I. Abstract and Request for Comments

NCUA is requesting an extension of the previously approved collection for 3133-0121. The Federal Credit Union (FCU) Act specifically requires all federally insured credit unions to notify NCUA at least 30 days prior to a change in official or senior executive officer if that credit union is newly chartered or in troubled condition. During that 30-day period, NCUA can disapprove the credit union's request. Since the last submission for 3133-0121, NCUA amended 12 CFR 701.14 to redefine “troubled condition” in relation to federally insured state chartered credit unions (FISCUs). The revised rule redefines a FISCU in “troubled condition” to be not only when its state supervisory authority (SSA) assigns it a “4” or “5” composite code rating, but Start Printed Page 30499also when either its SSA or NCUA assigns such a rating. Prior definitions of troubled credit unions did not include FISCUs rated a code 4 or 5 only by NCUA.

The FCU Act requires notice from the insured credit union to include certain personal information about the individual to determine the individual's fitness for the position. NCUA regulation at 12 CFR 701.14 implements Section 212. Section 701.14 requires that within 10 calendar days of receiving the notice, the Regional Director must inform the credit union either that the notice is complete or that additional specified information is required to be submitted within 30 calendar days. Additionally, this section requires the Regional Director or Director of Office of National Examinations and Supervision to issue a written decision of approval or disapproval to the individual and the credit union within 30 calendar days of receipt of the notice. Otherwise, the individual is approved. NCUA's regulation at 12 CFR 741.205 requires federally insured state-chartered credit unions to follow section 701.14.

NCUA's regulations at 12 CFR part 747 (subpart J) sets forth the rights an individual or a credit union may exercise and procedures to be followed in responding to a notice of disapproval by NCUA.

NCUA's forms 4063 and 4063a provide a uniform method for credit unions and individuals to submit information to NCUA regarding changes to officials and senior executive officers. NCUA uses the information to determine an individual's fitness for the position.

In the Federal Register of January 22, 2015 (80 FR 3255), NCUA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. NCUA received no comments.

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

NCUA requests that you send your comments on the information collection requirements outlined by 12 CFR 701.14 to the locations 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.
