Corrections and Clarifications to the Export Administration 
Regulations; Conforming Changes to the EAR Based on Amendments to the 
International Traffic in Arms Regulations

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This final rule makes corrections and clarifications to the 
Export Administration Regulations (EAR) for six final rules published 
in 2013 and early 2014. This final rule also makes other needed 
technical corrections and clarifications to the EAR identified by BIS. 
In addition, this final rule makes two conforming changes to the EAR as 
a result of a final rule published by the Department of State on April 
17, 2014.

DATES: Effective Date: This rule is effective June 5, 2014, except that 
amendatory instructions 44, 45, 47, 50, 51, 52, 53.a, 54, 55, 56.a, 58, 
63, 65, 70, 71, and 72.a to Supplement No. 1 to part 774 are effective 
July 1, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    This final rule makes corrections and clarifications to the Export 
Administration Regulations (EAR) for six final rules published in 2013 
and early 2014. These corrections and clarifications to the EAR are 
necessary in light of earlier amendments to the EAR that are already in 
effect, as well as for a final rule published on January 2, 2014, that 
becomes effective July 1, 2014. The Bureau of Industry and Security 
(BIS) is correcting all six rules in this single final rule to minimize 
the number of correction rules for the public to review and because 
they are similar types of corrections and clarifications. The six final 
rules that are being corrected in this rule are: Export Administration 
Regulations: Editorial Clean-Up of References to Foreign Trade 
Regulations published on January 29, 2014 (79 FR 4613) (referred to 
hereafter as the January 29 rule); Control of Military Training 
Equipment, Energetic Materials, Personal Protective Equipment, 
Shelters, Articles Related to Launch Vehicles, Missiles, Rockets, 
Military Explosives, and Related Items published on January 2, 2014 (79 
FR 264) (referred to hereafter as the January 2 rule); Revisions to the 
Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Unverified List (UVL) 
published on December 19, 2013 (78 FR 76741) (referred to hereafter as 
the December 19 rule); Revisions to the Export Administration 
Regulations (EAR) To Make the Commerce Control List (CCL) Clearer 
published on October 4, 2013 (78 FR 61874) (referred to hereafter as 
the October 4 rule); 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 published on July 8, 2013 (78 FR 40892) 
(referred to hereafter as the July 8 rule); and Revisions to the Export 
Administration Regulations: Initial Implementation of Export Control 
Reform published on April 16, 2013 (78 FR 22660) (referred to hereafter 
as the April 16 rule). This final rule also makes other needed 
technical corrections and clarifications to the EAR that BIS has 
identified.
    The background section of this final rule describes these 
corrections and clarifications in the following order: (A) January 29 
rule corrections and clarifications, (B) January 2 rule corrections and 
clarifications, (C) December 19 rule corrections and clarifications, 
(D) October 4 rule corrections and clarifications, (E) July 8 rule 
corrections and clarifications, (F) April 16 rule corrections and 
clarifications, and (G) other corrections and clarifications to the 
EAR.

(A) January 29 Rule Corrections and ClarificationS

    BIS provides the following corrections to the January 29 rule, 
which became effective upon publication. The corrections included in 
this final rule for the January 29 rule become effective on the date of 
publication of this final rule.
    In Supplement No. 2 to part 736--Administrative Orders, 
Administrative Order Two, under paragraph (a)(3), the January 29 rule 
used the term ``Administration Order,'' but the rule intended to use 
the term ``Administrative Order.'' This final rule removes the term 
``Administration Order'' and adds in its place the correct term 
``Administrative Order.''
    In Sec.  740.15(c)(2)(iv), the January 29 rule revised this 
paragraph to use the phrase ``filed to the Automated Export System 
(AES),'' but the January 29 rule also added in the same sentence the 
phrase ``record is filed'' in that same paragraph after ``(AES)''. This 
final rule deletes the redundant phrase ``record is filed'' after 
``(AES)'' because the phrase ``filed to'' is also used in the same 
paragraph when referring to AES.
    In Sec.  758.1(b)(3), this rule reinserts text that was 
inadvertently removed in the January 29 rule. The reinserted text 
originally was added to paragraph (b)(3) in Revisions to the Export 
Administration Regulations (EAR): Initial Implementation of Export 
Control Reform; Correction published on October 3, 2013 (78 FR 61744). 
This final rule reinserts the phrase ``or otherwise described'' after 
the term ``enumerated'' in paragraph (b)(3).

(B) January 2 Rule Corrections and Clarifications

    BIS provides the following corrections and clarifications to the 
January 2 rule, which becomes effective on July 1, 2014. These include 
correcting typographical errors and inserting omitted quotation marks 
and other text for consistency with other provisions of the Commerce 
Control List (CCL) set forth in Supplement No. 1 to part 774 of the 
EAR. All of the corrections and clarifications in this Section B are to 
Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs).
Typographical Errors and Other Corrections for January 2 Rule
    ECCNs 0A604, 0A614, 0A988, 0B604, 0B614, 1C239, and 1C608. This 
final rule corrects the capitalization in the headings of these seven 
ECCNs, so only the first term of the heading is capitalized. This final 
rule makes this change for consistency with the format used in other 
ECCN headings on the CCL.
    ECCNs 0B604, 0B614, 0D001, 0D604, 0D614, 0E001, 0E604, 0E614, 
1A613, 1B608, 1B613, 1C018, 1C608, 1D018, 1D608, 1D613, 1E001, 1E101, 
1E201, 1E608, 9A604, 9B115, 9B116, 9B604, 9D001, 9D002, 9D003, 9D104, 
9D604, 9E001, 9E101, 9E102, and 9E604. This final rule corrects a 
typographical error in the headings of these ECCNs by adding a period 
at the end of each of these headings. This final rule makes this change 
for consistency with the format used in other ECCN headings on the CCL.
    ECCN 0E614. This final rule corrects a typographical error in ECCN 
0E614 by

[[Page 32613]]

adding a comma between the terms ``repair'' and ``overhaul'' in 
paragraph .a under the ``Items'' heading in the List of Items 
Controlled section.
    ECCNs 0D001, 1A007, 1D018, and 1E001. This final rule adds 
quotation marks to the term ``specially designed'' in these ECCNs for 
consistency with the use of quotation marks for this defined term when 
used on the CCL.
    ECCNs 0A604, 0A614, 1A005, 1A613, 1B608, 1C239, 9A604, 9D001, 
9D002, 9D003, 9D104, 9E001, 9E002, 9E101, and 9E102. This final rule 
adds quotation marks to the term ``subject to the ITAR'' where not 
already present in these ECCNs for consistency with the use of 
quotation marks for this defined term when used on the CCL.
Conforming Changes and Clarifications for January 2 Rule
    In addition, BIS makes changes to the CCL to conform to text 
adopted in the October 4 rule. These changes are not substantive, but 
rather address needed conforming changes for consistency of the CCL and 
the changes included in the October 4 rule.
    ECCNs 0D604, 0E604, 1A613, 1D608, 1E608, 9D604, and 9E604. This 
final rule corrects the heading of these ECCNs to add the phrase ``(see 
List of Items Controlled).'' This correction is needed because each of 
these ECCNs includes a description of ``items'' that are classified 
under the ``Items'' paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section. 
Therefore, these ECCN headings should include the phrase ``(see List of 
Items Controlled)'' at the end of each of these headings.
    ECCN 1A613. This final rule revises the ``items'' paragraph in the 
List of Items Controlled section to add in paragraph (e) a specific 
description of a type of personal protective ``equipment'' ``specially 
designed'' for military applications that are controlled under this 
ECCN, namely atmospheric diving suits ``specially designed'' for rescue 
operations for submarines controlled by the USML or the CCL. The 
general control on protective personnel equipment that was in paragraph 
(e) has been moved to paragraph (f). These changes do not result in new 
controls because such diving suits were within the scope of the general 
control on protective personnel equipment (that is not in paragraph 
(f)). BIS is making this clarifying change in response to questions 
from the public regarding where such diving suits were controlled.
    BIS further intends for this clarification to help resolve any 
misunderstanding that may have resulted from an erroneous statement 
published in the Federal Register on June 7, 2012 in the preamble to a 
proposed rule. (Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations 
(EAR): Control of Personal Protective Equipment, Shelters, and Related 
Items the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the 
United States Munitions List (USML), 77 FR 33688, 33689). That proposed 
rule included the phrase, ``BIS proposed to move anti-gravity suits, 
pressure suits, and atmosphere diving suits, currently controlled in 
the USML under Category X(a)(3), (a)(4), and (a)(5), respectively, to 
ECCN 9A610 in the November 7 proposed rule'' (referring to Revisions to 
the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Control of Aircraft and 
Related Items the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under 
the United States Munitions List (USML) (76 FR 68675, Nov. 7, 2011)). 
BIS's June 7 statement was correct with respect to USML Category 
X(a)(3) and (a)(4), but erroneous with respect to USML Category 
X(a)(5), because articles controlled under USML Category X(a)(5) were 
not proposed to move to ECCN 9A610 in the November 7 rule.
    BIS has also received questions regarding how anti-gravity suits 
(``G-suits'') and pressure suits capable of operating at altitudes 
higher than 55,000 feet above sea level are classified on the CCL. 
Because these suits are already classified under ECCN 9A610 under 
``items'' paragraphs (g), which relates to suits used in aircraft, they 
are not classified under ECCN 1A613 and no further changes to the CCL 
are necessary. To make this clearer to the public, this final rule also 
adds a new ``Related Controls'' paragraph (3) to ECCN 1A613 to alert 
persons reviewing ECCN 1A613 to also see ECCN 9A610.g for anti-gravity 
suits (``G-suits'') and pressure suits capable of operating at 
altitudes higher than 55,000 feet above sea level.

