Requiring the inclusion of such standardized performance data in sales literature is designed to prevent misleading performance claims by funds and to enable investors to make meaningful comparisons among fund performance claims. The Commission estimates that 3,210 respondents file approximately 13,001 responses with the Commission that include the information required by rule 34b–1. The burden from rule 34b–1 requires 2.41 hours per response resulting from creating the information required under rule 34b–1. The total burden hours for rule 34b–1 is 31,332 per year in the aggregate (13,001 responses × 2.41 hours per response). Estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, and are not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of Commission rules and forms. The collection of information under rule 34b–1 is mandatory. The information provided under rule 34b–1 is not kept confidential. The Commission may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
