Extension: Rule 17a–1; SEC File No. 270–244, OMB Control No. 3235–0208. Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:03 Aug 06, 2013 Jkt 229001 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the existing collection of information provided for in Rule 17a–1 (17 CFR 240.17a–1) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’) (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.). The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. Rule 17a–1 requires that every national securities exchange, national securities association, registered clearing agency, and the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board keep on file for a period of not less than five years, the first two years in an easily accessible place, at least one copy of all documents, including all correspondence, memoranda, papers, books, notices, accounts, and other such records made or received by it in the course of its business as such and in the conduct of its self-regulatory activity, and that such documents be available for examination by the Commission. There are 28 entities required to comply with the rule: 17 national securities exchanges, 1 national securities association, 9 registered clearing agencies, and the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board. The Commission staff estimates that the average number of hours necessary for compliance with the requirements of Rule 17a–1 is 50 hours per year. In addition, 5 national securities exchanges notice-registered pursuant to Section 6(g) of the Act (15 U.S.C. 78f(g)) are required to preserve records of determinations made under Rule 3a55– 1 under the Act (17 CFR 240.3a55–1), which the Commission staff estimates will take 1 hour per exchange, for a total of 5 hours. Accordingly, the Commission staff estimates that the total number of hours necessary to comply with the requirements of Rule 17a–1 is 1,405 hours. The average cost per hour is $63. Therefore, the total cost of compliance for all respondents is $88,515. Written comments are invited on (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 other forms of information technology.

(the ‘‘Exchange Act’’). The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. On July 7, 1976, effective July 16, 1976 (see 41 FR 28948, July 14, 1976), the Commission adopted Rule 15Ba2–5 under the Exchange Act of 1934 to permit a duly-appointed fiduciary to assume immediate responsibility for the operation of a municipal securities dealer’s business. Without the rule, the fiduciary would not be able to assume operation until it registered as a municipal securities dealer. Under the rule, the registration of a municipal securities dealer is deemed to be the registration of any executor, administrator, guardian, conservator, E:\FR\FM\07AUN1.SGM 07AUN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 152 / Wednesday, August 7, 2013 / Notices assignee for the benefit of creditors, receiver, trustee in insolvency or bankruptcy, or other fiduciary, appointed or qualified by order, judgment, or decree of a court of competent jurisdiction to continue the business of such municipal securities dealer, provided that such fiduciary files with the Commission, within 30 days after entering upon the performance of his duties, a statement setting forth as to such fiduciary substantially the same information required by Form MSD or Form BD. The statement is necessary to ensure that the Commission and the public have adequate information about the fiduciary. There is approximately 1 respondent per year that requires an aggregate total of 4 hours to comply with this rule. This respondent makes an estimated 1 annual response. Each response takes approximately 4 hours to complete. Thus, the total compliance burden per year is 4 burden hours. The approximate cost per hour is $20, resulting in a total cost of compliance for the respondent of approximately $80 (i.e., 4 hours x $20).

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION


Proposed Collection; Comment Request

Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: Securities and Exchange 
Commission, Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, Washington, DC 
20549-0213.

Extension:
    Rule 15Ba2-5, SEC File No. 270-91, OMB Control No. 3235-0088.

    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'') is soliciting comments on the collection of 
information provided for in Rule 15Ba2-5 (17 CFR 240.15Ba2-5)--
Registration of Fiduciaries, under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (the ``Exchange Act''). The Commission plans to 
submit this existing collection of information to the Office of 
Management and Budget for extension and approval.
    On July 7, 1976, effective July 16, 1976 (see 41 FR 28948, July 14, 
1976), the Commission adopted Rule 15Ba2-5 under the Exchange Act of 
1934 to permit a duly-appointed fiduciary to assume immediate 
responsibility for the operation of a municipal securities dealer's 
business. Without the rule, the fiduciary would not be able to assume 
operation until it registered as a municipal securities dealer. Under 
the rule, the registration of a municipal securities dealer is deemed 
to be the registration of any executor, administrator, guardian, 
conservator,

[[Page 48205]]

assignee for the benefit of creditors, receiver, trustee in insolvency 
or bankruptcy, or other fiduciary, appointed or qualified by order, 
judgment, or decree of a court of competent jurisdiction to continue 
the business of such municipal securities dealer, provided that such 
fiduciary files with the Commission, within 30 days after entering upon 
the performance of his duties, a statement setting forth as to such 
fiduciary substantially the same information required by Form MSD or 
Form BD. The statement is necessary to ensure that the Commission and 
the public have adequate information about the fiduciary.
    There is approximately 1 respondent per year that requires an 
aggregate total of 4 hours to comply with this rule. This respondent 
makes an estimated 1 annual response. Each response takes approximately 
4 hours to complete. Thus, the total compliance burden per year is 4 
burden hours. The approximate cost per hour is $20, resulting in a 
total cost of compliance for the respondent of approximately $80 (i.e., 
4 hours x $20).
    Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the Commission, including whether the information 
shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission's 
estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) 
ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents, including through the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology. 
Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in 
writing within 60 days of this publication.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information under the PRA unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number. Please direct your 
written comments to: Thomas Bayer, Director/Chief Information Officer, 
Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi Pavlik-Simon, 100 F
