Extension: Rule 17Ac3–1(a) and SEC File No. 270–96; OMB Control No. 3235–0151; Form TA– W (1669). 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 requests for approval of extension on the following rule and form: Rule 17Ac3–1(a) (17 CFR 240.17Ac3–1(a)) and Form TA–W (17 CFR 249b.101) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.). Section 17A(c)(4)(B) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) authorizes transfer agents registered with an appropriate regulatory agency (‘‘ARA’’) to withdraw from registration by filing with the ARA a written notice of withdrawal and by PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 agreeing to such terms and conditions as the ARA deems necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or in the furtherance of the purposes of Section 17A. In order to implement Section 17A(c)(4)(B) of the Exchange Act the Commission, on September 1, 1977, promulgated Rule 17Ac3–1(a) and accompanying Form TA–W. On January 11, 2007, the Commission amended Rule 17Ac3–1(a) and accompanying Form TA–W to require that the form be filed in electronic format through EDGAR. Rule 17Ac3–1(a) provides that notice of withdrawal of registration as a transfer agent with the Commission shall be filed on Form TA–W. Form TA– W requires the withdrawing transfer agent to provide the Commission with certain information, including: (1) The locations where transfer agent activities are or were performed; (2) the reasons for ceasing the performance of such activities; (3) disclosure of unsatisfied judgments or liens; and (4) information regarding successor transfer agents. The Commission uses the information disclosed on Form TA–W to determine whether the registered transfer agent applying for withdrawal from registration as a transfer agent should be allowed to deregister and, if so, whether the Commission should attach to the granting of the application any terms or conditions necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or in furtherance of the purposes of Section 17A of the Exchange Act. Without Rule 17Ac3–1(a) and Form TA–W, transfer agents registered with the Commission would not have a means to voluntarily deregister when necessary or appropriate to do so. Respondents file approximately 50 TA–Ws with the Commission annually. A Form TA–W filing occurs only once, when a transfer agent is seeking deregistration. Respondents file approximately 50 TA–Ws with the Commission annually. A Form TA–W filing occurs only once, when a transfer agent is seeing deregistration. Approximately 80 percent of Form TA– Ws are completed by the transfer agent or its employees and approximately 20 percent of Forms TA–W are completed by an outside filing agent that is hired by the registrant to prepare the form and file it electronically. In view of the readily-available information requested by Form TA–W, its short and simple presentation, and the Commission’s experience with the filers, we estimate that approximately 30 minutes is required to complete and file Form TA– W, which consists primarily of external E:\FR\FM\06JNN1.SGM 06JNN1
