Lastly, Cooper Tire receives some registration cards through Computerized Information and Management Services, Inc. (‘‘CIMS’’), a third-party vendor that collects and provides tire registration cards to a number of manufacturers, including Cooper Tire. CIMS has been made aware of the plant code error. CIMS has informed Cooper Tire that they will provide all registration cards to Cooper Tire that have a Cooper Tire plant code listed. c) In the event Cooper Tire has to conduct a safety related recall in connection with the 484 subject tires, Cooper Tire will include TINs UT Yl FXJ 1017 to 1117 and UP Yl FXJ 1017 to 1117 in its recall universe, so that there will be no issues with regard to identifying the recall population. Should Cooper Tire receive any affected tires in its service facilities for adjustments, the service technician will record the proper TIN number to accurately record the data. d) Cooper Tire has taken steps over the last year to add additional checks in its processes to prevent TIN errors. One of those checks includes implementing software that only allows for the plant to choose the plant code from a drop down menu that includes only its specific plant code. In this instance, however, the molds were transferred from one Cooper Tire facility (Findlay) to another (Texarkana). The Texarkana employee responsible for preparing the mold for use in the Texarkana facility only modified the mold on one side and the error went undetected. The mold containing the error was in production from March 6th through March 15th and when the error was detected on March 30th, the plug error was corrected in the mold to prevent future issues. Responsible Cooper Tire personnel will receive additional training on these processes. Cooper concluded by expressing the belief that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, and that its petition to be exempted from providing notification of the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118, and a remedy for the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120, should be granted. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, any VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:31 Jun 02, 2017 Jkt 241001 decision on this petition only applies to the subject tires that Cooper no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, any decision on this petition does not relieve equipment distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant tires under their control after Cooper notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), federal agencies must obtain approval from OMB for each collection of information that they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) to include agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of title 44 requires federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed renewal of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the OCC is publishing notice of the renewal of the collection of information set forth in this document. Title: Community Reinvestment Act Regulations. OMB Control No.: 1557–0160. Description: The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) requires the federal banking agencies 1 (Agencies) to assess the record of regulated financial institutions (institutions) in helping to meet the credit needs of their entire communities, including low- and 1 OCC, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

The CRA further requires the Agencies to take this record into account in evaluating applications for mergers, branches, and certain other corporate activities.2 The CRA statute requires the Agencies to issue regulations to carry out its purposes.3 Each agency must provide written CRA performance evaluations (CRA PE) of the institutions they supervise. The CRA PEs are disclosed to the public. The public portion of each written CRA PE must present the agency’s conclusions with respect to the CRA performance standards identified in its regulations; including the facts and data supporting those conclusions; and contain the institution’s CRA rating and the basis for that rating. The reporting, recordkeeping, and disclosure requirements in the CRA regulations are necessary, as they provide the Agencies with the information they need to examine, assess, and assign ratings reflecting institutions’ CRA performance and to prepare the public section of the CRA PE. The OCC’s CRA regulation, 12 CFR 25, applies to national banks, including federal branches, as those are defined in 12 CFR 28, with federally insured deposits, except as provided in 12 CFR 25.11, (collectively, banks). Similarly, the OCC’s CRA regulation, 12 CFR 195, applies to savings associations, except as provided in 12 CFR 195.11.

Twelve CFR 25.42(c)(1) and 195.42(c)(1) provide that all banks and savings associations may collect and maintain in machine readable form certain data for consumer loans originated or purchased by a bank or savings association for consideration under the lending test. Under 12 CFR 25.42(c)(2) and 195.42(c)(2), all banks and saving associations may include other information concerning their lending performance, including additional loan distribution data. Twelve CFR 25.42(d) and 195.42(d) provide that banks and savings associations that elect to have the OCC consider loans by an affiliate, for purposes of the lending or community development test or an approved strategic plan, shall collect, maintain, and report the data that the bank or savings association would have collected, maintained, and reported pursuant to 12 CFR 25.42(a)–(c) or 195.42(a)–(c), respectively, had the loans been originated or purchased by the bank or savings association. For home mortgage loans, the bank or savings association must also be prepared to identify the home mortgage loans reported under HMDA by the affiliate. Twelve 12 CFR 25.42(e) and 195.42(e) provide that banks and savings associations that elect to have the OCC consider community development loans by a consortium or a third party, for purposes of the lending or community development tests or an approved strategic plan, must report for those loans the data that the bank or savings association would have reported under 12 CFR 25.42(b)(2) or 195.42(b)(2), respectively, had the loans been originated or purchased by the bank or savings association.

