[FR Doc. 2015–20006 Filed 8–13–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 8011–01–P SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION Proposed Collection; Comment Request Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of FOIA Services, Washington, DC 20549–2736. Extension: Rules 3a68–2 and 3a68–4(c); SEC File No. 270–641, OMB Control No. 3235–0685. 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 (‘‘SEC’’) is soliciting comments on the existing collection of information provided for Rules 3a68–2 and 3a68–4(c). The SEC plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for extension and approval. Rule 3a68–2 creates a process for interested persons to request a joint interpretation by the SEC and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘CFTC’’) (together with the SEC, the ‘‘Commissions’’) regarding whether a particular instrument (or class of instruments) is a swap, a security-based swap, or both (i.e., a mixed swap). Under Rule 3a68–2, a person provides to the Commissions a copy of all material information regarding the terms of, and a statement of the economic characteristics and purpose of, each relevant agreement, contract, or transaction (or class thereof), along with that person’s determination as to whether each such 67 17 PO 00000 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12). Frm 00146 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48949 agreement, contract, or transaction (or class thereof) should be characterized as a swap, security-based swap, or both (i.e., a mixed swap). The Commissions also may request the submitting person to provide additional information. The SEC expects 25 requests pursuant to Rule 3a68–2 per year. The SEC estimates the total paperwork burden associated with preparing and submitting each request would be 20 hours to retrieve, review, and submit the information associated with the submission. This 20 hour burden is divided between the SEC and the CFTC, with 10 hours per response regarding reporting to the SEC and 10 hours of response regarding third party disclosure to the CFTC.1 The SEC estimates this would result in an aggregate annual burden of 500 hours (25 requests × 20 hours/request). The SEC estimates that the total costs resulting from a submission under Rule 3a68–2 would be approximately $12,000 for outside attorneys to retrieve, review, and submit the information associated with the submission. The SEC estimates this would result in aggregate costs each year of $300,000 (25 requests × 30 hours/request × $400). Rule 3a68–4(c) establishes a process for persons to request that the Commissions issue a joint order permitting such persons (and any other person or persons that subsequently lists, trades, or clears that class of mixed swap) to comply, as to parallel provisions only, with specified parallel provisions of either the Commodity Exchange Act (‘‘CEA’’) or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’), and related rules and regulations (collectively ‘‘specified parallel provisions’’), instead of being required to comply with parallel provisions of both the CEA and the Exchange Act. The SEC expects ten requests pursuant to Rule 3a68–4(c) per year. The SEC estimates that nine of these requests will have also been made in a request for a joint interpretation pursuant to Rule 3a68–2, and one will not have been. The SEC estimates the total burden for the one request for which the joint interpretation pursuant to 3a68–2 was not requested would be 30 hours, and the total burden associated with the other nine requests would be 20 hours per request because some of the information required to be submitted pursuant to Rule 3a68–4(c) would have already been submitted pursuant to Rule 3a68–2. The burden in both cases is evenly divided between the SEC and the CFTC. 1 The burdens imposed by the CFTC are included in this collection of information.

For the nine requests for which a request for a joint interpretation pursuant to Rule 3a68–2 was previously made, the SEC estimates the total costs associated with preparing and submitting a party’s request pursuant to Rule 3a68–4(c) would be $6,000 less per request because, as discussed above, some of the information required to be submitted pursuant to Rule 3a68–4(c) already would have been submitted pursuant to Rule 3a68–2.

It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) that there is a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of DJSP Enterprises, Inc. (CIK No. 0001436612) (‘‘DJSP’’), because there is a lack of adequate and accurate information concerning DJSP’s financial statements contained in its Form 20–F filed on April 2, 2010, and in its Forms 6–K furnished on May 28, 2010 and September 22, 2010. DJSP is a British Virgin Islands corporation based in Plantation, Florida with a class of securities that was registered with the Commission pursuant to Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’) until June 2011, 90 days after DJSP filed a Form 25 with the Commission voluntary delisting and deregistering its common stock. DJSP’s stock is currently quoted on OTC Link, operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc., under the ticker: DJSP. The Commission is of the opinion that the public interest and the protection of investors require a suspension of trading in the securities of DJSP. Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to Section 12(k) of the Exchange Act, that trading in the securities of DJSP Enterprises, Inc. is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EDT on August 12, 2015, through 11:59 p.m. EDT on August 25, 2015.

