Reporters: State member banks and uninsured state branches and agencies of foreign banks. Annual reporting hours: 195,846 hours. Estimated average hours per response: Banks: Specific availability policy disclosure and initial disclosures, 1 minute; notice in specific policy disclosure, 3 minutes; notice of exceptions, 3 minutes; locations where employees accept consumer deposits, 15 minutes; annual notice of new automated teller machines (ATMs), 5 hours; ATM changes in policy, 20 hours; notice of nonpayment, 1 minute; expedited recredit for consumers, 15 minutes; expedited recredit for banks, 15 minutes; consumer awareness, 1 minute. Consumers: Expedited recredit claim notice, 15 minutes. Number of respondents: 1,025. General description of report: This information collection is mandatory. Reg CC is authorized pursuant the EFAA, as amended, and the Check 21 Act (12 U.S.C. 4008 and 12 U.S.C. 5014, respectively). Because the Federal Reserve does not collect any information, no issue of confidentiality arises. However, if, during a compliance examination of a financial institution, a violation or possible violation of the EFAA or the Check 21 Act is noted then information regarding such violation may be kept confidential pursuant to Section (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). Abstract: Regulation CC requires banks to make funds deposited in transaction accounts available within specified time periods, disclose their availability policies to customers, and begin accruing interest on such deposits promptly. The disclosures are intended to alert customers that their ability to use deposited funds may be delayed, prevent unintentional (and potentially costly) overdrafts, and allow customers to compare the policies of different banks before deciding at which bank to deposit funds. The regulation also requires notice to the depositary bank and to a customer of nonpayment of a check. Model disclosure forms, clauses, and notices are appended to the regulation to ease compliance. Current Actions: On February 4, 2014, the Federal Reserve published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register for public comment (79 FR 6674).1 The NPRM contained a number of substantive amendments to Regulation CC (Availability of Funds 1 Docket No. R–1409. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Sep 19, 2014 Jkt 232001 and Collection of Checks).2 In the NPRM, the Federal Reserve also proposed to extend for three years, without revision, the current information collection in connection with Regulation CC. The comment period expired on May 2, 2014. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments on information collection aspect of the NPRM and therefore will proceed with extending the current information collection for three years, without revision, as proposed.
