Control No. 3038-0093.

    Title: Part 40, Provisions Common To Registered Entities (OMB
Control No. 3038-0093). This is a request for extension of a currently
approved information collection.
    Abstract: This collection of information involves the collection
and submission to the Commission of information from registered
entities concerning new products, rules, and rule amendments pursuant
to the procedures outlined in Sec. Sec.  40.2, 40.3, 40.5, 40.6, and
40.10 found in 17 CFR part 40. 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. On March 10,
2020, the Commission published in the Federal Register notice of the
proposed extension of this information collection and provided 60 days
for public comment on the proposed extension, 85 FR 13876 (``60-Day
Notice''). The Commission did not receive any relevant comments on the
60-Day Notice.
    Burden Statement: Registered entities must comply with
certification and approval requirements which include an explanation
and analysis when seeking to implement new products, rules, and rule
amendments, including changes to product terms and conditions. The
Commission's regulations Sec. Sec.  40.2, 40.3, 40.5, 40.6 and 40.10
provide procedures for the submission of rules and rule amendments by
designated contract markets, swap execution facilities, derivatives
clearing organizations, and swap data repositories. They establish the
procedures for submitting the ``written certification'' required by
Section 5c of the Act. In connection with a product or rule
certification, the registered entity must provide a concise explanation
and analysis of the submission and its compliance with statutory
provisions of the Act. Accordingly, new rules or rule amendments must
be accompanied by concise explanations and analyses of the purposes,
operations, and effects of the submissions. This information may be
submitted as part of the same submission containing the required
``written certification.''
