SUMMARY: The Export-Import Banks of the United States (Ex-Im Bank), as 
part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent 
burden, invites the general public and other Federal Agencies to 
comment on the proposed information collection, as required by the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.
    This collection of information is necessary, pursuant to 12 U.S.C. 
Sec. 635(a)(1), to determine eligibility of the underlying export 
transaction for Ex-Im Bank insurance coverage.
    The Export-Import Bank has made a change to the report to have the 
insured financial institution provide specific information (industry 
code, number of employees and annual sales volume) needed to make a 
determination as to whether or not the exporter meets the SBA's 
definition of a small business. The insured financial institution 
already provides a short description of the goods and/or services being 
exported and the name and address of the exporter. These additional 
pieces of information will allow Ex-Im Bank to better track the extent 
to which its support assists U.S. small businesses.
    The other change that Ex-Im Bank has made is to require the insured 
financial institution to indicate whether the exporter is a minority-
owned business, women-owned business and/or veteran-owned business. 
Although answers to the questions are mandatory, the company may choose 
any one of the three answers: Yes/No/Decline to Answer. The option of 
``Decline to Answer'' allows a company to consciously decline to answer 
the specific question should they not wish to answer.
    The information collection tool can be reviewed at: http://www.exim.gov/pub/pending/EIB92-41.pdf.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before January 8, 2016 to be
