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 April 8, 1999 to C-Shore International.
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 March 29, 2008, the Secretary of Commerce sent to C-
Shore International a letter containing annual report questions,
stating that its annual report was due on May 23, 2008. Reminders were
sent on the following dates:
August 22, 2008, October 3, 2008, and December 15, 2008. The
Secretary has received no written response from C-Shore International
to any of these letters. On December 15, 2008, 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 C-Shore
International, 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 C-Shore International. Pursuant
to Section 325.10(c)(2) of the Regulations (15 CFR 325.10(c)(2)), the
Secretary considers the failure of C-Shore International, to respond to
be an admission of the statements contained in the notification letter.
The Secretary has determined to revoke the Certificate issued to C-
Shore International for its failure to file an annual report. The
Secretary has sent a letter, dated January 21, 2009, to notify C-Shore
International of this 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 ``(15 CFR 325.11 of
January 21, 2009.
