SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice solicits comments on the collections of information mandated by 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). 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 and revision 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). These regulations adopted by the Commission require, among other things, 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 these 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.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:47 Jun 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 Title: Regulations and Forms Pertaining to the Financial Integrity of the Marketplace (OMB Control No. 3038–0024). This is a request for extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The Commission is the independent federal regulatory agency charged with providing various forms of customer protection so that users of the commodity markets can be assured of the financial integrity of the markets and the intermediaries that they employ in their trading activities. Part 1 of the Commission’s regulations requires, among other things, that commodity brokers—known as futures commission merchants (FCM) or introducing brokers (IB) comply with minimum capital and segregation requirements. In order to monitor compliance with these financial standards, the Commission has required FCMs and IBs to file financial reports with the Commission and with the designated self-regulatory organization (DSRO) of which they are members as well as to report to the Commission should capital levels drop below prescribed minimums. In 2008, the U.S. Congress passed the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008, Public Law 110–246, 122 Stat. 1651, 2189–2204 (2008), also known as the Farm Bill. The Farm Bill provided the Commission with new authority with regard to the regulation of offexchange retail forex transactions. Among other things, it directed the Commission to draft rules effectuating registration provisions for a new category of registrant—the retail foreign exchange dealer, or RFED. Under the terms of the legislation, RFEDs are subject to the same capital requirements as FCMs that are engaged in retail forex transactions, and, therefore, subject to the same reporting requirements. Accordingly, this collection was amended to reflect the financial reporting requirements of the new category of registrant, RFEDs. In 2010, the U.S. Congress passed the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the ‘‘Dodd-Frank Act’’), Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010), giving the Commission the authority to regulate certain swap markets and participants in those markets. Section 731 of the Dodd-Frank Act, amended the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA), 7 U.S.C. 1 et seq., to add, as section 4s(e) thereof, provisions concerning the setting of initial and variation margin requirements for swap dealers (SD) and major swap participants (MSP). In 2016, the Commission finalized the Margin Requirements for Uncleared Swaps for Swap Dealers and Major Swap PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30095 Participants rule to implement those requirements. Specifically, Regulation 23.154(b) require SDs and MSPs that do not have a prudential regulator (CSE) that are using a model to compute initial margin requirements to submit the model for review and approval by the Commission or a registered futures association. CSEs must also notify the Commission upon making certain changes to the model. The information required for the prior written approval of the margin model or for certain changes to such model, is needed to demonstrate that the model satisfies all of the requirements of Regulation 23.154(b). Finally, in 2013, the Commission finalized rules in an effort to prevent unauthorized usage of customer funds by FCMs and RFEDs. The final rules include modifications to the reporting requirements required by the Commission which resulted in changes to the financial statements filed by FCMs and RFEDs and made some of the recordkeeping requirements already contained in this OMB Collection Number 3038–0024 into reporting requirements. These rules added additional recordkeeping requirements by FCMs to assure the segregation of customer funds. This collection, OMB Control No. 3038–0024, is needed for the Commission to continue its financial monitoring of its registrants. The burden hours are being revised to reflect the current number of registrants and updated to reflect more accurate numbers regarding the number of financial reports filed, based on current historical data. 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. On April 9, 2019, the Commission published in the Federal Register notice of the proposed extension of this information collection and provided 60 days for public comment on the proposed extension, 84 FR 14099 (‘‘60-Day Notice’’). The Commission did not receive any comments on the 60-Day Notice. Burden Statement: The Commission is revising its estimate of the burden for this collection for approximately 66 FCMs and RFEDs, 50 CSEs and 1,178 IBs. The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows: Respondents/Affected Entities: FCMs, RFEDs, IBs, SDs, and MSPs that do not have a Prudential Regulator.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Core Principles and Other Requirements for Designated Contract Markets (OMB Control No. 3038–0052). This is a request for a revision of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The Commission has recently amended its Regulation 1.52 to revise the scope and potential frequency of a third-party expert’s evaluation of self-regulatory organizations’ (SRO) financial surveillance programs. The evaluation report requirement is a portion of the existing information collection of requirements for SROs 1 17 PO 00000 CFR 145.9. Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 under Commission Regulation 1.52, including designated contract markets (DCM) and the National Futures Association. The Commission’s rulemaking will not alter the requirement for an SRO to engage an examinations expert to evaluate its supervisory program prior to the initial use of the supervisory program. The Commission, however, is eliminating the requirement that the examinations expert must review the SRO’s ongoing application of its supervisory program during periodic reviews and the analysis of the supervisory program’s design to detect material weaknesses in internal controls during both periodic reviews and the initial review prior to the program’s initial use. The Commission also is revising the frequency of when an SRO must engage an examinations expert. Regulation 1.52 required an SRO to engage an examinations expert at least once every three years to perform such a review. The Commission amended Regulation 1.52 to require an SRO to engage an examinations expert whenever the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) issues new or revised auditing standards that are material to the SRO’s examination of member futures commission merchants (FCM). The amendments further require an SRO to engage an examinations expert at least once every five years even if the SRO determined that the PCAOB did not issue new or revised auditing standards during the previous five-year period that are material to its examinations of member FCMs. The changes to the examinations expert reviews impact the resulting expert reports information collection burden. The information collection is necessary to enhance the ability of the Commission and the designated SRO to identify problematic financial matters in time to avoid market disruptions when an FCM may fail, particularly with respect to the tie-up of customer funds that may result. The Commission, when originally proposing changes to Regulation 1.52, invited comments on its assessment that although the costs associated with obtaining the third-party expert would be reduced by the amendment, the paperwork burden impact of the amended scope of the report would be minimal. The Commission received no comments and has adopted the final rule. However, the Commission has determined that a slight revision of the expected burden hours associated with the information collection is possible due to the changes related to the thirdparty examinations expert report.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Regulations and Forms Pertaining to the Financial Integrity 
of the Marketplace (OMB Control No. 3038-0024). This is a request for 
extension of a currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: The Commission is the independent federal regulatory 
agency charged with providing various forms of customer protection so 
that users of the commodity markets can be assured of the financial 
integrity of the markets and the intermediaries that they employ in 
their trading activities. Part 1 of the Commission's regulations 
requires, among other things, that commodity brokers--known as futures 
commission merchants (FCM) or introducing brokers (IB) comply with 
minimum capital and segregation requirements. In order to monitor 
compliance with these financial standards, the Commission has required 
FCMs and IBs to file financial reports with the Commission and with the 
designated self-regulatory organization (DSRO) of which they are 
members as well as to report to the Commission should capital levels 
drop below prescribed minimums.
    In 2008, the U.S. Congress passed the Food, Conservation, and 
Energy Act of 2008, Public Law 110-246, 122 Stat. 1651, 2189-2204 
(2008), also known as the Farm Bill. The Farm Bill provided the 
Commission with new authority with regard to the regulation of off-
exchange retail forex transactions. Among other things, it directed the 
Commission to draft rules effectuating registration provisions for a 
new category of registrant--the retail foreign exchange dealer, or 
RFED. Under the terms of the legislation, RFEDs are subject to the same 
capital requirements as FCMs that are engaged in retail forex 
transactions, and, therefore, subject to the same reporting 
requirements. Accordingly, this collection was amended to reflect the 
financial reporting requirements of the new category of registrant, 
RFEDs.
    In 2010, the U.S. Congress passed the Wall Street Reform and 
Consumer Protection Act (the ``Dodd-Frank Act''), Public Law 111-203, 
124 Stat. 1376 (2010), giving the Commission the authority to regulate 
certain swap markets and participants in those markets. Section 731 of 
the Dodd-Frank Act, amended the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA), 7 U.S.C. 
1 et seq., to add, as section 4s(e) thereof, provisions concerning the 
setting of initial and variation margin requirements for swap dealers 
(SD) and major swap participants (MSP). In 2016, the Commission 
finalized the Margin Requirements for Uncleared Swaps for Swap Dealers 
and Major Swap Participants rule to implement those requirements. 
Specifically, Regulation 23.154(b) require SDs and MSPs that do not 
have a prudential regulator (CSE) that are using a model to compute 
initial margin requirements to submit the model for review and approval 
by the Commission or a registered futures association. CSEs must also 
notify the Commission upon making certain changes to the model. The 
information required for the prior written approval of the margin model 
or for certain changes to such model, is needed to demonstrate that the 
model satisfies all of the requirements of Regulation 23.154(b).
    Finally, in 2013, the Commission finalized rules in an effort to 
prevent unauthorized usage of customer funds by FCMs and RFEDs. The 
final rules include modifications to the reporting requirements 
required by the Commission which resulted in changes to the financial 
statements filed by FCMs and RFEDs and made some of the recordkeeping 
requirements already contained in this OMB Collection Number 3038-0024 
into reporting requirements. These rules added additional recordkeeping 
requirements by FCMs to assure the segregation of customer funds. This 
collection, OMB Control No. 3038-0024, is needed for the Commission to 
continue its financial monitoring of its registrants. The burden hours 
are being revised to reflect the current number of registrants and 
updated to reflect more accurate numbers regarding the number of 
financial reports filed, based on current historical data.
    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. On April 9, 2019, the Commission 
published in the Federal Register notice of the proposed extension of 
this information collection and provided 60 days for public comment on 
the proposed extension, 84 FR 14099 (``60-Day Notice''). The Commission 
did not receive any comments on the 60-Day Notice.
    Burden Statement: The Commission is revising its estimate of the 
burden for this collection for approximately 66 FCMs and RFEDs, 50 CSEs 
and 1,178 IBs. The respondent burden for this collection is estimated 
to be as follows:
    Respondents/Affected Entities: FCMs, RFEDs, IBs, SDs, and MSPs that 
do not have a Prudential Regulator.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,294.
    Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 62.

[[Page 30096]]

    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 80,837.
    Frequency of Collection: Various. For example, FCMs have both daily 
and monthly financial reporting obligations, annual certified financial 
and compliance report obligations, and periodic notice requirements.
    There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs 
associated with this collection.
