Trading Company Affairs, International Trade Administration, 202/482-

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 3, 1993 to Refined Sugar Trading Institute.

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(a) and (b) of the Regulations). Failure to submit a complete

Annual Report may be the Basis for Modification or Revocation (Sections

325.10(a)(3) and 325.14(c) of the Regulations). On the following dates

April 23, 2005, April 23, 2006 and April 23, 2007, the Secretary of

Commerce sent to Refined Sugar Trading Institute a letter containing

Annual Report questions stating that its annual report was due on June

17, 2005, June 17, 2006 and June 17, 2007, respectively. The Secretary

has received no written response from Refined Sugar Trading Institute

or Domino Sugar Corporation relating to Domino Sugar Corporation's

annual report. On July 12, 2007, and in accordance with Section

325.14(a) and (b) of the Regulations, the Secretary of Commerce sent a

letter by Certified Mail to notify Refined Sugar Trading Institute that

the Secretary was formally initiating the process to modify its

Certificate to remove Domino Sugar Corporation for its failure to file

annual reports directly or through the Refined Sugar Trading Institute.

The Secretary has received no response from Refined Sugar Trading

Institute. Pursuant to Section 325.10(a)(3) of the Regulations (15 CFR

325.10(a)(3)), the Secretary considers the response of Refined Sugar

Trading Institute to be an admission of the statements contained in the

notification letter. The Secretary has determined to modify the

Certificate issued to Refined Sugar Trading Institute for the failure

to file a complete Annual Report. The Secretary has sent a letter,

dated August 20, 2007 to notify the Refined Sugar Trading Institute of

its final determination.

The Modification is effective thirty (30) days from the date of

publication of this notice (325.10(a)(3) of the


[[Page 49257]]


Regulations, 15 CFR 325.14(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 the Regulations).''


Dated: August 20, 2007.

Jeffrey Anspacher,

Director Export Trading Company Affairs.
