Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below.
• Rule 15c2-8 Delivery of Prospectus
Rule 15c2-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires broker-dealers to deliver preliminary or final prospectuses to specified persons in association with securities offerings. This requirement ensures that information concerning issuers flows to purchasers of the issuers' securities in a timely fashion. It is estimated that there are approximately 8,000 broker-dealers, any of which potentially may participate in an offering subject to Rule 15c2-8. The Commission estimates that Rule 15c2-8 creates approximately 10,600 burden hours with respect to 120 initial public offerings and 460 other offerings. Please note that 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 control number.
Written comments regarding the above information should be directed to the following persons: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or by sending an e-mail to David_Rostker@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) R.
