The revised factsheet is available on the Web at http://www.aphis.usda.gov/ publications/animal_welfare/2012/ retail_pets_faq.pdf. Background On May 16, 2012, we published in the Federal Register (77 FR 28799–28805, Docket No. APHIS–2011–0003) a proposal to revise the definition of retail pet store and related regulations to bring more pet animals sold at retail under the protection of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). ‘‘Retail pet stores’’ are not required to obtain a license under the AWA or comply with the AWA regulations and standards. Currently, anyone selling, at retail, the following animals for use as pets are considered retail pet stores: Dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, rats, mice, gophers, chinchilla, domestic ferrets, domestic farm animals, birds, and cold-blooded species. Under the proposed rule, ‘‘retail pet store’’ status would not apply to such retailers if buyers do not physically enter the seller’s place of business or residence in order to personally observe the animals available for sale prior to purchase and/or to take custody of the animals after purchase. Unless otherwise exempt under the regulations, these entities would be required to obtain a license from APHIS and would become subject to the requirements of the AWA. The proposed rule would exempt from regulation anyone who sells or negotiates the sale or purchase of any animal, except wild or exotic animals, dogs, or cats, and who derives no more than $500 gross income from the sale of such animals. In addition, the proposed rule would increase from three to four the number of breeding female dogs, cats, and/or small exotic or wild mammals that a person may maintain on his or her premises and be exempt from licensing and inspection if he or she sells only the offspring of those animals born and raised on his or Done in Washington, DC, this 11th day of July 2012.

address and enhance the web-based submission procedure for notices 
filed under the regulation's fiduciary class exemption provision.

technical and anticipates no significant adverse comment. The

the direct final rule. If the Department receives no significant 
adverse comment during the comment period, no further action on this 
proposed rule will be taken. If, however, the Department receives 
significant adverse comment, the Department will withdraw the direct 
final rule and it will not take effect. In that case, the Department 
will address all public comments in a subsequent final rule based on

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As noted above, in the ``Rules and 
Regulations'' section of today's Federal Register, the direct final 
rule being published makes technical changes to the Department's 
existing fiduciary-level fee disclosure regulation under ERISA section 
408(b)(2) (the ``408(b)(2) regulation''). The 408(b)(2) regulation 
includes a class exemption provision (in paragraph (c)(1)(ix)) pursuant 
to which ``innocent'' responsible plan fiduciaries may obtain relief 
when they unknowingly receive incomplete or incorrect disclosures from 
a covered service provider. In certain circumstances, the responsible 
plan fiduciary, in order to obtain relief, must file a notice with the 
Department of Labor concerning the covered service provider's failure 
(paragraph (c)(1)(ix)(C)). The final rule provides that notices may be 
sent to a Departmental mailing address or submitted electronically to a 
specified email address (paragraph (c)(1)(ix)(F)). The direct final 
rule amends this paragraph of the 408(b)(2) regulation to provide that 
notices may be sent to a revised Departmental mailing address or, in 
lieu of the previously furnished email address, pursuant to separate 
instructions provided by the Department. Such instructions will enable 
submission through a dedicated link on the Department's Web site, at 
www.dol.gov/ebsa/regs/feedisclosurefailurenotice.html. The amendment 
proposed by this notice is the same as the amendment contained in the 
direct final rule. Please refer to the preamble and regulatory text of 
the direct final rule for further information and the actual text of 
the amendment. Additionally, all information regarding Statutory and 
Executive Orders for this proposed rule can be found in the 
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of the direct final rule.
