SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 6, 2015, the FTC sought public 
comment on the information collection requirements associated with 
subpart N (80 FR 46988). No relevant comments were received. That 
Notice details staff's methodology behind the estimates restated here 
in summary form, while also providing an overview of the Rule and the 
underlying authorizing statute.
    Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, that implement 
the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing a second 
opportunity for the public to comment on:
    (1) Whether the disclosure requirements are necessary, including 
whether the information will be practically useful; (2) the accuracy of 
our burden estimates, including whether the methodology and assumptions 
used are valid; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity 
of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden 
of the collection of information.
    As before, the Commission specifically seeks more recent estimates 
of the number of requests consumers are making for free annual file 
disclosures. In addition to data on the number of requests, data on how 
the number of requests has changed over time, and how these requests 
are being received--by Internet, phone, or by mail--would be most 
helpful toward refining the FTC's burden estimates.
    The following summarizes the FTC net burden estimates \2\ resulting 
from the analysis detailed in the August 6, 2015 Notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Because the FTC shares enforcement authority with the CFPB 
for subpart N, the two agencies are splitting between them the 
related estimate of PRA burden for firms under their co-enforcement 
jurisdiction.
