SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In its PTCSP, NCTD asserts that the I-ETMS system it is implementing is designed as a vital overlay PTC system as defined in 49 CFR 236.1015(e)(2). The PTCSP describes NCTD’s I-ETMS implementation and the associated IETMS safety processes, safety analyses, and test, validation, and verification processes used during the development of I–ETMS. The PTCSP also contains NCTD’s operational and support requirements and procedures. NCTD’s PTCSP and the accompanying request for approval and system certification are available for review online at www.regulations.gov (Docket Number FRA–2010–0049) and in person at DOT’s Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590.

[FR Doc. 2017–21618 Filed 10–5–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–06–P DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY Office of the Comptroller of the Currency FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities: Comment Request Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Treasury; Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board); and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). ACTION: Joint notice and request for comment. AGENCY: In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (the agencies) may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The agencies, under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), have approved the publication for public comment of the proposed Annual Dodd-Frank Act Company-Run Stress Test Report for Depository Institutions and Holding Companies with $10–$50 Billion in Total Consolidated Assets (FFIEC 016). This proposed report would combine the agencies’ three separate, yet identical, stress test report forms (as described in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION), which SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00135 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46887 are currently approved collections of information, into a single new FFIEC report. As part of their proposed adoption of the new FFIEC 016 report, the agencies also are proposing to implement a limited number of revisions that would align the report with recent burden-reducing changes to the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income and the Board’s FR Y–9C Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies. In addition, the agencies are proposing to have institutions provide their Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) on the report form, if they already have one. The proposed FFIEC 016 reporting requirements reflect the company-run stress testing requirements promulgated by the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (as reflected in the agencies’ current information collections). The Board, in connection with this proposal and conditioned on the final adoption of the FFIEC 016, is proposing to replace the FR Y–16 (Annual Company-Run Stress Test Report For State Member Banks, Bank Holding Companies, and Savings and Loan Holding Companies with Total Consolidated Assets Greater Than $10 Billion and Less Than $50 Billion), which it currently uses to collect the annual company-run stress test results. Also in connection with the final adoption of the FFIEC 016, the OCC and the FDIC are proposing to replace the OCC’s DFAST 10–50B (Annual Company-Run Stress Test Reporting Template and Documentation for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets of $10 Billion to $50 Billion under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act), and the FDIC’s DFAST 10–50 (Company-Run Annual Stress Test Reporting Template and Documentation for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets of $10 Billion to $50 Billion under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act), respectively, with the FFIEC 016. The respondents for the proposed FFIEC 016 are institutions with average total consolidated assets of at least $10 billion, but less than $50 billion. The proposed FFIEC 016 would take effect for the December 31, 2017, as-of date of the stress test report. The submission deadline for the report would be the following July 31. At the end of the comment period for this notice, the comments and recommendations received will be reviewed to determine whether the FFIEC and the agencies should modify the proposal for the FFIEC 016 report E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1 46888 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 193 / Friday, October 6, 2017 / Notices form before giving final approval. As required by the PRA, the agencies will then publish a second Federal Register notice for a 30-day comment period and submit the FFIEC 016 information collection to OMB for review and approval. Comments must be submitted on or before December 5, 2017. ADDRESSES: Interested parties are invited to submit written comments to any or all of the agencies.

