Wassenaar Arrangement 2017 Plenary Agreements Implementation

AGENCY: Bureau of Industry and Security, Commerce.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) maintains, as part 
of its Export Administration Regulations (EAR), the Commerce Control 
List (CCL), which identifies certain items subject to Department of 
Commerce jurisdiction. This final rule revises the CCL, as well as 
corresponding parts of the EAR, to implement changes made to the 
Wassenaar Arrangement List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies (WA List) 
maintained and agreed to by governments participating in the Wassenaar 
Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods 
and Technologies (Wassenaar Arrangement, or WA) at the December 2017 WA 
Plenary meeting. The Wassenaar Arrangement advocates implementation of 
effective export controls on strategic items with the objective of 
improving regional and international security and stability. This rule 
harmonizes the CCL with the agreements reached at the 2017 Plenary 
meeting by revising Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 
controlled for national security reasons in each category of the CCL. 
This rule also makes other associated changes to the EAR and makes a 
correction.

DATES: This rule is effective October 24, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Wassenaar Arrangement (Wassenaar or WA) (http://www.wassenaar.org/) on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-
Use Goods and Technologies is a group of 42 like-minded states 
committed to promoting responsibility and transparency in the global 
arms trade, and preventing destabilizing accumulations of arms. As a 
Participating State, the United States has committed to controlling for 
export all items on the WA control lists. The lists were first 
established in 1996 and have been revised annually thereafter. 
Proposals for changes to the WA control lists that achieve consensus 
are approved by Participating States at annual plenary meetings. 
Participating States are charged with implementing the agreed list 
changes as soon as possible after approval. The United States' 
implementation of WA list changes ensures U.S. companies have a level 
playing field with their competitors in other WA Participating States.
    The changes in this rule, which reflect the changes to the WA 
control lists that were approved at the December 2017 WA Plenary 
meeting, update the corresponding items listed in the EAR, and reflect 
the most recent changes in technologies and conditions. Unless 
explicitly discussed below, the revisions made by this rule will not 
impact the number of license applications submitted to BIS.

Revisions to the Commerce Control List Related to WA 2017 Plenary 
Agreements

    ECCN Removals: 6A990 and 6E990.
    ECCN Correction: 3A991.
    ECCN change to maintain NP controls: 2B206.

Category 0--Nuclear Materials, Facilities, and Equipment [and 
Miscellaneous Items]

0A617 Miscellaneous ``Equipment'', Materials, and Related Commodities

    ECCN 0A617, paragraph y.3, containers for shipping or packing 
defense articles or items controlled by ``600 series'' ECCNs, is 
amended by narrowing the scope to International Organization for 
Standardization (ISO) intermodal containers or demountable vehicle 
bodies (i.e., swap bodies), but also expands the scope beyond 
``specially designed'' by adding ``or modified''. As the term 
`modified' is in single quotes, BIS is also adding the technical note 
that defines `modified,' which was already existing text in Wassenaar 
Arrangement Military List of 2017 (WAML 17).

0A919 ``Military Commodities'' Located and Produced Outside the United 
States

    ECCN 0A919 is revised to remove reference to 6A990, because this 
rule removes 6A990 from the CCL and Read Out Integrated Circuits 
(ROICs) are now controlled under 6A002.f.

Category 1--Special Materials and Related Equipment, Chemicals, 
``Microorganisms'', and ``Toxins''

1A002 ``Composite'' Structures or Laminates

    The heading of ECCN 1A002 is amended by replacing ``having any of 
the following'' with ``as follows''. An ``as follows'' phrase is 
usually followed by items, but in this case it is followed by 
parameters. The phrase ``consisting of'' is replaced by ``made from'' 
in both sub-paragraph .a and .b. Also, more descriptive text is added 
for clarity and the scope of the control is not changed. The 
superfluous word ``purely'' is removed from Note 2, which does not 
change the effect of the Note.

1C001 Materials ``Specially Designed'' for Use as Absorbing of 
Electromagnetic Radiation, or Intrinsically Conductive Polymers

    The heading of ECCN 1C001 is amended by replacing ``absorbers'' 
with ``absorbing'' and replacing ``waves'' with ``radiation''. 
Subparagraph .b is amended by moving the phrase ``not transparent to 
visible light'' to the beginning and adding more descriptive text 
``near-infrared radiation having a wavelength'' to clarify the scope of 
the control. Also the parameters are changed from ``1.5 x 10\14\ Hz'' 
to ``810

[[Page 53743]]

nm'' and ``3.7 x 10\14\ Hz'' to ``2,000 nm (frequencies exceeding 150 
THz but less than 370 THz)''. The frequency band is changed to the 
equivalent wavelength band to make the parameter easier to understand 
and not to change the scope of control. Therefore, these revisions will 
not affect the number of license applications submitted to BIS.

1C002 Metal Alloys, Metal Alloy Powder and Alloyed Materials

    Item paragraphs c.2 and d.3 are amended by replacing the double 
quotes with single quotes around the terms in c.2.a through c.2.h and 
d.3.a through d.3.c. Double quotes indicate the term is used multiple 
times in the Commerce Control List (CCL) or separated by a large amount 
of space within a single ECCN and the definition for the term is found 
in part 772. Single quotes indicate the term is used only in a single 
ECCN and the definition for the term is found within the ECCN where the 
term is used. These and many other terms in this rule were found to 
only be used in a single ECCN and should not be defined in part 772, 
but in the ECCN. The definitions for the terms, in c.2.a through c.2.h 
and d.3.a through d.3.c, are moved from part 772 to a new Technical 
Note after Items paragraph d.3.c. These amendments do not change the 
number of license applications submitted to BIS.

1C007 Ceramic Powders, Ceramic ``Matrix'' ``Composite'' Materials and 
``Precursor Materials''

    In the Nota Bene (N.B.) to Item paragraphs c.2, .d and .f, the 
phrase ``listed under'' is replaced by ``specified by'' to be 
consistent with the terms used to reference new locations for 
controlled items. This does not change the number of license 
applications submitted to BIS.

1C010 ``Fibrous or Filamentary Materials''

    Item paragraphs d.2 and .e, and Note 1 below Item paragraph e.2.c 
are amended by replacing the double quotes with single quotes around 
defined terms, because the terms are only used in this ECCN. The 
definition for `commingled' is moved from part 772 to the Technical 
Note below Items paragraph d.2. The definition for `carbon fiber 
preforms' is moved from part 772 to the Technical Note at the end of 
the List of Items Controlled. These amendments do not change the number 
of license applications submitted to BIS.

1C608 ``Energetic Materials'' and Related Commodities

    WA agreed to add a Note specifying that WAML 8.c.1 does not apply 
to aircraft fuels--JP-4, JP-5 and JP-8. This rule adds this Note below 
1C608.n ``Any explosives, `propellants,' oxidizers, ``pyrotechnics'', 
fuels, binders, or additives . . .'' as well as bringing forth another 
Note from WAML 8.c.1 that specifies that aircraft fuels specified by 
WAML 8.c.1 are finished products, not their constituents.

