Form F–6 (17 CFR 239.36) is a form used by foreign companies to register the offer and sale of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.). Form F–6 requires disclosure of information regarding the terms of the depository bank, fees charged, and a description of the ADRs. No special information regarding the foreign company is required to be prepared or disclosed, although the foreign company must be one which periodically furnishes information to the Commission. The information is needed to ensure that investors in ADRs have full disclosure of information concerning the deposit agreement and the foreign company. Form F–6 takes approximately 1 hour per response to prepare and is filed by 150 respondents annually. We estimate that 25% of the 1 hour per response (.25 hours) is prepared by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 37.5 hours (.25 hours per response × 150 responses). The information provided on Form F– 6 is mandatory to best ensure full disclosure of ADRs being issued in the U.S. All information provided to the Commission is available for public review upon request.

RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD


Proposed Collection; Comment Request

    Summary: In accordance with the requirement of Section 3506 
(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 which provides 
opportunity for public comment on new or revised data collections, the 
Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) will publish periodic summaries of 
proposed data collections.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information 
collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; 
(b) the accuracy of the RRB's estimate of the burden of the collection 
of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize 
the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
    Title and purpose of information collection: Employee's 
Certification; OMB 3220-0140 Section 2 of the Railroad Retirement Act 
(RRA), provides for the payment of an annuity to the spouse or divorced 
spouse of a retired railroad employee. For the spouse or divorced 
spouse to qualify for an annuity, the RRB must determine if any of the 
employee's current marriage to the applicant is valid.
    The requirements for obtaining documentary evidence to determine 
valid marital relationships are prescribed in 20 CFR 219.30 through 
219.35. Section 2(e) of the RRA requires that an employee must 
relinquish all rights to any railroad employer service before a spouse 
annuity can be paid.
    The RRB uses Form G-346 to obtain the information needed to 
determine whether the employee's current marriage is valid. Form G-346 
is completed by the retired employee who is the husband or wife of the 
applicant for a spouse annuity. Completion is required to obtain a 
benefit. One response is requested of each respondent. The RRB proposes 
no

changes to Form G-346. The RRB estimates that 4,830 G-346's will be 
completed annually at an estimated completion time of five minutes per 
response. Total respondent burden is estimated at 403 hours.
    In accordance with amended regulation 20 CFR 217.17, the RRB 
proposes the implementation of Form G-346sum. Proposed Form G-346sum, 
which will mirror the information collected on Form G-346, will be used 
when an employee, after being interviewed by an RRB field office staff 
member ``signs'' the form using an alternative signature method known 
as ``attestation''. Attestation refers to the action taken by the RRB 
field office employee to confirm and annotate the RRB's records of the 
applicant's affirmation under penalty of perjury that the information 
provided is correct and the applicant's agreement to sign the form by 
proxy. The RRB estimates that 2,070 G-346sum's will be completed 
annually at an estimated completion time of five minutes per response. 
Total respondent burden is estimated at 172 hours.
    Additional Information or Comments: To request more information or 
to obtain a copy of the information collection justification, forms, 
and/or supporting material, contact Charles Mierzwa, the RRB Clearance 
Officer, at (312) 751-3363 or Charles.Mierzwa@RRB.GOV. Comments 
regarding the information collection should be addressed to Patricia 
Henaghan, Railroad Retirement Board, 844 North Rush Street, Chicago,
