Need and Use: The information requested enables the applicant to provide Ex-Im Bank with the information necessary to obtain legislatively required assurance of repayment and fulfills other statutory requirements.

This form has been reorganized to present the information in a more logical manner. Additionally, questions related to the goods and/or services being exported have been removed as Ex-Im Bank already has that information. Two general questions, questions about the export sale, and questions about the applicant's experience with the proposed buyer Start Printed Page 134have been added to the application form. In order to reduce the burden impact on the applicant, many of the questions have been presented as Yes/No or check box questions. Including these questions in the application form will remove the need for Ex-Im Bank to contact the applicant for additional information after the application has been submitted.