(C) December 19 Rule Corrections and Clarifications

    BIS provides the following correction to the December 19 rule, 
which became effective on January 21, 2014.
    In Sec.  762.2 (Records to be retained), the December 19 rule 
revised paragraph (b)(13) to reference Sec.  744.15(b). In revising 
this paragraph, BIS inadvertently overwrote text in (b)(13) that was 
added in the April 16 rule that BIS did not intend to remove. This 
final rule corrects this error by making three changes to Sec.  762.2. 
Specifically, this final rule: (1) Reinserts the April 16 rule text 
into paragraph (b)(13); (2) adds a new paragraph (b)(52) for the 
recordkeeping text that was intended to be added to (b)(52) in the 
December 19 rule, as well as making punctuation changes needed because 
of the addition of (b)(52); and (3) adds new paragraph (b)(53) 
described below in Section F (Other corrections and clarifications to 
the EAR).

(D) October 4 Rule Corrections and Clarifications

    BIS provides the following corrections and clarifications to the 
October 4 rule, which became effective in part on October 15, 2013, and 
in part on January 6, 2014. These include correcting typographical 
errors, inserting omitted quotation marks, and redesignating certain 
paragraphs to make those paragraphs easier to identify. In addition, 
this final rule makes corrections and clarifications to the CCL and 
other parts of the EAR to conform to the practices established in the 
October 4 rule, as well as for consistency with other final rules.
Typographical Errors and Other Corrections for October 4 Rule
    ECCNs 1A004, 1A101, 1C111, 2B350, 3E982, 5A002, 6A998, 7D101, 
8E001, and 9A990. This final rule corrects typographical errors in 
these ECCNs, such as adding an ``s'' at the end of the term ``chemical 
warfare agent'' in ECCN 1A004 and removing the word ``which'' in 
``Related Controls'' paragraph (2) of ECCN 1A101 because it is not 
needed.
    ECCNs 1A001, 2A291, 3A001, 5A001, 5B001, and 6A004. This final rule 
adds quotation marks to defined terms, such as ``specially designed,'' 
``components,'' ``accessories,'' and ``attachments'' in these ECCNs for 
consistency with the use of quotation marks established in the October 
4 rule.
    ECCNs 4A003 and 7E002. This final rule corrects the paragraph 
designation used in the ``Related Controls'' paragraphs in ECCN 7E002 
to make these paragraphs easier to identify. This final rule also 
corrects the paragraph designation for ``Note 1'' to ECCN 4A003 to 
refer to this note as ``Note to 4A003'' because pursuant to the October 
4 rule, there is now only one note to the License Requirements section 
of ECCN 4A003.
Conforming Changes and Clarifications for October 4 Rule
    The corrections described in this section are conforming changes to 
the CCL for the text adopted in the October 4 rule. These changes are 
not substantive, but improve consistency of the CCL and the EAR. They 
also include clarifications to address questions BIS has received since 
publishing the October 4 rule. In addition, the

[[Page 32614]]

corrections described below for ECCNs 2B352, 5A980, 6A002 and 9A120 
reinsert text into those ECCNs to ensure consistency with past 
rulemakings.
    In Sec.  738.4(b)(2) (Sample CCL entry), this final rule corrects 
the sample entry to conform to the new CCL entry section headings and 
table headings included in the October 4 rule, such as correcting the 
``License Exceptions'' section heading in the sample CCL entry to 
correctly read as ``List Based License Exceptions (See Part 740 for a 
description of all license exceptions).''
    In Sec.  774.1(b)(3) (Multilateral export control regime references 
. . .), this final rule revises paragraph (b)(3) to add text that was 
intended to be included in that paragraph, but inadvertently was not 
included in the October 4 rule. In addition, to conform to the 
correction made to ECCN 0D001, this final rule also corrects in Sec.  
774.1 the Note to paragraph (b) to provide a reference to the Heading 
Note that is being added to ECCN 0D001 in this final rule.
    ECCNs 0D001, 0E001 and 2B999 and Technical Note to CCL Category 1, 
Product Group C. This final rule corrects these three ECCNs and this 
Technical Note by removing references to fourteen ECCNs in which items 
subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission (NRC) previously were classified. These ECCNs were removed 
from the CCL in the October 4 rule. (With these corrections, the 
January 2 rule's revisions to the headings of ECCNs 0D001 and 0E001, 
which consisted of updating these two headings to specifically exclude 
the ``600 series'' ECCNs added to the CCL in that rule, are no longer 
needed.) In addition to removing these references, this final rule adds 
regulatory text to ECCNs 0D001 and 2B999 to specify that the NRC has 
jurisdiction for certain nuclear related items. As a conforming change 
to the removal of the references to the fourteen ECCNs in ECCN 0D001, 
this final rule adds text to ECCN 0E001 to specify that the Department 
of Energy has export licensing authority for ``technology'' for the 
items subject to export licensing authority of the NRC. Elsewhere, the 
EAR also makes this type of jurisdictional reminder, such as in 
Supplement No. 3 to part 730--Other U.S. Government Departments and 
Agencies with Export Control Responsibilities. As described above, a 
conforming change correction was also made in Sec.  774.1 for the Note 
to paragraph (b) that references ECCNs 0D001 and 0E001.
    ECCN 1A984. This final rule amends the last phrase in the heading 
of ECCN 1A984, ``other pyrotechnic articles having dual military and 
commercial use'' to read ``other pyrotechnic articles (excluding 
shotgun shells) having dual military and commercial use, and ``parts'' 
and ``components'' ``specially designed'' therefor, n.e.s.'' Through 
this amendment, BIS seeks to clarify that it intended for ``parts'' and 
``components'' ``specially designed'' for ``other pyrotechnic articles 
(excluding shotgun shells) having dual military and commercial use'' 
that are not elsewhere specified on the CCL to be classified under ECCN 
1A984. This heading should have been amended in the October 4 rule when 
similar conforming changes and clarifications were made to the EAR. 
These changes do not expand the scope of ECCN 1A984, but serve to 
clarify the ECCN.
    The term ``articles'' is not defined in the EAR. However, 
``articles,'' as used in the EAR, could be interpreted to include 
``parts'' and ``components.'' The October 4 rule made a number of 
changes to the CCL to conform to the new definitions of ``parts'' and 
``components'' that were added to the EAR in the April 16 rule. Before 
making the October 4 rule conforming changes, BIS determined where the 
terms ``parts'' and ``components'' should be added to the CCL to 
preserve the intended scope of each ECCN while conforming to the new 
April 16 rule definitions. In doing so, BIS focused primarily on ECCNs 
in which either ``part'' or ``component'' was already used. Because 
ECCN 1A984 does not use one of those terms, the October 4 rule 
inadvertently did not amend this ECCN at the same time as other similar 
ECCNs. BIS indicated in the October 4 rule that, over time, BIS may 
further refine the use of the terms ``parts'' and ``components'' on the 
CCL (see 78 FR 61878). When BIS reviewed ECCN 1A984, it determined that 
the longstanding intent of this ECCN has been to control ``parts'' and 
``components'' for some of the commodities classified under it. 
Therefore, ``parts'' and ``components'' should have been added to the 
heading of ECCN 1A984 in the October 4 rule. As stated in the October 4 
rule, BIS is not attempting to add additional references to ``parts'' 
and ``components'' in this final rule that would change the scope of 
what ECCN 1A984 controls. The intent identified in this final rule is 
consistent with past BIS interpretation of and licensing under ECCN 
1A984.
    In addition, this final rule adds the phrase ``(excluding shotgun 
shells)'' after the term ``articles'' to clarify the delineation 
between ECCN 1A984 and existing ECCN 0A986.
    Among other things, this edit will make clear that ``items'' such 
as ``specially designed'' rubber finned projectiles for 38/40 mm rounds 
are included in ECCN 1A984, and that tiny rubber balls incorporated by 
manufacturers into ``items,'' but used for multiple other purposes that 
would meet one of the paragraph (b) ``releases'' in the definition of 
``specially designed'' set forth in Sec.  772.1 of the EAR, are not 
within the scope of ECCN 1A984.
    ECCNs 2B352 and 9A120. This final rule corrects ECCN 2B352 by 
revising paragraph (h) to reinsert text that was inadvertently removed 
in the October 4 rule when paragraph (h) was revised. This final rule 
also corrects the introductory text of ``Items'' paragraph (i) in ECCN 
2B352, which was the original intent of the October 4 rule. Paragraph 
(i) was not revised correctly because the October 4 rule did not take 
into account a June 5, 2013, final rule (78 FR 33698), which 
redesignated paragraphs (g) and (h) as paragraphs (h) and (i), 
respectively. This final rule also corrects for the same reason the 
``Technical Notes'' paragraph 2 at the end of the ``Items'' paragraph 
that references ECCN 2B352.h, which should be 2B352.i. ECCN 9A120 is 
also being corrected with this final rule to remove the reference to 
ECCN 2B352.h and add in its place 2B352.i.
    ECCN 5A980. This final rule corrects the heading in ECCN 5A980 to 
remove the reference to ECCN 5A001.i, and adds in its place 5A001.f.1. 
Based on a June 20, 2013, final rule (78 FR 37389), paragraph .i of 
ECCN 5A001 is reserved, and the correct reference is therefore 
5A001.f.1.
    ECCNs 1E001, 5B001, and 6A002. This final rule corrects the STA 
paragraphs in the ``Special Conditions for STA'' sections of ECCNs 
1E001, 5B001 and 6A002 to remove the reference to destinations in Sec.  
740.20(c)(2) and replace that with the intended reference to 
destinations in Country Group A:6 (See Supplement No. 1 to part 740 of 
the EAR). In the October 4 rule, this same change was made to other 
ECCNs that included STA paragraphs, but inadvertently was not 
implemented for these three ECCNs. In addition, this final rule 
corrects the STA paragraph in the ``Special Conditions for STA'' 
section of ECCN 6A002 to restore text that was inadvertently deleted in 
the October 4 rule to accurately reflect which ECCN 6A002 commodities 
are excluded from License Exception STA. The October 4 rule change to 
ECCN 6A002's STA paragraph was intended to be limited to updating the 
reference from (c)(2) to Country Group A:6, as well as moving the STA 
paragraph under the new ``Special Conditions for STA'' section heading. 
However, the

