SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Title III of the Export Trading Company Act of 1982 (“the Act”) (Pub. L. 97-290, 15 U.S.C. 4011-21) authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to issue export trade certificates of review. The regulations implementing Title III (“the Regulations”) are found at 15 CFR part 325 (1999). Pursuant to this authority, a certificate of review was issued on January 11, 2000 to T.P. International Expo Services, Inc.

A certificate holder is required by law to submit to the Department of Commerce annual reports that update financial and other information relating to business activities covered by its certificate (section 308 of the Act, 15 U.S.C. 4018, § 325.14(a) of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.14(a)). The annual report is due within 45 days after the anniversary date of the issuance of the Certificate of Review (§325.14(b) of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.14(b)). Failure to submit a complete annual report may be the basis for revocation (§§ 325.10(a) and 325.14(c) of the regulations, 15 CFR 325.10(a)(3) and 325.14(c)).

On January 7, 2002, the Department of Commerce sent to T.P. International Expo Services, Inc. a letter containing annual report questions with a reminder that its annual report was due on February 25, 2002. Additional reminders were sent on April 11, 2002 and on May 21, 2002. The Department has received no written response from T.P. International Expo Services, Inc. to any of these letters.

On July 10, 2002, and in accordance with § 325.10(c)(2) of the Regulations, (15 CFR 325.10 (c)(2)), the Department of Commerce sent a letter by certified mail to notify T.P. International Expo Services, Inc. that the Department was formally initiating the process to revoke its certificate for failure to file an annual report. In addition, a summary of this letter allowing T.P. International Expo Services, Inc. thirty days to respond was published in the Federal Register on July 16, 2002 at 67 FR 46634. Pursuant to § 325.10(c)(2) of the regulations (15 CFR 325.10(c)(2)), the Department considers the failure of T.P. International Expo Services, Inc. to respond to be an admission of the statements contained in the notification letter.

The Department has determined to revoke the certificate issued to T.P. International Expo Services, Inc. for its failure to file an annual report. The Department has sent a letter, dated August 19, 2002, to notify T.P. International Expo Services, Inc. of its determination. The revocation is effective thirty (30) days from the date of publication of this notice. Any person aggrieved by this decision may appeal to an appropriate U.S. district court within 30 days from the date on which this notice is published in the Federal Register §§ 325.10(c)(4) and 325.11 of the Regulations, 15 CFR 324.10(c)(4) and 325.11 of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.10(c)(4) and 325.11.
