The agenda for the subject meeting shall be as follows: Jkt 211001 Extension: Rule 248.30; SEC File No. 270– 549; OMB Control No. 3235–0610. 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’’) plans to submit to the PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information for rule 248.30 under Regulation S-P (17 CFR 248.30), titled ‘‘Procedures to Safeguard Customer Records and Information; Disposal of Consumer Report Information.’’ Rule 248.30 (the ‘‘safeguard rule’’) requires brokers, dealers, investment companies, and investment advisers registered with the Commission (‘‘registered investment advisers’’) (collectively ‘‘covered institutions’’) to adopt written policies and procedures for administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect customer records and information. The safeguards must be reasonably designed to ‘‘insure the security and confidentiality of customer records and information,’’ ‘‘protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security and integrity’’ of those records, and protect against unauthorized access to or use of those records or information, which ‘‘could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any customer.’’ The safeguard rule’s requirement that covered institutions’ policies and procedures be documented in writing constitutes a collection of information and must be maintained on an ongoing basis. This requirement eliminates uncertainty as to required employee actions to protect customer records and information and promotes more systematic and organized reviews of safeguard policies and procedures by institutions. The information collection also assists the Commission’s examination staff in assessing the existence and adequacy of covered institutions’ safeguard policies and procedures. The Commission staff estimates that approximately 449 new entities are subject to the requirements of the safeguard rule’s documentation requirement each year. Of these, we estimate that 389 will be small entities, and that on average a small entity will spend an average of 15 hours to develop and document its safeguard policies and procedures. The Commission staff therefore estimates a one-time hour burden for these new, smaller entities of 5,835 hours. We estimate that 60 additional large institutions will be subject to the rule, and that on average each new large institution will spend 715 hours to develop and document their safeguard policies and procedures, for a one-time burden of 42,900 hours. Thus, we estimate a one-time hour burden for new entities of 48,735 hours per year. The Commission staff also estimates that 2,080 institutions review and E:\FR\FM\06JNN1.SGM 06JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 108 / Wednesday, June 6, 2007 / Notices jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES update their policies and procedures under the rule each year. We estimate that 815 of these institutions are smaller entities that spend an average of 6 hours reviewing and updating their policies and procedures once per year, or 4,890 hours annually. We estimate that an additional 1,265 larger institutions spend an average of 30 hours to review and update their safeguard policies and procedures, or 37,950 hours each year. Accordingly, we estimate that the annual burden for covered institutions that review and update their safeguard policies and procedures is 42,840 hours. We therefore estimate a total of 2,529 respondents and an annual burden of 91,575 hours associated with the rule’s collection of information requirement. These estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction 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. The safeguard rule does not require the reporting of any information or the filing of any documents with the Commission. The collection of information required by the safeguard rule is mandatory. 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 of 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. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. Please direct your written comments to R.

Extension: Form F–6; OMB Control No. 3235–0292; SEC File No. 270–270. 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 this request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. The Commission exercised its authority under Section 19 of the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) to establish Form F–6 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). The information provided on Form F– 6 is mandatory to best ensure full disclosure of ADRs being issued in the U.S. All information provided to the Commission is available for public review upon request. 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. Written comments regarding the above information should be directed to the following persons: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or send an e- PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31355 mail to David_Rostker@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) R.

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 
20549.

Extension: Rule 248.30; SEC File No. 270-549; OMB Control No. 3235-
0610.

    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'') plans to submit to the Office of Management and Budget 
(``OMB'') a request for extension of the previously approved collection 
of information for rule 248.30 under Regulation S-P (17 CFR 248.30), 
titled ``Procedures to Safeguard Customer Records and Information; 
Disposal of Consumer Report Information.''
    Rule 248.30 (the ``safeguard rule'') requires brokers, dealers, 
investment companies, and investment advisers registered with the 
Commission (``registered investment advisers'') (collectively ``covered 
institutions'') to adopt written policies and procedures for 
administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect customer 
records and information. The safeguards must be reasonably designed to 
``insure the security and confidentiality of customer records and 
information,'' ``protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to 
the security and integrity'' of those records, and protect against 
unauthorized access to or use of those records or information, which 
``could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any customer.'' 
The safeguard rule's requirement that covered institutions' policies 
and procedures be documented in writing constitutes a collection of 
information and must be maintained on an ongoing basis. This 
requirement eliminates uncertainty as to required employee actions to 
protect customer records and information and promotes more systematic 
and organized reviews of safeguard policies and procedures by 
institutions. The information collection also assists the Commission's 
examination staff in assessing the existence and adequacy of covered 
institutions' safeguard policies and procedures.
    The Commission staff estimates that approximately 449 new entities 
are subject to the requirements of the safeguard rule's documentation 
requirement each year. Of these, we estimate that 389 will be small 
entities, and that on average a small entity will spend an average of 
15 hours to develop and document its safeguard policies and procedures. 
The Commission staff therefore estimates a one-time hour burden for 
these new, smaller entities of 5,835 hours. We estimate that 60 
additional large institutions will be subject to the rule, and that on 
average each new large institution will spend 715 hours to develop and 
document their safeguard policies and procedures, for a one-time burden 
of 42,900 hours. Thus, we estimate a one-time hour burden for new 
entities of 48,735 hours per year.
    The Commission staff also estimates that 2,080 institutions review 
and

[[Page 31355]]

update their policies and procedures under the rule each year. We 
estimate that 815 of these institutions are smaller entities that spend 
an average of 6 hours reviewing and updating their policies and 
procedures once per year, or 4,890 hours annually. We estimate that an 
additional 1,265 larger institutions spend an average of 30 hours to 
review and update their safeguard policies and procedures, or 37,950 
hours each year. Accordingly, we estimate that the annual burden for 
covered institutions that review and update their safeguard policies 
and procedures is 42,840 hours. We therefore estimate a total of 2,529 
respondents and an annual burden of 91,575 hours associated with the 
rule's collection of information requirement.
    These estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the 
purposes of the Paperwork Reduction 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. The 
safeguard rule does not require the reporting of any information or the 
filing of any documents with the Commission. The collection of 
information required by the safeguard rule is mandatory.
    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 of 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. Consideration will 
be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 
days of this publication.
