SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposal to renew the following currently approved collections of information:

Title: Basel II: Disclosures and Recordkeeping.

OMB Number: 3064-0153.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks and state savings institutions.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 8.

Estimated Average Time per Response: implementation—330 hours; systems maintenance—27.9 hours; disclosures—5.79 hours; control, oversight and verification—11.05 hours; documentation—19 hours; and supervisory approvals—16.82 hours.

Total Annual Burden: 3,284 hours.

General Description of Collection: On December 7, 2007, the FDIC, the Office of the Comptroller, and the Federal Reserve Board (collectively, the “Agencies”) issued the joint final rule titled Risk-Based Capital Standards: Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (final rule) implementing a new risk-based regulatory capital framework for institutions in the United States. The final rule requires certain large or internationally active banks and bank holding companies (BHCs) to (1) adopt a written implementation plan, (2) update that plan for any mergers, (3) obtain prior written approvals for the use of certain approaches for determining risk-weighted assets, and (4) make certain public disclosures regarding their capital ratios, their components, and information on implicit support provided to a securitization. There are no required reporting forms associated with this information collection.Start Printed Page 9916

The Agencies, on August 30, 2012, proposed three rules that would amend this collection: Regulatory Capital Rules: Regulatory Capital, Implementation of Basel III, Minimum Regulatory Capital Ratios, Capital Adequacy, Transition Provisions, and Prompt Corrective Action (77 FR 52792); Regulatory Capital Rules: Standardized Approach for Risk-Weighted Assets; Market Discipline and Disclosure Requirements (77 FR 52888); and Regulatory Capital Rules: Advanced Approaches Risk-based Capital Rules; Market Risk Capital Rule (77 FR 52978). An information collection request to revise and rename the collection on the basis of the three rules was submitted to OMB for review in response to which OMB, on February 1, 2013, filed a comment, requesting that the Agencies resubmit their information collection requests when the proposed rules are finalized. Since the FDIC's collection expires on February 28, 2013, the FDIC is proceeding with the renewal process for the existing collection to ensure its continuation until such time as the proposed rules are finalized and the FDIC resubmits to OMB its request to revise the collection.

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.
