The Bureau of Industry and Security is amending the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by adding two entities under seven entries to the Entity List. These entities are listed under the destinations of Canada (1), the People’s Republic of China (China) (1), India (1), Japan (1), Malaysia (1), Sweden (1), and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) (1).

Revision of License Requirements of Certain Cameras, Systems, or Related Components

Publication Date: 02/23/2024

89 FR 13590

 

With this final rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), which it maintains, by revising license requirements for certain cameras, systems, and related components. These revisions will better align controls with technological and commercial developments, such as the items' global commercial availability, while recognizing the cooperative strategic relationship the United States has with our closest allies. In addition to these changes, BIS is adding controls on certain cameras that are not already controlled by either export control classification number (ECCN) 6A003 or 6A203. These new controls are detailed under new ECCN 6A293, which is a classification for temporary controls for which BIS is seeking multilateral agreement.

Clarifications and Updates to Defense Priorities and Allocations System Regulation

Publication Date: 02/07/2024

89 FR 8363

 

This proposed rule would amend the Bureau of Industry and Security’s (BIS) Defense Priorities and Allocations System (DPAS) regulation by providing administrative changes to well-established standards and procedures. This proposed rule would: clarify existing standards and procedures by which BIS may provide Special Priorities Assistance (SPA); revise Schedule I to provide transparency and differentiation between other departments’ priorities jurisdiction and the Department of Commerce’s jurisdiction; and provide technical edits to reflect certain nonsubstantive updates since the DPAS regulation was last amended in 2014, including providing updated contact information, legal citations, and definitions.

Implementation of Additional Sanctions Against Russia and Belarus Under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and Refinements to Existing Controls

Publication Date: 01/25/2024

Effective Date: 01/23/2024

89 FR 4804

 

In response to the Russian Federation’s (Russia’s) ongoing aggression against Ukraine and Belarus’s complicity in the invasion, the Department of Commerce is strengthening its existing sanctions under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) against Russia and Belarus, including by expanding the scope of the EAR’s Russian and Belarusian Industry Sector Sanctions and making certain changes to the licensing requirements that apply to the occupied Crimea region of Ukraine as well. Additionally, this rule revises recent restrictions targeting Iran’s supply of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Russia. This rule also refines certain existing export controls on Russia and Belarus. The Department of Commerce is taking these actions to enhance the effectiveness of its controls on these countries and to better align them with those implemented by U.S. allies and partners.
