Form F-3 under the Securities Act of 1933 is the short form registration statement used by foreign private issuers to register offerings of their securities.
The Commission initially estimated that the collection of information burden for Form F-3 would be imposed through the forms that are incorporated by reference into Form F-3. After further consideration of the amendments during the final rule stage, the Commission has determined that the collection burden for Form F-3 should be included in this form.

Changing Regulations
The amendments to the Regulation S-X financial disclosure requirements are applicable to registered debt offerings that include credit enhancements, such as subsidiary guarantees. The amendments are intended to both improve the quality of disclosure and increase the likelihood that issuers will conduct credit enhanced debt offerings on a registered basis. The amendments clarify, consolidate, relocate and eliminate some disclosures of the credit enhancement requirements. The amendments focus on material information regarding guarantees and other credit enhancements, and eliminate prescriptive requirements that have imposed unnecessary burdens and incentivized issuers of securities with guarantees and other credit enhancements to offer and sell those securities in unregistered offerings. All together, the Commission believes these effects will facilitate more registered offerings of guaranteed and collateralized debt securities, thereby affording investors protection they may not otherwise have had in debt offerings conducted in the private markets. For purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, the Commission estimates that the final amendments will result in one additional filing of Form F-3, as well as a net increase of 18 burden hours and a net increase of $21,000 in the cost burden of the form.
