The OCC is requesting approval on its proposed information collection:

Title: Credit Card Data.

OMB Control Number: To be assigned by OMB.

Description: This collection involves the provision of monthly comprehensive credit card account level data to the OCC. The OCC requires this comprehensive credit card data to obtain a detailed picture of the activities of national bank credit card issuers. The scope of the credit card data includes domestic general purpose, private label, and business card portfolios (excluding corporate and government). Additionally, it includes credit bureau attributes at the account level and portfolio level data. The collection request covers all credit card receivables managed by the largest national banks credit card issuers and their subsidiaries. The credit card account level data requested uses common definitions and data elements for asset quality metrics (delinquencies, losses, etc.), forbearance activities, and segmentation by credit quality risk indicators (such as FICO scores). The credit card portfolio level data request uses common definitions and data elements for portfolio performance metrics not likely to be captured at the Start Printed Page 53102account level. The account level data collection frequency is monthly with credit attributes collected quarterly; and, the portfolio level data collection is quarterly using month-end data for each month in the quarter.

This collection supports OCC's efforts to perform risk-based supervision of large banks by enhancing its benchmarking and analytic capabilities. Comprehensive credit card data allows early warning analysis and benchmarking across the largest federally regulated credit card issuers. A standard set of data elements and definitions allows sound conclusions to be drawn regarding the credit card industry. The data is important and necessary to support supervisory activities to ensure the safety and soundness of the federal banking system.

Type of Review: Regular review.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 17.

Estimated Annual Responses per Respondent: 12.

Estimated Burden per Response: 430 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 87,720 hours.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless the information collection displays a currently valid OMB control number.

Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:

(a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the information shall have practical utility;

(b) The accuracy of the OCC's estimate of the burden of the collection of information;

(c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;

(d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and

(e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
