FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Melissa D’Arcy, Special Counsel, Division of Clearing and Risk, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st Street NW, Washington, DC 20581; (202) 418–5086; email: mdarcy@ cftc.gov, and refer to ‘‘OMB Control No. 3038–0085.’’ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: ‘‘Rule 50.50 End-User Notification of Non-Cleared Swap,’’ (OMB Control No. 3038–0085). This is a request for an extension and revision of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘Dodd-Frank Act’’) amended Section 2(h)(1) of the Commodity Exchange Act (‘‘CEA’’) to provide that it shall be unlawful for any person to engage in a swap unless that person submits such swap for clearing to a derivatives clearing organization if the swap is required to be cleared. However, Section 1 17 2 1,600 × . 58 hour = 928 (the estimated total annual burden hours). CFR 145.9. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 Oct 28, 2019 2(h)(7) of the CEA, as added by the Dodd-Frank Act, also provides that a swap otherwise subject to the clearing requirement is eligible for an elective exception from clearing if one party to the swap is not a financial entity, is using swaps to hedge or mitigate commercial risk, and notifies the Commission, in a manner set forth by the Commission, how it generally meets its financial obligations associated with entering into non-cleared swaps (‘‘EndUser Exception’’). The Commission adopted Commission regulation 39.6 to specify requirements for electing the End-User Exception, including the reporting of certain information to a registered swap data repository (‘‘SDR’’) or the Commission. Following the publication of Commission regulation 39.6, the Commission recodified it as Commission regulation 50.50 (17 CFR 50.50). The information reported and collected under Commission regulation 50.50 is necessary as part of the overall package of swap-related information that must generally be submitted by reporting counterparties to SDRs under the Dodd-Frank Act. The Commission uses this information to assess and monitor the market participants electing the End-User Exception to the swap clearing requirement in order to prevent evasion of the clearing requirement. 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 August 22, 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 43795 (‘‘60Day Notice’’). The Commission received no comments in response to the 60-Day Notice. Accordingly, the Commission continues to believe that the burden estimates published in the 60-Day Notice are appropriate. Burden Statement: The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows: Respondents/Affected Entities: Eligible entities electing the End-User Exception under Commission regulation 50.50. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,600. Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 0.58 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 928 hours.2 Jkt 250001 PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Frequency of Collection: On occasion; annually. There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection. (Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) Dated: October 24, 2019.
