SEDAR is a multistep process including: (1) Data Workshop; (2) Assessment Process utilizing webinars; and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop is a data report that compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report that describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a Summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, HMS Management Division, and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and NGO’s; International experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies.

Abstract: Pursuant to Section 14 of the Commodity Exchange Act, members of the public may apply to the Commission to seek damages against PO 00000 1 17 CFR 145.9. Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 37135 Commission registrants for alleged violations of the Act and/or Commission regulations. The legislative intent of the Reparations program was to provide a low-cost, speedy, and effective forum for the resolution of customer complaints and to sanction individuals and firms found to have violated the Act and/or any regulations. In 1984, the Commission promulgated Part 12 of the Commission regulations to administer Section 14. Rule 12.13 provides the standards and procedures for filing a Reparations complaint. Specifically, paragraph (b) describes the form and content requirements of a complaint. CFTC Form 30 mirrors the requirements set forth in paragraph (b). The Commission began utilizing Form 30 in or about 1984. The form was created to assist customers, who are typically pro se and non-lawyers. It was also designed as a way to provide proper notice to respondents of the charges against them. This form is critical to fulfilling this policy goal.2 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 May 11, 2021, the Commission published in the Federal Register a notice of the proposed extension of this information collection and provided 60 days for public comment, at 86 FR 25845 (‘‘60-Day Notice’’). The Commission did not receive any relevant comments on the 60-Day Notice. Burden Statement: The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to be as follows: Respondents/Affected Entities: Commodity futures customers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 24. Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 1.5. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 36. Frequency of Collection: As applicable. There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection. (Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) Dated: July 9, 2021. Robert Sidman, Deputy Secretary of the Commission. [FR Doc. 2021–14960 Filed 7–13–21; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6351–01–P 2 The Commission plans to update its rules to include a web-based version of Form 30 as an additional option for the public to submit reparations complaints online.
