Title: Notification of Pending Legal Proceedings Pursuant to 17 CFR 
1.60 (OMB Control Number 3038-0033). This is a request for extension of 
a currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: Rule 1.60 of the Commission's Part 1 regulations requires 
every designated contract market (``DCM'') and futures commission 
merchant (``FCM'') to submit to the Commodity Futures Trading 
Commission (``Commission'') certain specified information concerning 
pending legal proceedings to which the DCM or FCM is a party or to 
which its property is subject. Rule 37.2 of the same part makes the 
requirement of 1.60 applicable to swap execution facilities (``SEFs''). 
This renewal updates the total requested burden based on available 
reported data.
    The Commission initially estimated that approximately 1,800 
entities would be affected by this rule. The Commission originally 
estimated that 97 entities would be affected by this rule. That number 
was based on the number of active registrants, including 61 FCMs,16 
DCMs, and 20 SEFs.
    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 August 23, 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 47087 (``60-Day Notice'') The Commission 
did not receive any relevant comments on the 60-Day Notice.
    Burden Statement: The respondent burden for this collection is 
estimated to average 0.25 hours per response, once annually. This 
estimate includes providing the Commission with notice and copies of 
specified legal documents.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 97.
    Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 0.25.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 24.25.
    Frequency of Collection: As needed.
    There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs 
associated with this collection.

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

    Dated: October 22, 2021.
Robert Sidman,
Deputy Secretary of the Commission.
