ACTION: Notice of Application to Amend an Export Trade Certificate of

SUMMARY: Export Trading Company Affairs (``ETCA'') of the International

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title III of the Export Trading Company Act

of 1982 (15 U.S.C. 4001-21) authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to

issue Export Trade Certificates of Review. An Export Trade Certificate

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.
