Agency Notice
SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security maintains, as part of its Export Administration Regulations, the Commerce Control List (CCL), which identifies certain items subject to Department of Commerce’s jurisdiction. This final rule revises the CCL to implement certain changes made to the Wassenaar Arrangement List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies 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) at the December 2018 WA Plenary meeting. The Wassenaar Arrangement advocates implementation of effective export controls on strategic items with the objective of improving regional and international security and stability. This rule harmonizes the CCL with only the agreements on recently developed or developing technologies not previously controlled that are essential to the national security of the United States and warrant early implementation. The remaining agreements will be implemented in a separate rule. DATES: This rule is effective May 23, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general questions, contact Sharron Cook, Office of Exporter Services, Bureau of Industry and Security, U.S. Department of Commerce at 202-482-2440 or by email: Sharron.Cook@bis.doc.gov.
