Download as PDF nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 105 / Friday, June 2, 2017 / Notices subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act. RSTAC currently consists of 19 members. Of this number, 15 members are appointed by the Chairman of the Board, and the remaining four members are comprised of the Secretary of Transportation and the Members of the Board, who serve as ex officio, nonvoting members.1 Of the 15 members, nine members are voting members and are appointed from senior executive officers of organizations engaged in the railroad and rail shipping industries. At least four of the voting members must be representatives of small shippers as determined by the Chairman, and at least four of the voting members must be representatives of Class II or III railroads. The remaining six members to be appointed—three representing Class I railroads and three representing large shipper organizations—serve in a nonvoting, advisory capacity, but are entitled to participate in RSTAC deliberations. RSTAC is required by statute to meet at least semi-annually. In recent years, RSTAC has met four times a year. Meetings are generally held at the Board’s headquarters in Washington, DC, although some are held in other locations. RSTAC members receive no compensation for their services and are required to provide for the expenses incidental to their service, including travel expenses, as the Board cannot provide for these expenses. RSTAC may solicit and use private funding for its activities, again subject to certain restrictions in ICCTA. RSTAC members currently have elected to submit annual dues to pay for RSTAC expenses. RSTAC members must be citizens of the United States and represent as broadly as practicable the various segments of the railroad and rail shipper industries. They may not be full-time employees of the United States. According to revised guidance issued by the Office of Management and Budget, it is permissible for federally registered lobbyists to serve on advisory committees, such as RSTAC, as long as they do so in a representative capacity, rather than an individual capacity. See Revised Guidance on Appointment of Lobbyists to Fed. Advisory Comms., Bds., & Commn’s., 79 FR 47482 (Aug. 13, 2014). Members of RSTAC are appointed to serve in a representative capacity. 1 The Surface Transportation Board Reauthorization Act of 2015, Pub. L. 114–110 (2015), increased the number of Board Members from three to five. Once additional Board Members are appointed, they will also serve as RSTAC ex officio, nonvoting members. VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:31 Jun 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 RSTAC members are appointed for three-year terms. A member may serve after the expiration of his or her term until a successor has been appointed. No member will be eligible to serve in excess of two consecutive terms. Due to the expiration of an RSTAC member’s term, a vacancy exists for an at-large (public interest) representative. Upon appointment by the Chairman, the new representative will serve for three years and may be eligible to serve a second three-year term following the end of his or her first term. Suggestions for candidates to fill this vacancy should be submitted in letter form, identify the name of the candidate, provide a summary of why the candidate is qualified to serve on RSTAC, and contain a representation that the candidate is willing to serve as a member of RSTAC effective immediately upon appointment. RSTAC candidate suggestions should be filed with the Board by June 29, 2017. Members selected to serve on RSTAC are chosen at the discretion of the Board’s Chairman. Please note that submissions will be available to the public at the Board’s offices and posted on the Board’s Web site under Docket No. EP 526 (Sub-No. 9). Authority: 49 U.S.C. 1325. Decided: May 30, 2017. By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings. Kenyatta Clay, Clearance Clerk.

General Description of Reports Each advanced approaches banking organization is required to file quarterly regulatory capital data on the FFIEC 101. The FFIEC 101 information collection is mandatory for advanced approaches banking organizations: 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. 1817 (insured state nonmember commercial and savings banks), 12 U.S.C. 1464 (savings associations), and 12 U.S.C. 1844(c), 3106, and 3108 (intermediate holding companies). The agencies use these data to assess and monitor the levels and components of each reporting entity’s capital requirements and the adequacy of the E:\FR\FM\02JNN1.SGM 02JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 105 / Friday, June 2, 2017 / Notices nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with NOTICES entity’s capital under the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework; to evaluate the impact of the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework on individual reporting entities and on an industry-wide basis and its competitive implications; and to supplement on-site examination processes. The reporting schedules also assist advanced approaches banking organizations in understanding expectations relating to the system development necessary for implementation and validation of the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework. Submitted data that are released publicly will also provide other interested parties with information about advanced approaches banking organizations’ regulatory capital. Current Actions On March 1, 2017, the agencies requested comment on proposed revisions to the FFIEC 101 reporting requirements.1 The proposed revisions would remove EAD information related to CVAs that already is captured in a separate item on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. Specifically, the agencies proposed to remove column D (EAD) for items 31.a, ‘‘Credit valuation adjustments—simple approach,’’ and 31.b, ‘‘Credit valuation adjustments—advanced approach.’’ These line items were added to the FFIEC 101 report in March of 2014, and were intended to provide data pertaining to the CVA requirements under the agencies’ regulatory capital rules 2 for over-the-counter (OTC) derivative activities. The agencies subsequently 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 proposed 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. The comment period for this proposal expired on May 1, 2017. The agencies did not receive any comments on the 1 82 FR 12274 (March 1, 2017). national banks and federal savings associations, 12 CFR part 3 (OCC); for state member banks and holding companies, 12 CFR part 217 (Board); and for state nonmember banks and state savings associations, 12 CFR part 324 (FDIC). 2 For VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:31 Jun 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 proposal and are now submitting requests to OMB for review and approval of the extension, with revision, of the FFIEC 101. While the agencies originally proposed making the changes effective as of the June 30, 2017, report date, due to the time required for the PRA revision process, the agencies have revised the proposal. As revised, the reporting changes would instead take effect as of the September 30, 2017, report date. However, as the two items being removed are not made public or otherwise shared outside the agencies, reporting entities may elect to adopt the changes immediately by ceasing to report column D of items 31.a and 31.b on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. Request for Comment Public comment is requested on all aspects of this joint notice. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collections of information that are the subject of this notice are necessary for the proper performance of the agencies’ functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agencies’ estimates of the burden of the information collections as they are proposed to be revised, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) Ways to minimize the burden of information collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.

