VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:32 Nov 21, 2014 Jkt 235001 Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of FOIA Services, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549–2736. Extension: Rule 10A–1; SEC File No. 270–425, OMB Control No. 3235–0468. 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 (‘‘OMB’’) a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. Rule 10A–1 (17 CFR 240.10A–1) implements the reporting requirements in Section 10A of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78j–1), which was enacted by Congress on December 22, 1995 as part of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Public Law No. 104–67, 109 Stat 737. Under section 10A and Rule 10A–1 reporting occurs only if a registrant’s board of directors receives a report from its auditor that (1) there is an illegal act material to the registrant’s financial statements, (2) senior management and the board have not taken timely and appropriate remedial action, and (3) the failure to take such action is reasonably expected to warrant the auditor’s modification of the audit report or resignation from the audit engagement. The board of directors must notify the Commission within one business day of receiving such a report. If the board fails to provide that notice, then the auditor, within the next business day, must provide the Commission with a copy of the report that it gave to the board. Likely respondents are those registrants filing audited financial statements under the Securities PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 69889 Exchange Act of 1934 (15 USC 78a, et seq.) and the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1, et seq.). It is estimated that Rule 10A–1 results in an aggregate additional reporting burden of 10 hours per year. The estimated average burden hours are solely for purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act and are not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of SEC rules or forms. There are no recordkeeping retention periods in Rule 10A–1. Because of the one business day reporting periods, recordkeeping retention periods should not be significant. Filing the notice or report under Rule 10A–1 is mandatory once the conditions noted above have been satisfied. Because these notices and reports discuss potential illegal acts, they are considered to be investigative records and are kept confidential. 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. The public may view the information discussed in this notice at www.reginfo.gov. Comments should be directed to: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503, or by sending an email to: Shagufta_ Ahmed@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) Pamela Dyson, Acting Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi PavlikSimon, 100 F Street NE., Washington DC 20549 or send an email to: PRA_ Mailbox@sec.gov. Comments must be submitted to OMB within 30 days of this notice. Dated: November 18, 2014. Kevin M. O’Neill, Deputy Secretary.

Specifically, Rule 17Ac2–1 requires transfer agents to file a Form TA–1 application for registration with the Commission where the Commission is their ARA. Such transfer agents must also amend their Form TA–1 if the existing information on their Form TA– 1 becomes inaccurate, misleading, or incomplete within 60 days following the date the information became inaccurate, misleading or incomplete. Registration filings on Form TA–1 and amendments thereto must be filed with the Commission electronically, absent an exemption, on EDGAR pursuant to Regulation S–T (17 CFR 232).

Included in this figure are approximately 164 amendments made annually by transfer agents to their Form TA–1 as required by Rule 17Ac2– 1(c) to address information that has become inaccurate, misleading, or incomplete and approximately 10 new applications by transfer agents for registration on Form TA–1 as required by Rule 17Ac2–1(a). Based on past submissions, the staff estimates that on average approximately twelve hours are required for initial completion of Form VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:32 Nov 21, 2014 Jkt 235001 TA–1 and that on average one and onehalf hours are required for an amendment to Form TA–1 by each such firm. Thus, the subtotal burden for new applications for registration filed on Form TA–1 each year is 120 hours (12 hours times 10 filers) and the subtotal burden for amendments to Form TA–1 filed each year is 246 hours (1.5 hours times 164 filers). The cumulative total is 366 burden hours per year (120 hours plus 246 hours).

    Rule 17Ac2-1, SEC File No. 270-95, OMB Control No. 3235-0084.


[[Page 69890]]


    Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (``PRA'') (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 17Ac2-1 (17 CFR 
240.17Ac2-1) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a 
et seq.) (``Exchange Act''). The Commission plans to submit this 
existing collection of information to the Office of Management and 
Budget (``OMB'') for extension and approval.
    Rule 17Ac2-1, pursuant to Section 17A(c) of the Exchange Act, 
generally requires transfer agents to register with their Appropriate 
Regulatory Agency (``ARA''), whether the Commission, the Comptroller of 
the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the 
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or the Office of Thrift 
Supervision, and to amend their registrations if the information 
becomes inaccurate, misleading, or incomplete.
    Rule 17Ac2-1, pursuant to Section 17A(c) of the Exchange Act, 
generally requires transfer agents for whom the Commission is the 
transfer agent's Appropriate Regulatory Agency (``ARA''), to file an 
application for registration with the Commission on Form TA-1 and to 
amend their registrations under certain circumstances.
    Specifically, Rule 17Ac2-1 requires transfer agents to file a Form 
TA-1 application for registration with the Commission where the 
Commission is their ARA. Such transfer agents must also amend their 
Form TA-1 if the existing information on their Form TA-1 becomes 
inaccurate, misleading, or incomplete within 60 days following the date 
the information became inaccurate, misleading or incomplete. 
Registration filings on Form TA-1 and amendments thereto must be filed 
with the Commission electronically, absent an exemption, on EDGAR 
pursuant to Regulation S-T (17 CFR 232).
    The Commission annually receives approximately 174 filings on Form 
TA-1 from transfer agents required to register as such with the 
Commission. Included in this figure are approximately 164 amendments 
made annually by transfer agents to their Form TA-1 as required by Rule 
17Ac2-1(c) to address information that has become inaccurate, 
misleading, or incomplete and approximately 10 new applications by 
transfer agents for registration on Form TA-1 as required by Rule 
17Ac2-1(a). Based on past submissions, the staff estimates that on 
average approximately twelve hours are required for initial completion 
of Form TA-1 and that on average one and one-half hours are required 
for an amendment to Form TA-1 by each such firm. Thus, the subtotal 
burden for new applications for registration filed on Form TA-1 each 
year is 120 hours (12 hours times 10 filers) and the subtotal burden 
for amendments to Form TA-1 filed each year is 246 hours (1.5 hours 
times 164 filers). The cumulative total is 366 burden hours per year 
(120 hours plus 246 hours).
    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 the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will 
be given to comments and suggestions submitted 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.

Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission,
