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 December 29, 1992 to Balmac International Inc.

A Certificate Holder is required by law to submit to the Secretary 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, Section 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 (Sections 325.14(b) of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.14(b)). Failure to submit a complete Annual Report may be the Basis for Revocation (Sections 325.10(a) and 325.14(c) of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.10(a)(3) and 325.14(c)). On April 8, 2004, the Secretary of Commerce sent to Balmac International Inc. a letter containing Annual Report questions stating that its annual report was due on May 31, 2004. A reminder was sent on November 8, 2005 with a due date of December 23, 2005. The Secretary has received no written response from Start Printed Page 42807Balmac International Inc. to any of these letters. On March 24, 2006, and in accordance with Section 325.10(c)(1) of the Regulations, (15 CFR 325.10(c)(1)), the Secretary of Commerce sent a letter by Certified Mail to notify Balmac International Inc. that the Secretary was formally initiating the process to revoke its Certificate for failure to file an annual report. The Secretary received notification that the letter was received by Balmac International Inc. on April 3, 2006. Pursuant to Section 325.10(c)(2) of the Regulations (15 CFR 325.10(c)(2)), the Secretary considers the failure of Balmac International Inc., to respond to be an admission of the statements contained in the notification letter. The Secretary has determined to revoke the Certificate issued to Balmac International Inc. for its failure to file an annual report. The Secretary has sent a letter, dated July 21, 2006, to notify the Balmac International Inc. of its final determination.

The Revocation is effective thirty (30) days from the date of publication of this notice (325.10(©))(4) of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.10(©))). Any person aggrieved by this decision may appeal to an appropriate U.S. District Court within 30 days from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register “(325.11 of the Regulations, 15 CFR 325.11).”
