Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 237 / Tuesday, December 10, 2019 / Notices Statutory and Regulatory Criteria POSTAL REGULATORY COMMISSION In addition to requiring that alternative arbitration procedures mirror PBGC’s default rules of arbitration, § 4221.14 provides the procedure and criteria for approval. The Procedure for approval of alternative procedures under § 4221.14(c) provides that an application requesting approval shall include (1) a copy of the procedures for which approval is sought; (2) a description of the history, structure and membership of the organization that sponsors the procedures; and (3) a discussion of the reasons why, in the sponsoring organization’s opinion, the procedures satisfy the criteria for approval set forth in 4221.14(d). The Criteria for approval of alternative procedures under § 4221.14(d) provides: ‘‘PBGC shall approve an application if it determines that the proposed procedures will be substantially fair to all parties involved in the arbitration of a withdrawal liability dispute and that the sponsoring organization is neutral and able to carry out its role under the procedures.’’ [Docket Nos. MC2020–45 and CP2020–43; MC2020–46 and CP2020–44] Determination jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES In light of the significant increase of fees in the 2013 MPPAR and the comments submitted by interested parties, PBGC resumed discussions with AAA to seek changes to ensure the proposed rules were substantially fair to all parties involved in the arbitration of withdrawal liability disputes. PBGC advised AAA that three specific issues needed to be addressed for any amendment to the 1986 MPPAR to be approved: (i) Fee Increase; (ii) Apportionment of Fees; and (iii) Arbitrator Selection Process. The discussions resulted in proposed changes by AAA which are memorialized in the 2019 Rules as discussed above. PBGC has determined that the changes reflected in the 2019 Rules are consistent with the requirements of section 4221 of ERISA and the regulatory requirements under § 4221.14(d) in that they are fair to all parties involved in the arbitration of a withdrawal liability dispute and AAA is neutral and able to carry out its role under the procedures. This approval is effective unless revoked by PBGC, and future changes, including changes to the applicable fee schedule will be subject to PBGC review under § 4211.14(d). Issued in Washington, DC. Gordon Hartogensis, Director, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
