I. Background and Current Actions
The FDIC's regulation, “Forms, Instructions, and Reports” informs the public where it may obtain forms and instructions for reports, applications and other submittals used by the FDIC and describes certain forms used by the FDIC, including the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report), that are not described elsewhere in FDIC regulations. It also implements requirements of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act (FDICIA), Public Law 102-242 (Dec. 19, 1991), which require the inclusion of “off balance sheet” items in any financial reports from an insured institution to a Federal banking agency and for the FDIC to collect information on small business and small farm lending from insured depository institutions in their annual reports of condition.
This final rule updates the regulation to provide current information. It does not change any regulatory requirement imposed on the public by the FDIC, including any reporting or record keeping requirement. The FDIC is also publishing today in this document, directly following the final rule, a list of forms used by the FDIC that provides form numbers, descriptive titles, Paperwork Reduction Act clearance numbers, and citations to regulations that refer to the forms. This “Forms Used by the FDIC” list will not be codified into the Code of Federal Regulations, but will be periodically updated by the FDIC and made available to the public.
II. Public Comment Waiver and Effective Date
As noted, this final rule updates information in part 304 and does not affect any regulatory requirement imposed by the FDIC on the public. The changes are matters of “agency organization, procedure, or practice” and are thus not subject to the general requirement of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) for notice and comment, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A). The changes are also routine, technical, non-substantive and insignificant in nature and impact. They are also inconsequential to the industry and the public, except to the extent that they correct errors, update information and improve access to information concerning forms, instructions and reports required by the FDIC. Thus, the FDIC finds, for good cause, that the APA notice-and-comment provisions are unnecessary. 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B).
This final rule is also effective immediately, because: (a) The changes are routine, technical, and not substantive; (b) the public does not need a delayed period of time to conform or adjust; and (c) the current part 304 contains inaccurate information which should be corrected as promptly as possible. Therefore, it is determined that good cause exists for making these amendments effective on publication in the Federal Register, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3).
III. Paperwork Reduction Act
This final rule does not create or modify any collection of information pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Consequently, no information has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review.
IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act
A regulatory flexibility analysis under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) is required only when an agency must publish a notice of proposed rulemaking. 5 U.S.C. 603 and 604. As already noted, the FDIC has determined that publication of a notice of proposed rulemaking is not necessary here. Accordingly, the RFA does not require a regulatory flexibility analysis.
V. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act
The Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA) (Pub. L. 104-121) provides generally for agencies to report rules to Congress for review. The reporting requirement is triggered when the FDIC issues a final rule as defined by the APA. 5 U.S.C. 551. Because the FDIC is issuing a final rule as defined by the APA, the FDIC will file the reports required by the SBREFA.
The Office of Management and Budget has determined that this proposal does not constitute a “major” rule as defined by SBREFA.
VI. Assessment of Federal Regulations and Policies on Families
The FDIC has determined that this final rule will not affect family well-being within the meaning of section 654 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 1999, Public Law 105-277, 112 Stat. 2681 (1998).Start List of Subjects

Adoption of Technical AmendmentsStart Amendment Part
For the reasons set forth in the preamble, the FDIC hereby revises part Start Printed Page 18794304 of chapter III of title 12 of the Code of Federal Regulations, as set forth below:End Amendment Part Start Part
PART 304—FORMS, INSTRUCTIONS, AND REPORTS
Part 304 informs the public where it may obtain forms and instructions for reports, applications, and other submittals used by the FDIC, and also describes certain forms that are not described elsewhere in FDIC regulations.
Forms and instructions used in connection with applications, reports, and other submittals used by the FDIC can be obtained by contacting the FDIC Public Information Center (801 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20434; telephone: 800-276-6003 or 202-416-6940), except as noted below in § 304.3. In addition, many forms and instructions can be obtained from FDIC regional offices. A list of FDIC regional offices can be obtained from the FDIC Public Information Center or found at the FDIC's web site at http://www.fdic.gov, or in the directory of FDIC Law, Regulations and Related Acts published by the FDIC.
(a) Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income, Forms FFIEC 031 and 041. Pursuant to section 7(a) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1817(a)), every national bank, state member bank, and insured state nonmember bank is required to file Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (also known as the Call Report) in accordance with the instructions for these reports. All assets and liabilities, including contingent assets and liabilities, must be reported in, or otherwise taken into account in the preparation of, the Call Report. The FDIC uses Call Report data to calculate deposit insurance assessments and monitor the condition, performance, and risk profile of individual banks and the banking industry. Reporting banks must also submit annually such information on small business and small farm lending as the FDIC may need to assess the availability of credit to these sectors of the economy. The report forms and instructions can be obtained from the Division of Supervision, FDIC, Washington, DC 20429.
(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 3064-0052)
(b) Report of Assets and Liabilities of U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks, Form FFIEC 002. Pursuant to section 7(a) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1817(a)), every insured U.S. branch of a foreign bank is required to file a Report of Assets and Liabilities of U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks in accordance with the instructions for the report. All assets and liabilities, including contingent assets and liabilities, must be reported in, or otherwise taken into account in the preparation of the report. The FDIC uses the reported data to calculate deposit insurance assessments and monitor the condition, performance, and risk profile of individual insured branches and the banking industry. Insured branches must also submit annually such information on small business and small farm lending as the FDIC may need to assess the availability of credit to these sectors of the economy. Because the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System collects and processes this report on behalf of the FDIC, the report forms and instructions can be obtained from Federal Reserve District Banks or through the web site of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council,
(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 7100-0032)
(c) Summary of Deposits, Form FDIC 8020/05. Form 8020/05 is a report on the amount of deposits for each authorized office of an insured bank with branches; unit banks do not report. Reports as of June 30 of each year must be submitted no later than the immediately succeeding July 31. The report forms and the instructions for completing the reports will be furnished to all such banks by, or may be obtained upon request from, the Division of Supervision, FDIC, 550 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20429.
(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 3064-0061)
(d) Notification of Performance of Bank Services, Form FDIC 6120/06. Pursuant to Section 7 of the Bank Service Company Act (12 U.S.C. 1867), as amended, FDIC supervised banks must notify the agency about the existence of a service relationship within thirty days after the making of the contract or the performance of the service, whichever occurs first. Form FDIC 6120/06 may be used to satisfy the notice requirement. The form contains identification, location and contact information for the bank, the servicer, and a description of the services provided. In lieu of the form, notification may be provided by letter. Either the form or the letter containing the notice information must be submitted to the regional director—Division of Supervision of the region in which the bank's main office is located.
