The Rule requires that such actions be promptly reported to the Commission. The Rule also requires that the reports and notices supply sufficient information regarding the background, factual basis and issues involved in the proceeding to enable the Commission: (1) To determine whether the matter should be called up for review on the Commission’s own motion; and (2) to ascertain generally whether the SRO has adequately carried out its responsibilities under the Exchange Act.

The staff estimates that the average number of hours necessary to comply with the requirements of Rule 19d–1 for each submission is 0.5 hours. The average cost per hour, per each submission is approximately $101. Therefore, the total cost of compliance for all the respondents is $118,675.

The filing of notices pursuant to the Rule is mandatory for the SROs, but does not involve the collection of confidential information.

Rule 19d–1 does not have a retention of records requirement.

Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: Securities and Exchange 
Commission, Office of Filings and Information Services, Washington, DC 
20549.

Extension:
    Rule 19d-1; SEC File No. 270-242; OMB Control No. 3235-0206.

    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'') intends to submit to the Office of Management and 
Budget request for extension of the previously approved collection of 
information discussed below.
     Rule 19d-1--Notices by Self-Regulatory Organizations of 
Final Disciplinary Actions, Denials Bars, or Limitations Respecting 
Membership, Association, or Access to Services, and Summary Suspensions
    Rule 19d-1 (17 CFR 240.19d-1) (``Rule'') under the Securities 
Exchange Act of 1934 (17 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) prescribes the form and 
content of notices to be filed with the Commission by self-regulatory 
organizations (``SROs'') for which the Commission is the appropriate 
regulatory agency concerning the following final SRO actions: (1) 
Disciplinary sanctions (including summary suspensions); (2) denials of 
membership, participation or association with a member; and (3) 
prohibitions or limitations on access to SRO services.
    The Rule enables the Commission to obtain reports from the SROs 
containing information regarding SRO determinations to discipline 
members or associated persons of members, deny membership or 
participation or association with a member, and similar adjudicated 
findings. The Rule requires that such actions be promptly reported to 
the Commission. The Rule also requires that the reports and notices 
supply sufficient information regarding the background, factual basis 
and issues involved in the proceeding to enable the Commission: (1) To 
determine whether the matter should be called up for review on the 
Commission's own motion; and (2) to ascertain generally whether the SRO 
has adequately carried out its responsibilities under the Exchange Act.
    It is estimated that 10 respondents will utilize this application 
procedure annually, with a total burden of 1175 hours, based on past 
submissions. This figure is based on 10 respondents, spending 
approximately 117.5 hours each. Each respondent submitted approximately 
235 responses. The staff estimates that the average number of hours 
necessary to comply with the requirements of Rule 19d-1 for each 
submission is 0.5 hours. The average cost per hour, per each submission 
is approximately $101. Therefore, the total cost of compliance for all 
the respondents is $118,675. (10 respondents x 235 responses per 
respondent x .5 hrs per response x $101 per hour).
    The filing of notices pursuant to the Rule is mandatory for the 
SROs, but does not involve the collection of confidential information. 
Please note that 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. Rule 19d-1 does not have a 
retention of records requirement.
    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 shall 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimates of 
the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be 
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. 
Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in 
writing within 60 days of this publication.
    Direct your written comments to R. Corey Booth, Director/Chief 
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
