Export-related non-tariff measure, nes

The U.S. Department of State is amending the International Traffic in Arms Regulations to implement a statutory provision (section 520 of the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act 2012 'P.L.112-55') regarding the exemption from licensing for export to Canada of firearms components not exceeding $500 in value. Pursuant to section 520, the department cannot require a license for the export of certain firearms and firearms components for end-use by the Canadian government with a total transaction value not exceeding $500 wholesale, and cannot require a license for the export of certain firearms components for end-use in Canada with a total transaction value not exceeding $500 wholesale. ITAR Sec.123.17 is revised accordingly. In addition, ITAR Sec.123.16(b)(6) is amended to remove the words 'for personal use,' as the firearms exemption at ITAR Sec.123.17 includes use of the exemption for an end-use other than personal use.
