Bureau of Industry and Security
This rule revises and clarifies the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) provisions that apply specifically to Iran in order to promote consistency, reduce redundancy and clarify the role of the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) in connection with the implementation of United States export control policy towards Iran. It establishes a new license requirement for reexports of items classified under ten Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) that previously did not require a license for reexport to Iran under the EAR. This rule also imposes license requirements on parties who have been listed as proliferators of weapons of mass destruction or as supporters of such proliferators pursuant to Executive Order 13382. BIS is making these changes to provide greater clarity and consistency with respect to policies towards Iran and to harmonize BIS license requirements with Department of the Treasury license requirements regarding proliferators of weapons of mass destruction.
