    2. The Title of the Form/Collection: Exhibit B to Registration 
Statement (Foreign Agents).
    3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of 
the Department sponsoring the collection: The form number is NSD-4. The

Agents Registration Act (FARA) Unit, Counterintelligence and Export 
Control Section, in the National Security Division. Pursuant to the 
Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, as amended, 22 U.S.C. 611 et 
seq. (FARA or the Act), the FARA registration forms previously 
submitted to OMB for 3 year renewal approvals, have since March 2011 
contained fillable-fileable, and E-signature capabilities. The FARA 
eFile system, in operation since March 1, 2011, permits registrants to 
file their registration forms electronically to the FARA Registration 
Unit, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. FARA eFile is accessed via the 
Department's FARA public Web site located at https://www.fara.gov/efile.html, and provides instructions to assist registrants in 
completing, signing and submitting the required FARA registration 
forms, as well as instructions on how to electronically pay the 
required registration fees via online credit or debit card payments.
    4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Primary: Private Sector, Business or other 
for-profit, Not-for-profit institutions, and individuals. The form 
contains registration statement information used for registering 
foreign agents under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, as 
amended, 22 U.S.C. 611 et seq.
    5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of 
time estimated for an average respondent to respond: The total 
estimated number of responses to the form is 178 at approximately .33 
hours (20 minutes) per response, based on an average of FARA Exhibit B 
to Registration Statement filings received from January 1, 2014 through 
December 31, 2016. Internal sample testing shows an average of .33 
hours (20 minutes) per respondent is needed to complete form NSD-4 (OMB 
1124-0004). The following factors were considered when creating the 
burden estimate: the estimated total number of registrant respondents, 
the ability of registrants to access or gather the necessary data from 
sometimes multiple offices within their corporate structures, and the 
intuitive registration features NSD makes available for registrant 
respondents via the online FARA eFile registration and payment system 
located at https://www.fara.gov/efile.html. NSD estimates that nearly 
all of the approximately 178 respondents will fully complete the form.
    6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this 
collection is 58.74 annual burden hours. It is estimated that 
respondents will take .33 hours (20 minutes) to complete the form. The 
burden hours for collecting respondent data equals 58.74 annual burden 
hours (178 respondents x .33 hours (20 minutes) = 58.74 hours).
    7. Registrants/foreign agents and the general public are alerted 
that in the future, the National Security Division will complete its 
ongoing multi-year design review, testing, and requirements enhancement 
efforts to offer a web form version of form NSD-4. NSD continues to

its current fillable FARA registration forms with the intent of 
providing greater standardization, improved intuitive features, and 
less burdensome requirements that will benefit registrants and foreign 
agents who are required to register under FARA. New capabilities are

the new features will offer an enhanced system, promoting greater 
transparency.
