SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 Commission'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 August 7, 2015 (80 FR 
47475).
    Title: Information Management Requirements for Registration of 
Foreign Boards of Trade (OMB Control No. 3038-0101). This is a request 
for extension of a currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: Section 738 of the Dodd-Frank Act amended section 4(b) of 
the Commodity Exchange Act to provide that the Commission may adopt 
rules and regulations requiring Foreign Boards of Trade (``FBOTs'') 
that wish to provide their members or other participants located in the 
United States with direct access to the FBOT's electronic trading and 
order matching system to register with the Commission. Pursuant to this 
authorization, the Commission adopted a final rule requiring FBOTs that 
wish to permit trading by direct access to provide certain information 
to the Commission in applications for registration and, once 
registered, to provide certain information to meet quarterly and annual 
reporting requirements.
    Burden Statement: The respondent burden for this collection is 
estimated to range from 1000 hours for the submission of a new 
registration application to two to eight hours per response for 
submission of required reports. These estimates include the time to 
locate, compile, validate, and verify and disclose and to ensure such 
information is maintained.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Foreign Boards of Trade.
    Estimated number of respondents: 27.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Commission notes that the 60-day Notice addressing the 
proposed collection and comment request with respect to foreign 
board of trade registration contained a typographical error in that 
it reflected 271 as the estimated number of respondents. 80 FR 47476 
(August 7, 2015). The correct number, as indicated above, is 27.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 11,756 hours.
    Frequency of collection: Once for new applications, quarterly and 
annually for required reports.

    Authority:  44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

    Dated: October 14, 2015.
Robert N. Sidman,
Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
