SUMMARY:

The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank), as a part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal Agencies to comment on the proposed information collection, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. By neutralizing the effect of export credit insurance and guarantees offered by foreign government and by absorbing credit risks that the provide section will not accept, Export Import Bank enables U.S. exporters to compete fairly in foreign markets. These collections of information are used by exporters to convey legal rights to their financial institution lenders to share insurance policy proceeds from Export Import Bank approved insurance claims.
