Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee Seeks New Members
The International Trade Administration has renewed its Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee through Aug. 13, 2016, and is seeking nominations for 40 members for this term. All applications for appointment are due no later than Sept. 25.
CINTAC provides advice on the development and administration of programs to expand U.S. exports of civil nuclear goods and services. This advice is used by the ITA in its role as a member of the Civil Nuclear Trade Working Group of the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee and its participation in the Atoms for Prosperity interagency group to promote U.S. civil nuclear trade.
CINTAC members represent U.S. entities involved in the export of civil nuclear products and services and are required to reflect the diversity of this sector, including in terms of their size and geographic location. At least one individual representing each of the following will be appointed: civil nuclear manufacturing and services companies, small businesses, utilities, trade associations in the civil nuclear sector, research institutions and universities, and private sector organizations involved in strengthening the export competitiveness of U.S. civil nuclear products and services. Each member must be a U.S. citizen and must not be registered as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. In addition, no member may represent a U.S. entity that is majority owned or controlled by a foreign government entity (or entities).
