Agency Information Collection Activities: Extension of Information Collections Under the Dodd-Frank Act, 24688-24690 [2017-11105]

Download as PDF 24688 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 102 / Tuesday, May 30, 2017 / Notices determined that formal consultation under section 7 of the ESA is not required for this action. National Environmental Policy Act In compliance with NOAA policy, the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), and the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR parts 1500– 1508), NMFS determined the issuance of the IHA qualifies to be categorically excluded from further NEPA review. This action is consistent with categories of activities identified in CE B4 of the Companion Manual for NOAA Administrative Order 216–6A, which do not individually or cumulatively have the potential for significant impacts on the quality of the human environment and we have not identified any extraordinary circumstances that would preclude this categorical exclusion. Authorization NMFS has issued an IHA to the NPS at Glacier Bay NP for the harassment of small numbers of harbor seals incidental to conducting monitoring and research studies on glaucous-winged gulls within Glacier Bay NP, Alaska provided the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements are incorporated.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of Information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3 and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the CFTC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information listed below. This notice solicits comments on two ICs contained in OMB Control No. 3038–0081: (A) The filing of an annual report provided for in Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core Principles 1 (part 39 of the Commission Regulations); and, (B) filing of the Subpart C Election Form 1 OMB Control No. 3038–0081 is being retitled to more accurately reflect the information collections covered.

