On June 4, 2018, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) published in the Federal Register a final rule [Docket No. 170306234–8444–02] to make certain conforming changes based on the revisions to Export Control Classification Number (ECCN) 1C350 on the Commerce Control List (CCL) contained in a final rule published on April 2, 2018. That final rule amended the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to implement the recommendations presented at the February 2017 Australia Group (AG) Intersessional Implementation Meeting, and later adopted pursuant to the AG silent approval procedure, and the recommendations made at the June 2017 AG Plenary Implementation Meeting and adopted by the AG Plenary. Among other changes, the April 2, 2018, final rule amended ECCN 1C350 by renumbering paragraphs .b through .d in alphabetical order. Following the publication of that rule, however, certain references to ECCN 1C350.c and 1C350.d in the description of items eligible under the validated end-user authorization (VEU) provisions of the EAR no longer identified the correct subparagraphs in ECCN 1C350 because the rule inadvertently failed to update the references to ECCN 1C350.c and 1C350.d in the description of eligible items for three of the validated endusers identified in Supplement No. 7 to part 748 (Authorization Validated EndUser (VEU)) of the EAR. This final rule amends the VEU provisions to provide the correct references to eligible items in ECCN 1C350 for three validated end-users.
