Title: Production of Non-public Records and Testimony of Employees in Legal Proceedings (Touhy Request).

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: 12 CFR part 792, subpart C requires anyone requesting NCUA non-public records for use in legal proceedings, or similarly the testimony of NCUA personnel, to provide NCUA with information regarding the requester's grounds for the request. This process is also known as a “Touhy Request”. The information collected will help NCUA decide whether to release non-public records or permit employees to testify in legal proceedings. NCUA regulations also require an entity or person in possession of NCUA records to notify the NCUA upon receipt of a subpoena for those records. The NCUA requires this notice to protect its records and, when necessary, intervene in litigation or file an objection to the disclosure of its confidential information in the appropriate court or tribunal.

Affected Public: Private Sector: Businesses or other for-profits.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 80.
