OMB Number: 1550-0011.
Form Number: N/A.
Description: This information collection relates to reports and records required by the following regulations: 12 CFR 552.11 (books and records, federal stock associations), 12 CFR 545.96(c) (agency business records, Federal stock associations), 12 CFR 544.8 (communications between members of a Federal mutual savings association), 12 CFR 562.1 (regulatory reporting requirements, each savings association and its affiliates), 12 CFR 563.1 (chartering documents, each savings association), 12 CFR 563.47(e) (pension plans, each savings association or service corporation), 12 CFR 572.6(b) (standard flood hazard determination form, each savings association), 12 CFR 562.4 (audit of savings association, savings and loan holding company, or affiliate), 12 CFR 563.76(c) (offers and sales of securities of a savings association or its affiliates in any office of the savings association), 12 CFR 584.1(f) (books and records of each savings and loan holding company), 12 CFR part 226 (Regulation Z, truth in lending), 12 CFR part 202 (Regulation B, Equal Credit Opportunity Act), 12 CFR part 205 (Regulation E, electronic fund transfers), and 12 CFR part 213 (Regulation M, consumer leasing).
Savings associations use the reports and records that the regulations require for internal management control purposes and examiners use them to determine whether savings associations are being operated safely, soundly, and in compliance with regulations. An absence of the reporting and record keeping requirements would not allow for prudent internal controls or for examiners to determine the accurate performance and condition of savings associations.
