SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Adaptation of Regulations to Incorporate Swaps-Records of Transactions; Exclusion of Utility Operations Related Swaps with Utility Special Entities from De minimis Threshold for Swaps with Special Entities (OMB Control No. 3038–0090). This is a request for extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act, Pub. L. 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010)) amended the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA) to establish a comprehensive new statutory framework for swaps. These amendments required the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘the Commission’’) to amend several of its regulations to implement the new framework. The information collection obligations imposed by the ‘‘Adaptation of Regulations to Incorporate Swaps’’ final regulations 2 are necessary to implement section 721 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which amended the definitions of futures commission merchant (‘‘FCM’’) and introducing broker (‘‘IB’’) to permit these intermediaries to trade swaps on behalf of customers. They also are necessary to implement section 733 of the Dodd-Frank Act which introduced swap execution facilities (‘‘SEFs’’) as a new trading platform for swaps. As a result of the enactment of sections 721 and 733, the Commission needed to amend certain recordkeeping regulations (§§ 1.31, 1.33, 1.35, 1.37, and 1.39) so that records of swap transactions are maintained analogously 2 Adaptation of Regulations to Incorporate Swaps, 77 FR 66288 (Nov. 2, 2012). VerDate Sep<11>2014 01:53 Jul 01, 2020 Jkt 250001 to how futures transactions are maintained. Further, the ‘‘Exclusion of Utility Operations-Related Swaps With Utility Special Entities from De Minimis Threshold for Swaps With Special Entities’’ 3 regulation amended the Commission’s swap dealer definition to permit a person to exclude ‘‘utility operations-related swaps’’ with ‘‘utility special entities’’ in their de minimis threshold calculations. The regulation requires a person claiming the exclusion to maintain, in accordance with Commission regulation 1.31, any written representations that the person receives from utility special entities related to this exclusion. The information collection burdens associated with these regulations (collectively, the ‘‘Swap Recordkeeping Requirements’’) are restricted to the costs associated with the recordkeeping and reporting requirements that these regulations impose upon affected registrants, registered entities, those registered entities’ members, and other respondents covered by the final rules. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. On April 27, 2020, 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, 85 FR 23331. 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 futures commission merchants, retail foreign exchange dealers, introducing brokers, and members of designated contract markets and swap execution facilities. The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows:4 Estimated Number of Respondents: 13,664. Estimated Annual Burden Hours per Respondent: 163. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,233,722. Frequency of Collection: As needed. 3 Exclusion of Utility Operations-Related Swaps with Utility Special Entities from De Minimis Threshold for Swaps with Special Entities, 79 FR 57767 (Sept. 26, 2014). 4 These estimates represent the aggregate burden for all data associated with the Swap Recordkeeping Requirements in the collection, namely Swap Recordkeeping (Regulation 1.35), Swap Confirmations (Regulation 1.33), and Utility Special Entities (Regulation 1.3). Please refer to the supporting statement for further explanation of burdens associated with each regulatory requirement.
