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

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

oetca@ita.doc.gov. 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, application number 84-20A12.''
