Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is adopting a final rule to rescind and remove regulations for securities of State savings associations and all references thereto, and revise regulations for securities of nonmember insured banks, to extend their applicability to State savings associations. The regulations revised in this rule were included in the regulations that were transferred to the FDIC from the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) on July 21, 2011, in connection with the implementation of applicable provisions of Title III of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). The FDIC received no comments on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking published on April 21, 2014 and is adopting it as a final rule with minor technical changes. As a result, all State nonmember banks and State savings associations having securities registered pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) will be subject to the disclosure and filing requirements in FDIC regulations.

DATES:

The Final Rule is effective November 24, 2014.

I. Background

The Dodd-Frank Act

The Dodd-Frank Act, signed into law on July 21, 2010, provided for a substantial reorganization of the regulation of State and Federal savings associations and their holding companies.[1] Beginning July 21, 2011, the transfer date established by section 311 of the Dodd-Frank Act,[2] the powers, duties, and functions formerly performed by the OTS were divided among the FDIC, as to State savings associations, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (“OCC”), as to Federal savings associations, and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (“Federal Reserve Board”), as to savings and loan holding companies. Section 316(b) of the Dodd-Frank Act [3] provides the manner of treatment for all orders, resolutions, determinations, regulations, and advisory materials that had been issued, made, prescribed, or allowed to become effective by the OTS. The section provides that if such regulatory issuances were in effect on the day before the transfer date, they continue in effect and are enforceable by or against the appropriate successor agency until they are modified, terminated, set aside, or superseded in accordance with applicable law by such successor agency, by any court of competent jurisdiction, or by operation of law.

Section 316(c) of the Dodd-Frank Act [4] further directed the FDIC and the OCC to consult with one another and to publish a list of the continued OTS regulations which would be enforced by each agency. On June 14, 2011, the FDIC's Board of Directors (“Board”) approved a “List of OTS Regulations to be Enforced by the OCC and the FDIC Pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.” This list was published by the FDIC and Start Printed Page 63499the OCC as a Joint Notice in the Federal Register on July 6, 2011.[5]

Although section 312(b)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Dodd-Frank Act [6] granted the OCC rulemaking authority relating to both State and Federal savings associations, nothing in the Dodd-Frank Act affected the FDIC's existing authority to issue regulations under the FDI Act and other laws as the “appropriate Federal banking agency” or under similar statutory terminology. Section 312(c) of the Dodd-Frank Act amended section 3(q) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act,[7] and designated the FDIC as the “appropriate Federal banking agency” for State savings associations. As a result, when the FDIC acts as the designated “appropriate Federal banking agency” (or under similar terminology) for State savings associations, as it does here, the FDIC is authorized to issue, modify, and rescind regulations involving such associations.

As noted, on June 14, 2011, operating pursuant to this authority, the Board reissued and redesignated certain regulations transferred from the former OTS. These transferred OTS regulations were published as new FDIC regulations in the Federal Register on August 5, 2011.[8] When it republished the transferred OTS regulations as new FDIC regulations, the FDIC specifically noted that its staff would evaluate the transferred OTS regulations and might later recommend incorporating the transferred OTS regulations into other FDIC rules, amending them, or rescinding them, as appropriate.

One of the regulations transferred to the FDIC was 12 CFR part 390 subpart U, which covers the former OTS requirements for the disclosure and reporting by State savings associations with securities registered pursuant to section 12(i) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”).[9]

II. Proposed Rule

On April 21, 2014, the FDIC published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR or Proposed Rule) regarding the removal of subpart U from 12 CFR part 390.[10] As discussed in the Proposed Rule, section 12(i) of the Exchange Act provides the FDIC with the authority to administer and enforce certain enumerated sections of the Exchange Act and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act with respect to State nonmember banks and State savings associations (collectively “FDIC-supervised institutions”) as the appropriate Federal banking agency for such institutions. In an effort to streamline FDIC regulations for all FDIC-supervised institutions, the NPR proposed to remove part 390 subpart U from the Code of Federal Regulations and all references made therein from the FDIC rules and regulations. The FDIC also compared part 390 subpart U with part 335, a substantively similar FDIC regulation that existed before the transfer of the OTS regulations. Similar to Part 390 subpart U, part 335 governs the securities registration and reporting requirements of the Exchange Act for State nonmember banks. Although both rules implement identical provisions of the Exchange Act and SEC rules, part 335 provided more detailed guidance than subpart U by incorporating the SEC rules with greater specificity. As such, the NPR also proposed to expand the scope of part 335 to include State savings associations by inserting the term “state savings associations” where appropriate. The NPR also proposed to make technical changes to reflect an internal FDIC reorganization.

III. Comments

The FDIC issued the NPR with a 60-day comment period, which closed on June 20, 2014. The FDIC received no comments, and consequently, the Final Rule is adopted as proposed with minor technical changes.

