General Description of Reports This information collection is mandatory for banks 1 using the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework: 12 U.S.C. 161 (for national banks), 12 U.S.C. 324 and 12 U.S.C. 1844(c) (for State member banks and BHCs respectively), 12 U.S.C. 1817 (for insured State nonmember commercial and savings banks), and 12 U.S.C. 1464 (for savings associations). This information collection will be given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)) except for selected data items (Schedules A and B, and data items 1 and 2 of the operational risk Schedule S) that will be released for reporting periods after an institution has successfully completed its parallel run period and is qualified to use the advanced approaches for regulatory capital purposes. The agencies will not publicly release information submitted during an entity’s parallel run period. Abstract Each bank that qualifies for and applies the advanced internal ratingsbased approach to calculate regulatory credit risk capital and the advanced measurement approaches to calculate regulatory operational risk capital, as 1 For simplicity, and unless otherwise indicated, this notice uses the term ‘‘bank’’ to include banks, savings associations, and bank holding companies (BHCs). The terms ‘‘bank holding company’’ and ‘‘BHC’’ refer only to bank holding companies regulated by the Board and do not include savings and loan holding companies regulated by the OTS. For a detailed description of the institutions covered by this notice, refer to Part I, Section 1, of the final rule entitled Risk-Based Capital Standards: Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (72 FR 69397, December 7, 2007). PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65403 described in the final rule implementing the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (72 FR 69288, December 7, 2007, referred to hereafter as the final rule), is required to file quarterly regulatory data. The agencies use these data to assess and monitor the levels and components of each reporting entity’s risk-based capital requirements and the adequacy of the entity’s capital under the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework; to evaluate the impact and competitive implications of the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework on individual reporting entities and on an industry-wide basis; as one input to develop an interagency study at the end of the second transitional floor period (as described more fully in the final rule); and to supplement on-site examination processes. The reporting schedules also assist banks in understanding expectations around the system development necessary for implementation and validation of the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework. Submitted data that are released publicly following a reporting entity’s parallel run period will also provide other interested parties with information about banks’ risk-based capital. Current Actions The agencies propose to revise certain portions of the FFIEC 101 report beginning with the March 31, 2011, report date. These proposed changes are described below. Reporting of information about the numerator of a bank holding company’s risk-based capital ratios. For bank holding companies subject to these reporting requirements, the agencies propose to recaption line item 6.b of Schedule A, Part 1 of the FFIEC 101 report and to add line item 6.c. Line item 6.b is currently intended to capture two components of capital that are reported separately on Schedule HC–R of the FR Y–9C: 2 the amount of qualifying restricted core capital elements (other than cumulative perpetual preferred stock) held by bank holding companies (as reported in item 6.b of Schedule HC–R) and qualifying mandatory convertible preferred securities held by internationally active bank holding companies (as reported in item 6.c of Schedule HC–R). The agencies propose to align the reporting of these capital elements to that of Schedule HC–R of the FR Y–9C by separately including both capital elements in the FFIEC 101. These two capital elements would replace the 2 Consolidated Financial Statements for Bank Holding Companies, OMB Number: 7100–0128. E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1 emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES 65404 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 204 / Friday, October 22, 2010 / Notices current item 6.b and would appear, as they do on Schedule HC–R in the FR Y– 9C, as items 6.b and 6.c of Schedule A, Part 1, respectively. Reporting instructions for the FFIEC 101 would be revised accordingly. The change in reporting would apply only to bank holding companies. Reporting of information about the numerator of a savings association’s risk-based capital ratios. For the purposes of simplicity and comparability of reporting financial information among banks and savings associations under the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework, the Agencies propose to delete Part 2 of Schedule A for savings associations. Instead, all banks, bank holding companies, and savings associations reporting under the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework would report on the same Schedule A form (see http:// www.ffiec.gov/forms101.htm). Reporting instructions for the FFIEC 101 would be revised accordingly. Reporting of information on equity exposures. Banks subject to these reporting requirements currently provide information about equity exposure amounts and the risk-weighted asset amount of these exposures in Schedule R of the FFIEC 101. This schedule currently contains 22 line items (exposure categories, subtotals, and totals) and two columns (exposure and risk-weighted asset amounts) in which data are reported. A number of the line items listed on the schedule only apply to certain approaches contained within the final rule for calculating risk-weighted asset amounts for equity exposures. The agencies propose to reformat Schedule R to clarify what line items need to be reported based on which of the three approaches the bank uses to calculate risk-weighted asset amounts for its equity exposures: the simple risk weight approach (SRWA), the full internal models approach (full IMA), or the IMA applied to only publicly traded equity exposures (publicly traded or partial IMA). The reformatted version of Schedule R does not alter any of the existing line items in the current schedule. More specifically, neither the exposure categories nor the number of equity exposure items completed by banks using a given approach would change as a result of this proposal. Rather, the proposal is to expand the number of columns shown on the schedule from two to six to allow for reporting of a distinct set of exposure and riskweighted asset information for banks using the SRWA, a distinct set of exposure and risk-weighted asset VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:43 Oct 21, 2010 Jkt 223001 information for banks using the full IMA, and a distinct set of exposure and risk-weighted asset information for banks using the partial IMA. Each set of exposure and risk-weighted asset columns would appear with the heading of the applicable final rule approach used by the bank and only those exposure categories (including subtotals and totals) applicable to a given approach would appear within each columnar section of the reformatted schedule (see http://www.ffiec.gov/ forms101.htm). Reporting instructions for the FFIEC 101 would be revised accordingly. Request for Comment Public comment is requested on all aspects of this joint notice. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed revisions to the collection of information that are the subject of this notice are necessary for the proper performance of the agencies’ functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agencies’ estimates of the burden of the information collection as they are proposed to be revised, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; (d) Ways to minimize the burden of information collections 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. Comments submitted in response to this joint notice will be shared among the agencies and will be summarized or included in the agencies’ requests for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: October 7, 2010.

