More specifically, this PTE describes the conditions under which a plan may acquire customer notes accepted by an employer of employees covered by the plan in the ordinary course of the employer’s business activity and, thus, be exempt from the prohibited transaction restrictions; provided, the exemption conditions are met. The PTE covers sales as well as contributions of customer notes by an employer to its plan. The customer notes must have been accepted by the employer in its primary business activity as the seller of tangible personal property that is being financed by the notes, so that the exemption does not apply to notes of an employer’s affiliate. The PTE includes a recordkeeping provision that requires a plan seeking to use the exemption to maintain records that enable an interested party to determine whether the exemption conditions have been met. These records must be maintained for six (6) years from the date of the transaction. The PTE also requires those records be made available to certain persons on request. Without this recordkeeping requirement, the DOL would be hampered in enforcing the exemption terms and ensure user compliance. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73885 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 1210–0094. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on May 22, 2013 (78 FR 30333). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1210– 0094. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
