BIS Issues Final Rule On Export Licensing Jurisdiction of Certain Chemicals

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) today issued a final rule that amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) by transferring export licensing jurisdiction of certain chemicals from the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) to BIS and transfers jurisdiction for other chemicals from BIS to DDTC.

The rule also amends the EAR by replacing the phrase "Office of Defense Trade Controls" with "Directorate of Defense Trade Controls" to reflect the name change of that organization and revises the references to Libya and Syria in the License Requirements section of ECCN 1C350 to reflect the current provisions of the EAR that address export controls that apply to those countries.

This rule, and a complementary rule published by the Department of State on November 27, 2002 (67 Fed. Reg. 70,839), were issued to implement decisions reached in an ongoing review of the United States Munitions List (USML) that is part of the Defense Trade Security Initiative.

The entire text of the rule is found at:
