Number of respondents: 18,000. General description of report: This information collection is authorized by law (12 U.S.C. 225a, 263, and 353–359) and is voluntary. Individual responses are exempt from disclosure pursuant to section (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552). Abstract: The FR 3033 information collection includes the Census of Finance Companies (FR 3033p) and the Quinquennial Finance Company Survey (FR 3033s). The survey will be reviewed in a separate proposal in 2010. Since June 1955, the Federal Reserve System has surveyed the assets and liabilities of finance companies at fiveyear intervals. The census would ask a set of questions designed to identify the universe of finance companies eligible for potential inclusion in the survey and to enable the stratification of the sample for more statistically efficient estimation. The census would gather limited information including total assets, areas of specialization, and information on the corporate structure of the companies. For purposes of this information collection, finance companies were defined as domestic companies (excluding commercial banks, cooperative banks, investment banks, savings banks, savings and loan PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 institutions and industrial loan corporations or their subsidiaries) whose largest portion of assets is made up of consumer or business loans or leases.

Abstract: This voluntary report collects derivatives market statistics from the five largest U.S. dealers of over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives. Data are collected on the notional amounts and gross market values of the volumes outstanding of broad categories of foreign exchange, interest rate, and equity- and commodity-linked OTC derivatives contracts across a range of underlying currencies, interest rates, and equity markets. This collection of information complements the ongoing triennial Survey of Foreign Exchange and Derivatives Market Activity (FR 3036; OMB No. 7100–0285). The FR 2436 collects similar data on the outstanding volume of derivatives, but not on derivatives turnover. The Federal Reserve conducts both surveys in coordination with other central banks and forwards the aggregated data furnished by U.S. reporters to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), which publishes global market statistics that are aggregations of national data. Current Actions: On January 29, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 4819) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the FR 2436.
