I. Abstract and Request for Comments

NCUA is reinstating its OMB collection number 3133-0152 for its Management Official Interlocks regulation, 12 CFR part 711, which implements the Interlocks Act for federally insured credit unions. The Interlocks Act generally prohibits financial institution management officials from serving simultaneously with two unaffiliated depository institutions or their holding companies. 12 U.S.C. 3201-3208. For credit unions, the Interlocks Act restricts interlocks between credit unions and other types of financial institutions, not between two or more credit unions. 12 U.S.C. 3204(3). NCUA last substantively revised 12 CFR part 711 in 1999, as part of a coordinated interagency effort with other federal financial regulatory agencies. 64 FR 66356-66360, Nov. 26, 1999.

NCUA finds information collection burdens associated with this regulation still apply and is reinstating this OMB collection number 3133-0152. The information collections associated with Part 711 are as follows.

  • Under § 711.3, a credit union may have to maintain records to determine whether the major assets prohibition applies.
  • Under § 711.4(h)(1)(i), a credit union must notify NCUA to obtain approval to have a director in common with a diversified savings and loan holding company.
  • Under § 711.5, a credit union may have to maintain records to comply with the small market share exemption.
  • Under § 711.6(a), a credit union seeking a general exemption to a management official interlocks prohibition in § 711.3 would have to compile information and submit an application to NCUA for approval.

The NCUA requests that you send your comments on this collection to the location(s) listed in the addresses section. Your comments should address: (a) The necessity of the information collection for the proper performance of NCUA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents such as through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. It is NCUA's policy to make all comments available to the public for review.
