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
