             Removal of General License G-FTZ; Exports of Petroleum 
             Commodities From U.S. Foreign-Trade Zones and Fom Guam 
 
                            [Docket No. 900408-0108]

                                 June 25, 1990 
 
 
ACTION: Final rule. 
 
 
SUMMARY: This rule removes from the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)
@ 771.7, "General License G-FTZ; exports of petroleum commodities from U.S. 
foreign-trade zones and from Guam." In 1985, the Department of Commerce 
eliminated the validated license requirement for exports of petroleum 
products from U.S. foreign-trade zones and Guam. Because petroleum exports 
from foreign-trade zones and Guam now can be sent from @ 771.16, "General 
License G-NNR; shipments of certain non-naval reserve petroleum 
commodities", General License G-FTZ is unnecessary. This rule, which 
removes all references to General License G-FTZ in the EAR, amends 
parts 771, 774 and 777. Section 771.7, where General License G-FTZ appeared,
is reserved. 
 
 
EFFECTIVE DATE: This rule is effective June 25, 1990.

TEXT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
 
 
Rulemaking Requirements 
 
   1. This rule is consistent with Executive Orders 12291 and 12661.  
 
   2. This rule eliminates a collection of information subject to the 
requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq.). This collection had been approved by the Office of Management and 
Budget under control number 0694-0037. 
 
   3. This rule does not contain policies with Federalism implications 
sufficient to warrant preparation of a Federalism assessment under 
Executive Order 12612. 
 
   4. Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public
comment are not required to be given for this rule by section 553 of the  
 
Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553), or by any other law, under 
sections 603(a) and 604(a) of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 
603(a) and 604(a)), no initial or final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis 
has to be or will be prepared. 
 
   5. Section 13(a) of the Export Administration Act of 1979 (EAA), as 
amended (50 U.S.C. app. 2412(a)), exempts this rule from all requirements 
of section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553), 
including those requiring publication of a notice of proposed rulemaking, 
an opportunity for public comment, and a delay in effective date. This 
rule also is exempt from these APA requirements because it involves a 
foreign and military affairs function of the United States. Section 13(b) 
of the EAA does not require that this rule be published in proposed form 
because this rule does not impose a new control. Further, no other law 
requires that a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for public 
comment be given for this rule.  
 
   Accordingly, it is being issued in final form. However, comments from 
the public are always welcome. Comments should be submitted to Sharon 
Gongwer, Office of Technology and Policy Analysis, Bureau of Export 
Administration, Department of Commerce, P.O. Box 273, Washington, DC 20044.
