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 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 Payment System Risk (PSR policy). Under the revised policy, systemically important payment and settlement systems as determined by the VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:49 Jul 15, 2013 Jkt 229001 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. Current actions: On April 18, 2013, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 23253) seeking public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the FR 4102.

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.
