ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains the 
Commerce Control List (CCL), which identifies items subject to 
Department of Commerce export controls. This final rule revises the 
Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement changes made to 
the Wassenaar Arrangement's List of Dual Use Goods and Technologies 
(Wassenaar List) maintained and agreed to by governments participating 
in the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms 
and Dual Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement, or WA). The 
Wassenaar Arrangement advocates implementation of effective export 
controls on strategic items with the objective of improving regional 
and international security and stability. To harmonize with the changes 
to the Wassenaar List, this rule revises the EAR by amending certain 
entries that are controlled for national security reasons in Categories 
1, 2, 3, 5 Part I (telecommunications), 5 Part II (information 
security), 6, 7, and 9; adding new entries to the Commerce Control List 
(CCL), and amending EAR Definitions, as well as adding definitions.
    The purpose of this final rule is to revise the CCL and definitions 
of terms used in the EAR to implement Wassenaar List revisions that 
were agreed upon in the December 2007 Wassenaar Arrangement Plenary 
Meeting and the Wassenaar List provisions regarding solar cells agreed 
upon in the December 2006 plenary meeting.
    This rule also adds or expands unilateral U.S. export controls and 
national security export controls on certain items to make them 
consistent with the amendments made to implement the Wassenaar 
Arrangement's decisions.

DATES: Effective Date: This rule is effective October 14, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In July 1996, the United States and thirty-three other countries 
gave final approval to the establishment of a new multilateral export 
control arrangement called the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls 
for Conventional Arms and Dual Use Goods and Technologies (Wassenaar 
Arrangement or WA). The Wassenaar Arrangement contributes to regional 
and international security and stability by promoting transparency and 
greater responsibility in transfers of conventional arms and dual use 
goods and technologies, thus preventing destabilizing accumulations of 
such items. Participating states have committed to exchange information 
on exports of dual use goods and technologies to non-participating 
states for the purposes of enhancing transparency and assisting in 
developing common understandings of the risks associated with the 
transfers of these items.

Expanded or New Export Controls

    This rule imposes new or expanded NS Column 1 controls. This rule 
imposes a license requirement pursuant to section 742.4(a) of the EAR 
for exports and reexports to all destinations, except Canada, of 
certain commodities (and related software and technology) described in 
Export Control Classification Number 9A012.b.4 (certain air breathing 
reciprocating or rotary internal combustion type engines). This rule 
also imposes such a license requirement for certain software and 
technology controlled under ECCN 3D001 and 3E001 related to the 
development or production of certain solar cells, cell-interconnect-
coverglass (CIC) assemblies, solar panels, and solar arrays. These 
destinations have an ``X'' indicated in NS column 1 on the Commerce 
Country Chart of Supplement No. 1 to Part 738. The purpose of the 
controls is to ensure that these items do not make a contribution to 
the military potential of any other country or combination of countries 
that would prove detrimental to the national security of the United 
States. For designated terrorism supporting countries or embargoed 
countries, the applicable licensing policies are found in Parts 742 and 
746 of the EAR, and Supplement No. 1 to Part 736 of the EAR for Syria.
    This rule imposes new or expands NS Column 2 controls. This rule 
imposes a license requirement under section 742.4(a) of the EAR for 
exports and reexports of commodities (and related software and 
technology) described in ECCNs 1A006 (Equipment, specially designed or 
modified for the disposal of improvised explosive devices, and 
specially designed components and accessories therefor), 1A007 
(Equipment and devices, specially designed to initiate charges and 
devices containing energetic materials, by electrical means), 
3A001.e.4, solar cells, cell-interconnect-coverglass (CIC) assemblies, 
solar panels, and solar arrays which are ``space qualified,'' having an 
average efficiency exceeding 20% at an operating temperature of 301 K 
(28 [deg]C) under simulated ``air mass zero'' illumination with an 
irradiance of 1,367 watts per square meter, and 3C002.e (all resists 
designed or optimized for use with imprint lithography equipment 
specified by 3B001.f.2. that use either a thermal or photo-curable 
process) to destinations other than Country Group A:1, cooperating 
countries (see Supplement No. 1 to Part 740 of the EAR), Bulgaria, 
Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, 
Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. This NS column 2 license requirement 
applies to destinations that have an ``X'' indicated in NS column 2

[[Page 60911]]

on the Commerce Country Chart of Supplement No. 1 to Part 738 of the 
EAR. The purpose of the controls is to ensure that these items do not 
make a contribution to the military potential of countries in Country 
Group D:1 that would prove detrimental to the national security of the 
United States. For designated terrorism supporting countries or 
embargoed countries, the applicable licensing policies are found in 
Parts 742 and 746 of the EAR, and Supplement No. 1 to Part 736 of the 
EAR for Syria.
    The licensing policy for national security controlled items 
exported or reexported to any country except a country in Country Group 
D:1 (see Supplement No. 1 to Part 740 of the EAR) is to approve license 
applications unless there is a significant risk that the items will be 
diverted to a country in Country Group D:1. The general policy for 
exports and reexports of items to Country Group D:1 is to approve 
license applications when BIS determines, on a case by case basis, that 
the items are for civilian use or would otherwise not make a 
significant contribution to the military potential of the country of 
destination that would prove detrimental to the national security of 
the United States.
    This rule imposes new or expands anti terrorism (AT) controls. This 
rule imposes a unilateral U.S. license requirement to export and 
reexport commodities (and related software and technology) controlled 
under ECCNs 1A006 (Equipment, specially designed or modified for the 
disposal of improvised explosive devices, and specially designed 
components and accessories therefor), 1A007 (Equipment and devices, 
specially designed to initiate charges and devices containing energetic 
materials, by electrical means), 3A001.e.4 solar cells, cell-
interconnect-coverglass (CIC) assemblies, solar panels, and solar 
arrays as described above, 3A991.o solar cells, cell-interconnect-
coverglass (CIC) assemblies, solar panels, and solar arrays which are 
``space qualified'' and not controlled by 3A001.e.4, 3C002.e (all 
resists designed or optimized for use with imprint lithography 
equipment specified by 3B001.f.2. that use either a thermal or photo-
curable process), and 9A012.b.4 (certain air breathing reciprocating or 
rotary internal combustion type engines) for AT reasons to Cuba, Iran, 
North Korea, Sudan and Syria, in addition to the national security 
controls imposed to implement the Wassenaar Arrangement's decisions. 
These unilateral export controls are necessary because under Section 
6(j) of the Export Administration Act of 1979 a license is required for 
items that could make a significant contribution to the military 
potential of such country or that could enhance the ability of such 
country to support acts of international terrorism. There is a general 
policy of denial for applications to export or reexport to terrorism 
supporting countries, as set forth in Part 742 of the EAR. In addition, 
certain of these countries are also subject to embargoes, as set forth 
in Part 746 of the EAR and Supplement No. 1 to Part 736 of the EAR for 
Syria. A license is also required for the export and reexport of these 
items to specially designated terrorists and foreign terrorist 
organizations, as set forth in Part 744 of the EAR; license 
applications to these parties are reviewed under a general policy of 
denial.

Task Force on Editorial Issues (TFEI)

    The Wassenaar Arrangement Task Force on Editorial Issues (TFEI) 
made revisions, editorial in nature, to clarify or correct control text 
or remove extraneous text. The TFEI revisions (over 2,000) were agreed 
upon by the WA in December 2007. This rule implements only those TFEI 
revisions that coincide with the revisions to ECCNs affected by the 
2007 WA agreements. Other TFEI revisions will be implemented in a 
separate rule.

Revisions to the Commerce Control List

    This rule revises a number of entries on the Commerce Control List 
(CCL) to implement the December 2007 agreed revisions to the Wassenaar 
List of Dual Use Goods and Technologies. This rule also revises 
language to provide a complete or more accurate description of controls 
in certain ECCNs. A description of the specific amendments to the CCL 
pursuant to the December 2007 Wassenaar Agreement is provided below. 
Newly added ECCNs, as described below, are as follows: 1A006 and 1A007. 
The amended ECCNs, as described below, are 1A004, 1E001, 1E201, 2B001, 
2B002, 2B006, 2B007, 2B008, 3A001, 3A002, 3A229, 3B001, 3C002, 3C005, 
3C006, 3D001, 3E001, 5A001, 5A002, 6A001, 6A005, 6A995, 7A002, 7A003, 
7A008, 9A012, and 9E003.