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION


Proposed Collection; Comment Request

Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: U.S. Securities and 
Exchange Commission, Office of FOIA Services, Washington, DC 20549-
2736.

Extension:
    Rules 3a68-2 and 3a68-4(c);
    SEC File No. 270-641, OMB Control No. 3235-0685.

    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 (``SEC'') is soliciting comments on the existing collection 
of information provided for Rules 3a68-2 and 3a68-4(c). The SEC plans 
to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of 
Management and Budget (``OMB'') for extension and approval.
    Rule 3a68-2 creates a process for interested persons to request a 
joint interpretation by the SEC and the Commodity Futures Trading 
Commission (``CFTC'') (together with the SEC, the ``Commissions'') 
regarding whether a particular instrument (or class of instruments) is 
a swap, a security-based swap, or both (i.e., a mixed swap). Under Rule 
3a68-2, a person provides to the Commissions a copy of all material 
information regarding the terms of, and a statement of the economic 
characteristics and purpose of, each relevant agreement, contract, or 
transaction (or class thereof), along with that person's determination 
as to whether each such agreement, contract, or transaction (or class 
thereof) should be characterized as a swap, security-based swap, or 
both (i.e., a mixed swap). The Commissions also may request the 
submitting person to provide additional information.
    The SEC expects 25 requests pursuant to Rule 3a68-2 per year. The 
SEC estimates the total paperwork burden associated with preparing and 
submitting each request would be 20 hours to retrieve, review, and 
submit the information associated with the submission. This 20 hour 
burden is divided between the SEC and the CFTC, with 10 hours per 
response regarding reporting to the SEC and 10 hours of response 
regarding third party disclosure to the CFTC.\1\ The SEC estimates this 
would result in an aggregate annual burden of 500 hours (25 requests x 
20 hours/request).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The burdens imposed by the CFTC are included in this 
collection of information.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The SEC estimates that the total costs resulting from a submission 
under Rule 3a68-2 would be approximately $12,000 for outside attorneys 
to retrieve, review, and submit the information associated with the 
submission. The SEC estimates this would result in aggregate costs each 
year of $300,000 (25 requests x 30 hours/request x $400).
    Rule 3a68-4(c) establishes a process for persons to request that 
the Commissions issue a joint order permitting such persons (and any 
other person or persons that subsequently lists, trades, or clears that 
class of mixed swap) to comply, as to parallel provisions only, with 
specified parallel provisions of either the Commodity Exchange Act 
(``CEA'') or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (``Exchange Act''), 
and related rules and regulations (collectively ``specified parallel 
provisions''), instead of being required to comply with parallel 
provisions of both the CEA and the Exchange Act.
    The SEC expects ten requests pursuant to Rule 3a68-4(c) per year. 
The SEC estimates that nine of these requests will have also been made 
in a request for a joint interpretation pursuant to Rule 3a68-2, and 
one will not have been. The SEC estimates the total burden for the one 
request for which the joint interpretation pursuant to 3a68-2 was not 
requested would be 30 hours, and the total burden associated with the 
other nine requests would be 20 hours per request because some of the 
information required to be submitted pursuant to Rule 3a68-4(c) would 
have already been submitted pursuant to Rule 3a68-2. The burden in both 
cases is evenly divided between the SEC and the CFTC.

[[Page 48950]]

    The SEC estimates that the total costs resulting from a submission 
under Rule 3a68-4(c) would be approximately $20,000 for the services of 
outside attorneys to retrieve, review, and submit the information 
associated with the submission of the one request for which a request 
for a joint interpretation pursuant to Rule 3a68-2 was not previously 
made (1 request x 50 hours/request x $400). For the nine requests for 
which a request for a joint interpretation pursuant to Rule 3a68-2 was 
previously made, the SEC estimates the total costs associated with 
preparing and submitting a party's request pursuant to Rule 3a68-4(c) 
would be $6,000 less per request because, as discussed above, some of 
the information required to be submitted pursuant to Rule 3a68-4(c) 
already would have been submitted pursuant to Rule 3a68-2. The SEC 
estimates this would result in an aggregate cost each year of $126,000 
for the services of outside attorneys (9 requests x 35 hours/request x 
$400).
    Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the SEC, including whether the information shall have 
practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the SEC'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.
