“The proposed exemption procedure retains the section-by-section topical structure of the existing regulation,” EBSA explained.

The proposed changes include the following:

  • Requiring applicants to provide interested persons with a brief objective summary of complex transactions;
  • Consolidating exemption policies and guidance within a single document;
  • Updating the description of the department’s authority to propose and issue administrative exemptions on its own motion;
  • Adding a description of the current standards for obtaining retroactive exemption relief; and
  • Clarifying the content of specialized statements, as needed, from qualified independent appraisers and other relevant experts.

The proposed regulation was published in the Federal Register on August 30, 2010.
