for the purchase of PSC. It seems improbable that DEA would have issued the registration and quota if it had concerns about Chattem’s technology for processing NRMs. The Deputy Administrator therefore finds that the evidence showed that Chattem possesses sufficient technology to process NRMs with efficiency. Accordingly, the Deputy Administrator concludes that this factor weighs in favor of granting Chattem’s application. 7. Such Other Factors as May Be Relevant to and Consistent With the Public Health And Safety The Deputy Administrator agrees with the ALJ’s finding that there are no factors that might be relevant to and consistent with the public health and safety other than those discussed above. C. Exceptions All of the Objectors filed exceptions to the ALJ Opinion. Chattem responded to those exceptions. Having considered the record in its entirety, including the parties’ exceptions and responses, the Deputy Administrator finds no merit in any of the exceptions, most of which concerned matters that were addressed at length at the hearing. The exceptions were extensive and are part of the record. Only one of the exceptions merits further discussion, and the remainder will not be restated herein. In its exceptions, Mallinckrodt argued that conditions should be placed upon Chattem’s registration, requiring Chattem to provide DEA with plans for a new facility capable of processing both opium and PSC and providing DEA with plans and a time table for upgrading and expanding its controlled substances facilities and equipment to meet Chattem’s needs. The Deputy Administrator finds no need for such conditions. The evidence showed that while Chattem has potential plans to build a larger facility if warranted by its future sales, it currently has sufficient facilities to process both opium and PSC. IV. Conclusion Based upon the foregoing, the Deputy Administrator finds that Chattem has met its burden of proof to show that it is in the public interest, as defined by 21 U.S.C. 823(a) and 21 CFR 1301.34(b), to grant its application to be registered as an importer of NRMs. This decision is effective March 29, 2006.
Dated: February 17, 2006. Michele M. Leonhart, Deputy Administrator. [FR Doc. E6–2696 Filed 2–24–06; 8:45 am]

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Employee Benefits Security Administration Proposed Extension of Information Collection; Comment Request; ERISA Summary Annual Report Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor. ACTION: Notice.
AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of Labor (the Department), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA 95). This program helps to ensure that the data the Department gathers can be provided in the desired format, the reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, the public clearly understands the Department’s collection instruments, and the Department can accurately assess the impact of collection requirements on respondents. Currently, the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) is soliciting comments concerning an extension of the information collections in the regulation implementing the requirement under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) that administrators of employee benefit plans annually furnish participants and certain beneficiaries a statement that fairly summarizes the plan’s latest annual report. A copy of the information collection request (ICR) may be obtained by contacting the office listed in the ADDRESSES section of this notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office shown in the ADDRESSES section on or before April 28, 2006. ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments regarding the information collection request and burden estimates to Susan G. Lahne, Office of Policy and Research, Employee Benefits Security Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Room N–5718, Washington, DC 20210. Telephone: (202) 693–8410, FAX (202) 219–4333. These are not toll-free numbers. Comments may also be submitted electronically to the following Internet e-mail address: ebsa.opr@dol.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background Section 104(b)(3) of ERISA and the regulation published at 29 CFR 2520.104b–10 require, with certain exceptions, that administrators of employee benefit plans furnish annually to each participant and certain beneficiaries a summary annual report (SAR) meeting the requirements of the statute and regulation. The regulation prescribes the content and format of the SAR and the timing of its delivery. The SAR provides current information about the plan and assists those who receive it in understanding the plan’s current financial operation and condition. It also explains participants’ and beneficiaries’ rights to receive further information on these issues. EBSA previously submitted the information collection provisions in the regulation at 29 CFR 2520.104b–10 to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review in an information collection request (ICR). OMB approved the ICR under OMB Control No. 1210– 0040. The ICR approval is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2006. II. Desired Focus of Comments The Department is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Evaluate whether and to what extent the proposed collection of information minimizes the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., by permitting electronic submissions of responses. III. Current Action This notice requests comments on an extension of the information collections in the ERISA Summary Annual Report regulation. After considering comments received in response to this notice, the Department intends to submit the ICR to OMB for continuing approval. No change to the existing ICR is being proposed or made at this time. A
