Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the extension for three years, without revision, of the following reports: 1. Report title: Notification of Nonfinancial Data Processing Activities. Agency form numbers: FR 4021. OMB control number: 7100–0306. Frequency: On occasion. Reporters: Bank holding companies. Estimated annual reporting hours: 4 hours. Estimated average hours per response: 2 hours. Number of respondents: 2. General description of report: This information collection is required to obtain a benefit. (12 U.S.C. 1843(c)(8), (j) and (k)) and may be given confidential treatment upon request (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Abstract: Bank holding companies submit this notification to request permission to administer the 49-percent revenue limit on nonfinancial data processing activities on a business-line or multiple-entity basis. A request may be filed in a letter form; there is no reporting form for this information collection. 2. Report title: Recordkeeping Requirements Associated With Limitations on Interbank Liabilities.

Estimated annual reporting hours: 6,672 hours. Estimated average time per response: 8 hours. Number of respondents: 834. General description of report: This information collection is mandatory pursuant to section 23 of the Federal Reserve Act, as added by section 308 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (FDICIA) (12 U.S.C. 371b–2). Because the Federal Reserve does not collect any information, no issue of confidentiality normally arises. However, if a compliance program becomes a Federal Reserve record during an examination, the information may be protected from disclosure under exemptions (b)(4) and (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(8)). Abstract: Section 206.3 of Regulation F requires insured depository institutions to establish and maintain policies and procedures designed to prevent excessive exposure to correspondents in order to limit the risks that the failure of a depository institution would pose to insured depository institutions. The Federal Reserve accounts for the paperwork burden on state member banks for Regulation F compliance. 3. Report title: Recordkeeping and Disclosure Requirements Associated With Regulation R.

General description of report: This information collection is required to obtain a benefit pursuant to section 3(a)(4)(F) of the Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78c(a)(4)(F)) and may be given confidential treatment under the authority of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(8)).

Sections 701, 723, and 741 of Regulation R contain information collection requirements. Section 701 requires banks that wish to utilize the exemption in that section to make certain disclosures to the high net worth customer or institutional customer. In addition, section 701 requires banks that wish to utilize the exemption in that section to provide a notice to its brokerdealer partner regarding names and other identifying information about bank employees. Section 723 requires a bank that chooses to rely on the exemption in that section to exclude certain trust or fiduciary accounts in determining its compliance with the chiefly compensated test in section 721 to maintain certain records relating to the excluded accounts. Section 741 requires a bank relying on the exemption provided by that section to provide customers with a prospectus for the money market fund securities, not later than the time the customer authorizes the bank to effect the transaction in such securities, if the class of series of securities are not noload. 4. Report title: Registration of Mortgage Loan Originators. Agency form number: CFPB Regulation G (12 CFR 1007). OMB control number: 7100–0328. Frequency: Annually. Reporters: Employees of state member banks, certain subsidiaries of state member banks, branches and agencies of foreign banks that are regulated by the Federal Reserve, and commercial lending companies of foreign banks who act as residential mortgage loan originators (MLOs). Estimated annual reporting hours: MLOs (new) Initial set up and disclosure; 938 hours; MLOs (existing) Maintenance and disclosure: 16,255 hours; MLOs (existing) Updates for changes: 2,391 hours; Depository Institutions and subsidiaries: 90,388 hours.

