OMB files this comment in accordance with 5 CFR 1320.11(c). This OMB action is not an approval to conduct or sponsor an information collection under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. This action has no effect on any current approvals. If OMB has assigned this ICR a new OMB Control Number, the OMB Control Number will not appear in the active inventory. For future submissions of this information collection, reference the OMB Control Number provided. Pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.11(c), OMB files this comment on this information collection request (ICR). The agency shall examine public comment in response to the NPRM and will describe in the supporting statement of its next collection any public comments received regarding the collection as well as why (or why it did not) incorporate the commenter’s recommendation. The next submission to OMB must include the draft final rule and information collection instrument (e.g., form). OMB expects that future supporting statements submitted by the CFTC will include detailed tables showing the anticipated number of respondents, burden hours, cost burden,and any marginal changes from the previous package (if applicable). These tables should also summarize the total burden associated with all requirements specified in the package. Summary burden tables should be easily comparable to the burden estimates displayed in ROCIS.

CEA § 21(c)(7) directs SDRs to make swap data available “on a confidential basis pursuant to [CEA §] 8” to certain enumerated domestic authorities and any other person the CFTC determines to be appropriate, which may include certain types of foreign authorities. CEA § 21(d) mandates that, prior to receiving any requested data or information from a swap data repository (“SDR”), an authority seeking SDR swap data access agree in writing to abide by the confidentiality requirements described in CEA § 8. CEA § 8 describes circumstances under which public disclosure of information in the Commission’s possession is permitted and prohibited. The collection is designed to elicit information from authorities seeking SDR swap data access (including information regarding the scope of their jurisdiction and the measures they will have in place to safeguard the confidentiality of SDR swap data) to enable the CFTC to determine whether applicants are appropriate recipients of such data. The collection is designed to alert the Commission to circumstances in which SDR swap data recipients seek to, have or may receive SDR swap data outside the scope of their jurisdiction. Authorities would use SDR swap data for purposes within the scope of their jurisdiction. The information sent to the Commission in proposed § 49.4 would be necessary for the Commission to ensure that SDR data is stored and sent to the Commission properly when an SDR withdraws its registration. The information sent to SEFs, DCMs, reporting counterparties, and third-party servive providers as required by proposed §§ 49.10 and 49.13 would be used by these entities to ensure they have reported SDR data to SDRs according to the Commission’s regulations. .

Swap Data Access Provisions of Part 49 and Certain Other Matters

Changing Regulations
The Commission is proposing amendments to Part 49 of the Commission’s regulations in order to improve the quality of swap data and to streamline regulatory requirements governing data reporting. This supporting statement discusses adjustments to burden hours calculations for Information Collection 3038-0086 to account for modified and new burdens associated with the proposed changes to the regulation. The Commission is also updating the overall burden hours, collection volumes, and costs related to Information Collection 3038-0086, based on updated information related to other collections within Information Collection 3038-0086 that are not being modified by this proposal. For example, the Commission is updating the estimated numbers of each type of entity affected by this collection to accurately reflect the current number of each type of entity. This includes 24 SEFs (previously 25), 3 DCMs that allow execution of swaps (previously 15), 3 SDRs (previously 4), 14 DCOs that clear swaps (not previously included), 103 SDs/MSPs (previously 125), and 1585 non-SD/non-MSP reporting counterparties (previously 703).