[[Page 32615]]

October 4 rule inadvertently removed some of the exclusion text under 
ECCN 6A002. This final rule adds those additional ``Items'' paragraph 
references back into the STA paragraph in 6A002, so it now correctly 
states that License Exception STA may not be used to ship to any of the 
destinations listed in Country Group A:6 (See Supplement No. 1 to part 
740 of the EAR) any commodity classified under ECCN 6A002 paragraphs: 
6A002.a.1.a, a.1.b or a.1.c; 6A002.a.3.c, a.3.d, a.3.e, or a.3.f; or 
6A002.b.
    ECCNs 6B995 and 9B991. This final rule revises the headings of 
ECCNs 6B995 and 9B991 to make the intent of the headings clearer and to 
use a structure that is more consistent with the rest of the CCL. The 
October 4 rule revised both of these headings, but questions received 
from the public since publication suggested that the changes made for 
clarity did not achieve the intended objective. The scope and substance 
of the two ECCNs are not changed, as this correction is limited to 
revising the two headings to clarify what is classified under those two 
ECCNs.
    ECCN 8A992. The October 4 rule removed ECCN 8A918 and moved these 
commodities to ECCN 8A992.l and .m, respectively, because they are not 
inherently military items and warrant only an AT control. To conform to 
the removal of ECCN 8A918, this final rule corrects ECCN 8A992 to 
remove an inadvertently retained UN control paragraph in the License 
Requirement section.
    ECCN 9A619. This final rule removes the term ``aircraft'' before 
the term ``commodities'' in ECCN 9A619.y introductory text because ECCN 
9A619 also controls commodities for gas turbine engines, such as those 
for aircraft, ship, and land vehicles. Inadvertent use of the term 
``aircraft'' was inconsistent with the rest of ECCN 9A619. This is not 
a substantive change to the scope of the ECCN 9A619, but rather this is 
a change made for consistency with the scope of ECCN 9A619 and the 
original intent of the commodities to be classified under this ECCN.
    ECCNs 9B115, 9B116, and 9E101. The October 4 rule revised the 
headings of ECCNs 9B115 and 9B116 to indicate that the ECCNs identified 
in these headings include ECCNs 9A103 to 9A109, among others. However, 
the ``Related Controls'' paragraphs in ECCNs 9B115 and 9B116, instead 
of referencing ECCNs 9A103 to 9A109 incorrectly includes ECCNs 9A104 to 
9A109. Similarly, the October 4 rule revised the heading of ECCN 9E101 
reference ECCNs 9A103 to 9A111, among others, but the ``Related 
Controls'' paragraph of ECCN 9E101 references 9A104 to 9A111. This 
final rule removes 9A104 and adds 9A103 in its place in the ``Related 
Controls'' paragraphs of ECCNs 9B115, 9B116 and 9E101.
    ECCNs 9B610 and 9B619. The October 4 rule revised the ``Related 
Controls'' paragraphs of ECCNs 9B610 and 9B619 to add in the ``Related 
Controls'' section ``equipment'' controlled under USML Category 
VIII(h)(1) and USML Category XIX(f)(1), respectively. This text is 
identical to the control text in USML Category VIII(h)(1) and USML 
Category XIX(f)(1). The ITAR-controlled ``equipment'' referred to in 
the ``Related Controls'' paragraphs does not include the items 
described in ECCNs 9B610 or 9B619. This final rule amends these two 
``Related Controls'' paragraphs to make this point more clear.
    Lastly, under ECCN 9B610, this final rule adds quotation marks 
around the defined terms, ``parts,'' ``components,'' ``accessories,'' 
``attachments,'' and ``specially designed'' in the ``Related Controls'' 
paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section of 9B610 to make the 
ECCN consistent with the quotation marks practice described in the 
April 16 rule and with other references to these defined terms on the 
CCL. In addition, this final rule adds a second sentence to the 
``Related Controls'' paragraph to also reference USML Category 
VIII(h)(2)-(26), in addition to USML Category VIII(h)(1).

(E) July 8 Rule Corrections and Clarifications

    BIS provides the following corrections and clarifications to the 
July 8 rule, which became effective on January 6, 2014. These include 
correcting typographical errors, inserting omitted quotation marks, and 
adding text for consistency with other final rules and the structure of 
the CCL.
Typographical Errors and Other Corrections for July 8 Rule
    ECCNs 0A606, 0A617, 0E018, and 8A609. This final rule corrects 
typographical errors in these ECCNs, such as deleting an extra 
semicolon in ``Items'' paragraph y.8 in the List of Items Controlled 
section of ECCN 8A609 and adding a period that was mistakenly not 
included in ECCN 0E018.
    ECCNs 0A606, 0A617, 8A018, and 8A620. This final rule adds 
quotation marks to certain uses of defined terms, such as ``specially 
designed,'' ``components,'' and ``parts'' in these ECCNs for 
consistency with the use of quotation marks practice identified in the 
July 8 rule.
    ECCN 0A617. This final rule adds the ``Related Definitions'' 
paragraph after the ``Related Controls'' paragraph in ECCN 0A617. The 
``Related Definitions'' paragraph does not define any terms in this 
ECCN because it is designated as ``N/A.'' However, for the sake of 
consistency with the other ECCNs on the CCL that include a ``List of 
Items Controlled'' section, the ``Related Definitions'' paragraph 
should have also been included in ECCN 0A617.
    ECCNs 0A918 and 8C609. This final rule adds the phrase ``(see List 
of Items Controlled)'' to the end of the headings for ECCNs 0A918 and 
8C609. Both ECCNs include a description of the ``Items'' controlled in 
the List of Items Controlled section. For the sake of consistency with 
the structure used for other ECCNs on the CCL, the phrase ``(see List 
of Items Controlled)'' should have been included in these ECCNs.

(F) April 16 Rule Corrections and Clarifications

    BIS provides the following corrections and clarifications to the 
April 16 rule, which became effective on October 15, 2013. These 
include correcting typographical errors, inserting omitted quotation 
marks and redesignating certain paragraphs to make those paragraphs 
easier to identify. In addition, this final rule makes corrections and 
clarifications to the CCL and other parts of the EAR to conform to the 
amendments made in the April 16 rule, as well as for consistency with 
other final rules.
Typographical Errors and Other Corrections for April 16 Rule
    In Supplement No. 1 to Part 748, Block 24; Sec.  772.1, ``specially 
designed'' definition, Note 1 to paragraph (a)(1); and Supplement No. 4 
to Part 774--Commerce Control List Order of Review, paragraph (a)(5), 
this final rule corrects typographical errors in these EAR references. 
These changes include adding a space between two words in Supplement 
No. 1 to Part 748, Block 24, removing an errant closed parenthesis at 
the end of the same sentence and removing an extra ``a'' in Note 1 to 
paragraph (a)(1) of ``specially designed'' because it is not needed.
    In Supplement No. 1 to part 736, under General Order No. 5, this 
final rule corrects the paragraph designations used in the General 
Order No. 5 paragraphs for consistency with the Federal Register 
Drafting Handbook for paragraph designations and to make these 
paragraphs easier to identify. The title General Order No. 5 will be

