BILLING CODE 4310–T2–P SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: This ICR is to obtain OMB approval for changes to the Annual Refiling Survey (ARS), which is used in conjunction with the Unemployment Insurance tax reporting system in each State. The primary purpose of the ARS is to verify or to correct the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code assigned to establishments, as well as to obtain accurate mailing and physical location addresses of establishments. As a result, changes in the industrial and geographical compositions of the economy are captured in a timely manner and reflected in BLS statistical programs. Federal, State, and Local Governmental officials, as well as private researchers, depend on accurate geographical and industrial coding based on the 2012 North American Industry Classification System Manual. This ICR has been classified as a revision, because of minor changes to the notification letters and collection instruments. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1220–0032. The current approval is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2013; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval.
