Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 133 / Thursday, July 13, 2017 / Notices between one week and eight weeks of age. Protocols not requiring sedation (mass, morphometrics, core and surface temperatures, metabolic rates) as well as protocols requiring anesthesia (body composition, biopsies, and blood volume analysis) will be conducted on five individuals at all four time points under manual restraint. Metabolic and morphometric measurements will be conducted on a separate cohort of five pups at each of the four time points. The applicant is also proposing to take up to 350 animals for flipper tag reading, thermal imaging, and incidental harassment due to work with conspecifics. Take of seven Weddell seal pups, 15 Weddell seal adult females, and 20 crabeater seals is also requested due to harassment from capturing the Weddell seal pups. Up to two pup mortalities are requested annually, not to exceed three over the two field seasons. The permit would be valid for two years. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, NMFS is forwarding copies of the application to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors.

ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32345 Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) added to the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) new section 2(a)(13), which establishes standards and requirements related to real-time reporting and the public availability of swap transaction and pricing data. Section 2(a)(13) and part 43 of the Commission’s Regulations require reporting parties to publish realtime swap transactions and pricing data to the general public. Without the frequency of reporting set forth in part 43, the Commission would not be able to adequately assess the swap markets and, more importantly, would fail to achieve the frequency of reporting and promotion of increased price discovery in the swaps market which are mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act. Burden Statement: Part 43 of the Commission’s regulations results in three information collection requirements within the meaning of the PRA.1 The first collection of information requirement under part 43 imposes a reporting requirement on registered swap execution facilities (‘‘SEFs’’) or designated contract markets (‘‘DCMs’’) when a swap is executed on a trading facility or on the parties to a swap transaction when the swap is executed bilaterally. The second collection of information requirement under part 43 of the Commission’s regulations creates a public dissemination requirement on registered swap data repositories (‘‘SDRs’’). The third collection of information requirement imposes a recordkeeping requirement for SEFs, DCMs, SDRs and any reporting party (as such term is defined in part 43 of the Commission’s regulations). The Commission notes that rather than the initial estimate of 40 SEFs, there currently are 25 SEFs either registered with the Commission or with registration pending.2 The Commission notes that rather than the initial estimate of 18 DCMs, there currently are 15 DCMs registered with the Commission.3 The Commission notes that rather than the initial estimate of 15 SDRs, there currently are 4 SDRs registered with the Commission.4 Based on the experience gained by the Commission with regard to SDRs, the Commission estimates that rather than the initial estimate of 750 reporting parties who are not swap dealers (‘‘SDs’’) or major swap participants (‘‘MSPs’’), and who contract with third parties to satisfy their reporting obligations, there are 496 such reporting 1 See 77 FR 1182, 1229; 78 FR 32866, 32913. 77 FR at 1229. 3 See 77 FR at 1229. 4 See 77 FR at 1230. 2 See E:\FR\FM\13JYN1.SGM 13JYN1 32346 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 133 / Thursday, July 13, 2017 / Notices parties.5 The Commission estimates that rather than the initial estimate of 250 reporting parties who are not swap dealers (‘‘SDs’’) or major swap participants (‘‘MSPs’’), and who satisfy their reporting obligations themselves, there are 207 such reporting parties.6 The burden hours for each entity category based upon these new estimates are noted in the applicable table below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Real-Time Public Reporting and Block Trade (OMB Control No. 
3038-0070). This is a request for extension of currently approved 
information collections.
    Abstract: Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and 
Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) added to the Commodity 
Exchange Act (CEA) new section 2(a)(13), which establishes standards 
and requirements related to real-time reporting and the public 
availability of swap transaction and pricing data. Section 2(a)(13) and 
part 43 of the Commission's Regulations require reporting parties to 
publish real-time swap transactions and pricing data to the general 
public. Without the frequency of reporting set forth in part 43, the 
Commission would not be able to adequately assess the swap markets and, 
more importantly, would fail to achieve the frequency of reporting and 
promotion of increased price discovery in the swaps market which are 
mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act.
    Burden Statement: Part 43 of the Commission's regulations results 
in three information collection requirements within the meaning of the 
PRA.\1\ The first collection of information requirement under part 43 
imposes a reporting requirement on registered swap execution facilities 
(``SEFs'') or designated contract markets (``DCMs'') when a swap is 
executed on a trading facility or on the parties to a swap transaction 
when the swap is executed bilaterally. The second collection of 
information requirement under part 43 of the Commission's regulations 
creates a public dissemination requirement on registered swap data 
repositories (``SDRs''). The third collection of information 
requirement imposes a recordkeeping requirement for SEFs, DCMs, SDRs 
and any reporting party (as such term is defined in part 43 of the 
Commission's regulations).

