    Title: Rules Relating to Review of National Futures Association

    Decisions in Disciplinary, Membership Denial, Registration, and Member

    Responsibility Actions, OMB Control No. 3038-0043. This is a request

    for extension of a currently approved information collection.

    Abstract: 17 CFR part 171 rules require a registered futures

    association to provide fair and orderly procedures for membership and

    disciplinary actions. The Commission's review of decisions of

    registered futures associations in disciplinary, membership denial,

    registration, and member responsibility actions is governed by Section

    17(h)(2) of the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. Section 21(h)(2). The

    rules establish procedures and standards for Commission review of such

    actions, and the reporting requirements included in the procedural

    rules are either directly required by Section 17 of the Act or are

    necessary to the type of appellate review role Congress intended the

    Commission to undertake when it adopted that provision.

    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. The OMB control numbers for the

    CFTC's regulations

    [[Page 28475]]

    were published on December 30, 1981. See 46 FR 63035 (Dec. 30, 1981).
