This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Renewal of an existing collection.
The Department of Commerce, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument(s) and instructions should be directed to Dawnielle Battle, BXA ICB Liaison, (202) 482-0637, Department of Commerce, Room 6883, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20230.End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
On September 30, 1993, the Secretary of Commerce submitted to the Congress a report of the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee, entitled Toward a National Export Strategy. The report included the goal to “Undertake a comprehensive review of the Export Administration Regulations to simplify, clarify, and make the regulations more user-friendly”. To carry out this recommendation, BXA has rewritten the entire EAR. To the extent activities have been added or changed but not deleted, this collection represents the authority to collect, on rare occasions, certain information from the public. This assembly of information collection activities is comprised of two activities. “Registration Of U.S. Agricultural Commodities For Exemption From Short Supply Limitations On Export”, and “Petitions For The Imposition Of Monitoring Or Controls On Recyclable Metallic materials; Public Hearings” are statutory in nature and-though they never have been applied-must remain a part of BXA's information collection budget authorization. The third—The Commerce Control List—became necessary as the rewrite of the Export Administration Regulations sought to harmonize the U.S. ECCN system with the European system for consistency and future simplicity. However, this activity is no longer needed since the transformation from the old system to the new system is complete.
For the purpose of clarity, this abstract will refer to the two activities as follows: USAG will refer to Registration Of U.S. Agricultural Commodities For Exemption From Short Supply Limitations On Export activities; and, PETITIONS will refer to Petitions For The Imposition Of Monitoring Or Controls On Recyclable Metallic materials; Public Hearings activities.
II. Method of Collection
For USAG, the method is a written application for the exemption from Short Supply Limitations on Export Activities.
For PETITIONS, the method is a written petition requesting the monitoring of exports or the imposition of export controls, or both, with respect to certain materials.
The same mailing address is used for both submissions: P.O. Box 273, Washington, DC 20230.
OMB Number: 0694-0102.
Form Number: None.
Type of Review: Regular submission for extension of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Individuals, businesses or other for-profit and not-for-profit institutions.
