SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title III of the Export Trading Company Act

terms and conditions. Section 302(b)(1) of the Export Trading Company
Act of 1982 and 15 CFR 325.6(a) require the Secretary to publish a
notice in the Federal Register identifying the applicant and
summarizing its proposed export conduct.

determination whether an amended Certificate should be issued. If the
comments include any privileged or confidential business information,
it must be clearly marked and a nonconfidential version of the comments

privileged or confidential business information will be deemed to be
nonconfidential. An original and five copies, plus two copies of the
nonconfidential version, should be submitted no later than 20 days
after the date of this notice to: Office of Export Trading Company
Affairs, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce,

exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C.
