SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Annual Report for Chief Compliance Officer of Registrants 
(OMB Control No. 3038-0080). This is a request for an extension of a 
currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: On April 3, 2012, the Commission adopted Commission 
regulation 3.3 (Chief Compliance Officer) \2\ under sections 4d(d) and 
4s(k) \3\ of the Commodity Exchange Act (``CEA''). Commission 
regulation 3.3 requires each futures commission merchant (``FCM''),\4\ 
swap dealer (``SD''),\5\ and major swap participant (``MSP'') \6\ to 
designate, by filing a form 8-R, a chief compliance officer who is 
responsible for developing and administering policies and procedures 
that fulfill certain duties of the FCM, SD, or MSP and that are 
reasonably designed to ensure the registrant's compliance with the CEA 
and Commission regulations; establishing procedures for the remediation 
of noncompliance issues identified by the chief compliance officer; 
establishing procedures for the handling, management response, 
remediation, retesting, and closing of noncompliance issues; preparing, 
signing, certifying and filing with the Commission an annual compliance 
report that contains the information specified in the regulations; 
amending the annual report if material errors or omissions are 
identified; and maintaining records of the registrant's compliance 
policies and procedures and records related to the annual report. The 
information collection obligations imposed by Commission regulation 3.3 
are essential to ensuring that FCMs, SDs, and MSPs maintain 
comprehensive policies and procedures that promote compliance with the 
CEA and Commission regulations. In particular, the Commission believes 
that, among other things, these obligations (i) promote compliance 
behavior through periodic self-evaluation, (ii) inform the Commission 
of possible compliance weaknesses, (iii) assist the Commission in 
determining whether the registrant remains in compliance with the CEA 
and Commission regulations, and (iv) help the Commission to assess 
whether the registrant has mechanisms in place to adequately address 
compliance problems that could lead to a failure of the registrant.
