SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OCC is requesting comment on a revision to the following information collection: Title: Annual Company-Run Stress Test Reporting Template and Documentation for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets of $10 Billion to $50 Billion under the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. OMB Control No.: 1557–0311. Description: Section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act 1 (Dodd-Frank Act) requires certain financial companies, including national banks and Federal savings associations, to conduct annual stress tests 2 and requires the primary financial regulatory agency 3 of those financial companies to issue regulations implementing the stress test requirements.4 A national bank or Federal savings association is a ‘‘covered institution,’’ and therefore subject to the stress test requirements, if its total consolidated assets exceed $10 billion. Under section 165(i)(2), a covered institution 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 may require.5 On October 9, 2012, the OCC published in the Federal Register a final rule implementing the section 165(i)(2) annual stress test requirements.6 On October 22, 2013 the OCC published in the Federal Register a notice describing the reports and information required under section 165(i)(2) for covered institutions with average total consolidated assets between $10 to $50 billion.7 The OCC proposed revisions to these templates on October 20, 2015.8 The OCC received one comment. The OCC is now finalizing these revisions, as described below. The OCC is finalizing the following revisions and clarifications for the OCC DFAST 10–50 report, effective for the 2016 stress test cycle: Changing the dates on the reporting templates to match the revised ‘‘as of’’ date from September 30 to December 31, changing the reporting submission due date from March to July, and modifying the reporting instructions to clarify a number of items. Additionally, the line item ‘‘Qualifying subordinated debt and redeemable preferred stock’’ will be eliminated in the capital section of the balance sheet, and the report form will include updated references to specific reporting items on the Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report). The OCC received one comment letter. The comment letter requested updates to several Call Report references in the reporting templates and clarification to the balance sheet capital section of the instructions. In response to this comment, the templates and instructions have been updated with revised references that the OCC believes will provide additional clarity. The OCC has worked closely with the Board and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to make the agencies’ respective rules implementing the annual stress testing requirements under the Dodd-Frank Act consistent and comparable by requiring similar standards for scope of application, scenarios, data collection and reporting 1 Public 5 12 2 12 6 77 asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376, July 2010.