Act), 12 U.S.C. 5106, requires that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) develop and maintain a system for registering individual MLOs of covered financial institutions supervised directly by the Bureau or regulated by a federal banking agency with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry. Section 1504 of the S.A.F.E. Act, 12 U.S.C. 5103, requires that an individual desiring to engage in the business of a loan originator maintain an annual federal registration (or be licensed by an equivalent state regulatory scheme) and appear on the Registry with a unique identifier. Section 1007.103 of Regulation G implements this registration scheme on behalf of the Bureau, and Section 1007.105 of Regulation G requires that covered financial institutions provide the unique identifiers of MLOs to consumers. 12 CFR 1007.103 thru 105. This information collection is mandatory. The unique identifier of MLOs must be made public and is not considered confidential. In addition, most of the information that MLOs submit in order to register with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry will be publicly available. However, certain identifying data on individuals who act as MLOs are entitled to confidential treatment under (b)(6) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which protects from disclosure information that ‘‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6). With respect to the information collection requirements imposed on depository institutions, because the requirements are that depository institutions retain their own records and make certain disclosures to customers, the FOIA would only be implicated if the Federal Reserve’s examiners obtained a copy of these records as part of the examination or supervision process of a financial institution. However, records obtained in this manner are exempt from disclosure under FOIA exemption (b)(8), regarding examination-related materials. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). Abstract: On July 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve amended Regulation H to implement the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (the S.A.F.E. Act) with respect to its regulated entities, enacted July 30, 2008.1 On July 21, 2011, provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (DoddFrank Act) transferred certain S.A.F.E. Act responsibilities to the CFPB, including rulemaking authority for all federal depository institutions and supervisory authority for S.A.F.E. Act compliance for entities under the CFPB’s jurisdiction. On December 19, 2011, the CFPB published an interim final rule establishing a new Regulation G,2 S.A.F.E. ACT Mortgage Licensing Act—Federal Registration of Residential Mortgage Loan Originators.3 The CFPB’s rule did not impose any new substantive obligations on regulated persons or entities. The Federal Reserve retains supervisory authority for S.A.F.E. Act compliance for most Federal Reserve-supervised entities with consolidated assets of $10 billion or less. The CFPB’s Regulation G requires employees of state member banks, certain subsidiaries of state member banks, branches and agencies of foreign banks that are regulated by the Federal Reserve, and commercial lending companies of foreign banks who act as residential mortgage loan originators (MLOs) to register with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLSR), obtain a unique identifier, maintain this registration, and disclose to consumers upon request and through the NMLSR their unique identifier, and the MLO’s employment history and publicly adjudicated disciplinary and enforcement actions. The CFPB’s regulation also requires the institutions employing these MLOs to adopt and follow written policies and procedures to ensure their employees comply with these requirements and to disclose the unique identifiers of their MLOs. 5. Report title: Recordkeeping and Disclosure Requirements Associated with Securities Transactions Pursuant to Regulation H. Agency form number: Reg H–3. OMB control number: 7100–0196. Frequency: On occasion. Reporters: State member banks. Estimated annual reporting hours: 97,869 hours. Estimated average time per response: State member banks (de novo): recordkeeping, 40 hours. State member banks with trust departments: recordkeeping, 2 hours; disclosure, 16 hours. State member banks without trust departments: recordkeeping, 15 minutes; disclosure, 5 hours.

Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 member banks without trust departments: 615. General description of report: Regulation H requirements are authorized by Section 23 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘the 34 Act’’), 15 U.S.C. 78w, which empowers the Federal Reserve to make rules and regulations implementing those portions of the 34 Act for which it is responsible. The requirements of 12 CFR 208.34(c), (d), & (g) also are impliedly authorized by Section 9 of the Federal Reserve Act, 12 U.S.C. 325, which requires state member banks to submit to examinations by the Federal Reserve System. These securities transactions requirements appear to be reasonably related to the Federal Reserve’s supervisory authority with respect to the safety and soundness of state member banks. Accordingly, the Federal Reserve is authorized by implication under 12 U.S.C. 325 to impose these recordkeeping, disclosure, and policy establishment requirements. The obligation of a state member bank to comply with the Regulation H requirements is mandatory, save for the limited exceptions set forth in 12 CFR 208.34(a). Inasmuch as the Federal Reserve System does not collect or receive any information concerning securities transactions pursuant to these requirements, no issues of confidentiality normally will arise. If, however, these records were to come into the possession of the Federal Reserve, they may be protected from disclosure pursuant to exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (‘‘FOIA’’), 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), under the standards set forth in National Parks & Conservation Ass’n v. Morton, 498 F.2d 765 (D.C. Cir. 1974), to the extent an institution can establish the potential for substantial competitive harm. They also may be subject to withholding under FOIA exemption 6, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6), should disclosure constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Additionally, if such information were included in the work papers of System examiners or abstracted in System reports of examination, the information also would be protected under exemption 8 of FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). Any withholding determination would be made on a case-by-case basis in response to a specific request for disclosure of the information. Abstract: The Federal Reserve’s Regulation H requires state member banks to maintain records for three years following a securities transaction. These requirements are necessary to protect the customer, to avoid or settle E:\FR\FM\18JYN1.SGM 18JYN1 sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 138 / Friday, July 18, 2014 / Notices customer disputes, and to protect the institution against potential liability arising under the anti-fraud and insider trading provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. 6. Report title: HMDA Loan/ Application Register. Agency form number: FR HMDA– LAR. OMB control number: 7100–0247. Frequency: Annually. Reporters: State member banks, subsidiaries of state member banks, subsidiaries of bank holding companies, U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks (other than federal branches, federal agencies, and insured state branches of foreign banks), commercial lending companies owned or controlled by foreign banks, and organizations operating under section 25 or 25A of the Federal Reserve Act.4 Estimated annual reporting hours: 127,652 hours. Estimated average time per response: State member banks: 242 hours; mortgage subsidiaries: 192 hours. Number of respondents: State member banks: 514; mortgage subsidiaries: 17. General description of report: Section 304(j) of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), which requires the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to prescribe by regulation the form of a LAR that must be maintained by lending institutions, is mandatory for covered institutions. Regulation C implements this statutory provision and requires that reports be sent to the appropriate federal banking agency. HMDA requires that the LAR be made available to the public in the form prescribed by the CFPB. The CFPB is authorized to require certain deletions from the LAR information to protect the privacy of applicants and to protect depository institutions from liability under Federal or state privacy law. The deleted information is exempt from disclosure under that provision of HMDA and pursuant to Exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)). Abstract: HMDA was enacted in 1975 and is implemented by Regulation C. HMDA requires depository and certain for-profit, non-depository institutions to collect, report to regulators, and disclose to the public data about originations and purchases of home mortgage loans (home purchase and refinancing) and home improvement loans, as well as loan applications that do not result in 4 The CFPB supervises, among other institutions, insured depository institutions with over $10 billion in assets and their affiliates (including affiliates that are themselves depository institutions regardless of asset size and subsidiaries of such affiliates). VerDate Mar<15>2010 23:20 Jul 17, 2014 Jkt 232001 originations (for example, applications that are denied or withdrawn). HMDA was enacted to provide the public with loan data that can be used to: (1) Help determine whether financial institutions are serving the housing needs of their communities, (2) assist public officials in distributing public-sector investments so as to attract private investment to areas where it is needed, and (3) assist in identifying possible discriminatory lending patterns and enforcing anti-discrimination statutes.5 Current Actions: On April 18, 2014, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (79 FR 21926) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the FR 4021, Reg F, FR 4025, CFPB Regulation G (12 CFR 1007), Reg H–3, and FR HMDA–LAR.

Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the extension for three 
years, without revision, of the following reports:

    1. Report title: Notification of Nonfinancial Data Processing 
Activities.
    Agency form numbers: FR 4021.
    OMB control number: 7100-0306.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Reporters: Bank holding companies.
    Estimated annual reporting hours: 4 hours.
    Estimated average hours per response: 2 hours.
    Number of respondents: 2.
    General description of report: This information collection is 
required to obtain a benefit. (12 U.S.C. 1843(c)(8), (j) and (k)) and 
may be given confidential treatment upon request (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)).
    Abstract: Bank holding companies submit this notification to 
request permission to administer the 49-percent revenue limit on 
nonfinancial data processing activities on a business-line or multiple-
entity basis. A request may be filed in a letter form; there is no 
reporting form for this information collection.
    2. Report title: Recordkeeping Requirements Associated With 
Limitations on Interbank Liabilities.
    Agency form number: Regulation F.
    OMB control number: 7100-0331.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Reporters: State member banks.
    Estimated annual reporting hours: 6,672 hours.
    Estimated average time per response: 8 hours.
    Number of respondents: 834.
    General description of report: This information collection is 
mandatory pursuant to section 23 of the Federal Reserve Act, as added 
by section 308 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement 
Act of 1991 (FDICIA) (12 U.S.C. 371b-2). Because the Federal Reserve 
does not collect any information, no issue of confidentiality normally 
arises. However, if a compliance program becomes a Federal Reserve 
record during an examination, the information may be protected from 
disclosure under exemptions (b)(4) and (b)(8) of the Freedom of 
Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(8)).
    Abstract: Section 206.3 of Regulation F requires insured depository 
institutions to establish and maintain policies and procedures designed 
to prevent excessive exposure to correspondents in order to limit the 
risks that the failure of a depository institution would pose to 
insured depository institutions. The Federal Reserve accounts for the 
paperwork burden on state member banks for Regulation F compliance.
    3. Report title: Recordkeeping and Disclosure Requirements 
Associated With Regulation R.
    Agency form number: FR 4025.
    OMB control number: 7100-0316.