General Description of Reports

    This information collection is mandatory for banks \1\ using the 
Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework: 12 U.S.C. 161 (for national 
banks), 12 U.S.C. 324 and 12 U.S.C. 1844(c) (for State member banks and 
BHCs respectively), 12 U.S.C. 1817 (for insured State nonmember 
commercial and savings banks), and 12 U.S.C. 1464 (for savings 
associations). This information collection will be given confidential 
treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)) except for selected data items 
(Schedules A and B, and data items 1 and 2 of the operational risk 
Schedule S) that will be released for reporting periods after an 
institution has successfully completed its parallel run period and is 
qualified to use the advanced approaches for regulatory capital 
purposes. The agencies will not publicly release information submitted 
during an entity's parallel run period.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For simplicity, and unless otherwise indicated, this notice 
uses the term ``bank'' to include banks, savings associations, and 
bank holding companies (BHCs). The terms ``bank holding company'' 
and ``BHC'' refer only to bank holding companies regulated by the 
Board and do not include savings and loan holding companies 
regulated by the OTS. For a detailed description of the institutions 
covered by this notice, refer to Part I, Section 1, of the final 
rule entitled Risk-Based Capital Standards: Advanced Capital 
Adequacy Framework (72 FR 69397, December 7, 2007).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Abstract

    Each bank that qualifies for and applies the advanced internal 
ratings-based approach to calculate regulatory credit risk capital and 
the advanced measurement approaches to calculate regulatory operational 
risk capital, as described in the final rule implementing the Advanced 
Capital Adequacy Framework (72 FR 69288, December 7, 2007, referred to 
hereafter as the final rule), is required to file quarterly regulatory 
data. The agencies use these data to assess and monitor the levels and 
components of each reporting entity's risk-based capital requirements 
and the adequacy of the entity's capital under the Advanced Capital 
Adequacy Framework; to evaluate the impact and competitive implications 
of the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework on individual reporting 
entities and on an industry-wide basis; as one input to develop an 
interagency study at the end of the second transitional floor period 
(as described more fully in the final rule); and to supplement on-site 
examination processes. The reporting schedules also assist banks in 
understanding expectations around the system development necessary for 
implementation and validation of the Advanced Capital Adequacy 
Framework. Submitted data that are released publicly following a 
reporting entity's parallel run period will also provide other 
interested parties with information about banks' risk-based capital.

