Kuiper or Manuel E. Cabeza, at the FDIC address above. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposal to renew the following currentlyapproved collection of information: 1. Title: Annual Stress Test Reporting; Over $50 Billion Templates. OMB Number: 3064–0189. Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks. Frequency of Response: Annually. Estimated Number of Respondents: 4. Estimated Number of Responses: 1. Estimated Time per Response: 1,114 hours. Total Annual Burden: 4,456 hours. General Description: Section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘DoddFrank Act’’) requires certain financial companies, including state nonmember banks and state savings associations, to conduct annual stress tests and requires the primary financial regulatory agency of those financial companies to issue regulations implementing the stress test requirements. A state nonmember bank or state savings association is a ‘‘covered bank’’ and therefore subject to the stress test requirements if its total consolidated assets are more than $10 billion. Under section 165(i)(2), a covered bank is required to submit to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (‘‘Board’’) and to its primary financial regulatory agency a report at such time, in such form, and containing such information as the primary financial regulatory agency shall require. The revisions to the DFAST–14A reporting templates consist of clarifying instructions, adding data items, deleting data items, and redefining existing data items. The proposed revisions also include a shift of the as-of date in accordance with modifications to the FDIC’s stress testing rule.1 These revisions also reflect the implementation of the final Basel III regulatory capital rule. On July 9, 2013, the FDIC approved an interim final rule that will revise and replace the FDIC’s risk-based and leverage capital requirements to be consistent with agreements reached by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision in ‘‘Basel III: A Global Regulatory Framework for More Resilient Banks and Banking Systems’’ (Basel III).2 The final rule was published in the Federal Register on April 14, 2014 (‘‘Revised Capital Framework’’).3 The revisions include implementation of a new FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 1 See 79 FR 69365 (November 21, 2014).

In addition, the rule will amend the methodologies for determining risk weighted assets. All banking organizations that are not subject to the Advanced Approaches Rule were required to comply with the Revised Capital Framework, as of January 1, 2015. The proposed changes would (1) increase consistency between the DFAST–14A with the FR Y–14A, CALL Report, FFIEC 101, and FFIEC 102; (2) remove the requirement to calculate tier 1 common capital and the tier 1 common ratio; and (3) shift the as-of dates by one quarter in accordance with the modifications to the stress test rules. Furthermore, the FDIC understands that the Board is currently collecting information for the Summary Schedule via XML technology, and the FDIC would use a similar format to enhance consistency and reduce regulatory burden. Technical details on these forms would be provided separately. Schedule A (Summary)—A.1.c.1 (General RWA) This schedule would be removed in accordance with the proposed revisions to eliminate use of the tier 1 common ratio, effective for the 2016 DFAST submission. Schedule A (Summary)—Revisions to Schedule A.1.c.2 (Standardized RWA) This schedule would be modified to increase consistency with the FFIEC 102. Specifically, the items of the existing market risk-weighted asset portion would be replaced with the appropriate items from the FFIEC 102. Schedule A (Summary)—Revisions to Schedule A.1.d (Capital) The FDIC removed certain items related to tier 1 common capital, effective for the 2016 DFAST submission. Additionally, the FDIC added one item that captures the aggregate non-significant investments in the capital of unconsolidated financial institutions in the form of common stock and breaking out two items related to deferred tax assets into the amount before valuation allowances and the associated valuation allowance.

    1. Title: Annual Stress Test Reporting; Over $50 Billion Templates.
    OMB Number: 3064-0189.
    Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks.
    Frequency of Response: Annually.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 4.
    Estimated Number of Responses: 1.
    Estimated Time per Response: 1,114 hours.
    Total Annual Burden: 4,456 hours.
    General Description: Section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall 
Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act'') requires 
certain financial companies, including state nonmember banks and state 
savings associations, to conduct annual stress tests and requires the 
primary financial regulatory agency of those financial companies to 
issue regulations implementing the stress test requirements. A state 
nonmember bank or state savings association is a ``covered bank'' and 
therefore subject to the stress test requirements if its total 
consolidated assets are more than $10 billion. Under section 165(i)(2), 
a covered bank is required to submit to the Board of Governors of the 
Federal Reserve System (``Board'') and to its primary financial 
regulatory agency a report at such time, in such form, and containing 
such information as the primary financial regulatory agency shall 
require.
    The revisions to the DFAST-14A reporting templates consist of 
clarifying instructions, adding data items, deleting data items, and 
redefining existing data items. The proposed revisions also include a 
shift of the as-of date in accordance with modifications to the FDIC's

of the final Basel III regulatory capital rule. On July 9, 2013, the

FDIC's risk-based and leverage capital requirements to be consistent

in ``Basel III: A Global Regulatory Framework for More Resilient Banks 
and Banking Systems'' (Basel III).\2\ The final rule was published in 
the Federal Register on April 14, 2014 (``Revised Capital 
Framework'').\3\ The revisions include implementation of a new 
definition of regulatory capital, a new common equity tier 1 minimum 
capital requirement, a higher minimum tier 1 capital requirement, and, 
for banking organizations subject to the Advanced Approaches capital 
rules, a supplementary leverage ratio that incorporates a broader set 
of exposures in the denominator measure. In addition, the rule will 
amend the methodologies for determining risk weighted assets. All 
banking organizations that are not subject to the Advanced Approaches 
Rule were required to comply with the Revised Capital Framework, as of 
January 1, 2015.

capital of unconsolidated financial institutions in the form of common 
stock and breaking out two items related to deferred tax assets into 
the amount before valuation allowances and the associated valuation 
allowance. The additional information from these changes would result 
in two existing items converting to derived items based

for the PPNR Metrics schedule changes will be the 2017 DFAST