customers: 12,500 hours; Section 701, disclosures to brokers: 375 
hours; Section 723, recordkeeping; 188 hours; Section 741, disclosures 
to customers: 62,500 hours.
    Estimated average time per response: Section 701, disclosures to 
customers: 5 minutes; Section 701, disclosures to brokers: 15 minutes; 
Section 723, recordkeeping: 15 minutes; Section 741, disclosures to 
customers: 5 minutes.

    General description of report: This information collection is 
required to obtain a benefit pursuant to section 3(a)(4)(F) of the 
Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78c(a)(4)(F)) and may be given confidential 
treatment under the authority of the Freedom of Information Act (5 
U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(8)).
    Abstract: Regulation R implements certain exceptions for banks from 
the definition of broker under Section 3(a)(4) of the Securities 
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. 
Sections 701, 723, and 741 of Regulation R contain information 
collection requirements. Section 701 requires banks that wish to 
utilize the exemption in that section to make certain disclosures to 
the high net worth customer or institutional customer. In addition, 
section 701 requires banks that wish to utilize the exemption in that 
section to provide a notice to its broker-dealer partner regarding 
names and other identifying information about bank employees. Section 
723 requires a bank that chooses to rely on the exemption in that 
section to exclude certain trust or fiduciary accounts in determining 
its compliance with the chiefly compensated test in section 721 to 
maintain certain records relating to the excluded accounts. Section 741 
requires a bank relying on the exemption provided by that section to 
provide customers with a prospectus for the money market fund 
securities, not later than the time the customer authorizes the bank to 
effect the transaction in such securities, if the class of series of 
securities are not no-load.
    4. Report title: Registration of Mortgage Loan Originators.
    Agency form number: CFPB Regulation G (12 CFR 1007).
    OMB control number: 7100-0328.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Reporters: Employees of state member banks, certain subsidiaries of 
state member banks, branches and agencies of foreign banks that are 
regulated by the Federal Reserve, and commercial lending companies of 
foreign banks who act as residential mortgage loan originators (MLOs).
    Estimated annual reporting hours: MLOs (new) Initial set up and 
disclosure; 938 hours; MLOs (existing) Maintenance and disclosure: 
16,255 hours; MLOs (existing) Updates for changes: 2,391 hours;

    Estimated average time per response: MLOs (new) Initial set up and 
disclosure: 3.50 hours; MLOs (existing) Maintenance and disclosure: .85 
hours; MLOs (existing) Updates for changes: .25 hours; Depository 
Institutions and subsidiaries: 118 hours.