Category 2--Materials Processing

2A001 Anti-Friction Bearings and Bearing Systems

    Note 2 at the beginning of the Items paragraph is amended by adding 
``(or national equivalents)'', in order to help efficiently classify 
bearings using national standards that are equivalent to ISO 3290 as 
grade 5.

2B001 Machine Tools

    An editorial change is made to Note 2 to 2B001.a by replacing 
``and/or'' with ``or''. Items paragraph c.1.b is revised from 
specifying ``three or more axes'' to ``three or four axes'' to remove 
the overlap between c.2 ``five or more axes'' and c.1.b for machine 
tools for grinding. This will not affect license submissions to BIS.

2B006 Dimensional Inspection or Measuring Systems, Equipment, Position 
Feedback Units and ``Electronic Assemblies''

    The Heading is revised to add ``position feedback units'' and 
``electronic assemblies'' to more accurately describe the scope of 
controls in Items paragraph .b. Angular displacement measuring systems 
formerly in 2B006.b.2 are moved to 2B006.c. Linear Variable 
Differential Transformer (LVDT) systems formerly in 2B006.b.1.b are 
moved to 2B206.d and no longer have a national security control. The 
License Requirements section is amended by revising the Nuclear 
Proliferation (NP) controls from ``2B006.a and .b'' to ``2B006.a, .b.1, 
b.3, and .c (angular displacement measuring instruments)'' to account 
for moving the LVDT systems to 2B206 and moving the angular 
displacement measuring instruments from 2B006.b.2 to .c. Item 
paragraphs 2B008.a (linear position feedback units) and .b.2 (rotary 
position feedback units) are moved to 2B006.b.2 and .c, respectively, 
so that all the measuring systems for machine tools are in one place. 
Equipment for measuring surface roughness is moved from Items paragraph 
2B006.c to .d.

2B007 ``Robots''

    Item paragraph .a ``[Robots] capable in real-time of full three-
dimensional image processing or full three-dimensional ``scene 
analysis'' to generate or modify ``programs'' or to generate or modify 
numerical program data'' is removed and reserved because of 
insufficient connection to military capabilities. Robots of national 
security concern are controlled under 2B007.b, .c and .d. This change 
will have a minimal effect on license application submissions to BIS.

2B008 ``Compound Rotary Tables'' and ``Tilting Spindles'', ``Specially 
Designed'' for Machine Tools

    The Heading is amended by replacing ``assemblies or units'' with 
`compound rotary tables' and ``tilting spindles'', as well as removing 
``or dimensional inspection or measuring systems and equipment'' to 
align with revisions made to the List of Items Controlled in this ECCN. 
Item paragraphs .a (linear position feedback units) and .b (rotary 
position feedback units) are removed and reserved, because this rule 
moves these items to 2B006.b.2 and .c, respectively. Item paragraph .c 
is amended by replacing and cascading the parameter paragraphs, as well 
as moving the definition for `compound rotary table' from part 772 to a 
Technical Note under this Item paragraph. ``Tilting spindles'' are 
moved from Item paragraph .c to new Item paragraph .d to separate it 
from the compound rotary table control. The parameters have been 
revised in both paragraphs .c and .d to remove ambiguity, which will 
not affect license application submissions.

2B206 Dimensional Inspection Machines, Instruments or Systems, Other 
Than Those Described in 2B006

    2B206 is amended by adding Linear Variable Differential Transformer 
(LVDT) systems to Item paragraph .d, because this item is removed from 
2B006.b.1.b. While LVDT systems are no longer controlled for national 
security reasons, they are still on the Nuclear Supplier's Group (NSG) 
list under 1.B.3.b.2 and remain controlled for nuclear nonproliferation 
reasons on the CCL.

2E003 Other ``Technology''

    Item paragraph .a (``technology'' for the ``development'' of 
interactive graphics as an integrated part in ``numerical control'' 
units for preparation or modification of part programs) is removed and 
reserved because of the advancement of technology. Therefore, Item 
paragraph .a is removed from License Exception TSR.

[[Page 53744]]

The double quotes are replaced with single quotes around the term 
`direct-acting hydraulic pressing' in Item paragraphs b.1.c and b.1.d 
and `hot isostatic densification' in Item paragraph b.2.d. 
Additionally, the definition for these terms is moved from part 772 to 
the Technical Notes below Item paragraph b.2.d.3, because these terms 
are only used in this ECCN. Item paragraph .d (``technology'' for the 
``development'' of generators of machine tool instructions . . . from 
design data residing inside ``numerical control'' units) is removed and 
reserved because of the advancement of technology. When items are 
removed because of technological advancement, it does not affect the 
annual number of license application submissions to BIS.

Category 3--Electronics

Product Group A. ``End Items'', ``Equipment'', ``Accessories'', 
``Attachments'', ``Parts'', ``Components'', and ``Systems''

    Note 1 at the beginning of Category 3 is amended by making an 
editorial correction by moving an ``or'' and adding ``to'' in order to 
correctly specify which ECCN 3A001 subparagraphs are excluded from the 
scope statement for Category 3.
    Note 2 at the beginning of Category 3 is amended by making an 
editorial correction by moving an ``or'', adding ``to'', adding a comma 
and replacing ``that'' with ``which''. These revisions are made to 
correctly specify which ECCN 3A001 subparagraphs are included in the 
scope statement for Category 3.
    The Nota Bene after Note 2 is amended to make an editorial 
correction by moving an ``and'' and adding ``to'' in order to correctly 
specify the scope of this N.B.

