29 CFR 4043.3 - Requirement of notice.

§ 4043.3 Requirement of notice.
(a) Obligation to file—
(1) In general. Each person that is required to file a notice under this part, or a duly authorized representative, shall submit the information required by this part by the time specified in § 4043.20 (for post-event notice), § 4043.61 (for advance notice), or § 4043.81 (for Form 200 filings). Any information previously filed with the PBGC may be incorporated by reference.
(2) Multiple plans. If a reportable event occurs for more than one plan, the filing obligation with respect to each plan is independent of the filing obligation with respect to any other plan.
(3) Optional consolidated filing. A filing by any person will be deemed to be a filing by all persons required to notify the PBGC under this part. If notices are required for two or more events, the notices may be combined in one filing.
(b) Contents of reportable event notice. A person required to file a reportable event notice shall provide, by the notice date, the following general information, along with any other information required for each reportable event under subpart B or C of this part:
(1) The name of the plan;
(2) The name, address, and telephone number of the contributing sponsor(s) and of an individual that should be contacted;
(3) The name, address, and telephone number of the plan administrator and of an individual that should be contacted;
(4) The EIN of the contributing sponsor and the EIN/PN of the plan;
(5) A brief statement of the pertinent facts relating to the reportable event;
(6) A copy of the plan document in effect, i.e., the last restatement of the plan and all amendments thereto;
(7) A copy of the most recent actuarial statement and opinion (if any) relating to the plan; and
(8) A statement of any material change in the assets or liabilities of the plan occurring after the date of the most recent actuarial statement and opinion.
(c) Optional reportable event forms. The PBGC shall issue optional reportable events forms, which may provide for reduced initial information submissions.
(d) Requests for additional information. The PBGC may, in any case, require the submission of additional information. Any such information shall be submitted for subpart B of this part within 30 days, and for subpart C or D of this part within 7 days, after the date of a written request by the PBGC, or within a different time period specified therein. The PBGC may in its discretion shorten the time period where it determines that the interests of the PBGC or participants may be prejudiced by a delay in receipt of the information.
(e) Effect of failure to file. If a notice (or any other information required under this part) is not provided within the specified time limit, the PBGC may assess against each person required to provide the notice a separate penalty under section 4071 of ERISA of up to $1,100 a day for each day that the failure continues. The PBGC may pursue any other equitable or legal remedies available to it under the law.
