ERISA and the Code require persons that fail to make payments to notify PBGC within 10 days of the due date whenever there is a failure to make a required payment and the total of the unpaid balances (including interest) exceeds $1 million. PBGC Form 200, Notice of Failure to Make Required Contributions, and related instructions implement the statutory notification requirement. Submission of Form 200 is required by 29 CFR 4043.81 (Subpart D of PBGC’s regulation on Reportable Events and Other Notification Requirements, 29 CFR part 4043). PBGC currently requires filers to report the due date of the required payment that triggered the notification to PBGC and to calculate the cumulative amount of unpaid balances. PBGC is proposing to modify the form to include a separate field showing the payment amount that triggered the notification in order to better track missed contributions and identify the amount by which liens associated with missed contributions must be updated. OMB has approved this collection of information under OMB control number 1212–0041, which expires February 28, 2022. PBGC intends to request that OMB extend its approval for three years, with modifications. 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 OMB control number. PBGC estimates that it will receive 100 Form 200 filings per year and that the average annual burden of this collection of information is 100 hours and $72,500. Method of Filing PBGC’s reportable events and certain other notification requirements regulation (29 CFR part 4043) provides that reportable event notices required under this part must be filed electronically in accordance with the instructions posted on PBGC’s website. Those instructions currently provide two options for electronic filing: • Using the 4043 module of PBGC’s efiling portal, or • Emailing a completed form and any required attachments to postevent.report@pbgc.gov. PBGC’s e-filing portal, which has been available since 2016, offers a secure application for submitting Form 200 and Form 10 and 10-Advance information. The e-filing portal allows filers to review filings and generate a list of omissions and inconsistencies prior to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Nov 04, 2019 Jkt 250001 submission to ensure completeness; save a partially completed filing; modify information any time prior to submission; pre-populate a filing with data from a previously submitted filing; route the filing as needed to facilitate ecertifications; and review prior filings submitted via the e-filing portal. PBGC is proposing to eliminate the email option for filings due after September 30, 2021. In other words, starting in October 2021, these filings would have to be submitted via PBGC’s e-filing portal. PBGC also intends to make other editorial changes to the forms and instructions in these collections. PBGC is soliciting public comments to— • solicit feedback on the anticipated impact of eliminating the email filing option; • evaluate whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collections of information, including the validity of the methodologies and assumptions used; • enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • minimize the burden of the collections of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Initial Administrative Actions V. Ordering Paragraphs I. Introduction On October 29, 2019, the Postal Service filed a notice of specific peritem and per-kilogram self-declared prices for Inbound Letter Post Small Packets and Bulky Letters (E format) as well as a notice of price adjustment for certain Inbound Letter Post Small Packets and Bulky Letters pieces and associated Inbound Competitive International Registered Mail Service.1 The Postal Service intends for the prices to take effect on July 1, 2020. Notice at 1. The Postal Service’s Notice requests prompt review and approval of new prices for Inbound Letter Post Small Packets and Bulky Letters to facilitate its efforts to commence bilateral negotiations with foreign postal operators. Id. at 8. II. Background In Order No. 5152, the Commission approved a range of self-declared prices for Inbound Letter Post Small Packets and Bulky Letters from Universal Postal Union (UPU) group I, II, and III countries and from group IV countries with mail flows that exceed a certain annual tonnage threshold.2 The Commission also approved the application of default terminal dues established in the Universal Postal 1 Notice of the United States Postal Service of Effective Date and Specific Rates Not of General Applicability for Inbound E-Format Letter Post, and Application for Non-Public Treatment, October 29, 2019 (Notice). 2 Order Approving Range of Rates for Inbound Letter Post Small Packets and Bulky Letters and Associated International Registered Mail Service, July 12, 2019, at 5, 18 (Order No. 5152). The Postal Service applied an annual tonnage threshold of 100 tonnes. See Responses of the United States Postal Service to Questions 1–10 of Chairman’s Information Request No. 1, question 3.a, June 7, 2019. PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Convention to mail flows from group IV countries that do not exceed the annual tonnage threshold. Order No. 5152 at 5, 18. When approving the range of selfdeclared rates, the Commission directed the Postal Service to provide notice of specific per-item and per-kilogram prices at least 15 days before the effective date of those prices. Id. at 19. In September 2019, members of the UPU held a Third Extraordinary Congress and adopted proposals to reform the current terminal dues system for Inbound Letter Post small packets and bulky letters.3 Specifically, the Third Extraordinary Congress adopted proposals that will allow the Postal Service to charge self-declared prices for Inbound Letter Post small packets and bulky letters beginning July 1, 2020. Notice at 4. The Postal Service must provide notice of these self-declared prices to the UPU International Bureau by March 1, 2020. Id. III. Proposed Rates The Postal Service’s Notice includes an application for non-public treatment of materials filed under seal (Attachment 1), redacted specific peritem and per-kilogram self-declared prices for Inbound Letter Post Small Packets and Bulky Letters (Attachment 2), a redacted copy of Governors’ Decision No. 19–5 (Attachment 3), and a certification pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2) (Attachment 4). Id. Attachments 1–4. In addition, the Postal Service filed the proposed rates and underlying workpapers under seal in this docket. See Notice at 3. The Postal Service states that the specific per-item and per-kilogram prices and supporting workpapers should remain confidential. Id. at 7. The Postal Service further explains its request for non-public treatment of the specific self-declared prices in its application for non-public treatment, filed pursuant to 39 CFR part 3007. Id. Attachment 1 at 1. The Postal Service notes that the proposals adopted by the Third Extraordinary Congress necessitate a different price structure from what the Commission approved in Order No. 5152. See Notice at 5. Specifically, it plans to combine self-declared prices for Inbound Letter Post Small Packets and Bulky Letters with applicable rates for Inbound Letter Post letters and flats to ‘‘formulate blended rates for low volumes flows,’’ which will be applicable to group I countries with mail flows below 50 tonnes, and to group II and III countries with mail 3 See Docket No. IM2019–1, Notice and Order Establishing Section 407 Proceeding, June 20, 2019, at 1 (Order No. 5127).
