Extension: Form T–3. Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget this request for extension of the previously approved collections of information discussed below. Form T–3 (17 CFR 269.3) is an application for qualification of an indenture under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939 (15 U.S.C. 77aaa et seq.). The information provided under Form T–3 is used by the Commission to determine whether to qualify an indenture relating to an offering of debt securities that is not required to be registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.). Form T–3 is filed on occasion. The VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:23 Jan 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 information required by Form T–3 is mandatory. This information is publicly available on EDGAR. Form T–3 takes approximately 43 hours per response to prepare and is filed by approximately 16 respondents. We estimate that 25% of the 43 hours per response (11 hours) is prepared by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 176 hours (11 hours per response × 16 responses). 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 control number.

The title for the collection of information is ‘‘Form N–6 (17 CFR PO 00000 Frm 00215 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1261 239.17c and 274.11d) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) and under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) registration statement of separate accounts organized as unit investment trusts that offer variable life insurance policies.’’ Form N–6 is the form used by insurance company separate accounts organized as unit investment trusts that offer variable life insurance contracts to register as investment companies under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and/or to register their securities under the Securities Act of 1933. The primary purpose of the registration process is to provide disclosure of financial and other information to investors and potential investors for the purpose of evaluating an investment in a security. Form N–6 also requires separate accounts organized as unit investment trusts that offer variable life insurance policies to provide investors with a prospectus and a statement of additional information (‘‘SAI’’) covering essential information about the separate account when it makes an initial or additional offering of its securities. The Commission estimates that approximately 388 registration statements (8 initial registration statements plus 380 post-effective amendments) are filed on Form N–6 annually. The estimated hour burden per portfolio for preparing and filing an initial registration statement on Form N–6 is 770.25 hours. The estimated annual hour burden for preparing and filing initial registration statements is 6,162 hours (8 initial registration statements annually times 770.25 hours per registration statement). The Commission estimates that the hour burden for preparing and filing a posteffective amendment on Form N–6 is 67.5 hours. The total annual hour burden for preparing and filing posteffective amendments is 25,650 hours (380 post-effective amendments annually times 67.5 hours per amendment). The frequency of response is annual. The total annual hour burden for Form N–6, therefore, is estimated to be 31,812 hours (6,162 hours for initial registration statements plus 25,650 hours for post-effective amendments). The Commission estimates that the cost burden for preparing an initial Form N–6 filing is $26,169 per portfolio and the current cost burden for preparing a post-effective amendment to a previously effective registration statement is $9,493 per portfolio. The Commission estimates that, on an annual basis, 8 portfolios will be referenced in an initial Form N–6 and 380 portfolios will be referenced in a post-effective amendment of Form N–6. E:\FR\FM\01FEN1.SGM 01FEN1 1262 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 22 / Friday, February 1, 2019 / Notices Thus, the total cost burden allocated to Form N–6 would be $3,816,692. The information collection requirements imposed by Form N–6 are mandatory. Responses to the collection of information will not be kept confidential. Estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, and are not derived from a comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of Commission rules and forms.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:23 Jan 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 Form N–5 (17 CFR 239.24 and 274.5) is the form used by small business investment companies (‘‘SBICs’’) to register their securities under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) (‘‘Securities Act’’) and the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) (‘‘Investment Company Act’’). Form N–5 is the registration statement form adopted by the Commission for use by an SBIC that has been licensed as such under the Small Business Investment Act of 1958 or which has received the preliminary approval of the Small Business Administration (‘‘SBA’’) and has been notified by the SBA that the company may submit a license application Form N–5 is an integrated registration form and may be used as the registration statement under both the Securities Act and the Investment Company Act. The purpose of Form N–5 is to meet the filing and disclosure requirements of both the Securities Act and Investment Company Act, and to provide investors with information sufficient to evaluate an investment in an SBIC. The information that is required to be filed with the Commission permits verification of compliance with securities law requirements and assures the public availability and dissemination of the information. The Commission did not receive any filings on Form N–5 in the last three years (and in the three years before that, received only one Form N–5 filing). Nevertheless, for purposes of this PRA, we conservatively estimate that at least one Form N–5 will be filed in the next three years, which translates to about 0.333 filings on Form N–5 per year. The currently approved internal burden of Form N–5 is 352 hours per response. We continue to believe this estimate for Form N–5’s internal hour burden is appropriate. Therefore, the number of currently approved aggregate burden hours, when calculated using the current estimate for number of filings, is about 117 internal hours per year. The currently approved external cost burden of Form N–5 is $30,000 per filing. We continue to believe this estimate for Form N–5’s cost burden is appropriate. Therefore, we estimate that the aggregate cost burden, when calculated using the Commission’s estimate of 0.333 filings per year, is about $10,000 in external costs per year. Estimates of average burden hours and costs are made solely for the purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, and are not derived from a comprehensive or even representative survey or study of the costs of Commission rules and forms. Compliance with the collection of PO 00000 Frm 00216 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information requirements of Form N–5 is mandatory. Responses to the collection of information will not be kept confidential. 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.

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

Extension:
    Form N-6

    Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (the ``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget a request for extension of the previously 
approved collection of information discussed below.
    The title for the collection of information is ``Form N-6 (17 CFR 
239.17c and 274.11d) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et 
seq.) and under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1 et 
seq.) registration statement of separate accounts organized as unit 
investment trusts that offer variable life insurance policies.'' Form 
N-6 is the form used by insurance company separate accounts organized 
as unit investment trusts that offer variable life insurance contracts 
to register as investment companies under the Investment Company Act of 
1940 and/or to register their securities under the Securities Act of 
1933. The primary purpose of the registration process is to provide 
disclosure of financial and other information to investors and 
potential investors for the purpose of evaluating an investment in a 
security. Form N-6 also requires separate accounts organized as unit 
investment trusts that offer variable life insurance policies to 
provide investors with a prospectus and a statement of additional 
information (``SAI'') covering essential information about the separate 
account when it makes an initial or additional offering of its 
securities.
    The Commission estimates that approximately 388 registration 
statements (8 initial registration statements plus 380 post-effective 
amendments) are filed on Form N-6 annually. The estimated hour burden 
per portfolio for preparing and filing an initial registration 
statement on Form N-6 is 770.25 hours. The estimated annual hour burden 
for preparing and filing initial registration statements is 6,162 hours 
(8 initial registration statements annually times 770.25 hours per 
registration statement). The Commission estimates that the hour burden 
for preparing and filing a post-effective amendment on Form N-6 is 67.5 
hours. The total annual hour burden for preparing and filing post-
effective amendments is 25,650 hours (380 post-effective amendments 
annually times 67.5 hours per amendment). The frequency of response is 
annual. The total annual hour burden for Form N-6, therefore, is 
estimated to be 31,812 hours (6,162 hours for initial registration 
statements plus 25,650 hours for post-effective amendments).
    The Commission estimates that the cost burden for preparing an 
initial Form N-6 filing is $26,169 per portfolio and the current cost 
burden for preparing a post-effective amendment to a previously 
effective registration statement is $9,493 per portfolio. The 
Commission estimates that, on an annual basis, 8 portfolios will be 
referenced in an initial Form N-6 and 380 portfolios will be referenced 
in a post-effective amendment of Form N-6.

Thus, the total cost burden allocated to Form N-6 would be $3,816,692.
    The information collection requirements imposed by Form N-6 are 
mandatory. Responses to the collection of information will not be kept 
confidential. Estimates of average burden hours are made solely for the 
purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act, and are not derived from a 
comprehensive or even a representative survey or study of the costs of 
Commission rules and forms. 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 control number.
