Title: Ownership and Control Reports, Forms 102/102S, 40/40S, and 71 (Trader and Account Identification Reports) (OMB Control No. 3038-0103). This is a request for extension of a currently approved information collection.
Abstract: The Ownership and Control Reports (OCR) rules 
created new information collection requirements via §§ 17.01, 18.04, 18.05, and 20.5. Specifically, § 17.01 provides for the filing of Form 102A, Form 102B and Form 71, as follows:
- Pursuant to § 17.01(a), futures commission merchants (“FCMs”), clearing members, and foreign brokers shall identify new special accounts to the Commission on Form 102A;
- pursuant to § 17.01(b), clearing members shall identify volume threshold accounts to the Commission on Form 102B; and
- pursuant to § 17.01(c), omnibus volume threshold account originators and omnibus reportable sub-account originators shall identify reportable sub-accounts to the Commission on Form 71 when requested via a special call by the Commission or its designee.
Additional reporting requirements arise from § 18.04, which results in the collection of information via Form 40 from and regarding traders who own, hold, or control reportable positions; volume threshold account controllers; persons who own volume threshold accounts; reportable sub-account controllers; and persons who own reportable sub-accounts.
Reporting requirements also arise from § 20.5(a), which requires 102S reporting entities to submit Form 102S for swap counterparty or customer consolidated accounts with reportable positions. In addition, § 20.5(b) requires every person subject to books or records under current § 20.6 to complete a 40S filing after a special call upon such person by the Commission.
In addition to the reporting requirements summarized above, § 18.05 imposes recordkeeping requirements upon: (1) Traders who own, hold, or control a reportable futures or options on futures position; (2) volume threshold account Start Printed Page 33070controllers; (3) persons who own volume threshold accounts; (4) reportable sub-account controllers; and (5) persons who own reportable sub-accounts.
A 60-day notice of intent to renew collection 3038-0103 (the “60-Day Notice”) was published in the Federal Register at 82 FR 12944 (March 8, 2017). In response to the 60-day Notice, the Commission received four comment letters from four entities, namely (a) the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association; (b) the Commercial Energy Working Group; (c) the International Energy Credit Association; and (d) Capital Confirmation, Inc. (non-substantive comment). The comment letters are available through the Commission's Web site at: https://comments.cftc.gov/PublicComments/CommentList.aspx?id=1781.
