On June 15, 1984, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) delegated to the Board authority under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) to approve of and assign OMB control numbers to collection of information requests and requirements conducted or sponsored by the Board. In exercising this delegated authority, the Board is directed to take every reasonable step to solicit comment. In determining whether to approve a collection of information, the Board will consider all comments received from the public and other agencies.
Request for Comment on Information Collection Proposal
The Board invites public comment on the following information collection, which is being reviewed under authority delegated by the OMB under the PRA. Comments are invited on the following:
a. Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the Federal Reserve's functions; including whether the information has practical utility;
b. The accuracy of the Federal Reserve's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
c. Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
d. Ways to minimize the burden of information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and
e. Estimates of capital or startup costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the Federal Reserve should modify the proposal prior to giving final approval.
Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for three years, without revision, of the following report:
Report title: Disclosure Requirements Associated with CFPB's Regulation DD (Truth in Savings Act (TISA)).
Agency form number: FR DD.
OMB control number: 7100-0271.
Respondents: State member banks, branches and agencies of foreign banks (other than federal branches, federal agencies, and insured state branches of foreign banks), commercial lending companies owned or controlled by foreign banks, and organizations operating under section 25 or 25A of the Federal Reserve Act.
Estimated number of respondents: 936.
Estimated average hours per response: Account disclosures, 1 hour; Change in terms notices, 1.5 hours; Notices prior to maturity, 1.5 hours; Periodic statement disclosure, 8 hours; and Advertising, 30 minutes.
Estimated annual burden hours: Account disclosures: 11,232 hours; Change in terms notices: 16,848 hours; Notices prior to maturity: 16,848 hours; Periodic statement disclosure: 89,856 hours; and Advertising: 5,616 hours.
General description of report: TISA was contained in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991. The purpose of TISA and its implementing regulation is to assist consumers in comparing deposit accounts offered by institutions, principally through the disclosure of fees, the annual percentage yield (APY), and other account terms. TISA requires depository institutions to disclose key terms for deposit accounts at account opening, upon request, when certain changes in terms occur, and in periodic statements. It also includes rules about advertising for deposit accounts. TISA does not provide exemptions from compliance for small institutions.
Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board's Legal Division has determined that section 269 of TISA specifically authorizes the CFPB “to prescribe regulations” to carry out the purposes and provisions of the Act, as well as to adopt model forms and clauses for common disclosures to facilitate compliance (12 U.S.C. 4308). FR DD implements this statutory provision (12 CFR part 1030). The Board's imposition of the disclosure requirements on Board-supervised institutions is authorized by Section 270 of TISA, 12 U.S.C. 4309, and the provisions of Regulation DD (12 CFR 1030.1(a), 1030.2(j)). An institution's disclosure obligations under Regulation DD are mandatory. The Board does not collect any information; therefore, no issue of confidentiality arises.
