The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3521, and OMB's implementing regulations, 5 CFR Part 1320, require OMB to review certain information collection requirements imposed by federal agency rules. Upon approval of an agency requirement, OMB issues a control number. The agency must display this control Start Printed Page 65558number to inform the public that the agency's information collection requirements have been approved by OMB. For ease of reference, the Commission has determined to publish all the control numbers assigned to its rules (and rules it otherwise co-enforces with another federal agency) in a centrally codified table in the Code of Federal Regulations.
This rule, which pertains to agency procedure, organization, or practice, is exempt from the public notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act. See 5 U.S.C. 553(b). For the same reason, the Commission is not required to prepare and publish a regulatory flexibility analysis to accompany this rule under the Regulatory Flexibility Act. See 5 U.S.C. 603, 604.

(a) Purpose. This part collects and displays control numbers assigned by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 to information collection requirements in rules issued or enforced by the Commission. A response to an information collection is not required unless the collection of information displays a valid OMB control number.
