BIS Publishes "Fix-It" Rule Correcting Errors in Parts 742 and 744 of the EAR and Categories 1, 3, 6 and 7 of the CCL
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a "fix-it" final rule in today's Federal Register correcting a number of errors contained in the November 5, 2007 final rule that implemented changes to the Commerce Control List (CCL) as a result of the Wassenaar Arrangement's 2006 plenary session.
Today's final rule corrects errors in Parts 742 and 744 of the Export Administration Regulations and Categories 1, 3, 6 and 7 of the CCL.
In addition, the November 5th rule indirectly affected an item of the list of eligible items for Authorized Validated End-User (VEU) Applied Materials China, Ltd. This rule corrects that item listing to harmonize with revisions of the November 5th rule.
Exporters that are involved in shipping products classified in Categories 1, 3, 6 and 7 of the CCL should review today's rule to determine whether their products are affected by these changes.
