Waiver of Missile Technology Proliferation Sanctions on Foreign 
Persons

AGENCY: Department of State.

ACTION: Determination of notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    On November 1, 1994, the Under Secretary of State for Arms Control 
and International Security Affairs executed the following 
determination:
    On August 24, 1993, I determined that the Chinese Ministry of 
Aerospace Industry, to include China Precision Machinery Import/Export 
Corporation (CPMIEC), had engaged in missile technology proliferation 
activities that required the imposition of the sanctions described in 
Section 73(a)(2)(A) of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 
279b(a)(2)(A)) and Section 11B(b)(1)(B)(i) of the Export Administration 
Act of 1979 (50 U.S.C. app. 2410b(b)(1)(B)(i)). Accordingly, the 
required sanctions were imposed.
    Pursuant to section 73(e) of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 
22797b(e)) and section 11B(b)(5) of the Export Administration Act of 
1979 (50 U.S.C. app. 2401b(b)(5)), I hereby determine that it is 
essential to the national security of the United States to waive these 
sanctions with respect to the foreign person named above.
    This waiver shall take effect immediately, 20 working days having 
elapsed since my intention to waive these sanctions was notified to the 
Congress. The waiver shall remain in effect unless revoked.

    Signed:
Lynn E. Davis,
Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security Affairs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This waiver also applies to the divisions, 
subunits, and any successor entities of the Chinese Ministry of 
Aerospace Industry, to include China Precision Machinery Import/Export 
Corporation (CPMIEC). Such additional entities include, but are not 
limited to: China National Space Administration, China Aerospace 
Corporation, China Precision Machinery Import-Export Corporation, China 
Great Wall Industrial Corporation or Group, Chinese Academy of Space 
Technology, Beijing Wan Yuan Industry Corporation (a/k/a Wanyuan 
Company or China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology), China Haiying 
Company, Shanghai Astronautics Industry Bureau, and China Chang Feng 
Group (a/k/a China Changfeng Company).
    As a result of this waiver, the U.S. government will no longer be 
required to deny licenses for exports to the entities described above 
or to activities of the Chinese government relating to missile 
development or production or affecting the development or production of 
electronics, space systems, or equipment, and military aircraft of 
Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) Annex equipment or technology. 
In addition, U.S. government contracts related to MTCR Annex items no 
longer are prohibited with these entities.
    The waiver takes effect as of November 1, 1994, and shall remain in 
effect unless revoked.
    The waiver does not apply to the Pakistani Ministry of Defense (and 
its divisions, subunits or successors), which also was sanctioned on 
August 24, 1993. Those sanctions remain in place. (See Public Notice 
11857, Federal Register Vol. 58, No. 165, 9/27/93.)

    Dated: November 1, 1994.
