“The Bureau of Industry and Security is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of July 8, 2013 (78 FR 40892) (here and after referred to as the July 8 rule), which becomes effective on January 6, 2014. The July 8 rule adds to the Export Administration Regulations controls on military vehicles and related items; vessels of war and related items; submersible vessels, oceanographic equipment and related items; and auxiliary and miscellaneous items that the President has determined no longer warrant control on the United States Munitions List (USML). The July 8 rule also adds to the EAR controls on items within the scope of the Munitions List (WAML) of the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement) that are not specifically identified on the USML or the Commerce Control List (CCL) but that were subject to USML jurisdiction. Finally, the July 8 rule moves certain items that were already subject to the EAR to the new Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) created by this rule. The July 8 rule was published in conjunction with the publication of a Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls rule revising USML Categories VII, VI, XX, and XIII to control those articles the President has determined warrant control in those Categories of the USML. Both rules are part of the President’s Export Control Reform Initiative. The revisions in the July 8 final rule are also part of Commerce’s retrospective regulatory review plan under Executive Order (EO) 13563. The Department of State is also correcting today its final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of July 8, 2013 (78 FR 40922).”
