However, 150 Small Banks are voluntarily collecting and reporting data, and the number of respndents has been adjusted to reflect this. General Description of Collection: The Community Reinvestment Act regulation requires the FDIC to assess the record of banks and thrifts in helping meet the credit needs of their entire communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, consistent with safe and sound operations; and to take this record into account in evaluating applications for mergers, branches, and certain other corporate activities. There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. The overall increase in burden hours is a result of an increase in the number of Small Banks electing to voluntarily respond in certain categories. The increase is also, in small part, due to an adjustment in the agency’s estimate of the time required to submit strategic plan applications from 275 hours per respondent to 400 hours per respondent.

Accordingly, the number of respondents facing implementation burden has been reduced from 990 to 1 as a placeholder for any institution that elects to start sharing consumer information with its affiliates in the future. 2 The number of respondents facing ongoing burden remains unchanged at 990. 3 The FDIC estimates that 944 out of the 990 banks impacted by this information collection are community banks having an average of 12,098 consumers and the remaining 46 are non-community (larger) banks having an average of 124,745 consumers. The FDIC estimates that 5% of the 17,158,782 estimated consumers at these 990 institutions (857,939 consumers) elect to Opt-Out of affiliate marketing information sharing. * Minutes. General Description of Collection: Section 214 of the FACT Act requires financial institutions that wish to share information about consumers with their affiliates, to inform such consumers that they have the opportunity to opt out of such marketing solicitations. The disclosure notices and consumer responses thereto comprise the elements of this collection of information. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:18 May 16, 2017 Jkt 241001 There is no change in the method or substance of this information collection. There has been a net increase in the estimated total annual burden primarily because of an upward adjustment in the agency’s estimate of the number of consumers at FDIC-supervised institutions that elect to opt-out of affiliate marketing information sharing. The increase in burden due to the adjustment in the estimated number of PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 consumers affected was offset by the fact that banks have completed the implementation phase of the information collection; the estimated ongoing time per response for affected institutions decreasing from 18 hours at implementation to 2 hours ongoing. 3.

Recordkeeping ........................................................................ Disclosure ................................................................................ ........................ ........................ ................................................ 1,514 General Description of Collection: This information collection implements section 742(c)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Act (7 U.S.C. 2(c)(2)(E) and FDIC regulations governing retail foreign exchange transactions as set forth at 12 CFR part 349, subpart B. The regulation allows banking organizations under FDIC supervision to engage in off-exchange transactions in foreign currency with retail customers provided they comply with various reporting, recordkeeping and third-party disclosure requirements specified in the rule. If an institution elects to conduct such transactions, compliance with the information collection is mandatory. Reporting Requirements—Part 349, subpart B requires that, prior to initiating a retail foreign exchange business; a banking institution must provide the FDIC with a notice certifying that the institution has written policies and procedures, and risk measurement and management systems and controls in place to ensure that retail foreign exchange transactions are conducted in a safe and sound manner. The institution must also provide information about it intends to manage customer due diligence, new product approvals and haircuts applied to noncash margin. Recordkeeping Requirements—Part 349 subpart B requires that institutions engaging in retail foreign exchange transactions keep full, complete and systematic records of account, financial ledger, transaction, memorandum orders and post execution allocations of bunched orders. In addition, institutions are required to maintain records regarding their ratio of profitable accounts, possible violations of law, records of noncash margin and monthly statements and confirmations issued. Disclosure Requirements—The regulation requires that, before opening an account that will engage in retail foreign exchange transactions, a banking institution must obtain from each retail foreign exchange customer an acknowledgement of receipt and understanding of a written disclosure VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:18 May 16, 2017 Jkt 241001 specified in the rule and of disclosures about the banking institution’s fees and other charges and of its profitable accounts ratio. The institution must also provide monthly statements to each retail foreign exchange customer and must send confirmation statements following every transaction. The customer dispute resolution provisions of the regulation require certain endorsements, acknowledgements and signature language as well as the timely provision of a list of persons qualified to handle a customer’s request for arbitration. There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. At present no FDIC-supervised institution is engaging in activities that would make them subject to the information collection requirements. FDIC originally estimated that 3 institutions would be impacted by the rule. The agency is reducing the estimated number of respondents to one (1) as a placeholder in case an institution elects to engage in covered activities in the future. There has been no change in the frequency of response or in the estimated number of hours required to respond. Because of the reduction in the estimated number of respondents from three (3) to one (1), the estimated annual burden has decreased. Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collections, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collections of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments will become a matter of public record. PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated at Washington, DC, this 12th day of May 2017. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Ralph E.

* The number of Large Banks reporting decreased from 253 to 243. However, 150 Small Banks are voluntarily
  collecting and reporting data, and the number of respndents has been adjusted to reflect this.

