Download as PDF 59260 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 167 / Monday, August 29, 2016 / Notices Commission has received no comments on the proposed rule change. Section 19(b)(2) of the Act 5 provides that, within 45 days of the publication of notice of the filing of a proposed rule change, or within such longer period up to 90 days as the Commission may designate if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission shall either approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved. The 45th day after publication of the notice for this proposed rule change is August 28, 2016. The Commission is extending this 45-day time period. The Commission finds that it is appropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change. Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,6 designates October 12, 2016, as the date by which the Commission should either approve or disapprove or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change (File Number SR– NYSE–2016–44). For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.7 Robert W. Errett, Deputy Secretary.

The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. Form 15F (17 CFR 249.324) is filed by a foreign private issuer when terminating its Exchange Act reporting obligations pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 12h–6 (17 CFR 240.12h–6). Form 15F requires a foreign private issuer to disclose information that helps investors understand the foreign private issuer’s decision to terminate its Exchange Act reporting obligations and assists the Commission staff in determining whether the filer is eligible to terminate its Exchange Act reporting obligations pursuant to Rule 12h–6. Rule 12h–6 provides a process for a foreign private issuer to exit the Exchange Act registration and reporting regime when there is relatively little U.S. investor interest in its securities. Rule 12h–6 is intended to remove a disincentive for foreign private issuers to register their securities with the Commission by lessening concerns that the Exchange Act registration and reporting system would be difficult to exit once an issuer enters it. We estimate that Form 15F takes approximately 30 hours to prepare and is filed by approximately 30 issuers. We estimate that 25% of the 30 hours per response (7.5 hours per response) is prepared by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 225 hours (7.5 hours per response × 30 responses). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether this proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden imposed by the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 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.

Regulation 12B (17 CFR 240.12b–1 through 12b–37) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (‘‘Exchange Act’’) includes rules governing the registration and periodic reporting requirements under Sections 12(b), 12(g), 13, and 15(d) (15 U.S.C. 78l(b), 78l(g), 78m and 78o(d)) of the Exchange Act. The purpose of the regulation is to set forth guidelines for the uniform preparation of Exchange Act registration statements and reports. Regulation 12B is assigned one burden hour for administrative convenience because the regulation simply prescribes the disclosure that must appear in other filings under the federal securities laws.

Extension: Form 15F
    SEC File No. 270-559, OMB Control No. 3235-0621

    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 (``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.
    Form 15F (17 CFR 249.324) is filed by a foreign private issuer when 
terminating its Exchange Act reporting obligations pursuant to Exchange 
Act Rule 12h-6 (17 CFR 240.12h-6). Form 15F requires a foreign private 
issuer to disclose information that helps investors understand the 
foreign private issuer's decision to terminate its Exchange Act 
reporting obligations and assists the Commission staff in determining 
whether the filer is eligible to terminate its Exchange Act reporting 
obligations pursuant to Rule 12h-6. Rule 12h-6 provides a process for a 
foreign private issuer to exit the Exchange Act registration and 
reporting regime when there is relatively little U.S. investor interest 
in its securities. Rule 12h-6 is intended to remove a disincentive for 
foreign private issuers to register their securities with the 
Commission by lessening concerns that the Exchange Act registration and 
reporting system would be difficult to exit once an issuer enters it. 
We estimate that Form 15F takes approximately 30 hours to prepare and 
is filed by approximately 30 issuers. We estimate that 25% of the 30 
hours per response (7.5 hours per response) is prepared by the filer 
for a total annual reporting burden of 225 hours (7.5 hours per 
response x 30 responses).
    Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether this proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden imposed by the collection of information; (c) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 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 unless it displays a 
currently valid control number.
