Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Treasury; Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board); and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

ACTION:

Joint notice and request for comment.

SUMMARY:

In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (the agencies) 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.

On March 1, 2017, the agencies, under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), requested public comment on a proposal to extend, with revision, the Regulatory Capital Reporting for Institutions Subject to the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (FFIEC 101). The FFIEC 101 is completed only by banking organizations subject to the advanced approaches risk-based capital rule. Generally, this rule applies to banking organizations with $250 billion or more in total consolidated assets or $10 billion or more in on-balance sheet foreign exposures (advanced approaches banking organizations).

The agencies proposed to remove two credit valuation adjustment (CVA) items from the exposure at default (EAD) column on FFIEC 101 Schedule B, Summary Risk-Weighted Asset Information for Banks Approved to Use Advanced Internal Ratings-Based and Advanced Measurement Approaches for Regulatory Capital Purposes (items 31.a and 31.b, column D).

The comment period for this proposal expired on May 1, 2017. The agencies did not receive any comments addressing the proposed changes and are now submitting requests to OMB for review and approval of the extension, with revision, of the FFIEC 101. These reporting changes would take effect as of the September 30, 2017, report date.

General Description of Reports

Each advanced approaches banking organization is required to file quarterly regulatory capital data on the FFIEC 101. The FFIEC 101 information collection is mandatory for advanced approaches banking organizations: 12 U.S.C. 161 (national banks), 12 U.S.C. 324 (state member banks), 12 U.S.C. 1844(c) (bank holding companies), 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b) (savings and loan holding companies), 12 U.S.C. 1817 (insured state nonmember commercial and savings banks), 12 U.S.C. 1464 (savings associations), and 12 U.S.C. 1844(c), 3106, and 3108 (intermediate holding companies).

The agencies use these data to assess and monitor the levels and components of each reporting entity's capital requirements and the adequacy of the Start Printed Page 25657entity's capital under the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework; to evaluate the impact of the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework on individual reporting entities and on an industry-wide basis and its competitive implications; and to supplement on-site examination processes. The reporting schedules also assist advanced approaches banking organizations in understanding expectations relating to the system development necessary for implementation and validation of the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework. Submitted data that are released publicly will also provide other interested parties with information about advanced approaches banking organizations' regulatory capital.

Current Actions

On March 1, 2017, the agencies requested comment on proposed revisions to the FFIEC 101 reporting requirements.[1] The proposed revisions would remove EAD information related to CVAs that already is captured in a separate item on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. Specifically, the agencies proposed to remove column D (EAD) for items 31.a, “Credit valuation adjustments—simple approach,” and 31.b, “Credit valuation adjustments—advanced approach.” These line items were added to the FFIEC 101 report in March of 2014, and were intended to provide data pertaining to the CVA requirements under the agencies' regulatory capital rules [2] for over-the-counter (OTC) derivative activities.

The agencies subsequently determined that the EAD information reported in column D of items 31.a and 31.b on FFIEC 101 Schedule B is already captured in column D of item 10 (OTC derivatives—no cross-product netting—EAD adjustment method) on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. Continuing to collect the same EAD information in both places is not only redundant, but also may be misinterpreted by the users of FFIEC 101 data as additional default risk held by the reporting entity. For these reasons, the agencies proposed removing column D for items 31.a and 31.b on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. The agencies would continue to collect the amount of risk-weighted assets for CVAs in column G of items 31.a and 31.b on FFIEC 101 Schedule B.

The comment period for this proposal expired on May 1, 2017. The agencies did not receive any comments on the proposal and are now submitting requests to OMB for review and approval of the extension, with revision, of the FFIEC 101. While the agencies originally proposed making the changes effective as of the June 30, 2017, report date, due to the time required for the PRA revision process, the agencies have revised the proposal. As revised, the reporting changes would instead take effect as of the September 30, 2017, report date. However, as the two items being removed are not made public or otherwise shared outside the agencies, reporting entities may elect to adopt the changes immediately by ceasing to report column D of items 31.a and 31.b on FFIEC 101 Schedule B.
