Abstract: In 1985, the Banking Supervisory Agencies issued procedures to be used by banks and certain other financial institutions operating in the United States to report known or suspected criminal activities to the appropriate law enforcement and Banking Supervisory Agencies. Beginning in 1994, the Banking Supervisory Agencies and the FinCEN redesigned the reporting process resulting in the Suspicious Activity Report, which became effective in April 1996. The report is authorized by the following regulations: 31 CFR 103.18 (FinCEN); 12 CFR 21.11 (OCC); 12 CFR 563.180 (OTS); 12 CFR 208.62(c), 211.5(k), 211.24(f), and 225.4(f) (Board); 12 CFR 353.3 (FDIC); 12 CFR 748.1 (NCUA). The regulations were issued under the authority contained in the following statutes: 31 U.S.C. 5318(g) (FinCEN); 12 U.S.C. 93a, 1818, 1881–84, 3401–22, 31 U.S.C. 5318 (OCC); 12 U.S.C. 1463 and 1464 (OTS); 12 U.S.C. 248(a)(1), 625, 1818, 1844(c), 3105(c)(2) and 3106(a) (Board); 12 U.S.C1818–1820 (FDIC); 12 U.S.C. 1766(a), 1789(a) (NCUA). Current Action: The Banking Supervisory Agencies and the FinCEN propose to renew, without revision, the currently approved form.2 Type of Review: Renewal of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Business, for-profit institutions, and non-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2 The form being renewed was approved by OMB effective June 30, 2007. On May 1, 2007, FinCEN published a Federal Register notice (72 FR 23891) (http://www.fincen.gov/statutes_regs/frn/pdf/ sar_fr_notice.pdf) announcing the delayed implementation of the revised Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) forms. The revised SAR forms that support joint filings were originally scheduled to become effective on June 30, 2007 and mandatory on December 31, 2007. The delay in implementation does not impact ongoing suspicious activity reporting. Filers should continue to use the July 2003 form until further notice (http://www.fincen.gov/forms/files/f9022– 47_sar-di.pdf). FinCEN will establish new dates for using the revised SAR forms in a future notice. Depository institutions will be provided ample lead time to incorporate the approved version.

    Abstract: In 1985, the Banking Supervisory Agencies issued 
procedures to be used by banks and certain other financial institutions 
operating in the United States to report known or suspected criminal 
activities to the appropriate law enforcement and Banking Supervisory 
Agencies. Beginning in 1994, the Banking Supervisory Agencies and the 
FinCEN redesigned the reporting process resulting in the Suspicious 
Activity Report, which became effective in April 1996. The report is 
authorized by the following regulations: 31 CFR 103.18 (FinCEN); 12 CFR 
21.11 (OCC); 12 CFR 563.180 (OTS); 12 CFR 208.62(c), 211.5(k), 
211.24(f), and 225.4(f) (Board); 12 CFR 353.3 (FDIC); 12 CFR 748.1 
(NCUA). The regulations were issued under the authority contained in 
the following statutes: 31 U.S.C. 5318(g) (FinCEN); 12 U.S.C. 93a, 
1818, 1881-84, 3401-22, 31 U.S.C. 5318 (OCC); 12 U.S.C. 1463 and 1464 
(OTS); 12 U.S.C. 248(a)(1), 625, 1818, 1844(c), 3105(c)(2) and 3106(a) 
(Board); 12 U.S.C1818-1820 (FDIC); 12 U.S.C. 1766(a), 1789(a) (NCUA).
    Current Action: The Banking Supervisory Agencies and the FinCEN 
propose to renew, without revision, the currently approved form.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The form being renewed was approved by OMB effective June 
30, 2007. On May 1, 2007, FinCEN published a Federal Register notice 
(72 FR 23891) (http://www.fincen.gov/statutes_regs/frn/pdf/sar_fr_notice.pdf) announcing the delayed implementation of the revised 
Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) forms. The revised SAR forms that 
support joint filings were originally scheduled to become effective 
on June 30, 2007 and mandatory on December 31, 2007. The delay in 
implementation does not impact ongoing suspicious activity 
reporting. Filers should continue to use the July 2003 form until 
further notice (http://www.fincen.gov/forms/files/f9022-47_sar-di.pdf). FinCEN will establish new dates for using the revised SAR 
forms in a future notice. Depository institutions will be provided 
ample lead time to incorporate the approved version.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Type of Review: Renewal of a currently approved collection.
    Affected Public: Business, for-profit institutions, and non-profit 
institutions.
    Estimated Number of Respondents:

Financial Crimes Enforcement Network: 22,387.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Respondents comprise many of the same institutions 
responding to the Supervisory Agencies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System: 7,000.

    Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation: 5,148.
    National Credit Union Administration: 7,834.
    Office of the Comptroller of the Currency: 1,601.
    Office of Thrift Supervision: 804.
    Estimated Total Annual Responses:
    FinCEN: 672,297.
    Board: 86,404.
    FDIC: 133,151.
    NCUA: 56,500.
    OCC: 337,421.
    OTS: 58,821.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: Estimated 60 minutes per form:
    FinCEN: 889,839 hours.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Only one form is filed in satisfaction of the rules of both 
FinCEN and the banking supervisory agencies. The estimated burden 
per form is 60 minutes; the hourly burden does not attempt to 
allocate that time between agencies when the form is filed in 
satisfaction of the rules of more than one agency.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Board: 86,404 hours.
    FDIC: 133,151 hours.
    NCUA: 56,500 hours.
    OCC: 449,086 hours.
    OTS: 164,698 hours.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection of 
information displays a valid Office of Management and Budget control 
number. Records required to be retained under the Bank Secrecy Act and 
these regulations issued by the Banking Supervisory Agencies must be 
retained for five years. Generally, information collected pursuant to 
the Bank Secrecy Act is confidential, but may be shared as provided by 
law with regulatory and law enforcement authorities.
    Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice 
will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of 
Management and Budget 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 shall have 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 of information on respondents, including 
through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology, and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs 
and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to 
provide information.
