RRB Regulations pertaining to the collection of evidence relating to public service pensions or worker’s compensation paid to spouse or survivor applicants or annuitants are found in 20 CFR 219.64c. The RRB utilizes Form G–208, Public Service Pension Questionnaire, and Form G–212, Public Service Monitoring Questionnaire, to obtain information used to determine whether an annuity reduction is in order. The RRB proposes no changes to Form G–208. Non-burden impacting editorial and formatting changes are proposed to Form G–212. Completion of the forms is voluntary. However, failure to complete the forms could result in the nonpayment of benefits. One response is requested of each respondent. The completion time for the G–208 is estimated at 16 minutes and the G–212 is estimated at 15 minutes. The RRB estimates that approximately 70 Form G–208’s and 1,100 Form G–212’s are completed annually.

The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for approval. The Commission under Section 19 of the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) established Form F–6 (17 CFR 239.36) for registration of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) of foreign companies. Form F–6 requires disclosure of information regarding the terms of the depository bank, fees charged, and a description of the ADRs. No special information regarding the foreign company is required to be prepared or disclosed, although the foreign company must be one which periodically furnishes information to the Commission. The information is needed to ensure that investors in ADRs have full disclosure of information concerning the deposit agreement and the foreign company. Form F–6 takes approximately 1 hour per response to prepare and is filed by 150 respondents annually. We estimate that 25% of the 1 hour per response (.25 hours) is prepared by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 37.5 hours (.25 hours per response × 150 responses). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden imposed by the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Pursuant to Sections 17(d) 1 and 11A(a)(3)(B) 2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is hereby providing notice of filing and issuing an order granting approval and declaring effective a revised plan for the allocation of regulatory responsibilities dated February 9, 2007 (‘‘Revised Plan’’) that was filed pursuant to Rule 17d–2 under the Act3 by NYSE Arca, Inc. (‘‘NYSE Arca’’) and the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (‘‘NASD’’) (together with the NYSE Arca, the ‘‘Parties’’). The Revised Plan replaces and supersedes the agreement entered into between the Parties on July 25, 2006 (‘‘July 2006 Plan’’)4 in its entirety. The Revised Plan, which makes minor changes to the July 2006 Plan, does not fundamentally alter the allocation of regulatory responsibilities between the Parties.5 Accordingly, in addition to the regulatory responsibility it has under the Act, NASD shall retain the regulatory responsibilities allocated to it under the Revised Plan. At the same time, NYSE Arca continues to be relieved of those regulatory responsibilities allocated to NASD under the Revised Plan. I. Introduction Section 19(g)(1) of the Act,6 among other things, requires every selfregulatory organization (‘‘SRO’’) registered as either a national securities exchange or registered securities association to examine for, and enforce compliance by, its members and persons associated with its members with the Act, the rules and regulations thereunder, and the SRO’s own rules, unless the SRO is relieved of this 1 15 U.S.C. 78q(d).
