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 issued in connection with an employee benefit plan. 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 2,140 respondents. In addition, we estimate that 50% of the preparation time (13.5 hours) is completed in-house by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 28,890 hours (13.5 hours per response × 2,140 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.
