Minimum Security Devices and Procedures

    Under Sec. Sec.  21.2 and 21.4; and Sec. Sec.  568.2 and 568.4, 
national banks and savings associations are required to designate a 
security officer who must develop and administer a written security 
program. The security officer shall report at least annually to the 
institution's board of directors on the effectiveness of the security 
program. The substance of the report shall be reflected in the board's 
minutes. These requirements ensure that the security officer is 
responsible for the security program and that institution management 
and the board of directors are aware of the content and effectiveness 
of the program. These requirements ensure prudent institution 
management and institution safety and soundness.

Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)

    The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and Federal 
financial institution supervisory agencies \1\ (bank regulators) 
adopted the SAR in 1996 to simplify the process through which 
depository institutions inform their regulators and law enforcement 
about suspected criminal activity. The SAR was updated in 1999, 2002, 
2006, 2009 and 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Federal financial institution supervisory agencies are 
the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Board of 
Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board), Federal Deposit 
Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and National Credit Union 
Administration (NCUA).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In 1992, the Department of the Treasury was granted broad authority 
to require suspicious transaction reporting under the Bank Secrecy Act 
(BSA). See 31 U.S.C. 5318(g). FinCEN, which has been delegated 
authority to administer the BSA, joined with the bank regulators in 
1996 in requiring, on a consolidated form (the SAR form), reports of 
suspicious transactions. See 31 CFR 1020.320(a) (formerly 31 CFR 
103.18(a)). The filing of SARs is necessary to prevent and detect 
crimes involving depository institution funds, institution insiders, 
criminal transactions, and money laundering. These requirements are 
necessary to ensure institution safety and soundness.
    Banks and savings associations are required to maintain a copy of 
any SAR filed and the original or business record equivalent of any 
supporting documentation for a period of five years. The documents are 
necessary for criminal investigations and prosecutions.

Procedures for Monitoring Bank Secrecy Act Compliance

    Under 12 CFR 21.21, national banks and savings associations are 
required to develop and provide for the continued administration of a 
program reasonably designed to assure and monitor their compliance with 
the BSA and applicable Treasury regulations. The compliance program 
shall be in writing, approved by the board of directors and noted in 
the minutes. These requirements are necessary to ensure institution 
compliance with the BSA and applicable Treasury regulations.
    Type of Review: Regular.
    Affected Public: Business, for-profit institutions, and non-profit.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,485.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 714,205 hours.
    Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized 
and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will 
become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:
    (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the 
information shall have practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of the OCC's estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, and
    (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, 
maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
