III DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY Office of Thrift Supervision System (Board); Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC); and Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS), Treasury. Notice of regulatory review; request for comments. ACTION: SUMMARY: The OCC, Board, FDIC, and OTS (‘‘we’’ or ‘‘the Agencies’’) are reviewing our regulations to identify outdated, unnecessary, or unduly burdensome regulatory requirements pursuant to the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996 (EGRPRA). Today, we request your comments and suggestions on ways to reduce burden in rules we have categorized as Banking Operations; Directors, Officers and Employees; and Rules of Procedure. All comments are welcome. We specifically invite comment on the following issues: whether statutory changes are needed; whether the regulations contain requirements that are not needed to serve the purposes of the statutes they implement; the extent to which the regulations may adversely affect competition; whether the cost of compliance associated with reporting, recordkeeping, and disclosure requirements, particularly on small institutions, is justified; whether any regulatory requirements are inconsistent or redundant; and whether any regulations are unclear. We will analyze the comments received and propose burden-reducing changes to our regulations where appropriate. Some of your suggestions for burden reduction might require legislative changes. Where legislative changes would be required, we will consider your suggestions in recommending appropriate changes to Congress. Written comments must be received no later than November 9, 2005. DATES: 12 CFR Chap. V [No. 2005–26] You may submit comments by any of the following methods: EGRPRA Web site: http:// www.EGRPRA.gov. • Comments submitted at the Agencies’ joint Web site will automatically be distributed to all the Agencies. Comments received at the EGRPRA Web site and by other means will be posted on the Web site to the extent possible.
