Update of Short Supply Export Controls: Unprocessed Western Red 
Cedar, Crude Oil, and Petroleum Products

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) publishes this final 
rule to amend two supplements in the Export Administration Regulations 
(EAR), which contain lists of controlled crude oil and petroleum 
products (produced or derived from the Naval Petroleum Reserve (NPR)) 
and unprocessed western red cedar, respectively. These lists provide 
relevant Census Bureau Schedule B commodity numbers and associated 
commodity descriptions of these short supply commodities. Many of the 
Schedule B commodity numbers and associated commodity descriptions 
listed prior to publication of this rule in the two supplements are now 
obsolete. This rule updates the lists in the two supplements to remove 
obsolete descriptions and Schedule B commodity numbers, and to add 
relevant descriptions and Schedule B commodity numbers for these short 
supply commodities. This rule also clarifies the description of 
petroleum products in other sections of the EAR to ensure those 
references are current. This rule will not alter or otherwise affect 
BIS's current enforcement practice with respect to the EAR's controls 
on unprocessed western red cedar or crude oil and petroleum products.

DATES: Effective date is June 17, 2014.

Technology Evaluation, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of 
Commerce, Phone: (202) 482-2078 or by email at

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The ``Harmonized System Classification'' is a six-digit 
standardized numerical method of classifying traded products. 
Harmonized System numbers are used by customs authorities around the 
world to identify products for the application of duties and taxes. The 
United States has adopted the Harmonized System as the basis of both 
its export classification system, referred to as Schedule B, and its 
import classification system, called the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
(HTS). The first six digits of the commodity numbers for a product 
listed on the HTS and the Schedule B are identical to one another with 
respect to descriptions and codes.
    Schedule B numbers are administered and used by the U.S. Commerce 
Department, Census Bureau, Foreign Trade Division to collect and 
publish U.S. export statistics. Schedule B numbers are required to be 
reported in the Automated Export System (AES) for all export 
transactions originating in the United States. There is a Schedule B 
commodity number for every physical product, from paperclips to 
airplanes, that are exported from the United States to foreign 
countries. According to the introduction to the Schedule B, which 
provides for definitions of commonly-used terms and a guide to 
interpreting and using the Schedule B, the term ``headings'' refers to 
the article descriptions appearing in Schedule B at the four-digit 
level; the term ``subheading'' refers to any article description 
indented thereunder. A reference to ``headings'' also encompasses the 
subheadings indented thereunder. The Schedule B 2014 may be found at 
http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/schedules/b/2014/index.html. There 
is no direct correlation between Schedule B commodity numbers and the 
Commerce Control List Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs).
    The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) regulates the export of 
unprocessed western red cedar, crude oil, and petroleum products (that 
were produced or derived from the Naval Petroleum Reserves (NPR) or 
became available for export as a result of an exchange of any NPR-
produced or derived commodities) under the Export Administration 
Regulations' (EAR) short supply controls. A license is required for 
exports of these commodities to all destinations, including Canada.
    For the convenience of exporters, BIS created Supplement No. 1 and 
Supplement No. 2 to part 754 in the EAR to illustrate the Schedule B 
commodity numbers that could apply to crude oil, petroleum products, 
and unprocessed western red cedar controlled under the EAR. The 
Schedule B numbers in Supplement No. 1 to part 754 (crude oil and 
petroleum products) were based on the 1994 version of the Schedule B of 
commodity classifications. The Schedule B numbers in Supplement No. 2 
to part 754 (unprocessed western red cedar) were based on versions of 
the Schedule B from the 1980's. The current version applicable to all 
of these commodities is Schedule B 2014.
    This rule updates the lists in the two supplements to remove 
obsolete descriptions and Schedule B commodity numbers and add relevant 
descriptions and Schedule B commodity numbers for these short supply 
commodities. This rule also clarifies the description of petroleum 
products in other sections of the EAR to ensure those references are 
current.

