Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 53503 [2011-21859]

Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 166 / Friday, August 26, 2011 / Notices through a registered securities exchange or a national securities association in accordance with a plan submitted to and approved by the Commission. Plans have been approved for the American, Boston, Chicago, New York, Pacific, and Philadelphia stock exchanges and for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (‘‘FINRA’’) and the Chicago Board Options Exchange. Currently, the bulk of the fingerprints are submitted through FINRA. It is estimated that approximately 4,939 respondents submit approximately 288,000 sets of fingerprints (consisting of 133,000 electronic fingerprints and 155,000 fingerprint cards) to exchanges or a national securities association on an annual basis. The Commission estimates that it would take approximately 15 minutes to create and submit each fingerprint card. The total reporting burden is therefore estimated to be 72,000 hours, or approximately 15 hours per respondent, annually. In addition, the exchanges and FINRA charge an estimated $30.25 fee for processing fingerprint cards, resulting in a total annual cost to all 4,939 respondents of $8,712,000, or $1,764 per respondent per year. Because the Federal Bureau of Investigation will not accept fingerprint cards directly from submitting organizations, Commission approval of plans from certain exchanges and national securities associations is essential to the Congressional goal of fingerprint personnel in the security industry. The filing of these plans for review assures users and their personnel that fingerprint cards will be handled responsibly and with due care for confidentiality. Submission of fingerprint plans under Rule 17f-2(c) is mandatory for selfregulatory organizations. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.
