3235-0556.

    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (``PRA'') (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and 
Exchange Commission (``Commission'') is soliciting comments on the

240.15b11-1) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (``Exchange 
Act'') (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.). The Commission plans to submit this 
existing collection of information to the Office of Management and 
Budget (``OMB'') for extension and approval.
    Rule 15b11-1 provides that a broker or dealer may register by 
notice pursuant to section 15(b)(11)(A) of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 
78o(b)(11)(A)) if it: (1) Is registered with the Commodity Futures 
Trading Commission as a futures commission merchant or an introducing 
broker, as those terms are defined in the Commodity Exchange Act (7 
U.S.C. 1, et seq.); (2) is a member of the National Futures Association

to the form. In addition, the rule provides that if the information 
provided by filing the form is or becomes inaccurate for any reason, 
the broker or dealer shall promptly file an amendment on the form 
correcting such information.
    The Commission staff estimates that the total annual reporting 
burden associated with Rule 15b11-1 and Form BD-N is approximately 
three hours, based on an average of two initial notice registrations 
per year that each take approximately 30 minutes to complete, for one 
hour, plus an average of nine amendments per year that each take 
approximately fifteen minutes to complete, for 2.25 hours, rounded down 
to two hours, for a total of three hours.
    Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the Commission, including whether the information 
shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission's 
estimates of the burden of the proposed 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 under the PRA unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number.
