In 1981 and 1982, the Department issued two related prohibited transaction class exemptions, PTE 81–6 and PTE 82–63, that permit employee benefit plans to lend securities owned by the plans as investments to banks and broker-dealers and to make compensation arrangements for lending services provided by a plan fiduciary in connection with securities loans. In 2006, the Department promulgated PTE 2006–16, which combines and amends the exemptions previously provided under PTE 81–6 and PTE 82–63. The new exemption expands the categories of exempted transactions to include securities lending to foreign banks and broker-dealers that are domiciled in specified countries and to allow the use of additional forms of collateral, all subject to specified conditions. Among other conditions, the class exemption requires that a bank or broker-dealer that borrows securities from a plan must provide the plan with its most recent audited financial statement. The borrower must also affirm, when the loan is negotiated, that there has been no material adverse change in its financial condition since the previously audited statement. The exemption also requires that the agreements regarding the securities loan transaction or transactions and the compensation arrangement for the lending fiduciary must be contained in written documents. Individual agreements are not required for each transaction; rather the compensation agreement may be made in the form of a master agreement covering a series of transactions. The ICRs contained in PTE 2006–16 were approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under OMB Control No. 1210–0065, which currently is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2009. II.
