The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for extension and approval. Rule 17f–2(e) requires every member of a national securities exchange, broker, dealer, registered transfer agent, and registered clearing agency (‘‘covered entities’’) claiming an exemption from the fingerprinting requirements of Rule 17f–2 to make and keep current a statement entitled ‘‘Notice Pursuant to Rule 17f–2’’ (‘‘Notice’’) containing the information specified in paragraph (e)(1) to support their claim of exemption. Rule 17f–2(e) contains no filing requirement. Instead, paragraph (e)(2) requires covered entities to keep a copy of the Notice in an easily accessible place at the organization’s principal office and at the office employing the persons for whom exemptions are claimed and to make the Notice available upon request for inspection by the Commission, appropriate regulatory agency (if not the Commission) or other VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:28 Jun 09, 2017 Jkt 241001 designated examining authority. Notices prepared pursuant to Rule 17f–2(e) must be maintained for as long as the covered entity claims an exemption from the fingerprinting requirements of Rule 17f– 2. The recordkeeping requirement under Rule 17f–2(e) assists the Commission and other regulatory agencies with ensuring compliance with Rule 17f–2. We estimate that approximately 75 respondents will incur an average burden of 30 minutes per year to comply with this rule, which represents the time it takes for a staff person at a covered entity to properly document a claimed exemption from the fingerprinting requirements of Rule 17f– 2 in the required Notice and to properly retain the Notice according to the entity’s record retention policies and procedures. The total annual burden for all covered entities is approximately 38 hours (75 entities × .5 hours, rounded up). 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.

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION


Proposed Collection; Comment Request

Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: Securities and Exchange 
Commission, Office of FOIA Services, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 
20549-2736

Extension:
    Rule 17f-2(e); SEC File No. 270-37, OMB Control No. 3235-0031

    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 collection of 
information provided for in Rule 17f-2(e) (17 CFR 240.17f-2(e)) 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.
    Rule 17f-2(e) requires every member of a national securities 
exchange, broker, dealer, registered transfer agent, and registered 
clearing agency (``covered entities'') claiming an exemption from the 
fingerprinting requirements of Rule 17f-2 to make and keep current a 
statement entitled ``Notice Pursuant to Rule 17f-2'' (``Notice'') 
containing the information specified in paragraph (e)(1) to support 
their claim of exemption.
    Rule 17f-2(e) contains no filing requirement. Instead, paragraph 
(e)(2) requires covered entities to keep a copy of the Notice in an 
easily accessible place at the organization's principal office and at 
the office employing the persons for whom exemptions are claimed and to 
make the Notice available upon request for inspection by the 
Commission, appropriate regulatory agency (if not the Commission) or 
other designated examining authority. Notices prepared pursuant to Rule 
17f-2(e) must be maintained for as long as the covered entity claims an 
exemption from the fingerprinting requirements of Rule 17f-2. The 
recordkeeping requirement under Rule 17f-2(e) assists the Commission 
and other regulatory agencies with ensuring compliance with Rule 17f-2.
    We estimate that approximately 75 respondents will incur an average 
burden of 30 minutes per year to comply with this rule, which 
represents the time it takes for a staff person at a covered entity to 
properly document a claimed exemption from the fingerprinting 
requirements of Rule 17f-2 in the required Notice and to properly 
retain the Notice according to the entity's record retention policies 
and procedures. The total annual burden for all covered entities is 
approximately 38 hours (75 entities x .5 hours, rounded up).
    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.
    Please direct your written comments to: Pamela Dyson, Director/
Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi
