Form Number: N/A.

Description: On December 7, 2007, the Office of Thrift Supervision, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation issued the joint final rule titled Risk-Based Capital Standards: Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (rule) implementing a new risk-based regulatory capital framework for institutions in the United States (72 FR 69288). The rule is based on the June 2004 Basel Committee on Banking Supervision's document, “International Convergence of Capital Measurement and Capital Standards: A Revised Framework” (New Accord).

The OTS is now issuing a 30-Day Federal Register Notice to implement Basel II for institutions in the United States. The rule sets forth a new risk-based capital adequacy framework that would require some savings associations and allow other qualifying savings associations to use an internal ratings-based approach to calculate regulatory credit risk capital requirements and advanced measurement approaches to calculate regulatory operational risk capital requirements. Information collection requirements in the proposed rule are found in Appendix F, Sections 21-23, 42, 44, 53, and 71. The collections of information are necessary in order to implement Basel II.
