Joint notice and request for comment; extension of comment period.
In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the OCC, the Board, the FDIC, and the OTS (collectively, the agencies) may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), of which the agencies are members, approved the agencies' publication for public comment of proposed new regulatory reporting requirements for banks  that qualify for and adopt the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework to calculate their risk-based capital requirement or banks that are in the parallel run stage of qualifying to adopt this proposed framework. This notice extends the comment period on this document for consistency with the extension of the comment period for the notice of proposed rulemaking on the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework, as published elsewhere in today's issue of the Federal Register.
The comment period for the joint notice and request for comment published at 71 FR 55981 (Sept. 25, 2006) is extended until March 26, 2007.
You may submit comments by any of the methods identified in the joint notice on Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities. (See 71 FR 55981, September 25, 2006.)Start Further Info

On September 25, 2006, the agencies published a joint notice and request for comment on the proposed reporting requirements (71 FR 55981). Simultaneously with publication of the information collection notice, the agencies published a proposed rule seeking comment on the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (Basel II NPR) (71 FR 55830). The comment period on the information collection notice and the Basel II NPR ends on January 23, 2007. Elsewhere in today's issue of the Federal Register, the agencies extended the comment period for the Basel II NPR. The agencies have determined that an extension of the comment period on the information collection notice is appropriate for consistency. At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the FFIEC should modify the proposed reporting requirements prior to giving its final approval. The agencies will then submit the proposed reporting requirements to OMB for review and approval and, upon approval, OMB will assign control numbers.Start Signature
