[FR Doc. 2019–16599 Filed 8–2–19; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 8011–01–P SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION [SEC File No. 270–19, OMB Control No. 3235–0012] Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of FOIA Services, 100 F Street NE, Washington, DC 20549–2736 jspears on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Extension: Rule 15b1–1/Form BD Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (‘‘PRA’’) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) a request for approval of extension of the previously approved collection of information provided for in Rule 15b1–1(17 CFR 240.15b1–1) and Form BD (17 CFR 249.501) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (17 U.S.C. 78a et seq.). Form BD is the application form used by firms to apply to the Commission for registration as a broker-dealer, as required by Rule 15b1–1. Form BD also is used by firms other than banks and registered broker-dealers to apply to the Commission for registration as a municipal securities dealer or a government securities broker-dealer. In addition, Form BD is used to change information contained in a previous Form BD filing that becomes inaccurate. The total industry-wide annual time burden imposed by Form BD is approximately 4,118.07 hours, based on approximately 11,137 responses (183 initial filings + 10,954 amendments). Each application filed on Form BD requires approximately 2.75 hours to complete and each amended Form BD requires approximately 20 minutes to complete. (183 × 2.75 hours = 503.25 hours; 10,954 × 0.33 hours = 3,614.82 hours; 503.25 hours + 3,614.82 hours = 4,118.07 hours.) The staff believes that a broker-dealer would have a Compliance Manager complete and file both applications and amendments on Form BD at a cost of $314/hour. Consequently, the staff estimates that the total internal cost of compliance associated with the annual time burden is approximately $1,293,073.98 per year VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:42 Aug 02, 2019 Jkt 247001 ($314 × 4,118.07). There is no external cost burden associated with Rule 15b1– 1 and Form BD. The Commission uses the information disclosed by applicants in Form BD: (1) To determine whether the applicant meets the standards for registration set forth in the provisions of the Exchange Act; (2) to develop a central information resource where members of the public may obtain relevant, up-to-date information about broker-dealers, municipal securities dealers, and government securities broker-dealers, and where the Commission, other regulators, and SROs may obtain information for investigatory purposes in connection with securities litigation; and (3) to develop statistical information about broker-dealers, municipal securities dealers, and government securities broker-dealers. Without the information disclosed in Form BD, the Commission could not effectively implement policy objectives of the Exchange Act with respect to its investor protection function. Completing and filing Form BD is mandatory in order to engage in brokerdealer activity. Compliance with Rule 15b1–1 does not involve the collection of confidential information. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information under the PRA unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The public may view background documentation for this information collection at the following website: http://www.reginfo.gov. Comments should be directed to: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or by sending an email to: lindsay.m.abate@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) Charles Riddle, Acting Director/ Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Candace Kenner, 100 F Street NE, Washington, DC 20549 or by sending an email to PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov. Comments must be submitted within 30 days of this notice. Dated: July 30, 2019. Jill M. Peterson, Assistant Secretary.