[[Page 32616]]

preceded by paragraph designation (e), in keeping with the other 
General Orders, and all of the other paragraphs in General Order No. 5 
are redesignated one paragraph level lower. For example, this final 
rule redesignates paragraph (a) as paragraph (e)(1).
    In Sec. Sec.  744.17(d) and 744.21, this final rule makes 
conforming changes consistent with the intent of the April 16 rule. The 
April 16 rule revised Sec. Sec.  744.17(d) and 744.21 to use single 
quotation marks around the term `military end use' and delete the 
hyphen in the term ``end-use.'' However, Sec.  744.17(d) currently 
retains the hyphen and, because the amendatory instruction for Sec.  
744.21 did not include revising the section heading, the single 
quotation marks and deletion of the hyphen were not incorporated into 
the EAR for Sec.  744.21. This final rule corrects the paragraph 
heading of Sec.  744.17(d) and the section heading of Sec.  744.21 to 
add single quotation marks around `military end use' in the latter and 
delete the hyphen in ``end use'' for both, as intended in the April 16 
rule.
Conforming Changes and Clarifications for April 16 Rule and Revisions 
to License Exception GOV
    The corrections described in this section are conforming changes 
and clarifications to the CCL for the amendments included in the April 
16 rule. These changes are not substantive, but rather address needed 
conforming changes for consistency of the CCL and the rest of the EAR, 
as well as clarifications to address questions BIS has received since 
the publication of the April 16 rule.
    In Sec.  736.2(b)(3) (General Prohibition Three--Reexport and 
export from abroad of the foreign-produced direct product of U.S. 
technology and software (Foreign-Produced Direct Product Reexports)), 
this final rule clarifies the country scope of prohibition for ECCN 
0A919 by adding a sentence to the end of paragraph (b)(3)(i) that is 
specific to 0A919 and adopts the same country scope of prohibition as 
the additional country scope of prohibition for ``600 series'' items in 
paragraph (b)(3)(iii). Although 0A919 commodities are not ``600 
series'' items, they are military commodities and should have the same 
country scope prohibitions as ``600 series'' items under the direct 
product rule. Lastly, as a clarification for paragraph (b)(3)(i), this 
final rule adds the phrase ``or export from abroad'' after the term 
``reexport'' for consistency with paragraph (b)(3)(iii).
    In Sec.  740.2(a)(13)(vi) (Restrictions on all license exceptions), 
this final rule revises and simplifies paragraph (a)(13)(vi), which is 
the paragraph for the general restrictions on the use of license 
exceptions for ``600 series'' items that refers to the eligibility of 
License Exception STA for ``600 series'' items. The final rule revises 
the introductory text under paragraph (a)(13)(vi) to specify that 
License Exception STA under Sec.  740.20(c)(1) of the EAR is available 
to overcome the general restrictions on the use of license exceptions 
for ``600 series'' items, provided all of the applicable terms and 
conditions, including those specific to the ``600 series'' are met. 
This amendment does not change the requirements for or limitations on 
the use of License Exception STA for ``600 series'' items. 
Specifically, this final rule simplifies the reference to License 
Exception STA by deleting paragraphs (a)(13)(vi)(A), (B), (C) and (D) 
and revises the introductory text to conform to references to the other 
license exceptions that are eligible for ``600 series'' items as 
specified under paragraph (a)(13). BIS makes this change in this final 
rule to avoid restating the same requirements in different sections of 
the EAR. The change is also necessary to reduce the danger that someone 
may mistakenly believe that the License Exception STA paragraphs in 
(a)(13)(vi)(A), (B), (C) and (D) contain a complete list of the 
applicable terms and conditions of License Exception STA. In addition, 
this final rule revises the last sentence in the introductory text of 
paragraph (a)(13) for clarity, but does not change the meaning of 
paragraph (a)(13).
    In Sec.  740.10 (License Exception Servicing and replacement of 
parts and equipment (RPL)), this final rule removes the term ``U.S. 
origin'' modifying the terms ``parts, components, accessories, or 
attachments,'' ``commodity or software'' and ``equipment.'' This final 
rule also removes the term ``U.S. origin'' and replaces it with the 
phrase ``subject to the EAR'' with, at times, the citation ``(see Sec.  
734.2(a) of the EAR).'' This final rule also removes the term ``U.S. 
origin'' in paragraphs (a)(2)(ii), (a)(4)(i), (b)(1), and (b)(3) of 
License Exception RPL to better conform to the corresponding ITAR 
exemption under Sec.  123.4(a)(1)(22 CFR 123), where the term ``U.S. 
origin'' is not used. The April 16 rule stated on page 78 FR 22669 that 
``a general principle underlying the incorporation of the `600 series' 
into the EAR is that, because items subject to the EAR are less 
militarily significant than those subject to the ITAR, EAR exceptions 
should not be more restrictive than comparable ITAR exemptions.'' The 
use of the term ``U.S. origin'' in License Exception RPL is another 
example where an EAR license exception is more restrictive than the 
corresponding ITAR exemption and therefore, the term ``U.S. origin'' 
should have been removed from License Exception RPL consistent with the 
other changes made in the April 16 rule to other EAR license 
exceptions. BIS became aware of this needed correction based on 
questions received from the public after the April 16 rule became 
effective on October 15, 2013. In addition, because the scope of the 
EAR extends beyond U.S. origin items, such as to foreign origin items 
that are ``subject to the EAR,'' License Exception RPL under paragraphs 
(a) and (b) should also be available for those foreign origin items 
that are ``subject to the EAR'' in addition to U.S. origin items that 
are subject to the EAR. These corrections will preserve the intended 
scope of License Exception RPL and also better correspond to the ITAR 
exemption under Sec.  123.4(a)(1) and may result in a slight reduction 
in the number of license applications received by BIS.
    In Sec.  740.11(c), this final rule revises License Exception GOV 
to allow items subject to the EAR to be exported, reexported, or 
transferred (in-country) to agencies of the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization (NATO) in accordance with the terms and conditions of that 
license exception. Thus, NATO agencies will be treated like cooperating 
governments in that provision of GOV. Under new paragraph (c)(2)(ii), 
License Exception GOV will be available for the official use of a 
cooperating government's military end user, for a cooperating 
government's military end use, or for a NATO agency. Unlike paragraph 
(c)(2)(i), new paragraph (c)(2)(ii) has no territorial restriction on 
where the items may be used. These revisions will enable the United 
States to improve interoperability with NATO and other close allies. 
Lastly, as a conforming change to the capitalization of section 
headings in the EAR, this final rule revises the section heading for 
740.11 to make all terms used in the section heading lower case, except 
for the first term used in the section and proper nouns used in the 
section heading.
    In Sec. Sec.  740.12(a), 740.13(d)(1), and 740.15(c)(1) and (c)(2), 
this final rule redesignates the footnotes in part 740 as a conforming 
change to the April 16 rule revisions to Sec.  740.9 that included the 
removal of footnote 1 to paragraph (b)(1)(iv) in that section. The 
April 16 rule did not redesignate the other footnotes used in part 740, 
so there is no longer a footnote 1 to part 740. To redesignate the 
footnotes in part 740, so

[[Page 32617]]

