Title: Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Harmonization of the Destination Control Statements 
Abstract: This final rule implements changes that were proposed on May 22, 2015, in a proposed rule entitled Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations (EAR): Harmonization of the Destination Control Statements, (80 FR 29551). This final rule revises the destination control statement in 758.6 of the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to harmonize the statement required for the export of items subject to the EAR with the destination control statement in 123.9(b)(1) of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). This final rule is published in conjunction with the publication of a Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls final rule revising 123.9(b)(1) of the ITAR. Both final rules being published by the Departments of Commerce and State are part of the President's Export Control Reform Initiative. This final rule is also part of Commerce's retrospective regulatory review plan under Executive Order (E.O.) 13563 (see the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for availability of the plan).
