Rule 19d-2, OMB Control No. 3235-0205, SEC File No. 270-204.
Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (“PRA”) (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 existing collection of information of Rule 19d-2 (17 CFR 240.19d-2) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (“Exchange Act”).
Rule 19d-2 prescribes the form and content of applications to the Commission by persons desiring stays of final disciplinary sanctions and summary action of self-regulatory organizations (“SROs”) for which the Commission is the appropriate regulatory agency.
It is estimated that approximately fifteen respondents will utilize this application procedure annually, with a total burden of 45 hours, based upon past submissions. The staff estimates that the average number of hours necessary to comply with the requirements of Rule 19d-2 is 3 hours.
Based on the most recent available information, the Commission staff estimates that the cost to respondents of complying with the requirements of Rule 19d-2 is $876 per response. Therefore, the Commission staff estimates that the total annual reporting cost per respondent is $876 (1 response/respondent/year × $876 cost/response), for a total annual related cost to all respondents of $13,140 ($876 cost/respondent × 15 respondents).
The Commission may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information subject to the PRA that does not display a valid Office of Management and Budget control number.
