The Department of Commerce (DOC) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
Agency: Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).
Title: License Exception, Humanitarian Donations.
Agency Form Number: None.
OMB Approval Number: 0694-0033.
Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of information.
Burden: 10 hours.
Average Time Per Response: 5 hours per response.
Number of Respondents: 2 respondents.
Needs and Uses: Section 7(g) of the EAA, as amended by the Export Administration Amendments Act of 1985 (Public Law 99-64), exempts from foreign policy controls exports of donations to meet basic human needs. Since the re-write of the Export Administration Regulations, an exporter is permitted to ship humanitarian goods identified in Supplement 2 to Part 740, to embargoed destinations using the new License Exception procedures. This regulation reduces the regulatory burden on these exporters by enabling them to make humanitarian donations with only minimal recordkeeping.
Affected Public: Individuals, businesses or other for-profit institutions.
Respondent's Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit.
OMB Desk Officer: David Rostker.