The OCC is asking that OMB extend its approval of the following collection: Title: Capital Adequacy Standards. OMB Control No.: 1557–0318. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Section-by-Section-Analysis Twelve CFR part 3 sets forth the OCC’s minimum capital requirements and overall capital adequacy standards for national banks and federal savings associations (institutions). Section 3.3(c) allows for the recognition of netting across multiple types of transactions or agreements if an institution obtains a written legal opinion verifying the validity and enforceability of the agreement under certain circumstances and maintains sufficient written documentation of this legal review. Section 3.22(h)(2)(iii)(A) permits the use of a conservative estimate of the PO 00000 Frm 00159 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25913 amount of an institution’s investment in its own capital or the capital of unconsolidated financial institutions held through the index security with prior approval by the OCC. Section 3.35(b)(3)(i)(A) requires, for a cleared transaction with a qualified central counterparty (QCCP), that a client bank apply a risk weight of two percent, provided that the collateral posted by the bank to the QCCP is subject to certain arrangements and the client bank has conducted a sufficient legal review (and maintains sufficient written documentation of the legal review) to conclude with a wellfounded basis that the arrangements, in the event of a legal challenge, would be found to be legal, valid, binding, and enforceable under the law of the relevant jurisdictions. Section 3.37(c)(4)(i)(E), regarding collateralized transactions, requires that an institution have policies and procedures in place describing how it determines the period of significant financial stress used to calculate its own internal estimates for haircuts and be able to provide empirical support for the period used. Section 3.41(b), which sets forth operational requirements for securitization exposures, allows an institution to recognize for risk-based capital purposes, in the case of synthetic securitizations, a credit risk mitigant to hedge underlying exposures if certain conditions are met. Section 3.41(b)(3) includes a requirement that the institution obtain a well-reasoned opinion from legal counsel that confirms the enforceability of the credit risk mitigant in all relevant jurisdictions. Section 3.41(c)(2)(i) requires that an institution demonstrate its comprehensive understanding of a securitization exposure by conducting and documenting an analysis of the risk characteristics of each securitization exposure prior to its acquisition, taking into account a number of specified considerations. In the case where an institution provides non-contractual support to a securitization, § 3.42(e)(2) requires the institution to publicly disclose that it has provided implicit support to a securitization and the risk-based capital impact to the bank of providing such implicit support. Section 3.62 sets forth disclosure requirements related to the capital requirements of an institution. These requirements apply to an institution with total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more that is not a consolidated subsidiary of an entity that is itself subject to Basel III disclosures.

requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, 
keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 
3506(c)(2)(A) of title 44 requires federal agencies to provide a 60-day 
notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of 
information, including each proposed renewal of an existing collection 
of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. 
To comply with this requirement, the OCC is publishing notice of the 
renewal of the collection of information set forth in this document.
    Title: Community Reinvestment Act Regulations.
    OMB Control No.: 1557-0160.
    Description: The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) requires the 
federal banking agencies \1\ (Agencies) to assess the record of 
regulated financial institutions (institutions) in helping to meet the 
credit needs of their entire communities, including low- and

