Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the extension for three years, without revision, of the following report:

Report title: Written Security Program for State Member Banks

Agency form number: FR 4004

OMB Control number: 7100-0112

Frequency: On occasion

Reporters: State member banks

Annual reporting hours: 35 hours

Estimated average hours per response: 0.5 hours

Number of respondents: 70

General description of report: This recordkeeping requirement is mandatory pursuant to section 3 of the Bank Protection Act [12 U.S.C. § 1882(a)] and Regulation H [12 C.F.R. § 208.61]. Because written security programs are maintained at state member banks, no issue of confidentiality under the Freedom of Information Act normally arises. However, copies of such documents included in examination work papers would, in such form, be confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the Freedom of Information Act [5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(8)].

Abstract: Each state member bank must develop and implement a written security program and maintain it in the Start Printed Page 7040bank's records. This program should include a requirement to install security devices and should establish procedures that satisfy minimum standards in the regulation, with the security officer determining the need for additional security devices and procedures based on the location of the banking office. There is no formal reporting form and the information is not submitted to the Federal Reserve.

Current Actions: On December 4, 2006, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (71 FR 70392) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the Written Security Program for State Member Banks. The comment period for this notice expired on February 2, 2007. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments.
