Information Collection; Limitations on Pass-Through Charges, 33674-33675 [2016-12554]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 33674 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 103 / Friday, May 27, 2016 / Notices U.S.C. 611a, the Federal Reserve may ‘‘issue rules and regulations’’ governing such entities ‘‘consistent with and in furtherance of the purposes’’ of that subchapter. Because the information collection is called for in guidance and not in a statute or regulation, it is considered voluntary. Because the information collected by the Proposed Guidance is maintained at the institutions, issues of confidentiality would not normally arise. Should the information be obtained by the Board in the course of an examination, it would be exempt from disclosure under exemption 8 of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). In addition, some or all of the information may be confidential commercial or financial information protected from disclosure under exemption 4 of FOIA, under the standards set forth in National Parks & Conservation Ass’n v. Morton, 498 F.2d 765 (D.C. Cir. 1974). Abstract: The interagency guidance outlines high-level principles related to safe and sound leveraged lending activities, including underwriting considerations, assessing and documenting enterprise value, risk management expectations for credits awaiting distribution, stress testing expectations and portfolio management, and risk management expectations. This guidance applies to all financial institutions substantively engaged in leveraged lending activities supervised by the Federal Reserve, FDIC, and OCC (the Agencies). The Agencies identified certain aspects of the proposed guidance that may constitute a collection of information. In particular, these aspects are the provisions that state a banking organization should (a) have underwriting policies for leveraged lending, including stress testing procedures for leveraged credits; (b) have risk management policies, including stress testing procedures for pipeline exposures; and (c) have policies and procedures for incorporating the results of leveraged credit and pipeline stress tests into the firm’s overall stress testing framework. Although the guidance is applicable to all institutions that originate or participate in leverage lending, due to the large exposures created by these types of loans, these credits are most likely originated primarily by larger institutions. Current Actions: On March 15, 2016, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 13791) requesting public comment for 60 days on the proposal to extend the FR 4203 for three years without revision. The VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:00 May 26, 2016 Jkt 238001 comment period for the notice expired on May 16, 2016. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments, and the information collection will be extended as proposed. 3.

General description of report: This information collection is required by the Commodity Exchange Act (7 U.S.C. Section 2(c)(2)(E)), the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C.

These requirements permit banking organizations under the Federal Reserve’s supervision to engage in offexchange transactions in foreign currency with retail customers and to describe various requirements with which banking organizations must comply to conduct such transactions. Current Actions: On March 17, 2016, the Board published a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 14444) requesting public comment for 60 days on the proposal to extend the FR 4203 for three years without revision.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33675 Proposed Project Eisenberg Center Voluntary Customer Survey Generic Clearance The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) requests that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) renew under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 AHRQ’s Generic Clearance to collect information from users of work products and services produced by AHRQ’s John M. Eisenberg Center for Clinical Decisions and Communications Science (Eisenberg Center). The Eisenberg Center is an innovative effort aimed at improving communication of findings to a variety of audiences (‘‘customers’’), including consumers, clinicians, and health care policymakers. The Eisenberg Center compiles research results into a variety of useful formats for stakeholders. This effort has the following goals: (1) Conduct research into effective communication of research findings in order to improve the usability and rapid incorporation of findings into medical practice and decision making. (2) Conduct research into effective strategies for disseminating evidencebased products, tools, and resources to consumers, clinicians, and other health care professionals, and policymakers. (3) Evaluate outcomes reported by clinicians and other health care professionals resulting from participation in continuing medical education (CME) initiatives and activities. (4) Conduct research into factors associated with successful collaboration between AHRQ and partnering institutions and organizations in synthesizing, translating, and disseminating evidence-based research. Clearance is being requested to cover a three-year period in which differing numbers of products and research activities may be conducted during each year. The collections proposed include activities to assist in the development of materials to be disseminated through the Eisenberg Center and to provide feedback to AHRQ on the extent to which these products meet customer needs. These materials include summary documents that summarize and translate the findings of research reports for various decision-making audiences, such as consumers, clinicians, and policymakers. The summaries are designed to help these decision makers use research evidence to maximize the benefits of health care, minimize harm, and optimize the use of health care resources. In addition, each year, a unique research project will be undertaken to study successful approaches to disseminating AHRQ E:\FR\FM\27MYN1.SGM 27MYN1