Current Actions

    The agencies propose to revise certain portions of the FFIEC 101 
report beginning with the March 31, 2011, report date. These proposed 
changes are described below.
    Reporting of information about the numerator of a bank holding 
company's risk-based capital ratios. For bank holding companies subject 
to these reporting requirements, the agencies propose to recaption line 
item 6.b of Schedule A, Part 1 of the FFIEC 101 report and to add line 
item 6.c. Line item 6.b is currently intended to capture two components 
of capital that are reported separately on Schedule HC-R of the FR Y-
9C: \2\ the amount of qualifying restricted core capital elements 
(other than cumulative perpetual preferred stock) held by bank holding 
companies (as reported in item 6.b of Schedule HC-R) and qualifying 
mandatory convertible preferred securities held by internationally 
active bank holding companies (as reported in item 6.c of Schedule HC-
R). The agencies propose to align the reporting of these capital 
elements to that of Schedule HC-R of the FR Y-9C by separately 
including both capital elements in the FFIEC 101. These two capital 
elements would replace the

[[Page 65404]]

current item 6.b and would appear, as they do on Schedule HC-R in the 
FR Y-9C, as items 6.b and 6.c of Schedule A, Part 1, respectively. 
Reporting instructions for the FFIEC 101 would be revised accordingly. 
The change in reporting would apply only to bank holding companies.

Companies, OMB Number: 7100-0128.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Reporting of information about the numerator of a savings 
association's risk-based capital ratios. For the purposes of simplicity 
and comparability of reporting financial information among banks and 
savings associations under the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework, the 
Agencies propose to delete Part 2 of Schedule A for savings 
associations. Instead, all banks, bank holding companies, and savings 
associations reporting under the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework 
would report on the same Schedule A form (see http://www.ffiec.gov/forms101.htm). Reporting instructions for the FFIEC 101 would be 
revised accordingly.
    Reporting of information on equity exposures. Banks subject to 
these reporting requirements currently provide information about equity 
exposure amounts and the risk-weighted asset amount of these exposures 
in Schedule R of the FFIEC 101. This schedule currently contains 22 
line items (exposure categories, subtotals, and totals) and two columns 
(exposure and risk-weighted asset amounts) in which data are reported. 
A number of the line items listed on the schedule only apply to certain 
approaches contained within the final rule for calculating risk-
weighted asset amounts for equity exposures. The agencies propose to 
reformat Schedule R to clarify what line items need to be reported 
based on which of the three approaches the bank uses to calculate risk-
weighted asset amounts for its equity exposures: the simple risk weight 
approach (SRWA), the full internal models approach (full IMA), or the 
IMA applied to only publicly traded equity exposures (publicly traded 
or partial IMA).
    The reformatted version of Schedule R does not alter any of the 
existing line items in the current schedule. More specifically, neither 
the exposure categories nor the number of equity exposure items 
completed by banks using a given approach would change as a result of 
this proposal. Rather, the proposal is to expand the number of columns 
shown on the schedule from two to six to allow for reporting of a 
distinct set of exposure and risk-weighted asset information for banks 
using the SRWA, a distinct set of exposure and risk-weighted asset 
information for banks using the full IMA, and a distinct set of 
exposure and risk-weighted asset information for banks using the 
partial IMA. Each set of exposure and risk-weighted asset columns would 
appear with the heading of the applicable final rule approach used by 
the bank and only those exposure categories (including subtotals and 
totals) applicable to a given approach would appear within each 
columnar section of the reformatted schedule (see http://www.ffiec.gov/forms101.htm). Reporting instructions for the FFIEC 101 would be 
revised accordingly.