Category 1 Materials, Chemicals, ``Microorganisms,'' and Toxins

    ECCN 1A004 (Protective and detection equipment and components) is 
amended by:
    a. Revising the Related Definitions paragraph of the List of Items 
Controlled section to move the definition for ``adapted for use in 
war'' from a Note in ECCN 1A004 to the Related Definitions paragraph, 
and adding a new definition for ``riot controls agents'' to clarify the 
meaning of these terms as they are used in the control parameters of 
this entry;
    b. Revising paragraphs 1A004.a (gas masks, filter canisters and 
decontamination equipment), 1A004.b (protective suits, gloves and 
shoes), and 1A004.c (Nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) detection 
systems), to specifically list the agents and materials this equipment 
is designed or modified to defend against that would cause this 
equipment to be classified under this entry; and
    c. Replacing the last Note of ECCN 1A004 with Technical Notes 1 and 
2 to provide additional information about what ECCN 1A004 includes and 
does not include, as well as providing a technical definition of the 
term `simulant'.
    ECCN 1A006 is added to the CCL to control ``Equipment, specially 
designed or modified for the disposal of improvised explosive devices, 
and specially designed components and accessories therefor.''
    Rationale: This ECCN is added to prevent potential terrorists from 
discovering how to defeat the devices and ensure they are used only by 
properly vetted end-users.
    ECCN 1A007 is added to the CCL to control ``Equipment and devices, 
specially designed to initiate charges and devices containing energetic 
materials, by electrical means''
    Rationale: This ECCN is added to prevent potential terrorists from 
obtaining such devices and ensure they are used by properly vetted end-
users.
    ECCN 1E001 (development or production technology) is amended by:
    a. Adding two new ECCNs 1A006 and 1A007 to the heading to control 
the ``development'' and ``production'' technology for those 
commodities; and
    b. Revising the NS and NP controls to harmonize with the newly 
added ECCNs.
    ECCN 1E201 (use technology) is amended by:
    a. Adding 1A007 to the heading to control the ``use'' technology 
for NP reasons because 3A232.a was moved to 1A007.a and 1A007.b 
overlaps with 3A229; and
    b. Revising the NP controls to clarify that NP applies only to 
those portions of the ECCNs that are controlled for NP reasons.

Category 2 Materials Processing

    Technical Notes for 2B001 to 2B009 are amended by removing Notes 5 
and 6, and adding new Notes 5 and 6 to

[[Page 60912]]

harmonize with the Wassenaar Arrangement's Technical Notes.
    ECCN 2B001 (Machine tools) is amended by:
    a. Revising the Heading to add ``as follows'' to harmonize with the 
Wassenaar Arrangement's List;
    b. Redesignating Related Controls, Notes 1 through 3, as Related 
Controls Notes 2 through 4, and adding a new Note 1 to reference ECCN 
2B002 for optical finishing machines;
    c. Removing the word ``parts'' and adding an ``or'' after paragraph 
c in Note 2 at the beginning of the items paragraph of the List of 
Items Controlled section as part of the TFEI revisions, because the 
word ``parts'' is superfluous;
    d. Removing a comma and the word ``characteristics'' from 2B001.a 
as part of the TFEI revisions, to correct the punctuation and remove a 
superfluous word;
    e. Replacing the words ``the production of'' with ``producing'', 
removing the word ``characteristics'', and changing the outline format 
of the paragraphs from numeric to alphabetic, and in the Note to 
2B001.a as part of the TFEI revisions to improve clarity and 
readability of this entry;
    f. Removing a comma and the word ``characteristics'' from 2B001.b, 
2B001.b.4, and 2B001.c, as part of the TFEI revisions to correct 
punctuation and remove a superfluous word;
    g. Replacing the numeric outline with an alphabetic outline, adding 
a comma and the word ``of'' and removing the word ``characteristics'' 
in paragraph (a) in the Notes to 2B001.c as part of the TFEI revisions 
to improve clarity and readability;
    h. Adding a comma and removing the word ``characteristics'' to 
2B001.e as part of the TFEI revisions to correct punctuation and remove 
superfluous word;
    i. Replacing the word ``which'' with ``and all of the following'' 
in 2B001.e.2 as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the entry;
    j. Removing the word ``have'' and capitalizing the word ``A'' in 
2B001.e.2.b as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the entry; and
    k. Replacing the parameter ``5,000 mm'' with ``5 m'' in 2B001.f as 
part of the TFEI revisions to harmonize with Wassenaar style.
    ECCN 2B002 (Numerically controlled machine tools using a 
magnetorheological finishing (MRF) process) is amended by:
    a. Removing a comma and adding the phrase ``for selective material 
removal'' to the heading to better distinguish finishing tools that 
only remove material from selected locations as opposed to polishing 
tools that are used to improve the finish of an entire surface;
    b. Adding a definition for the two new terms ``inflatable membrane 
tool finishing'' and ``Fluid jet finishing'' to the Related Definitions 
paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section for reasons explained 
in the Rationale below;
    c. Revising the number of axes from ``three'' to ``four'' in 
2B002.c section for reasons explained in the Rationale below;
    d. Adding single quotes around the terms listed in 2B002.d.1 
`Magnetorheological finishing (MRF)' and d.2 `Electrorheological 
finishing (ERF)', because these terms are defined within this ECCN; and
    e. Replacing the period with a semi-colon in 2B002.d.3; and adding 
two new finishing processes: `Inflatable membrane tool finishing' and 
`Fluid jet finishing' in 2B002.d.4 and 2B002.d.5 respectively, for 
reasons explained in the Rationale below.
    Rationale: A common element of finishing machines is that the 
finishing tool is relatively small compared to the workpiece and makes 
contact over a small area within the aperture of the workpiece 
(typically an optical component) at any one point in time, as opposed 
to traditional finishing/polishing tools that make contact over a large 
area of the workpiece surface. For this reason, the terms `sub-aperture 
finishing' and `small tool' are sometimes used to describe these 
machines. Some examples of tools using sub-aperture/small tool 
processes are Magnetorheological Finishing (MRF), Eletrorheological 
Finishing (ERF), the Loh AII and Zeeko inflatable membrane, and fluid 
jet finishing machines. These machines use multiple axes (3-7) to 
manipulate the finishing tool and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) 
software to coordinate the axes.
    Many of the applications of such machines are for flat or spherical 
components and the software could be restricted to this capability 
allowing export of less capable machines. These machines use 
proprietary software capable of producing aspheres or freeform 
surfaces. However, this software does not have to be part of the 
machine controller, but can be a standalone item that creates a CNC 
program for the finishing machine.
    The free transfer of finishing machines to countries of concern 
would give those countries an improved ability to produce military 
critical optical components. An optical finishing machine can produce 
equal or better quality aspheric optics than controlled diamond turning 
machines or high precision grinders, and can also produce freeform 
optics such as wavefront plates and conformal windows. The numerical 
control provides the ability to produce aspheric and non-spherical 
optics in minutes to hours as opposed to days of highly skilled labor 
for manual production. It is for this reason that inflatable membrane 
tool finishing and fluid jet finishing processes are being added to the 
CCL.
    ECCN 2B006 (Dimensional inspection or measuring systems and 
equipment) is amended by:
    a. Adding a Note under the Nuclear non-Proliferation (NP) controls 
in the License Requirements section, stating ``NP applies to measuring 
systems in 2B006.b.1.c that maintain, for at least 12 hours, over a 
temperature range of 1 K around a standard temperature and 
at a standard pressure, all of the following: A ``resolution'' over 
their full scale of 0.1 [mu]m or less (better); and a ``measurement 
uncertainty'' equal to or less (better) than (0.2 + L/2,000) [mu]m (L 
is the measured length in mm).''
    Rationale: The Nuclear Suppliers Group has not adopted the 
revisions pertaining to measuring systems in 2B006.b.1.c that the 
Wassenaar Arrangement has adopted. Therefore, these measuring systems 
are controlled for nuclear non-proliferation reasons when they meet the 
criteria that were in place prior to the publication of this rule, 
which are outlined in the newly added NP note.
    b. Adding single quotes around the term `Linear displacement' in 
2B006.b.1 and replacing the double quotes with single quotes around the 
same term as it appears in the technical note to 2B006.1, as part of 
the TFEI revisions, because the term is defined in this ECCN;
    c. Removing the word ``characteristics'' from 2B006.b.1.b as part 
of the TFEI revisions to remove a superfluous word;
    d. Removing the word ``or'' from 2B006.b.1.b.2 as part of the TFEI 
revisions for clarity;
    e. Revising the temperature parameter in 2B006.b.1.c.2, as 
explained in the Rationale below;
    f. Revising the `measurement uncertainty' parameter in 
2B006.b.1.c.2.b, as explained in the Rationale below;
    g. Replacing the period with a semi-colon in 2B006.b.1.d as part of 
the TFEI revisions to correct the punctuation; and
    h. Adding a Note following paragraph 2B006.c that states, ``Machine 
tools, which can be used as measuring

