General description of report: The FRY–14 series of reports are authorized by section 165 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act), which requires the Federal Reserve to ensure that certain bank holding companies (BHCs) and nonbank financial companies supervised by the Federal Reserve are subject to enhanced riskbased and leverage standards in order to mitigate risks to the financial stability of the United States (12 U.S.C. 5365). Additionally, Section 5 of the BHC Act authorizes the Board to issue regulations and conduct information collections with regard to the supervision of BHCs (12 U.S.C. 1844). As these data are collected as part of the supervisory process, they are subject to confidential treatment under exemption 8 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). In addition, commercial and financial information contained in these information collections may be exempt from disclosure under exemption 4 of FOIA (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Such exemptions would be made on a caseby-case basis. Abstract: The data collected through the FR Y–14A/Q/M schedules provide the Federal Reserve with the additional information and perspective needed to help ensure that large BHCs have strong, E:\FR\FM\16DEN1.SGM 16DEN1 74722 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 241 / Tuesday, December 16, 2014 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES firm-wide risk measurement and management processes supporting their internal assessments of capital adequacy and that their capital resources are sufficient given their business focus, activities, and resulting risk exposures. The annual Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) exercise is also complemented by other Federal Reserve supervisory efforts aimed at enhancing the continued viability of large BHCs, including continuous monitoring of BHCs’ planning and management of liquidity and funding resources and regular assessments of credit, market and operational risks, and associated risk management practices.

In order to fully evaluate the data submissions, the Federal Reserve may conduct follow up discussions with or request responses to follow up questions from respondents, as needed.

The monthly FR Y–14M comprises three loan- and portfoliolevel collections, and one detailed address matching collection to supplement two of the portfolio and loan-level collections. Both the FR Y– 14Q and the FR Y–14M are used to support supervisory stress test models and for continuous monitoring efforts. Current Actions: On October 1, 2014, the Federal Reserve published a final Federal Register notice (79 FR 59264) implementing several changes to the FR–14A/Q/M and extending the public comment period by 30 days regarding the agreement-level/asset category counterparty information. The comment period expired on October 31, 2014. The Federal Reserve received one comment. The comment is summarized and addressed below. Summary of Comment The Federal Reserve received one comment letter addressing the agreement-level/asset category counterparty information. The commenter requested clarification on several items, which will be provided 1 BHCs that must re-submit their capital plan generally also must provide a revised FR Y–14A in connection with their resubmission. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:38 Dec 15, 2014 Jkt 235001 through updated instructions as appropriate. More substantively, the commenter stated that the information collection as originally proposed on July 15, 2014 (79 FR 41276) could be provided, but noted that the information collected by sub-schedules L.5 and L.6 would require a significant amount of resources. Specifically, the commenter requested that implementation of these sub-schedules be delayed to March 31, 2015. As stated in the October 1, 2014, Federal Register publication, more detailed counterparty data would allow the Federal Reserve to assess the reasonableness of the BHC’s modelbased estimates used as key inputs to the supervisory stress test as well as ensure the comparability of results across BHCs. Therefore, the Federal Reserve will keep sub-schedules L.5 and L.6 as finalized October 1, 2014 for the September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2014 reporting periods, with two minor exceptions noted below. Furthermore, the Federal Reserve will implement FR Y–14Q Schedule L as originally proposed on July 15, 2014 effective March 31, 2015. FR Y–14Q Counterparty Schedule As noted above, effective March 31, 2015, Schedule L (Counterparty) of the FR Y–14Q will be revised to collect information as originally proposed on July 15, 2014. Specifically, the schedule will require that tables L.5.2 and L.6.2 be reported at a legal-entity, nettingagreement level. Furthermore, table L.5.2 will include the asset subcategories as originally proposed for L.5.2. Tables L.5.1 and L.6.1 will remain as finalized on October 1, 2014, and continue to require reporting at a legalentity, netting-agreement level. However, the commenter specifically also noted that the items ‘‘CDS Hedge Stressed CR01’’ and ‘‘CSA Contractual Features’’ of table L.6.1 would be difficult to provide for the September 30, 2014, reporting period. The Federal Reserve appreciates the commenter’s concerns regarding these items and makes these items optional through the December 31, 2014, reporting period, after which they will be mandatory.

    Current Actions: On October 1, 2014, the Federal Reserve published 
a final Federal Register notice (79 FR 59264) implementing several 
changes to the FR-14A/Q/M and extending the public comment period by 30 
days regarding the agreement-level/asset category counterparty 
information. The comment period expired on October 31, 2014. The 
Federal Reserve received one comment. The comment is summarized and 
addressed below.

Summary of Comment

    The Federal Reserve received one comment letter addressing the 
agreement-level/asset category counterparty information. The commenter 
requested clarification on several items, which will be provided 
through updated instructions as appropriate. More substantively, the 
commenter stated that the information collection as originally proposed 
on July 15, 2014 (79 FR 41276) could be provided, but noted that the 
information collected by sub-schedules L.5 and L.6 would require a 
significant amount of resources. Specifically, the commenter requested 
that implementation of these sub-schedules be delayed to March 31, 
2015.
    As stated in the October 1, 2014, Federal Register publication, 
more detailed counterparty data would allow the Federal Reserve to 
assess the reasonableness of the BHC's model-based estimates used as 
key inputs to the supervisory stress test as well as ensure the 
comparability of results across BHCs. Therefore, the Federal Reserve 
will keep sub-schedules L.5 and L.6 as finalized October 1, 2014 for 
the September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2014 reporting periods, with 
two minor exceptions noted below. Furthermore, the Federal Reserve will 
implement FR Y-14Q Schedule L as originally proposed on July 15, 2014 
effective March 31, 2015.

FR Y-14Q

Counterparty Schedule

    As noted above, effective March 31, 2015, Schedule L (Counterparty) 
of the FR Y-14Q will be revised to collect information as originally 
proposed on July 15, 2014. Specifically, the schedule will require that 
tables L.5.2 and L.6.2 be reported at a legal-entity, netting-agreement 
level. Furthermore, table L.5.2 will include the asset sub-categories 
as originally proposed for L.5.2. Tables L.5.1 and L.6.1 will remain as 
finalized on October 1, 2014, and continue to require reporting at a 
legal-entity, netting-agreement level. However, the commenter 
specifically also noted that the items ``CDS Hedge Stressed CR01'' and 
``CSA Contractual Features'' of table L.6.1 would be difficult to 
provide for the September 30, 2014, reporting period. The Federal 
Reserve appreciates the commenter's concerns regarding these items and 
makes these items optional through the December 31, 2014, reporting 
period, after which they will be mandatory.
