Abstract The International Trade Administration’s (ITA) Global Markets/ U.S. Commercial Service (CS) is E:\FR\FM\06JYN1.SGM 06JYN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 126 / Tuesday, July 6, 2021 / Notices mandated by Congress to broaden and deepen the U.S. exporter base. The CS accomplishes this by providing counseling, programs and services to help U.S. organizations export and conduct business in overseas markets. This information collection package enables the CS to provide appropriate export services to U.S. exporters and international buyers. CS offers a variety of services to enable clients to begin exporting/importing or to expand existing exporting/importing efforts. Clients may learn about our services from business related entities such as the National Association of Manufacturers, Federal Express, State Economic Development offices, the internet or word of mouth. The CS provides a standard set of services to assist clients with identifying potential overseas partners, establishing meeting programs with appropriate overseas business contacts and providing due diligence reports on potential overseas business partners. The CS also provides other export-related services considered to be of a ‘‘customized nature’’ because they do not fit into the standard set of CS export services, but are driven by unique business needs of individual clients. The dissemination of international market information and potential business opportunities for U.S. exporters are critical components of the Commercial Service’s export assistance programs and services. U.S. companies conveniently access and indicate their interest in these services by completing the appropriate forms via ITA and CS U.S. Export Assistance Center websites. The CS works closely with clients to educate them about the exporting/ importing process and to help prepare them for exporting/importing. When a client is ready to begin the exporting/ importing process our field staff provide counseling to assist in the development of an exporting strategy. We provide feebased, export-related services designed to help client export/import. The type of export-related service that is proposed to a client depends upon a client’s business goals and where they are in the export/import process. Some clients are at the beginning of the export process and require assistance with identifying potential distributors, whereas other clients may be ready to sign a contract with a potential distributor and require due diligence assistance. Before the CS can provide export-related services to clients, such as assistance with identifying potential partners or providing due diligence, specific information is required to determine the client’s business objectives and needs. For example, before we can provide a VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Jul 02, 2021 Jkt 253001 service to identify potential business partners we need to know whether the client would like a potential partner to have specific technical qualifications, coverage in a specific market, English or foreign language ability or warehousing requirements. This information collection is designed to elicit such data so that appropriate services can be proposed and conducted to most effectively meet the client’s exporting goals. Without these forms the CS is unable to provide services when requested by clients. The forms ask U.S. exporters standard questions about their company details, export experience, information about the products or services they wish to export and exporting goals. A few questions are tailored to a specific program type and will vary slightly with each program. CS staff use this information to gain an understanding of client’s needs and objectives so that they can provide appropriate and effective export assistance tailored to an exporter’s requirements. II. Method of Collection CS is seeking approval for the following data collection methods to provide flexibility for how clients will provide information about their company details, export experience, information about the products or services they wish to export and exporting goals. Clients will be asked to provide their information on our website (export.gov), web-based survey or form links, or paper-based forms. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0625–0143.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The International Trade Administration's (ITA) Global Markets/U.S. 
Commercial Service (CS) is

mandated by Congress to broaden and deepen the U.S. exporter base. The 
CS accomplishes this by providing counseling, programs and services to 
help U.S. organizations export and conduct business in overseas 
markets. This information collection package enables the CS to provide 
appropriate export services to U.S. exporters and international buyers. 
CS offers a variety of services to enable clients to begin exporting/
importing or to expand existing exporting/importing efforts. Clients 
may learn about our services from business related entities such as the 
National Association of Manufacturers, Federal Express, State Economic 
Development offices, the internet or word of mouth. The CS provides a 
standard set of services to assist clients with identifying potential 
overseas partners, establishing meeting programs with appropriate 
overseas business contacts and providing due diligence reports on 
potential overseas business partners. The CS also provides other 
export-related services considered to be of a ``customized nature'' 
because they do not fit into the standard set of CS export services, 
but are driven by unique business needs of individual clients.
    The dissemination of international market information and potential 
business opportunities for U.S. exporters are critical components of 
the Commercial Service's export assistance programs and services. U.S. 
companies conveniently access and indicate their interest in these 
services by completing the appropriate forms via ITA and CS U.S. Export 
Assistance Center websites.
    The CS works closely with clients to educate them about the 
exporting/importing process and to help prepare them for exporting/
importing. When a client is ready to begin the exporting/importing 
process our field staff provide counseling to assist in the development 
of an exporting strategy. We provide fee-based, export-related services 
designed to help client export/import. The type of export-related 
service that is proposed to a client depends upon a client's business

and objectives so that they can provide appropriate and effective 
export assistance tailored to an exporter's requirements.

    CS is seeking approval for the following data collection methods to 
provide flexibility for how clients will provide information about
