operations of U.S. banks. All foreign branches of U.S. banks regardless 
of charter type, file this report with the appropriate Federal Reserve 
District Bank. The Federal Reserve collects this information on behalf 
of the U.S. bank's primary federal bank regulatory agency. The FFIEC 
030S contains five data items that branches with total assets between 
$50 million and $250 million file on an annual basis in lieu of the 
FFIEC 030 reporting form.
    On July 21, 2011, supervisory responsibility for federal and state-
chartered savings associations was transferred from the former Office 
of Thrift Supervision to the OCC and the FDIC, respectively, pursuant 
to Title III of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer 
Protection Act, Public Law 111-203. Accordingly, the Foreign Branch 
Report of Condition would be applicable to foreign branches, if any, of 
insured U.S. savings associations beginning as of the December 31, 
2012, report date. No other changes are proposed to the FFIEC 030 or
