Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request, 47801-47802 [2016-17358]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 141 / Friday, July 22, 2016 / Notices requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR part 63, subpart A), as well as for the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 63 subparts AA and BB. This includes submitting initial notifications, performance tests and periodic reports and results, and maintaining records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with the standards. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Phosphoric acid manufacturing and phosphate fertilizer production facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subparts AA and BB). Estimated number of respondents: 13 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly, semiannually and annually. Total estimated burden: 2,200 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $413,000 (per year), which includes $186,000 in either annualized capital/startup or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated cost, burden, number of responses, and capital and O&M costs as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The change in burden for the new and existing facilities is due primarily to a program change in the regulation requiring: (1) Mercury testing and total fluoride (TF) testing of phosphate rock calciners; and (2) TF testing of oxidation reactors. The Residual Risk and Technology Review (RTR) associated with this program change estimated 12 phosphoric acid units and 11 phosphate fertilizer units (a total of 23 process units) located at 13 facilities.

Agency form number: FR H–(b)11. OMB control number: 7100–0334. Frequency: Quarterly. Respondents: Savings and Loan Holding Companies. Estimated number of respondents: 15. Estimated Average Hours per Response: 2 hours. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 120 hours. General Description of Report: The FR H–(b)11 collects information on filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), reports provided by the nationally recognized statistical rating organizations and securities analysts, supplemental information for select questions from the Quarterly Savings and Loan Holding Company Report (FR 2320; OMB No. 7100–0345), financial statements, and other materially important events and exhibits. Respondents are (1) grandfathered unitary SLHCs whose assets are primarily commercial and whose thrifts make up less than 5 percent of its consolidated assets and (2) SLHCs whose assets are primarily insurance-related and do not otherwise submit financial reports with the SEC pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Federal Reserve uses the FR H–(b)11 data to analyze the overall financial condition of SLHCs to ensure safe and sound operations. Legal Authorization and Confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that the FR H– (b)11 is authorized by Section 10 of the Home Owners’ Loan Act, which requires SLHCs to file ‘‘such reports as may be required by the Board’’ and provides that such reports ‘‘shall contain such information concerning the operations of such SLHC and its subsidiaries as the Board may require’’ (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)(A)). The obligation to respond to the FR H–(b)11 is mandatory. The FR H–(b)11 covers 6 different items. Item 1 consists of SEC filings made by the SLHC that are not publicly traded companies and item 2 consists of reports provided by nationally recognized statistical rating organizations and securities analysts on any company in the SLHC’s consolidated organization. The Board’s Legal Division has determined that neither of these items should raise any issue of confidentiality. Item 3 consists of supplemental information for any questions on the FR 2320 to which the SLHC answered ‘‘yes.’’ The Board’s Legal Division has determined that supplemental information in response to a ‘‘yes’’ VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:19 Jul 21, 2016 Jkt 238001 answer for the FR 2320’s questions 24, 25, and 26 may be protected from disclosure under exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which covers ‘‘trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained from a person [that is] privileged or confidential’’ (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4)). These questions concern any new or changed pledges of capital stock of any subsidiary savings association that secures short-term or long-term debt or other borrowings of the SLHC; changes to any class of securities of the SLHC or any of its subsidiaries that would negatively impact investors; and any default of the SLHC or any of its subsidiaries during the quarter. Disclosure of this type of information is likely to cause substantial competitive harm to the SLHC providing the information and thus this information may be protected from disclosure under FOIA exemption 4 (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4)). With regard to the supplemental information for other FR 2320 questions that would be provided in item 3 of the FR H–(b)11, as well as item 4 (Other Materially Important Events), item 5 (Financial Statements) and item 6 (Exhibits—essentially copies not previously filed of its charter or bylaws), the respondent may request confidential treatment of such information under one or more of the exemptions in the FOIA. The most likely case for confidential treatment will be exemption 4 (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4)). However, all such requests for confidential treatment would need to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and in response to a specific request for disclosure. Proposed Revisions: The Federal Reserve proposes to eliminate the requirement that a publicly-traded SLHC submit a copy of its filings with the SEC.

