AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission (``FTC'' or ``Commission'').

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FTC intends to ask the Office of Management and Budget 
(``OMB'') to extend through November 30, 2016, the current Paperwork 
Reduction Act (``PRA'') clearance for the FTC's enforcement of the 
information collection requirements in its Prescreen Opt-Out Notice 
Rule (``Prescreen Opt-Out Rule'' or ``FTC Rule''), which applies to 
certain motor vehicle dealers, and its shared enforcement with the 
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (``CFPB'') of the provisions 
(subpart F) of the CFPB's Regulation V regarding other entities (``CFPB 
Rule''). That clearance expires on November 30, 2013.

DATES: Comments must be filed by October 15, 2013.

ADDRESSES: Interested parties are invited to submit written comments 
electronically or in paper form by following the instructions in the 
Request for Comment part of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section 
below. Write ``Prescreen Opt-Out Disclosure Rule, PRA Comment: FTC File 
No. P075417'' on your comment, and file your comment online at https://ftcpublic.commentworks.ftc/prescreenoptoutrulepra2, by following the 
instructions on the web-based form. If you prefer to file your comment 
on paper, mail or deliver your comment to the following address: 
Federal Trade Commission, Office of the Secretary, Room H-113 (Annex 
J), 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20580.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information 
should be addressed to Karen Jagielski, Attorney, Division of Privacy

(202) 326-2509.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    On June 25, 2013, the FTC sought public comment on the information 
collection requirements associated with the Prescreen Opt-Out Rule 
(June 25, 2013 Notice \1\), its shared enforcement with the Consumer 
Financial Protection Bureau (``CFPB'') of the provisions (subpart F) of 
the CFPB's Regulation V regarding other entities (``CFPB Rule''), and 
the FTC's associated PRA burden analysis. No comments were received. 
Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR Part 1320, that implement the 
PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing this second 
opportunity for public comment while seeking OMB approval to renew the 
pre-existing clearance for the Rule. All comments should be filed as 
prescribed herein, and must be received on or before October 15, 2013.

    \1\ 78 FR 38039.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Comments on the information collection requirements subject to 
review under the PRA should additionally be submitted to OMB. If sent 
by U.S. mail, they should be addressed to Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Attention: Desk 
Officer for the Federal Trade Commission, New Executive Office 
Building, Docket Library, Room 10102, 725 17th Street NW., Washington, 
DC 20503. Comments sent to OMB by U.S. postal mail, however, are 
subject to delays due to heightened security precautions. Thus, 
comments instead should be sent by facsimile to (202) 395-5167.

Burden Statement

    The FTC is seeking clearance for its assumed share of the estimated 
PRA burden regarding the disclosure requirements under the FTC and CFPB 
Rules. The FTC's assumed share of estimated PRA burden, explained in 
the June 25, 2013 Notice, is 974 hours and $243,750 in labor costs, 
with the added assumption that capital and other non-labor costs should 
be minimal, at most, since the Rule has been in effect several years, 
with covered entities now equipped to provide the required notice.

include competitively sensitive information such as costs, sales 
statistics, inventories, formulas, patterns, devices, manufacturing 
processes, or customer names.
    If you want the Commission to give your comment confidential 
treatment, you must file it in paper form, with a request for 
confidential treatment, and you have to follow the procedure explained 
in FTC Rule 4.9(c), 16 CFR 4.9(c).\2\ Your comment will be kept 
confidential only if the FTC General Counsel grants your request in 
accordance with the law and the public interest.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ In particular, the written request for confidential 
treatment that accompanies the comment must include the factual and 
legal basis for the request, and must identify the specific portions 
of the comment to be withheld from the public record. See FTC Rule 
4.9(c), 16 CFR 4.9(c).
