Form 20-F; SEC File No. 270-156, OMB Control No. 3235-0288.
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 20-F (17 CFR 249.220f) is used by foreign private issuers to register securities pursuant to Section 12(b) or (g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) (15 U.S.C. 78 l) or as annual and transitional reports pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78m(a) and 78o(d)). The information required in the Form 20-F is used by investors in making investment decisions with respect to the securities of such foreign private issuers. We estimate that Form 20-F takes approximately 2,645.52 hours per response and is filed by approximately 725 respondents. We estimate that 25% of the 2,645.52 hours per response (661.38 hours) is prepared by the issuer for a total reporting burden of 479,501 (661.38 hours per response × 725 responses).
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.
The public may view the background documentation for this information collection at the following Web site, www.reginfo.gov . Comments should be directed to: (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 by sending an email to: Shagufta_Ahmed@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) Pamela Dyson, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi Pavlik-Simon, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549 or send an email to: PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov.
