FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tom Guerin, Counsel, Division of Data,

    Title: Large Trader Reporting for Physical Commodity Swaps, (OMB
Control No. 3038-0095). This is a request for extension of a currently
approved information collection.
    Abstract: Part 20 of the Commission's regulations (``Reporting
Rules'') requires clearing organizations and any persons that are
``reporting entities'' to file swaps position data with the Commission.
The Reporting Rules require each clearing organization to submit
clearing member reports to the Commission. The Reporting Rules also
require each reporting entity to submit position reports to the
Commission that indicate the reporting entity's principal and
counterparty positions in cleared and uncleared physical commodity
swaps. Reporting entities are persons that are either ``clearing
members'' or ``swap dealers'' that are otherwise not clearing members.
For purposes of part 20, reporting parties are required to submit data
on positions on a futures equivalent basis so as to allow the
Commission to assess a trader's market impact across differently
structured but linked derivatives instruments and markets. This renewal
updates the total requested burden based on available reported data.
    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 February 24, 2021, 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, 86 FR 11267 (``60-Day
Notice''). The Commission did not receive any comments on the 60-Day
    Burden Statement: The Commission is revising its estimate of the
burden for this collection. The respondent burden for this collection
is estimated to be as follows:
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 5,088.
    Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 12.86.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 65,412.
    Frequency of Collection: On Occasion.
    There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs
associated with this collection.

    Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

    Dated: May 14, 2021.
Robert Sidman,
Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