3A001 Electronic Items

    Item paragraph a.2 is amended by replacing ``Electrical Erasable 
Programmable Read-Only Memories (EEPROMS), flash memories, and MRAMs'' 
with `non-volatile memories' and adding a Technical Note to define 
`non-volatile memories,' to provide a more generic term for these types 
of memory integrated circuits.
    Item paragraph a.5.a ``ADCs'' and the Technical Note below a.5.a 
are amended by replacing the term ``output rate'' with the ``sample 
rate'' as measured points at the input, except for oversampling 
(defined as output sample rate), and the Technical Note identifies 
common ways manufacturers specify `sample rate.' The definition for 
``sample rate'' is added to part 772 ``Definition of Terms. . . .'' 
Also the superfluous term ``Mega Samples Per Second'', is removed from 
several subparagraphs in a.5.a, but leaves its acronym ``MSPS''. The 
Technical Notes below Items paragraph a.5.a are amended by adding an 
explanation for the resolution of the ADC, removing the explanation for 
output rate, replacing single quotes with double quotes around the term 
``interleaved ADCs'' and ``multiple channel ADCs'', and removing 
Technical Notes 6 through 9. The definitions for the terms 
``interleaved ADCs'' and ``multiple channel ADCs'' are added to part 
772 ``Definition of terms. . . .''. These revisions will not change the 
number of submissions of license applications.
    Item paragraph a.5.b.2.a, ``settling time'' parameter, is amended 
by adding ``arrive at or within'' to clarify the potentially ambiguous 
parameter with common usage and understanding of DAC specifications, so 
that it will not be misinterpreted to mean the time to deviate by the 
specific amount from the original level.
    The inclusion Note to 3A001.a.7 is amended by removing ``Simple 
Programmable Logic Devices (SPLDs)'' because of technological 
advancements, which will not affect the number of license application 
submissions.
    Item paragraph a.14 is amended by replacing ``Integrated circuits 
that perform all of the following:'' with ``Integrated circuits that 
perform or are programmed to perform all of the following:''. The term 
``input sample rate'' is replaced with ``sample rate'' that is defined 
in part 772. The superfluous ``Giga Samples Per Second'' is removed, 
but the acronym GSPS remains, as ``Mega Samples Per Second'' is removed 
and MSPS remains. Technical Notes are added below Items paragraph 
a.14.b.2 to provide more explanation of the parameters in Item 
paragraph .a, especially, resolution of ADC and the ``sample rate'' for 
integrated circuits with interleaving or non-interleaving ``multiple 
channel ADCs''. These changes will have little effect on the number of 
licenses submitted to BIS.
    Nota Bene 3 is added after Item paragraph b.4.f to reference 
3A001.b.7 for converters and harmonic mixers, designed to extend the 
operating or frequency range of signal analyzers, signal generators, 
network analyzers or microwave test receivers.
    In Item paragraph b.11 double quotes are replaced with single 
quotes around the term `frequency synthesizer' and the definition is 
moved from part 772 to a Technical Note below Item paragraph b.11.g, 
because the term is only used in this ECCN.
    The Technical Notes after Item paragraph b.12.d are amended by 
correcting the reference ``3A001.b.4.12.c'' to read ``3A001.b.12.c'' in 
Technical Note 5.
    The parameters for `primary cells' in Item paragraph e.1.a are 
amended by cascading the parameters and adding a `continuous power 
density' parameter and the definition for it in Technical Note 5 below 
Item paragraph e.1.b, because military uses for these items have 
requirements in both energy and power density. This revision should 
lower the annual number of license applications submitted to BIS by 5.
    Intensity, amplitude, or phase electro-optic modulators, designed 
for analog signals, including electro-optic modulators having optical 
input and output connectors are added to new paragraph 3A001.i to 
address photonic components for analog Radio Frequency (RF) over fiber 
antenna remoting, and analog RF distribution of signals. One of the 
parameters for these items is `half-wave voltage' (`V[pi]'), which is 
defined in a Technical Note below the new paragraph. These items will 
be eligible for License Exception GBS; therefore, the GBS paragraph is 
revised to add Item paragraph .i. This new entry is estimated to add 10 
new license application submissions to BIS annually.

3A991 Electronic Devices, and ``Components'' Not Controlled by 3A001

    On September 20, 2016, BIS published a WA rule (81 FR 64682) that 
increased the energy density in 3A001.e.1.b from 300 to 350 Wh/kg, but 
did not make the corresponding change to ECCN 3A991.j.2, which left a 
gap in control. This rule corrects 3A991.j.2 by increasing the energy 
density from 300 to 350 Wh/kg or less in order to close a gap of 
control between 3A001.e.1.b and 3A991.j.2 for secondary cells.

3A002 General Purpose ``Electronic Assemblies'', Modules and Equipment

    The frequency parameter is raised from ``exceeding 10 MHz'' to 
``exceeding 40 MHz'' for signal analyzers having a 3 dB resolution 
bandwidth (RBW) in Item paragraph c.1, which is estimated to reduce 
annual license application submissions to BIS by 5.
    Double quotes are replaced with single quotes for the term `real-
time bandwidth' in Item paragraph c.4.a and for `frequency mask 
trigger' in Item paragraph c.4.b.2, because these terms are only used 
in this ECCN. The definitions for these terms are moved from part 772 
to the Technical Notes after Item paragraph c.4.b.2.

[[Page 53745]]

    The scientific unit ``billion samples per second'' is replaced with 
``Giga Samples Per Second (GSPS)'' in Item paragraph h.1.a. The 
scientific unit ``billion samples per second'' is replaced with the 
acronym GSPS in Item paragraphs h.1.b and h.1.c. The scientific unit 
``million samples per second'' is replaced with ``Mega Samples Per 
Second (MSPS)'' in Item paragraph h.1.d. The scientific unit ``million 
samples per second'' is replaced with the acronym ``MSPS'' in Item 
paragraph h.1.e. These revisions are made for simplification purposes.
    The Technical Note below Item paragraph h.2.c is replaced by the 
same Technical Notes that are added below 3A001.a.5.a, explaining 
resolution and ``sample rate'' for interleaved and non-interleaved 
multiple-channel ``electronic assemblies'', modules, or equipment.

3B001 Equipment for the Manufacturing of Semiconductor Devices or 
Materials

    Mask ``substrate blanks'' with multilayer reflector structure 
consisting of molybdenum and silicon being ``specially designed'' for 
`Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV)' lithography and being compliant with SEMI 
Standard P37 are added to new paragraph 3B001.j, because mask 
``substrate blanks'' and the subsequent substrate blank with multilayer 
reflector structure are critical materials for EUV lithography. This 
addition is estimated to increase annual license application 
submissions to BIS by 7. EUV lithography opens up integrated circuit 
fabrication at the most advanced state-of-the-art technology node. The 
definition for `Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV)' is added to a Technical Note 
below Item paragraph j.2.

3B002 Test Equipment ``Specially Designed'' for Testing Finished or 
Unfinished Semiconductor Devices

    Item paragraph .a is revised from ``For testing S-parameters of 
transistor device at frequencies exceeding 31.8 GHz'' to read ``For 
testing S-parameters of items specified by 3A001.b.3'' to remove 
potential overlapping controls for network analyzers (which measure S-
parameters) described in 3A002.e, to harmonize the control text of 
equipment for testing S-parameters of transistors specified in 
paragraphs 3A001.b.3.a and 3A001.b.3.b (i.e., transistors that are 
below 31.8 GHz), and to remove ambiguity regarding the meaning of the 
phrase ``transistor devices'' by substituting the unambiguous reference 
to transistors specified by 3A001.b.3.

3C002 Resist Materials

    The wavelength for positive resists in Item paragraph a.1 is 
revised from ``wavelengths less than 245 nm . . . .'' to ``wavelengths 
less than 193 nm . . . .'' in order to match the material control with 
the lithography equipment parameters in 3B001.f.1.a, which is estimated 
to reduce by 3 the annual number of license application submissions to 
BIS.

3C005 High Resistivity Materials

    The Heading of ECCN 3C005 is revised to move the items that were in 
the Heading to Items paragraph .a. Polycrystalline ``substrates'' or 
polycrystalline ceramic ``substrates'' are added to Item paragraph .b, 
because there are both military and commercial applications for 
microwave transistors fabricated on the engineered substrates. These 
newly added substrates will be controlled for NS:2 and AT:1 and have 
License Exception LVS ($3,000), GBS and CIV eligibility. It is 
anticipated that this new control will result in an increase of 15 new 
license application submissions to BIS annually.

3C006 Materials, Not Specified by 3C001, Consisting of a ``Substrate'' 
Specified in 3C005 With at Least One Epitaxial Layer of Silicon 
Carbide, Gallium Nitride, Aluminum Nitride or Aluminum Gallium Nitride

    The Heading is amended by adding ``Materials, not specified by 
3C001, consisting of a'' at the beginning of the Heading in order to 
clarify the scope of the control. The former language of 3C001, 3C005 
and 3C006 has common elements that have led to some confusion around 
the control of silicon carbide wafers.

