OMB Control No.: 1557–0319. Description: Section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act 2 (Dodd-Frank Act) requires certain financial companies, including national banks and federal savings associations, to conduct annual stress tests 3 and requires the primary financial regulatory agency 4 of those financial companies to issue regulations implementing the stress test requirements.5 Under section 165(i)(2), a covered institution is required to submit to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) and to its primary financial regulatory agency a report at such time, in such form, and containing such information as the primary financial regulatory agency may require.6 On October 9, 2012, the OCC published in the Federal Register a final 2 Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376, July 2010.

These information collections will be given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)) to the extent permitted by law. On May 24, 2018, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA) amended provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act and provided that, eighteen months after EGRRCPA’s enactment, financial companies with total consolidated assets of less than $250 billion that are not bank holding companies will no longer be subject to the company-run stress testing requirements in section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Act. In contrast, on EGRRCPA’s date of enactment, bank holding companies under $100 billion in total consolidated assets were no longer subject to section 165(i)(2). In order to avoid unnecessary burden for depository institutions and to maintain consistency between bank holding companies and depository institutions, the OCC, Board, and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation extended the deadlines for all regulatory requirements related to company-run stress testing for depository institutions with average total consolidated assets of less than $100 billion until November 25, 2019 (at which time both statutory exemptions will be in effect). The OCC, in coordination with the Board and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, is in the process of revising its stress testing regulation to incorporate EGRRPCA’s amendments. In 2012, the OCC first implemented the reporting templates referenced in the final rule. See 77 FR 49485 (August 16, 2012) and 77 FR 66663 (November 6, 2012). The OCC is now revising them as described below. The OCC intends to use the data collected to assess the reasonableness of the stress test results of covered institutions and to provide forwardlooking information to the OCC regarding a covered institution’s capital adequacy. The OCC also may use the results of the stress tests to determine whether additional analytical techniques and exercises could be appropriate to identify, measure, and monitor risks at the covered institution.

The proposed changes include changes to accommodate the revised asset threshold necessitated by EGRRCPA. The proposed changes also include the removal of the Retail Repurchase worksheet and various clarifications in the instructions.

    On May 24, 2018, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and 
Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA) amended provisions in the Dodd-Frank

financial companies with total consolidated assets of less than $250

holding companies under $100 billion in total consolidated assets were 
no longer subject to section 165(i)(2). In order to avoid unnecessary 
burden for depository institutions and to maintain consistency between

below.
    The OCC intends to use the data collected to assess the 
reasonableness of the stress test results of covered institutions and 
to provide forward-looking information to the OCC regarding a covered 
institution's capital adequacy. The OCC also may use the results of the 
stress tests to determine whether additional analytical techniques and 
exercises could be appropriate to identify, measure, and monitor risks 
at the covered institution. The stress test results are expected to 
support ongoing improvement in a covered institution's stress testing 
practices with respect to its internal assessments of capital adequacy 
and overall capital planning.
    The OCC recognizes that many covered institutions with total 
consolidated assets of $100 billion or more are required to submit 
reports using Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) 
reporting form FR Y-14A.\8\ The OCC also recognizes the Board has 
proposed to modify the FR Y-14A and, to the extent practical, the OCC 
will keep its reporting requirements consistent with the Board's FR Y-

the OCC is proposing to revise its reporting requirements to mirror the
