  3. making appropriate recommendations on requests for a waiver of Information Form and Monitoring Report filing requirements;
  4. maintaining the Commission's official agreement archives; and
  5. maintaining an agreement database that contains pertinent information on each ocean common carrier and marine terminal operator agreement filed with the Commission.
