The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. Form CB (17 CFR 239.800) is a Document filed in connection with a tender offer for a foreign private issuer. This form is used to report an issuer tender offer conducted in compliance with Exchange Act Rule 13e–4(h)(8) (17 CFR 240.13e–4(h)(8)) and a third-party tender offer conducted in compliance with Exchange Act Rule 14d–1(c) (17 CFR 240.14d–1(c)). Form CB takes approximately 0.5 hours per response to prepare and is filed by approximately 111 respondents annually. We estimate that 25% of the 0.5 hours per response (0.125 hours) is prepared by the respondent for an annual reporting burden of 14 hours (0.125 hours per response x 111 responses). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether this proposed collection of information is necessary for the performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden imposed by the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. Please direct your written comment to Pamela Dyson, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi PavlikSimon, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549 or send an email to: PRA_ Mailbox@sec.gov.

Background: The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published under 2120–0524 on October 13, 2016 (81 FR 70736). There were no comments. The FAA has implemented several initiatives to address congestion and delay issues within the National Airspace System. The FAA has issued Orders limiting operations at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Jul 11, 2017 Jkt 241001 Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), and LaGuardia Airport (LGA). These Orders resulted in part from increasing congestion and delays at the airports requiring the FAA to allocate arrival and departure slots at JFK, EWR, and LGA. On April 6, 2016, the FAA announced a reduction in slot controls at EWR and designation of EWR as a Level 2, schedule-facilitated airport under the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Worldwide Slot Guidelines (WSG) based on an updated demand and capacity analysis of the airport. This change was effective from the Winter 2016 scheduling season, which began on October 30, 2016. The FAA also has designated O’Hare International Airport (ORD), San Francisco International Airport (SFO), and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as Level 2 airports under the IATA WSG. These Level 2 designations resulted in part from increasing congestion and delays at the airports requiring FAA to implement a voluntary process to manage operational growth at ORD and SFO. The Level 2 designation was made at LAX due to a long-term construction project expected to reduce runway capacity; therefore, the designation is not expected to continue beyond the completion of the planned construction at LAX. The information is reported to the FAA by carriers holding a slot at JFK or LGA; by carriers operating at EWR, LAX, ORD, or SFO; and by operators conducting unscheduled operations at LGA. At JFK, carriers must notify the FAA of: (1) Requests for confirmation of transferred slots; (2) requests for seasonal allocation of historic and additional available slots; and (3) usage of slots on a seasonal basis. At LGA, carriers must notify the FAA of: (1) Requests for confirmation of transferred slots; (2) slots required to be returned or slots voluntarily returned; (3) requests to be included in a lottery for available slots; and (4) usage of slots on a bi-monthly basis. At LGA, unscheduled operators must request and obtain a reservation from the FAA prior to conducting an operation. At EWR, LAX, ORD and SFO, carriers are asked to notify the FAA of their intended operating schedules during peak hours on a semiannual basis. The FAA estimates that all information from carriers is submitted electronically from information stored in carrier scheduling databases, and that nearly all requests for unscheduled operation reservations are submitted electronically through either an internet or touch-tone system interface. Respondents: 200 carriers at various airports; unknown number of PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 unscheduled operators at LaGuardia Airport. Frequency: Information is collected as needed; some reporting on bimonthly or semiannual basis. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 2 minutes per unscheduled operation reservation; 6 minutes per notice of slot transfer; 2 hour per schedule submission or slot request; and 2 hours per slot usage report. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 5,049.5 hours. Issued in Washington, DC, on June 28, 2017.
