[[Page 12233]]

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, including each proposed extension of an
existing 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
    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: Commission Rule 16.02 requires Reporting Markets to
report transaction-level trade data and related order information for
each executed transaction. The Commission uses the transaction-level
trade data and related order 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 markets.
    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
Commission, including whether the information will have a practical
     The accuracy of the Commission'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.
    You should submit only information that you wish to make available
publicly. If you wish the Commission to consider information that you
believe is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act,
a petition for confidential treatment of the exempt information may be
submitted according to the procedures established in Sec.  145.9 of the
Commission's regulations.\1\

    \1\ 17 CFR 145.9.

    The Commission reserves the right, but shall have no obligation, to
review, pre-screen, filter, redact, refuse or remove any or all of your
submission from http://www.cftc.gov that it may deem to be
inappropriate for publication, such as obscene language. All
submissions that have been redacted or removed that contain comments on
the merits of the ICR will be retained in the public comment file and
will be considered as required under the Administrative Procedure Act
and other applicable laws, and may be accessible under the Freedom of
Information Act.
    Burden Statement: The Commission is revising its burden estimate
for this collection. The Commission estimates that up to 15 Reporting
Markets could provide daily trade and supporting data reports to the
Commission in the future. The CFTC believes that Reporting Markets
incur an average burden of two hours to compile and submit each report
made pursuant to Commission Rule 16.02. Reporting Markets submit an
average of 250 reports annually. The estimated total annual time-burden
for all Reporting Markets is 7,500 hours. The respondent burden for
this collection is estimated to be as follows:
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 15.
    Estimated Average Burden Hours Per Respondent: 500 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 7,500 hours.
    Frequency of Collection: Daily.
    There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs
associated with this collection.

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

Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
