Terms of Clearance:
In accordance with 5 CFR 1320, OMB approves this information collectio until May 1, 1989. In order for the form ITA-6031P to be approved at the time of resubmission, BXA must make several changes in the current form. First, BXA must develop a short form (one page) that exporters of low-technology computers would be able to use. BXA should consider making the short-form a detachable part of Form ITA-6031P, and should rewrite the instructions to make clear the criteria for filling out the short form. Second, BXA must define the technical terms used in the form and their definition must be incorporated into the form. Third, BXA must explore ways to reduce th considerable burden placed on businesses who fill out ITA-6031P because they cannot decipher the regulations and do not know if and when they apply. Such an effort might include developing a list of product model numbers or parameter criteria that would not necessitate filling out ITA-6031P. Fourth, BXA must present a plan for electronic filing of the information collected on ITA-6031P. Fifth, BXA must provide OMB with a detailed report on recent or upcoming COCOM discussions/negotiations/reforms concerning computer controls, including planned BXA and U.S. negotiating positions. Finally, BXA must submit a separate paperwork package for its special information requirements concerning supercomputers.