[[Page 60913]]

machines, are controlled if they meet or exceed the criteria specified 
for the machine tool function or the measuring machine function.'' to 
conform to the Wassenaar List.
    Rationale: Studies into laser interferometers concluded that the 
value of the measurement uncertainty in 2B006.b.1.c.2.b includes taking 
into account the refractive index of air in order to achieve a 
measurement uncertainty of 0.2 + L/2,000 [mu]m. Lasers used in these 
systems are now extremely stable and contribute very little to the 
overall measurement uncertainty, whereas the compensation for 
environmental conditions contribute approximately 4/5 towards the 
systems measurement uncertainty. Therefore it is important to 
acknowledge that the system measurement uncertainty includes 
compensation for the refractive index of air.
    The reference to standard pressure in 2B006.b.1.c.2 has been 
removed as this would be difficult to achieve when testing longer 
ranges, and compensating for the refractive index of air negates this 
requirement. However, reference to temperature remains as it has an 
effect on the systems optics as well as the refractive index of air and 
contributes to the 0.2[mu]m component of the measurement uncertainty.
    The term `capable of achieving' in 2B006.b.1.c.2.b has been 
introduced to avoid laser interferometer systems being exported with 
poor environmental sensors in the compensation units, resulting in 
measurement uncertainty values outside the control parameters, which 
could then be replaced with compensator units with good environment 
sensors, making the system's measurement uncertainty as good as or 
better than those of the control parameters after export.
    ECCN 2B007 (Robots) is amended by:
    a. Replacing the double quotes with single quotes around the term 
`scene analysis' in 2B007.a and the Technical Note that follows, as 
part of the TFEI revisions, because this term is a definition defined 
within ECCN 2B007, instead of a global definition in part 772 of the 
EAR;
    b. Adding the word ``potentially'' to 2B007.b and adding a Note 
after 2B007 that excludes robots specially designed for paint-spraying 
booths from control in this entry. The reason for this change is 
explained in the rationale below; and
    c. Changing the NP controls from ``2B007.b and 2B007.c and to 
specially designed controllers and `end effectors' therefore'' to 
``equipment that meets or exceeds the criteria in ECCNs 2B207.''
    Rationale: Robots which can be used for a military purpose and 
should be controlled are those with the capability of handling high 
explosives in potentially explosive atmospheres. To make the meaning of 
`explosive munitions environments' clear, the term ``potentially'' is 
added before `explosive munitions environments'. In addition, a new 
Note to decontrol robots specially designed for paint-spraying booths 
is added. A spraying robot alone is not considered to be a military 
concern, and today spraying robots are widely used in automobile 
manufacturing.
    ECCN 2B008 (Assemblies or units, specially designed for machine 
tools, or dimensional inspection or measuring systems and equipment) is 
amended by:
    a. Revising the reference in the Nota Bene (N.B.) following 2B008.a 
for laser systems from ``Note to 2B006.b.1'' to ``2B006.b.1.c and d.'' 
to conform with linear laser systems in 2B006; and
    b. Revising the reference in the Nota Bene (N.B.) following 2B008.b 
for laser systems from ``Note to 2B006.b.1'' to ``2B006.b.2'' to 
conform with rotary systems in 2B006.

Category 3 Electronics

    ECCN 3A001 (Electronic components) is amended by:
    a. Adding the phrase ``and specially designed components therefor'' 
to the heading to match the heading with the scope of the entry as part 
of the TFEI revisions;
    b. Revising the GBS paragraph of the License Exceptions section to 
fix a typographical error, i.e., ``TWAS'' to ``TWTAs'';
    c. Revising the Note 2 in the Related Controls paragraph of the 
List of Items Controlled section to harmonize it with the revisions to 
the Items paragraph of this ECCN;
    d. Removing the second and third sentences in the ``Related 
Definitions'' paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section to 
harmonize it with the revisions to the Items paragraph of this ECCN;
    e. Removing paragraph 3A001.e.1.c (space qualified and radiation 
hardened photovoltaic arrays) in the ``items'' paragraph of the List of 
Items Controlled section to move controls to a more appropriate 
location in e.4, because batteries and photovoltaic devices reflect 
different technologies;
    f. Adding a new paragraph 3A001.e.4 and related technical note to 
the ``items'' paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section to 
explicitly list solar cells, cell-interconnect-coverglass (CIC) 
assemblies, solar panels, and solar arrays in order to remove any 
ambiguity in the control of these technologies.
    g. Removing ``neural network integrated circuits'' from 3A001.a.2, 
which removes the overlapping control between 3A001.a.2 and 3A001.a.9;
    h. Replacing the period with a semi-colon in 3A001.a.5.a.5 to 
correct the punctuation as part of the TFEI revisions;
    i. Adding a comma and an ``and'' to 3A001.a.6 as part of the TFEI 
revisions to clarify the meaning of the sentence;
    j. Adding single quotes around the term `field programmable logic 
devices' as part of the TFEI revisions to indicate that the definition 
for this term is located in this entry;
    k. Revising the type of note from N.B. to Technical Note after the 
Note to 3A001.a.7 to correct the type of note and to add single quotes 
around the term `field programmable logic devices' as part of the TFEI 
revisions to indicate that the definition for this term is located in 
this entry;
    l. Replacing the words ``which meets'' with ``and having'' and 
removing the word ``characteristics'' from Note 1 to 3A001.b.1 and from 
paragraph b of Note 2 to 3A001.b.1 as part of the TFEI revisions to 
clarify the entry;
    m. Replacing the words ``which meets'' with ``having'' and removing 
the word ``characteristics'' from Note 2 to 3A001.b.1 as part of the 
TFEI revisions to clarify the entry;
    n. Adding the word ``Tubes'' to 3A001.b.1.a.1 and 3A001.b.1.a.2 as 
part of the TFEI revisions to better describe the commodities;
    o. Replacing the word ``with'' with ``having'' and removing the 
word ``characteristics'' in 3A001.b.1.a.4 as part of the TFEI revisions 
to clarify the entry;
    p. Adding initial capitalization and double quotes around the term 
``Monolithic Integrated Circuit'' as part of the TFEI revisions because 
it is an acronym and a defined term in part 772;
    q. Adding the words ``solid state'' and a comma after amplifiers in 
3A001.b.4 to clarify the text, as described in the Rationale below;
    Rationale for g. through q. above: In 2003 it was agreed by the 
Wassenaar Arrangement to update the control text for microwave solid 
state amplifiers and include text for assemblies containing these 
amplifiers. The existing control text, as written, goes beyond the 
original intent to control microwave assemblies/modules containing 
solid state amplifiers and can be interpreted to control traveling wave 
tube amplifiers, which are to be controlled as described in 3A001.b.8. 
The addition of the words solid state to describe the type of 
amplifiers contained in the microwave assembly will eliminate this 
interpretation.

