SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title III of the Export Trading Company Act

specified in the Certificate and carried out in compliance with its

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

(identified as such) should be included. Any comments not marked

privileged or confidential business information will be deemed to be

nonconfidential. An original and five (5) copies, plus two (2) 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,

Room 1104H, Washington, DC 20230. Information submitted by any person

is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (5

U.S.C. 552). However, nonconfidential versions of the comments will be

made available to the applicant if necessary for determining whether or

not to issue the Certificate. Comments should refer to this application

as ``Export Trade Certificate of Review, application number 99-2A005.''