    On March 1, 2017, the agencies, under the auspices of the Federal 
Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), requested public

Reporting for Institutions Subject to the Advanced Capital Adequacy 
Framework (FFIEC 101). The FFIEC 101 is completed only by banking 
organizations subject to the advanced approaches risk-based capital 
rule. Generally, this rule applies to banking organizations with $250 
billion or more in total consolidated assets or $10 billion or more in 
on-balance sheet foreign exposures (advanced approaches banking 
organizations).
    The agencies proposed to remove two credit valuation adjustment 
(CVA) items from the exposure at default (EAD) column on FFIEC 101 
Schedule B, Summary Risk-Weighted Asset Information for Banks Approved 
to Use Advanced Internal Ratings-Based and Advanced Measurement 
Approaches for Regulatory Capital Purposes (items 31.a and 31.b, column 
D).

General Description of Reports

    Each advanced approaches banking organization is required to file 
quarterly regulatory capital data on the FFIEC 101. The FFIEC 101 
information collection is mandatory for advanced approaches banking 
organizations: 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. 1817 (insured 
state nonmember commercial and savings banks), 12 U.S.C. 1464 (savings 
associations), and 12 U.S.C. 1844(c), 3106, and 3108 (intermediate 
holding companies).
    The agencies use these data to assess and monitor the levels and 
components of each reporting entity's capital requirements and the 
adequacy of the

[[Page 25657]]

entity's capital under the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework; to 
evaluate the impact of the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework on 
individual reporting entities and on an industry-wide basis and its 
competitive implications; and to supplement on-site examination 
processes. The reporting schedules also assist advanced approaches 
banking organizations in understanding expectations relating to the 
system development necessary for implementation and validation of the 
Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework. Submitted data that are released 
publicly will also provide other interested parties with information 
about advanced approaches banking organizations' regulatory capital.

Current Actions

    On March 1, 2017, the agencies requested comment on proposed 
revisions to the FFIEC 101 reporting requirements.\1\ The proposed 
revisions would remove EAD information related to CVAs that already is 
captured in a separate item on FFIEC 101 Schedule B. Specifically, the 
agencies proposed to remove column D (EAD) for items 31.a, ``Credit 
valuation adjustments--simple approach,'' and 31.b, ``Credit valuation 
adjustments--advanced approach.'' These line items were added to the 
FFIEC 101 report in March of 2014, and were intended to provide data 
pertaining to the CVA requirements under the agencies' regulatory 
capital rules \2\ for over-the-counter (OTC) derivative activities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 82 FR 12274 (March 1, 2017).
    \2\ For national banks and federal savings associations, 12 CFR 
part 3 (OCC); for state member banks and holding companies, 12 CFR 
part 217 (Board); and for state nonmember banks and state savings 
associations, 12 CFR part 324 (FDIC).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The agencies subsequently 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 proposed 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.
    The comment period for this proposal expired on May 1, 2017. The 
agencies did not receive any comments on the proposal and are now 
submitting requests to OMB for review and approval of the extension, 
with revision, of the FFIEC 101. While the agencies originally proposed 
making the changes effective as of the June 30, 2017, report date, due 
to the time required for the PRA revision process, the agencies have 
revised the proposal. As revised, the reporting changes would instead 
take effect as of the September 30, 2017, report date. However, as the 
two items being removed are not made public or otherwise shared outside 
the agencies, reporting entities may elect to adopt the changes 
immediately by ceasing to report column D of items 31.a and 31.b on 
FFIEC 101 Schedule B.
