SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION
Proposed Collection; Comment Request
Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: Securities and Exchange
Commission, Office of Filings and Information Services, Washington, DC
Rule 19d-3, SEC File No. 270-245, OMB Control No. 3235-0204.
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 a request for extension of the previously approved collection of
information discussed below.
Rule 19d-3 (17 CFR 240.19d-3)--Applications for Review of
Final Disciplinary Sanctions, Denials of Membership, Participation or
Association, or Prohibitions or Limitations of Access to Services
Imposed by Self-Regulatory Organizations.
Rule 19d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (17 U.S.C. 78a
et seq.) prescribes the form and content of applications to the
Commission by persons desiring stays of final disciplinary sanctions
and summary action of self-regulatory organizations (``SROs'') for
which the Commission is the appropriate regulatory agency. The
Commission uses the information provided in the application filed
pursuant to Rule 19d-3 to review final actions taken by SROs including:
(1) Disciplinary sanctions; (2) denials of membership, participation or
association; and (3) prohibitions on or limitations of access to SRO
It is estimated that approximately 15 respondents will utilize this
application procedure annually, with a total burden of 270 hours, for
all respondents to complete all submissions. This figure is based upon
past submissions. The staff estimates that the average number of hours
necessary to comply with the requirements of Rule 19d-3 is 18 hours.
The average cost per hour, to complete each submission, is
approximately $101. Therefore, the total cost of compliance for all
respondents is $27,270. (15 submissions x 18 hours x $101 per hour).
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
60 days of this notice.
Dated: April 24, 2007.