3C992 Positive Resists Designed for Semiconductor Lithography

    The Heading of 3C992 is amended by replacing the wavelength range 
from ``370 and 245 nm'' to ``370 and 193 nm.'' This is to harmonize 
this ECCN with the amendment to ECCN 3C002.a.1.

3E001 ``Technology''

    License Exception CIV eligibility paragraph is corrected by 
removing the eligibility for 3B001.c, because that paragraph was 
removed and reserved on September 20, 2016 (81 FR 64658).
    Note 2 is amended by harmonizing the scope of the paragraph to be 
``technology'' for integrated circuits controlled by 3A001.a.3 to a.14.
    Note 3 is added to exclude from 3E001 `Process Design Kits' 
(`PDKs') unless they include libraries implementing functions or 
technologies for items specified by 3A001. A Technical Note is added 
below Note 3 to define `Process Design Kit' (`PDK'). PDKs do not 
provide knowledge about production tools. This will not result in a 
change to license application submissions, because no license 
submissions have been submitted to BIS for PDK under 3E001.

Category 4--Computers

    In Note 2 at the top of Category 4, the double quotes are replaced 
with single quotes around the term `main storage' because the term is 
only used in these Category 4 Notes. The definition is moved from part 
772 to a Technical Note at the end of the Category 4 Notes section.

4A003 ``Digital Computers'', ``Electronic Assemblies'', and Related 
Equipment Therefor

    The Adjusted Peak Performance (APP) is raised from ``exceeding 16 
WT'' to ``exceeding 29 WT'' in Item paragraph .b and in accordance with 
this revision the APP is raised to 29 in the AT control text in the 
License Requirements table and in two places in the Note to the table. 
This change will not immediately affect the annual number of license 
application submissions to BIS because this is keeping up with 
technological advancement. However, absent additional increases next 
year, BIS estimates that this level would result in an increase of 600 
license applications per year.

4A004 Computers

    The double quotes are replaced with single quotes around the terms 
`systolic array computers,' `neural computers' and `optical computers,' 
because these terms are only used in this ECCN. The definitions for 
these terms are moved from part 772 to Technical Notes at the end of 
the Items paragraph of 4A004.

4D001 ``Software'' & 4E001 ``Technology''

    The Adjusted Peak Performance (APP) is raised from 16 Weighted 
TeraFLOPs (WT) to 29 WT in License Exceptions TSR and STA in accordance 
with the new APP level in 4A003.b. The APP control level is raised from 
``exceeding 8 WT'' to ``exceeding 15 WT'' in Item paragraph b.1. These 
revisions continue to address the need to track incremental (e.g., 
``Moore's Law'') improvements in microprocessor technology. This change 
will not affect the annual number of license application submissions to 
BIS because this is keeping up with technological advancement.

[[Page 53746]]

Technical Note on ``Adjusted Peak Performance'' (``APP'')

    In the Outline of ``APP'' calculation method, the Note to paragraph 
1, an ``and/or'' is replaced with ``or,'' which does not change the 
meaning at all.

Category 5--Part 1--``Telecommunications''

5A001 Telecommunications Systems, Equipment, ``Components'' and 
``Accessories''

    In the NS Column 1 paragraph of the License Requirements table, the 
order of the referenced Item paragraphs is corrected.
    For telecommunications equipment specially designed to withstand 
transitory electronic effects or electromagnetic pulse effects, the 
temperature range parameters is changed from ``to operate outside the 
temperature range from 218K (-55 [deg]C) to 397 K (124 [deg]C)'' to 
``below 218K (-55[deg]C)'' in Item paragraph a.3 or ``above 397 K (124 
[deg]C)'' in new Item paragraph a.4, which does not change the scope of 
control, but seeks to make the text easier to understand. The Note to 
5A001.a.3 is modified to add 5A001.a.4, so that it reads ``5A001.a.3 
and 5A001.a.4 apply only to electronic equipment''.
    Double quotes are replaced by single quotes around the term 
`electronically steerable phased array antennae' in Item paragraph .d. 
The word `antennas' is replaced with `antennae' in this paragraph and 
in Note 1 to this paragraph. The quotes are revised because the term is 
only used in this ECCN. The definition for the term is moved from part 
772 to a Technical Note above Item paragraph .e. Because of technology 
advances, phased array antennae are increasingly being developed for 
civil telecommunications applications, including cellular, WLAN, 
802.15, and wireless HDMI. Exclusion Note 2 is added in order to remove 
from control phased array antennae specially designed for those 
purposes.

Category 5--Part 2--``Information Security''

5A002 ``Information Security'' Systems, Equipment and ``Components''

    5A002 is amended to clarify controls on products with dormant 
encryption. These changes do not affect the scope of items controlled. 
Items paragraph .a is amended by replacing the phrase ``where that 
cryptographic capability is usable without ``cryptographic activation'' 
or has been activated'' with the phrase ``where that cryptographic 
capability is usable, has been activated, or can be activated by means 
of ``cryptographic activation'' not employing a secure mechanism''. The 
revision clarified that an item is controlled if (1) the `cryptography 
for data confidentially' is usable from the beginning regardless of 
``cryptographic activation'' (i.e., not dormant), (2) the cryptographic 
capability was previously dormant but is now usable (whether by 
``cryptographic activation'' or by other means; or (3) the 
``cryptographic activation'' mechanism is not secure (i.e., the 
cryptographic capability is not securely kept dormant).
    Items paragraph .b is amended by replacing ``to enable'' an item 
with ``for converting'' an item and replacing ``to achieve or exceed 
the controlled performance levels for functionality specified by 
5A002.a that would not otherwise be enabled'' with ``not specified by 
Category 5 --Part 2 into an item specified by 5A002.a or 5D002.c.1, and 
not released by the Cryptography Note (Note 3 in Category 5--Part 2), 
or for enabling, by means of ``cryptographic activation'', additional 
functionality specified by 5A002.a of an item already specified by 
Category 5--Part 2''. This clarifies that a ``cryptographic 
activation'' mechanism is controlled by 5A002.b in two situations: (1) 
It converts an item classified outside of Category 5--Part 2 into a 
5A002.a item (e.g., by activating `cryptography for data 
confidentiality' capability in an item that was previously limited to 
performing ``authentication,'' or by activating encryption capability 
which disqualifies a product from the Cryptography Note exclusion (Note 
3 in Category 5--Part 2)); or (2) it enables additional functionality 
specified in 5A002.a in an item that was already classified in Category 
5--Part 2 (e.g., making additional encryption algorithms usable by the 
item, or that would change the item from being eligible or described 
under Sec.  740.17(b)(1) into an item described under Sec.  
740.17(b)(2) or (3)).

