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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:17 Jan 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 (‘‘OMB’’) a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. The title for the collection of information is ‘‘Rule 204–2’’ (17 CFR 275.204–2) under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80b–1). Rule 204–2 requires SEC-registered investment advisers to maintain copies of certain books and records relating to their advisory business. The collection of information under rule 204–2 is necessary for the Commission staff to use in its examination and oversight program. This collection of information is mandatory. The respondents to the collection of information are investment advisers registered with the Commission. As of August 31, 2007, there were 10,787 SEC registered advisers. Responses provided to the Commission in the context of its examination and oversight program are generally kept confidential. The records that an adviser must keep in accordance with rule 204–2 must generally be retained for not less than five years. The Commission has estimated that compliance with the requirements of the rule imposes a total burden of approximately 181.1541 hours for an adviser. Based on our experience, the Commission staff estimates a total annual burden of 1,954,109 hours for the collection of this information. 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.

Extension: Rule 237, SEC File No. 270–465, OMB Control No. 3235–0528. Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget a request for extension and approval of the collection of information discussed below. In Canada, as in the United States, individuals can invest a portion of their earnings in tax-deferred retirement savings accounts (‘‘Canadian retirement accounts’’). In cases where these individuals move to the United States, these participants (‘‘Canadian/U.S. Participants’’ or ‘‘participants’’) may not be able to manage their Canadian retirement account investments. Most securities and most investment companies (‘‘funds’’) that are ‘‘qualified investments’’ for Canadian retirement accounts are not registered under the U.S. securities laws. Those securities, therefore, generally cannot be publicly offered and sold in the United States without violating the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933 (‘‘Securities Act’’).1 As a result of these registration requirements of the U.S. securities laws, Canadian/U.S. Participants, in the past, had not been able to purchase or exchange securities for their Canadian retirement accounts as needed to meet their changing investment goals or income needs. In 2000, the Commission issued a rule that enabled Canadian/U.S. Participants to manage the assets in their Canadian retirement accounts by providing relief from the U.S. registration requirements for offers of securities of foreign issuers to Canadian/U.S. Participants and sales to their accounts.2 Rule 237 under the Securities Act 3 permits securities of foreign issuers, including securities of foreign funds, to be offered to Canadian/ U.S. Participants and sold to their Canadian retirement accounts without 1 15 U.S.C. 77a.
