items listed on the license or authorization 
have transitioned to the export jurisdiction of the Department of 
Commerce. During this period, BIS will accept license applications for 
items moving from the USML to the CCL, but it will not issue licenses 
for such items until the applicable effective date.
DSP-5 Licenses
    Approvals issued for licenses submitted prior to the effective date 
of the relevant revised USML category that do not include any items 
that will remain on the USML will remain valid until expired, returned 
by the license holder, or for a period of two years from the effective 
date of the final rule, whichever occurs first, unless otherwise 
revoked, suspended, or terminated. Licenses containing both 
transitioning and non-transitioning items (mixed authorizations) will 
remain valid until expired or returned by the license holder, unless 
otherwise revoked, suspended, or terminated. Any limitation, proviso, 
or other requirement imposed on the DDTC authorization will remain in 
effect if the DDTC authorization is relied upon for export. License 
amendment requests (DSP-6) received by DDTC during the transition 
period amending licenses affected by the transition will be adjudicated 
on a case-by-case basis up until the effective date of the relevant 
rule.
DSP-61 and DSP-73 Licenses
    All temporary licenses that are issued in the period prior to the 
effective date of the final rule for each revised USML category will 
remain valid until expired or returned by the license holder, unless 
otherwise revoked, suspended, or terminated. Any limitation, proviso, 
or other requirement imposed on the DDTC authorization will remain in 
effect if the DDTC authorization is relied upon for export. License 
amendment requests (DSP-62 and DSP-74) received by DDTC during the 
transition period amending licenses affected by the transition will be 
adjudicated on a case-by-case basis until the effective date of the 
relevant rule.
License Applications Received After the Transition Period
    All license applications, including amendments, received after the 
effective date for items that have transitioned to the CCL that are not 
identified in a (x) paragraph entry will be Returned Without Action 
with instructions to contact the Department of Commerce.
Technical Assistance Agreements, Manufacturing License Agreements, 
Warehouse and Distribution Agreements, and Related Reporting 
Requirements
    Approvals issued for agreements submitted prior to the effective 
date of the relevant revised USML category that contain transitioning 
and non-transitioning items will remain valid until expired, unless 
they require an amendment, or for a period of two years from the 
effective date of the relevant final rule, whichever occurs first, 
unless otherwise revoked, suspended, or terminated. In order for an 
agreement to remain valid beyond two years, an amendment must be 
submitted to authorize the CCL items using the new (x) paragraph from 
the relevant USML category. Any activity conducted under an agreement 
will remain subject to all limitations, provisos, and other 
requirements stipulated in the agreement.
    Approvals issued for agreements submitted prior to the effective 
date of the relevant revised USML category that contain solely 
transitioning items will remain valid for a period of two years from 
the effective date of the relevant USML category, unless revoked, 
suspended, or terminated. After the two year period ends, any on-going 
activity must be conducted under the appropriate Department of Commerce 
authorization. Agreements and agreement amendments solely for items 
moving to the CCL which are received after the effective date will be 
Returned Without Action with instructions to contact the Department of 
Commerce.
    All reporting requirements for Manufacturing License Agreements 
under ITAR Sec.  124.9(a)(6) and Warehouse and Distribution Agreements 
under ITAR Sec.  124.14(c)(6) must be complied with and such reports 
must be submitted to the Department of State while the agreement is 
relied upon as an export authorization by the exporter.
ITAR Licensing of Items Subject to the EAR
    USML categories will have a new (x) paragraph, to be a permanent 
feature of ITAR licensing. The purpose of this procedure is to allow 
for ITAR licensing for commodities, software, and technical data 
subject to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) provided those 
commodities, software, and technical data are to be used in or with 
defense articles controlled on the USML and are described in the 
purchase documentation submitted with the application.