These additional standards are mandatory for SIDCOs and optional for Subpart C DCOs. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a valid OMB control number. An explanation of the ICs and the current burden estimates are provided for below: Title: Derivatives Clearing Organizations, General Regulations and International Standards; OMB Control No. 3038–0081. This is a request for extension of a currently approved OMB Control No. 3038–0081. Abstract: (A) Annual report provided for in Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core Principles. Section 725(c) of the Dodd-Frank Act amended Section 5b(c)(2) of the CEA to allow the Commission to establish regulatory standards for compliance with the DCO core principles. Accordingly, the Commission adopted a final rule to set specific standards for compliance with DCO Core Principles.2 The DCO Final Rule requires the appointment of a CCO, the filing of an annual report and adherence to certain recordkeeping requirements.3 It also allows the Commission to collect information at other times as necessary. The information collected in the annual report pursuant to those regulations is necessary for the Commission to evaluate whether DCOs are complying with Commission regulations. (B) Subpart C Election Form and other reporting and recordkeeping requirements provided for in subpart C, part 39 of the Commission Regulations. In the Derivatives Clearing Organizations and International Standards final rule (SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule),4 the Commission adopted amendments to its regulations 2 See Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core Principles, 76 FR 69334 (November 8, 2011) (DCO Final Rule). 3 These DCO recordkeeping requirements and associated costs are captured in separate proposed rulemakings under separate OMB Control Nos.; specifically, see Risk Management Requirements for Derivatives Clearing Organizations; 76 FR 3698 (Jan. 20, 2011) (OMB Control No. 3038–0076); Information Management Requirements for Derivatives Clearing Organizations, 75 FR 78185 (Dec. 15, 2010) (OMB Control No. 3038–0069); and Financial Resources requirements for Derivatives Clearing Organizations, 75 FR 63113 (Oct. 14, 2010) (OMB Control No. 3038–0066). 4 See Derivatives Clearing Organizations and International Standards, 78 FR 72476 (December 2, 2013) (SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule). E:\FR\FM\30MYN1.SGM 30MYN1 24689 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 102 / Tuesday, May 30, 2017 / Notices to establish additional standards for compliance with the DCO core principles set forth in Section 5b(c)(2) of the CEA for SIDCOs and Subpart C DCOs which are consistent with certain international standards. Specifically, the additional requirements address any remaining gaps between the Commission’s existing regulations and the Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures (‘‘PFMI’’) published by the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures and the Board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions. The SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule also established the process whereby DCO and DCO applicants, respectively, may elect to become Subpart C DCOs subject to the provisions of Subpart C. The election involves filing the Subpart C Election Form contained in appendix B to part 39 of the Commission’s regulations, which involves completing certifications, providing exhibits, and drafting and publishing responses to the PFMI Disclosure Framework and PFMI Quantitative Information Disclosure, as applicable. Additionally, the SIDCOSubpart C DCO Final Rule provides for Commission requests for supplemental information from those requesting Subpart C DCO status; requires amendments to the Subpart C Election Form in the event that a DCO or DCO Applicant, respectively, discovers a material omission or error in, or if there is a material change in, the information provided in the Subpart C Election Form; to submit a notice of withdrawal to the Commission in the event the DCO or DCO applicant determines not to seek Subpart C DCO status prior to such status becoming effective; and procedures by which a Subpart C DCO may rescind its Subpart C DCO status after it has been permitted to take effect. Further, each of these requirements implies recordkeeping that would be produced by a DCO to the Commission on an occasional basis to demonstrate compliance with the rules. The information that would be collected under in subpart C, part 39 of the Commission Regulations is necessary for the Commission to determine whether a DCO meets the Subpart C DCO standards and is likely to be able to maintain compliance with such standards; to evaluate whether SIDCOs and Subpart C DCOs are complying with Commission regulations; and to perform risk analyses with respect to SIDCOs and Subpart C DCOs. With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites comments on: • Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have a practical use; • The accuracy of the Commission’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. All comments must be submitted in English, or if not, accompanied by an English translation. Comments will be posted as received to http:// www.cftc.gov. You should submit only information that you wish to make available publicly. If you wish the Commission to consider information that you believe is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, a petition for confidential treatment of the exempt information may be submitted according to the procedures established in § 145.9 of the Commission’s regulations.5 The Commission reserves the right, but shall have no obligation, to review, pre-screen, filter, redact, refuse or remove any or all of your submission from http://www.cftc.gov that it may deem to be inappropriate for publication, such as obscene language. All submissions that have been redacted or removed that contain comments on the merits of the Information Collection Request will be retained in the public comment file and will be considered as required under the Administrative Procedure Act and other applicable laws, and may be accessible under the Freedom of Information Act. Burden Statement: The total annual time burden for all respondents is estimated to be 18,472 hours. See Appendix A for an individual breakdown for burden for annual reports provided for in Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core Principles.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., 
Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or 
sponsor. ``Collection of Information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) 
and 5 CFR 1320.3 and includes agency requests or requirements that 
members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide 
information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 
U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day 
notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of 
information before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To 
comply with this requirement, the CFTC is publishing notice of the 
proposed collection of information listed below.
    This notice solicits comments on two ICs contained in OMB Control 
No. 3038-0081: (A) The filing of an annual report provided for in 
Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core 
Principles \1\ (part 39 of the Commission Regulations); and, (B) filing 
of the Subpart C Election Form provided for in subpart C, part 39 of 
the Commission Regulations for DCOs that elect to be held to the same 
standards as systemically important DCOs (``SIDCOs'') regulatory 
requirements (``Subpart C DCOs''). These additional standards are 
mandatory for SIDCOs and optional for Subpart C DCOs. An agency may not 
conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, an 
information collection unless it displays a valid OMB control number. 
An explanation of the ICs and the current burden estimates are provided 
for below:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ OMB Control No. 3038-0081 is being retitled to more 
accurately reflect the information collections covered.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Title: Derivatives Clearing Organizations, General Regulations and 
International Standards; OMB Control No. 3038-0081. This is a request 
for extension of a currently approved OMB Control No. 3038-0081.
    Abstract:
    (A) Annual report provided for in Derivatives Clearing Organization 
General Provisions and Core Principles. Section 725(c) of the Dodd-
Frank Act amended Section 5b(c)(2) of the CEA to allow the Commission 
to establish regulatory standards for compliance with the DCO core 
principles. Accordingly, the Commission adopted a final rule to set 
specific standards for compliance with DCO Core Principles.\2\ The DCO 
Final Rule requires the appointment of a CCO, the filing of an annual 
report and adherence to certain recordkeeping requirements.\3\ It also 
allows the Commission to collect information at other times as 
necessary. The information collected in the annual report pursuant to 
those regulations is necessary for the Commission to evaluate whether 
DCOs are complying with Commission regulations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and 
Core Principles, 76 FR 69334 (November 8, 2011) (DCO Final Rule).
    \3\ These DCO recordkeeping requirements and associated costs 
are captured in separate proposed rulemakings under separate OMB 
Control Nos.; specifically, see Risk Management Requirements for 
Derivatives Clearing Organizations; 76 FR 3698 (Jan. 20, 2011) (OMB 
Control No. 3038-0076); Information Management Requirements for 
Derivatives Clearing Organizations, 75 FR 78185 (Dec. 15, 2010) (OMB 
Control No. 3038-0069); and Financial Resources requirements for 
Derivatives Clearing Organizations, 75 FR 63113 (Oct. 14, 2010) (OMB 
Control No. 3038-0066).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (B) Subpart C Election Form and other reporting and recordkeeping 
requirements provided for in subpart C, part 39 of the Commission 
Regulations. In the Derivatives Clearing Organizations and 
International Standards final rule (SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule),\4\ 
the Commission adopted amendments to its regulations

