Title: Records Preservation, 12 CFR part 749.

Form: None.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: Part 749 requires all federally insured credit unions (FICUs) to maintain a records preservation program. The program must be in writing and include a schedule for the storage and destruction of records and emergency contact information for employees, officials, regulatory offices, and vendors used to support vital records. The collection of information is authorized by sections 120, 203, and 209 of the Federal Credit Union (FCU) Act; 12 U.S.C. 1766, 1783, and 1789. The records preservation program requirement enables FICUs to reconstruct their vital records in the event records are destroyed by a catastrophe and facilitates restoration of vital member services.

Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval.
