: Under the
PRA, Federal agencies must obtain
approval from the Office of Management
and Budget (OMB) for each collection of
information they conduct or sponsor.
‘‘Collection of Information’’ is defined
in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3
and includes agency requests or
requirements that members of the public
submit reports, keep records, or provide
information to a third party. Section
3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, 44 U.S.C.
3506(c)(2)(A), requires Federal agencies
to provide a 60-day notice in the
Federal Register concerning each
proposed collection of information
before submitting the collection to OMB
for approval. To comply with this
requirement, the CFTC is publishing
notice of the proposed collection of
information listed below. 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
Title: Rules Relating to Review of
National Futures Association Decisions
in Disciplinary, Membership Denial,
Registration, and Member
Responsibility Actions (OMB Control
No. 3038–0043). This is a request for
extension of a currently approved
Abstract: 17 CFR part 171 rules
require a registered futures association
to provide fair and orderly procedures
for membership and disciplinary
actions. The Commission’s review of
decisions of registered futures
associations in disciplinary,
membership denial, registration, and
member responsibility actions is
governed by Section 17(h)(2) of the
Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C.
21(h)(2). The rules establish procedures
and standards for Commission review of
such actions, and the reporting
requirements included in the procedural
rules are either directly required by
Section 17 of the Commodity Exchange
Act or are necessary to the type of
appellate review role Congress intended
the Commission to undertake when it
adopted that provision.
With respect to the collection of
information, the CFTC invites
•Whether the proposed collection of
information is necessary for the proper
performance of the functions of the
Commission, including whether the
information will have a practical use;
•The accuracy of the Commission’s
estimate of the burden of the proposed
collection of information, including the
validity of the methodology and
•Ways to enhance the quality,
usefulness, and clarity of the
information to be collected; and
•Ways to minimize the burden of
collection of information on those who
are to respond, including through the
use of appropriate automated electronic,
mechanical, or other technological
collection techniques or other forms of
information technology; e.g., permitting
electronic submission of responses.
You should submit only information
that you wish to make available
publicly. If you wish the Commission to
consider information that you believe is
exempt from disclosure under the
Freedom of Information Act, a petition
for confidential treatment of the exempt
information may be submitted according
to the procedures established in § 145.9
of the Commission’s regulations.
The Commission reserves the right,
but shall have no obligation, to review,
pre-screen, filter, redact, refuse or
remove any or all of your submission
from https://www.cftc.gov that it may
deem to be inappropriate for
publication, such as obscene language.
All submissions that have been redacted
or removed that contain comments on
the merits of the Information Collection
Request will be retained in the public
comment file and will be considered as
required under the Administrative
Procedure Act and other applicable
laws, and may be accessible under the
Freedom of Information Act.
