Appendix F requires a broker-dealer choosing to register, upon Commission approval, as an OTC derivatives dealer to develop and maintain an internal risk management system based on Value-atRisk (‘‘VaR’’) models. Appendix F also requires the OTC derivatives dealer to notify Commission staff of the system and of certain other periodic information including when the VaR model deviates from the actual performance of the OTC derivatives dealer’s portfolio. It is anticipated that five (5) broker-dealers will spend 1,000 hours per year complying with Rule 15c3–1f. The total burden is estimated to be approximately 5,000 hours. The records required to be kept pursuant to Appendix F and results of periodic reviews conducted pursuant to Rule 15c3–4 generally must be preserved under Rule 17a–4 of the Exchange Act (17 CFR 240.17a–4) for a period of not less than three years, the first two years in an easily accessible place. The Commission will not generally publish or make available to any person notice or reports received pursuant to the Rule. The statutory basis for the Commission’s refusal to disclose such information to the public is the exemption contained in Section (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552, which essentially provides that the requirement of public dissemination does not apply to commercial or financial information which is privileged or confidential. 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.