    Proposal to approve under OMB delegated authority the extension for 
three years, with revision, of the following report:

[[Page 47802]]

    Report title: Savings Association Holding Company Report.
    Agency form number: FR H-(b)11.
    OMB control number: 7100-0334.
    Frequency: Quarterly.
    Respondents: Savings and Loan Holding Companies.
    Estimated number of respondents: 15.
    Estimated Average Hours per Response: 2 hours.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 120 hours.
    General Description of Report: The FR H-(b)11 collects information 
on filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), reports 
provided by the nationally recognized statistical rating organizations 
and securities analysts, supplemental information for select questions 
from the Quarterly Savings and Loan Holding Company Report (FR 2320; 
OMB No. 7100-0345), financial statements, and other materially 
important events and exhibits. Respondents are (1) grandfathered 
unitary SLHCs whose assets are primarily commercial and whose thrifts 
make up less than 5 percent of its consolidated assets and (2) SLHCs 
whose assets are primarily insurance-related and do not otherwise 
submit financial reports with the SEC pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) 
of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Federal Reserve uses the FR 
H-(b)11 data to analyze the overall financial condition of SLHCs to 
ensure safe and sound operations.
    Legal Authorization and Confidentiality: The Board's Legal Division 
has determined that the FR H-(b)11 is authorized by Section 10 of the 
Home Owners' Loan Act, which requires SLHCs to file ``such reports as 
may be required by the Board'' and provides that such reports ``shall 
contain such information concerning the operations of such SLHC and its 
subsidiaries as the Board may require'' (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)(2)(A)).
    The obligation to respond to the FR H-(b)11 is mandatory. The FR H-
(b)11 covers 6 different items. Item 1 consists of SEC filings made by 
the SLHC that are not publicly traded companies and item 2 consists of 
reports provided by nationally recognized statistical rating 
organizations and securities analysts on any company in the SLHC's 
consolidated organization. The Board's Legal Division has determined 
that neither of these items should raise any issue of confidentiality.
    Item 3 consists of supplemental information for any questions on 
the FR 2320 to which the SLHC answered ``yes.'' The Board's Legal 
Division has determined that supplemental information in response to a 
``yes'' answer for the FR 2320's questions 24, 25, and 26 may be 
protected from disclosure under exemption 4 of the Freedom of 
Information Act (FOIA), which covers ``trade secrets and commercial or 
financial information obtained from a person [that is] privileged or 
confidential'' (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4)). These questions concern any new or 
changed pledges of capital stock of any subsidiary savings association 
that secures short-term or long-term debt or other borrowings of the 
SLHC; changes to any class of securities of the SLHC or any of its 
subsidiaries that would negatively impact investors; and any default of 
the SLHC or any of its subsidiaries during the quarter. Disclosure of 
this type of information is likely to cause substantial competitive 
harm to the SLHC providing the information and thus this information 
may be protected from disclosure under FOIA exemption 4 (5 U.S.C. 
522(b)(4)).
    With regard to the supplemental information for other FR 2320 
questions that would be provided in item 3 of the FR H-(b)11, as well 
as item 4 (Other Materially Important Events), item 5 (Financial 
Statements) and item 6 (Exhibits--essentially copies not previously 
filed of its charter or bylaws), the respondent may request 
confidential treatment of such information under one or more of the 
exemptions in the FOIA. The most likely case for confidential treatment 
will be exemption 4 (5 U.S.C. 522(b)(4)). However, all such requests 
for confidential treatment would need to be reviewed on a case-by-case 
basis and in response to a specific request for disclosure.
    Proposed Revisions: The Federal Reserve proposes to eliminate the 
requirement that a publicly-traded SLHC submit a copy of its filings 
with the SEC.

    Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, July 14, 2016.
