(‘‘Exchange Act’’). Rule 15c3–3 requires that a brokerdealer that holds customer securities obtain and maintain possession and control of fully-paid and excess margin securities they hold for customers. In addition, the Rule requires that a brokerdealer that holds customer funds make either a weekly or monthly computation to determine whether certain customer funds need to be segregated in a special reserve bank account for the exclusive benefit of the firm’s customers. It also requires that a broker-dealer maintain a written notification from each bank where a Special Reserve Bank Account is held acknowledging that all assets in the account are for the exclusive benefit of the broker-dealer’s customers, and to provide written notification to the Commission (and its designated examining authority) under certain, specified circumstances. Finally, brokerdealers that sell securities futures products (‘‘SFP’’) to customers must provide certain notifications to customers and make a record of any changes of account type. A broker-dealer required to maintain the Special Reserve Bank Account 18 17 PO 00000 CFR 200.30–3(a)(12). Frm 00184 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23955 prescribed by Rule 15c3–3 must obtain and retain a written notification from each bank in which it has a Special Reserve Bank Account to evidence the bank’s acknowledgement that assets deposited in the Account are being held by the bank for the exclusive benefit of the broker-dealer’s customers. In addition, a broker-dealer must immediately notify the Commission and its designated examining authority if it fails to make a required deposit to its Special Reserve Bank Account. Finally, a broker-dealer that effects transactions in SFPs for customers will also have paperwork burdens to make a record of each change in account type. The Commission staff estimates a total annual time burden of 555,604 hours and an aggregate cost of $1,848,465 to comply with the rule. These amounts were adjusted after publication of the 60-day notice to reflect the addition of a previously-omitted information collection and higher postage costs. 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. The public may view 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, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi Pavlik-Simon, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549, or send an email to: PRA_ Mailbox@sec.gov.
