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 (the ‘‘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 for extension and approval. The title for the collection of information is ‘‘Rule 204A–1 (17 CFR 275.204A–1) under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940’’ (15 U.S.C. 80b– 1 et seq.). Rule 204A–1, the Code of Ethics Rule, requires investment advisers registered with the Commission to (i) set forth standards of conduct expected of advisory personnel (including compliance with the federal securities laws), (ii) safeguard material nonpublic information about client transactions, and (iii) requires the adviser’s ‘‘access persons’’ to report their personal securities transactions, including transactions in any mutual fund managed by the adviser. The code of ethics also requires access persons to obtain the adviser’s approval before investing in an initial public offering or private placement. The code of ethics also requires prompt reporting, to the adviser’s chief compliance officer or another person designated in the code of ethics, of any violations of the code. Finally, the code of ethics requires the adviser to provide each supervised person with a copy of the code and any amendments, and requires the supervised persons to acknowledge, in writing, their receipt of these copies. The purposes of the information collection requirements are: (i) To ensure that advisers maintain codes of ethics applicable to their supervised persons; (ii) to provide advisers with information about the personal securities transactions of their access persons for purposes of monitoring such transactions; (iii) to provide advisory clients with information with which to evaluate advisers’ codes of ethics; and (iv) to assist the Commission’s examination staff in assessing the adequacy of advisers’ codes of ethics and assessing personal trading activity by advisers’ supervised persons. The respondents to this information collection are investment advisers registered with the Commission. The Commission has estimated that compliance with rule 204A–1 imposes a burden of approximately 117 hours per adviser annually for an estimated total annual burden of 1,265,865 hours.
