SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract Title III of the Export Trading Company Act of 1982 (Pub. L. No. 97– 290, 96 Stat. 1233–1247), requires the Department of Commerce to establish a program to evaluate applications for Export Trade Certificates of Review, and with the concurrence of the Department of Justice, issue such certificates where the requirements of the Act are satisfied. The Act requires that Commerce, with Justice concurrence, issue regulations governing the evaluation and issuance of certificates before Commerce can accept applications for certification. The collection of information is necessary for the antitrust analysis which is a prerequisite to issuance of a certificate. Without the information there would be no basis upon which a certificate could be issued. In the Department of Commerce, this economic and legal analysis will be performed by the Office of Export Trading Company Affairs and the Office of the General Counsel. The Department of Justice analysis will be conducted by the Antitrust Division. The purpose of such analysis is to make PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 a determination as to whether or not to approve an application and issue an Export Trade Certificate of Review. If this information is not collected, the antitrust analysis cannot be performed and without that analysis no certificate can be issued. A certificate provides its holder and members named in the certificate (a) immunity from government actions under state and Federal antitrust laws for the export conduct specified in the certificate; (b) some protection from frivolous private suits by limiting their liability in private actions to actual damages when the challenged activities are covered by an Export Certificate of Review. Title III was enacted to reduce uncertainty regarding application of U.S. antitrust laws to export activities—especially those involving actions by domestic competitors. II. Method of Collection Form ITA–4093P is sent by request to U.S. firms. III. Data OMB Number: 0625–0125. Form Number: ITA–4093P. Type of Review: Revision-Regular Submission. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit; Not-for-profit institutions and State, local or Tribal Government. Estimated Number of Respondents: 30. Estimated Time Per Response: 32 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 960. Estimated Total Annual Costs: The estimated annual cost for this collection is $344,400 ($260,000 government and $134,400 respondents). IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and costs) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
