In addition, Form PILOT requires SROs to report transaction volume on the pilot trading system on a quarterly basis. 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 control number. Sections 3(a)(26), 3(a)(27), 3(a)(28), 19(b), 23(a) and 36(a) authorize the Commission to collect information on this Form PILOT from SROs.
