BIS Modifies Text of ECCN 2B350

U.S. manufacturers and exporters of products classified under Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 2B350 should be aware that the final rule issued by BIS on October 6, 2008 making changes to the Commerce Control List contained several changes to ECCN 2B350.

ECCN 2B350 covers valves, pumps, reaction vessels and other types of equipment used in chemical manufacturing facilities.

While the rule did not make any substantive changes to the list of items that are controlled under 2B350, the rule made a number of changes to the text of ECCN 2B350 that should be reviewed:

  • Reordered the "Items" paragraph in the List of Items Controlled Section.
  • Redesignated the "Technical Note" at the end of the ‘‘Items’’ paragraph in the List of Items Controlled section, as ‘‘Technical Note 1".
  • Added a ‘‘Technical Note 2’’ to define the term ‘‘alloy’’. This new definition of ‘‘alloy’’ states that the metal alloys in 2B350 are those containing a higher percentage by weight of the stated metal than any other element.
  • Moved the text of the ‘‘Related Controls’’ paragraph to a new ‘‘License Requirement Note’’ to clarify the intended scope of the control.