Commodity Jurisdiction Determinations
    Previously issued commodity jurisdiction (CJ) determinations for 
items deemed to be subject to the EAR shall remain valid. Previously 
issued CJ determinations for items deemed to be USML but that are 
subsequently transitioning to the CCL pursuant to a published final 
rule will be superseded by the newly revised lists. Exporters are 
encouraged to review each revised USML category along with its 
companion CCL category to determine whether the items subject to a CJ 
have transitioned to the jurisdiction of the Department of Commerce. 
These CJs are limited to the specific commodity identified in the final 
determination letter. Consistent with the recordkeeping requirements of 
the ITAR and the EAR, licensees and foreign persons subject to licenses 
must maintain records reflecting their assessments of the proper 
regulatory jurisdiction over their items. License holders unable to 
ascertain the proper jurisdiction of their items may request a CJ 
determination from DDTC through the established procedure.
    License holders who are certain their items have transitioned to 
the CCL are encouraged to review the appropriate ECCN to determine the 
classification of their item. License holders who are unsure of the 
proper ECCN designation may submit a Commodity Classification Automated 
Tracking System request

[[Page 61753]]

(CCATS) to the Department of Commerce. See 15 CFR 748.3.
    As described in EAR Sec.  748.3(b)(3), parties making 
classification self-determinations or submitting CCATS requests are 
reminded that such determinations may not be relied upon or cited as 
evidence that the U.S. Government has determined that the item is not 
subject to the ITAR. As described in ITAR Sec.  120.5, an item that is 
described on the USML is ITAR controlled regardless of whether it also 
within the scope of an ECCN or referred to in a CCATS.
Reexport/Retransfer of USML Items That Have Transitioned to the CCL
    Following the effective date of transition, foreign persons (i.e., 
end-users, foreign consignees, and foreign intermediate consignees) who 
receive, via a Department of State authorization, an item that they are 
certain has transitioned to the CCL (e.g., confirmed in writing by 
manufacturer or supplier), should treat the item as such and submit 
requests for post-transition reexports or retransfers outside the scope 
of the original ITAR authorization to the Department of Commerce, as 
may be required by the EAR.
    If reexport or retransfer was previously authorized under a DDTC 
authorization, then that reexport or retransfer authority remains 
valid. The three scenarios for which this applies are: (1) Reexport/
retransfer authority granted through a program status DSP-5; (2) the 
sales/distribution territory of a manufacturing license or warehouse 
and distribution agreement if the agreement continues to provide the 
export authority; or (3) any stand-alone reexport/retransfer 
authorization received pursuant to ITAR Sec.  123.9.
    Foreign persons or U.S. persons abroad that have USML items in 
their inventory at the effective date of transition should review both 
the USML and the CCL to determine the proper jurisdiction. If the item 
is controlled by the Department of Commerce, any reexport or retransfer 
must comply with the requirements of the EAR. If doubt exists on 
jurisdiction of the items, the foreign person should contact the 
original exporter or manufacturer.
Regulatory Oversight Responsibilities
    For those items transitioning from the USML to the CCL, the 
Department of Commerce will exercise regulatory oversight, as of the 
effective date, for the purposes of licensing and enforcement of 
exports from the United States where no Department of State 
authorization is being used. The Department of State will continue to 
exercise regulatory oversight concerning all Department of State 
licenses, agreements, and other authorizations, including those where 
exporters, temporary importers, manufacturers, and brokers continue to 
use previously issued Department of State licenses and agreements, 
until the activity is covered by a Department of Commerce 
authorization.
    License holders may decide to apply for and use Department of 
Commerce authorizations for export of the newly transitioned CCL items 
rather than continue to use previously issued Department of State 
authorizations. In such cases, license holders must return the 
Department of State licenses in accordance with ITAR Sec.  123.22 after 
they have obtained the required Department of Commerce authorizations.
Violations and Voluntary Disclosures of Possible Violations
    Exporters, temporary importers, manufacturers, and brokers are 
cautioned to closely monitor ITAR and EAR compliance concerning 
Department of State licenses and agreements for items transitioning 
from the USML to the CCL.
