ERISA section 408(b)(19) exempts cross-trading transactions involving the purchase and sale of a security between an account holding assets of a pension plan and any other account managed by the same investment manager from ERISA sections 406(a)(1)(A) and 406(b)(2) prohibitions, provided that certain conditions are satisfied. Regulations 29 CFR 2550.408b–19 provides that policies and procedures for cross-trading under the statutory exemption must: (1) be written in a manner calculated to be understood by the plan fiduciary authorizing crosstrading, (2) be sufficiently detailed to facilitate a periodic review of all crosstrades by a compliance officer designated by the investment manager and a determination by the compliance officer that the cross-trades comply with the investment manager’s written crosstrading policies and procedures, and (3) include, at a minimum: (A) a statement of general policy describing the criteria that will be applied by the investment manager in determining whether execution of a securities transaction as a cross-trade will be beneficial to both parties to the transaction; (B) a description of how the investment manager will determine the price at which the securities are cross-traded, in a manner that is consistent with 17 CFR 270.17a–7(b) and Securities and Exchange Commission interpretations thereunder, including the identity of sources used to establish the price; (C) a description of how the investment manager’s policies and procedures will mitigate any potentially conflicting division of loyalties and responsibilities to the parties involved in any crosstrade transaction; (D) a requirement that the investment manager allocate crosstrades among accounts participating in the cross-trading program in an objective and equitable manner and a SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 238001 PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 description of the policies and procedures that will be used; (E) the identity of the compliance officer responsible for reviewing the investment manager’s compliance with ERISA section 408(b)(19) and its written cross-trading policies and procedures and the compliance officer’s qualifications for this position; (F) the steps to be performed by the compliance officer during its periodic review of the investment manager’s purchases and sales of securities to ensure compliance with the written cross-trading policies and procedures; and (G) a description of the procedures by which the compliance officer will determine whether the requirements of section 408(b)(19) are met. Pension Protection Act section 611(g) authorizes this information collection. See Public Law 109–280 section 611(g)(3). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1210–0130. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on July 31, 2016. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on November 23, 2015 (80 FR 72990). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1210–0130. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: E:\FR\FM\26JYN1.SGM 26JYN1
