The President
                Executive Order 12923 of June 30, 1994

 
Continuation of Export Control Regulations

                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 with respect to 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 contained 
                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).

                Sec. 4. This order shall be effective as of midnight 
                between June 30, 1994, and July 1, 1994, and shall 
                remain in effect until terminated. It is my intention 
                to terminate this order upon the enactment into law of 
                a bill reauthorizing the authorities contained in the 
                Export Administration Act.

                    (Presidential Sig.)>


                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    June 30, 1994.