the footnotes begin with footnote 1, the final rule redesignates 
footnote 2 to Sec.  740.12(a) as footnote 1; footnote 3 to Sec.  
740.13(d)(1) as footnote 2; and footnotes 4 and 5 to Sec.  740.15(c)(1) 
and (c)(2) as footnotes 3 and 4, respectively.
    In Sec.  740.20 (License Exception Strategic Trade Authorization 
(STA)), this final rule makes six clarifications to License Exception 
STA. The first and second are the clarification being made to paragraph 
(b)(3)(ii)(B) and a corresponding change to paragraph (d)(2)(vii)(B), 
the third and fourth are the clarification being made to paragraph 
(b)(3)(ii)(C) and a corresponding change to paragraph (d)(2)(vi)(C), 
the fifth is a conforming change in Note to paragraph (c)(1) for text 
used in other parts of License Exception STA, and the sixth is a 
clarification in the form of one additional sentence that this final 
rule adds to further remind exporters, reexporters, and transferors of 
the requirement to obtain a prior consignee statement consistent with 
the requirement of paragraph (d)(2) (Prior Consignee Statement) and the 
addition of a new paragraph to the prior consignee statement. These 
corrections and conforming changes are described below.
    In Sec.  740.20, under paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(B) and (d)(2)(vii)(B) 
(which was formerly designated as paragraph (d)(2)(vi)(B)), this final 
rule revises paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(B) and (d)(2)(vii)(B) to clarify 
what is intended by the phrase ``that will ultimately be used by'' when 
a ``600 series'' item is exported, reexported or transferred (in-
country) to a country in Country Group A:5 that will be subsequently 
sent to the United States for use by a person in the United States. The 
text could be read to mean that ``600 series'' items that are sent to 
the United States must ultimately be used by a U.S. person, which was 
not the intended interpretation. As described in greater detail below, 
in order to clarify the intended meaning, this final rule revises 
paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(B) and (d)(2)(vii)(B) by creating two identical 
paragraphs under each. Those paragraphs' introductory requirements, 
specifying that the items must be for the ``development,'' 
``production,'' operation, installation, maintenance, repair, overhaul, 
or refurbishing of an item in one of the countries listed in Country 
Group A:5 or the United States, are retained from the April 16 rule.
    This final rule moves the remaining requirements of paragraph 
(b)(3)(ii)(B) to new paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(B)(1) and (b)(3)(ii)(B)(2), 
and the remaining requirements of paragraph (d)(2)(vii)(B) to new 
paragraphs (d)(2)(vii)(B)(1) and (d)(2)(vii)(B)(2), respectively. The 
new paragraphs, (b)(3)(ii)(B)(1) and (d)(2)(vii)(B)(1), specify that 
the items must be ultimately used by government agencies in one of the 
countries listed in Country Group A:5 or the United States Government.
    This final rule also adds new paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(B)(2) and 
(d)(2)(vii)(B)(2) to specify that items sent to a person in the United 
States and not for subsequent export under Sec.  740.9(b)(1) (License 
Exception TMP for items moving in transit through the United States) 
are also within the scope of paragraph (b)(3)(ii)(B) and 
(d)(2)(vii)(B). The new paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(B)(2) and 
(d)(2)(vii)(B)(2) clarify the requirements for when items will be sent 
to a person in the United States that may or may not be ultimately used 
by a U.S. person. However, any subsequent export of a ``600 series'' 
item from the United States, including after incorporation into another 
item in the United States, must comply with U.S. export control laws. 
This final rule also clarifies in paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(B)(2) and 
(d)(2)(vii)(B)(2) that ``600 series'' items sent to a person in the 
United States must not be for subsequent export under Sec.  740.9(b)(1) 
(License Exception TMP for items moving in transit through the United 
States). This is not a substantive change and is limited to clarifying 
the original intent of License Exception STA for ``600 series'' items 
sent to a person in the United States.
    In Sec.  740.20 under paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(C) and (d)(2)(vii)(C), 
this final rule revises paragraphs (b)(3)(ii)(C) and (d)(2)(vii)(C), 
which prior to this final rule was designated as paragraph 
(d)(2)(vi)(C), to remove the phrase ``the consignee has,'' adds the 
term ``exists'' after the words ``such authorization,'' and to remove 
the term ``provides'' and in its place add the phrase ``has provided.'' 
This change is made to paragraph (b)(3)(ii)(C) to conform to the intent 
of this requirement, which was to confirm that the United States 
Government has otherwise authorized the ultimate end use and the 
consignee confirms the authorization exists. This change is also 
intended to clarify that the license or other approval identifier must 
be sent before the export, reexport or transfer occurs.
    This requirement was not intended to be limited to whether the 
consignee that receives a ``600 series'' item under License Exception 
STA has such authorization itself, but rather whether such an 
authorization exists for the ultimate end-use of the item. In certain 
fact patterns, the consignee may have such authorization, as reflected 
in the April 16 rule. However, for STA consignees that are 
manufacturers earlier in a supply chain, such as an aircraft 
``component'' manufacturer, it is likely that the person that will have 
the authorization described in (b)(3)(ii)(C) is further along the 
chain, such as the aircraft manufacturer or other person selling the 
aircraft. If the consignee earlier in the process can confirm with the 
company later in the supply chain, such as the aircraft manufacturer or 
other person selling the aircraft, that the United States Government 
has otherwise authorized the ultimate end use, that confirmation will 
be sufficient to meet the criteria of paragraph (b)(3)(ii)(C) as 
clarified by this final rule. In the prior consignee statement 
paragraph in (d)(2)(vii)(C), this final rule makes the same 
clarification as a conforming change to the revised paragraph 
(b)(3)(ii)(C).
    In Sec.  740.20 under Note to paragraph (c)(1), this final rule 
corrects the Note to paragraph (c)(1) to make a conforming change by 
adding the phrase ``or other approval'' after the term ``license.'' The 
requirement specified in Note 1 to paragraph (c)(1) can be met under a 
previously approved license or other approval (i.e., DDTC Manufacturing 
License Agreement (MLA), Technical Assistance Agreement (TAA), 
Warehouse Distribution Agreement (WDA), or General Correspondence 
approval (GC)) issued by BIS or DDTC, U.S. Department of State. The 
phrase ``or other approval'' is used in other parts of License 
Exception STA, including in paragraph (c), and this text was also 
intended to be included in the Note to paragraph (c).
    In Sec.  740.20(d)(2) (Prior Consignee Statement), this final rule 
adds one sentence to the introductory text of paragraph (d)(2) as an 
additional reminder that each party using License Exception STA to 
export, reexport or transfer (in-country), including reexporters and 
transferors of items previously received under License Exception STA, 
must obtain a prior consignee statement from its consignee and retain 
the statement required by paragraph (d)(2). Paragraph (d)(2) already 
includes this requirement, but based on questions BIS received 
regarding whether a reexporter or transferor of items previously 
received under License Exception STA must obtain and retain the 
statement required by paragraph (d)(2), BIS determined that adding 
another sentence to the introductory text of this paragraph would be 
helpful. For example, a company exports an item eligible for License 
Exception STA to a consignee located in Germany. The U.S. exporter

[[Page 32618]]

obtained the prior consignee statement from the consignee in Germany 
prior to making the export authorized under License Exception STA, as 
well as meeting the other applicable terms and conditions of License 
Exception STA. The company in Germany decides to reexport the item 
received under License Exception STA to a consignee in France. The 
German company in this scenario must obtain the prior consignee 
statement from the consignee in France prior to using License Exception 
STA, just as the U.S. exporter obtained the prior consignee statement 
before exporting to Germany.
    In addition, this final rule redesignates paragraphs (d)(2)(iv), 
(v), (vi) and (vii), as paragraphs (d)(2)(v), (vi), (vii) and (viii) 
respectively. This final rule redesignates these paragraphs, so a new 
paragraph (d)(2)(iv) can be added for the prior consignee statement. 
This final rule adds a new paragraph (d)(2)(iv) to specify that the 
prior consignee statement must also include a statement that the 
consignee agrees to obtain a prior consignee statement when using 
License Exception STA for any reexport or transfer (in-country) of 
items previously received under License Exception STA. The obligation 
to get a retransfer certification as part of the prior consignee 
statement under License Exception STA is no more of a burden than the 
need to get a retransfer authorization under 22 CFR 123.9 (Country of 
ultimate destination and approval of reexports or retransfers) of the 
ITAR. As a conforming change this final rule revises the last two 
sentences of the introductory text of paragraph (d)(2) to clarify that 
paragraphs (d)(2)(i) through (vi) of this section are required for all 
transactions under License Exception STA. (This includes the new 
paragraph (d)(2)(iv) that is added with this final rule, as well as the 
former paragraphs (d)(2)(iv) and (d)(2)(v) that this rule redesignates 
as paragraph (d)(2)(v) and (vi)). The conforming changes also update 
the reference to the ``600 series'' by specifying that paragraph 
(d)(2)(vii) is required for all transactions in ``600 series'' items 
and paragraph (viii) of this section is required for transactions in 
``600 series'' items if the consignee is not the government of a 
country listed in Country Group A:5 (See Supplement No. 1 to part 740 
of the EAR).
    Lastly, this final rule adds to the end of paragraph (d)(2) a new 
requirement that the prior consignee statement must include the name 
and title of the person signing the document, and the date the document 
is signed. This is a change to the prior consignee statement, although 
based on BIS reviews of prior consignee statements, in many cases 
consignees have already been including such information as part of 
their prior consignee statements. Including such information is a good 
compliance practice and will help to better identify who provided the 
consignee statement and when the statement was provided, so this final 
rule adds these as additional elements to be included in the prior 
consignee statement along with the clarification to the prior consignee 
statement described above.
    BIS recognizes that this rule's clarification to the prior 
consignee statement could have resulted in requiring exporters, 
reexporters and transferors to obtain new consignee statements. To 
avoid making those with existing consignee statements have to obtain 
replacement consignee statements simply to accommodate this rule's 
clarifications, the clarifications to the prior consignee statement 
will only apply to statements issued or amended after this rule becomes 
effective.
    License Exceptions TMP and GOV cross-references are updated in this 
final rule to conform to changes implemented in the April 16 rule. 
Specifically, this rule updates the references to TMP in: Sec.  
740.2(a)(5)(i) and (ii) from Sec.  740.9(a)(2)(ii) to Sec.  740.9(a)(4) 
(for kits consisting of replacement parts); Sec. Sec.  746.2(a)(1)(i), 
746.4(c), and 746.9(b)(i) from Sec.  740.9(a)(2)(viii) to Sec.  
740.9(a)(9) (for the news media); and Sec.  758.1(c)(6) from Sec.  
740.9(a)(2)(i) to Sec.  740.9(a)(1) (for tools of trade).
    In addition, prior to those revisions, the criteria for export or 
reexport to U.S. government personnel and agencies under License 
Exception GOV was in Sec.  740.11(b)(2)(i) and (ii) of the EAR and the 
criteria for export or reexport to agencies of a cooperating government 
were in Sec.  740.11(b)(2)(iii) and (iv) of the EAR. As revised, the 
criteria relating to agencies and personnel of the U.S. government are 
now in Sec.  740.11(b)(2) and those relating to agencies of a 
cooperating government are in Sec.  740.11(c)(2). The April 16 rule 
also made additional types of transactions relating to agencies and 
personnel of the U.S. government eligible for License Exception GOV in 
order to make License Exception GOV consistent with U.S. government 
related license exemptions available under the ITAR. However, the rule 
making those additions did not make conforming changes to Sec. Sec.  
746.4(c) and 746.9(b) of the EAR, which limit use of license exceptions 
for exports and reexports to North Korea and Syria, respectively. BIS 
did not intend to limit U.S. government related transactions to those 
destinations more narrowly than U.S. government related transactions to 
other destinations. Accordingly, this rule revises Sec. Sec.  746.4(c) 
and 746.9(b) of the EAR to allow use of License Exception GOV for all 
of the types of transactions described in Sec.  740.11(b)(2) of the 
EAR.
    In Sec.  750.7(c)(1)(ix) (Direct exports, reexports, or transfers 
(in-country) to and among approved end users and ultimate consignee on 
a license), this final rule makes a correction to this paragraph by 
adding the phrase ``and ultimate consignee'' after the phrase ``to and 
among approved end users'' to specify that direct exports, reexports, 
or transfers (in-country) to and among approved end users and the 
ultimate consignee on a license are a non-material change to the 
license, provided the other terms and conditions of paragraph 
(c)(1)(ix) are met. This was the intent of the April 16 rule, but after 
receiving a question that asked whether the ``to and among'' concept 
described in paragraph (c)(1)(ix) was intended to include the ultimate 
consignee listed on the license, BIS recognized that the regulatory 
text did not refer to the ultimate consignee and decided to correct 
this omission in this final rule.
    In Sec.  762.2(b)(9) (Records to be retained), this final rule 
corrects that paragraph by removing the outdated reference to ``Sec.  
740.13(f)'' (Technology and software--unrestricted TSU) and adding in 
its place the current paragraph reference ``Sec.  740.13(h).'' 
Paragraph (f) was redesignated as paragraph (h) in the April 16 rule, 
but this conforming change was not made to Sec.  762.2, so this final 
rule reflects the new paragraph designation in Sec.  740.13.
    ECCNs 9A610 and 9A619. This final rule makes a clarification for 
the ``600 series'' .y paragraphs in 9A610 and 9A619. BIS has received 
questions from the public regarding the classification of ``parts,'' 
``components,'' ``accessories,'' and ``attachments'' ``specially 
designed'' for commodities specified in the respective ``600 series'' 
.y paragraphs. For example, galleys are classified under 9A610.y.9 and 
the public has asked whether ``parts,'' ``components,'' 
``accessories,'' and ``attachments'' ``specially designed'' for 
galleys, such as a sink ``specially designed'' for use in a galley, are 
also classified under 9A610.y. These questioners believed BIS's intent 
was likely that such ``parts,'' ``components,'' ``accessories,'' and 
``attachments'' were also intended to be classified under those 
respective .y paragraphs and not under ``600 series'' .x paragraphs. To 
clarify the classification of such commodities, BIS adds the phrase 
``and ``parts,'' ``components,'' ``accessories,'' and ``attachments'' 
``specially designed''

