Download as PDF daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 53250 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 204 / Monday, October 22, 2018 / Notices Ensuring Integrity of Internal Capital Adequacy Assessments Paragraph 41. A banking organization should maintain thorough documentation of its ICAAP to ensure transparency. At a minimum, this should include a description of the banking organization’s overall capitalmanagement process, including the committees and individuals responsible for the ICAAP; the frequency and distribution of ICAAP-related reporting; and the procedures for the periodic evaluation of the appropriateness and adequacy of the ICAAP. In addition, where applicable, ICAAP documentation should demonstrate the banking organization’s sound use of quantitative methods (including model selection and limitations) and dataselection techniques, as well as appropriate maintenance, controls, and validation. A banking organization should document and explain the role of third-party and vendor products, services and information—including methodologies, model inputs, systems, data, and ratings—and the extent to which they are used within the ICAAP. A banking organization should have a process to regularly evaluate the performance of third-party and vendor products, services and information. As part of the ICAAP documentation, a banking organization should document the assumptions, methods, data, information, and judgment used in its quantitative and qualitative approaches. Paragraph 43. The board of directors and senior management have certain responsibilities in developing, implementing, and overseeing the ICAAP. The board should approve the ICAAP and its components. The board or its appropriately delegated agent should review the ICAAP and its components on a regular basis and approve any revisions. That review should encompass the effectiveness of the ICAAP, the appropriateness of risk tolerance levels and capital planning, and the strength of control infrastructures. Senior management should continually ensure that the ICAAP is functioning effectively and as intended, under a formal review policy that is explicit and well documented. Additionally, a banking organization’s internal audit function should play a key role in reviewing the controls and governance surrounding the ICAAP on an ongoing basis. Paragraph 46. As part of the ICAAP, the board or its delegated agent, as well as appropriate senior management, should periodically review the resulting assessment of overall capital adequacy. This review, which should occur at least VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:12 Oct 19, 2018 Jkt 247001 annually, should include an analysis of how measures of internal capital adequacy compare with other capital measures (such as regulatory, accounting-based or marketdetermined). Upon completion of this review, the board or its delegated agent should determine that, consistent with safety and soundness, the banking organization’s capital takes into account all material risks and is appropriate for its risk profile. However, in the event a capital deficiency is uncovered (that is, if capital is not consistent with the banking organization’s risk profile or risk tolerance) management should consult and adhere to formal procedures to correct the capital deficiency. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The collection of information is authorized pursuant to the International Lending Supervision Act (12 U.S.C. 3907(a)(1) and (b)(3)), section 1831o of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1831o), section 5 of the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 (12 U.S.C. 1844), section 10(b)(2) of the Homeowners’ Loan Act (12 U.S.C. 1467a(b)), and section 171 of the DoddFrank Act (12 U.S.C. 5371). The FR 4199 is voluntary. Because the collections of information associated with the FR 4199 do not involve the submission of information to the Board, no issues of confidentiality would normally arise. To the extent that the Board collects information kept by a banking organization as a record during an examination of the banking organization, confidential treatment may be afforded to the records under exemption 8 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)), which protects information collected as part of the Board’s supervisory process. Additionally, individual respondents may request that certain information be afforded confidential treatment pursuant to exemption 4 of FOIA (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)) if the information has not previously been publically disclosed and the release of the data would likely cause substantial harm to the competitive position of the respondent. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, October 16, 2018. Michele Taylor Fennell, Assistant Secretary of the Board.

To meet the requirements of the Acts, the General Services Administration Regulation prescribes provision 552.223–72, Hazardous Material Information, to be inserted in solicitations and contracts that provides for delivery of hazardous materials on a Free On Board (FOB) origin basis. This information collection will be accomplished by means of the provision which requires the contractor to identify for each National Stock Number (NSN), the DOT Shipping Name, Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazards Class, and whether the item requires a DOT label.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    The Federal Hazardous Substance Act and Hazardous Material 
Transportation Act prescribe standards for packaging of hazardous 
substances. To meet the requirements of the Acts, the General Services 
Administration Regulation prescribes provision 552.223-72, Hazardous 
Material Information, to be inserted in solicitations and contracts 
that provides for delivery of hazardous materials on a Free On Board 
(FOB) origin basis.
    This information collection will be accomplished by means of the 
provision which requires the contractor to identify for each National 
Stock Number (NSN), the DOT Shipping Name, Department of Transportation 
(DOT) Hazards Class, and whether the item requires a DOT label. 
Contracting Officers and technical personnel use the information to 
monitor and ensure contract requirements based on law and regulation.
    Properly identified and labeled items of hazardous material allows 
for appropriate handling of such items throughout GSA's supply chain 
system. The information is used by GSA, stored in an NSN database and 
provided to GSA customers. Non-Collection and/or a less frequently 
conducted collection of the information resulting from GSAR provision 
552.223-72 would prevent the Government from being properly notified. 
Government activities may be hindered from apprising their employees 
of; (1) All hazards to which they may be exposed; (2) Relative symptoms 
and appropriate emergency treatment; and (3) Proper conditions and 
precautions for safe use and exposure.