[[Page 60914]]

    r. Adding double quotes around the term ``fractional bandwidth'' in 
3A001.b.4.f.2 as part of the TFEI revisions, because this is a global 
definition found in part 772;
    s. Replacing the period with a semi-colon in 3A001.b.4.f.3 as part 
of the TFEI revisions to correct the punctuation;
    t. Adding an ``and'' in 3A001.b.5 as part of the TFEI revisions to 
add clarity to the sentence;
    u. Removing the words ``Mixers and'' and adding the words ``and 
harmonic mixers,'' and adding a reference to ``3A002.d'' in 3A001.b.7, 
as explained in the Rationale below;
    Rationale: As a consequence of the deletion of subparagraph 
3A001.b.6 in December 2003, there is ambiguity regarding the 
distinction between ``mixers'' ``converters'' in 3A001.b.7. Prior to 
December 2003, generic mixers as standalone components were controlled 
in then-3A001.b.6 (microwave assemblies 31.8 GHz). As part 
of the deletion of 3A001.b.6, there was a deliberate decision to 
release controls on mixers that are standalone components. Thus, 
retention of the word ``mixers'' in 3A001.b.7 is confusing, and best 
modified with the term ``harmonic mixers,'' because such mixers are 
typically used to extend the frequency range of systems described in 
3A002.c, 3A002.d, 3A002.e, and 3A002.f.
    v. Revising the reference in 3A001.b.8 from reading ``3A001.b'' to 
read ``3A001.b.1'' to correct the reference;
    w. Adding double quotes around ``monolithic integrated circuit'', 
removing a comma, adding an ``and'', and removing the word 
``characteristics'' in 3A001.b.9 as part of the TFEI revisions to 
clarify the entry and make it clear that ``monolithic integrated 
circuit'' is a global definition in part 772 of the EAR;
    x. Adding single quotes around the term `turn-on time' in 
3A001.b.9.a and Technical Note 2 following paragraph 3A001.b.9.c.2 as 
part of the TFEI revision, because this term is defined in this entry;
    y. Adding the word ``having'' in 3A001.b.9.c and 3A001.g.2 as part 
of the TFEI revisions to clarify the entry;
    z. Removing the word ``having'' from 3A001.b.9.c.2 as part of the 
TFEI revisions to clarify the entry;
    aa. Removing the word ``control'' from Technical Note 1 following 
paragraph 3A001.b.9.c.2 as part of the TFEI revisions, because the word 
is superfluous;
    bb. Replacing a semi-colon with a comma in Technical Note 2 
following paragraph 3A001.b.9.c.2 to fix the punctuation as part of the 
TFEI revisions;
    cc. Removing commas before and after ``as follows'' in 3A001.c. to 
fix punctuation as part of TFEI revisions;
    dd. Revising the frequency from ``2.5 GHz'' to ``6 GHz'' in 
3A001.c.1.a and 3A001.c.1.b, as explained in the rationale below;
    ee. Removing the comma in 3A001.c.1.b as part of the TFEI 
revisions;
    ff. Removing a comma and adding an ``and'' in 3A001.c.1.c and 
3A001.e.3 as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the entry;
    gg. Revising the bandwidth from ``50 MHz'' to ``100 MHz'' in 
3A001.c.1.c.3, as explained in the Rationale below;
    hh. Revising the frequency from ``1 GHz'' to ``2.5 GHz'' in 
3A001.c.2, as explained in the Rationale below;
    Rationale: Use of acoustic wave devices in civilian application is 
indeed becoming predominant between 1 and 6 GHz. However, they usually 
do not require high rejection and/or high bandwidth. Therefore, this 
rule has changed the frequency upper limit in paragraphs 3A001.c.1.a 
and 3A001.c.1.b to 6 GHz without changing bandwidth or rejection. Below 
1 GHz, there is an increasing civilian need for bandwidth of 100 MHz, 
but once again, these civilian applications do not usually require high 
rejection. Bulk acoustic wave devices above 2.5 GHz are considered 
military significant (e.g., S-band and X-band radar). Therefore this 
rule has limited the frequency extension to 2.5 GHz, allowing the 
exclusion of most of the items used only in civilian applications (2.4 
GHz and below) from control in this entry.
    ii. Adding a comma after ``materials'' and replacing ``with'' with 
``and having'' in 3A001.d as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the 
entry;
    jj. Removing the comma in 3A001.e as part of the TFEI revisions to 
correct the punctuation of the entry;
    kk. Adding single quotes around the term `Cells' and removing the 
comma in 3A001.e.1 as part of the TFEI revisions to indicate that 
`cells' are defined in the entry and to clarify the entry;
    ll. Adding single quotes around the terms `primary cells' and 
`energy density' in 3A001.e.1.a, 3A001.e.1.b and Technical Note 1 as 
part of the TFEI revisions, because these terms are defined in the 
entry;
    mm. Adding the abbreviation of ``Ah'' for the term ``ampere-hours'' 
in Technical Note 1 after paragraph 3A001.e.1.b as part of the TFEI 
revisions to clarify the entry;
    nn. Replacing ``and'' with ``an'' in front of ``electrolyte'' in 
Technical Note 2 after paragraph 3A001.e.1.b to correct grammar as part 
of the TFEI revisions;
    oo. Removing a comma from 3A001.e.2 as part of the TFEI revisions 
to correct the punctuation in the entry;
    pp. Adding an ``and'' to 3A001.e.2.a and 3A001.e.2.b as part of the 
TFEI revisions to clarify the entry;
    qq. Adding a comma after ``solenoids'' and replacing a comma with 
``and'' in 3A001.e.3 as part of the TEFI revisions; and, replacing a 
period with a semi-colon at the end of 3A001.f.2 as part of the TEFI 
revisions;
    rr. Adding single quotes around the term `thyristor modules' and a 
comma after this term in 3A001.g as part of the TFEI revisions to 
indicate that these modules are defined in the entry, and replacing a 
comma with an ``and'' as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the 
entry;
    ss. Correcting the numbering of the paragraphs in 3A001.g;
    tt. Adding ``having'' in 3A001.g.2 as part of the TFEI revisions to 
clarify the entry; and
    uu. Adding single quotes around the term `thyristor modules' in 
Note 2 to 3A001.g as part of the TFEI revisions to indicate that these 
modules are defined in the entry, and to clarify the entry.
    ECCN 3A002 (General purpose electronic equipment) is amended by:
    a. Revising the heading to implement the TFEI to clarify the scope 
of the entry;
    b. Revising a reference to ``3A002.g.2'' to read ``3A002.g.1'' in 
the Related Controls paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section 
to correct this paragraph reference;
    c. Removing a comma and adding an ``and'' to 3A002.a.3, 3A002.a.4, 
and 3A002.a.6, as well as removing commas from 3A002.a, as part of the 
TFEI revisions to clarify the entry;
    d. Adding single quotes around the term `continuous throughput' in 
3A002.a.5.b and 3A002.a.b.6 as part of the TFEI revisions, because it 
is a defined term within the Technical Note that follows this 
paragraph;
    e. Revising ``Technical Note'' to read ``Technical Notes'' and 
separating the technical note that follows 3A002.a.5.b into two 
separate Technical Notes and adding single quotes around `continuous 
throughput' as part of the TFEI revisions, for the purpose of clarity;
    f. Adding double quotes around ``signal analyzers'' in the Note 
that follows 3A002.b, as part of the TFEI revisions, because this is a 
global term that is defined in part 772 of the EAR;
    g. Adding a hyphen between the words ``radio'' and ``frequency'' 
and

[[Page 60915]]