[[Page 32619]]

therefor'' to the end of the .y paragraphs in 9A610 and 9A619, making 
it clear that such commodities are also classified under the .y 
paragraphs in these respective ``600 series'' ECCNs.'' BIS has recently 
made this same clarification to the .y paragraphs in ECCNs 0A606, 
0A617, 0B617, 8A609, 8A620, 8B609 and 8B620 in a correction rule for 
the July 8 rule. Subsequent ECR implementation final rules will also 
generally include such text regarding the scope of the respective .y 
paragraphs.
    This final rule also makes a change to ECCN 9A610 to clarify where 
``parts,'' ``components,'' ``accessories,'' and ``attachments'' 
``specially designed'' for commodities in ECCN 9A610.h are classified. 
The commodities classified in 9A610.h were moved from ECCN 9A018 in the 
April 16 rule. The former ECCN 9A018.e did not include a control on 
``specially designed'' ``parts,'' ``components,'' ``accessories,'' and 
``attachments,'' meaning such ``specially designed'' ``parts, 
``components,'' ``accessories, and ``attachments'' prior to the April 
16 rule, and dating back to the early 1990s, were designated as EAR99. 
For consistency with the Wassenaar Arrangement Munitions List (WAML) 
10.g, the April 16 rule added ``parts, ``components,'' ``accessories,'' 
and ``attachments'' for items under ECCN 9A610.h, which was done with 
the `catch-all' paragraph in ECCN 9A610.x based on ``specially 
designed.'' A person with ``components'' ``specially designed'' for 
commodities classified in ECCN 9A610.h raised the question whether it 
was BIS's intention to move the classification of such ``components'' 
from EAR99 to an ECCN with a worldwide license requirement, except for 
Canada, by classifying such ``components'' under 9A610.x.
    BIS determined that, for consistency with WAML 10.g, such 
``parts,'' ``components,'' ``accessories,'' and ``attachments'' should 
be classified under a ``600 series'' ECCN, but because they are 
militarily less significant, such ``parts,'' ``components,'' 
``accessories,'' and ``attachments'' ``specially designed'' for 
commodities in ECCN 9A610.h should have been classified in the April 16 
rule as ``specially designed'' ``parts,'' ``components, 
``accessories,'' and ``attachments'' under a paragraph in ECCN 9A610.y. 
This final rule makes this correction to ECCN 9A610 by adding a new 
``Items'' paragraph y.30 in the List of Items Controlled section. This 
paragraph will clarify that ``parts,'' ``components,'' ``accessories,'' 
and ``attachments'' ``specially designed'' for commodities other than 
electronic items or navigation equipment in ECCN 9A610.h are classified 
under 9A610.y.30, which is consistent with BIS's original intention for 
where such militarily less significant items should be controlled under 
the ``600 series.''
    Finally, this final rule revises 9A610.h to add the term 
``parachute'' between the phrase ``complete canopies'' to clarify the 
control is for complete parachute canopies and not complete cockpit 
canopies.
    ECCN 9B619. This final rule corrects 9B619 by adding the phrase 
``(see List of Items Controlled)'' to the end of the heading. ECCN 
9B619 includes an ``Items'' paragraph in the List of Items Controlled, 
so the heading should include the phrase ``(see List of Items 
Controlled).'' This change is made for consistency with the CCL and 
past final rules that adopted this consistent structure for ECCN 
headings on the CCL.

(G) Other Corrections and Clarifications to the EAR

    In addition to the corrections and clarifications described above, 
this final rule makes the following additional corrections and 
clarifications to the EAR, which resulted from amendments included in 
other final rules or other changes, such as removing a telephone number 
that is no longer needed in the EAR.
Other Typographical Errors and Corrections
    ECCN 1C350. This final rule corrects 1C350.c.12 by removing the 
hyphen from Ethyldiethanolamine. The hyphen was unintentionally 
included when this paragraph was initially published in the Federal 
Register on December 29, 2004 (69 FR 77890).
    In CCL Category 2, Product Group E, Materials Processing Table on 
Deposition Techniques, this final rule corrects the resultant coating 
for Molybdenum and Molybdenum alloy substrates in the Materials 
Processing Table on Deposition Techniques in the introductory portion 
of Category 2, Product Group E. The table listed the resultant coating 
as ``Dielectric Players'' and it is corrected to read ``Dielectric 
layers.''
Other Conforming Changes and Clarifications to Past Amendments to EAR
    In Sec.  740.9, this final rule makes a correction to the heading 
of paragraph (a)(6) (Inspection and calibration) by adding the terms 
``test'' and ``repair'' to the heading of this paragraph. Paragraph 
(a)(6) includes the terms ``test'' and ``repair'' in the text of the 
paragraph, but the heading may give the mistaken impression that the 
scope of this paragraph is limited to inspection and calibration, so 
the heading is revised to read ``Inspection, test, calibration and 
repair,'' which more accurately reflects the scope of this paragraph.
    Also in Sec.  740.9 (Temporary Imports, Exports, Reexports, and 
Transfers (in-country) (TMP)), this final rule makes a correction to 
paragraph (c)(8) by removing the phrase ``paragraphs (a) through (e)'' 
and adding in its place ``paragraphs (a) through (d)'' for the 
reference to Supplement No. 6 to part 742. Supplement No. 6 to part 742 
does not include a paragraph (e).
    In Sec.  740.10 (License Exception Servicing and replacement of 
parts and equipment (RPL)), this final rule makes a clarification to 
License Exception RPL to replace the tern ``returned'' with the term 
``sent'' in paragraph (b)(1) (Scope). This change is made to clarify 
that the scope of paragraph (b) does not require that the item in 
question be originally exported from the United States and subsequently 
returned to the United States for servicing. This change is made 
because the intent of paragraph (b)(1) is to also allow for items 
produced outside the United States to be sent to the United States for 
servicing under paragraph (b). In addition, this final rule makes a 
conforming change to paragraph (b)(1) by adding in the phrase ``or to a 
foreign party for servicing,'' so the scope paragraph (b)(1) accurately 
reflects the scope of the authorization in paragraph (b)(2).
    In Sec.  742.6(b) (Licensing policy), this rule revises the first 
sentence of Sec.  742.6(b)(1) to explicitly state the foreign policy 
considerations employed in review of license applications for ``600 
series'' items include the United States' foreign policy interest of 
promoting the observance of human rights throughout the world. This is 
a longstanding foreign policy interest of the United States that is 
noted in both statute and regulation (see, e.g. 22 U.S.C. 2304(a) and 
15 CFR 742.7(a)). This revision merely provides explicit notice that 
the review of license applications for ``600 series'' items to 
determine whether the transaction is contrary to the foreign policy 
interests of the Unites States includes consideration of human rights. 
This is not a substantive change from the policy set forth in Sec.  
742.6(b)(1).
    In Sec.  746.3 (Iraq), this final rule also removes the outdated 
reference to the ``Interim Government of Iraq'' and adds in its place 
the correct reference the ``Government of Iraq.'' The final rule also 
in that same section removes the outdated reference to the phrase ``or 
the Multinational Force in Iraq.''

