SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title III of the Export Trading Company Act
of 1982 (15 U.S.C. 4001-21) authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to

of Review protects the holder and the members identified in the
Certificate from state and federal government antitrust actions and
from private treble damage antitrust actions for the export conduct
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.
Request for Public Comments
Interested parties may submit written comments relevant to the
determination of 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 as 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: Export Trading Company
Affairs, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of
Commerce, Room 7021B, 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, American Sugar
Alliance, application number 06-A0003.''
The American Sugar Alliance's (``ASA'') original Certificate was
issued on March 16, 2007 (72 FR 14081, March 26, 2007). A summary of
the current application for an amendment follows.
Summary of the Application:
Applicant: American Sugar Alliance (``ASA''), 2111 Wilson

Contact: Robert C. Cassidy, Jr., Counsel to ASA, Telephone: (202)
Application No.: 06-A0003.

Proposed Amendment: ASA seeks to amend its Certificate to:
1. Add the following company as a new ``Member'' of the Certificate
within the meaning of section 325.2(l) of the Regulations (15 CFR
325.2(l)): Americane Sugar Refining LLC, Taylor, MI.
2. Revise the Export Trade Activities and Methods of Operation. The
proposed changes, shown as underscored text, are as follows:
The ASA will allocate all CPAs at one time. ASA may reallocate CPAs
if a new Producer becomes a Member. In the event that any CPAs are
returned to ASA for any reason, ASA will reallocate those CPAs among
interested Producers. The allocation, and any reallocations, will be
completed before December 16, 2007.
Information Collection and Exchange
ASA may ask Producers individually for their production capacity

CPAs to Producers based on this information.
