Publication ID: Fall 2010

Title: Prohibited Transaction Exemption Procedures

Abstract: This rulemaking will amend and supersede the current rule of procedure that governs the filing and processing of applications for administrative exemptions from the prohibited transaction provisions of Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, and the Federal Employees’ Retirement System Act of 1986. This amendment will promote transparency and facilitate the efficient consideration of exemption applications by providing plan participants with a clearer understanding of the exemption under consideration, by clarifying the types of information and documentation generally required for a complete filing, and by affording expanded opportunities for the electronic submission of information and comments relating to an exemption application. In August 2010, an NPRM was published for this item under RIN 1210-AA98 (75 FR 53172).
