Extension: Rule 15c2–5; SEC File No. 270–195; OMB Control No. 3235–0198. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) a request for approval of an extension of the previously approved collection of information provided for in Rule 15c2–5 (17 CFR 240.15c2–5), under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78 et seq.) (‘‘Exchange Act’’). Rule 15c2–5 prohibits a broker-dealer from arranging or extending certain loans to persons in connection with the offer or sale of securities unless, before any element of the transaction is entered into, the broker-dealer: (1) Delivers to the person a written statement containing the exact nature and extent of the person’s obligations under the loan arrangement; the risks and disadvantages of the loan arrangement; and all commissions, discounts, and other remuneration received and to be received in connection with the transaction by the broker-dealer or certain related persons (unless the person receives certain materials from the lender or broker-dealer which contain the required information); and (2) obtains from the person information on the person’s financial situation and needs, reasonably determines that the transaction is suitable for the person, and retains on file and makes available to the person on request a written statement setting forth the brokerdealer’s basis for determining that the transaction was suitable. The collection of information required by Rule 15c2–5 is necessary to execute the Commission’s mandate under the Exchange Act to prevent fraudulent, manipulative, and deceptive acts and practices by broker-dealers. The Commission estimates that there are approximately 50 respondents that require an aggregate total of 600 hours to comply with Rule 15c2–5. Each of these approximately 50 registered broker-dealers makes an estimated six annual responses, for an aggregate total of 300 responses per year. Each response takes approximately two hours to complete. Thus, the total compliance burden per year is 600 burden hours. The approximate cost per hour is $50.00 for clerical labor, resulting in a total compliance cost of $30,000 (600 hours @ $50.00 per hour). These reflect internal labor costs; there are no external labor, capital, or start-up costs. Although Rule 15c2–5 does not specify a retention period or recordkeeping requirement under the rule, broker-dealers are required to preserve the records for a period no less than six years pursuant to Rule 17a-4(c). The information required under Rule 15c2– 5 is necessary for broker-dealers to engage in the lending activities E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1