General Description of Reports The proposed FFIEC 016 information collection will be mandatory for VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:40 Oct 05, 2017 Jkt 244001 institutions with average total consolidated assets of at least $10 billion, but less than $50 billion. The FFIEC 016 implements the reporting of the annual company-run stress testing required of such institutions under section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Public Law 111–203 (Dodd-Frank Act), and each agency’s implementing regulation.1 All data reported in the proposed FFIEC 016 would be given confidential treatment under 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8). Abstract The FFIEC 016 report would be submitted by institutions supervised by the agencies with average total consolidated assets of at least $10 billion, but less than $50 billion, to report their company-run stress test results. These reports collect quantitative projections of balance sheet assets and liabilities, income, losses, and capital across three scenarios (baseline, adverse, and severely adverse) and qualitative information on methodologies used to develop these internal projections. Data received in the agencies’ $10– $50 billion annual Dodd-Frank Act company-run stress test reports are used in connection with supervision and regulation of these institutions to form supervisory assessments of the quality of a company’s stress-testing process and, overall, as part of the broader assessment of a company’s capital adequacy and risk management process. Data collected in these reports provide the agencies with one of many tools available to examiners to assist in the analysis and assessment of a company’s capital position and planning process. Current Actions I. Discussion of Proposed FFIEC Report Form Each agency has issued rules applicable to the banking organizations it supervises with total consolidated assets of at least $10 billion, but less than $50 billion, that implement the company-run stress testing requirement promulgated by section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Act.2 Under the agencies’ respective rules, institutions that meet this asset threshold are required to conduct, and report the results of, an annual stress test using scenarios provided by the agencies. The annual as-of date of the stress test report is December 31, and the 1 12 CFR part 46 (OCC); 12 CFR part 252, subpart B (Board); 12 CFR part 325, subpart C (FDIC). 2 12 CFR part 46 (OCC); 12 CFR part 252, subpart B (Board); 12 CFR part 325, subpart C (FDIC). PO 00000 Frm 00137 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46889 submission deadline for the report is the following July 31. Currently, the agencies maintain separate, yet identical, report forms (FR Y–16, FDIC DFAST 10–50, and OCC DFAST 10–50B) for the banks, savings associations, and holding companies they supervise to report these companyrun stress test results. These annual reports collect quantitative projections of balance sheet assets and liabilities, income, losses, and capital across a range of macroeconomic and financial scenarios as well as qualitative supporting information on the methodologies and processes used to develop those internal projections. The agencies are proposing to combine these separate data collections and designate the combined report as a uniform FFIEC data collection. As part of their proposed adoption of the new FFIEC 016 report, the agencies also are proposing to change the quantitative and qualitative information currently collected in their separate, yet identical, report forms to implement a limited number of revisions that would align the new report with recent burdenreducing changes to the FFIEC 031, FFIEC 041, and the Board’s FR Y–9C.3 These revisions are not expected to change the estimated reporting burden for the proposed new FFIEC 016 compared to the estimated reporting burden for the agencies’ existing stress test report forms. The following revisions to the FFIEC 031, FFIEC 041, and FR Y–9C (as applicable) that took effect March 31, 2017, would affect the proposed FFIEC 016: (1) On the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule RI, Memorandum item 14.a, and on the FR Y–9C Schedule HI, Memorandum item 17(a), ‘‘Total otherthan-temporary impairment losses,’’ was removed, but institutions continue to report other-than-temporary impairment losses recognized in earnings on the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule RI, Memorandum item 14, and the FR Y–9C Schedule HI, Memorandum item 17. The agencies propose for the new FFIEC 016 report form and instructions to replace line item 25, ‘‘Total other-thantemporary impairment losses,’’ on each Income Statement scenario schedule with ‘‘Other-than-temporary impairment losses on held-to-maturity and available-for-sale debt securities 3 FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (OMB Control Nos.: OCC, 1557–0081; Board, 7100–0036; and FDIC, 3064– 0052): See 81 FR 45357 (July 13, 2016) and 82 FR 2444 (January 9, 2017); FR Y–9C Consolidated Financial Statements for Holding Companies (OMB Control No.: Board, 7100–0128): See 81 FR 62129 (September 8, 2016).

