General Description of Report This quarterly information collection is mandatory for market risk institutions, defined for this purpose as those institutions that are subject to the market risk capital rule as incorporated VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Jul 01, 2016 Jkt 238001 into Subpart F of the agencies’ regulatory capital rules (market risk institutions).1 All data reported in the FFIEC 102 are available to the public. Each market risk institution is required to file the FFIEC 102 for the agencies’ use in assessing the reasonableness and accuracy of the institution’s calculation of its minimum capital requirements under the market risk capital rule and in evaluating the institution’s capital in relation to its risks. Additionally, the market risk information collected in the FFIEC 102: (a) Permits the agencies to monitor the market risk profile of and evaluate the impact and competitive implications of the market risk capital rule on individual market risk institutions and the industry as a whole; (b) provides the most current statistical data available to identify areas of market risk on which to focus for onsite and offsite examinations; (c) allows the agencies to assess and monitor the levels and components of each reporting institution’s risk-based capital requirements for market risk and the adequacy of the institution’s capital under the market risk capital rule; and (d) assists market risk institutions in validating their implementation of the market risk framework. Discussion of Proposed Revisions 1. Reporting the Legal Entity Identifier The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a 20-digit alpha-numeric code that uniquely identifies entities that engage in financial transactions. The recent financial crisis spurred the development of a Global LEI System (GLEIS). Internationally, regulators and market participants have recognized the importance of the LEI as a key improvement in financial data systems. The Group of Twenty (G–20) nations directed the Financial Stability Board to lead the coordination of international regulatory work and deliver concrete recommendations on the GLEIS by mid2012, which in turn were endorsed by the G–20 later that same year. In January 2013, the LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC), which includes regulators from around the world, was 1 12 CFR 3.201 (OCC); 12 CFR 217.201 (Board); and 12 CFR 324.201 (FDIC). The market risk capital rule generally applies to any banking institution with aggregate trading assets and trading liabilities equal to (a) 10 percent or more of quarter-end total assets or (b) $1 billion or more. The statutory provisions that grant the agencies the authority to impose capital requirements are 12 U.S.C. 161 (national banks), 12 U.S.C. 324 (state member banks), 12 U.S.C. 1844(c) (bank holding companies), 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b) (savings and loan holding companies), 12 U.S.C. 5365 (U.S. intermediate holding companies), 12 U.S.C. 1817 (insured state nonmember commercial and savings banks), and 12 U.S.C. 1464 (savings associations). PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 established to oversee the GLEIS on an interim basis. With the establishment of the full Global LEI Foundation in 2014, the ROC continues to review and develop broad policy standards for LEIs. The OCC, the Board, and the FDIC are all members of the ROC. The LEI system is designed to facilitate several financial stability objectives, including the provision of higher quality and more accurate financial data. In the United States, the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) has recommended that regulators and market participants continue to work together to improve the quality and comprehensiveness of financial data both nationally and globally. In this regard, the FSOC also has recommended that its member agencies promote the use of the LEI in reporting requirements and rulemakings, where appropriate.2 Effective beginning October 31, 2014, the Board started requiring holding companies to provide their LEI on the cover pages of the FR Y–6, FR Y–7, and FR Y–10 reports 3 only if a holding company already has an LEI. Thus, if a reporting holding company does not have an LEI, it is not required to obtain one for purposes of these Board reports. Additionally, effective for December 2015, the Board expanded the collection of the LEI to all holding company subsidiary banking and nonbanking legal entities reportable on certain schedules of the FR Y–10 and in one section of the FR Y–6 and FR Y–7 if an LEI has already been issued for the reportable entity.4 With respect to the FFIEC 102, the agencies are proposing to have reporting institutions provide their LEI on the cover page of each report beginning December 31, 2016, only if an institution already has an LEI. As with the Board reports, an institution that does not have an LEI would not be required to obtain one for purposes of reporting it on the FFIEC 102. 2. Changes to the Board’s Respondent Panel On December 14, 2012, the Board invited comment on a notice of proposed rulemaking (proposed Regulation YY) 5 that would have required a Foreign Banking Organization (FBO) with $50 billion in 2 Financial Stability Oversight Council 2015 Annual Report, page 14, http://www.treasury.gov/ initiatives/fsoc/studies-reports/Documents/ 2015%20FSOC%20Annual%20Report.pdf. 3 FR Y–6, Annual Report of Holding Companies; FR Y–7, Annual Report of Foreign Banking Organizations; and FR Y–10, Report of Changes in Organizational Structure (OMB No. 7100–0297). 4 80 FR 38202 (July 2, 2015). 5 77 FR 76628 (December 28, 2012).

On February 18, 2014, the Board adopted a final rule implementing enhanced prudential standards for FBOs (Regulation YY),6 with certain revisions in response to comments. The Board indicated in the preamble to Regulation YY that it would address the reporting requirements for U.S. IHCs at a later date. Accordingly, based on the background provided above, the agencies propose to add U.S. IHCs that are subject to the market risk capital rule to the FFIEC 102 panel of Board respondents.7 For such U.S. IHCs, the agencies are proposing to implement these changes beginning with the December 31, 2016, report date. sradovich on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES Public comment is requested on all aspects of this joint notice.

