OTS may not conduct or sponsor an information collection, and respondents are not required to respond to an information collection, unless the information collection displays a currently valid OMB control number. As part of the approval process, we invite comments on the following information collection.
Title of Proposal: Application and Termination Notice for Municipal Securities Dealer Principal or Representative.
OMB Number: 1550-0123.
Form Numbers: MSD-5 and MSD-4.
Description: Section 15B(a)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Act) requires, in part, that municipal securities dealers notify their appropriate regulatory agency (ARA) of their activities. This information is required to satisfy the requirements of the Act. The Financial Services Regulatory Relief Act of 2006 provides for the inclusion of the OTS in the definition of an ARA for federal savings associations (FSAs).
The forms are completed by certain FSA employees that act as municipal securities dealer principals or representatives, and are submitted to OTS. OTS reviews the information to monitor registered persons' entry into, and exit from, municipal securities dealer activities. The information contributes to the OTS's understanding of the FSA and helps to facilitate the supervision of the municipal securities dealer activities.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 14.
Estimated Frequency of Response: On occasion.
Estimated Total Burden: 11 hours.
