Without this relief, the statutory obligation of each individual SRO could result in a pattern of multiple examinations of broker-dealers that maintain memberships in more than one SRO (‘‘common members’’). Such regulatory duplication would add unnecessary expenses for common members and their SROs. Section 17(d)(1) of the Act 6 was intended, in part, to eliminate unnecessary multiple examinations and regulatory duplication.7 With respect to a common member, Section 17(d)(1) authorizes the Commission, by rule or order, to relieve an SRO of the responsibility to receive regulatory reports, to examine for and enforce compliance with applicable statutes, rules, and regulations, or to perform other specified regulatory functions. To implement Section 17(d)(1), the Commission adopted two rules: Rule 17d–1 and Rule 17d–2 under the Act.8 Rule 17d–1 authorizes the Commission to name a single SRO as the designated examining authority (‘‘DEA’’) to examine common members for compliance with the financial responsibility requirements imposed by the Act, or by Commission or SRO rules.9 When an SRO has been named as a common member’s DEA, all other SROs to which the common member belongs are relieved of the responsibility to examine the firm for compliance with the applicable financial responsibility rules. On its face, Rule 17d–1 deals only with an SRO’s obligations to enforce member compliance with financial responsibility requirements. Rule 17d–1 does not relieve an SRO from its obligation to examine a common member for compliance with its own rules and provisions of the federal securities laws governing matters other than financial responsibility, including 4 15 U.S.C. 78q(d).

OMB Control No. 3235-0009.

    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'') is soliciting comments on the collection of 
information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this 
existing collection of information to the Office of Management and 
Budget for extension and approval.
    Information collected and information prepared pursuant to 
Regulation S-X focus on the form and content of, and requirements for, 
financial statements filed with periodic reports and in connection with 
the offer and sale of securities. Investors need reasonably current 
financial statements to make informed investment and voting decisions.
    The potential respondents include all entities that file 
registration statements or reports pursuant to the Securities Act of 
1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.), the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 
U.S.C. 78a et seq.) or the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 
80a-1 et seq.).
    Regulation S-X specifies the form and content of financial 
statements when those financial statements are required to be filed by 
other rules and forms under the federal securities laws. Compliance 
burdens associated with the financial statements are assigned to the 
rule or form that directly requires the financial statements to be 
filed, not to Regulation S-X. Instead, an estimated burden of one hour 
traditionally has been assigned to Regulation S-X for incidental 
reading of the regulation. The estimated average burden hours are 
solely for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived 
from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the 
costs of SEC rules or forms.
    Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) 
ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will 
be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 
days of this publication.
