On September 7, 2005, the OCC published in the Federal Register (70 FR 53274) a notice concerning the renewal of this information collection. The OCC received no public comments and is now submitting its request to OMB for approval.

Title: Customer Complaint Form.

OMB Number: 1557-NEW.

Description: The customer complaint form was developed as a courtesy for those that contact the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency's Customer Assistance Group and wish to file a formal, written complaint. The form allows the consumer to focus its issues and provide a complete picture of their concerns, but is entirely voluntary. It is designed to prevent having to go back to the consumer for additional information, which delays the process. Completion of the form allows the Customer Assistance Group (CAG) to process the complaint more efficiently. The CAG will use the information to create a record of the consumer's contact, including capturing information that can be used to resolve the consumer's issues and provide a database of information that is incorporated into the OCC's supervisory process.

Type of Review: New collection.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.

Number of Respondents: 2,149.

Total Annual Responses: 2,149.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Total Annual Burden Hours: 142.

All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:

(a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility;

(b) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the collection of information;

(c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;

(d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and

(e) Estimates of capital or startup costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
