The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The changes will be implemented as proposed. Foreign organizations seeking initial entry are currently required to file the FR Y–1F. However, the filing requirements are ambiguous for foreign organizations that are already subject to the BHCA and seek to acquire a U.S. bank or BHC. In order to clarify and streamline the application process for foreign organizations, the Federal Reserve will explicitly state that these organizations should file the FR Y–1F. Thus, the FR Y–1F will be retitled, renumbered, and modified to achieve consistency with the FR Y–3, the Application for Prior Approval to Become a Bank Holding Company or for a Bank Holding E:\FR\FM\23SEN1.SGM 23SEN1
