SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION


Submission for OMB Review; Comments Requested

    Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: Securities and 
Exchange Commission, Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, 
Washington, DC 20549.

Extension:
    Rule 17a-3, SEC File No. 270-026, OMB Control No. 3235-0033.

    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 (``OMB'') a request for extension of the previously approved 
collection of information discussed below. The Code of Federal 
Regulation citation to this collection of information is the following 
rule: 17 CFR 240.17a-3.
    Rule 17a-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 establishes 
minimum standards with respect to business records that broker-dealers 
registered with the Commission must make and keep current. These 
records are maintained by the broker-dealer (in accordance with a 
separate rule), so they can be used by the broker-dealer and reviewed 
by Commission examiners, as well as other regulatory authority 
examiners, during inspections of the broker-dealer.
    The collections of information included in Rule 17a-3 is necessary 
to provide Commission, self-regulatory organization and State examiners 
to conduct effective and efficient examinations to determine whether 
broker-dealers are complying with relevant laws, rules, and 
regulations. If broker-dealers were not required to create these 
baseline, standardized records, Commission, self-regulatory 
organization and State examiners could be unable to determine whether 
broker-dealers are in compliance with the Commission's antifraud and 
anti-manipulation rules, financial responsibility program, and other 
Commission, SRO, and State laws, rules, and regulations.
    As of October 1, 2010, there were 5,057 broker-dealers registered 
with the Commission. The Commission estimates that these broker-dealer 
respondents incur a total burden of 2,723,970 hours per year to comply 
with Rule 17a-3. Approximately 1,464,777 of those hours are 
attributable to paragraph 17a-3(a)(17), and about 1,259,193 hours are 
attributable to the rest of Rule 17a-3.

[[Page 17166]]

    In addition, Rule 17a-3 contains ongoing operation and maintenance 
costs for broker-dealers including the cost of postage to provide 
customers with account information, and costs for equipment and systems 
development. The Commission estimates that under Rule 17a-3(a)(17), 
approximately 35,627,958 customers will need to be provided with 
information regarding their account on a yearly basis. The Commission 
estimates that the postage costs associated with providing those 
customers with copies of their account record information would be 
approximately $10,688,387 per year (35,627,958 x $0.30). The staff 
believes that the ongoing equipment and systems development costs 
relating to Rule 17a-3 for the industry would be about $23,514,452 per 
year. Consequently, the total cost burden associated with Rule 17a-3 
would be approximately $34,202,839 per year.
    Rule 17a-3 does not contain record retention requirements. 
Compliance with the rule is mandatory. The required records are 
available only to the staffs of the Commission, self-regulatory 
organizations of which the broker-dealer is a member, and the States 
during examination, inspections and investigations.
    The Commission may not conduct or sponsor a collection of 
information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No 
person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a 
collection of information subject to the PRA that does not display a 
valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number.