Supplement No. 1 to Part 754--Petroleum and Petroleum Products

    Supplement No. 1 to part 754 of the EAR contains a total of 43 
Schedule B numbers, two for crude oil and 41 for petroleum products. 
Significant modifications to Schedule B numbers have taken place over 
the years. After twenty years, all Schedule B numbers, except one 
(2804.29.0010 for ``Helium'') are now either obsolete or have undergone 
modifications to the commodity descriptions in the Schedule

[[Page 34409]]

B. Specifically, the two numbers for crude oil and 22 numbers for 
petroleum products are obsolete, and the modifications have been made 
to the commodity descriptions in 18 numbers for petroleum products. 
This rule updates the Schedule B numbers and commodity descriptions in 
Supplement No. 1 of Part 754. The descriptions are derived from the 
2014 Schedule B and the AES 2014 Export Concordance (December 30, 2013) 
(``AES 2014 Export Concordance''), http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/aes/documentlibrary/expaes.txt. The AES 2014 Export Concordance 
includes Schedule B numbers and commodity descriptions that reflect 
consolidations of descriptions that appear at the subheading level in 
the 2014 Schedule B. The footnote that provided a source for the table 
has been removed, and the information that was in the footnote has been 
incorporated into introductory text to the Supplement.
    Included in the introduction chapter to the 2014 Schedule B are 
rules of interpretation, which provide information on how to read and 
interpret the Schedule B list. Also, there are Notes at the beginning 
of Chapter 27 of the 2014 Schedule B that pertain specifically to 
products in this chapter. For example, Note 6 under the Statistical 
Notes states, ``In determining the relative weights of components of 
the mixtures provided for in subheading 2710.11.45 and 2710.19.45, 
naphtha and other petroleum derivatives which may be present in such 
mixtures as solvents shall be disregarded.'' Therefore, it is important 
to read the rules of interpretation and all the notes at the beginning 
of chapter 27 that pertain to your products in order to properly 
classify your product.

Supplement No. 2 to Part 754--Unprocessed Western Red Cedar

    Supplement No. 2 contains three Schedule B numbers, 200.3516, 
200.2820, and 202.2840, for unprocessed western red cedar. As a result 
of significant modifications to Schedule B numbers that have taken 
place over the years, these three numbers are now obsolete. 
Additionally, the current commodity descriptions are incomplete as they 
only include western red cedar logs and timber, lumber (rough and 
containing wane), and lumber (dressed or worked, containing wane). This 
rule updates the three Schedule B numbers and commodity descriptions in 
Supplement No. 2 of Part 754. To determine if your Western Red Cedar 
(WRC) product requires a license, see Sec.  754.4 of the EAR.
    This rule replaces the three obsolete Schedule B numbers of 
unprocessed western red cedar, and adds five new numbers, for a total 
of eight Schedule B numbers drawn from the Schedule B 2014. The eight 
numbers are divided into two groups: wood in the rough and lumber. The 
accompanying commodity descriptions may have terms with single quotes, 
which indicate that a definition may be found in the notes below the 
table. The descriptions in this supplement were derived from the 2014 
Schedule B and the AES 2014 Export Concordance. This rule also adds 
definitions for three terms, `treated,' `lumber,' and `rough,' that 
appear in commodity description listings in the Schedule B 2014, as 
Notes to Supplement No. 2. Including these definitions will help 
exporters better understand the commodity descriptions in the 
supplement.
    If there are any discrepancies between the information in 
Supplement No. 2 and the information in the most current Schedule B, 
which is updated on an annual basis, you should use the most current 
Schedule B number in your Electronic Export Information filing in the 
Bureau of the Census's Automated Export System.
    This rule also makes an administrative change to remove the Unit 
column in the table for Unprocessed Western Red Cedar in Supplement No. 
2 to part 754 as ``Unit'' was removed from the Commerce Control List on 
January 6, 2014 (78 FR 61874).

Section 742.1(b)(1) CCL Based Controls; Reasons for Control Listed on 
the CCL not Covered by This Part; Short Supply

    This rule amends Sec.  742.1(b)(1) by adding the word ``certain'' 
to the description of ECCN 1C983, because only natural gas liquids and 
other natural gas derivatives that were produced or derived from the 
Naval Petroleum Reserves (NPR) or became available for export as a 
result of an exchange of any NPR produced or derived commodities are 
controlled by the short supply reason for control in part 754 of the 
EAR. This rule also adds the word ``unprocessed'' to the description of 
ECCN 1C988, because only unprocessed western red cedar is controlled by 
the short supply reason for control in part 754 of the EAR.

Section 754.1 Introduction

    This rule amends Sec.  754.1 by revising subpart (b)(1)(iii) to 
remove the language ``listed in Supplement No. 2 to this part.'' This 
revision, which is also reflected in Sec.  754.4, delinks the license 
requirement from the listings in Supplement No. 2 to part 754. This 
revision clarifies that exporters must consult Sec.  754.4, not 
Supplement No. 2 to part 754, to determine the license requirements for 
unprocessed western red cedar products controlled under ECCN 1C988. 
Section 754.4 contains definitions of ``unprocessed'' western red cedar 
and other key terms that are relevant to the scope of the license 
requirements. The revision is consistent with the understanding that 
the Supplement No. 2 Schedule B listings are not exhaustive. The 
listings (and the Schedule B more generally) do not capture the full 
range of products that may meet the definition of ``unprocessed western 
red cedar'' for purposes of Sec.  754.4 of the EAR.

