SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The OCC is seeking approval for a proposed new information collection:

Title of Collection: Reduction of Permanent Capital Notice.

OMB Control No.: 1557-NEW.

Type of Review: New collection.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 2.

Estimated Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Total Burden: 40 minutes.

Description: Under 12 CFR 5.55, the OCC will review the information submitted by a Federal savings association in its application or notice requesting approval to issue a capital distribution to determine whether the Federal savings association's request is in accordance with existing statutory and regulatory criteria. In addition, the information provides the OCC with a mechanism for monitoring reductions in capital since these distributions may place the Federal savings association at risk.

On April 26, 2016, the OCC issued a 60-day notice soliciting comment on this proposed information collection, 81 FR 24690. No comments were received. Comments continue to be solicited on:

(a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the OCC;

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

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

(d) Ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of information technology.
