Extension: Form S-8; OMB Control No. 3235-0066; SEC File No. 270-66.
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 this request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below.
Form S-8 (17 CFR 239.16b) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) is the primary registration statement used by eligible registrants to register securities to be issuers in connection with employee benefit plans. Form S-8 provides verification of compliance with securities law requirements and assures the public availability and dissemination of such information. The likely respondents will be companies. The information must be filed with the Commission on occasion. Form S-8 is a public document. All information provided is mandatory. We estimate that Form S-8 takes approximately 24 hours per response to prepare and is filed by approximately 2,680 respondents. In addition, we estimate that 50% of the 24 hours per response (12 hours per response) is prepared by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 32,160 hours (12 hours per response × 2,680 responses).
An agency may conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 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 or send an e-mail to: Shagufta_Ahmed@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) Charles Boucher, Director/CIO, Securities and Exchange Commission, C/O Shirley Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, VA 22312; or send an e-mail to PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov. Comments must be submitted to OMB within 30 days of this notice.Start Signature
