Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Third 
Rule Implementing Export Control Reform; Correction

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Final rule, correction.

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

SUMMARY: The Department of State is correcting a final rule that 
appeared in the Federal Register of January 2, 2014 (79 FR 34). The 
final rule amended the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) 
as part of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) effort.

DATES: This rule is effective July 1, 2014.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department provides the following 
corrections to the rule, ``Amendment to the International Traffic in 
Arms Regulations: Third Rule Implementing Export Control Reform,'' 
published on January 2, 2014, and effective on July 1, 2014 (79 FR 34). 
As part of the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) effort, the 
Department of State is amending the International Traffic in Arms 
Regulations (ITAR) to revise five more U.S. Munitions List (USML) 
categories and provide other changes.
    The changes in this rule are meant to clarify the regulation by 
revising certain text and providing conforming updates to Supplement 
No. 1 to part 126, taking into account revisions made to the USML 
categories in the rule published on January 2, 2014. Additionally, 
supplement No. 1 to part 126 is amended by removing the note pertaining 
to cluster munitions (previously, Note 16) because its presence created 
unnecessary confusion with respect to U.S. policy on cluster munitions.
    Pursuant to ECR, the Department of Commerce has been publishing 
revisions to the Export Administration Regulations, including various 
revisions to the Commerce Control List (CCL). Revision of the USML and 
CCL are coordinated so there is uninterrupted regulatory coverage for 
items moving from the jurisdiction of the Department of State to that 
of the Department of Commerce. However, the Department of Commerce's 
companion to the rule corrected in this notice (see ``Control of 
Military Training Equipment, Energetic Materials, Personal Protective 
Equipment, Shelters, Articles Related to Launch Vehicles, Missiles, 
Rockets, Military Explosives, and Related Items,'' 79 FR 264) is not 
being corrected in this edition of the Federal Register.
    The following corrections are made to the rule, ``Amendment to the 
International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Third Rule Implementing 
Export Control Reform,'' FR Doc. 2013-31323, published on January 2, 
2014 (79 FR 34):

  etc. Display or identification correlation refers to the combination of target detections from multiple
  sources for assignment of common target track designation.
Note 4: Software source code beyond that source code required for basic operation, maintenance, and training for
  programs, systems, and/or subsystems is not eligible for use of the UK or AS Treaty exemptions, unless such

  eligible for export or transfer under the Treaties. Technical data, other than those data required for routine
  external maintenance and operation, related to the hot section is not eligible for export under the Canadian
  exemption. Technical data, other than those data required for routine external maintenance and operation,
  related to the hot section or digital engine controls, as well as individual hot section parts or components
  are not eligible for the Treaty exemption whether shipped separately or accompanying a complete engine. Gas
  turbine engine hot section exempted defense article components and technology are combustion chambers and

  group behaviors for target detection and classification, (b) adaptation to the environment or tactical
  situation for enhancing target detection and classification; ``intelligent autonomy'' algorithms that define
  the status, group (greater than 2) behaviors, and responses to detection stimuli by autonomous, underwater
  vehicles; and low frequency, broadband ``acoustic color,'' active acoustic ``fingerprint'' sensing for the
  purpose of long range, single pass identification of ocean bottom objects, buried or otherwise (controlled
  under Category USML XI(a)(1), (a)(2), (b), (c), and (d)).
Note 11: This exclusion does not apply to the platforms (e.g., vehicles) for which the armored plates are
  applied. For exclusions related to the platforms, refer to the other exclusions in this list, particularly for
  the category in which the platform is controlled.
The excluded defense articles include constructions of metallic or non-metallic materials or combinations
  thereof specially designed to provide protection for military systems. The phrase ``suitable for military
  use'' applies to any articles or materials which have been tested to level IIIA or above IAW NIJ standard
