Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: 
Corrections, Clarifications, and Movement of Definitions

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In an effort to streamline, simplify and clarify the recent 
revisions to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) made 
pursuant to the President's Export Control Reform (ECR) initiative, the 
Department of State is amending the ITAR as part of the Department of 
State's retrospective plan under Executive Order 13563 completed on 
August 17, 2011.

DATES: This rule is effective October 10, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. C. Edward Peartree, Director, 
Office of Defense Trade Controls Policy, Department of State, telephone 
(202) 663-2792; email DDTCResponseTeam@state.gov. ATTN: Regulatory 
Change, Omnibus Clarifications. The Department of State's full 
retrospective plan can be accessed at http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/181028.pdf.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Changes in this Rule

    The following changes are made to the ITAR with this final rule: 
(1) Definitions previously provided in Sec. Sec.  121.3, 121.4, 121.14, 
and 121.15 are removed from these sections and incorporated into U.S. 
Munitions List Categories VIII, VII, XX, and VI, respectively; (2) USML 
Category II is amended to clarify that grenade launchers are controlled 
in paragraph (a) as a result of the revisions previously made to USML 
Category IV pursuant to Export Control Reform; (3) USML Category IX is 
amended to enumerate military training not directly related to a 
defense article, which is a controlled activity pursuant to ITAR Sec.  
120.9(a)(3). This change is required in order to provide exporters a 
USML category to cite for military training when not related to a 
defense article; (4) The note to paragraph (b) in the specially 
designed definition is revised to clarify that catch-all controls are 
only those that generically control parts, components, accessories, and 
attachments for a specified article and do not identify a specific 
specially designed part, component, accessory, or attachment. This 
revision is intended to help ensure that exporters properly apply ITAR 
Sec.  120.41 when classifying their article and clarify that when a 
specific article is described on the USML, it is enumerated and is not 
part of a catch-all; (5) The definitions previously provided in ITAR 
Sec.  121.8 are removed to new ITAR Sec.  120.45; (6) The policy with 
regard to when forgings, castings, and machined bodies are controlled 
as defense articles is removed from ITAR Sec.  121.10 and placed in 
ITAR Sec.  120.6; (7) The threshold for lithium-ion batteries 
controlled in Category VIII(h)(13) is increased from greater than 28 
volts of direct current (VDC) nominal to greater than 38 VDC nominal, 
so as not to control on the USML such batteries in normal commercial 
aviation use; (8) A control for specially designed parts, components, 
accessories, and attachments is added to the helmets controlled in 
Category VIII(h)(15); (9) The phrase ``electric-generating'' is added 
to the control describing fuel cells in Category VIII(h)(23) to clarify 
that fuel bladders and fuel tanks are not within this control; (10) The 
word ``enumerated'' is replaced with the word ``described'' in the 
paragraphs of the USML for technical data and defense services directly 
related to the defense articles in that Category to clarify that the 
controls on technical data and defense services apply even if the 
defense article is described in a catch-all; (11) Conforming changes 
are made to citations throughout these sections; and (12) Minor 
reference corrections are made to Supplement No. 1 to Part 126, 
including moving the footnote to the entire Supplement from the end to 
the opening to better clarify if an item is excluded from eligibility 
in any row, it is excluded from that exemption, even if also described 
in another row that contains a description that may also include that 
item.

Regulatory Analysis and Notices

Administrative Procedure Act

    The Department of State is of the opinion that controlling the 
import and export of defense articles and services is a foreign affairs 
function of the United States Government and that rules implementing 
this function are exempt from 5 U.S.C. 553 and 554.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Since the Department is of the opinion that this rule is exempt 
from the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 553, there is no requirement for an 
analysis under the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

[[Page 61227]]

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    This rulemaking does not involve a mandate that will result in the 
expenditure by State, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, 
or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any year and it 
will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, 
no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996

    For purposes of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness 
Act of 1996, a ``major'' rule is a rule that the Administrator of the 
OMB Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs finds has resulted or 
is likely to result in (1) an annual effect on the economy of 
$100,000,000 or more; (2) a major increase in costs or prices for 
consumers, individual industries, federal, state, or local government 
agencies, or geographic regions; or (3) significant adverse effects on 
competition, employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on 
the ability of United States-based enterprises to compete with foreign-
based enterprises in domestic and foreign markets.
    The Department does not believe this rulemaking will have an annual 
effect on the economy of $100,000,000 or more. Articles that are being 
removed from coverage in the U.S. Munitions List categories contained 
in this rule will still require licensing for export, but from the 
Department of Commerce. While the licensing regime of the Department of 
Commerce is more flexible than that of the Department of State, it is 
not expected that the change in jurisdiction of these articles will 
result in an export difference of $100,000,000 or more.
    The Department also does not believe that this rulemaking will 
result in a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, individual 
industries, federal, state, or local government agencies, or geographic 
regions, or have significant adverse effects on competition, 
employment, investment, productivity, innovation, or on the ability of 
United States-based enterprises to compete with foreign-based 
enterprises in domestic and foreign markets.

Executive Orders 12372 and 13132

    This rulemaking will not have substantial direct effects on the 
States, on the relationship between the national government and the 
States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of government. Therefore, in accordance with Executive 
Order 13132, it is determined that this rulemaking does not have 
sufficient federalism implications to require consultations or warrant 
the preparation of a federalism summary impact statement. The 
regulations implementing Executive Order 12372 regarding 
intergovernmental consultation on Federal programs and activities do 
not apply to this rulemaking.

Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess costs 
and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is 
necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits 
(including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety 
effects, distributed impacts, and equity). These executive orders 
stress the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of 
reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This rulemaking has been designated a ``significant regulatory 
action,'' although not economically significant, under section 3(f) of 
Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, this rule has been reviewed by the 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Executive Order 12988

    The Department of State has reviewed this rulemaking in light of 
sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988 to eliminate 
ambiguity, minimize litigation, establish clear legal standards, and 
reduce burden.

Executive Order 13175

    The Department of State has determined that this rulemaking will 
not have tribal implications, will not impose substantial direct 
compliance costs on Indian tribal governments, and will not preempt 
tribal law. Accordingly, the requirements of Executive Order 13175 do 
not apply to this rulemaking.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This rule does not impose or revise any reporting or recordkeeping 
requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 
35.

2. Section 120.6 is revised to read as follows:


Sec.  120.6  Defense article.

    Defense article means any item or technical data designated in 
Sec.  121.1 of this subchapter. The policy described in Sec.  120.3 is 
applicable to designations of additional items. This term includes 
technical data recorded or stored in any physical form, models, mockups 
or other items that reveal technical data directly relating to items 
designated in Sec.  121.1 of this subchapter. It also includes 
forgings, castings, and other unfinished products, such as extrusions 
and machined bodies, that have reached a stage in manufacturing where 
they are clearly identifiable by mechanical properties, material 
composition, geometry, or function as defense articles. It does not 
include basic marketing information on function or purpose or general 
system descriptions.

3. Section 120.10 is amended by revising paragraph (a)(4) to read as 
follows:


Sec.  120.10  Technical data.

    (a) * * *
    (4) Software (see Sec.  120.45(f)) directly related to defense 
articles.
* * * * *

0
4. Section 120.41 is amended by revising paragraph (a) introductory 
text, paragraph (a)(2), and the note to paragraph (b), to read as 
follows:


Sec.  120.41  Specially designed.

    (a) Except for commodities or software described in paragraph (b) 
of

[[Page 61228]]

this section, a commodity or software (see Sec.  120.45(f)) is 
specially designed if it:
* * * * *
    (2) Is a part (see Sec.  120.45 (d)), component (see Sec.  
120.45(b)), accessory (see Sec.  120.45(c)), attachment (see Sec.  
120.45(c)), or software for use in or with a defense article.
* * * * *
    Note to paragraph (b): The term ``enumerated'' refers to any 
article on the U.S. Munitions List or the Commerce Control List and not 
in a ``catch-all'' control. A ``catch-all'' control is one that does 
not refer to specific types of parts, components, accessories, or 
attachments, but rather controls unspecified parts, components, 
accessories, or attachments only if they were specially designed for an 
enumerated item.
* * * * *

0
5. Section 120.45 is added to read as follows:


Sec.  120.45  End-items, components, accessories, attachments, parts, 
firmware, software, systems, and equipment.

    (a) An end-item is a system, equipment, or an assembled article 
ready for its intended use. Only ammunition or fuel or other energy 
source is required to place it in an operating state.
    (b) A component is an item that is useful only when used in 
conjunction with an end-item. A major component includes any assembled 
element that forms a portion of an end-item without which the end-item 
is inoperable. A minor component includes any assembled element of a 
major component.
    (c) Accessories and attachments are associated articles for any 
component, equipment, system, or end-item, and which are not necessary 
for its operation, but which enhance its usefulness or effectiveness.
    (d) A part is any single unassembled element of a major or a minor 
component, accessory, or attachment which is not normally subject to 
disassembly without the destruction or the impairment of designed use.
    (e) Firmware and any related unique support tools (such as 
computers, linkers, editors, test case generators, diagnostic checkers, 
library of functions, and system test diagnostics) directly related to 
equipment or systems covered under any category of the U.S. Munitions 
List are considered as part of the end-item or component. Firmware 
includes but is not limited to circuits into which software has been 
programmed.
    (f) Software includes but is not limited to the system functional 
design, logic flow, algorithms, application programs, operating 
systems, and support software for design, implementation, test, 
operation, diagnosis and repair. A person who intends to export only 
software should, unless it is specifically enumerated in Sec.  121.1 of 
this subchapter (e.g., USML Category XIII(b)), apply for a technical 
data license pursuant to part 125 of this subchapter.
    (g) A system is a combination of parts, components, accessories, 
attachments, firmware, software, equipment, or end-items that operate 
together to perform a function.
    Note to paragraph (g): The industrial standards established by 
INCOSE and NASA provide examples for when commodities and software 
operate together to perform a function as a system. References to these 
standards are included in this note to provide examples for when 
commodities or software operate together to perform a function as a 
system. See the INCOSE standards for what constitutes a system at: 
http://g2sebok.incose.org/app/mss/asset.cfm?ID=INCOSE%20G2SEBOK%202.00&ST=F, and in INCOSE SE Handbook 
v3.1 2007; ISO/IEC 15288:2008. See the NASA standards for examples of 
what constitutes a system in NASA SE Handbook SP-2007-6105 Rev 1.
    (h) Equipment is a combination of parts, components, accessories, 
attachments, firmware, or software that operate together to perform a 
function of, as, or for an end-item or system. Equipment may be a 
subset of an end-item based on the characteristics of the equipment. 
Equipment that meets the definition of an end-item is an end-item. 
Equipment that does not meet the definition of an end-item is a 
component, accessory, attachment, firmware, or software.
