Definitions Several commenters, as well as attendees of the November 2015 Operator Workshop, expressed serious concerns about the use of the word ‘‘predominant.’’ These concerns centered on how the usage of predominant attributes is poorly defined, difficult to verify compliance with, and risks improper categorization of pipeline risk. From a technical standpoint, operators indicated it was more difficult for them to generalize values into a ‘‘predominant’’ value than to submit actual values. For these reasons, submitting a ‘‘predominant’’ value will always be optional. Appendix A of the NPMS Operator Standards details the data elements for which ‘‘predominant’’ is an option. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES V. Timeline for Collection of New Data Elements PHMSA has heard operators’ and industry’s concerns regarding the amount of time needed to compile, research, and/or prepare the data required for this information collection. PHMSA will collect the new data elements in three phases. Phase 1 data will be collected the first submission year after the effective date, Phase 2 data will be collected the second submission year after the effective date, and Phase 3 data will be collected in 2024. The data elements in each phase are listed below: Phase 1 • Pipe diameter • Commodity detail • Pipe material • Pipe grade • Wall thickness • Pipe joining method • MAOP/MOP • SMYS • Seam type • Onshore/offshore • Inline inspection (yes/no) • Class location • Gas HCA segment • FRP sequence number • Abandoned pipelines • Pump and compressor stations • Breakout tanks • LNG plants Phase 2 • Decade of installation VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:02 Jun 21, 2016 Jkt 238001 • • • • • • Segment could affect an HCA Assessment method Assessment year Coated (yes/no) Gas storage fields Mainline block valves Phase 3 • Positional accuracy conforms with new standards (note that operators are encouraged to submit their centerlines with the new accuracy standard as the data becomes available) VI. Summary of Impacted Collection The following information is provided for this information collection: (1) Title of the information collection, (2) OMB control number, (3) Current expiration date, (4) Type of request, (5) Abstract of the information collection activity, (6) Description of affected public, (7) Frequency of collection, and (8) Estimate of total annual reporting and recordkeeping burden.

Type of Review: Revision of a Previously Approved Information Collection. Abstract: Each operator of a pipeline facility (except distribution lines and gathering lines) must provide PHMSA geospatial data for their pipeline system and contact information. The provided information is incorporated into NPMS to support various regulatory programs, pipeline inspections, and authorized external customers. Following the initial submission of the requested data, the operator must make a new submission to NPMS if any changes occur so PHMSA can maintain and improve the accuracy of the NPMS’s information. Respondents: Operators of natural gas, hazardous liquid, and liquefied natural gas pipelines. Number of Respondents: 1,211. Number of Responses: 1,211. Frequency: Annual. Estimate of Total Annual Burden: 171,983 hours.

    Under 12 CFR 21.2 and 21.4 and 12 CFR 168.2 and 168.4, national 
banks and Federal savings associations are required to designate a 
security officer who must develop and administer a written security

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 each institution has a security 
officer who is responsible for the institution's security program and 
that the institution's management and board of directors are aware of 
the content and effectiveness of the program. These requirements are 
necessary to ensure prudent institution management and safety and 
soundness.

Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)

    The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and Federal 
financial institution supervisory agencies \1\ 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 2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Federal financial institution supervisory agencies are 
the 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). In 1996, FinCEN, which has delegated 
authority to administer the BSA, joined with the Federal financial 
institution supervisory agencies in requiring, on a consolidated 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 BSA compliance program 
shall be reduced to 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.
    On March 25, 2016, the OCC published a notice for 60 days of 
comment concerning this collection, 81 FR 16277. No comments were 
received. Comments continue to be 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.