(2) On the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule RC–E, Part I, Memorandum items 1.c.(1), ‘‘Brokered deposits of less than $100,000,’’ and 1.c.(2), ‘‘Brokered deposits of $100,000 through $250,000 and certain brokered retirement deposit accounts,’’ were combined into a single item, Memorandum item 1.c, ‘‘Brokered deposits of $250,000 or less (fully insured brokered deposits).’’ The agencies propose for the new FFIEC 016 report form and instructions to align its Balance Sheet line items 32 and 33 for retail and wholesale funding calculations, respectively, with the updated FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule RC–E, Part I, Memorandum item 1.c, ‘‘Brokered deposits of $250,000 or less (fully insured brokered deposits).’’ (3) On Schedule RC–M of the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041, items for the amount of loans covered by FDIC losssharing agreements in the following loan categories were removed and combined with existing Schedule RC– M, item 13.a.(5), ‘‘All other loans and all leases’’ covered by such agreements: Item 13.a.(2), ‘‘Loans to finance agricultural production and other loans to farmers’’; item 13.a.(3), ‘‘Commercial and industrial loans’’; item 13.a.(4)(a), ‘‘Credit cards’’; item 13.a.(4)(b), ‘‘Automobile loans’’; and item 13.a.(4)(c), ‘‘Other (includes revolving credit plans other than credit cards, and other consumer loans).’’ In order to keep the data collection uniform and comparable across types of reporting institutions, the agencies propose for the new FFIEC 016 report form and instructions to discontinue the deduction of loans covered by FDIC loss-sharing agreements from each of the loan categories collected in Balance Sheet line items 1 through 13. In addition, in the proposed new FFIEC 016 report form, existing Balance Sheet line item 14, ‘‘Loans covered by FDIC loss-sharing agreements,’’ will be retained. In addition, the agencies are proposing to have reporting institutions provide their LEI on the FFIEC 016 report form, if they have one. The LEI is a 20-digit alpha-numeric code that uniquely identifies entities that engage in financial transactions. The recent financial crisis spurred the development of a Global LEI System (GLEIS). Internationally, regulators and market participants have recognized the importance of the LEI as a key improvement in financial data systems. The Group of Twenty (G–20) nations VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:40 Oct 05, 2017 Jkt 244001 directed the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to lead the coordination of international regulatory work and deliver concrete recommendations on the GLEIS by mid-2012, which in turn were endorsed by the G–20 later that same year. In January 2013, the LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC), including participation by regulators from around the world, was established to oversee the GLEIS on an interim basis. With the establishment of the full Global LEI Foundation in 2014, the ROC continues to review and develop broad policy standards for LEIs. The OCC, the Board, and the FDIC are all members of the ROC. The LEI system is designed to facilitate several financial stability objectives, including the provision of higher quality and more accurate financial data. In the United States, the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) has recommended that regulators and market participants continue to work together to improve the quality and comprehensiveness of financial data both nationally and globally. In this regard, the FSOC also has recommended that its member agencies promote the use of the LEI in reporting requirements and rulemakings, where appropriate.4 With respect to the FFIEC 016, the agencies are proposing to have reporting institutions provide their LEI on the cover page of this new report once it is implemented, if a reporting institution has an LEI. A reporting institution that does not have an LEI would not be required to obtain one for purposes of reporting it on the FFIEC 016. The uniform FFIEC 016 report would be collected through the application currently used to collect the agencies’ separate stress test reporting forms, the Federal Reserve’s Reporting Central application. The agencies believe that developing a uniform report under the FFIEC reporting structure will promote uniform standards and reporting across the agencies, which is consistent with the function of the FFIEC.5 The proposed FFIEC 016 information collection would satisfy each agency’s company-run stress-testing requirements, while ensuring consistency and comparability of the stress-testing information across institutions. The change from three separate agency-specific reports to an interagency FFIEC report is expected to be a seamless change for institutions 4 Financial Stability Oversight Council 2015 Annual Report, page 14, http://www.treasury.gov/ initiatives/fsoc/studies-reports/Documents/ 2015%20FSOC%20Annual%20Report.pdf. 5 See 12 U.S.C. 3305(c). PO 00000 Frm 00138 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 with $10 to $50 billion in assets currently reporting annual Dodd-Frank Act stress-testing information. The change also would ensure that future collections of this information remain uniform across the agencies. The proposed FFIEC 016 report form would take effect as of December 31, 2017. The first annual filing deadline for the FFIEC 016 report form would be July 31, 2018. II. 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 the information. Comments submitted in response to the joint notice will be shared among the agencies. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: October 2, 2017.

Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities: Comment 
Request

AGENCY: Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Treasury; 
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board); and Federal 
Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

ACTION: Joint notice and request for comment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act (PRA) of 1995, the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (the agencies) may 
not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond 
to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid 
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The agencies, 
under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination 
Council (FFIEC), have approved the publication for public comment of 
the proposed Annual Dodd-Frank Act Company-Run Stress Test Report for 
Depository Institutions and Holding Companies with $10-$50 Billion in 
Total Consolidated Assets (FFIEC 016). This proposed report would 
combine the agencies' three separate, yet identical, stress test report 
forms (as described in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION), which are 
currently approved collections of information, into a single new FFIEC 
report. As part of their proposed adoption of the new FFIEC 016 report, 
the agencies also are proposing to implement a limited number of 
revisions that would align the report with recent burden-reducing 
changes to the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Consolidated Reports of 
Condition and Income and the Board's FR Y-9C Consolidated Financial 
Statements for Holding Companies. In addition, the agencies are 
proposing to have institutions provide their Legal Entity Identifier 
(LEI) on the report form, if they already have one. The proposed FFIEC 
016 reporting requirements reflect the company-run stress testing 
requirements promulgated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and 
Consumer Protection Act (as reflected in the agencies' current 
information collections).
    The Board, in connection with this proposal and conditioned on the 
final adoption of the FFIEC 016, is proposing to replace the FR Y-16 
(Annual Company-Run Stress Test Report For State Member Banks, Bank 
Holding Companies, and Savings and Loan Holding Companies with Total 
Consolidated Assets Greater Than $10 Billion and Less Than $50 
Billion), which it currently uses to collect the annual company-run 
stress test results. Also in connection with the final adoption of the 
FFIEC 016, the OCC and the FDIC are proposing to replace the OCC's 
DFAST 10-50B (Annual Company-Run Stress Test Reporting Template and 
Documentation for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets 
of $10 Billion to $50 Billion under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform 
and Consumer Protection Act), and the FDIC's DFAST 10-50 (Company-Run 
Annual Stress Test Reporting Template and Documentation for Covered 
Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets of $10 Billion to $50 
Billion under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection 
Act), respectively, with the FFIEC 016.
    The respondents for the proposed FFIEC 016 are institutions with 
average total consolidated assets of at least $10 billion, but less 
than $50 billion. The proposed FFIEC 016 would take effect for the 
December 31, 2017, as-of date of the stress test report. The submission 
deadline for the report would be the following July 31.
    At the end of the comment period for this notice, the comments and 
recommendations received will be reviewed to determine whether the 
FFIEC and the agencies should modify the proposal for the FFIEC 016 
report

General Description of Reports

    The proposed FFIEC 016 information collection will be mandatory for 
institutions with average total consolidated assets of at least $10 
billion, but less than $50 billion. The FFIEC 016 implements the 
reporting of the annual company-run stress testing required of such 
institutions under section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street 
Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Public Law 111-203 (Dodd-Frank 
Act), and each agency's implementing regulation.\1\ All data reported 
in the proposed FFIEC 016 would be given confidential treatment under 5 
U.S.C. 552(b)(8).

Abstract

    The FFIEC 016 report would be submitted by institutions supervised 
by the agencies with average total consolidated assets of at least $10 
billion, but less than $50 billion, to report their company-run stress 
test results. These reports collect quantitative projections of balance 
sheet assets and liabilities, income, losses, and capital across three 
scenarios (baseline, adverse, and severely adverse) and qualitative 
information on methodologies used to develop these internal 
projections.
    Data received in the agencies' $10-$50 billion annual Dodd-Frank 
Act company-run stress test reports are used in connection with 
supervision and regulation of these institutions to form supervisory 
assessments of the quality of a company's stress-testing process and, 
overall, as part of the broader assessment of a company's capital 
adequacy and risk management process. Data collected in these reports 
provide the agencies with one of many tools available to examiners to 
assist in the analysis and assessment of a company's capital position 
and planning process.

