The Commission uses the information provided in the submissions filed pursuant to Rule 19h–1 to review decisions by SROs to permit the entry into or continuance in the securities business of persons who have committed serious misconduct. The filings submitted pursuant to the Rule also permit inclusion of an application to the Commission for consent to associate with a member of an SRO notwithstanding a Commission order barring such association. The Commission reviews filings made pursuant to the Rule to ascertain whether it is in the public interest to permit the employment in the securities business of persons subject to statutory disqualification.

Extension: Rule 6a–4; SEC File No. 270–496; OMB Control No. 3235–0554. Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995,1 the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. Section 6 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 2 sets out a framework for the registration and regulation of national securities exchanges. Under the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000, a futures market may trade security futures products by registering as a national securities exchange. Rule 6a– 4 3 sets forth these registration procedures and directs futures markets to submit a notice registration on Form 1–N. Form 1–N calls for information regarding how the futures market operates, its rules and procedures, its criteria for membership, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and the security futures products it intends to trade. Rule 6a–4 also would require entities that have submitted an initial Form 1–N to file: (1) Amendments to Form 1–N in the event of material changes to the information provided in the initial Form 1–N; (2) periodic updates of certain information provided in the initial Form 1–N; (3) certain information that is provided to the futures market’s members; and (4) a monthly report summarizing the futures market’s trading of security futures products. The information required to be filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 6a–4 is designed to enable the Commission to carry out its statutorily PO 00000 mandated oversight functions and to ensure that registered and exempt exchanges continue to be in compliance with the Act. The respondents to the collection of information are futures markets. The Commission estimates that the total annual burden for all respondents to provide the amendments and periodic updates under Rule 6a–4 would be 105 hours (15 hours/ respondent per year x seven respondents) and $10,066 ($1438/ response × seven responses/year). The Commission estimates that the total annual burden for the filing of the supplemental information and the monthly reports required under Rule 6a–4 would be 87.5 hours (25 filings/ respondent × seven respondents x 0.5 hours/response). The SEC estimates that the total annual cost for all supplemental filings would be $3675 (25 filings/respondent per year × 7 respondents × $21/response). 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 should be directed to (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.
