SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Title and Form Number: EIB 10-02 Application for Short-Term Express Credit Insurance Policy.

OMB Number: 3048-0031.

Type of Review: Regular.

Need and Use: This form is used by an exporter (or broker acting on its behalf) in order to obtain approval for coverage of the repayment risk of export sales. The information received allows Ex-Im Bank staff to make a determination of the eligibility of the applicant and the creditworthiness of one of the applicant's foreign buyers for Ex-Im Bank assistance under its programs.

This is the application form for use by small U.S. businesses with limited export experience. Companies that are eligible to use the Express policy will need to answer approximately 20 questions and sign an acknowledgement of the certifications that appear on the reverse of the application form. This program does not provide discretionary credit authority to the U.S. exporter, and therefore the financial and credit information needs are minimized. This new form incorporates the standard Certification and Notices section as well as two questions about the amount of U.S. employment to be supported by this policy. It also requests additional information about sales by affiliates, U.S. content, and foreign buyers. By requesting this information in the application form, Ex-Im Bank will no longer need to separately request additional information from the applicant in order to process the application.

Affected Public: This form affects entities involved in the export of U.S. goods and services.

Annual Number of Respondents: 500.

Estimated Time per Respondent: 0.25 hours.

Annual Burden Hours: 125 hours.

Frequency of Reporting of Use: Once per year.

Government Expenses:

Reviewing time per year: 1,000 hours.

Average Wages per Hour: $42.50.

Average Cost per Year: $42,250 (time*wages).

Benefits and Overhead: 20%.

Total Government Cost: $ 51,000.
