Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Bureau of Industry and Security is accepting comments through Oct. 7 on the proposed extension of information collections associated with voluntary disclosures of antiboycott violations and violations of the Export Administration Regulations. With respect to the latter, the BIS evaluates the seriousness of the violation disclosed and (1) informs the person making the disclosure that no action is warranted, (2) issues a warning letter, (3) issues a proposed charging letter and attempts to settle the matter, (4) issues a charging letter if settlement is not reached, and/or (5) refers the matter to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution.

Comments are invited on whether these collections are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the BIS including whether the information has practical utility; the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collections and ways to minimize that burden; and ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collected.
