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 December 3, 2015 (80 FR 
    Title: Daily Trade and Supporting Data Reports (OMB Control No. 
3038-0061). This is a request for extension of a currently approved 
information collection.
    Abstract: Commission Regulation 16.02 requires Reporting Markets, 
including Designated Contract Markets, to provide the Commission with 
trade and supporting data reports on a daily basis. The Commission 
analyzes the daily trade and supporting data reports to discharge its 
regulatory responsibilities, including the responsibilities to prevent 
market manipulations and commodity price distortions and ensure the 
financial integrity of its jurisdictional markets.
    This ICR concerns the collections of information required by 17 CFR 
16.02. Commission staff estimates that up to 30 reporting markets could 
provide this data to the Commission in the future. The Commission did 
not receive any comments regarding the burden estimate or any other 
aspect of this ICR.
    Burden Statement: Commission staff estimate that the total annual 
time burden for this ICR is 15,000 hours. Commission staff estimates 
that the total annual cost for this ICR is $1,139,700. The time burden 
estimate represents the annual burden that Reporting Markets incur to 
operate and maintain automated reporting systems and processes that 
facilitate the reporting of trade and supporting data reports to the 
Commission on a daily basis. The electronic reporting required by 
Commission Rule 16.02 is generally accomplished in an automated manner 
by respondents' computer systems. Reporting entities have already 
incurred significant one-time costs to establish the capability to 
electronically report trade and supporting data to the Commission on a 
daily basis. The burden hours currently incurred by respondents to 
comply with Commission Rule 16.02 are primarily related to the hours 
necessary to oversee, maintain, and utilize respondents' existing 
automated reporting functionality.
    Commission staff estimates that Reporting Markets expend an average 
of two hours per trading day to oversee, maintain, and utilize their 
systems and procesess to comply with Commission Rule 16.02. Commission 
staff calculated the estimated cost burden by multiplying the estimated 
time burden by an estimated appropriate hourly wage rate of $75.98. 
Commission staff derived the estimated appropriate hourly wage rate by 
averaging the salaries and bonuses of relevant professions reported in 
the SIFMA Report on Management & Professional Earnings in the 
Securities Industry 2013.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Reporting Markets.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 30.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 15,000 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,139,700.
    Frequency of Collection: Ongoing.

    Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

    Dated: January 27, 2016.
Robert N. Sidman,
Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
