“In this rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) proposes to amend the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to clarify and expand restrictions on the availability of License Exception Strategic Trade Authorization (License Exception STA or STA) for the export, reexport and transfer (in-country) of certain items controlled under the EAR. Specifically, BIS proposes to clarify the ‘Special Conditions for STA’ paragraph in certain Category 9 Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) on the Commerce Control List to refer exporters to the limitations set forth in the EAR. Also, continuing its efforts to improve export controls and refine License Exception STA, BIS proposes to further restrict the availability of License Exception STA for certain technology controlled under ECCNs 2E003.f and 1E001. This rule also proposes related conforming amendments in License Exception STA and in affected ECCNs.”
