ACTION: Notice of application to amend an Export Trade Certificate of

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,