removing a comma in 3A002.c, as part of the TFEI revisions to add 
clarity;
    h. Adding single quotes around the term `pulse duration' in 
3A002.d.1 to indicate this is defined within this ECCN, as part of the 
TFEI revisions;
    i. Removing ``the term'' from Note 1 after 3A002.d.4 as part of the 
TFEI revisions to remove superfluous words;
    j. Revising 3A002.g (atomic frequency standards) to make 
adjustments based on technical advancements in this area, as explained 
in the Rationale below;
    Rationale: Precision timing sources enable precision navigation and 
precision sensor array synchronization. Miniaturized precision timing 
sources are a potential enabling technology for small unmanned 
vehicles. Miniaturization has also transformed the applications for 
which rubidium standards can be used. Advances in technology have now 
made possible very small atomic clocks--which happen also to be based 
on energy state transitions of rubidium. Unfortunately, the control 
text in Category 3 did not anticipate the new technology and 
specifically exempted all so-called ``rubidium clocks'' that are not 
space-qualified from control, thus decontrolling atomic clocks and 
technology of concern. This revision to 3A002.g is intended to avoid 
capturing rubidium clocks, which are based on the older lamp-pumped 
technology, because those clocks require more power to operate. This 
revision is also intended to control emerging technology (so-called 
coherent population trapping (CPT) technique or laser-pumped gas cell 
technique) that has far more significant military applications.
    ECCN 3A229 (Firing Sets) is amended by revising the Related 
Controls paragraph to add a reference to 1E001 for ``development'' and 
``production'' technology and 1E201 for ``use'' technology.
    ECCN 3A232 (Detonators and multipoint initiation systems) is 
amended by:
    a. Redesignating Related Controls notes 1 and 2 to 2 and 3, and 
adding a new note 1 that reads ``See 1A007 for electrically driven 
explosive detonators.''; and
    b. Removing and reserving 3A232.a and all but the last sentence of 
the technical note, because electrically driven explosive detonators 
are now controlled in ECCN 1A007.
    ECCN 3B001 (Equipment for manufacturing of semiconductor devices or 
materials, and specially designed components and accessories therefore) 
is amended by:
    a. Removing a comma from the heading as part of the TFEI revisions 
to correct punctuation;
    b. Adding initial capitalization to the term `Metal Organic 
Chemical Vapor Deposition' in 3B001.a.2 as part of the TFEI revisions 
to correct format and to indicate the meaning of the acronym MOCVD;
    c. Removing a comma and adding an `and' to 3B001.b and 3B001.f.1 as 
part of the TFEI revisions to correct grammar;
    d. Adding `Chemical Vapor Deposition' in front of the acronym (CVD) 
in 3B001.d as part of the TFEI revisions to add clarity;
    e. Removing the comma after ``equipment'' in 3B001.f. as part of 
the TFEI revisions to add clarity;
    f. Removing a comma and adding an ``and'' in 3B001.f.1. as part of 
the TFEI revisions to add clarity;
    g. Adding single quotes around `minimum resolvable feature size' in 
3B001.f.1.b and in the Technical Note that follows, to indicate that 
this term is defined in the Technical Note that follows that paragraph;
    h. Revising 3B001.f.3 (equipment specially designed for mask making 
or semiconductor device processing) to clarify the scope of the 
control;
    i. Adding a comma to 3B001.g as part of the TFEI revisions, to 
correct the punctuation; and
    j. Replacing the period with a semi-colon at the end of 3B001.h as 
part of the TFEI revisions to correct the punctuation.
    ECCN 3C002 (Resist materials) is amended by:
    a. Revising the heading as part of the TFEI revisions, to clarify 
the scope of the entry; and
    b. Revising the reference to ``3C002.b through .d'' to read 
``3C002.b through .e'' in the eligibility paragraphs for License 
Exceptions GBS and CIV to reflect the new paragraph 3C002.e; and
    c. Adding a new paragraph 3C002.e to control ``all resists designed 
or optimized for use with imprint lithography equipment specified by 
3B001.f.2 that use either a thermal or photo-curable process''.
    Rationale: With the tools used for imprint lithography now being 
controlled as a result of the 2006 Wassenaar Arrangement agreements, 
for completeness, the resists materials used with these controlled 
tools are being controlled through this new paragraph 3C002.e. Resists 
for imprint lithography equipment is now controlled in the same manner 
as controls on optical lithography equipment. Resists are indispensable 
materials for the exposure process in semiconductor manufacturing. 
These semiconductors are used in many military items.
    ECCN 3C005 (Silicon carbide (SiC) wafers) is amended by revising 
the heading to add controls resulting from technical advancements and 
to make technical clarifications, as explained in the Rationale below.
    Rationale: Gallium nitride (GaN) transistors have demonstrated 
performance at power densities well beyond microwave transistors based 
on gallium arsenide (GaAs). Power levels achieved from GaN transistors 
have also exceeded by a factor of four to five those obtained from 
comparable GaAs transistors at frequencies up to 40 GHz.
    GaN substrates may also be used to produce high brightness Light-
Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and semiconductor blue laser diodes. The 
resistivity parameter (10,000 ohm-cm) of this ECCN was chosen to 
control GaN substrates and wafers used to produce microwave devices 
with significant military potential, while excluding GaN substrates and 
wafers for LED or diode production from control. Substrates for LED or 
diode production are generally lower in resistivity. Some substrates 
for commercial microwave products may be controlled under this 
revision.
    Aluminum nitride (AlN) substrates have also shown great promise as 
a substrate for the deposition of GaN epitaxial layers. They posses 
high thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion mismatch, as well as 
relatively low lattice mismatch with GaN, and have great potential for 
use in military high power microwave applications.
    It is also important to control the ingots and boules of SiC, GaN 
and AlN that have the resistivity of the wafers sliced from the ingots 
and boules. Otherwise, there would be a loop-hole in the controls. For 
this reason, ingots, boules and other preforms of those materials have 
been added to the Heading of this entry.
    This revision to ECCN 3C005 also makes a technical clarification, 
which is also applied to the new ECCN 3C006, noting that the 
resistivity parameter is a substrate resistivity measurement made at 
room temperature (20 [deg]C).
    ECCN 3C006 is added to control ``Substrates'' specified in 3C005 
with at least one epitaxial layer of silicon carbide, gallium nitride, 
aluminum nitride or aluminum gallium nitride.
    Rationale: A single layer of epitaxy that is of the same material 
as the substrate should be controlled, as this type of epitaxy (``homo-
epitaxy'') can be used to make RF devices. Presently, the CCL only 
controls epitaxy material, which is different than the substrate

[[Page 60916]]

material (``hetero-epitaxy''). The creation of ECCN 3C006 closes this 
loop-hole by controlling these substrates.
    ECCN 3D001 (Development and production software) is amended by 
changing Related Controls Notes 1 and 2 to conform to the new 3A001 
Related Controls for solar cells, cell-interconnect-coverglass (CIC) 
assemblies, solar panels, and solar arrays in order to remove any 
ambiguity in the control of these technologies.
    ECCN 3E001 (Development and production technology) is amended by:
    a. Revising the Heading to add ECCN 3A999 to the list of excluded 
ECCNs controlled by this entry, because this Wassenaar created ECCN did 
not intend to control ECCN 3A999 items;
    b. Revising the national security control text in the License 
Requirement section to add ECCN 3C006 in order to control the 
``development'' and ``production'' technology for this newly controlled 
commodity;
    c. Removing ``The term'' from the Technical Note in the Items 
paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section of 3E001, as part of 
the TFEI revisions, because these words are superfluous; and
    d. Revising Related Controls Note 2 to conform to the new 3A001 
Related Controls for solar cells, cell-interconnect-coverglass (CIC) 
assemblies, solar panels, and solar arrays in order to remove any 
ambiguity in the control of these technologies.

Category 5 Part I Telecommunications

    ECCN 5A001 (Telecommunications systems, equipment, and components) 
is amended by:
    a. Adding the words ``and accessories'' to the heading as part of 
the TFEI revisions, to more correctly state the scope of this entry;
    b. Replacing a period with a semi-colon in 5A001.a.3 as part of the 
TFEI revisions, to correct the punctuation;
    c. Revising 5A001.b.1 (underwater communications systems) by adding 
``untethered'' and by adding a new paragraph 5A001.b.1.d to control 
systems using lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) because of 
technical advancements for this type of equipment;
    Rationale: The existing control text in this entry was written 
years ago and was written with regard to underwater communications 
technologies which were known at the time. New technologies have 
emerged that are not specified by the current controls but which have 
capabilities similar to, or even exceeding, those currently specified. 
The addition of paragraph 5A001.b.1.d is necessary to close the 
loophole for underwater untethered optical communications using laser 
or LED.
    d. Removing the word ``characteristics'' from 5A001.b.1, 5A001.b.2, 
5A001.b.3, and 5A001.e as a part of the TFEI revisions because it is 
superfluous;
    e. Replacing a comma with the word ``and'' in 5A001.b.3 and 
5A001.b.4 as part of the TFEI revisions to correct the grammar;
    f. Replacing ``1.0 Watt'' with ``1 W'' in the Note to 5A001.b.3 as 
a part of the TFEI revisions, because this is the standard way of 
stating such a parameter;
    g. Adding single quotes around the term `voice coding' in 5A001.b.6 
and the Technical Note that follows as a part of the TFEI revisions 
because this term is defined within the entry;
    h. Adding single quotes around the term `proof test' in 5A001.c.1 
and the Technical Note that follows as part of the TFEI revisions 
because this term is defined within the entry;
    i. Adding a comma and replacing the period with a semi-colon in 
5A001.c.2 as part of the TFEI revisions to correct the punctuation;
    j. Replacing a period with a semi-colon in 5A001.d. as part of the 
TFEI revisions to correct punctuation;
    k. Adding initial capitalization to ``Microwave Landing Systems'' 
because it is followed by the acronym (MLS) in the Note to 5A001.d and 
replacing a period with a semi-colon as part of the TFEI revisions;
    l. Adding initial capitalization to ``Line Of Bearing'' because it 
is followed by the acronym (LOB) in 5A001.e.2, and replacing the period 
with a semi-colon to correct the punctuation as part of the TFEI 
revisions;
    m. Removing the word ``cellular'' from 5A001.f to account for 
technical advancements of this equipment;
    Rationale: Manufacturers are being asked to design jamming 
equipment for satellite telephony systems that are being used in 
warfare. The systems are not specially designed for military use. This 
equipment is not currently controlled by 5A001.f. These systems are 
being used by insurgents to command and control activity in conflict 
areas. Therefore, this revision to paragraph 5A001.f is made to expand 
the scope of control to include jammers for any mobile 
telecommunications device in order to prevent the users of the 
equipment from obtaining this type of jamming device, or related 
technology used to defeat it.
    n. Replacing a comma with an ``and'' in 5A001.f as part of the TFEI 
revisions to correct the grammar;
    o. Replacing a period with a semi-colon in 5A001.f.2. as part of 
the TFEI changes to correct punctuation;
    p. Adding the acronym (PCL) after Passive Coherent Location in 
5A001.g as part of the TFEI revisions as this is a commonly used 
acronym; and
    q. Adding ``or'' in the note to 5A001.g as part of the TFEI 
revisions to correct the format.