General Description of Report

    This quarterly information collection is mandatory for market risk 
institutions, defined for this purpose as those institutions that are 
subject to the market risk capital rule as incorporated into Subpart F 
of the agencies' regulatory capital rules (market risk 
institutions).\1\ All data reported in the FFIEC 102 are available to 
the public. Each market risk institution is required to file the FFIEC 
102 for the agencies' use in assessing the reasonableness and accuracy 
of the institution's calculation of its minimum capital requirements 
under the market risk capital rule and in evaluating the institution's 
capital in relation to its risks. Additionally, the market risk 
information collected in the FFIEC 102: (a) Permits the agencies to 
monitor the market risk profile of and evaluate the impact and 
competitive implications of the market risk capital rule on individual 
market risk institutions and the industry as a whole; (b) provides the 
most current statistical data available to identify areas of market 
risk on which to focus for onsite and offsite examinations; (c) allows 
the agencies to assess and monitor the levels and components of each 
reporting institution's risk-based capital requirements for market risk 
and the adequacy of the institution's capital under the market risk 
capital rule; and (d) assists market risk institutions in validating 
their implementation of the market risk framework.

    \1\ 12 CFR 3.201 (OCC); 12 CFR 217.201 (Board); and 12 CFR 
324.201 (FDIC). The market risk capital rule generally applies to 
any banking institution with aggregate trading assets and trading 
liabilities equal to (a) 10 percent or more of quarter-end total 
assets or (b) $1 billion or more. The statutory provisions that 
grant the agencies the authority to impose capital requirements are 
12 U.S.C. 161 (national banks), 12 U.S.C. 324 (state member banks), 
12 U.S.C. 1844(c) (bank holding companies), 12 U.S.C. 1467a(b) 
(savings and loan holding companies), 12 U.S.C. 5365 (U.S. 
intermediate holding companies), 12 U.S.C. 1817 (insured state 
nonmember commercial and savings banks), and 12 U.S.C. 1464 (savings 
associations).

Discussion of Proposed Revisions

1. Reporting the Legal Entity Identifier

    The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is a 20-digit alpha-numeric code 
that uniquely identifies entities that engage in financial 
transactions. The recent financial crisis spurred the development of a 
Global LEI System (GLEIS). Internationally, regulators and market 
participants have recognized the importance of the LEI as a key 
improvement in financial data systems. The Group of Twenty (G-20) 
nations directed the Financial Stability Board to lead the coordination 
of international regulatory work and deliver concrete recommendations 
on the GLEIS by mid-2012, which in turn were endorsed by the G-20 later 
that same year. In January 2013, the LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee 
(ROC), which includes regulators from around the world, was established 
to oversee the GLEIS on an interim basis. With the establishment of the 
full Global LEI Foundation in 2014, the ROC continues to review and 
develop broad policy standards for LEIs. The OCC, the Board, and the 
FDIC are all members of the ROC.
    The LEI system is designed to facilitate several financial 
stability objectives, including the provision of higher quality and 
more accurate financial data. In the United States, the Financial 
Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) has recommended that regulators and 
market participants continue to work together to improve the quality 
and comprehensiveness of financial data both nationally and globally. 
In this regard, the FSOC also has recommended that its member agencies 
promote the use of the LEI in reporting requirements and rulemakings, 
where appropriate.\2\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Effective beginning October 31, 2014, the Board started requiring 
holding companies to provide their LEI on the cover pages of the FR Y-
6, FR Y-7, and FR Y-10 reports \3\ only if a holding company already 
has an LEI. Thus, if a reporting holding company does not have an LEI, 
it is not required to obtain one for purposes of these Board reports. 
Additionally, effective for December 2015, the Board expanded the 
collection of the LEI to all holding company subsidiary banking and 
nonbanking legal entities reportable on certain schedules of the FR Y-
10 and in one section of the FR Y-6 and FR Y-7 if an LEI has already 
been issued for the reportable entity.\4\ With respect to the FFIEC 
102, the agencies are proposing to have reporting institutions provide 
their LEI on the cover page of each report beginning December 31, 2016, 
only if an institution already has an LEI. As with the Board reports, 
an institution that does not have an LEI would not be required to 
obtain one for purposes of reporting it on the FFIEC 102.

2. Changes to the Board's Respondent Panel

    On December 14, 2012, the Board invited comment on a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (proposed Regulation YY) \5\ that would have 
required a Foreign Banking Organization (FBO) with $50 billion in

[[Page 43607]]

non-branch assets to establish a U.S. IHC, imposed enhanced prudential 
standards on the U.S. IHC, and required the U.S. IHC to submit any 
reporting forms in the same manner and to the same extent as a bank 
holding company. On February 18, 2014, the Board adopted a final rule 
implementing enhanced prudential standards for FBOs (Regulation YY),\6\ 
with certain revisions in response to comments. The Board indicated in 
the preamble to Regulation YY that it would address the reporting 
requirements for U.S. IHCs at a later date. Accordingly, based on the 
background provided above, the agencies propose to add U.S. IHCs that 
are subject to the market risk capital rule to the FFIEC 102 panel of 
Board respondents.\7\ For such U.S. IHCs, the agencies are proposing to 
implement these changes beginning with the December 31, 2016, report 
date.

rule based on the same criteria used for other banking 
organizations. See 12 CFR 217.201(b)(1); 12 CFR 252.153(e)(2).
