Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 8578 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 31 / Friday, February 14, 2020 / Notices agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of Information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3 and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the CFTC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information listed below. 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. Title: Registration of Foreign Boards of Trade (OMB Control No. 3038–0101). This is a request for extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: Section 738 of the DoddFrank Act amended section 4(b)(1) of the Commodity Exchange Act to provide that the Commission may adopt rules and regulations requiring foreign boards of trade (FBOT) that wish to provide their members or other participants located in the United States with direct access to the FBOT’s electronic trading and order matching system to register with the Commission. Pursuant to this authorization, the CFTC adopted a final rule requiring FBOTs that wish to permit trading by direct access to provide certain information to the Commission in applications for registration and, once registered, to provide certain information to meet quarterly and annual reporting requirements. The rule establishes reporting and/or recordkeeping requirements that are required by Part 48 of the Commission’s regulations and are necessary to ensure that FBOTs registered to provide for trading by direct access meet statutory and regulatory requirements on an initial and ongoing basis. With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites comments on: • Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have a practical use; VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Feb 13, 2020 Jkt 250001 • The accuracy of the Commission’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. All comments must be submitted in English, or if not, accompanied by an English translation. Comments will be posted as received to http:// www.cftc.gov. You should submit only information that you wish to make available publicly. If you wish the Commission to consider information that you believe is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, a petition for confidential treatment of the exempt information may be submitted according to the procedures established in § 145.9 of the Commission’s regulations.1 The Commission reserves the right, but shall have no obligation, to review, pre-screen, filter, redact, refuse or remove any or all of your submission from http://www.cftc.gov that it may deem to be inappropriate for publication, such as obscene language. All submissions that have been redacted or removed that contain comments on the merits of the ICR will be retained in the public comment file and will be considered as required under the Administrative Procedure Act and other applicable laws, and may be accessible under the Freedom of Information Act. Burden Statement Collection 3038–0101—Registration of Foreign Boards of Trade (17 CFR Part 48) The estimate of the burden for this collection for registered FBOTs remains the same. The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to range from two to eight hours per response for submission of required reports. These estimates include the time to locate, compile, validate, and verify and disclose and to ensure such information is maintained. The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows: Estimated number of respondents: 23. Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 374.4 hours. 1 17 PO 00000 CFR 145.9. Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 8,612 hours. Frequency of collection: When a reportable event occurs and quarterly and annually for required reports. There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection. (Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.)
