    Title: Gross Collection of Exchange-Set Margins for Omnibus 
Accounts (OMB Control No. 3038-0026). This is a request for extension 
of a currently approved information collection.
    Abstract: Commission Regulation 1.58 requires futures commission 
merchants to collect exchange-set margin for omnibus accounts on a 
gross, rather than a net, basis. This rule is promulgated pursuant to 
the Commission's rulemaking authority contained in Sections 4c, 4d, 4f, 
4g and 8a of the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 USC 6c, 6d, 6f, 6g and 12a 
    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. The OMB control numbers for the 
CFTC's regulations were published on December 30, 1981. See 46 FR 63035 
(Dec. 30, 1981). The Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment 
period soliciting comments on this collection of information was 
published on May 18, 2011 (76 FR 28754).
    Burden statement: The respondent burden for this collection is 
estimated to average .08 hours per response. These estimates include 
the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and 
utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, 
validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining 
information and disclosing and providing information; adjust the 
existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and 
requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of 
information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: 125.
    Estimated number of responses: 500.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 40 hours.
    Frequency of collection: On occasion.
    Send comments regarding the burden estimated or any other aspect of 
the information collection, including suggestions for reducing the 
burden, to the addresses listed below. Please refer to OMB Control No. 
3038-0026 in any correspondence.
