OMB Number: 3133-0094.

Type of Review: Extension of a previously approved collection.

Title: Suspicious Activity Report by Depository Institutions.

Abstract: The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), Department of the Treasury, was granted broad authority to require suspicious transaction reporting under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) (31 U.S.C. 5318(g)). Information about suspicious transactions conducted or attempted by, at, through, or otherwise involving credit unions are collected through FinCEN's, BSA E-filing system by credit unions. A suspicious activity report (SAR) is to be filed no later than 30 calendar days from the date of the initial detection of facts that may constitute a basis for filing a SAR. If no suspect can be identified, the period for filing a SAR is extended to 60 days.

FinCEN and law enforcement agencies use the information on BSA-SARs and the supporting documentation retained by the banks for criminal investigation and prosecution purposes.

Affected Public: Private Sector: Not-for-profit institutions.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 83,859.

OMB Number: 3133-0167.

Type of Review: Extension of a previously approved collection.

Title: Foreign Branching, 12 CFR 741.11.

Abstract: Pursuant to Part 741, Section 741.11 of the NCUA Rules and Regulations, an insured credit union that wishes to establish a branch office outside the United States (other than branches located on United States military installations or embassies) must apply for and receive approval from the NCUA regional director before establishing that branch. The application must include (1) a business plan, (2) written approval by the state supervisory agency if the applicant is a state-chartered credit union, and (3) documentation evidencing written permission from the host country to establish the branch that explicitly recognizes NCUA's authority to examine and take any enforcement actions, including conservatorship and liquidation actions.

This information is necessary to evaluate the safety and soundness of the decision to open the branch and to protect the interests of the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.

Estimated No. Respondents: Private Sector: Not-for-profit institutions.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 32.
