SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 OMB control number. The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on August 7, 2015 (80 FR 47477). Title: Swap Data Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements (OMB Control No. 3038–0096). This is a request for extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: Section 727 of the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘Dodd-Frank Act’’) specifically required that each swap subject to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s jurisdiction be reported to a newly-created registered entity, the swap data repository. Section 728 of the Dodd-Frank Act specifically required the Commission to establish standards for swap data recordkeeping and reporting, including the data elements to be collected and maintained by swap data repositories for each swap. Section 729 of the Dodd-Frank Act required that at least one counterparty to each swap have an obligation to report data concerning the swap and provided for data reporting to the Commission for swaps not accepted by a swap data repository. Pursuant to this mandate, the Commission adopted 17 CFR part 45 on December 20, 2011, to establish swap data recordkeeping and reporting requirements. This ICR concerns the collections of information required by 17 CFR part 45. The Commission estimated that approximately 30,210 entities would be affected by this ICR. That number was based on the current estimate of the total number of swap data repositories, swap execution facilities, designated contract markets, derivatives clearing organizations, swap dealers, major swap participants and other swap counterparties. The Commission did not receive any comments regarding the burden estimated or any other aspect of this ICR. Burden Statement: The total annual time burden for this ICR is estimated to be 445,910 hours. This estimate includes the time to comply with swap data recordkeeping and reporting requirements codified in 17 CFR part 45. Provisions of Commission Regulations §§ 45.2, 45.3, 45.4, 45.5, 45.6, 45.7, and 45.14 result in information collection requirements within the meaning of the PRA. To the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Oct 21, 2015 Jkt 238001 extent that the recordkeeping and reporting requirements codified in 17 CFR part 45 overlap with the requirements of other rulemakings for which the Commission prepared and submitted an information collection burden estimate to OMB, the burden associated with the requirements are not being accounted for in this ICR to avoid unnecessary duplication of information collection burdens. Respondents/Affected Entities: Swap data repositories, swap execution facilities, designated contract markets, derivatives clearing organizations, swap dealers, major swap participants and other swap counterparties (i.e., nonswap dealer/non-major swap participant counterparties). Estimated Number of Respondents: 30,210. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 445,910 hours. Frequency of Collection: Ongoing. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.
