Currently, EAD information pertaining to CVAs that is reported in FFIEC 101 Schedule B remains confidential, even after an institution completes its parallel run period. The agencies have determined that the EAD information reported in column D of items 31.a and 31.b on FFIEC 101 Schedule B is already captured in column D of item 10 (OTC derivatives—no cross-product netting— EAD adjustment method) on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. Continuing to collect the same EAD information in both places is not only redundant, but also may be misinterpreted by the users of FFIEC 101 data as additional default risk held by the reporting entity. For these reasons, the agencies propose removing column D for items 31.a and 31.b on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. The agencies would continue to collect the amount of risk-weighted assets for CVAs in column G of items 31.a and 31.b on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Public comment is requested on all aspects of this joint notice.
