Rule 206(3)–2, (17 CFR 275.206(3)–2) which is entitled ‘‘Agency Cross Transactions for Advisory Clients,’’ permits investment advisers to comply with section 206(3) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (the ‘‘Act’’) (15 U.S.C. 80b–6(3)) by obtaining a client’s blanket consent to enter into agency cross transactions (i.e., a transaction in which an adviser acts as a broker to both the advisory client and the opposite party to the transaction). Rule 206(3)–2 applies to all registered investment advisers. In relying on the rule, investment advisers must provide certain disclosures to their clients. Advisory clients can use the disclosures to monitor agency cross transactions that affect their advisory account. The Commission also uses the information required by Rule 206(3)–2 in connection with its investment adviser inspection program to ensure that advisers are in compliance with the rule. Without the information collected under the rule, advisory clients would not have information necessary for monitoring their adviser’s handling of their accounts and the Commission would be less efficient and effective in its inspection program. The information requirements of the rule consist of the following: (1) Prior to obtaining the client’s consent, appropriate disclosure must be made to the client as to the practice of, and the conflicts of interest involved in, agency cross transactions; (2) at or before the completion of any such transaction, the client must be furnished with a written confirmation containing specified information and offering to furnish upon request certain additional information; and (3) at least annually, the client must be furnished with a written statement or summary as to the total number of transactions during the period covered by the consent and the total amount of commissions received by the adviser or its affiliated brokerdealer attributable to such transactions. The Commission estimates that approximately 693 respondents use the rule annually, necessitating about 32 responses per respondent each year, for a total of 22,176 responses. Each response requires an estimated 0.5 hours, for a total of 11,088 hours. The estimated average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:07 Dec 18, 2006 Jkt 211001 Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or representative survey or study of the cost of Commission rules and forms. This collection of information is found at (17 CFR 275.206(3)–2) and is necessary in order for the investment adviser to obtain the benefits of Rule 206(3)–2. The collection of information requirements under the rule is mandatory. Information subject to the disclosure requirements of Rule 206(3)– 2 does not require submission to the Commission; and, accordingly, the disclosure pursuant to the rule is not kept confidential. Commission-registered investment advisers are required to maintain and preserve certain information required under Rule 206(3)–2 for five (5) years. The long-term retention of these records is necessary for the Commission’s inspection program to ascertain compliance with the Advisers Act. 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 above information should be directed to the following persons: (1) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10202, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or e-mail to: David_Rostker@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) R.

Section 30(e) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a– 29(e)) (the ‘‘Investment Company Act’’ or ‘‘Act’’) and Rule 30e–2 1 thereunder (17 CFR 270.30e–2) require registered unit investment trusts (‘‘UITs’’) that invest substantially all of their assets in securities of a management investment company 2 (‘‘fund’’) to send to shareholders at least semi-annually a report containing certain financial statements and other information. Specifically, Rule 30e–2 requires that the report contain the financial statements and other information that Rule 30e–1 under the Act (17 CFR 270.30e–1) requires to be included in the report of the underlying fund for the same fiscal period. Rule 30e–1 requires that the underlying fund’s report contain, among other things, the financial statements and other information that is required to be included in such report by the fund’s registration form. The purpose of this requirement is to apprise current shareholders of the operational and financial condition of the UIT. Absent the requirement to disclose all material information in reports, investors would be unable to obtain accurate information upon which to base investment decisions and consumer confidence in the securities industry might be adversely affected. Requiring the submission of these reports to the Commission permits us to verify compliance with securities law requirements. In addition, Rule 30e–2 permits, under certain conditions, delivery of a single shareholder report to investors who share an address (‘‘householding’’). Specifically, Rule 30e–2 permits householding of annual and semi-annual reports by UITs to satisfy the delivery requirements of Rule 30e–2 if, in addition to the other conditions set forth in the rule, the UIT 1 Rule 30e–2 was originally adopted as Rule 30d– 2, but was redesignated as Rule 30e–2 effective February 15, 2001.

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION


Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

Upon written request, copies available from: Securities and Exchange 
Commission Office of Filings and Information Services, Washington, DC 
20549.

Extension: Rule 206(3)-2; SEC File No. 270-216; OMB Control No. 
3235-0243.


[[Page 76004]]


    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of Management 
and Budget (``OMB'') a request for extension of the previously approved 
collection of information discussed below.
    Rule 206(3)-2, (17 CFR 275.206(3)-2) which is entitled ``Agency 
Cross Transactions for Advisory Clients,'' permits investment advisers 
to comply with section 206(3) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 
(the ``Act'') (15 U.S.C. 80b-6(3)) by obtaining a client's blanket 
consent to enter into agency cross transactions (i.e., a transaction in 
which an adviser acts as a broker to both the advisory client and the 
opposite party to the transaction). Rule 206(3)-2 applies to all 
registered investment advisers. In relying on the rule, investment 
advisers must provide certain disclosures to their clients. Advisory 
clients can use the disclosures to monitor agency cross transactions 
that affect their advisory account. The Commission also uses the 
information required by Rule 206(3)-2 in connection with its investment 
adviser inspection program to ensure that advisers are in compliance 
with the rule. Without the information collected under the rule, 
advisory clients would not have information necessary for monitoring 
their adviser's handling of their accounts and the Commission would be 
less efficient and effective in its inspection program.
    The information requirements of the rule consist of the following: 
(1) Prior to obtaining the client's consent, appropriate disclosure 
must be made to the client as to the practice of, and the conflicts of 
interest involved in, agency cross transactions; (2) at or before the 
completion of any such transaction, the client must be furnished with a 
written confirmation containing specified information and offering to 
furnish upon request certain additional information; and (3) at least 
annually, the client must be furnished with a written statement or 
summary as to the total number of transactions during the period 
covered by the consent and the total amount of commissions received by 
the adviser or its affiliated broker-dealer attributable to such 
transactions.
    The Commission estimates that approximately 693 respondents use the 
rule annually, necessitating about 32 responses per respondent each 
year, for a total of 22,176 responses. Each response requires an 
estimated 0.5 hours, for a total of 11,088 hours. The estimated average 
burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork 
Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or 
representative survey or study of the cost of Commission rules and 
forms.
    This collection of information is found at (17 CFR 275.206(3)-2) 
and is necessary in order for the investment adviser to obtain the 
benefits of Rule 206(3)-2. The collection of information requirements 
under the rule is mandatory. Information subject to the disclosure 
requirements of Rule 206(3)-2 does not require submission to the 
Commission; and, accordingly, the disclosure pursuant to the rule is 
not kept confidential.
    Commission-registered investment advisers are required to maintain 
and preserve certain information required under Rule 206(3)-2 for five 
(5) years. The long-term retention of these records is necessary for 
the Commission's inspection program to ascertain compliance with the 
Advisers Act.
    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 above information should be directed 
to the following persons: (1) Desk Officer for the Securities and 
Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, 
Office of Management and Budget, Room 10202, New Executive Office 
Building, Washington, DC 20503 or e-mail to: David--

Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, C/O Shirley 
Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, VA, 22312; or send an e-
mail to: PRA--Mailbox@sec.gov. Comments must be submitted to OMB within
