The OCC is proposing to extend OMB approval of the following information collection:
Title: Disclosure of Financial and Other Information by National Banks—12 CFR 18.
OMB Number: 1557-0182.
Form Numbers: None.
Abstract: This submission covers an existing regulation and involves no change to the regulation or to the information collections embodied in the regulation. The OCC requests only that OMB renew its approval of the information collections in the current regulation.
This disclosure of information is needed to facilitate informed decisionmaking by existing and potential customers and investors by improving public understanding of, and confidence in, the financial condition of an individual national bank. The disclosed information is used by depositors, security holders, and the general public in evaluating the condition of, and deciding whether to do business with, a particular national bank. Disclosure and increased public knowledge complements OCC's efforts to promote the safety and soundness of national banks and the national banking system.
The information collections contained in part 18 are found in §§ 18.4(c) and 18.8. Section 18.4(c) permits a bank to prepare an optional narrative for inclusion in its annual disclosure statement. Section 18.8 requires that a national bank promptly furnish materials in response to a request.
Type of Review: Extension, without change, of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,450.
