Proposal to renew the following currently approved collections of information:

1. Title: Interagency Bank Merger Act Application.

OMB Number: 3064-0015.

Form Number: None.

Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for profit.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 241.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Average Burden Hours per Response: 23.5 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 5,664 hours.

General Description of the Collection: The Interagency Bank Merger Act Application form is used by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Comptroller of the Currency for applications under section 18(c) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDIA), as amended (12 U.S.C. 1828(c)). The application is used for a merger, consolidation, or other combining transaction between nonaffiliated parties as well as to effect a corporate reorganization between affiliated parties (affiliate transaction). There is a different level of burden for each of the two types of merger transactions, nonaffiliated and affiliated. An affiliate transaction refers to a merger, consolidation, other combination, or transfer of any deposit liabilities, between depository institutions that are controlled by the same holding company. It includes a business combination between a depository institution and an affiliated interim institution. Applicants proposing affiliate transactions are not required to complete questions 12 through 14 of this form. If depository institutions are not controlled by the same holding company, the merger transaction is considered nonaffiliated, and the applicant must complete the entire form. There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. The estimated annual burden remains the same.

Request for Comment

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collections, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collections of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record.