    On the effective date of each rule that adds an item to the CCL 
that was previously subject to the ITAR, that item will be subject to 
the EAR. Approvals issued by DDTC for license applications and other 
authorization requests may continue to be used as described above by 
exporters, temporary importers, manufacturers, and brokers. The 
violation of a previously issued DDTC authorization (including any 
condition of a DDTC authorization) that is continued to be used as 
described above is a violation of the ITAR.
    With respect to a transitioned item, persons who discover a 
possible violation of the ITAR, the EAR, or any license or 
authorization issued thereunder, are strongly encouraged to disclose 
this violation to DDTC, BIS, or both offices, as appropriate, pursuant 
to established procedures for submitting voluntary disclosures.
    License holders and foreign persons must obtain Department of State 
authorization before disposing, reselling, transshipping, or otherwise 
transferring any item in their possession that remains on the USML.
Registration
    With few exceptions, manufacturers, exporters, and brokers are 
required to register with the Department of State if their activities 
involve USML defense articles or defense services.
    Registered manufacturers, exporters, temporary importers, defense 
service providers and brokers (``registrants'') are reminded of the 
requirement to notify DDTC in writing when they are no longer in the 
business of manufacturing, exporting, or brokering USML defense 
articles or defense services. Registrants who determine that all of 
their activities involve articles or services that will transition from 
the USML to the CCL and therefore are no longer required to register 
with the Department of State must provide such written notification to 
the Department of State. Instructions for providing such notification 
are accessible on the DDTC Web site (www.pmddtc.state.gov). Note that 
DDTC will not cancel or revoke those registrations, but will allow the 
registrations to expire. Registrants who determine that all of their 
activities will be subject to Department of Commerce jurisdiction as a 
result of the transition from the USML to the CCL must nevertheless 
maintain registration with the Department of State until the effective 
date of the applicable final rule transitioning the registrant's items 
to the CCL.
    Registrants who determine they will no longer be required to 
register with the Department of State after the effective date of the 
final rule transitioning the registrant's items to the CCL, and who 
have registration renewal dates that occur after publication of the 
final rule but before its effective date, may request to have their 
registration expiration date extended to the effective date of 
transition and not be charged a registration fee. In those cases, 
registrants must insert the following statement as the first paragraph 
in the written notification previously mentioned: ``(insert company 
name) requests DDTC extend our registration expiration date to the 
effective date of transition to CCL for USML Category (insert Category 
number) items and waive the registration fee. (insert company name) 
certifies that no changes in our eligibility from what is represented 
in our previously submitted DS-2032 Statement of Registration has 
occurred (otherwise specify change in eligibility status).'' If a 
registrant subsequently determines that its registration with the 
Department of State must instead be renewed, the registration renewal 
fee will be recalculated to include any Department of State licenses 
the registrant received during the period when the registration 
expiration date was extended.
    Registrants that avail themselves of the opportunity to continue 
using previously issued Department of State authorizations (licenses 
and agreements) for items that have transitioned to the CCL must 
maintain current registration

properties that uniquely characterize it. The fit of a commodity is 
defined by its ability to physically interface or connect with or 
become an integral part of another commodity. The function of a 
commodity is the action or actions it is designed to perform. 
Performance capability is the measure of a commodity's effectiveness to 
perform a designated function in a given environment (e.g., measured in 
terms of speed, durability, reliability, pressure, accuracy, 
efficiency). For software, the form means the design, logic flow, and 
algorithms. The fit is defined by its ability to interface or connect 
with a defense article. The function means the action or actions the 
software performs directly related to a defense article or as a 
standalone application. Performance capability means the measure of the 
software's effectiveness to perform a designated function.'' After 
``Note 4 to paragraph (b)(3),'' the following new note is added: ``Note 
5 to paragraph (b)(3): With respect to a commodity, ``equivalent'' 
means its form has been modified solely for fit purposes.''
