DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

Office of the Comptroller of the Currency


Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Information 
Collection; Comment Request

AGENCY: Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Treasury.

ACTION: Notice and request for comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The OCC, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork 
and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal 
agencies to comment on a continuing information collection, as required 
by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. An agency may not conduct or 
sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, an information 
collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) control number. The OCC is soliciting comment 
concerning an extension of OMB approval of the information collection 
titled, ``Disclosure of Financial and Other Information by National 
Banks (12 CFR 18).''

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before May 14, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Communications Division, Office of the Comptroller of the 
Currency, Public Information Room, Mailstop 1-5, Attention: 1557-0182, 
250 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20219. In addition, comments may be 
sent by fax to (202) 874-4448, or by electronic mail to 
regs.comments@occ.treas.gov. You can inspect and photocopy the comments 
at the OCC's Public Information Room, 250 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 
20219. You can make an appointment to inspect the comments by calling 
(202) 874-5043.
    Additionally, you should send a copy of your comments to OCC Desk 
Officer, 1557-0182, by mail to U.S. Office of Management and Budget, 
725 17th Street, NW., 10235, Washington, DC 20503, or by fax 
to (202) 395-6974.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: You may request additional information 
or a copy of the collection and supporting documentation submitted to 
OMB by contacting: Mary Gottlieb or Camille Dickerson, (202) 874-5090, 
Legislative and Regulatory Activities Division, Office of the 
Comptroller of the Currency, 250 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20219.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Disclosure of Financial and Other Information by National 
Banks (12 CFR 18).
    OMB Control No.: 1557-0182.
    Type of Review: Extension, without revision, of a currently 
approved collection.
    Description: The collections of information are found in 12 CFR 
18.4(c) and 18.8. Section 18.4(c) permits a bank to prepare an optional 
narrative for inclusion in its annual disclosure statement. Section 
18.8 requires that a national bank promptly furnish materials in 
response to a request.
    The regulation applies to approximately 1,800 national banks and 50 
Federal branches and agencies. Most banks will use their Call Reports 
or information prepared for annual reports as their disclosure 
material.
    This program of periodic financial disclosure is needed, not only 
to facilitate informed decision making by existing and potential 
customers and investors, but also to improve public understanding of, 
and confidence in, the financial condition of individual national banks 
and the national banking system. Further, financial disclosure reduces 
the likelihood that the market will overreact to incomplete 
information.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit.
    Burden Estimates:
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,850.
    Estimated Number of Responses: 1,850.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 925 hours.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    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 functions of the agency, including whether 
the information has practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology; and
    (e) Estimates of capital or startup costs and costs of operation, 
maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
