SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OCC is requesting comment on the following proposed information collection: Title: Customer Complaint Form. OMB Control No.: 1557–0232. Description: The customer complaint form was developed as a courtesy for those that contact the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s Customer Assistance Group and wish to file a formal, written complaint. The form allows consumers to focus their issues and provide a complete picture of their concerns, but is entirely voluntary. It is designed to prevent having to go back to a consumer for additional information, which delays the process. Completion of the form allows the Customer Assistance Group to process the complaint more efficiently. The Customer Assistance Group will use the information to create a record of the consumer’s contact, including capturing information that can be used to resolve the consumer’s issues and provide a database of information that is incorporated into the OCC’s supervisory process.
