Document Number: 06-1932
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-03-02

Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review.

Direct Investment Surveys: BE-577, Direct Transactions of U.S. Reporter With Foreign Affiliate
Document Number: 06-1877
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-03-01
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis, Economic Analysis Bureau
This proposed rule amends regulations of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Department of Commerce (BEA) to set forth the reporting requirements for the quarterly BE-577, Direct Transactions of U.S. Reporter With Foreign Affiliate. The BE-577 survey is conducted quarterly and is a sample survey that obtains data on transactions and positions between U.S.-owned foreign business enterprises and their U.S. parents. To address the current needs of data users while at the same time keeping the respondent burden as low as possible, BEA proposes modification of items on the survey form and in the reporting criteria. Changes are proposed to bring the BE-577 forms and related instructions into conformity with the 2004 BE-10, Benchmark Survey of U.S. Direct Investment Abroad, and to exclude data that have recently begun to be collected on other Government surveys.
