The OCC is proposing to extend OMB approval of the following information collection:

Title: (MA)—Management Official Interlocks—12 CFR part 26.

OMB Number: 1557-0196.

Description: The OCC is requesting comment on its proposed extension, without change, of the information collection titled, “(MA)-Management Official Interlocks—12 CFR part 26.”

Under the Interlocks Act, two competing depository institutions generally may not share management officials. However, the OCC has legal authority to implement exemptions to this general prohibition. This information collection is needed to prevent any management official interlock that would result in a monopoly or substantial lessening of competition, and to foster competition between unaffiliated institutions. The OCC uses the information to ensure that a proposed management interlock is permitted under statute, is eligible for an exemption, and does not have an anticompetitive effect. The OCC also uses the information to determine whether it can share a management official with a competing depository institution.

Type of Review: Extension of OMB approval.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit (national banks).

Estimated Number of Respondents: 7.

Estimated Total Annual Responses: 7.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Time per Respondent: 3.66 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 29 hours.Start Printed Page 52832

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless the information collection displays a currently valid OMB control number.