5D002 ``Software'' and 5E002 ``Technology''

    Item paragraph .b of ECCNs 5D002 and 5E002 is amended by replacing 
``enable'' with ``for converting'' and replacing ``to meet the criteria 
for functionality specified by 5A002.a, that would not otherwise be 
met'' with ``not specified by Category 5--Part 2 into an item specified 
by 5A002.a or 5D002.c.1, and not released by the Cryptography Note 
(Note 3 in Category 5--Part 2), or for enabling, by means of 
``cryptographic activation'', additional functionality specified by 
5A002.a of an item already specified by Category 5--Part 2''. These 
revisions are made to create mirroring entries consistent with the 
changes being made to 5A002.b.

Category 6--Sensors and Lasers

6A002 Optical Sensors and Equipment, and ``Components''

    Item paragraph .f is added to establish a control for Read-Out 
Integrated Circuits (ROICs) to ensure that certain ROICs not controlled 
on the Munitions List, but that provide night vision capability, are 
controlled. In order to maintain consistent paragraph placement with 
the WA List this rule adds and reserves Items paragraph .e, so that 
ROICs can be added to Item paragraph .f. For consistency, Items 
paragraph .f is added to the Regional Stability controls (RS Column 1) 
in the License Requirements section, because 6A990, where ROICs were 
formerly controlled, was controlled for RS Column 1.

6A003 Cameras, Systems or Equipment, and ``Components'' Therefor

    Item paragraphs a.1 (high-speed cinema recording cameras) and a.2 
(mechanical high speed cameras) are removed and reserved because of the 
advancement of technology. Item paragraph a.3.a (mechanical streak 
cameras) is also removed because of the advancement of technology. As a 
result of this change, electronic streak cameras are moved from Item 
paragraph a.3.b to a.3. BIS anticipates that there will be a negligible 
impact on the annual number of license applications submitted to BIS as 
a result of these removals and revisions.

6A004 Optical Equipment and ``Components''

    The double quotes are replaced with single quotes around the term 
`deformable mirrors' in Item paragraph a.1 because the term is only 
used in this ECCN. The definition for `deformable mirrors' is moved 
from part 772 to the Technical Note below Item paragraph a.1.b.2. At 
the end of Item paragraph e.3 the period is changed to a semicolon, 
because a new Item paragraph is added. Dynamic wavefront measuring 
equipment is added to Item paragraph .f, with parameters in 
subparagraphs and a Technical Note at the end to define ``frame rate''. 
The purpose of wavefront sensing is to measure the level of the 
wavefront aberration as it is transferred through an optical system, 
regardless if the source of that aberration is the optical system 
itself or something external to that system. Wavefront sensors are 
principally used as one of the main components of adaptive optics

[[Page 53747]]

systems where they serve to close the control loop and feed the 
information about the required correction to deformable mirrors and 
beam steering mirrors in real-time, which are also controlled in this 
ECCN.

6A005 ``Lasers'', ``Components'' and Optical Equipment

    An editorial amendment is made to Note 1, below Item paragraph 
a.6.b.2, by replacing ``and/or'' with ``or'', which does not change the 
scope of the Note. The double quotes are replaced with single quotes 
around the term `transfer lasers' in Item paragraph d.5.c. The 
definition for `transfer lasers' is moved from part 772 to the 
Technical Note below Item paragraph d.5.c.2, because this term is only 
found in this ECCN.
    Item paragraph f.1 (dynamic wavefront (phase) measuring equipment) 
is removed and reserved, because this item is moved to ECCN 6A004.f, 
because of its close association to the mirrors controlled in 6A004. A 
Nota Bene is added to point to the new Item paragraph where this item 
is controlled.
    Item paragraph f.2 (``Laser'' diagnostic equipment) is amended by 
replacing ``capable of measuring'' with ``specially designed for 
dynamic measurement of'' and replacing ``equal to or less than'' with 
``and having an angular ``accuracy'' of'' to refine the scope of the 
entry. The phrase ``(microradians) or less (better)'' is added after 
``10 [mu]rad'' to clarify the unit. BIS does not anticipate and change 
to the annual number of license application submissions as a result of 
these changes.
    Item paragraph f.3 (Optical equipment and components) is amended by 
moving the phrase ``coherent beam combination'' for better readability. 
The ``accuracy'' parameter is cascaded down to Item paragraph f.3.b and 
a new ``accuracy'' parameter is added to f.3.a, so that the equipment 
is controlled if it meets either of the ``accuracy'' parameters.

6A008 Radar Systems, Equipment and Assemblies

    Item paragraph a.1 is amended by removing the double quotes around 
the term ``average output power'' in order to be consistent with the WA 
List.
    Item paragraph .e is amended by replacing ``steerable array 
antennas'' with ``scanned array antennae'' as well as adding a 
Technical Note to make people aware that electronically scanned array 
antennae are also known as electronically steerable array antennae. 
This revision uses more current, and standard, language to describe E-
scan radar.
    Double quotes are replaced by single quotes around the term 
`automatic target tracking' in Item paragraph l.1 and the definition is 
moved from part 772 to a Technical Note under the Note to 6A008.l.1, 
because this term only appears in this ECCN.
    Double quotes are replaced by single quotes around `geographically 
dispersed' in Item paragraph l.4 and the definition is moved from part 
772 to the Technical Note below Item paragraph l.4, because this term 
only appears in this ECCN.

6A203 High-Speed Cameras, Imaging Devices and ``Components'' Therefor

    The Related Controls paragraph is revised to remove a reference to 
ECCN 6A003.a.2, which is removed and reserved by this rule.

6A990 Read-Out Integrated Circuits and 6E990 Technology for ROICs

    ECCNs 6A990 and 6E990 are removed because this rule adds ROICs to 
ECCN 6A002.f.

6D003 Other ``Software''

    ECCN 6D003 is amended by removing the unnecessary word ``and'' in 
Item paragraph h.2 and replacing ``steerable phased array antennae'' 
with ``scanned array antennae'' in Item paragraph h.2.a in order to use 
a more standard term. Item paragraph h.2.a is also amended by replacing 
``controlled'' with ``specified'' in order to be more precise, because 
an item may or may not be controlled depending on the reasons for 
control and destination of the export.

6D991, 6E001 and 6E002

    Each of these ECCNs are amended to remove references to 6A990 or 
6E990, because this rule adds ROICs to ECCN 6A002.f. For consistency, 
the License Requirements sections of 6E001 and 6E002 are amended to add 
a reference to 6A002.f to the Regional Stability Column 1 controls, 
because this technology was controlled for Regional Stability Column 1 
under ECCN 6E990, where it was formerly controlled.

6E201 ``Technology'' According to the General Technology Note for the 
``USE'' of Equipment

    The Heading of ECCN 6E201 is revised to remove reference to 
6A003.a.2, which is removed and reserved by this rule.

Category 7--Navigation and Avionics

7A006 Airborne Altimeters

    Double quotes are replaced by single quotes around the term `power 
management' and the definition for the term is moved from part 772 to a 
Technical Note below Item paragraph .a because the term is only used in 
this ECCN.

