DEPARTMENT OF STATE

22 CFR Part 121

[Public Notice 4209]

RIN AB-60

Amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, United States Munitions List

AGENCY: Department of State.
ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Department of State is revising Category V--Explosives, Propellants, Incendiary Agents, and Their Constituents and Category XIV--Toxicological Agents and Equipment and Radiological Equipment, of the U.S. Munitions List (USML). Amendments are made to the titles of both categories to better reflect the items included in the category and to move the texts of the definitional and interpretive provisions to the appropriate category. Also, to assist exporters, Category V and XIV are reformatted to identify the items by their predominant use. Exporters are also being provided Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) numbers and Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) references. In addition to reformatting and changes in the language for clarification, Category XIV and Category V are revised to move from the USML to the jurisdiction of the Department of Commerce several items that have been identified as having predominantly commercial application and no significant military applicability. The items so transferred in Category XIV are fluorine, liquid pepper and chloropicrin. The items so transferred in Category V are nitroguanidine (NG), guanidine nitrate, compounds composed of fluorine and one or more of the following: Other halogens, oxygen, nitrogen, and propyleneimide 2-methylaziridine, unless the articles are compounded or mixed with any item controlled by the USML.
