to the Secretary of the Board

AGENCY: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Board is amending its rules regarding delegation of

review and determine an appeal of denial of access to Board records 
under the Freedom of Information Act, the Privacy Act, and the Board's 
rules regarding such access.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Discussion

    The Board previously adopted a rule delegating to any member of the 
Board, as designated by the Chairman, the authority to ``review and 
determine an appeal of denial of access to Board records under the 
Freedom of Information Act, the Privacy Act, and the Board's rules 
regarding such access.'' \1\ The Board has determined that the 
Secretary of the Board is capable of acting on such requests. 
Accordingly, the Board is amending its rules regarding delegation of 
authority to delegate to the Secretary of the Board the authority to 
review and determine an appeal of denial of access to Board records 
under the Freedom of Information Act, the Privacy Act, and the Board's 
rules regarding such access, and to delete the existing delegation of 
authority to individual Board members.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 12 CFR 265.4(a)(1) (internal citations omitted).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

II. Regulatory Analysis

    These amendments relate solely to the agency's organization, 
procedure, or practice. Accordingly, the provisions of the 
Administrative Procedure Act regarding notice of proposed rulemaking 
and opportunity for public participation are not applicable.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required to be issued, 
or has been issued, in connection with this rule, it is not a ``rule'' 
for purposes of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, and that act, 
therefore, does not apply.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See 5 U.S.C. 601(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    These amendments do not contain any collection of information 
requirements as defined by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, as 
amended.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 722 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act \5\ requires the Federal 
banking agencies to use plain language in all proposed and final rules 
published after January 1, 2000. The Board has sought to present this 
rule in a simple and straightforward manner.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ Public Law 106-102, 113 Stat. 1338, 1471 (1999) (codified at 
12 U.S.C. 4809).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The rule is not a ``substantive rule'' for the purposes of the 
effective-date provision of the Administrative Procedure Act; as such, 
the act does not require the Board to delay the effective date of the 
rule.\6\ Accordingly, the amendments are effective March 6, 2018.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See 5 U.S.C. 553(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
