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 May 15, 1990 to Dimick International & Associates.
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 May 6, 2006, the Secretary of Commerce sent to Dimick
International & Associates a letter containing Annual Report questions
stating that its annual report was due on June 29, 2006. A reminder was
sent on May 31, 2007, with a due date of June 29, 2007. The Secretary
has received no written response from Dimick International & Associates
to any of these letters. On July 6, 2007, 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 Dimick
International & Associates 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 Dimick
International & Associates. Pursuant to Section 325.10(c)(2) of the
Regulations (15 CFR 325.10(c)(2)), the Secretary considers the failure
of Dimick International & Associates to respond to be an admission of
the statements contained in the notification letter. The Secretary has
determined to revoke the Certificate issued to Dimick International &
Associates for its failure to file an annual report. The Secretary has
sent a letter, dated July 20, 2007 to notify the Dimick International &
Associates of its 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 ``(325.11 of the
Regulations, 15 CFR 325.11).''
