SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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. containing two information collections consolidated into OMB Control No. 3038–0081. Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core Principles.2 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.3 The DCO Final Rule requires the appointment of a CCO, the filing of an annual report and adherence to certain recordkeeping requirements.4 The information collected pursuant to those regulations is necessary for the Commission to evaluate whether DCOs are complying with Commission regulations. 2 The 60-day Federal Register notice, 82 FR 24688, May 30, 2017, identified this information collection as ‘‘Annual report provided for in Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core Principles.’’ 3 See Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core Principles, 76 FR 69334 (November 8, 2011) (DCO Final Rule). 4 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). VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:13 Jul 31, 2017 Jkt 241001 Derivatives Clearing Organizations and International Standards.5 In the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule, the Commission adopted amendments to its regulations to establish additional standards for compliance with the DCO core principles set forth in Section 5b(c)(2) of the CEA for systemically important DCOs (‘‘SIDCOs’’) and DCOs that elect to opt-in to the SIDCO regulatory requirements (‘‘Subpart C DCOs’’) which are consistent with certain international standards.6 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 5 The 60-day Federal Register notice, 82 FR 24688, May 30, 2017, identified this information collection as Subpart C Election Form and other reporting and recordkeeping requirements provided for in subpart C, part 39 of the Commission Regulations. 6 See Derivatives Clearing Organizations and International Standards, 78 FR 72476 (December 2, 2013) (SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule). PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35765 under the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule, 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. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. On May 30, 2017, the Commission published in the Federal Register notice of the proposed extension of this information collection and provided 60 days for public comment on the proposed extension, 82 FR 24688 (‘‘60-Day Notice’’). Burden Statement: The Commission is not revising its estimate of the burden for this collection. The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: With respect to the DCO Final Rule, the estimated number of respondents is 12. With respect to the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Rule, the estimated number of respondents is 7. Estimated Average Burden Hours Per Respondent: With respect to the DCO Final Rule, the estimated average burden hours is 80. With respect to the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Rule, the estimated average burden hours is 2,502. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: With respect to the DCO Final Rule, the total annual burden hours is estimated to be 960. With respect to the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Rule, the total annual burden hours is estimated to be 17,512. Frequency of Collection: With respect to the DCO Final Rule, the estimated frequency of collection is annual. With respect to the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Rule, the frequency of collection is annual and occasional. 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.

AGENCY: ACTION: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and regulations implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality, the Department of the Navy (DoN) announces its intent to prepare a supplement to the 2015 Final Mariana Islands Training and Testing (MITT) Environmental Impact Statement/ Overseas Environmental Impact Statement (EIS/OEIS). DATES: Public scoping meetings will not be held, but public comments will be accepted during the scoping period from August 1, 2017 to September 15, 2017. ADDRESSES: The DoN invites scoping comments on the MITT Supplemental EIS/OEIS from all interested parties. Substantive comments may be provided by mail to the address below and through the project Web site at http:// mitt-eis.com/. Comments must be postmarked or received by September 15, 2017, for consideration during the development of the Draft Supplemental EIS/OEIS. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific, Attention: MITT Supplemental EIS/OEIS Project Manager, 258 Makalapa Drive, Suite 100, Pearl Harbor, HI 96860–3134. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Navy will assess the potential environmental impacts associated with ongoing and proposed military readiness activities conducted within the MITT EIS/OEIS Study Area (hereafter known as the ‘‘Study Area’’). The Supplement to the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2015 Final EIS/OEIS is being prepared to support ongoing and future activities conducted at sea and on Farallon de Medinilla (FDM) within the Study Area beyond 2020. Military readiness activities include training and research, development, testing, and evaluation (hereafter known as ‘‘testing’’). The Supplemental EIS/OEIS will include an analysis of training and testing activities using new information available after the release of the 2015 Final MITT EIS/ OEIS. New information includes an updated acoustic effects model, updated marine mammal density data, and other best available science. Proposed activities are generally consistent with those analyzed in the 2015 Final MITT EIS/OEIS and are representative of training and testing activities the DoN has been conducting in the Study Area for decades. The Study Area remains unchanged since the 2015 Final MITT EIS/OEIS. The Study Area includes the existing Mariana Islands Range Complex (MIRC); areas on the high seas to the north and west of the MIRC; a transit corridor between the MIRC and the Hawaii Range Complex, starting at the International Date Line; and Apra Harbor and select DoN pierside and harbor locations. The Study Area includes only the in-water components of the range complex and FDM; land components associated with the range complex are not included in the Study Area. As part of this process the DoN will seek the issuance of regulatory permits and authorizations under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and Endangered Species Act to support training and testing requirements within the Study Area, beyond 2020, thereby ensuring critical Department of Defense requirements are met. Pursuant to 40 CFR 1501.6, the DoN will invite the National Marine Fisheries Service to be a cooperating agency in preparation of the Supplemental EIS/OEIS. E:\FR\FM\01AUN1.SGM 01AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    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. containing two 
information collections consolidated into OMB Control No. 3038-0081.
    Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and Core 
Principles.\2\ 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.\3\ The DCO Final Rule requires the 
appointment of a CCO, the filing of an annual report and adherence to 
certain recordkeeping requirements.\4\ The information collected 
pursuant to those regulations is necessary for the Commission to 
evaluate whether DCOs are complying with Commission regulations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The 60-day Federal Register notice, 82 FR 24688, May 30, 
2017, identified this information collection as ``Annual report 
provided for in Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions 
and Core Principles.''
    \3\ See Derivatives Clearing Organization General Provisions and 
Core Principles, 76 FR 69334 (November 8, 2011) (DCO Final Rule).
    \4\ 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))

2010)(OMB Control No. 3038-0066).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Derivatives Clearing Organizations and International Standards.\5\ 
In the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule, the Commission adopted 
amendments to its regulations to establish additional standards for 
compliance with the DCO core principles set forth in Section 5b(c)(2) 
of the CEA for systemically important DCOs (``SIDCOs'') and DCOs that 
elect to opt-in to the SIDCO regulatory requirements (``Subpart C 
DCOs'') which are consistent with certain international standards.\6\ 
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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ The 60-day Federal Register notice, 82 FR 24688, May 30, 
2017, identified this information collection as Subpart C Election 
Form and other reporting and recordkeeping requirements provided for 
in subpart C, part 39 of the Commission Regulations.
    \6\ 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 the 
SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Final Rule, 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.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number. On May 30, 2017, the Commission 
published in the Federal Register notice of the proposed extension of 
this information collection and provided 60 days for public comment on 
the proposed extension, 82 FR 24688 (``60-Day Notice'').
    Burden Statement: The Commission is not revising its estimate of 
the burden for this collection. The respondent burden for this 
collection is estimated to be as follows:
    Estimated Number of Respondents: With respect to the DCO Final 
Rule, the estimated number of respondents is 12. With respect to the 
SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Rule, the estimated number of respondents is 7.
    Estimated Average Burden Hours Per Respondent: With respect to the 
DCO Final Rule, the estimated average burden hours is 80. With respect 
to the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Rule, the estimated average burden hours is 
2,502.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: With respect to the DCO Final 
Rule, the total annual burden hours is estimated to be 960. With 
respect to the SIDCO-Subpart C DCO Rule, the total annual burden hours 
is estimated to be 17,512.
    Frequency of Collection: With respect to the DCO Final Rule, the 
estimated frequency of collection is annual. With respect to the SIDCO-
Subpart C DCO Rule, the frequency of collection is annual and 
occasional.
    The total annual time burden for all respondents is estimated to be 
18,472 hours.
