Start Preamble

Upon written request, copies available from: U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, Washington, DC 20549-0213.

Extension: Rule 30b1-5, SEC File No. 270-520, OMB Control No. 3235-0577.

Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) (“Act”) the U.S. 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.

The title for the collection of information is “Rule 30b1-5 (17 CFR 270.30b1-5) under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1 et seq.), Quarterly Filing of Schedule of Portfolio Holdings of Registered Management Investment Companies.”

Rule 30b1-5 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 requires registered management investment companies, other than small business investment companies registered on Form N-5, (17 CFR 239.24 and 274.5) to file a quarterly report via the Commission's EDGAR system on Form N-Q (17 CFR 249.332 and 274.130), not more than 60 calendar days after the close of each first and third fiscal quarter, containing their complete portfolio holdings.

The Commission estimates that there are 2,820 management investment companies and series that are governed by the rule. For purposes of this analysis, the burden associated with the requirements of Rule 30b1-5 has been included in the collection of information requirements of Form N-Q, rather than the rule.

The collection of information under rule 30b1-5 is mandatory. The information provided under rule 30b1-5 is not kept confidential. 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.

Please direct general comments regarding the above information to the following persons: (i) Desk Officer for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503 or e-mail to:; and (ii) Lewis W. Walker, Acting Director/CIO, Securities and Exchange Commission, C/O Shirley Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, VA 22312; or send an e-mail to: Comments must be submitted to OMB within 30 days of this notice.