    General description of report: Section 1507 of the Secure and Fair

[[Page 42012]]

Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (the S.A.F.E. Act), 12 U.S.C. 
5106, requires that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) 
develop and maintain a system for registering individual MLOs of 
covered financial institutions supervised directly by the Bureau or 
regulated by a federal banking agency with the Nationwide Mortgage 
Licensing System and Registry. Section 1504 of the S.A.F.E. Act, 12 
U.S.C. 5103, requires that an individual desiring to engage in the 
business of a loan originator maintain an annual federal registration 
(or be licensed by an equivalent state regulatory scheme) and appear on 
the Registry with a unique identifier. Section 1007.103 of Regulation G 
implements this registration scheme on behalf of the Bureau, and 
Section 1007.105 of Regulation G requires that covered financial 
institutions provide the unique identifiers of MLOs to consumers. 12 
CFR 1007.103 thru 105. This information collection is mandatory.
    The unique identifier of MLOs must be made public and is not 
considered confidential. In addition, most of the information that MLOs 
submit in order to register with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing 
System and Registry will be publicly available. However, certain 
identifying data on individuals who act as MLOs are entitled to 
confidential treatment under (b)(6) of the Freedom of Information Act 
(FOIA), which protects from disclosure information that ``would 
constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.'' 5 
U.S.C. 552(b)(6).
    With respect to the information collection requirements imposed on 
depository institutions, because the requirements are that depository 
institutions retain their own records and make certain disclosures to 
customers, the FOIA would only be implicated if the Federal Reserve's 
examiners obtained a copy of these records as part of the examination 
or supervision process of a financial institution. However, records 
obtained in this manner are exempt from disclosure under FOIA exemption 
(b)(8), regarding examination-related materials. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8).
    Abstract: On July 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve amended Regulation 
H to implement the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing 
Act (the S.A.F.E. Act) with respect to its regulated entities, enacted 
July 30, 2008.\1\ On July 21, 2011, provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall 
Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) 
transferred certain S.A.F.E. Act responsibilities to the CFPB, 
including rulemaking authority for all federal depository institutions 
and supervisory authority for S.A.F.E. Act compliance for entities 
under the CFPB's jurisdiction. On December 19, 2011, the CFPB published 
an interim final rule establishing a new Regulation G,\2\ S.A.F.E. ACT 
Mortgage Licensing Act--Federal Registration of Residential Mortgage 
Loan Originators.\3\ The CFPB's rule did not impose any new substantive 
obligations on regulated persons or entities. The Federal Reserve 
retains supervisory authority for S.A.F.E. Act compliance for most 
Federal Reserve-supervised entities with consolidated assets of $10 
billion or less.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The CFPB's Regulation G requires employees of state member banks, 
certain subsidiaries of state member banks, branches and agencies of 
foreign banks that are regulated by the Federal Reserve, and commercial 
lending companies of foreign banks who act as residential mortgage loan 
originators (MLOs) to register with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing 
System and Registry (NMLSR), obtain a unique identifier, maintain this 
registration, and disclose to consumers upon request and through the 
NMLSR their unique identifier, and the MLO's employment history and 
publicly adjudicated disciplinary and enforcement actions. The CFPB's 
regulation also requires the institutions employing these MLOs to adopt 
and follow written policies and procedures to ensure their employees 
comply with these requirements and to disclose the unique identifiers 
of their MLOs.
    5. Report title: Recordkeeping and Disclosure Requirements 
Associated with Securities Transactions Pursuant to Regulation H.
    Agency form number: Reg H-3.
    OMB control number: 7100-0196.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Reporters: State member banks.
    Estimated annual reporting hours: 97,869 hours.
    Estimated average time per response: State member banks (de novo): 
recordkeeping, 40 hours.
    State member banks with trust departments: recordkeeping, 2 hours; 
disclosure, 16 hours. State member banks without trust departments: 
recordkeeping, 15 minutes; disclosure, 5 hours.
    Number of respondents: State member banks (de novo): 3; state 
member banks with trust departments: 228; state member banks without 
trust departments: 615.
    General description of report: Regulation H requirements are 
authorized by Section 23 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (``the 
34 Act''), 15 U.S.C. 78w, which empowers the Federal Reserve to make 
rules and regulations implementing those portions of the 34 Act for 
which it is responsible. The requirements of 12 CFR 208.34(c), (d), & 
(g) also are impliedly authorized by Section 9 of the Federal Reserve 
Act, 12 U.S.C. 325, which requires state member banks to submit to 
examinations by the Federal Reserve System. These securities 
transactions requirements appear to be reasonably related to the 
Federal Reserve's supervisory authority with respect to the safety and 
soundness of state member banks. Accordingly, the Federal Reserve is 
authorized by implication under 12 U.S.C. 325 to impose these 
recordkeeping, disclosure, and policy establishment requirements. The 
obligation of a state member bank to comply with the Regulation H 
requirements is mandatory, save for the limited exceptions set forth in 
12 CFR 208.34(a).
    Inasmuch as the Federal Reserve System does not collect or receive 
any information concerning securities transactions pursuant to these 
requirements, no issues of confidentiality normally will arise. If, 
however, these records were to come into the possession of the Federal 
Reserve, they may be protected from disclosure pursuant to exemption 4 
of the Freedom of Information Act (``FOIA''), 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), under 
the standards set forth in National Parks & Conservation Ass'n v. 
Morton, 498 F.2d 765 (D.C. Cir. 1974), to the extent an institution can 
establish the potential for substantial competitive harm. They also may 
be subject to withholding under FOIA exemption 6, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6), 
should disclosure constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal 
privacy. Additionally, if such information were included in the work 
papers of System examiners or abstracted in System reports of 
examination, the information also would be protected under exemption 8 
of FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). Any withholding determination would be 
made on a case-by-case basis in response to a specific request for 
disclosure of the information.
    Abstract: The Federal Reserve's Regulation H requires state member 
banks to maintain records for three years following a securities 
transaction. These requirements are necessary to protect the customer, 
to avoid or settle

