PTE 1977–4 incorporates three basic disclosure requirements. The first requirement is to disclose any redemption fees in the current prospectus of the open-end mutual fund. The second requirement is that, at the time of the purchase or sale of such mutual fund shares, an independent fiduciary receive a copy of the current prospectus issued by the open-end mutual fund and full written disclosure of the investment advisory fees charged to or paid by the plan and the open-end mutual fund to the investment advisor. The third requirement is that the independent fiduciary (1) be notified of any changes in the fees and (2) give written approval for the plan to purchase or sell affected mutual fund shares or the plan to continue possession of any such mutual fund shares acquired before the fee changes.

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.
