    Abstract of proposed collections: The export, temporary import, and

data are licensed by the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) 
in accordance with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations 
(``ITAR,'' 22 CFR 120-130) and Section 38 of the Arms Export Control 
Act. Those who manufacture or export or temporarily import defense 
articles, defense services, and related technical data, or the 
brokering thereof, must register with the Department of State. Persons 
desiring to engage in export, temporary import, and brokering 
activities must submit an application or written request to conduct the 
transaction to the Department to obtain a decision whether it is in the 
interests of U.S. foreign policy and national security to approve the 
transaction. Also, registered brokers must submit annual reports 
regarding all brokering activity that was transacted, and registered 
manufacturers and exporter must maintain records of defense trade 
activities for five years.
     1405-0002, Statement of Registration: The Directorate of 
Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) is responsible for the collection of 
registration fees from persons in the business of manufacturing, 
exporting, and/or brokering defense articles or defense services.

Part 129 of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, U.S. and

a report to DDTC enumerating and describing brokering activities by 
quantity, type, U.S. dollar value, purchaser/recipient, and license 
number for approved activities and any exemptions utilized for other 
covered activities.
     1405-0142, Brokering Prior Approval (License): In 
accordance with Part 129 of the ITAR, U.S. and foreign persons who wish 
to engage in ITAR-controlled brokering activity of defense articles and 
defense services must first register with DDTC. Brokers must then 
submit a written request for approval to DDTC and receive DDTC's 
consent prior to engaging in such activities unless exempted.
     1405-0163, Commodity Jurisdiction Determination: The 
information submitted pursuant to this collection will be used to 
evaluate whether a particular defense article or defense service is 
covered by the U.S. Munitions List, and therefore is subject to export 
licensing jurisdiction of the Department of State. This collection may 
also be used to request a change in U.S. Munitions List category 
designation, request the removal a defense article from the U.S. 
Munitions List, or request the reconsideration of a previous commodity 
jurisdiction determination.
     1405-0173, Request to Change End User, End Use and/or 
Destination of Hardware: This information collection is used to request 
DDTC approval prior to any sale, transfer, transshipment, or disposal, 
whether permanent or temporary, of classified or unclassified defense 
articles to any end user, end use, or destination other than as stated 
on a license or other approval.
     1405-0174, Request for an Advisory Opinion: A Request for 
Advisory Opinion is submitted when an exporter wants an opinion from 
the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls on whether it would likely 
grant a license or other approval for an export transaction involving 
defense articles and defense services.
     1405-0179, Voluntary Disclosure: Section 127.12 of the 
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) encourages the 
voluntary disclosure of information to the Directorate of Defense Trade 
Controls by persons who
