Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 211 / Thursday, October 31, 2019 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES The Commission notes that any foreign regulatory agency that has direct supervisory authority over one or more CSEs and that is responsible for administering the relevant foreign jurisdiction’s margin requirements may also apply for a comparability determination. Further, once a comparability determination is made for a jurisdiction, it will apply for all entities or transactions in that jurisdiction to the extent provided in the determination, as approved by the Commission. To date, the Commission has issued a comparability determination for 3 jurisdictions.11 Accordingly, the Commission estimates that it will receive requests from the 13 remaining jurisdictions within the G20, in addition to Switzerland. In light of its experience in evaluating requests for comparability determinations, the Commission is revising its estimate for the number of burden hours associated with such requests from 10 hours to 40 hours. Accordingly, the respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 14. Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 40. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 560. Frequency of Collection: Once. There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection. Burden Statement—Information Collection for Non-Netting Jurisdictions: The Commission estimates that approximately 54 CSEs may rely on section 23.160(d) of the Final Rule.12 number of CSEs subject to the Commission’s margin rules decreased from 55 to 54. 11 See Comparability Determination for Japan: Margin Requirements for Uncleared Swaps for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants, 81 FR 63376 (Sep. 15, 2016); Comparability Determination for the European Union: Margin Requirements for Uncleared Swaps for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants, 82 FR 48394 (Oct. 13, 2017) (‘‘Margin Comparability Determination for the European Union’’); and Comparability Determination for Australia: Margin Requirements for Uncleared Swaps for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants, 84 FR 12908 (Apr. 3, 2019). The Commission subsequently amended its comparability determination for Japan. See Amendment to Comparability Determination for Japan: Margin Requirements for Uncleared Swaps for Swap Dealers and Major Swap Participants, 84 FR 12074 (Apr. 1, 2019). 12 Currently, there are approximately 107 swap entities provisionally registered with the Commission. The Commission estimates that of the approximately 107 swap entities that are provisionally registered, approximately 54 are CSEs for which there is no Prudential Regulator, and are therefore subject to the Commission’s margin rules. Because all of these CSEs are eligible to use the special provision for non-netting jurisdictions, the Commission estimates that 54 CSEs may rely on VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:38 Oct 30, 2019 Jkt 250001 Furthermore, the Commission estimates that these CSEs would incur an average of 10 annual burden hours to maintain books and records properly documenting that all of the requirements of this exception are satisfied (including policies and procedures ensuring compliance). Accordingly, the respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 54. Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 10. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 540. Frequency of Collection: Once; As needed. There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection. Burden Statement—Information Collection for Non-Segregation Jurisdictions: The Commission estimates that there are eight jurisdictions for which the first two conditions specified above for non-segregation jurisdictions are satisfied and where FCSs and foreign branches of U.S. CSEs that are subject to the Commission’s margin rules may engage in swaps. The Commission estimates that approximately 12 FCSs and foreign branches of U.S. CSEs may rely on section 23.160(e) of the Final Rule in some or all of these jurisdictions. The Commission estimates that each FCS or foreign branch of a U.S. CSE relying on this provision would incur an average of 20 annual burden hours to maintain books and records properly documenting that all of the requirements of this provision are satisfied (including policies and procedures for ensuring compliance) with respect to each jurisdiction as to which they rely on the special provision. Thus, based on the estimate of eight non-segregation jurisdictions, the Commission estimates that each of the approximately 12 FCSs and foreign branches of U.S. CSEs that may rely on this provision will incur an estimated 160 average burden hours per year (i.e., 20 average burden hours per jurisdiction multiplied by 8). Accordingly, the respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows: Estimated Number of Respondents: 12. Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 160. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,920. section 23.160(d) of the Final Rule. Since the publication of the 60-Day Notice, the number of CSEs subject to the Commission’s margin rules decreased from 55 to 54.