Current Actions

I. Discussion of Proposed FFIEC Report Form

    Each agency has issued rules applicable to the banking 
organizations it supervises with total consolidated assets of at least 
$10 billion, but less than $50 billion, that implement the company-run 
stress testing requirement promulgated by section 165(i)(2) of the 
Dodd-Frank Act.\2\ Under the agencies' respective rules, institutions 
that meet this asset threshold are required to conduct, and report the 
results of, an annual stress test using scenarios provided by the 
agencies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ 12 CFR part 46 (OCC); 12 CFR part 252, subpart B (Board); 12 
CFR part 325, subpart C (FDIC).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The annual as-of date of the stress test report is December 31, and 
the submission deadline for the report is the following July 31.
    Currently, the agencies maintain separate, yet identical, report 
forms (FR Y-16, FDIC DFAST 10-50, and OCC DFAST 10-50B) for the banks, 
savings associations, and holding companies they supervise to report 
these company-run stress test results. These annual reports collect 
quantitative projections of balance sheet assets and liabilities, 
income, losses, and capital across a range of macroeconomic and 
financial scenarios as well as qualitative supporting information on 
the methodologies and processes used to develop those internal 
projections. The agencies are proposing to combine these separate data 
collections and designate the combined report as a uniform FFIEC data 
collection. As part of their proposed adoption of the new FFIEC 016 
report, the agencies also are proposing to change the quantitative and 
qualitative information currently collected in their separate, yet 
identical, report forms to implement a limited number of revisions that 
would align the new report with recent burden-reducing changes to the 
FFIEC 031, FFIEC 041, and the Board's FR Y-9C.\3\ These revisions are 
not expected to change the estimated reporting burden for the proposed 
new FFIEC 016 compared to the estimated reporting burden for the 
agencies' existing stress test report forms.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Consolidated Reports of Condition 
and Income (OMB Control Nos.: OCC, 1557-0081; Board, 7100-0036; and 
FDIC, 3064-0052): See 81 FR 45357 (July 13, 2016) and 82 FR 2444 
(January 9, 2017); FR Y-9C Consolidated Financial Statements for 
Holding Companies (OMB Control No.: Board, 7100-0128): See 81 FR 
62129 (September 8, 2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following revisions to the FFIEC 031, FFIEC 041, and FR Y-9C 
(as applicable) that took effect March 31, 2017, would affect the 
proposed FFIEC 016:
    (1) On the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule RI, Memorandum item 
14.a, and on the FR Y-9C Schedule HI, Memorandum item 17(a), ``Total 
other-than-temporary impairment losses,'' was removed, but institutions 
continue to report other-than-temporary impairment losses recognized in 
earnings on the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule RI, Memorandum item 
14, and the FR Y-9C Schedule HI, Memorandum item 17. The agencies 
propose for the new FFIEC 016 report form and instructions to replace 
line item 25, ``Total other-than-temporary impairment losses,'' on each 
Income Statement scenario schedule with ``Other-than-temporary 
impairment losses on held-to-maturity and available-for-sale debt 
securities

[[Page 46890]]