Category 5 Part 2 ``Information Security''

    ECCN 5A002 (``Information security'' systems, equipment and 
components) is amended by:
    a. Revising the Heading, as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify 
the scope of the entry;
    b. Adding the words ``any of'' in the heading of the Note to 5A002 
as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the heading;
    c. Adding ``having any of the following'' after the word ``cards'' 
in paragraph (a)(1) of the Note to 5A002 as part of the TFEI revisions 
to clarify the text;
    d. Replacing the reference to paragraph f with a reference to 
paragraph g in paragraph (a)(1) of the Note to 5A002 to harmonize this 
paragraph with the addition of a new paragraph g in the Note to 5A002;
    e. Adding single quotation marks around the term `money 
transactions' in paragraph d of the Note to 5A002;
    f. Replacing ``N.B.'' with ``Technical Note'' after paragraph 
5A002.d and replacing the double quotation marks with single quotation 
marks around the term `money transactions' in this Technical Note as 
part of the TFEI changes to add clarity to the text;
    g. Replacing the phrase ``that are not capable of end-to-end 
encryption'' with ``that are not capable of transmitting encrypted data 
directly to another radiotelephone or equipment (other than Radio 
Access Network (RAN) equipment), nor of passing encrypted data through 
RAN equipment (e.g., Radio Network Controller (RNC) or Base Station 
Controller (BSC))'' in paragraph e of the Note to 5A002 at the 
beginning of the items paragraph in the List of Items Controlled 
section;
    Rationale: This change in paragraph e of the Note to 5A002 
clarifies that portable handheld devices (such as 3G cellular phones) 
providing secure Web browser, e-mail and other encryption capability 
across networks such as the Internet are controlled by the Wassenaar 
Arrangement, unless they are otherwise decontrolled as `mass market' 
products

[[Page 60917]]

according to the provisions of the Cryptography Note (Note 3 of 
Category 5--Part 2). The technical language of this revised Note e 
clarifies that encrypted phone-to-server' (e.g., Internet) connections 
are treated the same as encrypted `phone-to-phone' connections. 
Meanwhile, portable handheld devices (such as 2G cellular phones) where 
encryption is limited to airlink encryption to base stations (RAN 
equipment) remain eligible for the provisions of Category 5--Part 2 
(ECCN 5A002) Note e.
    h. Adding a new paragraph g to the Note to 5A002 to exclude from 
ECCN 5A002 certain portable or mobile radiotelephones and similar 
client wireless devices for civil use, as well as adding an ``or'' to 
the end of the preceding paragraph f;
    Rationale: Paragraph g was added to 5A002 to make clear that mass 
market mobile devices that are adapted for a particular civil industry 
application, with features that do not involve any changes to the 
cryptographic functionality of the original device, are not intended to 
be controlled under ECCN 5A002. Examples of such customized products 
are CDMA/GSM/GPRS/Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11)/Bluetooth devices for the 
transportation (including automotive parts and equipment) and service 
industries, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and Pocket PCs for 
health care professionals, and wireless water/gas/electric utility 
meter readers. These customized products are not intended for retail 
sale to the general public, and therefore were not clearly excluded 
from control under previous Category 5 Part 2 text. However, the 
technical details of the original (non-customized) mass market 
platforms are not affected by such adaptations for a particular civil 
application operating over publicly accessible commercial networks.
    i. Adding initial capitalization to ``Global Navigation Satellite 
Systems'', adding the acronym (GNSS), and replacing the abbreviation 
``e.g.'' with ``i.e.'' in the Nota Bene (NB) after 5A002.a, as part of 
the TFEI revisions to clarify the entry;
    j. Adding an ``and'' in 5A002.a.1 as part of the TFEI revisions to 
clarify the entry;
    k. Adding an ``and'' and removing ``characteristics'' from 
5A002.a.6 as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the entry; and
    l. Adding initial capitalization to ``Quantum Key Distribution'' in 
Technical Note 2 after 5A002.a.9, as part of the TFEI revisions to 
clarify the term in the entry.

Category 6 Sensors

    ECCN 6A001 (Acoustics) is amended by:
    a. Revising the Heading as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify 
the scope of the entry;
    b. Removing a comma and adding an ``and'' in 6A001.a.1.a, as part 
of the TFEI revisions for clarity;
    c. Removing the word ``Being'' in 6A001.a.1.a.1, 6A001.a.1.a.2, and 
6A001.a.1.a.3, as part of the TFEI revisions for clarity;
    d. Removing a comma and adding an ``and'' in 6A001.a.1.c, as part 
of the TFEI revisions for clarity;
    e. Adding single quotes around the term `acoustic power density' in 
6A001.a.1.c.2 and the Technical Note that follows 6A001.a.1.c.2 to 
indicate that the term is defined within the entry, as well as 
correcting unit of measurement ``Mw'' to read ``mW'', as part of the 
TFEI revisions;
    f. Adding a comma in 6A001.a.1.d, as part of the TFEI revisions;
    g. Deleting the word ``characteristics'' from 6A001.a.2.a. as part 
of the TFEI revisions;
    h. Removing the ``or'' at the end of 6A001.a.2.a.3.a, as part of 
the TFEI revisions;
    i. Adding single quotes around the terms `Piezoelectric polymer 
films', `flexible piezoelectric composites', `hydrophone sensitivity' 
in 6A001.a.2.a.3.b, 6A001.a.2.a.3.c, and 6A001.a.2.a.4, respectively, 
to indicate these terms are defined within the entry, as part of the 
TFEI revisions;
    j. Removing the word ``When'' in 6A001.a.2.a.5, as part of the TFEI 
revisions for clarity;
    k. Adding single quotes around the term `hydrophone sensitivity' in 
Technical Note 3 that follows 6A001.a.2.a.6 to indicate that the term 
is defined in the entry, as part of the TFEI revisions;
    l. Replacing double quotation marks around the phrase ``able to be 
modified'' with single quotations marks in the Technical Note after 
6A001.a.2.b.2 as part of the TFEI revisions;
    m. Replacing the double quotes with single quotes around the term 
``able to be modified'' in the technical note after a.2.b.2, because 
the term is locally defined in the ECCN;
    n. Adding a comma after the word ``systems'' in 6A001.a.2.e as part 
of the TFEI changes to add clarity to the text;
    o. Removing and reserving paragraph 6A001.a.2.b.6 as explained in 
the Rationale below;
    Rationale: Paragraph 6A001.a.2.b.6 is removed because the depth 
control of the streamer itself, combined with the control on 
hydrophones that already exist in 6A001.a.2.b.2 are robust enough to 
cover the multiplexer module depth limit.
    p. Revising ``Correlation-velocity sonar log equipment'' to read 
``Correlation-velocity and Doppler-velocity sonar log equipment'', 
adding ``as follows'' to 6A001.b, and moving the parameter ``at 
distances between the carrier and the sea bed exceeding 500 m'' from 
6A001.b to a new paragraph 6A001.b.1.a as explained in the Rationale 
below;
    q. Adding two new paragraphs: 6A001.b.1 for correlation-velocity 
sonar log equipment, and 6A001.b.2 for doppler-velocity sonar 
equipment, as well as adding 2 new exclusion notes as explained in the 
Rationale below.
    Rationale: The revision to 6A001.b and the addition of 6A001.b.1 
and 6A001.b.2 were necessary because velocity sonar logs can be either 
correlation-velocity sonar logs (CVSL) or Doppler-velocity sonar logs 
(DVSL). They are being used increasingly in both commercial and 
military underwater applications. Although the specific techniques used 
by the CVSL and DVSL are different, they both determine the horizontal 
speed of surface vessels, underwater vehicles or swimmers in both fore 
and aft and athwartship (at right angles).
    ECCN 6A005 (Lasers) is amended by:
    a. Revising the citation ``6A005.b.2, b.3, or b.4'' to read 
``6A005.a.4, b.2, b.3, b.4'' in paragraph g of the License Requirements 
Note to correct an oversight; and
    b. Revising the text in the GBS and CIV paragraphs of the License 
Exception section to match the license exception eligibility in place 
prior to the November 5, 2007 Federal Register publication of the 2006 
Wassenaar implementation regulation (72 FR 62524) and to correct an 
error.
    Rationale: Dye and liquid lasers controlled by 6A005.c.3, except 
for a pulsed single longitudinal mode oscillator having an average 
output power exceeding 1W and a repetition 1 kHz if the pulse duration 
is less than 100 ns, were eligible for License Exception GBS and CIV 
prior to the 11/05/07 publication. When ECCN 6A005 was completely 
revised in the November 5, 2007 Federal Register publication these 
lasers were inadvertently removed from being eligible for License 
Exceptions GBS and CIV. This rule corrects that error.
    ECCN 6A995 is amended by correcting the reference ``6A995.e.1.b'' 
to read ``6A995.e.2.b'' in the Note following 6A995.e.2.b.

