Extension: Rule 7d–1; SEC File No. 270–176; OMB Control No. 3235–0311. Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the collections of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit these existing collections of information to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for extension and approval. Section 7(d) of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a– 7(d)) (the ‘‘Act’’ or ‘‘Investment Company Act’’) requires an investment company (‘‘fund’’) organized outside the PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 United States (‘‘foreign fund’’) to obtain an order from the Commission allowing the fund to register under the Act before making a public offering of its securities through the United States mail or any means of interstate commerce. The Commission may issue an order only if it finds that it is both legally and practically feasible effectively to enforce the provisions of the Act against the foreign fund, and that the registration of the fund is consistent with the public interest and protection of investors. Rule 7d–1 (17 CFR 270.7d–1) under the Act, which was adopted in 1954, specifies the conditions under which a Canadian management investment company (‘‘Canadian fund’’) may request an order from the Commission permitting it to register under the Act. Although rule 7d–1 by its terms applies only to Canadian funds, other foreign funds generally have agreed to comply with the requirements of rule 7d–1 as a prerequisite to receiving an order permitting those foreign funds’ registration under the Act. The rule requires a Canadian fund that wishes to register to file an application with the Commission that contains various undertakings and agreements by the fund. Certain of these undertakings and agreements, in turn, impose the following additional information collection requirements: (1) The fund must file agreements between the fund and its directors, officers, and service providers requiring them to comply with the fund’s charter and bylaws, the Act, and certain other obligations relating to the undertakings and agreements in the application; (2) the fund and each of its directors, officers, and investment advisers that is not a U.S. resident, must file an irrevocable designation of the fund’s custodian in the United States as agent for service of process; (3) the fund’s charter and bylaws must provide that (a) the fund will comply with certain provisions of the Act applicable to all funds, (b) the fund will maintain originals or copies of its books and records in the United States, and (c) the fund’s contracts with its custodian, investment adviser, and principal underwriter, will contain certain terms, including a requirement that the adviser maintain originals or copies of pertinent records in the United States; (4) the fund’s contracts with service providers will require that the provider perform the contract in accordance with the Act, the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a–77z–3), and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a–78mm), as applicable; and (5) the fund must file, and periodically revise, a list of persons affiliated with the fund or its adviser or underwriter. Under section 7(d) of the Act the Commission may issue an order permitting a foreign fund’s registration E:\FR\FM\26SEN1.SGM 26SEN1
