Title: Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements Associated with Liquidity Coverage Ratio: Liquidity Risk Measurement, Standards, and Monitoring. OMB Control No.: 1557–0323. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Type of Review: Regular review. Abstract: The quantitative liquidity requirement (12 CFR part 50) is designed to promote improvements in the measurement and management of liquidity risk. The rule applies to large and internationally active banking organizations—generally, bank holding companies, certain savings and loan holding companies, and depository institutions with $250 billion or more in total assets or $10 billion or more in onbalance sheet foreign exposure—and to their consolidated subsidiaries that are depository institutions with $10 billion or more in total consolidated assets. Section 50.22 requires that, with respect to each asset eligible for inclusion in a national bank or federal savings association’s (FSA’s) highquality liquid assets (HQLA) amount, the national bank or FSA must implement policies that require eligible HQLA to be under the control of the management function in the national bank or FSA responsible for managing liquidity risk. The management function must evidence its control over the HQLA by segregating the HQLA from other assets, with the sole intent to use the HQLA as a source of liquidity, or demonstrating the ability to monetize the assets and making the proceeds available to the liquidity management function without conflicting with a business or risk management strategy of the national bank or FSA. In addition, § 50.22 requires that a national bank or FSA have a documented methodology that results in a consistent treatment for determining that the national bank or VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:08 Oct 20, 2017 Jkt 244001 FSA’s eligible HQLA meet the requirements of § 50.22. Section 50.40 requires that a national bank or FSA notify its appropriate federal banking agency on any day when its liquidity coverage ratio is calculated to be less than the minimum requirement in § 50.10. If a national bank or FSA’s liquidity coverage ratio is below the minimum requirement in § 50.10 for three consecutive days, or if the OCC has determined that the institution is otherwise materially noncompliant, the national bank or FSA must promptly provide a plan for achieving compliance with the minimum liquidity requirement in § 50.10 and all other requirements of § 50.40 to the OCC. The liquidity plan must include, as applicable: (1) An assessment of the national bank or FSA ’s liquidity position; (2) the actions the national bank or FSA has taken and will take to achieve full compliance, including a plan for adjusting the national bank or FSA’s risk profile, risk management, and funding sources in order to achieve full compliance and a plan for remediating any operational or management issues that contributed to noncompliance; (3) an estimated time frame for achieving full compliance; and (4) a commitment to provide a progress report to the OCC at least weekly until full compliance is achieved. Frequency of Response: Annual and event generated. Affected Public: Covered national banks and FSAs. Estimated Number of Respondents: 19. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,361 hours. The OCC issued a notice for 60 days of comment regarding this collection on July 19, 2017, 82 FR 33202. No comments were received.

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. The OCC is 
requesting that OMB extend its approval of the following information

    Type of Review: Regular review.
    Abstract: The quantitative liquidity requirement (12 CFR part 50) 
is designed to promote improvements in the measurement and management 
of liquidity risk.
    The rule applies to large and internationally active banking 
organizations--generally, bank holding companies, certain savings and 
loan holding companies, and depository institutions with $250 billion 
or more in total assets or $10 billion or more in on-balance sheet 
foreign exposure--and to their consolidated subsidiaries that are 
depository institutions with $10 billion or more in total consolidated 
assets.
    Section 50.22 requires that, with respect to each asset eligible 
for inclusion in a national bank or federal savings association's 
(FSA's) high-quality liquid assets (HQLA) amount, the national bank or 
FSA must implement policies that require eligible HQLA to be under the 
control of the management function in the national bank or FSA 
responsible for managing liquidity risk. The management function must 
evidence its control over the HQLA by segregating the HQLA from other 
assets, with the sole intent to use the HQLA as a source of liquidity, 
or demonstrating the ability to monetize the assets and making the 
proceeds available to the liquidity management function without 
conflicting with a business or risk management strategy of the national 
bank or FSA. In addition, Sec.  50.22 requires that a national bank or 
FSA have a documented methodology that results in a consistent 
treatment for determining that the national bank or FSA's eligible HQLA 
meet the requirements of Sec.  50.22.
    Section 50.40 requires that a national bank or FSA notify its 
appropriate federal banking agency on any day when its liquidity 
coverage ratio is calculated to be less than the minimum requirement in 
Sec.  50.10. If a national bank or FSA's liquidity coverage ratio is 
below the minimum requirement in Sec.  50.10 for three consecutive 
days, or if the OCC has determined that the institution is otherwise 
materially noncompliant, the national bank or FSA must promptly provide 
a plan for achieving compliance with the minimum liquidity requirement 
in Sec.  50.10 and all other requirements of Sec.  50.40 to the OCC.
    The liquidity plan must include, as applicable: (1) An assessment 
of the national bank or FSA 's liquidity position; (2) the actions the 
national bank or FSA has taken and will take to achieve full 
compliance, including a plan for adjusting the national bank or FSA's 
risk profile, risk management, and funding sources in order to achieve 
full compliance and a plan for remediating any operational or 
management issues that contributed to noncompliance; (3) an estimated 
time frame for achieving full compliance; and (4) a commitment to 
provide a progress report to the OCC at least weekly until full 
compliance is achieved.
    Frequency of Response: Annual and event generated.
    Affected Public: Covered national banks and FSAs.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 19.