[[Page 60918]]

Category 7 Navigation and Avionics

    ECCN 7A002 (Gyros or angular rate sensors) is amended by replacing 
the term ``drift rate'' with ``bias'' in 7A002.a and 7A002.c.1 in the 
Items paragraph of the List of Items Controlled section, as explained 
below.
    Rationale: The ``bias'' component of ``drift rate'' is the error 
term that is usually listed on the manufacturer's specification sheets. 
Although ``drift rate'', ``stability'', and ``bias'' ``stability'' are 
sometimes used interchangeably, ``bias'' ``stability'' is more often 
used on the gyro data sheet.
    ECCN 7A003 (Inertial Systems and specially designed components 
therefor) is amended by:
    a. Adding the word ``navigation'' to the listed purposes: attitude, 
guidance or control in 7A003.a and 7A003.b for clarification;
    b. Adding double quotation marks around ``Circular Error Probable'' 
and ``CEP'' in 7A003.a.1 and 7A003.b as part of the TFEI changes to 
clarify the text;
    c. Removing the Technical Note 2 at the end of 7A003, and adding 
the definition for ``Circular Error Probable (``CEP'')'' to the 
definition section 772.1 of the EAR, because this term is used in both 
7A003 and 7A008;
    d. Revising certain terms used in 7A003.c and 7A003.c.1 to more 
commonly used terms, because removed terms are not usually specified on 
data sheets;
    e. Changing the ``e'' in ``equipment'' and the ``h'' in heading 
from upper case to lower case and deleting the word ``characteristics'' 
in 7A003.c. as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the text;
    f. Changing ``RMS'' and ``Heading'' from upper case to lower case 
in 7A003.c.1. as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the text;
    g. Replacing the period with a semi-colon in 7A003.a.2, b., and 
c.2, as part of the TFEI revisions to correct the punctuation;
    h. Deleting the comma after ``msec'' in 7A003.c.2. as part of the 
TFEI changes to clarify the text;
    i. Revising the outline format from numeric to alphabetic and 
adding the words ``all of'' in Note 1.a, as part of the TFEI revisions 
for clarity;
    j. Replacing ``half'', ``one and a half'' and ``three'' with 
numeric notation in Note 1.a. as part of the TFEI revision for clarity;
    k. Capitalizing ``Power Spectral Density'' to signify the acronym 
``PSD'' in Note 1.a.1. as part of the TFEI revision to clarify the 
text;
    l. Replacing ``A roll and yaw rate'' with ``An angular rate 
capability about one or more axes'' in Note 1.b in Note 1 to include 
pitch, as well as roll and yaw, and to clarify that angular rate 
capability is the parameter of concern; and
    m. Replacing references to ``1'' and ``2'' with ``a'' and ``b'' in 
new sub-entry ``c'' of Note 1 to conform with the changed outline 
format as part of the TFEI revisions.
    ECCN 7A008 (Underwater sonar navigation systems) is amended:
    a. Deleting the comma and adding ``and'' after ``source'' in the 
heading as part of the TFEI changes to clarify the text;
    b. Adding double quotes around the term ``Circular Error Probable 
(``CEP'') in the heading, because this rule adds this term to section 
772.1 of the EAR;
    c. Revising ``Correlation-velocity sonar log equipment'' to read 
``Correlation-velocity and Doppler-velocity sonar log equipment'' in 
the Nota Bene to correspond with the revision in 6A001.b.1.a.

Category 9 Propulsion Systems, Space Vehicles and Related Equipment

    ECCN 9A012 (Non-military ``unmanned aerial vehicles,'' (``UAVs''), 
associated systems, equipment and components) is amended by:
    a. Adding a comma to the Heading as part of the TFEI revisions to 
correct the punctuation;
    b. Replacing a period with a semi-colon in 9A012.a.2 and 9A012.b.3, 
as part of the TFEI revisions to correct the punctuation;
    c. Adding a comma after ``components'' in 9A012.b. as part of the 
TFEI revisions to correct the punctuation; and
    d. Adding a new paragraph 9A012.b.4 for ``Air breathing 
reciprocating or rotary internal combustion type engines * * *'' as 
explained in the Rationale below.
    Rationale: Paragraph 9A012.b.4 is added because commercial and 
military UAVs are increasingly used in a wider range of application 
types and in steadily increasing numbers. As a result, UAV engine 
designs have also broadened to include reciprocating systems. Modern 
reciprocating engine technology including use of turbochargers can 
enable UAVs to reach altitudes exceeding 60,000 feet.
    ECCN 9E003 (Other ``technology'') is amended by:
    a. Removing a comma in the Heading, as part of the TFEI revisions 
to correct the punctuation;
    b. Adding a comma and an ``and'' in 9E003.a.1, as part of the TFEI 
revisions for clarity;
    c. Replacing a period with a semi-colon in 9E003.a.3.c, as part of 
the TFEI revisions to correct the punctuation;
    d. Adding ``total (stagnation)'' and ``at sea-level static take-off 
(ISA) in a `steady state mode' of engine operation'' to 9E003.a.4 and 
9E003.a.5 for clarification, as well as adding a Technical Note to 
define the term `steady state mode' within the ECCN;
    e. Adding a comma in 9E003.b.2 as part of the TFEI revisions to 
correct the punctuation;
    f. Adding the term ``Electo-Chemical Machining'' and parentheticals 
around the acronym ``ECM'', and adding the term ``Electrical Discharge 
Machines'' and parentheticals around the acronym ``EDM'' in 9E003.c, as 
part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the entry and the related term;
    g. Deleting the term ``sets of characteristics'' and adding single 
quotes around the term `Incidence angles' in 9E003.c.1.c and 
9E003.c.2.c, as part of the TFEI revisions, because it is defined 
within the entry's Technical Note that follows 9E003.c.2.c;
    h. Removing the article ``A'' and adding single quotes around the 
term `Box volume' in 9E003.e.1 and 9E003.e.3, as part of the TFEI 
revisions for clarity and to indicate the term is defined within the 
entry;
    i. Adding single quotes around the term `Box volume', and replacing 
a colon with the word ``is'' in the Technical Note that follows 
9E003.e.3, as part of the TFEI revisions for clarity and to indicate 
that `Box volume' is defined within the entry;
    j. Adding the words ``any of'' to the width and height statements 
in the Technical Note that follows 9E003.e.3, as part of the TFEI 
revisions for clarity;
    k. Adding a comma and the words ``as follows'' in 9E003.f, as part 
of the TFEI revisions for clarity;
    l. Adding the word ``and'' in 9E003.f.2, as part of the TFEI 
revisions for clarity;
    m. Deleting a comma and removing the article ``A'' in 9E003.f.2.b, 
as part of the TFEI revisions for clarity;
    n. Replacing a comma with an ``and'' and replacing the word 
``both'' with ``all'' in 9E003.f.3, as part of the TFEI revisions for 
clarity;
    o. Moving the words ``Specially designed'' from in front of the 
phrase ``electronic control features'' to behind this phrase in 
9E003.f.3.b, as part of the TFEI revisions to clarify the scope of the 
control;
    p. Adding single quotes around the term `high output diesel 
engines', replacing a comma with an ``and'', and replacing a period 
with a semi-colon in 9E003.g, as part of the TFEI revisions to indicate 
the term is defined in the entry and to correct the punctuation; and

[[Page 60919]]

    q. Adding a Technical Note after 9E003.g that defines `high output 
diesel engines' within the entry to conform to the Wassenaar Dual-Use 
List.

