SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On Thursday, August 14, 2014, BEA published a final rule reinstating in the Code of Federal Regulations BEA's BE-13 Survey of New Foreign Direct Investment in the United States (79 FR 47573). That rule incorrectly identified the Regulation Identifier Number (RIN) as 0691-XC025. The correct RIN for this action is 0691-AA82.

The document also stated that OMB had approved the information collection for BE-13 under OMB control number 0608-0035. This control number has expired, and BEA has requested it be renewed by OMB. That request is currently pending approval at OMB. Once OMB approves the information collection, BEA will publish a document in the Federal Register informing the public that the control number has been approved. Until that time, no party is required to provide any information to BEA based on OMB control number 0608-0035.

Finally, the document stated that the final rule is effective on September 15, 2014. The effective date of the final rule will be announced after OMB issues a valid OMB control number for the information collection.
