Proposed Collection; Comment Request for Form 928, 69995 [2014-27724]

Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 226 / Monday, November 24, 2014 / Notices technology trends and better understand emerging technologies. The information is collected on a transactional basis and is used to ensure that safety and soundness requirements are being met. On July 28, 2014, OCC issued a notice for 60 days of comment concerning this collection. 79 FR 42823. One comment was received. One commenter asked whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the OCC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility. The commenter described the collection as an ‘‘anachronism’’ that ‘‘no longer reflects the realities and risks of current times.’’ The commenter further noted that the Internet has been widely used as a channel for offering and conducting banking services for many years and that the OCC likewise has many years of supervisory experience with ‘‘transactional Web sites,’’ which would seem to obviate the continued need for notice and collection of this information. Finally, the commenter stated that the information collection is not an effective way of understanding industry trends and emerging technologies, contending that FSAs as a group ‘‘tend to be slow adopters of new technology’’ and noting that national banks are not subject to a similar requirement. The OCC appreciates the commenter’s perspective. In response, the OCC will give careful consideration to the comment in connection with the OCC’s national bank and FSA rule integration efforts, in particular whether a notice requirement is still necessary for transactional Web sites. Comments continue to be solicited on: (a) Whether the collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the OCC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the OCC’s estimates of the burden of the information collections, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden of information collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
