By this Notice, the Department of the Treasury is informing the public that it has revised the mandatory data collections on the Treasury International Capital (TIC) C-forms. The revisions are effective for all reports beginning with reporting periods ending March 31, 2003 and thereafter; until that time, the current mandatory TIC C-forms and instructions remain in force. The revisions include revised instructions and two revised forms: CQ-1 and CQ-2. This Notice constitutes legal notification to all United States persons, as defined below, who meet the reporting requirements set forth in this Notice that they must respond to, and comply with, this data collection. United States persons who meet the reporting requirements but who do not receive a set of the revised C-forms and instructions should contact the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, acting as fiscal agent for the Department of the Treasury, to obtain copies. Additional copies of the reporting forms and instructions may be printed from the Internet at: http://www.treas.gov/tic/forms.html.
