Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 239 / Tuesday, December 13, 2016 / Notices compliance with those requirements will be one element of a broader qualitative and quantitative assessment of capital adequacy.11 Noncomplex SLHCs under $1 billion will be assigned an abbreviated version of the RFI rating system consistent with the Board’s practice for BHCs outlined in SR 13–21.12 An offsite review of the SLHC will be conducted upon receipt of the lead depository institution’s report of examination. The supervisory cycle will be determined by the examination frequency of the lead depository institution and the SLHC will be assigned only a risk management rating and a composite rating. Finally, elements of the RFI rating system that are codified in the Board’s Bank Holding Company Supervision Manual 13 and a policy letter issued by the staff of the Board’s Division of Banking Supervision and Regulation will be revised if the proposal to fully apply the RFI system to certain SLHCs is finalized.14 Assessment of Capital Adequacy for SLHCs That Receive Indicative Ratings For SLHCs that would continue to receive an indicative rating under the RFI rating system, the Board proposes that examiners, in the evaluation of capital adequacy of an SLHC, consider the risks inherent in the SLHC’s activities and the ability of capital to absorb unanticipated losses, provide a base for growth, and support the level and composition of the parent company and subsidiaries’ debt. pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES Supervisory Guidance for SLHCs With Less Than $10 Billion in Assets In 2013, Board staff published several supervisory letters extending the use of the RFI rating system for and assignment of indicative ratings to SLHCs and extending the scope and frequency requirements for supervised holding companies with total 11 See Sections 4060 and 4061 of the Bank Holding Company Supervision Manual; Supervision and Regulation Letter 15–19 (December 18, 2015), available at https:// www.federalreserve.gov/bankinforeg/srletters/ sr1519.htm; Supervision and Regulation Letter 15– 6 (April 6, 2015), available at https:// www.federalreserve.gov/bankinforeg/srletters/ sr1506.htm; Supervision and Regulation Letter 09– 04 (February 24, 2009, revised December 21, 2015), available at http://www.federalreserve.gov/ boarddocs/srletters/2009/sr0904.htm. 12 Supervision and Regulation Letter 13–21 (December 17, 2013), available at https:// www.federalreserve.gov/bankinforeg/srletters/ sr1321.htm. 13 Available at http://www.federalreserve.gov/ boarddocs/supmanual/supervision_bhc.htm. 14 See Supervision and Regulation Letter 04–18 (December 6, 2014), available at http:// www.federalreserve.gov/boarddocs/srletters/2004/ sr0418.htm. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:08 Dec 12, 2016 Jkt 241001 consolidated assets of $10 billion or less to SLHCs. Until such time as the Board adopts a final rule on the application of the RFI rating system to SLHCs, SLHCs may refer to these letters for staff-level guidance on the use of indicative ratings. The Board invites comment on all aspects of this proposal. III. Regulatory Analysis Paperwork Reduction Act There is no collection of information required by this proposal that would be subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Regulatory Flexibility Analysis The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) requires an agency to publish an initial regulatory flexibility analysis with a proposed rule or certify that the proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Based on its analysis, and for the reasons stated below, the rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Nevertheless, the Board is publishing an initial regulatory flexibility analysis and requests public comment on all aspects of its analysis. The Board will, if necessary, conduct a final regulatory flexibility analysis after considering the comments received during the public comment period. 1. Statement of the need for, and objectives of, the proposed rule. The proposed rule would apply the same supervisory rating system to SLHCs as currently applies to bank holding companies. The RFI rating system is an effective approach to communicating supervisory expectations to SLHCs. This proposal furthers the Board’s goal of ensuring that holding companies that control depository institutions are subject to consistent standards and supervisory programs. 2. Small entities affected by the proposed rule. Under regulations issued by the Small Business Administration, a small entity includes an SLHC with total assets of $550 million or less. As of October 31, 2016, there were approximately 157 small SLHCs. The proposed rule will not have a significant economic impact on the entities that it affects because the proposal does not impose any recordkeeping, reporting, or compliance requirements. The Board invites comment on the effect of the proposed rule on small entities. 3. Recordkeeping, reporting, and compliance requirements. The proposed rule would not impose any recordkeeping, reporting, or compliance requirements. PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 89943 4. Other Federal rules. The Board has not identified any likely duplication, overlap and/or potential conflict between the proposed rule and any Federal rule. 5. Significant alternatives to the proposed revisions. The Board believes that this proposal will not have a significant economic impact on small banking organizations supervised by the Board and therefore believes that there are no significant alternatives to this proposal that would reduce the economic impact on small banking organizations supervised by the Board. The Board solicits comment on any significant alternatives that would reduce the regulatory burden associated on small entities with this proposed rule. Solicitation of Comments on Use of Plain Language Section 722 of the Gramm-LeachBliley Act requires the Board to use plain language in all proposed and final rules published after January 1, 2000. The Board invites comment on how to make this proposed rule easier to understand. For example: • Has the Board organized the material to suit your needs? If not, how could the proposal be more clearly stated? • Are the requirements in the proposal clearly stated? If not, how could the proposal be more clearly stated? • Does the proposal contain technical language or jargon that is not clear? If so, what language requires clarification? • Would a different format (grouping and order of sections, use of headings, paragraphing) make the proposal easier to understand? If so, what changes would make the proposal easier to understand? • Would more, but shorter, sections be better? If so, which sections should be changed? • What else could the Board do to make the proposal easier to understand? By order of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, December 8, 2016.
