Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: 
Continued 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 July 8, 2013 (78 FR 40922). That 
rule amended the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to 
revise four U.S. Munitions List (USML) categories and provide new and 
revised definitions.

DATES: This rule is effective January 6, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Sarah J. Heidema, Deputy Director, 
Office of Defense Trade Controls Policy, Department of State, telephone 
(202) 663-2809; email DDTCResponseTeam@state.gov. ATTN: Regulatory 
Change, Corrections to Second ECR Final Rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department provides the following 
corrections to the rule, ``Amendment to the International Traffic in 
Arms Regulations: Continued Implementation of Export Control Reform,'' 
published on July 8, 2013 and effective on January 6, 2014 (78 FR 
40922). 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 and provide new 
and revised definitions.
    The changes in this rule are meant to clarify the regulation by 
correcting punctuation, providing exact effective dates for the 
paragraphs regarding developmental articles, and providing a revised 
Supplement No. 1 to part 126, which takes into account the changes made 
to the USML categories revised in the rule published on July 8, 2013.
    Pursuant to ECR, the Department of Commerce has been publishing 
revisions to the Export Administration Regulations, including various 
revisions to the Commerce Control List (CCL). 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: Military Vehicles; Vessels of War; 
Submersible Vessels, Oceanographic Equipment; Related Items; and 
Auxiliary and Miscellaneous Items That the President Determines No 
Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List,'' 78 FR 
40892) is also corrected in this edition of the Federal Register.
    The following corrections are made to the rule, ``Amendment to the 
International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Continued Implementation of 
Export Control Reform,'' published on July 8, 2013:

0
1. On page 40924, in the third column, in the second from last 
paragraph, after ``introduction,'' add the following: ``The Department 
also notes that paragraph (d)(1) controls ablative materials, articles 
the subject of unrevised USML Category IV(f). The Department reiterates 
the principle provided in the first rule implementing Export Control 
Reform (see 78 FR 22740): where there is overlap in control regarding a 
particular article, the control of the revised USML category supersedes 
that of the unrevised USML category.''

  etc. Display or identification correlation refers to the combination of target detections from multiple
  sources for assignment of common target track designation.
Note 4: Software source code beyond that source code required for basic operation, maintenance, and training for
  programs, systems, and/or subsystems is not eligible for use of the UK or AS Treaty exemptions, unless such
  export is pursuant to a written solicitation or contract issued or awarded by the U.S. Department of Defense

  list, particularly for the category in which the platform is controlled.
The excluded defense articles include constructions of metallic or non-metallic materials or combinations
  thereof specially designed to provide protection for military systems. The phrase ``suitable for military
  use'' applies to any articles or materials which have been tested to level IIIA or above IAW NIJ standard

  fulfillment of the contract, unless for use by a Canadian or United States Government entity that requires in
  writing the technical data be maintained. The U.S. exporter must be provided written certification that the
  technical data is being retained or destroyed; and
(5) Include a clause requiring that all documentation created from U.S. origin technical data contain the
  statement that, ``This document contains technical data, the use of which is restricted by the U.S. Arms
  Export Control Act. This data has been provided in accordance with, and is subject to, the limitations
  specified in Sec.   126.5 of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). By accepting this data, the
  consignee agrees to honor the requirements of the ITAR.''

  use of the product; the name and address of all the Canadian contractors and subcontractors.
Note 15: This exclusion does not apply to demining equipment in support of the clearance of landmines and
  unexploded ordnance for humanitarian purposes.
As used in this exclusion, ``anti-personnel landmine'' means any mine placed under, on, or near the ground or
  other surface area, or delivered by artillery, rocket, mortar, or similar means or dropped from an aircraft
  and which is designed to be detonated or exploded by the presence, proximity, or contact of a person; any
  device or material which is designed, constructed, or adapted to kill or injure and which functions
  unexpectedly when a person disturbs or approaches an apparently harmless object or performs an apparently safe
  act; any manually-emplaced munition or device designed to kill, injure, or damage and which is actuated by
  remote control or automatically after a lapse of time.
Note 16: The cluster munitions that are subject to this exclusion are set forth below:
The Convention on Cluster Munitions, signed December 3, 2008, and entered into force on August 1, 2010, defines
  a ``cluster munition'' as:
A conventional munition that is designed to disperse or release explosive submunitions each weighing less than
  20 kilograms, and includes those explosive submunitions. Under the Convention, a ``cluster munition'' does not
  include the following munitions:
(a) A munition or submunition designed to dispense flares, smoke, pyrotechnics or chaff; or a munition designed
  exclusively for an air defense role;
(b) A munition or submunition designed to produce electrical or electronic effects;
(c) A munition that, in order to avoid indiscriminate area effects and the risks posed by unexploded
  submunitions, has all of the following characteristics:
(1) Each munition contains fewer than ten explosive submunitions;
(2) Each explosive submunition weighs more than four kilograms;
(3) Each explosive submunition is designed to detect and engage a single target object;
(4) Each explosive submunition is equipped with an electronic self-destruction mechanism; and
(5) Each explosive submunition is equipped with an electronic self-deactivating feature.

  munitions, no defense export license for cluster munitions may be issued, and no cluster munitions or cluster
  munitions technology shall be sold or transferred, unless:
(a) The submunitions of the cluster munitions, after arming, do not result in more than 1 percent unexploded
  ordnance across the range of intended operational environments; and
(b) The agreement applicable to the assistance, transfer or sale of such cluster munitions or cluster munitions
  technology specifies that the cluster munitions will only be used against clearly defined military targets and
  will not be used where civilians are known to be present or in areas normally inhabited by civilians.
Note 17: The radar systems described are controlled in USML Category XI(a)(3)(i) through (v). As used in this
  entry, the term ``systems'' includes equipment, devices, software, assemblies, modules, components, practices,
  processes, methods, approaches, schema, frameworks, and models.
*An ``X'' in the chart indicates that the item is excluded from use under the exemption referenced in the top of
  the column. An item excluded in any one row is excluded regardless of whether other rows may contain a
  description that would include the item.
