In addition, as noted above, investors will have ready access to information regarding the Fund’s holdings, the Intraday Indicative Value, the Disclosed Portfolio, and quotation and last sale information for the Shares. The proposed rule change is designed to perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest in that it will facilitate the listing and trading of an additional type of activelymanaged exchange-traded product that will enhance competition among market participants, to the benefit of investors and the marketplace. As noted above, FINRA, on behalf of the Exchange, will communicate as needed regarding trading in the Shares and in the Exchange-Traded Instruments held by the Fund and the Subsidiary with other markets and other entities that are members of the ISG and FINRA may obtain trading information regarding trading in the Shares and in the Exchange-Traded Instruments held by the Fund and the Subsidiary from such markets and other entities. In addition, as noted above, investors will have ready access to information regarding the Fund’s holdings, the Intraday Indicative Value, the Disclosed Portfolio, and quotation and last sale information for the Shares.

Extension: Form S–6, SEC File No. 270–181, OMB Control No. 3235–0184. 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 (the ‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. The title for the collection of information is ‘‘Form S–6 (17 CFR 239.16), for Registration under the Securities Act of 1933 of Securities of Unit Investment Trusts Registered on Form N–8B–2 (17 CFR 274.13).’’ Form S–6 is a form used for registration under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) (‘‘Securities Act’’) of securities of any unit investment trust (‘‘UIT’’) registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) (‘‘Investment Company Act’’) on Form N–8B–2. Section 5 of the Securities Act (15 U.S.C. 77e) requires the filing of a registration statement prior to the offer of securities to the public and that the statement be 36 17 E:\FR\FM\16MRN1.SGM CFR 200.30–3(a)(12). 16MRN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 51 / Wednesday, March 16, 2016 / Notices effective before any securities are sold. Section 5(b) of the Securities Act requires that investors be provided with a prospectus containing the information required in a registration statement prior to the sale or at the time of confirmation or delivery of the securities. Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act (15 U.S.C. 77j(a)(3)) provides that when a prospectus is used more than nine months after the effective date of the registration statement, the information therein shall be as of a date not more than sixteen months prior to such use. As a result, most UITs update their registration statements under the Securities Act on an annual basis in order that their sponsors may continue to maintain a secondary market in the units. UITs that are registered under the Investment Company Act on Form N– 8B–2 file post-effective amendments to their registration statements on Form S– 6 in order to update their prospectuses. The purpose of Form S–6 is to meet the filing and disclosure requirements of the Securities Act and to enable filers to provide investors with information necessary to evaluate an investment in the security. This information collection differs significantly from many other federal information collections, which are primarily for the use and benefit of the collecting agency. The information required to be filed with the Commission permits verification of compliance with securities law requirements and assures the public availability and dissemination of the information. The Commission estimates that there are approximately 1,340 initial registration statements filed on Form S– 6 annually and approximately 1,158 annual post-effective amendments to previously effective registration statements filed on Form S–6. The Commission estimates that the hour burden for preparing and filing an initial registration statement on Form S– 6 is 45 hours and for preparing and filing a post-effective amendment to a previously effective registration statement filed on Form S–6 is 40 hours. Therefore, we estimate that the total hour burden of preparing and filing registration statements on Form S–6 for all affected UITs is 106,620 hours. We estimate that the cost burden of preparing and filing an initial registration statement on Form S–6 is $33,104 and for preparing and filing a post-effective amendment is $19,862. Therefore, we estimate that the total cost burden of preparing and filing registration statements on Form S–6 for all affected UITs is $67,359,556. Estimates of average burden hours and costs are made solely for the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:11 Mar 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, and are not derived from a comprehensive or even representative survey or study of the costs of Commission rules and forms. Compliance with the collection of information requirements of Form S–6 is mandatory. Responses to the collection of information will not be 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 OMB control number. The public may view the background documentation for this information collection at the following Web site: 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, Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi Pavlik-Simon, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549 or by sending an email to: PRA_Mailbox@ sec.gov.