    The Commission notes that rather than the initial estimate of 40 
SEFs, there currently are 25 SEFs either registered with the Commission 
or with registration pending.\2\ The Commission notes that rather than 
the initial estimate of 18 DCMs, there currently are 15 DCMs registered 
with the Commission.\3\ The Commission notes that rather than the 
initial estimate of 15 SDRs, there currently are 4 SDRs registered with 
the Commission.\4\ Based on the experience gained by the Commission 
with regard to SDRs, the Commission estimates that rather than the 
initial estimate of 750 reporting parties who are not swap dealers 
(``SDs'') or major swap participants (``MSPs''), and who contract with 
third parties to satisfy their reporting obligations, there are 496 
such reporting

parties.\5\ The Commission estimates that rather than the initial 
estimate of 250 reporting parties who are not swap dealers (``SDs'') or 
major swap participants (``MSPs''), and who satisfy their reporting 
obligations themselves, there are 207 such reporting parties.\6\ The 
burden hours for each entity category based upon these new estimates 
are noted in the applicable table below.

Estimated number of respondents: 207.
Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 139,932 hours.\11\
------------------------------------------------------------------------


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ 2,080 average recurring burden hours per respondent SEF x 25 
registered SEFs = 52,000 total burden hours for all registered SEFs.
    \8\ 2,080 average recurring burden hours per respondent DCM x 15 
registered DCMs = 31,200 total burden hours for all registered DCMs.
    \9\ 6,900 average recurring burden hours per respondent SDR x 4 
registered SDRs = 27,600 total burden hours for all registered SDRs.

respondents = 10,912 total burden hours for all respondents.
    \11\ 676 average recurring burden hours per respondent x 207 
respondents = 139,932 total burden hours for all respondents.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition to the above burden hours for compliance with part 43 
obligations generally, the Commission determined that certain market 
participants would incur burden hours associated with the masking of 
the geographic detail of the underlying assets to a swap in the other 
commodity asset class, and with the election to have a swap transaction 
treated as a block trade or large notional off-facility swap.\12\ The 
Commission initially estimated that respondent SDRs would incur an 
aggregate of 833 annual burden hours in connection with the masking of 
geographic detail of the underlying assets to a swap in the other 
commodity asset class.\13\ Based on the Commission's observation of 
registered SDRs' operations and compliance with part 43's requirements, 
the Commission is increasing this estimate and now estimates that SDRs 
will incur an aggregate of 3,307 annual burden hours in connection with 
the masking of geographic detail of the underlying assets to a swap in 
the other commodity asset class.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See 78 FR 32866, 32913.
    \13\ See 78 FR 32866, 32915 (50,000 other commodity swaps with 
masked locations x 0.0167 hours (one minute) of burden per response 
= 833 total burden hours).
    \14\ 198,022 other commodity swaps with masked locations x 
0.0167 hours (one minute) of burden per response = 3,307 total 
annual burden hours.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission initially estimated that market participants would 
incur an aggregate of 2,167 annual burden hours in connection with the 
election to have a swap transaction treated as a block trade.\15\ Based 
on the Commission's observation of market participants' compliance with 
part 43's requirements, the Commission is increasing this estimate and 
now estimates that market participants will incur an aggregate of 3,648 
annual burden hours in connection with the election to have a swap 
transaction treated as a block trade.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See 78 FR 32866, 32913-14 (125,000 elections by SDs/MSPs + 
5,000 elections by nonSDs/MSPs = 130,000 total annual elections. 
130,000 elections x 0.0167 hours (one minute) of burden per response 
= 2,167 total annual burden hours).
    \16\ 218,428 block trades x 0.0167 hours (one minute) of burden 
per response = 3,648 total annual burden hours.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission initially estimated that market participants would 
incur an aggregate of 2,255 annual burden hours in connection with the 
election to have a swap transaction treated as a large notional off-
facility swap.\17\ Based on the Commission's observation of market 
participants' compliance with part 43's requirements, the Commission is 
increasing this estimate and now estimates that market participants 
will incur an aggregate of 77,230 annual burden hours in connection 
with the election to have a swap transaction treated as a large 
notional off-facility swap.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 78 FR 32866, 32914 (62,500 elections by SDs/MSPs + 
5,000 elections by nonSDs/MSPs = 63,000 total annual elections. 
67,500 elections x 0.0334 hours (two minutes) of burden per response 
= 2,255 total annual burden hours).
    \18\ 2,312,265 large notional off-facility swaps x 0.0334 hours 
(two minutes) of burden per response = 77,230 total annual burden 
hours.
