The Department of Commerce, in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed, and continuing information collections, which helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. The purpose of this notice is to allow for 60 days of public comment preceding submission of the collection to OMB.

To ensure consideration, comments regarding this proposed information collection must be received on or before December 22, 2020.

Client Impact:

For Q4 2020 Reporting – once approved, the proposed changes to the BE–605 survey form are relatively minor and aim to clarify when changes in ownership are made.
