ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Department of Commerce, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before June 10, 2019. ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to Jennifer Jessup, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230 (or via the internet at PRAcomments@doc.gov). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should be directed to Rebecca Reuter, (206) 526– 4234 or email rebecca.reuter@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: I. Abstract This request is for extension of a currently approved information collection. The groundfish tagging program provides scientists with information necessary for effective conservation, management, and scientific understanding of the groundfish fishery off Alaska and the Northwest Pacific. The program area includes the Pacific Ocean off Alaska (the Gulf of Alaska, the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Area, and the Alexander Archipelago of Southeast VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:36 Apr 09, 2019 Jkt 247001 Alaska), California, Oregon, and Washington. Fish movement information from recovered tags is used in population dynamics models for stock assessment. There are three general categories of tags. Simple plastic tags (spaghetti tags) are external tags approximately two inches long, printed with code numbers. When a tag is returned, the tag number is correlated with databases of released, tagged fish to determine the net movement and growth rate of the tagged fish. Archival tags are microchips with sensors encased in plastic cylinders that record the depth, temperature or other data, which can be downloaded electronically from the recovered tags. Pop-off satellite tags are programmed to release from the fish and upload archived data (depth, temperature, and approximate geolocation) to passing satellites, therefore data is received independent of the fishery. The groundfish tagging and tag recovery program is part of the fishery resource assessment and data collection that the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) conducts under the Magnuson-Stevens Act authority as codified in 16 U.S.C. 1801(a)(8). II. Method of Collection This is a volunteer program requiring the actual tag from the fish to be returned, along with recovery information. Reporting forms with preaddressed and postage-free envelopes are distributed to processors and catcher vessels. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0276. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission (extension of a currently approved collection). Affected Public: Not-for-profit institutions; State, local, or tribal government; business or other for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 440. Estimated Time per Response: 5 minutes for returning a regular tag, and 20 minutes for returning an internal archival tag. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 89. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $30 in recordkeeping/reporting costs (if the fisherman chooses to return an electronic tag himself instead via a NMFS observer). IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 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. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA,\1\ 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, including each 
proposed extension of an existing 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

a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

    Title: Regulations Establishing and Governing the Duties of Swap 
Dealers and Major Swap Participants (OMB Control No. 3038-0084). This 
is a request for an extension of a currently approved information 
collection.
    Abstract: On April 3, 2012 the Commission adopted Commission 
regulations 23.600 (Risk Management Program), 23.601 (Monitoring of 
Position Limits), 23.602 (Diligent Supervision), 23.603 (Business 
Continuity and Disaster Recovery) 23.606 (General Information: 
Availability for Disclosure and Inspection), and 23.607 (Antitrust 
Considerations) \2\ pursuant to section 4s(j) \3\ of the Commodity 
Exchange Act (``CEA''). The above regulations adopted by the Commission 
would, among other things, require swap dealers (``SD'') \4\ and major 
swap participants (``MSP'') \5\ to develop a risk management program 
(including a plan for business continuity and disaster recovery and 
policies and procedures designed to ensure compliance with applicable 
position limits). The Commission believes that the information 
collection obligations imposed by the above regulations are essential 
to ensuring that swap dealers and major swap participants maintain 
adequate and effective risk management programs and policies and 
procedures to ensure compliance with position limits. 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.