Extension: Rule 248.30. 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 (the ‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. Rule 248.30 (17 CFR 248.30), under Regulation S–P is titled ‘‘Procedures to PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14151 Safeguard Customer Records and Information; Disposal of Consumer Report Information.’’ Rule 248.30 (the ‘‘safeguard rule’’) requires brokers, dealers, investment companies, and investment advisers registered with the Commission (‘‘registered investment advisers’’) (collectively ‘‘covered institutions’’) to adopt written policies and procedures for administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect customer records and information. The safeguards must be reasonably designed to ‘‘insure the security and confidentiality of customer records and information,’’ ‘‘protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security and integrity’’ of those records, and protect against unauthorized access to or use of those records or information, which ‘‘could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any customer.’’ The safeguard rule’s requirement that covered institutions’ policies and procedures be documented in writing constitutes a collection of information and must be maintained on an ongoing basis. This requirement eliminates uncertainty as to required employee actions to protect customer records and information and promotes more systematic and organized reviews of safeguard policies and procedures by institutions. The information collection also assists the Commission’s examination staff in assessing the existence and adequacy of covered institutions’ safeguard policies and procedures. We estimate that as of the end of 2015, there are 4,176 broker-dealers, 4,041 investment companies, and 11,956 investment advisers registered with the Commission, for a total of 20,173 covered institutions. We believe that all of these covered institutions have already documented their safeguard policies and procedures in writing and therefore will incur no hourly burdens related to the initial documentation of policies and procedures. Although existing covered institutions would not incur any initial hourly burden in complying with the safeguards rule, we expect that newly registered institutions would incur some hourly burdens associated with documenting their safeguard policies and procedures. We estimate that approximately 1200 broker-dealers, investment companies, or investment advisers register with the Commission annually. However, we also expect that approximately 70% of these newly registered covered institutions (840) are affiliated with an existing covered institution, and will rely on an E:\FR\FM\16MRN1.SGM 16MRN1

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION


Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

Upon Written Request, Copy Available From: Securities and Exchange 
Commission, Office of FOIA Services, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 
20549-2736.

Extension:
    Form S-6, SEC File No. 270-181, OMB Control No. 3235-0184.

    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 (the ``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget (``OMB'') a request for extension of the 
previously approved collection of information discussed below.
    The title for the collection of information is ``Form S-6 (17 CFR 
239.16), for Registration under the Securities Act of 1933 of 
Securities of Unit Investment Trusts Registered on Form N-8B-2 (17 CFR 
274.13).'' Form S-6 is a form used for registration under the 
Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) (``Securities Act'') of 
securities of any unit investment trust (``UIT'') registered under the 
Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1 et seq.) (``Investment 
Company Act'') on Form N-8B-2. Section 5 of the Securities Act (15 
U.S.C. 77e) requires the filing of a registration statement prior to 
the offer of securities to the public and that the statement be

effective before any securities are sold. Section 5(b) of the 
Securities Act requires that investors be provided with a prospectus 
containing the information required in a registration statement prior 
to the sale or at the time of confirmation or delivery of the 
securities.
    Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act (15 U.S.C. 77j(a)(3)) 
provides that when a prospectus is used more than nine months after the 
effective date of the registration statement, the information therein 
shall be as of a date not more than sixteen months prior to such use. 
As a result, most UITs update their registration statements under the 
Securities Act on an annual basis in order that their sponsors may 
continue to maintain a secondary market in the units. UITs that are 
registered under the Investment Company Act on Form N-8B-2 file post-
effective amendments to their registration statements on Form S-6 in 
order to update their prospectuses.
    The purpose of Form S-6 is to meet the filing and disclosure 
requirements of the Securities Act and to enable filers to provide 
investors with information necessary to evaluate an investment in the 
security. This information collection differs significantly from many 
other federal information collections, which are primarily for the use 
and benefit of the collecting agency. The information required to be 
filed with the Commission permits verification of compliance with 
securities law requirements and assures the public availability and 
dissemination of the information.
    The Commission estimates that there are approximately 1,340 initial 
registration statements filed on Form S-6 annually and approximately 
1,158 annual post-effective amendments to previously effective 
registration statements filed on Form S-6. The Commission estimates 
that the hour burden for preparing and filing an initial registration 
statement on Form S-6 is 45 hours and for preparing and filing a post-
effective amendment to a previously effective registration statement 
filed on Form S-6 is 40 hours. Therefore, we estimate that the total 
hour burden of preparing and filing registration statements on Form S-6 
for all affected UITs is 106,620 hours. We estimate that the cost 
burden of preparing and filing an initial registration statement on 
Form S-6 is $33,104 and for preparing and filing a post-effective 
amendment is $19,862. Therefore, we estimate that the total cost burden 
of preparing and filing registration statements on Form S-6 for all 
affected UITs is $67,359,556.
    Estimates of average burden hours and costs are made solely for the 
purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, and are not derived from a 
comprehensive or even representative survey or study of the costs of 
Commission rules and forms. Compliance with the collection of 
information requirements of Form S-6 is mandatory. Responses to the 
collection of information will not be 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 OMB 
control number.
