The U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published a final rule today that amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement the understandings reached at the June 2010 plenary meeting of the Australia Group (AG). These changes include making certain AG-related editorial clarifications and corrections to the EAR.

According to the BIS Federal Register notice, "[c]onsistent with the June 2010 AG understandings, this rule amends the chemical manufacturing equipment entry on the Commerce Control List (CCL) of the EAR to reflect the addition of two parenthetical phrases that clarify the description of certain "materials" contained in items on the AG "Control List of Dual-Use Chemical Manufacturing Facilities and Equipment and Related Technology and Software." In addition, this rule makes AG-related clarifications and corrections to the EAR."

The purpose of this rule is to ensure that the AG-related entries on the CCL conform with the wording in the AG Control Lists (as updated by the understandings reached at the 2010 AG Plenary) and to clarify the meaning of terms used in these entries including certain "valves" as well as items under the "List of Biological Agents for Export Control," and the AG "List of Animal Pathogens for Export Control." 

We will update our clients who are affected by these changes in the near future. The complete Federal Register notice is available here.