[[Page 24689]]

to establish additional standards for compliance with the DCO core 
principles set forth in Section 5b(c)(2) of the CEA for SIDCOs and 
Subpart C DCOs which are consistent with certain international 
standards. Specifically, the additional requirements address any 
remaining gaps between the Commission's existing regulations and the 
Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures (``PFMI'') published by 
the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures and the Board of 
the International Organization of Securities Commissions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Derivatives Clearing Organizations and International 
Standards, 78 FR 72476 (December 2, 2013) (SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final 
Rule).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule also established the process 
whereby DCO and DCO applicants, respectively, may elect to become 
Subpart C DCOs subject to the provisions of Subpart C. The election 
involves filing the Subpart C Election Form contained in appendix B to 
part 39 of the Commission's regulations, which involves completing 
certifications, providing exhibits, and drafting and publishing 
responses to the PFMI Disclosure Framework and PFMI Quantitative 
Information Disclosure, as applicable. Additionally, the SIDCO-Subpart 
C DCO Final Rule provides for Commission requests for supplemental 
information from those requesting Subpart C DCO status; requires 
amendments to the Subpart C Election Form in the event that a DCO or 
DCO Applicant, respectively, discovers a material omission or error in, 
or if there is a material change in, the information provided in the 
Subpart C Election Form; to submit a notice of withdrawal to the 
Commission in the event the DCO or DCO applicant determines not to seek 
Subpart C DCO status prior to such status becoming effective; and 
procedures by which a Subpart C DCO may rescind its Subpart C DCO 
status after it has been permitted to take effect. Further, each of 
these requirements implies recordkeeping that would be produced by a 
DCO to the Commission on an occasional basis to demonstrate compliance 
with the rules. The information that would be collected under in 
subpart C, part 39 of the Commission Regulations is necessary for the 
Commission to determine whether a DCO meets the Subpart C DCO standards 
and is likely to be able to maintain compliance with such standards; to 
evaluate whether SIDCOs and Subpart C DCOs are complying with 
Commission regulations; and to perform risk analyses with respect to 
SIDCOs and Subpart C DCOs.
    With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites 
comments on:
     Whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the 
Commission, including whether the information will have a practical 
use;
     The accuracy of the Commission's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
     Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information 
on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
    All comments must be submitted in English, or if not, accompanied 
by an English translation. Comments will be posted as received to 
http://www.cftc.gov. You should submit only information that you wish 
to make available publicly. If you wish the Commission to consider 
information that you believe is exempt from disclosure under the 
Freedom of Information Act, a petition for confidential treatment of 
the exempt information may be submitted according to the procedures 
established in Sec.  145.9 of the Commission's regulations.\5\

    The Commission reserves the right, but shall have no obligation, to 
review, pre-screen, filter, redact, refuse or remove any or all of your 
submission from http://www.cftc.gov that it may deem to be 
inappropriate for publication, such as obscene language. All 
submissions that have been redacted or removed that contain comments on 
the merits of the Information Collection Request will be retained in 
the public comment file and will be considered as required under the 
Administrative Procedure Act and other applicable laws, and may be

is estimated to be 18,472 hours.
