ACTION: Withdrawal of Regulatory Guide 6.8. AGENCY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert G. Carpenter, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001, telephone: 301–415– 6177 or e-mail to Robert.Carpenter@nrc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing Regulatory Guide 6.8, ‘‘Identification Plaque for Irretrievable Well-Logging Sources,’’ published in October 1978. Regulatory Guide 6.8 provides guidance on acceptable design and mounting practices of the plaques, which are placed at the surface of wells to indicate the presence of an irretrievable welllogging source. The NRC is withdrawing this regulatory guide because it is no longer required. Regulatory Guide 6.8 references Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Sections 30 and 70, which no longer contain guidance for design or mounting of identification plaques. The current regulation regarding the identification plaques is found in 10 CFR 39.15, ‘‘Agreement with Well Owner or Operator.’’ Regulatory Guide 6.8 is no longer required because the current regulations in 10 CFR 39.15(a)(5) provide a specific description for the design and mounting of identification plaques for irretrievable well-logging sources. The instruction in 10 CFR 39.15(a)(5) is sufficient without further guidance. II. Further Information The withdrawal of Regulatory Guide 6.8 does not alter any prior or existing licensing commitments based on its use. The guidance provided in this regulatory guide is no longer necessary. Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when their guidance is superseded by congressional action or no longer provides useful information. Regulatory guides are available for inspection or downloading through the NRC’s public Web site under ‘‘Regulatory Guides’’ in the NRC’s Electronic Reading Room at http:// www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doccollections. Regulatory guides are also available for inspection at the NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR), Room VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:32 Oct 14, 2008 Jkt 217001 O–1 F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852– 2738.

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 publishing the following summaries of collections for public comment. Rule 15c2–1 (17 CFR 240.15c2–1) prohibits the commingling under the same lien of securities of margin customers (a) with other customers without their written consent and (b) with the broker or dealer. The rule also prohibits the rehypothecation of customers’ margin securities for a sum in excess of the customer’s aggregate indebtedness. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 2690 (November 15, 1940); Securities Exchange Act Release No. 9428 (December 29, 1971). Pursuant to Rule 15c2–1, respondents must collect information necessary to prevent the rehypothecation of customer securities in contravention of the rule, issue and retain copies of notices of hypothecation of customer securities in accordance with the rule, and collect written consents from customers in accordance with the rule. The information is necessary to ensure compliance with the rule, and to advise customers of the rule’s protections. There are approximately 126 respondents (i.e., broker-dealers that carry or clear customer accounts that also have bank loans) that require an aggregate total of 2,835 hours to comply with the rule. Each of these approximately 126 registered broker- PO 00000 Frm 00160 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 dealers makes an estimated 45 annual responses. Each response takes approximately 0.5 hours to complete. Thus, the total compliance burden per year is 2,835 burden hours. 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 shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 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. Please direct your written comments to Lewis W. Walker, Acting Director/ Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, C/O Shirley Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, Virginia 22312; or send an e-mail to: PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov.
