Export Assistance Program Forms Under Review
The Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service is seeking comments no later than Feb. 21, 2012, on the proposed renewal and revision of a currently approved information collection process used in support of exporter assistance programs.
• FAS is revising the Foreign Buyers’ List order form, which is used by U.S. companies to request information on foreign buyers of food and agricultural products by country, to reflect the new organizational structure in USDA/FAS and simplify the format of the request.
• FAS is also revising the customer service survey form used to collect information from participants of USDA/FAS endorsed trade shows. FAS will revise this form to effectively capture information in a more concise manner and update contact information for the offices responsible for managing the trade show program.
• The remaining three forms to be renewed (the U.S. Supplier Registration form, the Madigan Export Award form, and the Exporter Directory Registration form) will be revised only to reflect the new organizational structure of USDA/FAS and update the contact information of the offices responsible for managing these programs.
• Four forms in this submission are no longer used and will not be renewed: the Foreign Buyer Registration form, the Exporter Directory Evaluation form, the Registration/Application Form for the American Café, and the Sample Registration Form for Trade Events/American Café.
