This information collection is subject to the PRA. 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. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection
under Control Number 1218-0184. The current approval is scheduled to
expire on April 30, 2013; however, it should be noted that existing
information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a
month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional
information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register
on January 30, 2013 (78 FR 6350).

Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in
