DEPARTMENT OF STATE

22 CFR Part 126

[Public Notice 8698]
RIN 1400-AD49


Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: 
Changes to Authorized Officials and the UK Defense Trade Treaty 
Exemption; Correction of Errors in Lebanon Policy and Violations; and 
Adoption of Recent Amendments as Final; Correction

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Final rule, correcting amendment.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of State is correcting the inadvertent omission 
of regulatory text in a recent final rule.

DATES: This rule is effective April 17, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. C. Edward Peartree, Director, 
Office of Defense Trade Controls Policy, U.S. Department of State, 
telephone (202) 663-2792, or email DDTCResponseTeam@state.gov. ATTN: 
Correction to 126.17.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 11, 2014, the Department amended 
the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to, among other 
things, update the text of the licensing exemption created pursuant to 
the Treaty Between the Government of the United States of America and 
the Government of the United Kingdom Concerning Defense Trade 
Cooperation, at ITAR Sec.  126.17, so that it is a clearer 
representation of treaty requirements and is also consistent with ITAR 
Sec.  126.16 (the Australia defense trade treaty exemption) (79 FR 
8082). As a result of an error in amendatory instruction, ITAR Sec.  
126.17(o)(2)(i) through (iv) were removed. This amendment restores 
those paragraphs. The Department's regulatory analyses with respect to 
this rule were published at 79 FR 8082, and are hereby incorporated by 
reference.
