Corrections and Clarifications Made to U.S. Export Control Regulations

Monday, December 29, 2014
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security is correcting certain provisions of the Export Administration Regulations that were amended in past rulemakings appearing in the Federal Register between Nov. 5, 2007 and Oct. 14, 2014. The purpose of the corrections is to ensure consistency and clarity in the regulations and fix typographical errors to ensure that the regulations accurately reflect the revisions intended by these past rulemakings.

Separately, the State Department is correcting effective Dec. 30 its July 1, 2014 rule amending U.S. Munitions List Category XI (military electronics) and making certain other changes in order 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. Minor corrections are also being made to section 126.6, as follows:

- subparagraph (c)(4) is being deleted to account for a previous revision to section 126.1 that excepts section 126.6;

- subparagraph (c)(6)(ii) is being revised to replace the obsolete term “Shippers Export Declaration” with the correct term “Electronic Export Information;” and

- subparagraph (c)(7)(iv) is being deleted to remove reference to the obsolete “Direct Shipment Verification Program.”
