Part 20 of the Commission’s regulations requires clearing organizations and any persons that are ‘‘reporting entities’’ to file swaps position data with the Commission. The Reporting Rules collect clearing member reports from clearing organizations. The Reporting Rules also require position reports from reporting entities for principal and counterparty positions in cleared and uncleared physical commodity swaps. Reporting entities are those persons that are either ‘‘clearing members’’ or ‘‘swap dealers’’ that are otherwise not clearing members. For purposes of Part 20, reporting parties are required to submit data on positions on a futures equivalent basis so as to allow the Commission to assess a trader’s market impact across differently structured but linked derivatives instruments and markets. The Commission initially estimated that approximately 705 entities would be affected by this rule. This number was based on the then estimated number of reporting firms. Because the Commission had not regulated the swap market, it has not previously collected data to support its estimate. Accordingly, the initial estimate of 705 affected entities has been revised to 3,998.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: ``Large Trader Reporting for Physical Commodity Swaps,'' OMB 
Control No. 3038-0095--Extension. This is a request for extension of a 
currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: This collection is in the public interest and is 
necessary for market surveillance. Part 20 of the Commission's 
regulations requires clearing organizations and any persons that are 
``reporting entities'' to file swaps position data with the Commission. 
The Reporting Rules collect clearing member reports from clearing 
organizations. The Reporting Rules also require position reports from 
reporting entities for principal and counterparty positions in cleared 
and uncleared physical commodity swaps. Reporting entities are those 
persons that are either ``clearing members'' or ``swap dealers'' that 
are otherwise not clearing members. For purposes of Part 20, reporting 
parties are required to submit data on positions on a futures 
equivalent basis so as to allow the Commission to assess a trader's 
market impact across differently structured but linked derivatives 
instruments and markets. The Commission initially estimated that 
approximately 705 entities would be affected by this rule. This number 
was based on the then estimated number of reporting firms. Because the 
Commission had not regulated the swap market, it has not previously 
collected data to support its estimate. Accordingly, the initial 
estimate of 705 affected entities has been revised to 3,998. The 
Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting 
comments on this collection of information was published on September 
17, 2014 (79 FR 55759).
    Burden Statement: The Commission estimates the burden of this 
collection of information as follows:
