refer to OMB Control No. 3038-0061.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, Federal agencies must obtain 
approval from the Office of Management and Budget (``OMB'') for each 
collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ``Collection of 
Information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3 and 
includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public 
submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. 
Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A), requires 
Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register 
concerning each proposed collection of information before submitting 
the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, 
the CFTC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information 
listed below.
    Title: Regulation 16.02 Daily Trade and Supporting Data Reports 
(OMB Control No. 3038-0061). This is a request for extension of a 
currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: The collection of information is needed to ensure that 
the CFTC has access to transaction-level trade data and related order 
information for each transaction executed on a Reporting Market. The 
Commission analyzes the daily trade and supporting data reports that 
are submitted pursuant to 17 CFR 16.02 to conduct financial, market and 
trade practice surveillance. The Commission uses the collection of 
information to discharge its regulatory responsibilities, including the 
responsibilities to prevent market manipulations and commodity price 
distortions and ensure the financial integrity of its jurisdictional 
    With respect to the collection of information, the CFTC invites 
comments on:
     Whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the CFTC, 
including whether the information will have a practical use;
     The accuracy of the CFTC's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
     Ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of 
the information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of collection of information 
on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
    Burden Statement: CFTC Regulation 16.02 results in information 
collection requirements within the meaning of the PRA. This regulation 
previously required Reporting Markets to incur one-time costs to 
establish systems and processes associated with providing the required 
reports to the CFTC on a daily basis. With respect to the ongoing 
reporting burden associated with submitting the required 16.02 reports, 
the CFTC believes that Reporting Markets incur an average burden of two 
hours to compile and submit each report made pursuant to 16.02. 
Reporting Markets submit an average of 250 reports annually. The 
estimated total annual time-burden for all Reporting Markets is 15,000 
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Reporting Markets.
    Estimated number of respondents: 30.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 15,000 hours.
    Frequency of collection: Ongoing.
    There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs 
associated with this collection.

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