ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The current regulation at 20 CFR 422.527 requires a person, 
institution, or organization (person) to obtain approval from the 
Social Security Administration (SSA) prior to reproducing, duplicating, 
or privately printing any application or other form prescribed by the 
Administration. Such approval has been required whether or not the 
person intended to charge a fee for SSA's application(s) or other 
form(s). Section 1140(a)(2)(A) of the Social Security Act (the Act) 
prohibits a person from charging a fee to reproduce, reprint, or 
distribute any SSA application, form, or publication unless he/she 
obtains the authorization of the Commissioner of Social Security in 
accordance with such regulations as he may prescribe. (42 U.S.C. 1320b-
10(a)(2)(A)). This proposed rule would implement section 1140(a)(2)(A) 
of the Act by adding SSA's publications to the pre-authorization 
requirement identified in 20 CFR 422.527 and by establishing that SSA's 
authorization is required only when the person intends to charge a fee. 
The proposed rule also would prescribe the procedures a person who 
intends to charge a fee must follow to obtain SSA's written 
authorization prior to reproducing, reprinting, and/or distributing 
SSA's applications, forms, or publications.

Background

    The current regulation at 20 CFR 422.527 requires any person who 
wishes to reproduce, duplicate, or privately print any application or 
other form prescribed by SSA to obtain prior approval of such use from 
SSA. Consistent with the requirements of 20 CFR 422.527, in 1992, SSA 
began approving requests from the public to duplicate or privately 
print the Administration's applications or other forms. The requirement 
to obtain SSA approval applied whether or not the person intended to 
charge a fee.

[[Page 45992]]

    Section 312(a) of the Social Security Independence and Program 
Improvement Act (SSIPA) amended the Social Security Act (the Act) and, 
among other things, added section 1140(a)(2)(A) to the Act. Pub. L. 
103-296, Sec. 312(a) (codified as 42 U.S.C. Sec.  1320b-10(a)(2)(A)). 
This section prohibits any person from charging a fee to reproduce, 
reprint, or distribute SSA's official applications, forms, or 
publications unless the Commissioner grants the person specific written 
authorization in accordance with regulations which the Commissioner 
shall prescribe. This proposed rule would implement section 312(a) of 
the SSIPA by adding SSA publications to the current regulation and by 
providing for SSA's prior approval of requests to reproduce, reprint, 
and/or distribute its applications, forms, or publications when the 
person intends to charge a fee. Furthermore, our proposed rule would 
implement section 312(a) by establishing the procedure any person who 
intends to charge a fee for reproducing, reprinting, or distributing 
SSA materials must follow to obtain SSA's prior approval. The 
requirement to obtain SSA's prior approval would apply regardless of 
the means the person uses to transmit the document, e.g., Internet or 
direct mail. This regulation would help to ensure that consumers obtain 
accurate and current materials and information regarding the 
Administration's programs.

Clarity of This Regulation

    Executive Order 12866, as amended, requires each agency to write 
all rules in plain language. In addition to your substantive comments 
on this proposed rule, we invite your comments on how to make this 
proposed rule easier to understand.
    For example:
     Have we organized the material to suit your needs?
     Are the requirements of the rule clearly stated?
     Does the rule contain technical language or jargon that 
isn't clear?
     Would a different format (grouping and order of sections, 
use of headings, paragraphing) make the rule easier to understand?
     Would more (but shorter) sections be better?
     Could we improve the clarity by adding tables, lists, or 
diagrams?
     What else could we do to make the rule easier to 
understand?

Regulatory Procedures

Executive Order 12866

    We have consulted with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
and determined that this proposed rule does not meet the criteria for a 
significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866, as amended.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    We certify that this proposed regulation will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. 
Therefore, a regulatory flexibility analysis as provided in the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act, as amended, is not required.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    The proposed rule at 20 CFR 422.527 contains information collection 
requirements. SSA will collect the information called for in this

of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance. We are soliciting

automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology. Comments should be submitted to the OMB and to the Social
