Estimated Number of Respondents: 30.Start Printed Page 75675

Estimated Time per Response: 6 hours.

Total Annual Burden: 180 hours.

General Description of Collection: Section 29 of the FDI Act prohibits undercapitalized insured depository institutions from accepting, renewing, or rolling over any brokered deposits. Adequately capitalized institutions may do so with a waiver from the FDIC, while well-capitalized institutions may accept, renew, or roll over brokered deposits without restriction.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Time per Response: 4 hours.

Total Annual Burden: 28 hours.

General Description of Collection: This collection is associated with the FDIC's Management Official Interlocks regulation, 12 CFR Part 348, which implements the Depository Institution Management Interlocks Act (DIMIA). DIMIA generally prohibits bank management officials from serving simultaneously with two unaffiliated depository institutions or their holding companies but allows the FDIC to grant exemptions on request in appropriate circumstances.

3. Title: Foreign Branching and Investment by Insured State Nonmember Banks.

General Description of Collection: The Federal Deposit Insurance (FDI) Act requires state nonmember banks to obtain FDIC consent to establish or operate a branch in a foreign country, or to acquire and hold, directly or indirectly, stock or other evidence of ownership in any foreign bank or other entity. The FDI Act also authorizes the FDIC to impose conditions for such consent and to issue regulations related thereto. This collection is a direct consequence of those statutory requirements.

4. Title: Affiliate Marketing Disclosures/Consumer Opt-Out Notices.

OMB Number: 3064-0149.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks.

Number of Respondents: 978 financial institutions and 198,450 consumers.

Total Estimated Annual Burden: 34,142 hours.

General Description of Collection: Section 624 of the Fair Credit Reporting Act generally provides that, if a person shares certain information about a consumer with an affiliate, the affiliate may not use that information to make or send solicitations to the consumer about its products or services, unless the consumer is given notice and a reasonable opportunity to opt-out of such use of the information and the consumer does not opt-out. The information collections for which the Agencies seek OMB approval are (1) Notices to consumers of the opportunity to opt-out of solicitations from affiliates, and (2) consumer responses to the opt-out notices.

Request for Comment:

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record.
