attesting to the accuracy of the data, an annual requirement to submit 
a copy of the attestation to the Federal Reserve for all of the FR 2004 
reporting forms is also being proposed. These attestations would be 
required with the submission of the last as-of date of each year.
    In addition, the Federal Reserve proposes to revise the FR 2004SI 
and FR 2004SD reporting forms by replacing the two counterparty data