[[Page 32620]]

    In Sec.  746.3(c) (License Exceptions), in addition to the changes 
described above for this section to remove the two outdated references, 
this final rule removes an errant open quotation mark, adds a sentence 
to the end of paragraph (c) to clarify the relationship between the 
license requirements in paragraph (a)(4) of this section and the use of 
license exceptions. This new sentence clarifies that license exceptions 
may not be applied to paragraph (a)(4) license requirements. This 
clarification is not a change in policy, but rather clarifies the 
existing relationship between paragraphs (a)(4) and (c).
    In Sec.  748.2(a)(3), this final rule removes the first telephone 
number listed (408) 998-8805 for BIS's Western Regional Office in 
paragraph (a)(3) because it will no longer be used as a general 
outreach number. The second telephone number listed in that paragraph 
for the Western Regional Office is intended to be used by the public as 
a general outreach number and will remain in paragraph (a)(3).
    In Sec.  748.4(h) (Emergency processing), this final rule revises 
the cross reference regarding validity periods on emergency licenses 
from Sec.  750.7(h) to Sec.  750.7(g). Section 750.7(g) is the section 
of the EAR that addresses validity periods, including for emergency 
licenses. This revision simply corrects an error and improves the 
utility of the EAR to exporters.
    In Supplement No. 7 to Part 748 (Authorization Validated End-User 
(VEU): List of Validated End-Users, Respective Items Eligible for 
Export, Reexport and Transfer, and Eligible Destinations), this rule 
corrects an oversight by adding an omitted Federal Register citation to 
one of the VEU entries. Specifically, in this rule, BIS amends the VEU 
List by revising the ``Federal Register Citation'' Column for VEU Lam 
Research Service Co., Ltd. (Lam) in ``China, (Peoples Republic of)'' to 
include the citation for the most recent amendment to Lam's VEU 
authorization. That citation is 78 FR 54752, 9/6/13.
    In Sec.  750.7(c) (Changes to the license), this final rule adds a 
non-material change under new paragraph (c)(2) (Notification of name 
change by advisory opinion request) to specify that in certain cases a 
name change can be made for a party listed on a BIS license (i.e., name 
of exporter, reexporter, purchaser, intermediate consignee, ultimate 
consignee, or end user), provided no changes in ownership, merger or 
acquisition activity, or other change in legal status has occurred 
since the time the license was approved for the person listed on the 
license. In order to rely on this new paragraph, BIS must have approved 
the name change in response to a request for an advisory opinion 
submitted by the licensee that BIS treat the name change as an eligible 
name change under this paragraph. Prior to publication of this final 
rule, because name changes were not identified in paragraph (c), any 
name change for a party listed on a BIS license was a material change 
to the license. However, in certain cases, exporters, reexporters or 
transferors submitted advisory opinion requests to BIS that requested 
BIS confirmation that certain name changes did not warrant a new 
license, because the party listed on the license was the same in all 
respects, except for the change in the name, which was typically being 
changed for marketing or branding reasons. BIS has approved such name 
changes in the past through advisory opinion responses when the person 
listed on the license was the same, except for the name change. Making 
BIS's past practice more explicit in the EAR will also make the EAR 
more consistent with the ITAR since DDTC uses a similar process for 
reviewing and approving similar types of name changes under 22 CFR 
126.3 (Exceptions) and 22 CFR 122.4 (Notification of changes in 
information furnished by registrants). BIS adds this new paragraph 
(c)(2) to ensure all interested parties are aware that such an advisory 
opinion may be submitted to BIS.
    This final rule adds a new paragraph (c)(2)(i) to specify the 
information that must be included in advisory opinion requests for name 
changes. This final rule adds a new paragraph (c)(2)(ii) to specify how 
BIS will respond to such an advisory opinion request. This rule adds a 
new paragraph (c)(2)(iii), to specify the additional actions required 
by a licensee, when relying on paragraph (c)(2), including a cross 
reference to see Sec.  758.4(d) (Exports against licenses with approved 
name changes) for export clearance requirements for such licenses. 
These requirements under paragraphs (c)(2)(i)-(iii) put into the EAR 
the established practices and review criteria BIS already uses when 
reviewing such advisory opinion requests and making such 
determinations. Lastly, paragraph (c)(2)(iv) reminds the licensee that 
if the name change request is not approved by BIS or the licensee 
believes that the name change that is a material change to the license, 
then the parties to the transaction should apply for a new license. 
Sec.  758.1 (The Electronic Export Information (EEI) filing to the 
Automated Export System (AES)), Sec.  758.4 (Use of export license) and 
Sec.  762.2 (Records to be retained) are updated as necessary to add 
references to Sec.  750.7(c)(2), describing circumstances where the 
licensee can change the name of persons listed on a license. Under 
Sec.  758.1 this final rule revises paragraph (f)(2) that deals with 
conformity of statements on AES records with the contents of BIS 
licenses, to add a reference to name changes approved by BIS in writing 
in accordance with Sec.  750.7(c)(2) of the EAR, as a possible 
exception for when the information entered into the AES record may not 
conform to what is listed on the license. This final rule also replaces 
in paragraph (f)(2) the phrase ``exporter blocks'' with the AES phrase 
``USPPI and USPPI identification blocks'' to conform with how those 
blocks are referred to in AES. Under Sec.  758.4 this final rule adds a 
new paragraph (d) (Exports against license with approved name changes) 
to specify that when exporting against a license with an approved name 
change under Sec.  750.7(c)(2), prior to using that export license you 
are required to include in the respective name field in AES (e.g., in 
the USPPI name field in AES), the new name followed by the original 
name in this format ``[new name] f.k.a. [original name].'' This 
additional reporting requirement (by putting additional text into an 
existing box on an already approved form) would be completed by the 
authorized filer of the electronic export information (EEI) in AES. The 
use of the acronym f.k.a. will alert those reviewing the AES data that 
this person was formerly known as the original name. Under Sec.  762.2 
(Records to be retained), this final rule adds a new paragraph (b)(53) 
to specify that notification of name change by advisory opinion 
requests made under Sec.  750.7(c)(2) are records that must be 
retained.
    In Sec.  772.1 (Definitions of terms as used in the Export 
Administration Regulations), under the definition of ``technology,'' 
this final rule adds a sentence to the end of the definition. This 
final rule also adds a note 2 to the definition of ``technology'' and 
redesignates the current note as note 1. The new sentence clarifies 
that ``technology'' also includes specific information necessary for 
operation, installation, maintenance, repair, overhaul, refurbishing, 
as well as for other terms specified in ECCNs that control 
``technology.'' The new note 2 also does not change the definition of 
``technology.'' The note provides additional guidance on the 
application of the definition based on current BIS

[[Page 32621]]

practice and past interpretive guidance BIS has provided, along with 
the new sentence this final rule adds to the definition. This new note 
2 clarifies that ``technology'' not elsewhere specified on the CCL is 
designated as EAR99, unless the ``technology'' is subject to the 
exclusive jurisdiction of another U.S. Government agency or is 
otherwise not subject to the EAR as set forth in Sec.  734.4(b)(2) and 
(b)(3) and Sec. Sec.  734.7 through 734.11 of the EAR.
    In Sec.  772.1, under the definition of ``use,'' this final rule 
adds a note to the definition of ``use.'' The note does not change the 
definition of ``use.'' The note is limited to providing guidance on the 
application of the definition based on current BIS practice and past 
interpretive guidance BIS has provided. The new note clarifies that if 
an ECCN specifies one or more of the six elements of ``use'' in the 
heading or control text, only those elements specified are captured 
under that ECCN.
    In CCL Category 1 and CCL Category 5--Part 2, this final rule 
reinserts the Product Group D heading in CCL Category 1 and reinserts 
the Product Groups A, B and E headings in CCL Category 5--Part 2. A 
final rule did not intentionally remove these Product Group headings 
from CCL Categories 1 and 5--Part 2. It appears that either a final 
rule inadvertently removed those Product Group headings or that in 
making an incorporation into the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) for 
the EAR, those Product Group headings may have inadvertently been 
removed. This final rule corrects Categories 1 and 5--Part 2 by 
reinserting those Product Group headings. BIS became aware of this 
issue when confirming that the incorporations for the Product Group 
headings were fully implemented for the April 16 rule.
EAR Conforming Changes Required by Amendment to ITAR
    This final rule makes two conforming changes to the EAR in Sec.  
746.1(b)(2) and Supplement No. 1 to part 740 as a result of a final 
rule published by the Department of State on April 17, 2014 (79 FR 
21616), titled Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms 
Regulations: Central African Republic. The State Department's rule 
revised ITAR Sec.  126.1 to include the Central African Republic in new 
paragraph (u), establishing that it is the policy of the United States 
to deny licenses or other approval for exports or imports of defense 
articles and defense services destined for or originating in the 
Central African Republic and specifying under what circumstances a 
license or other approval may be issued on a case-by-case basis. The 
April 17 rule noted that ITAR Sec.  126.1(u) was being added to 
implement the United Nations arms embargo, adopted in United Nations 
Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2127 (December 5, 2013) and UNSC 
Resolution 2134 (January 28, 2014).
    This final rule revises Sec.  746.1(b)(2) (Sanctions on selected 
categories of items to specific destinations), which identifies 
destinations subject to United Nations Security Council arms embargoes, 
by adding the Central African Republic. This final rule also revises 
Country Group D:5 (in Supplement No. 1 to part 740), which identifies 
countries subject to U.S. arms embargoes to add the country of Central 
African Republic. As is noted in footnote 1 to Country Group D:5, 
Country Group D:5 is intended to track with the ITAR's Sec.  126.1 and 
as additions or removals are made to this section of the ITAR, 
conforming changes are made to Country Group D:5. Because the Central 
African Republic is also subject to a United Nations Security Council 
arms embargo, conforming changes are needed in both Country Group D:5 
and Sec.  746.1.

