The rule further requires the reporting of certain information if the inter-affiliate exemption from clearing is elected. The Commission will use the information described in this collection and reported pursuant to Commission regulation 50.52 to monitor the use of the inter-affiliate exemption from the Commission’s clearing requirement and to assess any potential market risks associated with such exemption. With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites comments on: • Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Commission, including whether the information will have a practical use; • The accuracy of the Commission’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., 
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 Commission is publishing

person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
    Title: Clearing Exemption for Swaps Between Certain Affiliated 
Entities (OMB Control No. 3038-0104). This is a request for an 
extension of a currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: Section 2(h)(1)(A) of the Commodity Exchange Act requires 
certain entities to submit for clearing certain swaps if they are 
required to be cleared by the Commission. Commission regulation 50.52 
permits certain affiliated entities to elect not to clear inter-
affiliate swaps that otherwise would be required to be cleared, 
provided that they meet certain conditions. The rule further requires 
the reporting of certain information if the inter-affiliate exemption 
from clearing is elected. The Commission will use the information 
described in this collection and reported pursuant to Commission 
regulation 50.52 to monitor the use of the inter-affiliate exemption 
from the Commission's clearing requirement and to assess any potential 
market risks associated with such exemption.
    With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites 
comments on:
     Whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the 
Commission, including whether the information will have a practical 
use;
     The accuracy of the Commission's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
     Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information 
on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
    You should submit only information that you wish to make available 
publicly. If you wish the Commission to consider information that you 
believe is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, 
a petition for confidential treatment of the exempt information may be 
submitted according to the procedures established in Sec.  145.9 of the 
Commission's regulations.\1\
