Yes, paragraph (b)(5) ‘releases’ a general purpose commodity or software where the “part,” “component,” “accessory,” “attachment” or “software,” was “developed” with no “knowledge” that it was for a particular item or type of item.

Previous If I determine my commodity is not classified under an ECCN, such as an ECCN in a “xY0zz” ECCN that does not control “parts,” does that mean that all the “technology” related to my “part” is not controlled either?
Next If I do not have “knowledge” of the “development” history, does that mean I cannot rely on paragraphs (b)(4), (b)(5) and (b)(6)?
