Secretary of Commerce to issue, with the concurrence of the Attorney 
General, an Export Trade Certificate of Review to any person that 
establishes that its proposed export trade, export trade activities, 
and methods of operation meet the four standards found in Section 
303(a) of the Act, 15 U.S.C. 4001 et seq. An Export Trade Certificate 
of Review provides the certificate holder and its members with limited 
antitrust preclearance for specified export-related activities. 
Application for an Export Trade Certificate of Review is voluntary. The 
information to be collected is found at 15 CFR part 325--Export Trade 
Certificates of Review. The collection of information is necessary for 
both the Departments of Commerce and Justice to conduct an antitrust 
analysis, in order to determine whether the applicant's proposed 
export-related conduct meets the standards in Section 303(a) of the 
Act. The collection of information constitutes the essential basis of 
the statutory determinations to be made by the Secretary of Commerce 
and the Attorney General.
    The Department of Commerce conducts its economic and legal analysis 
of the information supplied by applicants through the Office of 
Competition and Economic Analysis and the Office of the General 
Counsel. In the Department of Justice, analysis is conducted by the 
Antitrust Division.
    Title III was enacted to reduce uncertainty regarding the 
application of U.S. antitrust laws to export activities--especially 
joint export activities involving domestic competitors. Among other 
benefits, the Export Trade Certificate of Review provides its holder 
and members named in the Certificate with (a) protection from 
government actions under state and federal antitrust laws for the 
export conduct specified in the Certificate, and (b) some protection 
from frivolous private suits, by limiting liability in private actions 
to actual damages when the challenged activities are covered by an 
Export Trade Certificate of Review.
