SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title III of the Export Trading Company Act

Certificate and carried out in compliance with its terms and

conditions. Section 302(b)(1) of the Act 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 version, should be submitted no later than 20 days

Company Affairs, International Trade Administration, Department of

Commerce, Room 1104H, Washington, D.C. 20230, or transmitted by E-mail

from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552).
