Title: Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to Make the Commerce Control List (CCL) Clearer 
Abstract: On December 9, 2010 (75 FR 76664), the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking entitled Commerce Control List: Revising Descriptions of Items and Foreign Availability as part of the Presidents Export Control Reform (ECR) Initiative. The December 9, 2010 notice sought, among other things, public comments on how descriptions of items controlled on the Commerce Control List (CCL) could be made clearer. This proposed rule would implement changes identified by BIS and the public that would make the CCL clearer. Although these revisions originated with the ECR initiative, this proposed rule is entirely consistent in spirit and substance with Executive Order 13563, under which agencies are to conduct retrospective analyses of their regulations to identify and remedy any unnecessary compliance burden caused by rules that are unduly complex, outmoded, inconsistent, or overlapping. In Executive Order 13563, the President directed each agency to review its existing significant regulations, and consider how best to promote retrospective analysis of rules that may be outmoded, ineffective, insufficient, or excessively burdensome, and to modify, streamline, expand, or repeal them in accordance with what has been learned.