7E004 Other ``Technology''

    Double quotes are replaced by single quotes around the term 
`primary flight control' in Item paragraph a.5 and the definition for 
the term is moved from part 772 to a Technical Note below Item 
paragraph .a.5 because the term is only used in this ECCN.
    Double quotes are replaced by single quotes around the term `flight 
control optical sensor array' in Item paragraph a.6 and the definition 
for the term is moved from part 772 to a Technical Note below Item 
paragraph a.6 because the term is only used in the ECCN.
    Double quotes are replaced by single quotes around the term `flight 
path optimization' in paragraph 1. of the Note to 7E004.b.5 and the 
definition is moved from part 772 to a Technical Note below the Note to 
7E004.b.5 because the term is only used in this ECCN.
    Double quotes are replaced by single quotes around the term 
`variable geometry airfoils' in Item paragraph c.3 and the definition 
for the term is moved from part 772 to a Technical Note below Item 
paragraph c.3 because the term only appears in this ECCN.

Category 9--Aerospace and Propulsion

9A002 ``Marine Gas Turbine Engines''

    The Heading is amended by revising and moving the parameter ``with 
an ISO standard continuous power rating of 24,245 kW or more and a 
specific fuel consumption not exceeding 0.219 kg/kWh in the power range 
from 35 to 100%'' to the Items paragraph and adding ``designed to use 
liquid fuel and having all of the following (see List of Items 
Controlled),'' to the Heading. The definition for `marine gas turbine 
engines' is moved from the Related Definition paragraph of the ECCN to 
a Note below Item paragraph .b in order to be more consistent with the 
WA list. Two parameters are added for this ECCN: Maximum continuous 
power and `corrected specific fuel consumption'. The definition for 
`corrected specific fuel consumption' is added to a Technical Note 
below the Note that is below Item paragraph .b. This change removes the 
ambiguity in this ECCN by removing the reference to power range. These 
revisions therefore do not change the scope of the existing control 
text, but rather clarify it by making it clear that the specific fuel 
consumption of concern applies at the ``turndown performance'' of 35%.

[[Page 53748]]

9A004 Space Launch Vehicles and ``Spacecraft'', ``Spacecraft Buses'', 
``Spacecraft Payloads'', ``Spacecraft'' On-board Systems or Equipment, 
and Terrestrial Equipment

    The scope of Item paragraph f.1 (Telemetry and telecommand 
equipment) is clarified by adding ``specially designed'' and two 
specific end uses in order to eliminate data processing equipment for 
mission data, such as GPS, science data, communication and 
broadcasting, since this data is not meant to be controlled under 
9A004.f.1. The scope of Item paragraph f.2 (Simulators) is narrowed by 
adding ``specially designed for `verification of operational 
procedures' of ``spacecraft''. A Technical Note is added below Item 
paragraph f.2 to define `verification of operational procedures.' These 
clarifications will not result in a change to the number of annual 
license application submissions to BIS.

9D001 and 9D002 ``Software''

    The Heading of 9D001 and 9D002 are amended by adding ``not 
specified in 9D003 or 9D004'' to clarify the scope of these entries and 
eliminate any possible overlap of control.

9D004 Other ``Software''

    Item paragraph .b (``Software'' for testing aero gas turbine 
engines, assemblies, ``parts'' or ``components'') is amended by 
removing the parameter and cascading subparagraphs with specific 
features or functions, such as ``specially designed'' for testing aero 
gas turbine engines . . . , to clarify and focus (narrow) the scope of 
control. A Note is added above Item paragraph .c to exclude software 
for operation of the test facility or operator safety, or production, 
repair or maintenance acceptance-testing . . .'' It is estimated that 
these changes will not affect the annual number of license application 
submissions to BIS.

9E003 Other ``Technology''

    In Technical Note 2 below Item paragraph a.2.d and in the Technical 
Note below Item paragraph a.5, the single quotes are replaced with 
double quotes around the term ``steady state mode'' because this term 
is also used in another ECCN 9A002.a. The definition for ``steady state 
mode'' is moved from the Technical Note 2 below a.5 to part 772 
``Definitions and Terms''.
    Technical Note 4 below the Note to 9E003.c is amended by removing 
``techniques'' and moving ``methods'' from the end of the Technical 
Note 4 to the top of Technical Note 4. Also revising the phrase 
``include ``laser'', water jet . . .'' to read `` ``include ``laser'' 
beam machining, water jet machining . . .'' to be consistent with the 
other types of machining specified in Technical Note 4.

Part 772--Definitions of Terms as Used in the Export Administration 
Regulations (EAR)

    This rule removes 37 definitions from Sec.  772.1 and adds them to 
the ECCNs where they are used. According to the WA drafting guidelines, 
if a term is only used in a single ECCN, then the definition must be 
located in a Technical Note close to where that term is used. However, 
if the term is separated by many subparagraphs, then the definition may 
be located in the Definitions section of the WA List. The following 37 
definitions are removed from part 772, because they are only used 
within a single ECCN: Automatic target tracking, carbon fiber preforms, 
commingled, comminution, compound rotary table, deformable mirrors, 
direct acting hydraulic pressing, effective gram, electronically 
steerable phased array antenna, flight control optical sensor array, 
flight path optimization, frequency mask trigger, frequency 
synthesizer, gas atomization, geographically dispersed, hot isostatic 
densification, linearity, main storage, mechanical alloying, melt 
extraction, melt spinning, neural computers, optical computer, plasma 
atomization, power management, previously separated, primary flight 
control, real-time bandwidth, resolution, rotary atomization, settling 
time, splat quenching, systolic array computer, transfer laser, vacuum 
atomization and variable geometry airfoils. The following definitions 
are revised for reasons stated either in the Federal Register 
instruction or under an ECCN where the term is used: Compensation 
systems, cryptographic activation, and user-accessible programmability. 
Two terms used in ECCNs 3A001 and 3A002 related to Analog-to-Digital 
Converters (ADC) are added to Sec.  772.1. The term ``sample rate'', 
which is used in both ECCN 3A001 and 3A002, is added to Sec.  772.1. 
The definition ``steady state mode'' is moved from Technical Note 2 to 
9E003.a.5 to Sec.  772.1 because it is now also used in a new parameter 
for `marine gas turbine engines' in ECCN 9A002, as well as in Technical 
Notes in 9E003.a.2.d and 9E003.a.5. The Category 5--Part 2 definition 
``cryptographic activation'' is amended by adding the word 
``specifically'' before ``activates or enables'', and taking the word 
``secure'' out of the definition, to fit with the changes being made in 
the control list entries that refer to this definition (ECCNs 5A002.b, 
5D002.b and 5E002.b).

Supplement No. 6 to Part 774--Sensitive List

    Paragraph (1)(i), ECCN 1A002, is amended by narrowing the scope 
from all of ECCN 1A002 to only subparagraph a.1 `` ``Composite'' 
structures or laminates made from an organic ``matrix'' and ``fibrous 
or filamentary materials'' specified by 1C010.c or 1C010.d'', because 
the rest of the items in ECCN 1A002 do not warrant control on the 
Sensitive List as they are not key technologies. This revision will 
minimally affect the annual number of Wassenaar reports to BIS.
    Paragraph (2)(i)--ECCN 2D001, (ii)--ECCN 2E001, and (iii)--ECCN 
2E002 are simplified and restructured for easier understanding and 
compliance. The revisions also focus the Sensitive List entries for 
software and technology for machine tools having a unidirectional 
repeatability at 0.9 microns. For machine tools having no variations 
specified at 0.9 microns, there is no change to the thresholds.

