Executive Order 12924--Continuation of Export Control Regulations


August 19, 1994

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and 
the laws of the United States of America, including but not limited to 
section 203 of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (``Act'') 
(50 U.S.C. 1702), I, William J. Clinton, President of the United States 
of America, find that the unrestricted access of foreign parties to U.S. 
goods, technology, and technical data and the existence of certain 
boycott practices of foreign nations, in light of the expiration of the 
Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2401 et 
seq.), constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States and hereby 
declare a national emergency with respect to that threat.
    Accordingly, in order (a) to exercise the necessary vigilance over 
exports and activities affecting the national security of the United 
States; (b) to further significantly the foreign policy of the United 
States, including its policy with respect to cooperation by U.S. persons 
with certain foreign boycott activities, and to fulfill its 
international responsibilities; and (c) to protect the domestic economy 
from the excessive drain of scarce materials and reduce the serious 
economic impact of foreign demand, it is hereby ordered as follows:
    Section 1. To the extent permitted by law, the provisions of the 
Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, and the provisions for 
administration of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, 
shall be carried out under this order so as to continue in full force 
and effect and amend, as necessary, the export control system heretofore 
maintained by the Export Administration regulations issued under the 
Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended. The delegations of 
authority set forth in Executive Order No. 12002 of July 7, 1977, as 
amended by Executive Order No. 12755 of March 12, 1991; Executive Order 
No. 12214 of May 2, 1980; Executive Order No. 12735 of November 16, 
1990; and Executive Order No. 12851 of June 11, 1993, shall be 
incorporated in this order and shall apply to the exercise of 
authorities under this order.
    Sec. 2. All rules and regulations issued or continued in effect by 
the Secretary of Commerce under the authority of the Export 
Administration Act of 1979, as amended, including those published in 
Title 15, Subtitle B, Chapter VII, Subchapter C, of the Code of Federal 
Regulations, Parts 768 through 799, and all orders, regulations, 
licenses, and other forms of administrative action issued, taken, or 
continued in effect pursuant thereto, shall, until amended or revoked by 
the Secretary of Commerce, remain in full force and effect as if issued 
or taken pursuant to this order, except that the provisions of sections 
203(b)(2) and 206 of the Act (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2) and 1705) shall 
control over any inconsistent provisions in the regulations. Nothing in 
this section shall affect the continued applicability of administrative 
sanctions provided for by the regulations described above.
    Sec. 3. Provisions for administration of section 38(e) of the Arms 
Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778(e)) may be made and shall continue in 
full force and effect until amended or revoked under the authority of 
section 203 of the Act (50 U.S.C. 1702). To the extent permitted by law, 
this order also shall constitute authority for the issuance and 
continuation in full force and effect of all rules and regulations by 
the President or his delegate, and all orders, licenses, and other forms 
of administrative actions issued, taken, or continued in effect pursuant 
thereto, relating to the administration of section 38(e).

[[Page 1694]]

    Sec. 4. Executive Order No. 12923 of June 30, 1994, is revoked, and 
that declaration of emergency is rescinded. The revocation of Executive 
Order No. 12923 shall not affect any violation of any rules, 
regulations, orders, licenses, and other forms of administrative action 
under that order that occurred during the period the order was in 
effect.
    Sec. 5. This order shall be effective as of midnight between August 
20, 1994, and August 21, 1994, and shall remain in effect until 
terminated.
                                            William J. Clinton
The White House,
August 19, 1994.

1994]

Message to the Congress on Continuation of Export Control Regulations

August 19, 1994

To the Congress of the United States:

    Pursuant to section 204(b) of the International Emergency Economic 
Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1703(b), I hereby report to the Congress that I 
have today exercised the authority granted by this Act to continue in 
effect the system of controls contained in 15 C.F.R., Parts 768-799, 
including restrictions on participation by U.S. persons in certain 
foreign boycott activities, which heretofore have been maintained under 
the authority of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, 50 
U.S.C. App. 2401 et seq. In addition, I have made provision for the 
administration of section 38(e) of the Arms Export Control Act, 22 
U.S.C. 278(e).
    The exercise of this authority is necessitated by the expiration of 
the Export Administration Act on August 20, 1994, and the lapse that 
would result in the system of controls maintained under that Act.
    In the absence of controls, foreign parties would have unrestricted 
access to U.S. commercial products, technology, technical data, and 
assistance, posing an unusual and extraordinary threat to national 
security, foreign policy, and economic objectives critical to the United 
States. In addition, U.S. persons would not be prohibited from complying 
with certain foreign boycott requests. This would seriously harm our 
foreign policy interests, particularly in the Middle East.
    Controls established in 15 C.F.R. 768-799, and continued by this 
action, include the following:
    --National security export controls aimed at restricting the export 
of goods and technologies, which would make a significant contribution 
to the military potential of certain other countries and which would 
prove detrimental to the national security of the United States.
    --Foreign policy controls that further the foreign policy objectives 
of the United States or its declared international obligations in such 
widely recognized areas as human rights, antiterrorism, regional 
stability, missile technology nonproliferation, and chemical and 
biological weapons nonproliferation.
    --Nuclear nonproliferation controls that are maintained for both 
national security and foreign policy reasons, and which support the 
objectives of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Act.
    --Short supply controls that protect domestic supplies, and 
antiboycott regulations that prohibit compliance with foreign boycotts 
aimed at countries friendly to the United States.
    Consequently, I have issued an Executive order (a copy of which is 
attached) to continue in effect all rules and regulations issued or 
continued in effect by the Secretary of Commerce under the authority of 
the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, and all orders, 
regulations, licenses, and other forms of administrative actions under 
the Act, except where they are inconsistent with sections 203(b) and 206 
of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA). In this 
Executive order I have also revoked the previous Executive Order No. 
12923 of June 30, 1994, invoking IEEPA authority for the prior lapse of 
the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, extended on July 5, 
1994, by Public Law 103-277.

[[Page 1695]]

    The Congress and the Executive have not permitted export controls to 
lapse since they were enacted under the Export Control Act of 1949. Any 
termination of controls could permit transactions to occur that would be 
seriously detrimental to the national interests we have heretofore 
sought to protect through export controls and restrictions on compliance 
by U.S. persons with certain foreign boycotts. I believe that even a 
temporary lapse in this system of controls would seriously damage our 
national security, foreign policy, and economic interests and undermine 
our credibility in meeting our international obligations.
    The countries affected by this action vary depending on the
