SUMMARY: Export Trading Company Affairs, International Trade

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title III of the Export Trading Company Act

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.

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
