General description of report: This information collection is mandatory and authorized pursuant the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 248(i) & (j), 342, 248(o), 360, and 464). Also, in order to carry out the purposes of the Expedited Funds Availability Act, Public Law 100-86, 101 Stat. 635 (1985) (codified as amended at 12 U.S.C. 4001-4010), the Federal Reserve is given the authority to “regulate any aspect of the payment system.” 12 U.S.C. 4008(c)(1). Because the self-assessments are to be publicly disclosed and because the Federal Reserve will not collect any information pursuant to this information collection beyond what is made publicly available, no confidentiality issue arises with regard to the FR 4102.

Abstract: The FR 4102 was implemented in January 2007 as a result of revisions to the Federal Reserve's Payments System Risk (PSR) policy. Under the revised policy, systemically important payments and settlement systems subject to the Federal Reserve's authority are expected to complete and disclose publicly self-assessments against the principles and minimum standards in the policy. The self-assessment should be reviewed and approved by the system's senior management and board of directors upon completion and made readily available to the public. In addition, a self-assessment should be updated following material changes to the system or its environment and, at a minimum, reviewed by the system every two years.

Current Actions: On April 23, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 21293) seeking public comment for 60 days on the proposal to extend, without revision, the FR4102. The comment period for this notice expired on June 22, 2010. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments.
