SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Privacy of Consumer Financial Information, OMB Control No.
3038-0055. This is a request for extension of a currently approved
information collection.
    Abstract: Section 124 of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of
2000 (``CFMA'') amends the Commodity Exchange Act (the ``Act'') and
adds a new section 5g to the Act to make the Commission a Federal
functional regulator for purposes of applying the provisions of Title
V, Subtitle A of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (``GLB Act'') addressing
consumer privacy to any futures commission merchant, commodity trading
advisor, commodity pool operator or introducing broker that is subject
to the Commission's jurisdiction with respect to any financial
activity. In general, Title V requires financial institutions to
provide notice to consumers about the institution's privacy policies
and practices, to restrict the ability of a financial institution to
share nonpublic personal information about consumers to nonaffiliated
third parties, and to permit consumers to prevent the institution from
disclosing nonpublic personal information about them to certain non-
affiliated third parties by ``opting out'' of that disclosure. This
rule implements the mandates of section 124 and Title V of the GLB Act.
    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 were published on December 30, 1981. See 46 FR 63035
(Dec. 30, 1981). The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment
period soliciting comments on this collection of information was
published on March 1, 2004 (69 FR 9598-02).
    Burden statement: The respondent burden for this collection is
estimated to average .27 hours per response. These estimates include
the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and
utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting,
validating, verifying information, processing and maintaining
information and disclosing and providing information; adjust the
existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and
requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of
information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: 4,128.
    Estimates number of responses: 317,414.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 85,690 hours.
    Frequency of collection: On Occasion.
    Send comments regarding the burden estimated or any other aspect of
the information collection, including suggestions for reducing the
burden, to the addresses listed below. Please refer to OMB Control No.
