Section 31 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78ee) requires the Commission to collect fees and assessments from national securities exchanges and national securities associations (collectively, ‘‘selfregulatory organizations’’ or ‘‘SROs’’) based on the volume of their securities transactions. To collect the proper amounts, the Commission adopted Rule 31 (17 CFR 240.31) and Form R31 (17 CFR 240.11) under the Exchange Act whereby the SROs must report to the Commission the volume of their securities transaction and the Commission, based on that data, calculates the amount of fees and assessments that the SROs owe pursuant to Section 31. Rule 31 and Form R31 require the SROs to provide this data on a monthly basis. The Commission estimates that each respondent makes approximately 12 such filings on an annual basis at an average hourly burden of approximately 1.6 hours per response. Currently, 15 respondents (14 national securities exchanges and one national securities association) are subject to the collection of information requirements of Rule 31. The Commission estimates that the total burden for all respondents is 288 hours (12 filings/respondent per year × 1.6 hours/filing × 15 respondents) per year. 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. 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 by sending an e-mail to: David_Rostker@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) R.

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 (‘‘OMB’’) a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. The title for the collection of information is ‘‘Form N–CSR (17 CFR 249.331 and 17 CFR 274.128) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (‘‘Securities Exchange Act’’) and under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) (‘‘Investment Company Act’’), Certified Shareholder Report of Registered Management Investment Companies.’’ Form N–CSR is a combined reporting form used by management investment companies to file certified shareholder reports under the Investment Company Act and under the Securities Exhange Act. Form N– CSR is to be used for reports under section 30(b)(2) of the Investment Company Act and section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act, filed pursuant to rule 30b2–1(a) under the Investment Company Act (17 CFR 270.30b2–1(a)). Form N–CSR reports are to be filed with the Commission not later than 10 days after the transmission to stockholders of any report that is required to be transmitted to stockholders under rule 30e–1 under the Investment Company Act (17 CFR 270.30e–1). The information provided on Form N–CSR may be used by the Commission in its regulatory, disclosure review, inspection, and policymaking roles. The information filed with the Commission also permits the verification of compliance with E:\ERIC\11JNN1.SGM 11JNN1 32148 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 111 / Monday, June 11, 2007 / Notices securities law requirements and assures the public availability and dissemination of the information. The Commission estimates that there are 7,300 reports filed on Form N–CSR annually and that the average number of portfolios referenced in each filing is 2.5. The Commission further estimates that the hour burden for preparing and filing a report on Form N–CSR is 7.57 hours per portfolio. Given that filings on Form N–CSR are filed semi-annually, filings on Form N–CSR require 15.14 hours per portfolio each year. The total annual hour burden for Form N–CSR, therefore, is estimated to be 138,153 hours. The information collection requirements imposed by Form N–CSR are mandatory. Responses to the collection of information will not be kept 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.

Form S–8 (17 CFR 239.16b) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) is the primary registration statement used by qualified registrants to register securities issuers in connection with employee benefit plans. Form S–8 provides verification of compliance with securities law requirements and assures the public availability and dissemination of such information. The likely respondents will be companies. The information must be filed with the Commission on occasion. Form S–8 is a public document. All information provided is mandatory. We estimate that 50% of the 24 hours per response (12 hours per response) is prepared by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 46,164 hours (12 hours per response × 3,847 responses).

Rule 155 (17 CFR 230.155) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) provides safe harbors for a registered offering following an abandoned private offering, or a private offering following an abandoned registered offering, without integrating the registered and private offerings in either case. Rule 155 requires any prospectus filed as a part of a registration statement after a private offering to include disclosure regarding abandonment of the private offering. Similarly, the rule requires an issuer to provide each offeree in a private offering following an abandoned registered offering with: (1) Information concerning withdrawal of the registration statement; (2) the fact that the private offering is unregistered; and (3) the legal implications of the offering’s unregistered status. The likely respondents will be companies. All information submitted to the Commission is available to the public for review. Companies only need to satisfy the Rule 155 information requirements if they wish to take advantage of the rule’s safe harbors. The Rule 155 information is required only on occasion. Rule 155 takes approximately 4 hours per response to prepare and is filed by 600 respondents. We estimate that 50% of the 4 hours per response (2 hours per response) is prepared by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 1,200 hours (2 hours per response × 600 responses). Rule 477 (17 CFR 230.477) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) sets forth procedures for withdrawing a registration statement or any amendment or exhibits thereto. The rule provides that if a registrant applies for withdrawal in anticipation of reliance on Rule 155’s registered-toprivate safe harbor, the registrant must state in the withdrawal application that the registrant plans to undertake a subsequent private offering in reliance on the rule. Without this statement, the Commission would not be able to monitor issuers’ reliance on, and compliance with, Rule 155(c). The likely respondents will be companies. All information submitted to the Commission under Rule 477 is available E:\ERIC\11JNN1.SGM 11JNN1

    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 
(``OMB'') a request for extension of the previously approved collection 
of information discussed below.
    The title for the collection of information is ``Form N-CSR (17 CFR 
249.331 and 17 CFR 274.128) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (``Securities Exchange Act'') and under the 
Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1 et seq.) (``Investment 
Company Act''), Certified Shareholder Report of Registered Management 
Investment Companies.'' Form N-CSR is a combined reporting form used by 
management investment companies to file certified shareholder reports 
under the Investment Company Act and under the Securities Exhange Act. 
Form N-CSR is to be used for reports under section 30(b)(2) of the 
Investment Company Act and section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities 
Exchange Act, filed pursuant to rule 30b2-1(a) under the Investment 
Company Act (17 CFR 270.30b2-1(a)). Form N-CSR reports are to be filed 
with the Commission not later than 10 days after the transmission to 
stockholders of any report that is required to be transmitted to 
stockholders under rule 30e-1 under the Investment Company Act (17 CFR 
270.30e-1). The information provided on Form N-CSR may be used by the 
Commission in its regulatory, disclosure review, inspection, and 
policymaking roles. The information filed with the Commission also

dissemination of the information.
    The Commission estimates that there are 7,300 reports filed on Form 
N-CSR annually and that the average number of portfolios referenced in 
each filing is 2.5. The Commission further estimates that the hour 
burden for preparing and filing a report on Form N-CSR is 7.57 hours 
per portfolio. Given that filings on Form N-CSR are filed semi-
annually, filings on Form N-CSR require 15.14 hours per portfolio each 
year. The total annual hour burden for Form N-CSR, therefore, is 
estimated to be 138,153 hours.
    The information collection requirements imposed by Form N-CSR are 
mandatory. Responses to the collection of information will not be kept 
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.
    General 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

30 days of this notice.
