                Executive Order 12930 of September 29, 1994


Measures To Restrict the Participation by United 
                States Persons in Weapons Proliferation Activities

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including section 203 of the International 
                Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1702), the 
                National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), and 
                section 301 of title 3 of the United States Code,

                I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the United States 
                of America, find that the proliferation of nuclear, 
                biological, and chemical weapons, and of the means of 
                delivering such weapons, constitutes an unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign 
                policy, and economy of the United States, and hereby 
                declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

                Accordingly, in order to limit the participation by 
                United States persons in weapons proliferation 
                activities, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. The Secretary of Commerce, in consultation 
                with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized and 
                directed to take such actions, including the 
                promulgation of rules, regulations, and amendments 
                thereto, as may be necessary to continue to regulate 
                the activities of United States persons in order to 
                prevent their participation in activities that could 
                contribute to the proliferation of weapons of mass 
                destruction and the means of their delivery, as 
                provided in the Export Administration Regulations, set 
                forth at 15 CFR Parts 768-799 (1994).

                Sec. 2. Any rules, regulations, orders, licenses, or 
                other forms of administrative action issued, taken, or 
                continued in effect heretofore or hereafter under the 
                authority of the Export Administration Act, or the 
                authorities provided under Executive Order No. 12868 on 
                September 30, 1993, are hereby continued in effect 
                unless altered, modified, or rescinded by the Secretary 
                of Commerce pursuant to section 1 of this order.

                Sec. 3. Executive Order No. 12868 is revoked and this 
                order shall take effect at 11:59 p.m. on September 29, 

                    (Presidential Sig.)>

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    September 29, 1994.
