Regulation C, OMB Control No. 3235-0074, SEC File No. 270-068. Form SB-1, OMB Control No. 3235-0423, SEC File No. 270-374.
Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget request for extension of the previously approved collections of information discussed below.
Regulation C provides standard instructions to guide persons when filing registration statements under the Securities Act of 1933. The information collected is intended to ensure the adequacy of information available to investors in the registration of securities. The information provided is mandatory. Regulation C is assigned one burden hour for administrative convenience because the regulation simply prescribes the disclosure that must appear in other filings under the federal securities laws. Also, persons who respond to the collection information contained in Regulation C are not required to respond unless the forms display a currently valid control number.
Small Business issuers use Form SB-1, as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act of 1933 (“Securities Act”) to register up to $10 million of securities to be sold for cash, if they have not registered more than $10 million in securities offerings in any continuous 12-month period, including the transaction being registered. The information to be collected is intended to ensure the adequacy of information available to investors in the registration of securities and assures public availability. The information provided is mandatory. All information provided to the Commission is available to the Start Printed Page 48650public for review. Approximately 17 respondents filed Form SB-1 during the last fiscal year at an estimated 177 hours per response for a total annual burden of 12,036 hours. It is estimated that 25% of the total burden (3,009 hours) is prepared by the company. Also, persons who respond to the collection information contained in Form SB-1 are not required to respond unless the form displays a currently valid control number.
Written comments regarding the above information should be directed to the following persons: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503; and (ii) Kenneth A. Fogash, Acting Associate Executive Director/CIO, Office of Information Technology, Securities and Exchange Commission, 450 Fifth Street, NW., Washington, DC 20549. Comments must be submitted to OMB within 30 days of this notice.Start Signature