Supplement No. 7 to Part 774--Very Sensitive List

    Paragraph (1)(i), ECCN 1A002, is amended by narrowing the scope 
from subparagraph .a to subparagraph a.1 (``Composite'' structures or 
laminates made from an organic ``matrix'' and ``fibrous or filamentary 
materials'' specified by 1C010.c or 1C0010.d), because the rest of the 
items in ECCN 1A002.a do not warrant control on the Sensitive List as 
they are not key technologies. It is estimated that this will minimally 
affect the annual number of Wassenaar reports to BIS.
    Paragraphs (3)(iv), ECCN 6A001.a.2.c, and (3)(vi), ECCN 
6A002.a.2.f, are amended by replacing the phase ``user accessible 
programmability'' with ``user-accessible programmability'' to add a 
hyphen for correctness.

Section 740.16 Additional Permissive Reexports (APR)

    License Exception APR is amended to remove a reference to ECCN 
6A990 in paragraphs (a)(2) and (b)(2)(v), because ECCN 6A990 is removed 
from the CCL by this rule. ROICs are now specified in 6A002.f.

Section 740.17 Encryption Commodities, Software and Technology (ENC)

    License Exception ENC is corrected to replace a reference to 
5D002.d with a reference to 5D002.b in the Note to paragraph (b)(2) and 
in paragraph (b)(3)(iv).

[[Page 53749]]

Section 740.20 License Exception Strategic Trade Authorization (STA)

    License Exception STA is amended to remove reference to ECCNs 6A990 
and 6E990 from paragraph (b)(2)(x), because these ECCNs are removed 
from the CCL. ROICs are now specified in 6A002.f and ROIC technology is 
specified in ECCNs 6E001 and 6E002.

Section 742.6 Regional Stability

    Paragraph (b)(1)(ii) is amended by removing reference to ECCN 
6E990, because this ECCN is removed by this rule. ROIC technology is 
now controlled under ECCNs 6E001 and 6E002.

Section 744.9 Restrictions on Exports, Reexports, and Transfers (In-
Country) of Certain Cameras, Systems, or Related Components

    Section 744.9 is amended by removing reference to ECCN 6A990 from 
paragraphs (a) and (b), because this ECCN is removed from the CCL. 
ROICs are now controlled under ECCN 6A002.f.

Export Control Reform Act of 2018

    On August 13, 2018, the President signed into law the John S. 
McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which 
included the Export Control Reform Act of 2018 (ECRA) (Title XVII, 
Subtitle B of Pub. L. 115-232) that provides the legal basis for BIS's 
principal authorities and serves as the authority under which BIS 
issues this rule. As set forth in Section 1768 of ECRA, all 
delegations, rules, regulations, orders, determinations, licenses, or 
other forms of administrative action that have been made, issued, 
conducted, or allowed to become effective under the Export 
Administration Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. 4601 et seq.) (as in effect prior 
to August 13, 2018 and as continued in effect pursuant to the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) 
and Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001, 3 CFR, 2001 Comp., p. 783 
(2002), as amended by Executive Order 13637 of March 8, 2013, 78 FR 
16129 (March 13, 2013), and as extended by the Notice of August 8, 
2018, 83 FR 39871 (August 13, 2018)), or the Export Administration 
Regulations, and are in effect as of August 13, 2018, shall continue in 
effect according to their terms until modified, superseded, set aside, 
or revoked under the authority of ECRA.

Saving Clause

    Shipments of items removed from license exception eligibility or 
eligibility for export, reexport or transfer (in-country) without a 
license as a result of this regulatory action that were on dock for 
loading, on lighter, laden aboard an exporting carrier, or en route 
aboard a carrier to a port of export, on October 24, 2018, pursuant to 
actual orders for exports, reexports and transfers (in-country) to a 
foreign destination, may proceed to that destination under the previous 
license exception eligibility or without a license so long as they have 
been exported, reexported or transferred (in-country) before December 
24, 2018. Any such items not actually exported, reexported or 
transferred (in-country) before midnight, on December 24, 2018, require 
a license in accordance with this final rule.

Executive Order Requirements

    Executive Orders 13563 and 12866 direct agencies to assess all 
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, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility.
    This rule has been designated a ``significant regulatory action'' 
under Executive Order 12866. The Wassenaar Arrangement (WA) has been 
established in order to contribute to regional and international 
security and stability, by promoting transparency and greater 
responsibility in transfers of conventional arms and dual-use goods and 
technologies, thus preventing destabilizing accumulations. The aim is 
also to prevent the acquisition of these items by terrorists. There are 
presently 42 Participating States, including the United States, that 
seek through their national policies to ensure that transfers of these 
items do not contribute to the development or enhancement of military 
capabilities that undermine these goals, and to ensure that these items 
are not diverted to support such military capabilities that undermine 
these goals. Implementation of the WA agreements in a timely manner 
enhances the national security of the United States and global 
international trade.
    This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications as 
that term is defined under Executive Order 13132.
    This rule is not subject to the requirements of E.O. 13771 (82 FR 
9339, February 3, 2017) because it is issued with respect to a national 
security function of the United States.

Paperwork Reduction Act Requirements

    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required 
to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a penalty for failure 
to comply with a collection of information subject to the requirements 
of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (PRA), 
unless that collection of information displays a currently valid Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number.
    This rule involves the following OMB approved collections of 
information subject to the PRA: 0694-0088, ``Multi-Purpose 
Application'', and carries a burden hour estimate of 29.6 minutes for a

Administrative Procedure Act and Regulatory Flexibility Act 
Requirements

    The provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) 
requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, the opportunity for public 
participation, and a delay in effective date, are inapplicable because 
this action involves a military and foreign affairs function of the 
United States (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). Immediate implementation of

[[Page 53750]]

these amendments fulfills the United States' international commitments 
to the WA. The WA is committed to contributing to regional and 
international security and stability by promoting responsibility and 
transparency in the global arms trade, and preventing destabilizing 
accumulations of arms. As a Participating State, the United States is 
charged with implementing the agreed list changes as soon as possible 
after approval. Because the United States is a significant exporter of 
the list items discussed in this rule, implementation of this provision 
is necessary for the WA to achieve its purpose, and will enhance the 
national security of the United States and global international trade.
    Although the APA requirements in section 553 are not applicable to 
this action under the provisions of paragraph (a)(1), this action also 
falls within two other exceptions in the section. The subsection (b) 
requirement that agencies publish a notice of proposed rulemaking that 
includes information on the public proceedings does not apply when an 
agency for good cause finds that the notice and public procedures are 
impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, and the 
agency incorporates the finding (and reasons therefor) in the rule that 
is issued (5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B)). In addition, the section 553(d) 
requirement that publication of a rule shall be made not less than 30 
days before its effective date can be waived if an agency finds there 
is good cause to do so.
    The section 553 requirements for notice and public procedures and 
for a delay in the date of effectiveness do not apply to this rule, as 
there is good cause to waive such practices. Delay in implementation 
would disrupt the movement of these potential national-security 
controlled items globally, creating disharmony between export control 
measures implemented by the 42 WA Participating States. Export controls 
work best when all countries implement the same export controls in a 
timely manner. Delaying this rulemaking would prevent the United States 
from fulfilling its commitment to the WA in a timely manner, would 
injure the credibility of the United States in this and other 
multilateral regimes, and may impair the international community's 
ability to effectively control the export of national security 
controlled items. Therefore, this regulation is issued in final form, 
and is effective October 24, 2018.
    Further, no other law requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking 
and an opportunity for public comment be given for this final rule. 
Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public 
comment are not required to be given for this rule under the 
Administrative Procedure Act or by any other law, the analytical 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) 
are not applicable. Accordingly, no regulatory flexibility analysis is 
required and none has been prepared.

