Reporters: Individuals and businesses. Estimated annual reporting hours: 245 hours. Estimated average hours per response: FR G–1: 2.5 hours; FR G–2: 15 minutes; FR G–3: 10 minutes; FR G–4: 2.0 hours; FR T–4: 10 minutes; FR U–1: 10 minutes. Number of respondents: FR G–1: 52; FR G–2: 25; FR G–3: 6; FR G–4: 12; FR T–4: 4; FR U–1: 4. General description of reports: This information collection is mandatory (15 U.S.C. 78g). In addition, the FR T–4 is required by Section 220.6 of Regulation T (12 CFR 220.6), the FR U–1 is required by Sections 221.3(c)(1)(i) and (2)(i) of Regulation U (12 CFR 221.3(c)(1)(i) and (2)(i)), and the FR G–1, G–2, G–3, and G–4 are required by Sections 221.3(b)(1), (2), and (3), and (c)(1)(ii) and (2)(ii) of Regulation U (12 CFR 221.3(b)(1), (2), and (3), and (c)(1)(ii) and (2)(ii)). The FR G–1 and FR G–4 collect financial information, including a balance sheet, from nonbank lenders subject to Regulation U. Some of these lenders may be individuals or nonbank entities that do not make this information publicly available; release could therefore cause substantial harm to the competitive position of the respondent or result in an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. In those cases, the information could be withheld under Exemption 4 or Exemption 6 of FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (6), respectively. Confidentiality determinations must be made on a case by case basis. Because the FR T–4, FR U–1, and FR G–3 are not submitted to the Federal Reserve System, and the FR G–2 does not contain any information considered to be confidential, no confidentiality determination is necessary for these reports. Abstract: The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 authorizes the Federal Reserve to regulate securities credit extended by brokers and dealers, banks, and other lenders. The purpose statements, FR T–4, FR U–1, and FR G–3, are recordkeeping requirements for brokers and dealers, banks, and other lenders, respectively, to document the purpose of their loans secured by margin stock. Margin stock is defined as (1) stocks that are registered on a national securities exchange or any over-the-counter VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:59 Oct 16, 2014 Jkt 235001 security designated for trading in the National Market System, (2) debt securities (bonds) that are convertible into margin stock, and (3) shares of most mutual funds. Lenders other than brokers and dealers and banks must register and deregister with the Federal Reserve using the FR G–1 and FR G–2, respectively, and they must file an annual report (FR G–4) while registered. The Federal Reserve uses the data to identify lenders subject to Regulation U, to verify their compliance with the regulation, and to monitor margin credit. 2.

(2)(ii) of Regulation U (12 CFR 221.3(b)(1), (2), and (3), and 
(c)(1)(ii) and (2)(ii)).
    The FR G-1 and FR G-4 collect financial information, including a 
balance sheet, from nonbank lenders subject to Regulation U. Some of 
these lenders may be individuals or nonbank entities that do not make 
this information publicly available; release could therefore cause 
substantial harm to the competitive position of the respondent or 
result in an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. In those cases, 
the information could be withheld under Exemption 4 or Exemption 6 of 
FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (6), respectively. Confidentiality 
determinations must be made on a case by case basis. Because the FR T-
4, FR U-1, and FR G-3 are not submitted to the Federal Reserve System, 
and the FR G-2 does not contain any information considered to be 
confidential, no confidentiality determination is necessary for these 
reports.
    Abstract: The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 authorizes the 
Federal Reserve to regulate securities credit extended by brokers and 
dealers, banks, and other lenders. The purpose statements, FR T-4, FR 
U-1, and FR G-3, are recordkeeping requirements for brokers and 
dealers, banks, and other lenders, respectively, to document the 
purpose of their loans secured by margin stock. Margin stock is defined 
as (1) stocks that are registered on a national securities exchange or 
any over-the-counter security designated for trading in the National 
Market System, (2) debt securities (bonds) that are convertible into 
margin stock, and (3) shares of most mutual funds. Lenders other than 
brokers and dealers and banks must register and deregister with the 
Federal Reserve using the FR G-1 and FR G-2, respectively, and they 
must file an annual report (FR G-4) while registered. The Federal 
Reserve uses the data to identify lenders subject to Regulation U, to 
verify their compliance with the regulation, and to monitor margin 
credit.

    The information solicited in these application forms is not 
considered confidential, but applicants may request that parts of the 
forms be kept confidential. Any request for confidential treatment of 
information must be accompanied by a detailed justification for 
confidentiality. For example, a justification for confidential 
treatment of business information under exemption 4 of the Freedom of 
Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), should demonstrate that 
substantial harm would result from public release of the information. 
Submissions of these forms may also be exempt under exemption 6 of 
FOIA, 5. U.S.C. 552(b)(6), if a submitter identifies information of a 
personal nature the disclosure of which would result in a clearly 
unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Additionally, exemption 8 of 
FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8) may apply to the extent the reported 
information is contained in or related to examination reports. Each 
request for confidentiality that is received by a submitter of these 
forms will need to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