[[Page 25912]]

moderate-income neighborhoods, consistent with safe and sound 
operations. The CRA further requires the Agencies to take this record 
into account in evaluating applications for mergers, branches, and 
certain other corporate activities.\2\ The CRA statute requires the 
Agencies to issue regulations to carry out its purposes.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ OCC, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and 
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
    \2\ 12 U.S.C. 2903.
    \3\ 12 U.S.C. 2905.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Each agency must provide written CRA performance evaluations (CRA 
PE) of the institutions they supervise. The CRA PEs are disclosed to 
the public. The public portion of each written CRA PE must present the 
agency's conclusions with respect to the CRA performance standards 
identified in its regulations; including the facts and data supporting 
those conclusions; and contain the institution's CRA rating and the 
basis for that rating.
    The reporting, recordkeeping, and disclosure requirements in the 
CRA regulations are necessary, as they provide the Agencies with the 
information they need to examine, assess, and assign ratings reflecting 
institutions' CRA performance and to prepare the public section of the 
CRA PE.
    The OCC's CRA regulation, 12 CFR 25, applies to national banks, 
including federal branches, as those are defined in 12 CFR 28, with 
federally insured deposits, except as provided in 12 CFR 25.11, 
(collectively, banks). Similarly, the OCC's CRA regulation, 12 CFR 195, 
applies to savings associations, except as provided in 12 CFR 195.11.
    Twelve CFR 25.25(b) and 195.25(b) provide that requests for 
designation as a wholesale or limited purpose bank or savings 
association must be made in writing with the OCC at least three months 
prior to the proposed effective date of the designation.
    Twelve CFR 25.27 and 195.27 provide for optional submission of 
strategic plans to the OCC for approval. If the requirements of 12 CFR 
25.27(a) or 195.27(a), respectively, are met, institutions' records of 
helping to meet the credit needs of their assessment areas will be 
assessed under their approved strategic plans.
    Twelve CFR 25.42(a) and 195.42(a) require that large banks and 
savings associations \4\ shall collect and maintain certain small 
business/small farm loan data in a machine-readable form and report it 
annually pursuant to 12 CFR 25.42(b)(1) and 195.42(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Large banks and large savings associations are banks and 
savings associations that are not small banks or small savings 
associations defined in 12 CFR 25.12(u) or 195.12(u), respectively.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Twelve CFR 25.42(b)(2) and 195.42(b)(2) require that large banks 
and savings associations report annually in machine readable form the 
aggregate number and aggregate amount of community development loans 
originated or purchased.
    Twelve CFR 25.42(b)(3) and 195.42(b)(3) require that large banks 
and savings associations, if subject to reporting under 12 CFR 1003 
(Home Mortgage Disclosure (Regulation C)), must report the location of 
each home mortgage loan application, origination, or purchase outside 
the metropolitan statistical area(s) in which the bank or savings 
association has a home/branch office, and the location of each home 
mortgage loan application, origination, or purchase outside any 
metropolitan statistical area, in accordance with the requirements of 
Regulation C.
    Twelve CFR 25.42(c)(1) and 195.42(c)(1) provide that all banks and 
savings associations may collect and maintain in machine readable form 
certain data for consumer loans originated or purchased by a bank or 
savings association for consideration under the lending test. Under 12 
CFR 25.42(c)(2) and 195.42(c)(2), all banks and saving associations may 
include other information concerning their lending performance, 
including additional loan distribution data.
    Twelve CFR 25.42(d) and 195.42(d) provide that banks and savings 
associations that elect to have the OCC consider loans by an affiliate, 
for purposes of the lending or community development test or an 
approved strategic plan, shall collect, maintain, and report the data 
that the bank or savings association would have collected, maintained, 
and reported pursuant to 12 CFR 25.42(a)-(c) or 195.42(a)-(c), 
respectively, had the loans been originated or purchased by the bank or 
savings association. For home mortgage loans, the bank or savings 
association must also be prepared to identify the home mortgage loans 
reported under HMDA by the affiliate.
    Twelve 12 CFR 25.42(e) and 195.42(e) provide that banks and savings 
associations that elect to have the OCC consider community development 
loans by a consortium or a third party, for purposes of the lending or 
community development tests or an approved strategic plan, must report 
for those loans the data that the bank or savings association would 
have reported under 12 CFR 25.42(b)(2) or 195.42(b)(2), respectively, 
had the loans been originated or purchased by the bank or savings 
association.
