     January 10, 2000
     Billing Code: 3510 33-P


     Bureau of Export Administration

     15 CFR Parts 734, 740, 742, 770, 772, and 774

     [Docket No. ]

     RIN: 0694-AC11

     Revisions to Encryption Items

     AGENCY: Bureau of Export Administration, Commerce

     ACTION: Interim final; request for comments.

SUMMARY: This rule amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) 
to allow the export and reexport of any encryption commodity or 
software to individuals, commercial firms, and other non-government 
end-users in all destinations. It also allows exports and reexports 
of retail encryption commodities and software to all end-users in all 
destinations. Post-export reporting requirements are streamlined, and 
changes are made to reflect amendments to the Wassenaar Arrangement. 
This rule implements the encryption policy announced by the White 
House on September 16 and will simplify U.S. encryption export rules. 
Restrictions on terrorist supporting states (Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, 
North Korea, Sudan or Syria), their nationals and other sanctioned 
entities are not changed by this rule.
