Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    The Department of Commerce (DOC) has submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for 
collection of information under provisions of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).
    Agency: Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS).
    Title: License Exception, Humanitarian Donations.
    Agency Form Number: None.
    OMB Approval Number: 0694-0033.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of 
    Burden: 10 hours.
    Average Time Per Response: 5 hours per response.
    Number of Respondents: 2 respondents.
    Needs and Uses: Section 7(g) of the EAA, as amended by the Export 
Administration Amendments Act of 1985 (Public Law 99-64), exempts from 
foreign policy controls exports of donations to meet basic human needs. 
Since the re-write of the Export Administration Regulations, an 
exporter is permitted to ship humanitarian goods identified in 
Supplement 2 to Part 740, to embargoed destinations using the new 
License Exception procedures. This regulation reduces the regulatory 
burden on these exporters by enabling them to make humanitarian 
donations with only minimal recordkeeping.
    Affected Public: Individuals, businesses or other for-profit 
    Respondent's Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit.
    OMB Desk Officer: David Rostker.

    Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information 
collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice

Building, Washington, DC 20230.
