SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FDIC is proposing to renew, without change, the following information collection.

Title: Interagency Guidance on Asset Securitization Activities.

OMB Number: 3064-0137.

Form Number: None.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks involved in asset securitization activities.

Estimated Number of Responses: 20.

Estimated Time per Response: 7.45 hours.

Total Annual Burden: 149 hours.

General Description of Collection: The collection applies to institutions engaged in asset securitization and consists of a written asset securitization policy, the documentation of fair value of retained interests, and a management information system to monitor securitization activities. Bank management uses this information as the basis for the safe and sound operation of their asset securitization activities and to ensure that they minimize operational risk in these activities. The FDIC uses the information to evaluate the quality of a bank's risk management practices. The FDIC also uses the information to assist banks lacking proper internal supervision of their asset securitization activities with the implementation of corrective action to ensure that the activities are conducted in a safe and sound manner.

At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the collection should be modified prior to submission to OMB for review and approval. Comments submitted in response to this notice also will be summarized or included in the FDIC's request to OMB for renewal of this collection. All comments will become a matter of public record.
