SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, Federal agencies must obtain approval from OMB for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ means agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. 44 U.S.C. 3502(3), 5 CFR 1320.3(c). As required by section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, the FTC is providing this opportunity for public comment before requesting that OMB extend the existing paperwork clearance for the Funeral Rule, 16 CFR part 453 (OMB Control Number 3084– 0025). The Funeral Rule ensures that consumers who are purchasing funeral goods and services have access to accurate itemized price information so they can purchase only the funeral goods and services they want or need. In particular, the Rule requires a funeral provider to: (1) Give consumers a copy they can keep of the funeral provider’s General Price List (‘‘GPL’’) that itemizes the goods and services they offer; (2) show consumers their Casket Price List (‘‘CPL’’) and their Outer Burial Container Price List (‘‘OBCPL’’) at the outset of any discussion of those items PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15123 or their prices, and in any event before showing consumers caskets or burial containers; (3) provide price information from their price lists over the telephone; and (4) give consumers a Statement of Funeral Goods and Services Selected (‘‘SFGSS’’) after determining the funeral arrangements with the consumer (the ‘‘arrangements conference’’). The Rule requires that funeral providers disclose this information to consumers and maintain records to facilitate enforcement of the Rule. The estimated burden associated with the collection of information required by the Rule is 19,680 hours for recordkeeping, 102,021 hours for disclosure, and 39,360 hours for compliance training for a cumulative total of 161,061 hours. This estimate is based on the number of funeral providers (approximately 19,680),1 the number of funerals per year (an estimated 2,513,171),2 and the time needed to fulfill the information collection tasks required by the Rule. Recordkeeping: The Rule requires that funeral providers retain for one year copies of price lists and statements of funeral goods and services selected by consumers. Based on a maximum average burden of one hour per provider per year for this task, the total burden for the 19,680 providers is 19,680 hours. Disclosure: As noted above, the Rule requires that funeral providers: (1) Maintain current price lists for funeral goods and services, (2) provide written documentation of the funeral goods and services selected by consumers making funeral arrangements, and (3) provide information about funeral prices in response to telephone inquiries. 1. Maintaining accurate price lists may require that funeral providers revise their price lists occasionally (most do so once a year, some less frequently) to reflect price changes. Staff conservatively estimates that this task may require a maximum average burden of two and one-half hours per provider 1 The estimated number of funeral providers is from 2012 data provided on the National Funeral Directors Association (‘‘NFDA’’) Web site (see http://nfda.org/about-funeral-service-/trends-andstatistics.html). 2 The estimated number of funerals conducted annually is derived from the National Center for Health Statistics (‘‘NCHS’’), http://www.cdc.gov/ nchs/. According to NCHS, 2,513,171 deaths occurred in the United States in 2011, the most recent year for which final data is available. See National Vital Statistics Reports, vol. 61, no. 06, ‘‘Deaths: Preliminary Data for 2011,’’ available at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr61/ nvsr61_06.pdf. Staff believes this is a conservative estimate because not all remains go to a funeral provider covered by the Rule (e.g., remains sent directly to a crematory that does not sell urns; remains donated to a medical school, etc.).
