This form represents the exporter's directive to Ex-Im Bank to whom and where the insurance proceeds should be sent. The forms are typically part of the documentation required by financial institution lenders in order to provide financing of an exporter's foreign accounts receivable. Foreign accounts receivable insured by Ex-Im Bank represent stronger collateral to secure the financing. By recording which policyholders have completed this form, Ex-Im Bank is able to determine how many of its exporter policyholders require Ex-Im Bank insurance policies to support lender financing.

The Export Import Bank of the U.S. (Ex-Im Bank) pursuant to the Export Import Bank Act of 1945, as amended (12 U.S.C. 635, et seq.), facilitates the finance of export of U.S. goods and services. By neutralizing the effect of export credit insurance and guarantees offered by foreign governments and by absorbing credit risks that the private sector will not accept, Ex-Im Bank enables U.S. exporters to compete fairly in foreign markets on the basis of price and product. This collection of information is used by exporters to convey legal rights to, and describe the duties and obligations that have to be met by their financial institution lender in order to share insurance policy proceeds from Ex-Im Bank approved insurance claims. The changes that were made to this agreement include language clarifications and changes to the descriptions of the rights and obligations of the parties to the agreement. The changes were made to provide clarity and specificity for exporters/lenders based on issues that have arisen through either exporter/lender inquiries or interpretations made during processing of claims. The language of the existing agreement frequently results in improper documentation by our lender partners which increases claim processing times and causes significant resource burdens to Ex-Im Bank. The language in the existing agreement also creates the potential for fraud, resulting in losses to Ex-Im Bank. Recent changes to the Ex-Im Bank Charter (12 U.S.C. 635(i)(2)(i) and a-6(b)) mandate that Ex-Im Bank must develop practices to identify, prevent and monitor for potential fraud. Therefore changes to the agreement were required to comply with this mandate and protect the U.S. taxpayer from fraud related loss. In addition, the changes to this agreement protect Ex-Im Bank's lender partners who are parties to the agreement, allowing us to maintain our relationships with our lender partners, and fulfill our agency mission to finance exports (through our lender partners) and create jobs. Due to the Ex-Im Bank Charter mandate to reduce fraud, the changes in the form need to be immediately disseminated to exporters/lenders so that they can change practices where needed, especially where documentation of export transactions is involved.

The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank), as a 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. Ex-Im Bank's borrowers, financial institution policy holders and guaranteed lenders provide this form to U.S. exporters, who certify to the eligibility of their exports for Ex-Im Bank support. For direct loans and loan guarantees, the completed form is required to be submitted at time of disbursement and held by either the guaranteed lender or Ex-Im Bank. For MT insurance, the completed forms are held by the financial institution, only to be submitted to Ex-Im Bank in the event of a claim filing. Ex-Im Bank believes that EIB 11-05 requires emergency approval in order to continue operation of its long- and medium-term financing programs. It is an integral component of the programs and is heavily used. Lack of an emergency approval of this form would preclude our ability to continue operation of its long- and medium-term financial institution programs. Ex-Im Bank developed the referenced form to obtain exporter certifications regarding the export transaction, content sourcing, and their eligibility to participate in USG programs. These details are necessary to determine the value and legitimacy of Ex-Im Bank financing support and claims submitted. It also provides the financial institutions a check on the export transaction's eligibility at the time it is fulfilling a financing request. Accordingly, Ex-Im Bank requests emergency approval of EIB 11-05 in order to continue operation of these important export programs. The form can be viewed at: www.exim.gov/pub/pending/eib11-05.pdf.

The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank), as a 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. The Application for Express Insurance will be used to determine the eligibility of the applicant and the creditworthiness of one of the applicant's foreign buyers for Export-Import Bank assistance under its insurance program. Export-Import Bank customers will be able to submit this form on paper. This is a new application form for use by small U.S. businesses with limited export experience. Companies that are eligible to use the Express policy will need to answer approximately 20 questions and sign an acknowledgement of the certifications that appear on the reverse of the application form. This program does not provide discretionary credit authority to the U.S. exporter, and therefore the financial and credit information needs are minimized. This new form incorporates the recently updated standard Certification and Notices section as well as two questions about the amount of U.S. employment to be supported by this policy. Based upon comments received we have changed the name of this form from Application for Short-Term Express Export Credit Insurance Policy to Application for Express Insurance. The form can be viewed at http://www.exim.gov/pub/pending/EIB10_ 02.pdf.
