The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) is seeking public comments on its proposal to extend through May 31, 2010 the current PRA clearance for information collection requirements contained its Antitrust Improvements Act Rules (‘‘HSR Rules’’) and corresponding Notification and Report Form for Certain Mergers and Acquisitions (‘‘Notification and Report Form’’), 16 CFR Parts 801–803. That clearance expires on May 31, 2007. DATES: Comments must be filed by May 11, 2007. ADDRESSES: Interested parties are invited to submit written comments.

Because paper mail in the Washington area and at the Commission is subject to delay, please consider submitting your comments in electronic form, as prescribed below. However, if the comment contains any material for which confidential treatment is requested, it must be filed in paper form, and the first page of the document must be clearly labeled ‘‘Confidential.’’ 1 The FTC is requesting cprice-sewell on PRODPC61 with NOTICES SUMMARY: 1 Commission Rule 4.2(d), 16 CFR 4.2(d). The comment must be accompanied by an explicit request for confidential treatment, including the factual and legal basis for the request, and must identify the specific portions of the comment to be withheld from the public record. The request will be granted or denied by the Commission’s General Counsel, consistent with applicable law and the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:09 Apr 10, 2007 Jkt 211001 that any comment filed in paper form be sent by courier or overnight service, if possible.

If this notice appears at www.regulations.gov, you may also file an electronic comment through that Web site. The Commission will consider all comments that regulations.gov forwards to it. Comments should also be submitted to: Office of Management and Budget, Attention: Desk Officer for the Federal Trade Commission. Comments should be submitted via facsimile to (202) 395– 6974 because U.S. Postal Mail is subject to lengthy delays due to heightened security precautions. The FTC Act and other laws the Commission administers permit the collection of public comments to consider and use in this proceeding as appropriate. All timely and responsive public comments, whether filed in paper or electronic form, will be considered by the Commission, and will be available to the public on the FTC Web site, to the extent practicable, at http://www.ftc.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the proposed information requirements should be addressed to B. Michael Verne, Compliance Specialist, 600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW., Room 301, Washington, DC 20580. Telephone: (202) 326–3100. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act (‘‘PRA’’), 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, federal agencies must obtain approval from OMB for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. On January 12, 2007, the FTC sought comment on the information collection requirements associated with the HSR Rules and the corresponding Notification and Report Form (OMB Control Number: 3085– public interest. See Commission Rule 4.9(c), 16 CFR 4.9(c). PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18251 0005). No comments were received. Pursuant to the OMB regulations that implement the PRA (5 CFR Part 1320), the FTC is providing this second opportunity for public comment while seeking OMB approval to extend the existing paperwork clearance for the HSR Rules and the corresponding Notification and Report Form. All comments should be filed as prescribed in the ADDRESSES section above, and must be received on or before May 11, 2007. Background Information Section 7A of the Clayton Act (‘‘Act’’), 15 U.S.C. 18a, as amended by the HartScott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, Public Law 94–435, 90 Stat. 1390, requires all persons contemplating certain mergers or acquisitions to file notification with the Commission and the Assistant Attorney General and to wait a designated period of time before consummating such transactions. Congress empowered the Commission, with the concurrence of the Assistant Attorney General, to require ‘‘that the notification * * * be in such form and contain such documentary material and information * * * as is necessary and appropriate’’ to enable the agencies ‘‘to determine whether such acquisitions may, if consummated, violate the antitrust laws.’’ 15 U.S.C. 18a(d). Congress similarly granted rulemaking authority to, inter alia, ‘‘prescribe such other rules as may be necessary and appropriate to carry out the purposes of this section.’’ Id. Pursuant to that section, the Commission, with the concurrence of the Assistant Attorney General, developed the HSR Rules and the corresponding Notification and Report Form. As discussed below, several changes have been made to the HSR Rules and the Notification and Report Form since FTC staff last sought OMB approval for the clearance. Burden Statement Estimated total annual hours burden: 156,000 hours (rounded to the nearest thousand). The following burden estimates are primarily based on FTC data concerning the number of HSR filings and staff’s informal consultations with leading HSR counsel. In its 2004 PRA submission to OMB regarding the HSR Rules and the Notification and Report Form, FTC staff estimated that there were 21 ‘‘index filings’’ under Clayton Act Sections 7A(c)(6) and 7A(c)(8) that required 2 hours per filing, and 2,192 non-index filings that required an average of 39 E:\FR\FM\11APN1.SGM 11APN1
