The Department provides the following corrections to the rule, “Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: Continued Implementation of Export Control Reform,” published on July 8, 2013 and effective on January 6, 2014 (78 FR 40922).  As part of the President’s Export Control Reform (ECR) effort, that rule amended the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to revise four U.S Munitions List (USML) categories and provide new and revised definitions. The changes in this rule are meant to clarify the regulation by correcting punctuation, providing exact effective dates for the paragraphs regarding developmental articles, and providing a revised Supplement No. 1 to part 126, which takes into account the changes made to the USML categories revised in the rule published on July 8, 2013.

Pursuant to Export Control Reform, the Department of Commerce has been publishing revisions to the Export Administration Regulations, including various revisions to the Commerce Control List (CCL). Revision of the USML and CCL are coordinated so there is uninterrupted regulatory coverage for items moving from the jurisdiction of the Department of State to that of the Department of Commerce. The Department of Commerce’s companion to the rule corrected in this notice (see “Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: Military Vehicles; Vessels of War; Submersible Vessels, Oceanographic Equipment; Related Items; and Auxiliary and Miscellaneous Items That the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the United States Munitions List,” 78 FR 40892) is also corrected in this edition of the Federal Register.