[[Page 42013]]

customer disputes, and to protect the institution against potential 
liability arising under the anti-fraud and insider trading provisions 
of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
    6. Report title: HMDA Loan/Application Register.
    Agency form number: FR HMDA-LAR.
    OMB control number: 7100-0247.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Reporters: State member banks, subsidiaries of state member banks, 
subsidiaries of bank holding companies, U.S. branches and agencies of 
foreign banks (other than federal branches, federal agencies, and 
insured state branches of foreign banks), commercial lending companies 
owned or controlled by foreign banks, and organizations operating under 
section 25 or 25A of the Federal Reserve Act.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ The CFPB supervises, among other institutions, insured 
depository institutions with over $10 billion in assets and their 
affiliates (including affiliates that are themselves depository 
institutions regardless of asset size and subsidiaries of such 
affiliates).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Estimated annual reporting hours: 127,652 hours.
    Estimated average time per response: State member banks: 242 hours; 
mortgage subsidiaries: 192 hours.
    Number of respondents: State member banks: 514; mortgage 
subsidiaries: 17.
    General description of report: Section 304(j) of the Home Mortgage 
Disclosure Act (HMDA), which requires the Consumer Financial Protection 
Bureau (CFPB) to prescribe by regulation the form of a LAR that must be 
maintained by lending institutions, is mandatory for covered 
institutions. Regulation C implements this statutory provision and 
requires that reports be sent to the appropriate federal banking 
agency. HMDA requires that the LAR be made available to the public in 
the form prescribed by the CFPB. The CFPB is authorized to require 
certain deletions from the LAR information to protect the privacy of 
applicants and to protect depository institutions from liability under 
Federal or state privacy law. The deleted information is exempt from 
disclosure under that provision of HMDA and pursuant to Exemption 6 of 
the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)).
    Abstract: HMDA was enacted in 1975 and is implemented by Regulation 
C. HMDA requires depository and certain for-profit, non-depository 
institutions to collect, report to regulators, and disclose to the 
public data about originations and purchases of home mortgage loans 
(home purchase and refinancing) and home improvement loans, as well as 
loan applications that do not result in originations (for example, 
applications that are denied or withdrawn). HMDA was enacted to provide 
the public with loan data that can be used to: (1) Help determine 
whether financial institutions are serving the housing needs of their 
communities, (2) assist public officials in distributing public-sector 
investments so as to attract private investment to areas where it is 
needed, and (3) assist in identifying possible discriminatory lending 
patterns and enforcing anti-discrimination statutes.\5\
