SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from OMB for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) to include agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register PO 00000 Frm 00120 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the OCC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. OMB granted the OCC a six-month approval for the information collection requirements contained in the interim final rule entitled ‘‘Subordinated Debt Issued by a National Bank.’’ (December 2014 Interim Final Rule).1 The OCC obtained this approval under existing OMB Control No. 1557–0320, which contained the information collection requirements in the interim final rule entitled ‘‘Basel III Conforming Amendments Related to CrossReferences, Subordinated Debt and Limits Based on Regulatory Capital.’’ (February 2014 Interim Final Rule).2 The OCC proposes to extend OMB approval of the entire information collection for the standard three years. Title: Subordinated Debt. OMB Control No.: 1557–0320. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Burden Estimates: Prepayment of Subordinated Debt in Form of Call Option: 184 Respondents; 1.30 burden hours per respondent; 239 total burden hours. Authority to Limit Distributions: 42 Respondents; 0.5 hours per respondent; 21 total burden hours. Total Burden: 260 hours. Description: The OCC amended its rules governing subordinated debt twice in 2014. The first set of revisions, contained in the February 2014 Interim Final Rule, amended the rules applicable to both national banks and Federal savings associations (12 CFR 5.47 and 163.81, respectively). The second revisions, in the December 2014 Interim Final Rule, amended only the rules application to national banks. The February 2014 Interim Final Rule revised the requirements of 12 CFR 5.47 applicable to national banks. Specifically, those revisions require that all national banks must receive prior OCC approval in order to prepay subordinated debt that is included in tier 2 capital and certain banks must receive prior OCC approval to prepay subordinated debt that is not included in tier 2 capital. If the prepayment is in the form of a call option and the subordinated debt is included in tier 2 capital, a national bank must submit the 1 79 2 79 E:\FR\FM\14APN1.SGM FR 75417 (December 18, 2014).

forth in 12 CFR 6.4, after the capital distribution; or (4) the
