Title: Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to Make the Commerce Control List (CCL) Clearer 
Abstract: This final rule implements changes to the make the Commerce Control List (CCL) clearer. This final rule implements changes that were proposed on November 29, 2012 in a proposed rulemaking entitled Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) To Make the Commerce Control List (Clearer). The November 29 proposed rulemaking was also informed by public comments received in response to 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 that was published by BIS on December 9, 2010, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). 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. The November 29 proposed rule proposed various changes identified by BIS and the public that would make the CCL clearer. As was noted in the November 29 proposed rule, this final rule would only implement changes that can be made to the CCL without requiring changes to multilateral export control regime guidelines or lists. However, BIS has identified changes that would require a decision of a multilateral regime to implement. For those changes, the U.S. Government is developing regime change proposals for consideration by members of those multilateral export control regimes. BIS will implement those changes in separate rulemakings, if approved by the respective multilateral export control regimes.
