AGENCY: The NCUA, as part of their continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invite the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. NCUA is soliciting comments concerning the Suspicious Activity Report (SAR). As Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) administrator, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) transitioned from a system originally designed for collecting industry specific paper forms to a modernized information technology environment centered on electronic reporting. Based on financial institution type, depository institutions, broker-dealers in securities, futures commission merchants and introducing brokers in commodities, insurance companies, mutual funds, money services businesses, and casinos PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 currently filed reports on four separate forms. FinCEN’s objective is to have one electronically-filed dynamic and interactive BSA–SAR that will be used by all filing institutions to report suspicious activity as of April 1, 2013. There are no proposed changes to the regulatory reporting criteria for information collection. Federally insured credit unions will continue to follow the regulation, interagency guidance, and filing instructions to determine when a report should be filed and what information should be included on the report. Written comments should be received on or before September 30, 2013. DATES: Interested parties are invited to submit written comments to the NCUA Contact and the OMB Reviewer listed below: NCUA Contact: Tracy Crews, National Credit Union Administration, 1775 Duke Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314–3428, Fax No. 703–837–2861, Email: OCIOPRA@ncua.gov.

ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission to OMB for Reinstatement, With Change, of a Previously Approved Collection SUMMARY: 53785 Requests for additional information, a copy of the collection, or a copy of submitted comments should be directed to Tracy Crews at the National Credit Union Administration, 1775 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA 22314–3428, or at (703) 518–6444. The interactive BSA–SAR includes several new data fields and introduces data fields from the SARs of other industries. On March 29, 2012, FinCEN released guidance 1 titled, ‘‘Filing FinCEN’s new Currency Transaction Report and Suspicious Activity Report’’. This guidance clarified expectations and notes that FinCEN is making available additional and more specific data elements (i.e., characterizations of suspicious activity and types of financial services) as a more efficient way to bring information about suspicious activity to the attention of FinCEN and law enforcement. The guidance clarified the addition of new and expanded data elements; however, the guidance does not create an expectation that financial institutions will revise internal programs, or develop new programs, to capture SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1 http://www.fincen.gov/statutes_regs/guidance/ pdf/FIN-2012-G002.pdf.
