I. Abstract

    This collection is needed to provide a procedure for persons or 
organizations listed on the Entity List to request removal or 
modification of the entry that affects them. The Entity List appears at 
15 CFR part 744, Supp. No. 1. The Entity List is used to inform the 
public of certain parties whose presence in a transaction that is 
subject to the Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR parts 730-799) 
requires a license from the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS). Such 
requests would be reviewed by the Departments of Commerce, State, and 
Defense, and Energy and Treasury as appropriate. The interagency 
decision, as communicated to the requesting entity by BIS, would be the 
final agency action on such a request. This is a voluntary collection.
