    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Title: Process for a Swap Execution Facility or Designated Contract Market to Make a Swap Available to Trade (OMB Control No. 3038-0099). This is a request for extension of a currently approved information collection.

    Abstract: The collection of information is needed to help determine which swaps should be subject to the trade execution requirement under Section 2(h)(8) of the Commodity Exchange Act pursuant to Section 723 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. A SEF or DCM that submits a determination that a swap is available to trade must address at least one of several factors to demonstrate that the swap is suitable for trading pursuant to the trade execution requirement. The Commission uses the collection of information to facilitate the application of the trade execution requirement and the requirements associated with methods of execution under parts 37 and 38 of the Commission's regulations.

    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. On July 22, 2019, the Commission published in the Federal Register notice of the proposed extension of this information collection and provided 60 days for public comment on the proposed extension, 84 FR 35102 (“60-Day Notice”). The Commission did not receive any comments on the 60-Day Notice.

    Burden Statement: The Commission estimates the burden of reviewing the prescribed factors and data to make a determination for this collection to be 16 hours per response.

    Respondents/Affected Entities: SEFs, DCMs.

    Estimated Number of Respondents: 5.

    Estimated Average Burden Hours per Respondent: 16.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 80.
