SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the OMB for each collection of information that they conduct or sponsor. “Collection of information” is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) to include agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of title 44 requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the OCC is publishing notice of the renewal of this collection.

Title of Information Collection: Supervisory Guidance: Supervisory Review Process of Capital Adequacy (Pillar 2) Related to the Implementation of the Basel II Advanced Capital Framework.

OMB Control No.: 1557-0242.

Frequency of Response: Event-generated.

Affected Public: National banks.

Abstract: In 2008, the agencies [2] issued a supervisory guidance document for implementing the supervisory review process (Pillar 2).[3] Paragraphs 37, 41, 43, and 46 of the guidance contain information collections. Paragraph 37 provides that banks should state clearly the definition of capital used in any aspect of its internal capital adequacy assessment process (ICAAP) and document any changes in the internal definition of capital. Paragraph 41 provides that banks should maintain thorough documentation of ICAAP. Paragraph 43 specifies that the board of director should approve the bank's ICAAP, review it on a regular basis, and approve any changes. Boards of directors, under Paragraph 46, should periodically, and at least annually, review the assessment of overall capital adequacy and analyze how measures of internal capital adequacy compare with other capital measures (such as regulatory or accounting).

Estimated Burden:

Number of Respondents: 19.

Estimated Burden per Respondent: 140 hours.

Total Estimated Annual Burden: 2,660 hours.

Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:

(a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the OCC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility;

(b) The accuracy of the OCC's burden estimates, 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 the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and
