Form SH; OMB Control No. 3235-0646; SEC File No. 270-585.

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 a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below.

Form SH (17 CFR 249.326T) is required to be submitted to the Commission by institutional investment managers subject to the existing Form 13F (CFR 249.325) filing requirements on the first business day of each week in which the institutional investment manager has entered into any new short positions or closed part or all of any short positions with respect to any Section 13(f) (15 U.S.C. 78m(f)) securities except for options. The information provided under Form SH is mandatory and responses will be kept confidential. We estimate that 1,000 institutional investment managers subject to the Form 13F filing requirements will file Form SH to report the entry into short positions with respect to Section 13(f) securities. We estimate that each will file 36 Form SH reports during the nine-month period that Rule 10a-3T (17 CFR 240.10a-3T) will be in effect. We further estimate that each of the 1,000 institutional investment managers will spend an average of 20 hours preparing each Form SH. Therefore the estimated total reporting burden associated with Form SH is 720,000 hours (1,000 respondents × 20 hours per form × 36 forms).

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 send an e-mail to; and (ii) Charles Boucher, 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.