Section 754.4 Unprocessed Western Red Cedar

    This rule amends Sec.  754.4 by revising the introductory text to 
paragraph (a). The introductory text to paragraph (a) is amended to 
remove the language ``listed in Supplement No. 2 to this part,'' 
consistent with the revision made to Sec.  754.1. A new sentence is 
added to reference and explain the revised listings in Supplement No. 
2. An editorial change is also made to put in lower case the words 
``license exception'' in the last sentence of the introductory text to 
paragraph (a).

Supplement No. 1 to Part 774--Commerce Control List

    This rule amends the heading of ECCN 1C988 by adding the word 
``unprocessed'' to be more precise about the control. The reference to 
Supplement No. 2 to part 754 of the EAR is replaced by a reference to 
Sec.  754.4 of the EAR, thereby clarifying that exporters should 
consult Sec.  754.4 to determine the licensing requirements that apply 
to unprocessed western red cedar. The license requirement of ECCN 1C988 
is based on the definitions and other information in Sec.  754.4 of the 
EAR. The Related Definitions paragraph in the List of Items Controlled 
section of ECCN 1C988 is amended to add a reference to and description 
of Supplement No. 2 to part 754.
    These clarifying changes do not alter or otherwise affect BIS's 
current practice with respect to the enforcement of the EAR's controls 
on unprocessed western red cedar.

Export Administration Act

    Since August 21, 2001, the Export Administration Act of 1979, as 
amended, has been in lapse. However, the President, through Executive 
Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as 
amended by

[[Page 34410]]

Executive Order 13637 of March 8, 2013, 78 FR 16129 (March 13, 2013), 
and as extended by the Notice of August 8, 2013, 78 FR 49107 (August 
12, 2013) has continued the EAR in effect under the International 
Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.). BIS continues 
to carry out the provisions of the Export Administration Act, as 
appropriate and to the extent permitted by law, pursuant to Executive 
Order 13222 as amended by Executive Order 13637.

Rulemaking Requirements

    1. Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. This rule has not been designated a ``significant 
regulatory action,'' under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is 
required to respond to, nor is 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 the OMB under the following control 
numbers: 0694-0088 (Simplified Network Application Processing and 
Multipurpose Application Form).
    This final rule would not increase public burden in a collection of 
information approved by OMB under control number 0694-0088, which 
authorizes, among other things, export license applications, because it 
is simply updating the Schedule B numbers and commodity descriptions 
for certain commodities in Supplement No. 1 of part 754 and making 
certain limited corrections to Sec. Sec.  742.1, 754.1 and 754.4.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined in Executive Order 13132.
    4. The Department finds that there is good cause under 5 U.S.C. 
553(b)(B) to waive the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act 
requiring prior notice and the opportunity for public comment because 
they are unnecessary. The revisions made by this rule are 
administrative, not substantive, in nature and merely update the EAR to 
reflect changes to regulations referenced therein so that those 
references are harmonized with revisions that have been made to the 
Census Bureau's Schedule B 2014 publication, e.g., updating commodity 
descriptions, removing obsolete Schedule B Numbers, and adding new 
Schedule B numbers. The rule does not affect the rights and obligations 
of the public. Because these revisions are not substantive changes to 
the EAR, it is unnecessary to provide prior notice and opportunity for 
public comment.
    In addition, the 30-day delay in effectiveness required by 5 U.S.C. 
553(d) is not applicable because this rule is not a substantive rule. 
As stated above, these revisions do not alter any rights or 
obligations, but merely correct citations and definitions set forth in 
the EAR so that those references are harmonized with revisions that 
have been made to the Bureau of the Census' Schedule B 2014 
publication, e.g., updating commodity descriptions, removing obsolete 
Schedule B Numbers, and adding new Schedule B numbers. The revisions 
are necessary to facilitate public understanding of the EAR's short 
supply controls on unprocessed western red cedar, crude oil, and 
petroleum products. Accordingly, no benefit would be gained by delaying 
this rule's effectiveness for 30 days.
    Because notice and opportunity for comment are not required 
pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553 or any other law, the analytical requirements 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are 
inapplicable. Therefore, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not 
required and has not been prepared.
