The Commission estimates that approximately 380 broker-dealers withdraw from Commission registration annually 1 and, therefore, file a Form BDW via the internet with the Central Registration Depository, a computer system operated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. that maintains information regarding registered broker-dealers and their registered personnel. The 380 brokerdealers that withdraw from registration by filing Form BDW would incur an aggregate annual reporting burden of approximately 380 hours.2 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 to be 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.

This estimate is based on the numbers of forms filed; therefore, the number may include multiple forms per broker-dealer if the broker-dealer’s initial filing was incomplete. In fiscal year (from 10/1 through 9/30) 2014, 454 broker-dealers withdrew from registration. In fiscal year 2015, 327 broker-dealers withdrew from registration.

On March 7, 2017, Chicago Board Options Exchange, Incorporated (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘CBOE’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 a proposed rule change to amend its rules with respect to orders in open outcry to modify the ratios a complex order must meet to be considered eligible for complex order priority and permitted to be expressed in any net price increment that is not be less than $0.01. The Exchange also proposes to amend its rules to provide that if a complex order would trade in open outcry at the same net debit or credit price as another complex order, priority would go first to public customer orders in the Exchange’s complex order book (‘‘COB’’), then to complex order bids and offers represented in the trading crowd, and then to all other orders and quotes in the COB.3 Finally, the Exchange proposes to simplify the definitions of the complex order types that may be made available on a class-by-class basis and remove references to certain specific complex order types that will no longer be defined. The proposed rule change was published for comment in 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 The Exchange has represented that this methodology for prioritizing multiple complex orders for open outcry trading is consistent with the methodology applicable for prioritizing multiple simple orders for open outcry trading and how the Exchange has interpreted and applied complex order priority.

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

Extension:
    Rule 15b6-1 and Form BDW, SEC File No. 270-17, OMB Control No. 
3235-0018.

    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 existing 
collection of information provided for in Rule 15b6-1 (17 CFR 240.15b6-
1), under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (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.
    Registered broker-dealers use Form BDW (17 CFR 249.501a) to 
withdraw from registration with the Commission, the self-regulatory 
organizations, and the states. On average, the Commission estimates 
that it would take a broker-dealer approximately one hour to complete 
and file a Form BDW to withdraw from Commission registration as 
required by Rule 15b6-1. The Commission estimates that approximately 
380 broker-dealers withdraw from Commission registration annually \1\ 
and, therefore, file a Form BDW via the internet with the Central 
Registration Depository, a computer system operated by the Financial 
Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. that maintains information 
regarding registered broker-dealers and their registered personnel. The 
380 broker-dealers that withdraw from registration by filing Form BDW 
would incur an aggregate annual reporting burden of approximately 380 
hours.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This estimate is based on Form BDW data collected over the 
past three years for fully registered broker-dealers. This estimate 
is based on the numbers of forms filed; therefore, the number may 
include multiple forms per broker-dealer if the broker-dealer's 
initial filing was incomplete. In fiscal year (from 10/1 through 9/
30) 2014, 454 broker-dealers withdrew from registration. In fiscal 
year 2015, 327 broker-dealers withdrew from registration. In fiscal 
year 2016, 360 broker-dealers withdrew from registration. (454 + 327 
+ 360) /3 = 380.
    \2\ (380 x 1 hour) = 380 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 to 
be 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.
