SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title III of the Export Trading Company Act

of 1982 (``The Act'') (Pub. L. 97-290, 15 U.S.C. 4011-21) Authorizes

the Secretary of Commerce to Issue Export Trade Certificates of Review.

The Regulations Implementing Title III (``the Regulations'') are found

at 15 CFR Part 325 (1999). Pursuant to this Authority, a Certificate of

Review was issued on April 8, 1999 to C-Shore International.

    A Certificate Holder is required by law to submit to the Secretary

of Commerce annual reports that update financial and other information

relating to business activities covered by its Certificate (Section 308

of the Act, 15 U.S.C. 4018, Section 325.14(a) of the Regulations, 15

CFR 325.14(a)). The annual report is due within 45 days after the

anniversary date of the issuance of the Certificate of Review (Sections

325.14(b) of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.14(b)). Failure to submit a

complete annual report may be the basis for revocation (Sections

325.10(a) and 325.14(c) of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.10(a)(3) and

325.14(c)). On March 29, 2008, the Secretary of Commerce sent to C-

Shore International a letter containing annual report questions,

 

[[Page 6016]]

 

stating that its annual report was due on May 23, 2008. Reminders were

sent on the following dates:

    August 22, 2008, October 3, 2008, and December 15, 2008. The

Secretary has received no written response from C-Shore International

to any of these letters. On December 15, 2008, and in accordance with

Section 325.10(c)(1) of the Regulations (15 CFR 325.10(c)(1)), the

Secretary of Commerce sent a letter by certified mail to notify C-Shore

International, that the Secretary was formally initiating the process

to revoke its Certificate for failure to file an annual report. The

Secretary has received no response from C-Shore International. Pursuant

to Section 325.10(c)(2) of the Regulations (15 CFR 325.10(c)(2)), the

Secretary considers the failure of C-Shore International, to respond to

be an admission of the statements contained in the notification letter.

The Secretary has determined to revoke the Certificate issued to C-

Shore International for its failure to file an annual report. The

Secretary has sent a letter, dated January 21, 2009, to notify C-Shore

International of this final determination.

    The revocation is effective thirty (30) days from the date of

publication of this notice (325.10(c)(4) of the Regulations, 15 CFR

325.10(c)). Any person aggrieved by this decision may appeal to an

appropriate U.S. District Court within 30 days from the date of

publication of this notice in the Federal Register ``(15 CFR 325.11 of

the Regulations).''

 

    January 21, 2009.

Director, Export Trading Company Affairs.
