SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., 
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, including each proposed extension of an existing 
collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for 
approval. To comply with this requirement, the Commission is publishing 
notice of the proposed extension of the existing collection of 
information listed below. 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.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 44 U.S.C. 3512, 5 CFR 1320.5(b)(2)(i) and 1320.8 (b)(3)(vi).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 
use;
     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 for 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.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See 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 https://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 Information Collection Request 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 20 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 10,000 hours. The respondent burden for 
this collection is estimated to be as follows:
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 20.

[[Page 31218]]

    Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 500 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 10,000 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.
