SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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. The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on April 12, 2019 (84 FR 14922). Title: Swap Data Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements: Pre-Enactment and Transition Swaps (OMB Control No. 3038–0089). This is a request for extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The collection of information is needed to ensure that the CFTC and other regulators have access to data regarding pre-enactment and transition swaps, as required by the Commodity Exchange Act as amended by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘DoddFrank Act’’). The Dodd-Frank Act directed the CFTC to adopt rules providing for the reporting of data relating to swaps entered into before the date of enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act, the terms of which had not expired as of the date of enactment of the DoddFrank Act (‘‘pre-enactment swaps’’) and data relating to swaps entered into on or after the date of enactment of the DoddFrank Act and prior to the compliance date specified in the the CFTC’s final 1 17 PO 00000 CFR 145.9. Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28511 swap data reporting rules (‘‘transition swaps’’). On June 12, 2012, the CFTC adopted regulation 46, which imposes recordkeeping and reporting requirements relating to pre-enactment and historical swaps. Burden Statement: Provisions of CFTC Regulations 46.2, 46.3, 46.4, 46.8, 46.10, and 46.11 result in information collection requirements within the meaning of the PRA. With respect to the ongoing reporting and recordkeeping burdens associated with pre-enactment and transition swaps, the CFTC believes that SDs, MSPs, and non-SD/MSP counterparties incur an annual timeburden of 17,328 hours. This timeburden represents a proportion of the burden responents incur to operate and maintain their swap data recordkeeping and reporting systems. 17 CFR 45 imposes swap recordkeeping and reporting requirements on respondents related to swaps that are not pre-enactment or transition swaps. The CFTC believes that respondents use the same recordkeeping and reporting systems to compy with both parts 45 and 46. The CFTC has computed the estimated burden for 17 CFR 46 by estimating the burden incurred by respondents to operate and maintain their swap data recordkeeping and reporting systems and then estimating the percentage of that burden associated with preenactment and transition swaps. Since the enactment of 17 CFR 45, the vast majority of pre-enactment and transition swaps have been terminated by the parties to the swaps or are otherwise no longer in existence. As 17 CFR 46 only requires respondents to make ongoing reports regarding pre-enactment and transition swaps that continue to be in existence, the number of reports being made pursuant to 17 CFR 46 has declined significantly over time. As the volume of reports made pursuant to 17 CFR 46 is estimated to be very small releative to the estimated volume of reports made pursuant to 17 CFR 45, the Commission’s burden estimate has allocated the vast majority of the estimated burden to operate and maintain respondents’ swap data recordkeeping and reporting systems to the burden estimate associated with 17 CFR 45. Respondents/Affected Entities: Swap Dealers, Major Swap Participants, and other counterparties to a swap transaction (i.e., end-user, non-SD/nonMSP counterparties). Estimated Number of Respondents: 30,125. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 17,328 hours. Frequency of Collection: Ongoing.

unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The Federal 
Register notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on

    Title: Swap Data Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements: Pre-
Enactment and Transition Swaps (OMB Control No. 3038-0089). This is a

entered into on or after the date of enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act 
and prior to the compliance date specified in the the CFTC's final swap 
data reporting rules (``transition swaps''). On June 12, 2012, the CFTC 
adopted regulation 46, which imposes recordkeeping and reporting 
requirements relating to pre-enactment and historical swaps.
