Title III of the Export Trading Company Act of 1982 (15 U.S.C. Sections 4001-21) authorizes the Secretary of Commerce to issue Export Trade Certificates of Review. The regulations implementing Title III are found at 15 CFR Part 325 (2005).

Export Trading Company Affairs (“ETCA”) is issuing this notice pursuant to 15 CFR 325.6(b), which requires the U.S. Department of Commerce to publish a summary of the certification in the Federal Register. Under Section 305(a) of the Act and 15 CFR 325.11(a), any person aggrieved by the Secretary's determination may, within 30 days of the date of this notice, bring an action in any appropriate district court of the United States to set aside the determination on the ground that the determination is erroneous.

Description of Amended Certificate

The original FSEA Certificate (Application No.88-00015) was issued on December 12, 1988 (53 FR 51294, December 21, 1988) and previously amended on February 28, 1989 (54 FR 9542, March 7, 1989); and February 5, 1999 (64 FR 6632, February 10, 1999).

2. Change the current Member listing of the trade name “Simsmetal America” to the legal name of “Sims Group USA Corporation”, and change the current Member listing of “Southern Scrap Material Co., Ltd.” to “Southern Recycling, LLC,” due to a company name change.

3. Delete the following companies as “Members” of the Certificate: Metro Metal Recycling Corp., New York, NY, and Proler International Corp., Portland, OR.

4. Update “Export Trade Activities and Methods of Operation”, paragraph 2. a., to reflect the current FSEA Member voting rights, which are as follows:

“2. FSEA and its Members may prescribe the following conditions with respect to voting rights, membership in, and withdrawal and expulsion from, FSEA:
