BIS Amends EAR per Wassenaur Revisions

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issued a final rule in the Federal Register stating that, effective December 11, 2009, revises the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement changes to the Wassenaar Arrangement's List of Dual-Use Goods and Technologies. The changes were agreed upon by participating countries during Wassenaur Arrangement's plenary session in December 2010. The U.S., as a participating member of the Wassenaur Arrangement, must modify the Commerce Control List (CCL) in order to incorporate these changes. 

The final rule amends CCL categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (Parts 1 and 2), 6, 7, 8 and 9, as well as Definitions and Reports sections.
