SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: ``Swap Data Repositories; Registration and Reporting 
Requirements (OMB Control No. 3038-0086).'' This is a request for 
renewal of a currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: Section 728 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and 
Consumer Protection Act, Public Law 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010), 
specifically requires the CFTC to establish certain standards for the 
governance, registration, and statutory duties applicable to Swap Data 
Repositories (SDRs). The CFTC established these standards in part 49 of 
the CFTC's regulations.
    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 January 26, 2015 (80 FR 3956). No responsive comments have 
been received.
    Burden statement: The CFTC estimates that the total annual 
respondent burden is:
Registration
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Swap Data Repositories.
    Estimated number of respondents: 6
    Estimated burden per respondent: 400 hours initially, 45 hours 
ongoing, 5 hours total for all respondents annually for deregistration.
    Frequency of collection: Annual and occasional.
    Total annual respondent burden: 2400 hours initially, 275 \2\ hours 
ongoing.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Five hours is being added here to the total annual ongoing 
burden for registration that was not included in the 60-day notice 
of the renewal for collection 3038-0086 (80 FR 3956, Jan. 26, 2015) 
to reflect the estimate that one registered SDR may deregister every 
two years. The burden to deregister is estimated at 10 hours per 
deregistering entity. The total annual ongoing burden for all SDRs 
for registration is now estimated to be 275 hours.