Part 740 ``License Exceptions''

    Supplement No. 1 to Section 740.11 ``License Exception GOV'' is 
amended by making minor editorial revisions, such as removing text and 
inserting ``consisting of'' and ``controlled by'' as clarifying text 
under paragraph (a)(1)(i), that conform to the Wassenaar Arrangement 
edits on the Very Sensitive List.

Definitions in Part 772

    Section 772.1 is amended by:
    a. Revising the definition of the term ``Bias'' (accelerometer), as 
set forth below;
    b. Adding in alphabetical order the term ``Bias'' (gyro), as set 
forth below;
    Rationale: The ``bias'' component of ``drift rate'' is the error 
term that is usually listed on the manufacturer's specification sheets. 
Although ``drift rate'' ``stability'' and ``bias'' ``stability'' are 
sometimes used interchangeably, ``bias'' ``stability'' is more often 
used on the gyro data sheet. ``Bias'' ``stability'' is a more 
appropriate control parameter for gyros.
    c. Adding in alphabetical order the term ``Circular Error 
Probable'' (``CEP''), because this term is found in both 7A003 and 
7A008, as set forth below;
    d. Adding after ``compound rotary table'' the new term ``III/V 
compounds'', as set forth below; and
    e. Removing the term ``Drift rate'' (gyro), because this term is 
replaced by the new ``bias'' (gyro) definition, see rationale above.
    Although the Export Administration Act expired on August 20, 2001, 
the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 
2001 Comp., p. 783 (2002), as extended by the Notice of July 23, 2008, 
73 FR 43603 (July 25, 2008), has continued the Export Administration 
Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers 
Act.

Saving Clause

    Shipments of items removed from license exception eligibility or 
eligibility for export or reexport without a license as a result of 
this regulatory action that were on dock for loading, on lighter, laden 
aboard an exporting or reexporting carrier, or en route aboard a 
carrier to a port of export or reexport, on October 14, 2008, pursuant 
to actual orders for export or reexport to a foreign destination, may 
proceed to that destination under the previous license exception 
eligibility or without a license so long as they have been exported 
from the United States or reexported before December 15, 2008. Any such 
items not actually exported or reexported before midnight, on December 
15, 2008, require a license in accordance with this regulation.

Rulemaking Requirements

    1. This final rule has been determined to be not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866.
    2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is 
required to respond to, nor shall any person be 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 rule 
involves two collections of information subject to the PRA. One of the 
collections has been approved by OMB under control number 0694 0088, 
``Multi Purpose Application,'' and carries a burden hour estimate of 58 
minutes for a manual or electronic submission. The other of the 
collections has been approved by OMB under control number 0694 0106, 
``Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements under the Wassenaar 
Arrangement,'' and carries a burden hour estimate of 21 minutes for a 
manual or electronic submission. Send comments regarding these burden 
estimates or any other aspect of these collections of information, 
including suggestions for reducing the burden, to Jasmeet Seehra, OMB 
Desk Officer, by e-mail at jseehra@omb.eop.gov or by fax to (202) 395-
7285; and to the Office of Administration, Bureau of Industry and 
Security, Department of Commerce, 14th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., 
Room 6622, Washington, DC 20230.
    3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
as that term is defined under Executive Order 13132.
    4. This rule is exempt for the provisions of the Administrative 
Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) requiring notice of proposed rulemaking 
and opportunity for public comment pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1) 
because this regulation involves a military and foreign affairs 
function of the United States. No other law requires that a notice of 
proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public comment be given for 
this final rule. Accordingly, the analytical requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) are not applicable, 
so no regulatory flexibility analysis is required and none has been 
prepared. Therefore, this regulation is issued in final form. Although 
there is no formal comment period, public comments on this regulation 
are welcome on a continuing basis. Comments should be submitted to the 
Regulatory Policy Division, Bureau of Industry and Security, Department 
of Commerce, 14th & Pennsylvania Ave., NW., Room 2705, Washington, DC 
20230.

designed for military use as follows (see List of Items Controlled).

* * * * *

List of Items Controlled

    Unit: * * *
    Related Controls: * * *
    Related Definitions: (1) ``adapted for use in war'' means: Any 
modification or selection (such as altering purity, shelf life, 
virulence, dissemination characteristics, or resistance to UV 
radiation) designed to increase the effectiveness in producing 
casualties in humans or animals, degrading equipment or damaging 
crops or the environment. (2) ``Riot control agents'' are substances 
which, under the expected conditions of use for riot control 
purposes, produce rapidly in humans sensory irritation or disabling 
physical effects which disappear within a short time following 
termination of exposure. (Tear gases are a subset of ``riot control 
agents''.)
    Items:
    a. Gas masks, filter canisters and decontamination equipment 
therefor, designed or modified for defense against any of the 
following, and specially designed components therefor:
    1. Biological agents ``adapted for use in war'';
    2. Radioactive materials ``adapted for use in war'';
    3. Chemical warfare (CW) agents; or

    Technical Notes
    1. The word initiator or igniter is sometimes used in place of 
the word detonator.
    2. For the purpose of 1A007.b the detonators of concern all 
utilize a small electrical conductor (bridge, bridge wire, or foil) 
that explosively vaporizes when a fast, high-current electrical 
pulse is passed through it. In nonslapper types, the exploding 
conductor starts a chemical detonation in a contacting high 
explosive material such as PETN (pentaerythritoltetranitrate). In 
slapper detonators, the explosive vaporization of the electrical 
conductor drives a flyer or slapper across a gap, and the impact of 
the slapper on an explosive starts a chemical detonation. The 
slapper in some designs is driven by magnetic force. The term 
exploding foil detonator may refer to either an EB or a slapper-type 
detonator. Also, the word initiator is sometimes used in place of 
the word detonator.

    5. The positioning accuracy of ``numerically controlled'' 
machine tools is to be determined and presented in accordance with 
ISO 230/2 (1988).
    6. `Stated positioning accuracy' levels derived from 
measurements made according to ISO 230/2 (1988) may be used for each 
specific machine model as an alternative to individual machine 
tests. `Stated positioning accuracy' means the accuracy value 
provided to BIS as representative of the accuracy of a specific 
machine model.
    Determination of `Stated Positioning Accuracy'
    a. Select five machines of a model to be evaluated;
    b. Measure the linear axis accuracies according to ISO 230/2 
(1988);
    c. Determine the A-values for each axis of each machine. The 
method of calculating the A-value is described in the ISO standard;
    d. Determine the mean value of the A-value of each axis. This 
mean value A becomes the stated value of each axis for the model (Ax 
Ay * * *);
    e. Since the Category 2 list refers to each linear axis there 
will be as many stated values as there are linear axes;
    f. If any axis of a machine model not controlled by 2B001.a. to 
2B001.c. has a stated accuracy A of 6 microns for grinding machines 
and 8 microns for milling and turning machines or better, the 
builder should be required to reaffirm the accuracy level once every

operating frequency in MHz;

    Note 1:
    For the purpose of 3A002.d., frequency synthesized signal 
generators includes arbitrary waveform and function generators.


    Note 2:
    3A002.d. does not control equipment in which the output 
frequency is either produced by the addition or subtraction of two 
or more crystal oscillator frequencies, or by an addition or 
subtraction followed by a multiplication of the result.


    Technical Notes:

    1. Arbitrary waveform and function generators are normally 
specified by sample rate (e.g., GSample/s), which is converted to 
the RF domain by the Nyquist factor of two. Thus, a 1 GSample/s 
arbitrary waveform has a direct output capability of 500 MHz. Or, 
when oversampling is used, the maximum direct output capability is 
proportionately lower.
    2. For the purposes of 3A002.d.1., `pulse duration' is defined 
as the time interval between the leading edge of the pulse achieving 
90% of the peak and the trailing edge of the pulse achieving 10% of 
the peak.


    Note:
    3A002.d does not control equipment in which the output frequency 
is either produced by the addition or subtraction of two or more 
crystal oscillator frequencies, or by an addition or subtraction 
followed by a multiplication of the result.

    e. Network analyzers with a maximum operating frequency 
exceeding 43.5 GHz;
    f. Microwave test receivers having all of the following:
    f.1. A maximum operating frequency exceeding 43.5 GHz; and