IV. Explanation of the Final Rule

Under the Final Rule, 12 CFR part 335 applies to the securities of both State nonmember banks and State savings associations registered under the Exchange Act, and part 390 subpart U is removed in its entirety. Part 390 subpart U is substantively similar to part 335, and the designation of part 335 as a single authority for the securities registration and reporting requirements for all FDIC-supervised institutions will serve to streamline the FDIC's rules and eliminate unnecessary regulations. To that effect, the Final Rule removes and rescinds 12 CFR Part 390 subpart U in its entirety as well as all references to subpart U found in sections 390.321(b)(2) and 390.380(a)(3) of the FDIC rules and regulations.[11]

Consistent with the Proposed Rule, the Final Rule also revises part 335 by inserting the term “state savings association” where appropriate and retitling the heading of Part 335 as Securities of State Nonmember Banks and State Savings Associations. The rewording of “Nonmember Insured Banks” to “State Nonmember Banks” reflects more consistent use of defined terms under section 3 of the FDI Act.[12] Additionally, section 335.901, which contains the FDIC Board of Directors' Delegations of Authority related to part 335, is removed, and all references to the “Division of Supervision and Consumer Protection (DSC)” are deleted and replaced with the words “Division of Risk Management Supervision (RMS)” to reflect an internal FDIC reorganization.

V. Regulatory Analysis and Procedure

A. The Paperwork Reduction Act

In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3521), 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. The information collection affected by this Final Rule is Securities of Insured Nonmember Banks, 3064-0030.[13]

The Final Rule rescinds and removes from the FDIC regulations 12 CFR part 390 subpart U. This rule also proposes to amend part 335 to incorporate State savings associations into the part. In the NPR, it was determined that the revision of part 335 to include state savings associations would add additional burden to the FDIC's information collection under OMB control number 3064-0030, Securities of Insured Nonmember Banks, as State savings associations would be required to submit the appropriate forms and financial statements to comply with the filing and disclosure requirements of part 335. The FDIC's burden estimates were updated in connection with the Proposed Rule to include State savings associations transferred from the OTS to the FDIC and no comments were received. The revised information collection is as follows:

Title: Securities of State Nonmember Banks and State Savings Associations.

OMB Number: 3064-0030.

Form Numbers: 6800/03, 6800/04, 6800/05, Form 8-A, Form 8-C, Form 8-K, Form 10, Form 10-C, Form 10-K, Form 10-Q, Form 12b-25, Form 15, Form 25, Schedule 13D, Schedule 13E-Start Printed Page 635003, Schedule 13G, Schedule 14A, Schedule 14C, Schedule 14D-1 (Schedule TO).

Frequency of Response: Forms 6800/05 and 10-K and Schedule 14A are filed annually. Form 10-Q is filed quarterly. All other forms are filed based on each event or transaction.

Existing annual burden: 717 hours.

New estimated additional annual burden: 10,829 hours.

Total Estimated Annual Burden: 11,546 hours.

B. The Regulatory Flexibility Act

The Regulatory Flexibility Act (“RFA”) generally requires an agency to consider whether a final rule will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (defined in regulations promulgated by the Small Business Administration to include banking organizations with total assets of less than or equal to $550 million).[14] However, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required if the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities, and publishes its certification and a short explanatory statement in the Federal Register together with the rule.

Part 390 subpart U was transferred from the OTS's part 563d, which governs the public disclosure and filing requirements of State savings associations that issue securities registered pursuant to the Exchange Act. The corresponding FDIC rule for State nonmember banks is 12 CFR part 335. The Final Rule removes part 390 subpart U in its entirety and revises part 335 to incorporate State savings associations into the scope of the part.

For the purposes of the RFA analysis, savings associations with total assets of $550 million or less are considered “small entities.” Additionally, the Exchange Act exempts an issuer of securities from the registration and reporting requirements of the Act if it does not meet the statutory registration threshold under section 12(g) of the Exchange Act unless the issuer lists its securities on a national exchange and is subject to registration under section 12(b) of the Exchange Act. Under section 12(g), a savings association that issues securities is subject to the Exchange Act requirements if, as of the last day of its last fiscal year, it has total assets of more than $10 million and a class of equity securities (other than an exempted security) held of record by either 2,000 persons or 500 persons who are not accredited investors.[15]

Consequently, insured State savings associations that have total assets of $550 million or less and meet the registration threshold under section 12(g) are affected by this Final Rule. Based on both of the section 12(g) criteria, as of the current date, there is one insured State savings association that would be affected by the proposed rule out of a total universe of 54 insured State savings associations. The Final Rule also applies to insured State savings associations with securities listed on a national exchange; however, as of the current date, no insured State savings association has listed securities. Therefore, a substantial number of small entities are not affected.

Additionally, part 390 subpart U and part 335 are substantively similar as both State nonmember banks and State savings associations are subject to the same provisions of the Exchange Act and the SOX Act. Both parts incorporate by reference the same SEC rules such that registered State nonmember banks and State savings associations currently must comply with substantially similar forms and reporting obligations. Therefore, there is no additional compliance burden imposed on registered State savings associations that would result in a significant economic impact on small State savings associations.

For these reasons, the FDIC certifies that the Final Rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities, within the meaning of those terms as used in the RFA.

C. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

The Office of Management and Budget has determined that the Final Rule is not a “major rule” within the meaning of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), 5 U.S.C. 801 et. seq.

D. Plain Language

Section 722 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Public Law 106-102, 113 Stat. 1338, 1471, 12 U.S.C. 4809, requires each Federal banking agency to use plain language in all of its proposed and final rules published after January 1, 2000. As a Federal banking agency subject to the provisions of this section, the FDIC has sought to present the proposed rule to rescind part 390 subpart U and revise part 335 in a simple and straightforward manner. Although the FDIC did not receive any comments, the FDIC sought to present the Final Rule in a simple and straightforward manner.
