The Form TA–1s must be filed with the Commission electronically, absent an exemption, on EDGAR pursuant to Regulation S–T (17 CFR 232). The Commission receives on an annual basis approximately 100 applications for registration on Form TA–1 from transfer agents required to register with the Commission. Included in this figure are amendments to Form TA–1 as required by Paragraph (c) of Rule 17Ac2–1 to address information that has become inaccurate, misleading, or incomplete. Based on past submissions, the staff estimates that the average number of hours necessary to comply with the requirements of Rule 17Ac–1 and Form TA–1 is one and onehalf hours with a total burden of 150 hours per year.
