(5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time needed for an average respondent to respond to both forms: 51 respondents each taking an average 8.0 total hours to VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:57 Dec 05, 2007 Jkt 214001 respond (1.5 hours for the NPS–1A and 6.5 hours for the NPS–1B). Burden hours are up by 255 hours under this clearance because we are adding the elements from the NPS–1 form (approved under OMB number 1121– 0078), with 51 respondents each taking an estimated 6 hours to complete. However, we are also eliminating the previous NPS–1B form due to redundancy, 51 respondents at 1.5 hours each, thus reducing the overall burden of the NPS series by 76.5 hours. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: 408 annual burden hours.

[FR Doc. 07–5976 Filed 12–4–07; 2:25 pm] BILLING CODE 7710–FW–M SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, Washington, DC 20549–0213. Extension: NAR Exemptive Request; OMB Control No. 3235–XXXX; SEC File No. 270–573. 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 pre-approval of an exemptive request by the National Association of Realtors (‘‘NAR’’) pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (‘‘Exchange Act’’). mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Background NAR has requested an exemption pursuant to Sections 15(a)(2) and 36(a) of the Exchange Act from the brokerdealer registration requirements of Section 15(a)(1) and the reporting and other requirements of the Exchange Act (other than Sections 15(b)(4) and 15(b)(6)), and the rules and regulations thereunder, that apply to a broker or dealer that is not registered with the Commission. Subject to the conditions specified in NAR’s application (‘‘Application’’), the requested exemption would allow any licensed real estate agent or broker who is predominantly engaged in and has substantial experience in the sale of commercial real estate (‘‘Commercial Real Estate Professional’’) and the real estate brokerage firm with which he or she is licensed (‘‘Real Estate Firm’’) (collectively, a ‘‘RE Participant’’) to receive a real estate advisory fee (‘‘Real Estate Advisory Fee’’) from a purchaser of an undivided tenant-in-common interest in real property (‘‘TIC Interest’’) that is offered and sold together with other arrangements that cause it to be deemed to be a security under the federal securities laws (‘‘TIC Security’’). Under NAR’s exemptive request, a Real Estate Advisory Fee could be paid by the purchaser directly or on behalf of VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:57 Dec 05, 2007 Jkt 214001 the purchaser by the sponsor or issuer of the TIC Security, which could, thereby, reduce the commission or other compensation received by a registered broker-dealer involved in the TIC Security transaction. The Real Estate Advisory Fee generally would be paid to the Real Estate Firm with which the Commercial Real Estate Professional is licensed. The Firm would distribute all or a previously agreed upon percentage of the Real Estate Advisory Fee to the Commercial Real Estate Professional that signed a buyer’s agent agreement with the client and to any other Commercial Real Estate Professional or Real Estate Firm that was added to the agreement with the consent of the client. Proposed Collections of Information The requested exemption would contain five collections of information. First, the requested exemption would require a RE Participant to deliver a copy of the executed buyer’s agent agreement to the registered brokerdealer acting as a placement agent (‘‘Lead Placement Agent’’). The purpose of the first collection is to assist in implementing the requested exemption and monitoring for compliance with the exemption’s conditions. The proposed delivery requirement is designed to ensure that the Lead Placement Agent has a copy of the buyer’s agent agreement in order to comply with its recordkeeping obligations discussed below, which would facilitate monitoring for compliance. Without this collection of information, the Commission and applicable selfregulatory organization (‘‘SRO’’) would be unable to monitor the Lead Placement Agent’s compliance. Second, the requested exemption would require any Commercial Real Estate Professional that is to receive, directly or indirectly, a portion of a Real Estate Advisory Fee to not be subject to any ‘‘statutory disqualification,’’ as defined in Section 3(a)(39) of the Exchange Act (other than subparagraph (E) of that section), and to deliver a representation in writing to that effect to the Lead Placement Agent at closing. The purpose of the second collection is to ensure that the Lead Placement Agent has a copy of the statutory disqualification representation in order to comply with its recordkeeping obligations, which would facilitate monitoring for compliance with the conditions of the requested exemption. Without this collection of information, the Commission and applicable SRO would be unable to monitor the Lead Placement Agent’s compliance. PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Third, the requested exemption would require broker-dealers that sell the TIC Securities as participating brokers (‘‘Selling Broker-Dealers’’) to deliver a representation in writing that the Selling Broker-Dealer performed a suitability analysis to the Lead Placement Agent at closing, or, if the Selling Broker-Dealer is the Lead Placement Agent, to make such a representation in writing at closing. The purpose of the third collection is to ensure that the Lead Placement Agent has a copy of the suitability analysis in order to comply with its recordkeeping obligations, which would facilitate monitoring compliance with the conditions of the requested exemption. Without this collection of information, the Commission and applicable SRO would be unable to monitor the Lead Placement Agent’s compliance and would be unable to ensure that the Selling Broker-Dealer had conducted an appropriate suitability analysis. Fourth, the requested exemption would require a Selling Broker-Dealer that determines that a TIC Security transaction is not suitable to obtain a written affirmation that the customer wants to proceed with the TIC Security transaction notwithstanding the Selling Broker-Dealer’s determination. It also would require the Selling Broker-Dealer to deliver the written affirmation to the Lead Placement Agent at closing or, if the Selling Broker-Dealer is the Lead Placement Agent, to maintain the written affirmation consistent with the record retention provisions of Exchange Act Rule 17a–4. The purpose of the fourth collection is to ensure that the customer is informed if a Selling BrokerDealer determines a transaction is not suitable, and, if the customer wants to proceed with the transaction, that the customer has made such a decision in light of the broker-dealer’s determination. In addition, the proposed delivery requirement is designed to ensure that the Lead Placement Agent has a copy of the customer affirmation in order to comply with its recordkeeping obligations, which would facilitate monitoring for compliance with the conditions of the requested exemption. Without this collection of information, the Commission and applicable SRO would be unable to monitor the Lead Placement Agent’s compliance and would be unable to ensure that the Selling Broker-Dealer had conducted a suitability analysis and informed the client of this determination. Fifth, the requested exemption would require the Lead Placement Agent to maintain a copy of each of the documents that is to be made and/or E:\FR\FM\06DEN1.SGM 06DEN1
