(‘‘Exchange Act’’). Rule 13h–1 and Form 13H under Section 13(h) of the Exchange Act established a large trader reporting framework.2 The framework assists the Commission in identifying and obtaining certain baseline information about traders that conduct a substantial amount of trading activity, as measured by volume or market value, in the U.S. securities markets. The identification, recordkeeping, and reporting framework provides the Commission with a mechanism to identify large traders and obtain additional information on their trading activity. Specifically, the rule requires large traders to identify themselves to the Commission and file certain interim updates with the Commission on Form 13H. Upon receipt of Form 13H, the Commission issues a unique identification number to the large trader, which the large trader then provides to its registered broker-dealers. Certain registered broker-dealers are required to maintain transaction records for each large trader, and are required to report that information to the Commission upon request.3 In addition, certain registered broker-dealers are required to adopt procedures to monitor their customers for activity that would trigger the identification requirements of the rule. The respondents to the collection of information required by Rule 13h-1 and Form 13H are large traders and BILLING CODE 8011–01–P Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request VerDate Sep<11>2014 request for extension of the previously approved collection[s] of information discussed below.

Form 3 must be filed within ten days after the event by which the person becomes a reporting person. Approximately 21,968 insiders file Form 3 annually and it takes approximately 0.50 hours to prepare for a total of 10,984 annual burden hours (0.50 hours per response × 21,968 responses).

Form F–6 (17 CFR 239.36) is a form used by foreign companies to register the offer and sale of American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.). Form F–6 requires disclosure of information regarding the terms of the depository bank, fees charged, and a description of the ADRs. No special information regarding the foreign company is required to be prepared or disclosed, although the foreign company must be one which periodically furnishes information to the Commission. The information is needed to ensure that investors in ADRs have full disclosure of information concerning the deposit agreement and the foreign company. Form F–6 takes approximately 1.35 hour per response to prepare and is filed by 643 respondents annually. We estimate that 25% of the 1.35 hour per response (0.338 hours) is prepared by the filer for a total annual reporting burden of 217 hours (0.338 hours per response x 643 responses). The information provided on Form F–6 is mandatory to best ensure full disclosure of ADRs being issued in the U.S. All information provided to the Commission is available for public review upon request.

Extension:
    Rule 13h-1 and Form 13H

    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 
existing collection of information provided for in Rule 13h-1 (17 CFR 
240.13h-1) and Form 13H--registration of large traders \1\ submitted 
pursuant to Section 13(h) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 
U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (``Exchange Act'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Rule 13h-1(a)(1) defines ``large trader'' as any person that 
directly or indirectly, including through other persons controlled 
by such person, exercises investment discretion over one or more 
accounts and effects transactions for the purchase or sale of any 
NMS security for or on behalf of such accounts, by or through one or 
more registered broker-dealers, in an aggregate amount equal to or 
greater than the identifying activity level or voluntarily registers 
as a large trader by filing electronically with the Commission Form 
13H.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Rule 13h-1 and Form 13H under Section 13(h) of the Exchange Act 
established a large trader reporting framework.\2\ The framework 
assists the Commission in identifying and obtaining certain baseline 
information about traders that conduct a substantial amount of trading 
activity, as measured by volume or market value, in the U.S. securities 
markets.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 64976 (July 27, 
2011), 76 FR 46959 (August 3, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The identification, recordkeeping, and reporting framework provides 
the Commission with a mechanism to identify large traders and obtain 
additional information on their trading activity. Specifically, the 
rule requires large traders to identify themselves to the Commission 
and file certain interim updates with the Commission on Form 13H. Upon 
receipt of Form 13H, the Commission issues a unique identification 
number to the large trader, which the large trader then provides to its 
registered broker-dealers. Certain registered broker-dealers are 
required to maintain transaction records for each large trader, and are 
required to report that information to the Commission upon request.\3\ 
In addition, certain registered broker-dealers are required to adopt 
procedures to monitor their customers for activity that would trigger 
the identification requirements of the rule.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The Commission, pursuant to Rule 17a-25 (17 CFR 240.17a-25), 
currently collects transaction data from registered broker-dealers 
through the Electronic Blue Sheets (``EBS'') system to support its 
regulatory and enforcement activities. The large trader framework 
added two new fields, the time of the trade and the identity of the 
trader, to the EBS system.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The respondents to the collection of information required by Rule 
13h-1 and Form 13H are large traders and

registered broker-dealers. The Commission estimates that the total 
annual time burden associated with Rule 13h-1 and Form 13H is 
approximately 185,200 hours per year. This burden is comprised of 
23,500 hours for initial filings by large traders on Form 13H, 58,500 
hours for updates by large traders, 96,000 hours for broker-dealer 
reporting, and 7,200 hours for broker-dealer monitoring.
    Compliance with Rule 13h-1 is mandatory. The information collection 
under Rule 13h-1 is considered confidential subject to the limited 
exceptions provided by the Freedom of Information Act.\4\

to respond to, a collection of information under the PRA unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number.
