SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    One of the goals of the Export Trading Company (ETC) Act of 1982 is 
to increase U.S. exports of goods and services by encouraging a more 
efficient provision of export trade services to U.S. producers. Section 
104 of the Act directs the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) to provide 
a service to facilitate contact between producers of exportable goods 
and services, and firms offering export trade services. The Export 
Trading Company Contact Facilitation Service (CFS) is a database 
designed to carry out the goal of Section 104 of the Act by putting 
U.S. producers of goods and services together with U.S. export service 
providers.
    The DOC's International Trade Administration (ITA) maintains the 
CFS database of U.S. producers and export service providers (export 
trading and export management firms, export sales agents, freight 
forwarders, and other export trade service providers) through a public-
private partnership. The producers and export service providers 
voluntarily register their export interests online at http://www.exportyellowpages.com for inclusion in the CFS. The Export Yellow 
Pages[reg], an ITA program, uses the CFS to help promote U.S. goods and 
services, and enable U.S. producers to locate export service providers.
    The commercial profiles of CFS registrants are accessible at http://www.exportyellowpages.com. CFS registrants are also listed in an 
annual print directory distributed worldwide. The CFS print and 
electronic directories are made available through ``The Export Yellow 
Pages''. Without the information collected by the form, the CFS 
database and the resulting directories would be unreliable and 
ineffective, because end-users of this data need current information 
about the listed companies.