    General Description of Collection: The Community Reinvestment Act 
regulation requires the FDIC to assess the record of banks and thrifts 
in helping meet the credit needs of their entire communities, including 
low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, consistent with safe and sound 
operations; and to take this record into account in evaluating 
applications for mergers, branches, and certain other corporate 
activities.
    There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. 
The overall increase in burden hours is a result of an increase in the 
number of Small Banks electing to voluntarily respond in certain 
categories. The increase is also, in small part, due to an adjustment 
in the agency's estimate of the time required to submit strategic plan 
applications from 275 hours per respondent to 400 hours per respondent.

\1\ All respondents have now gone through implementation of their programs. Accordingly, the number of
  respondents facing implementation burden has been reduced from 990 to 1 as a placeholder for any institution
  that elects to start sharing consumer information with its affiliates in the future.
\2\ The number of respondents facing ongoing burden remains unchanged at 990.
\3\ The FDIC estimates that 944 out of the 990 banks impacted by this information collection are community banks
  having an average of 12,098 consumers and the remaining 46 are non-community (larger) banks having an average
  of 124,745 consumers. The FDIC estimates that 5% of the 17,158,782 estimated consumers at these 990
  institutions (857,939 consumers) elect to Opt-Out of affiliate marketing information sharing.
* Minutes.

    General Description of Collection: Section 214 of the FACT Act 
requires financial institutions that wish to share information about 
consumers with their affiliates, to inform such consumers that they 
have the opportunity to opt out of such marketing solicitations. The 
disclosure notices and consumer responses thereto comprise the elements 
of this collection of information.
    There is no change in the method or substance of this information 
collection. There has been a net increase in the estimated total annual 
burden primarily because of an upward adjustment in the agency's 
estimate of the number of consumers at FDIC-supervised institutions 
that elect to opt-out of affiliate marketing information sharing. The 
increase in burden due to the adjustment in the estimated number of 
consumers affected was offset by the fact that banks have completed the 
implementation phase of the information collection; the estimated 
ongoing time per response for affected institutions decreasing from 18 
hours at implementation to 2 hours ongoing.

    General Description of Collection: This information collection 
implements section 742(c)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Act (7 U.S.C. 2(c)(2)(E) 
and FDIC regulations governing retail foreign exchange transactions as 
set forth at 12 CFR part 349, subpart B. The regulation allows banking 
organizations under FDIC supervision to engage in off-exchange 
transactions in foreign currency with retail customers provided they 
comply with various reporting, recordkeeping and third-party disclosure 
requirements specified in the rule. If an institution elects to conduct 
such transactions, compliance with the information collection is 
mandatory.
    Reporting Requirements--Part 349, subpart B requires that, prior to 
initiating a retail foreign exchange business; a banking institution 
must provide the FDIC with a notice certifying that the institution has 
written policies and procedures, and risk measurement and management 
systems and controls in place to ensure that retail foreign exchange 
transactions are conducted in a safe and sound manner. The institution 
must also provide information about it intends to manage customer due 
diligence, new product approvals and haircuts applied to noncash 
margin.
    Recordkeeping Requirements--Part 349 subpart B requires that 
institutions engaging in retail foreign exchange transactions keep 
full, complete and systematic records of account, financial ledger, 
transaction, memorandum orders and post execution allocations of 
bunched orders. In addition, institutions are required to maintain 
records regarding their ratio of profitable accounts, possible 
violations of law, records of noncash margin and monthly statements and 
confirmations issued.
    Disclosure Requirements--The regulation requires that, before 
opening an account that will engage in retail foreign exchange 
transactions, a banking institution must obtain from each retail 
foreign exchange customer an acknowledgement of receipt and 
understanding of a written disclosure specified in the rule and of 
disclosures about the banking institution's fees and other charges and 
of its profitable accounts ratio. The institution must also provide 
monthly statements to each retail foreign exchange customer and must 
send confirmation statements following every transaction. The customer 
dispute resolution provisions of the regulation require certain 
endorsements, acknowledgements and signature language as well as the 
timely provision of a list of persons qualified to handle a customer's 
request for arbitration.
    There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. At 
present no FDIC-supervised institution is engaging in activities that 
would make them subject to the information collection requirements. 
FDIC originally estimated that 3 institutions would be impacted by the 
rule. The agency is reducing the estimated number of respondents to one 
(1) as a placeholder in case an institution elects to engage in covered 
activities in the future. There has been no change in the frequency of 
response or in the estimated number of hours required to respond. 
Because of the reduction in the estimated number of respondents from 
three (3) to one (1), the estimated annual burden has decreased.

Request for Comment

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collections of information 
are necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, 
including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collections, 
including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) 
ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collections of 
information on respondents, including through the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All 
comments will become a matter of public record.