Export Administration Act

    Although the Export Administration Act expired on August 20, 2001, 
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 8, 2013, 78, 2013, 78 FR 49107 (August 12, 2013), has continued 
the Export Administration Regulations in effect under the International 
Emergency Economic Powers Act. 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.

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, distribute 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 final rule, which is a consolidation of corrections 
and clarifications of final rules published in 2013 and 2014, has been 
determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is 
required to respond to nor be subject to a penalty for failure to 
comply with a collection of information, subject to the requirements of 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), 
unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number. This regulation involves 
collections previously approved by OMB under control number 0694-0088, 
Simplified Network Application Processing System, which includes, among 
other things, license applications and carries a burden estimate of 
43.8 minutes for a manual or electronic submission; license exceptions 
(0694-0137); recordkeeping (0694-0096); export clearance (0694-0122); 
and the Automated Export System (0607-0152). Total burden hours 
associated with the PRA and OMB control number 0694-0088 are expected 
to slightly decrease as a result of this rule when taking into account 
the full scope of corrections and clarifications included in this final 
rule. The two changes in this final rule that may result in a slight 
increase are (1) the clarification to ECCN 1A984, and (2) the changes 
made to the EAR to add the Central African Republic to Sec.  
746.1(b)(2) and in Supplement No. 1 to part 740 under Country Group D:5 
to conform to the addition of this country to Sec.  126.1 of the ITAR. 
Specifically, the clarification that the last phrase of ECCN 1A984 also 
includes ``parts'' and ``components'' ``specially designed'' therefor 
and not elsewhere specified may result in a slight increase in the 
number of applications received by BIS, although BIS believes the 
public likely was already treating such ``specially designed'' 
``parts'' and ``components'' as pyrotechnic articles under ECCN 1A984, 
so the overall impact of this clarification is expected to be minimal. 
The addition of the Central African Republic to Sec.  746.1(b)(2) and 
to Country Group D:5 in Supplement No. 1 to part 740 is not expected to 
result in much of an increase in the number of license applications 
received because the license requirements in Sec.  746.1(b) are in 
almost all cases redundant with the other EAR license requirements that 
apply to the countries identified in paragraph (b)(2), such as Crime 
Control. The addition of the Central African Republic to Country Group 
D:5 for the ``600 series'' will impose significant restrictions, but 
the overall impact on licenses received is anticipated to be

[[Page 32622]]

minimal. You may send comments regarding the collection of information 
associated with this rule, including suggestions for reducing the 
burden, to Jasmeet K. Seehra, Office of Management and Budget (OMB), by 
email to Jasmeet_K._Seehra@omb.eop.gov, or by fax to (202) 395-7285.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined under E.O. 13132.
    4. The Department of Commerce finds that there is good cause under 
5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to waive the provisions of the Administrative 
Procedure Act otherwise requiring prior notice and the opportunity for 
public comment because they are unnecessary. The majority of the 
revisions made by this rule are administrative in nature and do not 
affect the privileges and obligations of the public. These revisions in 
this rule are important to get in place as soon as possible to avoid 
confusion by the public regarding the intent and meaning of recent 
changes to the EAR without harming anyone's substantive rights. The 
Department also finds that there is good cause under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(A) to waive the provisions of the Administrative Procedure 
Act requiring notice and comment because these changes are limited to 
providing guidance on existing interpretations of current EAR 
provisions. These changes, which are described above, include the 
revisions to Sec. Sec.  736.2, 740.2(a)(13), 742.6(b)(1), 746.3(c), 
750.7, 750.7(c)(1)(ix), 758.1(f)(2), 758.4(d), 772.1 for the 
definitions of ``specially designed,'' ``technology'' and ``use'' and 
ECCN 1A984. These revisions in this rule are important to get in place 
as soon as possible so the public will be aware of these existing 
interpretations of current EAR provisions. Because these revisions are 
not substantive changes to the EAR, the 30-day delay in effectiveness 
otherwise required by 5 U.S.C. 553(d) is not applicable. No other law 
requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and opportunity for 
public comment be given for this rule. The analytical requirements of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are not 
applicable.
    5. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for 
public comment are not required to be given for these amendments by 5 
U.S.C. 553, or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., are not applicable.
    6. With respect to amendments to Sec.  740.11, the Department also 
finds that the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 
553) requiring prior notice, the opportunity for public comment and a 
delay in effective date are inapplicable because this amendment 
involves a military or foreign affairs function of the United States 
(see 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). BIS, with the concurrence of the U.S. 
Departments of Defense and State, is amending Sec.  740.11 to allow 
items subject to the EAR to be exported, reexported or transferred (in-
country) to, and in support of, specific cooperating governments or 
agencies of NATO for their official use. Under the existing 
regulations, cooperating governments could already receive exports of 
these items. The changes being made to Sec.  740.11 add NATO and its 
agencies to the list of recipients and, in furtherance of the 
objectives of NATO, the United States, and its allies, the rule 
clarifies that reexports and transfers (in-country) are authorized by 
this license exception when for their official use wherever the items 
are needed.
    Immediate allowance of a license exception is necessary to effect 
this amendment's national security and foreign policy goals of allowing 
NATO and cooperating governments to receive items subject to the EAR 
for military purposes, to users and for uses that support the national 
security of the United States and its allies. In the alternative, BIS 
finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to forgo prior notice and 
the opportunity for public comment. In addition to the reasons 
described above, if BIS delayed this rule to allow for prior notice and 
opportunity for public comment, the resulting delay in applying for and 
receiving licenses could pose a national security threat, thereby 
undermining the purpose of the rule.
    In addition, BIS finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in 
effectiveness under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). Immediate implementation will 
allow NATO and cooperating governments to receive and use these items 
to assist the national security of the United States and its allies. If 
BIS delayed this rule to allow for a 30-day delay in effectiveness, the 
resulting delay in implementation would create a delay and possible 
negative impacts on the United States' support of NATO and its allies 
similar to delays this rule is seeking to avoid by allowing a license 
exception for these transactions.
    Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for 
public comment are not required to be given for these changes by 5 
U.S.C. 553, or by any other law, the analytical requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., are not applicable.
    7. The Department finds that there is good cause under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(3)(B) to waive the provisions of the Administrative Procedure 
Act requiring prior notice and the opportunity for public comment 
because they are either unnecessary or contrary to the public interest. 
This rationale applies to the changes in Sec. Sec.  740.10, 740.20 and 
in Supplement No. 1 to part 774 under ECCNs 9A610.y and 9A619.y. The 
rationale also applies to the reinsertion of text removed in ECCNs 
2B352, 5A980, 6A002 and 9A120 to correct oversights in the October 4 
rule that mistakenly did not take into account edits to the underlying 
ECCN text or redesignation of paragraphs in those four ECCNs in earlier 
final rules. These revisions are non-substantive, only clarifying the 
regulations and thus prior notice and the opportunity for public 
comment is unnecessary. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an 
opportunity for public comment are not required to be given for these 
amendments by 5 U.S.C. 553, or by any other law, the analytical 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., 
are not applicable.

    (ix) Direct exports, reexports, or transfers (in-country) to and 
among approved end users and the ultimate consignee on a license, 
provided those end users and ultimate consignee are listed by name and 
location on such license and the license does not contain any 
conditions specific to the ultimate consignee that cannot be complied 
with by the end user, such as a reporting requirement that must be made 
by the ultimate consignee. Reexports and transfers (in-country) among 
approved end users may be further limited by license conditions.
    (2) In some circumstances, BIS may authorize changing the name of a 
person listed on a license (i.e., name of exporter, reexporter, 
purchaser, intermediate consignee, ultimate consignee or end user), 
provided the pertinent person has not undergone a change in ownership, 
including merger or acquisition, or any other change in legal status 
since the time the license was issued. In order to rely on this 
paragraph (c)(2), BIS must have approved the name change in response to 
an advisory opinion request submitted by the licensee pursuant to Sec.  
748.3(c) of the EAR and the instructions below.
    (i) The advisory opinion request must be submitted on the 
licensee's company letterhead and include the following information:

name change notification and review request;''
    (B) All license numbers subject to the notification and review 
request (either in the letter or as a separate attachment);
    (C) The name(s) changing on the license(s) (include the original 
and new names), and when the name(s) are changing (either in the letter 
or as a separate attachment);
    (D) Any background information available on the reasons for the 
name change(s) (e.g., press releases from the person changing its 
name(s)); and
    (E) A statement regarding whether there has been a change in 
ownership, including a merger or acquisition, or any other change in 
legal status regarding the person(s) changing its name(s).
    (F) Confirmation that, if the request is approved, the licensee 
will share the advisory opinion response from BIS with all other 
persons listed on the license, and inform those persons that the 
advisory opinion response must be retained pursuant to the 
recordkeeping requirements in part 762 of the EAR.
    (ii) If BIS determines the name change is not a material change to 
the license and approves the request to change the name(s) on the 
license, BIS will send a written response to the licensee who submitted 
the notification. If BIS does not approve the request to change the 
name(s) on the license, BIS will send a written response to the 
licensee who submitted the notification.
    (iii) For guidance on using an export license with approved name 
changes, see Sec.  758.4(d) (Exports against license with approved name 
change).
    (iv) If a license name change notification and review request is 
denied by BIS or the licensee determines that there has been a material 
change to the license, such as a change in ownership of a person on the 
license, including merger or acquisition, or any other change in legal 
status since the time the license was issued, a new license application 
should be submitted.
