Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 40557 [E6-11231]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 136 / Monday, July 17, 2006 / Notices rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES records maintained under Rule 17a–1, if they have filed a record destruction plan with the Commission and the Commission has declared such plan effective. There are currently 22 SROs: 10 national securities exchanges, 1 national securities association, 10 registered clearing agencies, and the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board. These respondents file no more than one record destruction plan per year, which requires approximately 160 hours for each new plan. However, the Commission is discounting that figure given its experience to date with the number of plans that have been filed. Further, any existing SRO record destructions plan may require revision, over time, in response to, for example, changes in document retention technology, which the Commission estimates will take much less than the 160 hours estimated for a new plan. Thus, the total annual compliance burden is estimated to be 60 hours, based on an estimated two respondents per year. The approximate cost per hour is $250, resulting in a total cost of compliance for these respondents of $15,000 per year (60 hours @ $250 per hour). An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. General comments regarding the estimated burden hours should be directed to the following persons: (i) The Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or by sending an e-mail to David_Rostker@omb.eop.gov and (ii) R. Corey Booth, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Shirley Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, VA 22312 or by sending an e-mail to PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov.
