AGENCY:

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

ACTION:

SUMMARY:

In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the FDIC may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. As part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, the FDIC invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the proposed extension, without change, of its information collection entitled Regulatory Capital Rules (OMB No. 3064-0153). A copy of previous information collection requests (ICRs) associated with this collection may be obtained by contacting the office listed in the ADDRESSES section of this notice. Previous ICRs are also available at reginfo.gov (http://www.reginfo.gov/​public/​do/​PRAMain).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This notice requests public comment on the FDIC's request for extension of OMB's approval of the Regulatory Capital Rules information collection more fully described below. OMB approved the ICR under emergency procedures for review and clearance in accordance with the PRA. The FDIC is not proposing any changes to the existing ICR at this time. A description of the collection and the current burden estimates follows:

Proposal To Extend the Following Currently Approved Collection of Information

Title: Regulatory Capital Rules.

OMB Number: 3064-0153.

Affected Public: State nonmember banks, state savings associations, and certain subsidiaries of those entities.

Estimated Number of Respondents: Advanced approaches—8; Minimum capital ratios—4,571; Standardized approach—4,571.

Frequency of response: Occasional.

Estimated Time per Response: Varied.

Total Estimated Annual Burden: 737,275 hours.

General Description of Collection: This collection comprises the disclosure and recordkeeping requirements associated with minimum capital requirements and overall capital adequacy standards for insured state nonmember banks, state savings associations, and certain subsidiaries of those entities. The capital standards are consistent with agreements reached by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) in “Basel III: A Global Regulatory Framework for More Resilient Banks and Banking Systems,” and with section 171 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which requires establishment of minimum risk-based and leverage capital requirements, and with section 939A of the Dodd-Frank Act, which requires the use of alternatives to credit ratings for calculating risk-weighted assets. The data is used by the FDIC to evaluate capital before approving various applications by insured depository institutions, to evaluate capital as an essential component in determining safety and soundness, and to determine whether an institution is subject to prompt corrective action provisions.

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.