Mechanisms for ``cryptographic activation'' can, for example, be 
serial number-based license keys or authentication instruments such 
as digitally signed certificates.

* * * * *
    Interleaved Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC). (Cat 3) Devices that 
have multiple ADC units that sample the same analog input at different 
times such that when the outputs are aggregated, the analog input has 
been effectively sampled and converted at a higher sampling rate.
* * * * *
    Multiple channel Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC). (Cat 3) Devices 
that integrate more than one ADC, designed so that each ADC has a 
separate analog input.
* * * * *
    Sample rate. (Cat 3) For an Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) the 
maximum number of samples that are measured at the analog input over a 
period of one second, except for oversampling ADCs. For oversampling 
ADCs the ``sample rate'' is taken to be its output word rate. ``Sample 
rate'' may also be referred to as sampling rate, usually specified in 
Mega Samples Per Second (MSPS) or Giga Samples Per Second (GSPS), or 
conversion rate, usually specified in Hertz (Hz).

[[Page 53762]]


    Technical Notes: 
    1. A resolution of n bit corresponds to a quantization of 2\n\ 
levels.
    2. The resolution of the ADC is the number of bits of the 
digital output that represents the measured analog input. Effective 
Number of Bits (ENOB) is not used to determine the resolution of the 
ADC.
    3. For ``multiple channel ADCs'', the ``sample rate'' is not 
aggregated and the ``sample rate'' is the maximum rate of any single 
channel.
    4. For ``interleaved ADCs'' or for ``multiple channel ADCs'' 
that are specified to have an interleaved mode of operation, the 
``sample rates'' are aggregated and the ``sample rate'' is the 
maximum combined total rate of all of the interleaved channels.

    a.5.b. Digital-to-Analog Converters (DAC) having any of the 
following:
    a.5.b.1. A resolution of 10 bit or more with an `adjusted update

68 dBc (carrier) when synthesizing a full scale analog signal of 100 
MHz or the highest full scale analog signal frequency specified 
below 100 MHz.

    Technical Notes: 
    1. `Spurious Free Dynamic Range' (SFDR) is defined as the ratio 
of the RMS value of the carrier frequency (maximum signal component) 
at the input of the DAC to the RMS value of the next largest noise 
or harmonic distortion component at its output.
    2. SFDR is determined directly from the specification table or 
from the characterization plots of SFDR versus frequency.
    3. A signal is defined to be full scale when its amplitude is 
greater than -3 dBfs (full scale).
    4. `Adjusted update rate' for DACs is:
    a. For conventional (non-interpolating) DACs, the `adjusted 
update rate' is the rate at which the digital signal is converted to 
an analog signal and the output analog values are changed by the 
DAC. For DACs where the interpolation mode may be bypassed 
(interpolation factor of one), the DAC should be considered as a 
conventional (non-interpolating) DAC.
    b. For interpolating DACs (oversampling DACs), the `adjusted 
update rate' is defined as the DAC update rate divided by the 
smallest interpolating factor. For interpolating DACs, the `adjusted 
update rate' may be referred to by different terms including:
     Input data rate.
     input word rate.
     input sample rate.

43. In supplement no. 1 to part 774, Category 4, the Technical Note on 
``Adjusted Peak Performance'' (``APP'') is revised to read as follows:

    Technical Note on ``Adjusted Peak Performance'' (``APP'') 
    ``APP'' is an adjusted peak rate at which ``digital computers'' 
perform 64-bit or larger floating point additions and 
multiplications.


    Abbreviations used in this Technical Note 
    n number of processors in the ``digital computer''
    I processor number (i . . . . n)
    ti processor cycle time (ti = 1/
Fi)
    Fi processor frequency
    Ri peak floating point calculating rate
    Wi architecture adjustment factor
    ``APP'' is expressed in Weighted TeraFLOPS (WT), in units of 
10\12\ adjusted floating point operations per second.


    Outline of ``APP'' calculation method 
    1. For each processor i, determine the peak number of 64-bit or 
larger floating-point operations, FPOi, performed per 
cycle for each processor in the ``digital computer''.


    Note: In determining FPO, include only 64-bit or larger floating 
point additions or multiplications. All floating point operations 
must be expressed in operations per processor cycle; operations 
requiring multiple cycles may be expressed in fractional results per 
cycle. For processors not capable of performing calculations on 
floating-point operands of 64-bits or more the effective calculating 
rate R is zero.
    2. Calculate the floating point rate R for each processor
    Ri = FPOi/ti.
    3. Calculate ``APP'' as
    ``APP'' = W1 x R1 + W2 x 
R2 + . . . + Wn x Rn.
    4. For `vector processors'', Wi = 0.9. For non-
`vector processors', Wi = 0.3.


    Note 1:  For processors that perform compound operations in a 
cycle, such as an addition and multiplication, each operation is 
counted.


    Note 2: For a pipelined processor the effective calculating rate 
R is the faster of the pipelined rate, once the pipeline is full, or 
the non-pipelined rate.


    Note 3:  The calculating rate R of each contributing processor 
is to be calculated at its maximum value theoretically possible 
before the ``APP'' of the combination is derived. Simultaneous 
operations are assumed to exist when the computer manufacturer 
claims concurrent, parallel, or simultaneous operation or execution 
in a manual or brochure for the computer.


    Note 4:  Do not include processors that are limited to input/
output and peripheral functions (e.g., disk drive, communication and 
video display) when calculating ``APP''.


    Note 5:  ``APP'' values are not to be calculated for processor 
combinations(inter)connected by ``Local Area Networks'', Wide Area 
Networks, I/O shared connections/devices, I/O controllers and any 
communication interconnection implemented by ``software''.


    Note 6:  ``APP'' values must be calculated for processor 
combinations containing processors ``specially designed'' to enhance 
performance by aggregation, operating simultaneously and sharing 
memory.


    Technical Notes 
    1. Aggregate all processors and accelerators operating 
simultaneously and located on the same die.
    2. Processor combinations share memory when any processor is 
capable of accessing any memory location in the system through the 
hardware transmission of cache lines or memory words, without the 
involvement of any software mechanism, which may be achieved using 
``electronic assemblies'' specified in 4A003.c.


    Note 7:  A `vector processor' is defined as a processor with 
built-in instructions that perform multiple calculations on 
floating-point vectors (one-dimensional arrays of 64-

[[Page 53773]]

bit or larger numbers) simultaneously, having at least 2 vector 
functional units and at least 8 vector registers of at least 64 
elements each.
