Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for three years, without revision, of the following report: Report title: Reporting and Disclosure Requirements Associated with the Policy on Payments System Risk. Agency form number: FR 4102. OMB control number: 7100–0315. Frequency: Biennial. Reporters: Payment and securities settlement systems. Annual reporting hours: 210 hours. Estimated average hours per response: 70 hours. Number of respondents: 3. General description of report: The Federal Reserve has determined that sections 11(i) & (j), 13, 16, and 19(f) of the Federal Reserve Act authorize the Board to exercise general supervision of the Reserve Banks, to make rules and regulations to perform effectively its duties and functions, and to determine and regulate fees charged by member or nonmember banks for the collection or payment of checks, among other things (12 U.S.C. 248(i) & (j), 248–1, 342, 360, and 464). Additionally, depending upon the individual institution, the information collection may be authorized under a more specific statute. Specifically, the Board is authorized to collect information from state member banks under section 9 of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 324); from bank holding companies (and their subsidiaries) under section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)); from savings and loan holding companies under 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(3) and 5412; from Edge and agreement corporations under sections 25 and 25A of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 602 and 625); and from U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks under section 7(c)(2) of the International Banking Act of 1978 (12 U.S.C. 3105(c)(2)), and under section 7(a) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1817(a)). Together, these statutory provisions provide the legal authorization for the reporting and disclosure requirements associated with the FR 4102. Because the selfassessments are to be publicly disclosed and because the Federal Reserve will not collect any information pursuant to this information collection beyond what is made publicly available, no confidentiality issue arises with regard to the FR 4102. The reporting and VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:54 Apr 17, 2013 Jkt 229001 disclosure requirements of the FR 4102 are mandatory. Abstract: The FR 4102 was implemented in January 2007 as a result of revisions to the Federal Reserve’s Policy on Payments System Risk (PSR policy). Under the revised policy, systemically important payment and settlement systems as determined by the Board at that time and subject to the Federal Reserve’s authority are expected to complete and disclose publicly selfassessments against the principles and minimum standards in the policy. The self-assessment should be reviewed and approved by the system’s senior management and board of directors upon completion and made readily available to the public. In addition, a self-assessment should be updated following material changes to the system or its environment and, at a minimum, reviewed by the system every two years. Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for three years, with revision, of the following report: Report title: Transfer Agent Registration and Amendment Form. Agency form number: FR TA–1. OMB control number: 7100–0099. Frequency: On occasion. Reporters: State member banks (SMBs) and their subsidiaries, bank holding companies (BHCs), certain nondeposit trust company subsidiaries of BHCs, and savings and loan holding companies (SLHCs). Annual reporting hours: 4 hours. Estimated average time per response: Registrations: 1.25 hours; Amendments: 10 minutes. Number of respondents: Registrations: 2; Amendments: 4. General description of report: The FR TA–1 is mandatory and that its collection is authorized by sections 17A(c), 17(a)(3), and 23(a)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Act), as amended (15 U.S.C. 78q-1(c), 78q(a)(3), and 78w(a)(1)). Additionally, Section 3(a)(34)(B)(ii) of the Act (15 U.S.C. 78c(a)(34)(B)(ii)) provides that the Board is the appropriate regulatory agency for purposes of various filings by SMBs and their subsidiaries, BHCs, SLHCs and certain nondepository trust company subsidiaries of BHCs that act as a clearing agency or transfer agent. The registrations are public filings and are not considered confidential. Abstract: The Act requires any person acting as a transfer agent to register as such and to amend registration information when it changes. SMBs and their subsidiaries, BHCs, and certain nondeposit trust company subsidiaries of BHCs register with the Federal PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Reserve System by submitting Form TA–1. The information collected is available to the public upon request and includes the company name, all business addresses, and several questions about the registrant’s proposed activities as a transfer agent. Current actions: The Federal Reserve proposes to include SLHCs in the respondent panel. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, April 15, 2013. Robert deV. Frierson, Secretary of the Board.

ACTION: Notice. In compliance with section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Electronic Government Office (EGOV), Department of Health and Human Services, has submitted an Information Collection Request (ICR), described below, to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. The ICR is for reinstatement of a previouslyapproved information collection assigned OMB control number 4040– 0001, which expired on March 31, 2013.

    Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for 
three years, without revision, of the following report:

the Policy on Payments System Risk.

    OMB control number: 7100-0315.
    Frequency: Biennial.
    Reporters: Payment and securities settlement systems.
    Annual reporting hours: 210 hours.
    Estimated average hours per response: 70 hours.
    Number of respondents: 3.
    General description of report: The Federal Reserve has determined 
that sections 11(i) & (j), 13, 16, and 19(f) of the Federal Reserve Act 
authorize the Board to exercise general supervision of the Reserve 
Banks, to make rules and regulations to perform effectively its duties

things (12 U.S.C. 248(i) & (j), 248-1, 342, 360, and 464). 
Additionally, depending upon the individual institution, the 
information collection may be authorized under a more specific statute. 
Specifically, the Board is authorized to collect information from state 
member banks under section 9 of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 
324); from bank holding companies (and their subsidiaries) under 
section 5(c) of the Bank Holding Company Act (12 U.S.C. 1844(c)); from 
savings and loan holding companies under 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(3) and

International Banking Act of 1978 (12 U.S.C. 3105(c)(2)), and under 
section 7(a) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1817(a)). 
Together, these statutory provisions provide the legal authorization 
for the reporting and disclosure requirements associated with the FR 
4102. Because the self-assessments are to be publicly disclosed and 
because the Federal Reserve will not collect any information pursuant 
to this information collection beyond what is made publicly available, 
no confidentiality issue arises with regard to the FR 4102. The 
reporting and disclosure requirements of the FR 4102 are mandatory.
    Abstract: The FR 4102 was implemented in January 2007 as a result 
of revisions to the Federal Reserve's Policy on Payments System Risk 
(PSR policy). Under the revised policy, systemically important payment 
and settlement systems as determined by the Board at that time and

disclose publicly self-assessments against the principles and minimum 
standards in the policy. The self-assessment should be reviewed and 
approved by the system's senior management and board of directors upon 
completion and made readily available to the public. In addition, a 
self-assessment should be updated following material changes to the 
system or its environment and, at a minimum, reviewed by the system 
every two years.

Amendments: 10 minutes.
    Number of respondents: Registrations: 2; Amendments: 4.
    General description of report: The FR TA-1 is mandatory and that 
its collection is authorized by sections 17A(c), 17(a)(3), and 23(a)(1) 
of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Act), as amended (15 U.S.C. 
78q-1(c), 78q(a)(3), and 78w(a)(1)). Additionally, Section 
3(a)(34)(B)(ii) of the Act (15 U.S.C. 78c(a)(34)(B)(ii)) provides that 
the Board is the appropriate regulatory agency for purposes of various 
filings by SMBs and their subsidiaries, BHCs, SLHCs and certain 
nondepository trust company subsidiaries of BHCs that act as a clearing 
agency or transfer agent. The registrations are public filings and are 
not considered confidential.