recognized in earnings'' as defined in FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule 
RI, Memorandum item 14, and FR Y-9C Schedule HI, Memorandum item 17.
    (2) On the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule RC-E, Part I, 
Memorandum items 1.c.(1), ``Brokered deposits of less than $100,000,'' 
and 1.c.(2), ``Brokered deposits of $100,000 through $250,000 and 
certain brokered retirement deposit accounts,'' were combined into a 
single item, Memorandum item 1.c, ``Brokered deposits of $250,000 or 
less (fully insured brokered deposits).'' The agencies propose for the 
new FFIEC 016 report form and instructions to align its Balance Sheet 
line items 32 and 33 for retail and wholesale funding calculations, 
respectively, with the updated FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Schedule RC-E, 
Part I, Memorandum item 1.c, ``Brokered deposits of $250,000 or less 
(fully insured brokered deposits).''
    (3) On Schedule RC-M of the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041, items for the 
amount of loans covered by FDIC loss-sharing agreements in the 
following loan categories were removed and combined with existing 
Schedule RC-M, item 13.a.(5), ``All other loans and all leases'' 
covered by such agreements: Item 13.a.(2), ``Loans to finance 
agricultural production and other loans to farmers''; item 13.a.(3), 
``Commercial and industrial loans''; item 13.a.(4)(a), ``Credit 
cards''; item 13.a.(4)(b), ``Automobile loans''; and item 13.a.(4)(c), 
``Other (includes revolving credit plans other than credit cards, and 
other consumer loans).'' In order to keep the data collection uniform 
and comparable across types of reporting institutions, the agencies 
propose for the new FFIEC 016 report form and instructions to 
discontinue the deduction of loans covered by FDIC loss-sharing 
agreements from each of the loan categories collected in Balance Sheet 
line items 1 through 13. In addition, in the proposed new FFIEC 016 
report form, existing Balance Sheet line item 14, ``Loans covered by 
FDIC loss-sharing agreements,'' will be retained.
    In addition, the agencies are proposing to have reporting 
institutions provide their LEI on the FFIEC 016 report form, if they 
have one. The LEI is a 20-digit alpha-numeric code that uniquely 
identifies entities that engage in financial transactions. The recent 
financial crisis spurred the development of a Global LEI System 
(GLEIS). Internationally, regulators and market participants have 
recognized the importance of the LEI as a key improvement in financial 
data systems. The Group of Twenty (G-20) nations directed the Financial 
Stability Board (FSB) to lead the coordination of international 
regulatory work and deliver concrete recommendations on the GLEIS by 
mid-2012, which in turn were endorsed by the G-20 later that same year. 
In January 2013, the LEI Regulatory Oversight Committee (ROC), 
including participation by regulators from around the world, was 
established to oversee the GLEIS on an interim basis. With the 
establishment of the full Global LEI Foundation in 2014, the ROC 
continues to review and develop broad policy standards for LEIs. The 
OCC, the Board, and the FDIC are all members of the ROC.
    The LEI system is designed to facilitate several financial 
stability objectives, including the provision of higher quality and 
more accurate financial data. In the United States, the Financial 
Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) has recommended that regulators and 
market participants continue to work together to improve the quality 
and comprehensiveness of financial data both nationally and globally. 
In this regard, the FSOC also has recommended that its member agencies 
promote the use of the LEI in reporting requirements and rulemakings, 
where appropriate.\4\

page 14, http://www.treasury.gov/initiatives/fsoc/studies-reports/Documents/2015%20FSOC%20Annual%20Report.pdf.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    With respect to the FFIEC 016, the agencies are proposing to have 
reporting institutions provide their LEI on the cover page of this new 
report once it is implemented, if a reporting institution has an LEI. A 
reporting institution that does not have an LEI would not be required 
to obtain one for purposes of reporting it on the FFIEC 016.
    The uniform FFIEC 016 report would be collected through the 
application currently used to collect the agencies' separate stress 
test reporting forms, the Federal Reserve's Reporting Central 
application. The agencies believe that developing a uniform report 
under the FFIEC reporting structure will promote uniform standards and 
reporting across the agencies, which is consistent with the function of 
the FFIEC.\5\ The proposed FFIEC 016 information collection would 
satisfy each agency's company-run stress-testing requirements, while 
ensuring consistency and comparability of the stress-testing 
information across institutions. The change from three separate agency-
specific reports to an interagency FFIEC report is expected to be a 
seamless change for institutions with $10 to $50 billion in assets 
currently reporting annual Dodd-Frank Act stress-testing information. 
The change also would ensure that future collections of this 
information remain uniform across the agencies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See 12 U.S.C. 3305(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The proposed FFIEC 016 report form would take effect as of December 
31, 2017. The first annual filing deadline for the FFIEC 016 report 
form would be July 31, 2018.
