Proposal To Approve Under OMB Delegated Authority the Extension for Three Years, Without Revision, of the Following Information Collection Report title: Disclosure Requirements of Regulation Y Associated with Minimum Requirements for Appraisal Management Companies. Agency form number: FR HY–5. OMB control number: 7100–0370. Frequency: Event generated. Respondents: Federally regulated and state regulated Appraisal Management Companies (AMCs) and U.S. states. Estimated number of respondents: 3,136. Estimated average hours per response: Section 225.192, 0.08 hours; Section 225.193, 41 hours; Section 225.195, 1 hour; Section 225.196, 1 hour. Estimated annual burden hours: Section 225.192, 237 hours; Section 225.193, 3214 hours; Section 225.195, 11 hours; Section 225.196, 51 hours. General description of report: The Board’s disclosure requirements associated with minimum requirements VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:35 Mar 05, 2019 Jkt 247001 for AMCs are found in sections 225.192, 225.193, 225.195, and 225.196 of the Board’s Regulation Y. Section 225.192(b), Written Notice of Appraiser Removal from Network or Panel, provides that an appraiser in an AMC’s network or panel is deemed to remain a part of the AMC’s appraiser panel until the AMC (1) sends a written notice to the appraiser removing the appraiser with an explanation or (2) receives a written notice from the appraiser asking to be removed or a notice of the death or incapacity of the appraiser. Participating states must have an AMC registration and supervision program. Pursuant to section 225.193(a), each participating state must establish and maintain within its appraiser certifying and licensing agency a registration and supervision program with the legal authority and mechanisms to, among other things, review and approve or deny an AMC’s application for initial registration; require AMCs to submit reports, information, and documents; and report violations of appraisal-related laws, regulations, or orders, and disciplinary and enforcement actions to the Appraisal Subcommittee. Section 225.193(b) requires each participating state to require nonfederally regulated AMCs to register with the state appraiser certifying and licensing agency. Section 225.195(c) requires a federally regulated AMC to report to the state or states in which it operates the information required to be submitted by the state pursuant to the Appraisal Subcommittee’s policies regarding the determination of the AMC National Registry fee, including information relating to certain ownership limitations in the regulation. Section 225.196 requires that each participating state submit to the Appraisal Subcommittee the information required to be submitted by Appraisal Subcommittee regulations or guidance concerning AMCs that operate in the state. There are no required reporting forms associated with these information collections. Compliance with the information collections is mandatory for AMCs and voluntary for states. No other federal law mandates these disclosure requirements. This information is not available from any other source. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR HY–5 is authorized pursuant to section 1124(a) of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA), which provides that the Agencies ‘‘shall jointly, by rule, PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8099 establish minimum requirements to be applied by a State in the registration of [AMCs].’’ 1 Section 1124(e) of the FIRREA requires that the Agencies ‘‘jointly promulgate regulations for the reporting of the activities of [AMCs] to the [Appraisal Subcommittee of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (ASC)] in determining the payment of the annual registry fee.’’ 2 In addition, pursuant to section 1109(a) of the FIRREA, each participating state with an appraiser certifying and licensing agency must transmit to the ASC ‘‘[1] a roster listing individuals who have received a State certification or license . . . [2] reports on the issuance and renewal of licenses and certifications, sanctions, disciplinary actions, license and certification revocations, and license and certification suspensions on a timely basis to the national registry of the [ASC] . . . [3] including investigations initiated and disciplinary actions taken.’’ 3 Section 1124 of the FIRREA does not compel a state to establish an AMC registration and supervision program, nor is a penalty imposed on a state that does not establish a regulatory structure for AMCs.4 Therefore, the FR HY–5 is voluntary for states. The FR HY–5 is mandatory for AMCs. Because the Federal Reserve will not collect this information, confidentiality issues would normally not arise. Because the records are retained at banking organizations, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) will only be implicated if the Board’s examiners retain a copy of the record as part of an examination or supervision of a banking institution. In that case, the records would be exempt from disclosure under exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects examination materials from disclosure (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). Exemption 4 of the FOIA, which protects confidential financial information, and exemption 6 of the FOIA, which protects non-public personal information, may also be applicable (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(6)). Consultation outside the agency: The Board, the FDIC, the OCC, and the FHFA collaborated in reassessing and confirming their burden estimates and methodologies for this submission and discussed potential improvements and evaluations for future submissions. 1 12 U.S.C. 3353(a).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. 5. Assess information collection costs. Proposed Project Study on Disparities in Distress Screening Among Lung and Ovarian Cancer—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Background and Brief Description Within the cancer treatment community, interest in the psychosocial impacts of cancer diagnosis and treatment is increasing. These psychosocial impacts are wide ranging PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and include not only anxiety related to the illness and treatment side effects such as pain, fatigue and cognition, but also stress related to nonmedical issues such as family relationships, financial hardship, social stressors (e.g. transportation), and stigmatization. There is growing evidence that addressing the psychosocial stresses of cancer survivors increases both their longevity and quality of life. The 2016 Institute of Medicine (currently, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine) ovarian cancer report, funded by CDC, calls for increased study of the psychosocial needs of ovarian cancer survivors, recognizing the high rates of depression, anxiety, and distress. Up to 60% of lung cancer survivors also experience high levels of distress. Both ovarian and lung cancer patients have relatively low 5-year survival rates (45% and 17%, respectively). Therefore, CDC believes that it is imperative to develop a greater understanding about the types of psychosocial services they receive during their course of treatment and follow-up care. CDC proposes a new information collection to examine the extent to which disparities exist in distress screening and follow-up among cancer treatment facilities and programs across the country. The study will include 50 healthcare facilities. From these facilities, we will request electronic health records (EHR) of 2,000 lung and ovarian cancer survivors. Data elements collected will include patient demographic information, cancer diagnosis and treatment, experience with distress screening and follow-up care, and medical service utilization. Patient names, addresses, birth dates and Social Security Numbers will not be collected. Staff from twelve of the 50 participating healthcare facilities will be invited to participate in an interview and focus group to provide contextual understanding about facilitators and barriers to distress screening and followup processes. This is a one-time data collection. Results of this study will provide CDC’s National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) with information to assist with the development of information, resources, technical assistance, and future evidence-based interventions to improve the quality of life of lung and ovarian cancer survivors. Summative findings will be used to evaluate the need to help with policy, systems, or environmental changes that may enhance the landscape of quality of life services for cancer survivors in communities at large.

Management Companies (AMCs) and U.S. states.
    Estimated number of respondents: 3,136.
    Estimated average hours per response: Section 225.192, 0.08 hours; 
Section 225.193, 41 hours; Section 225.195, 1 hour; Section 225.196, 1 
hour.
    Estimated annual burden hours: Section 225.192, 237 hours; Section 
225.193, 3214 hours; Section 225.195, 11 hours; Section 225.196, 51 
hours.
    General description of report: The Board's disclosure requirements 
associated with minimum requirements for AMCs are found in sections 
225.192, 225.193, 225.195, and 225.196 of the Board's Regulation Y.
    Section 225.192(b), Written Notice of Appraiser Removal from 
Network or Panel, provides that an appraiser in an AMC's network or 
panel is deemed to remain a part of the AMC's appraiser panel until the 
AMC (1) sends a written notice to the appraiser removing the appraiser 
with an explanation or (2) receives a written notice from the appraiser 
asking to be removed or a notice of the death or incapacity of the 
appraiser.
    Participating states must have an AMC registration and supervision 
program. Pursuant to section 225.193(a), each participating state must 
establish and maintain within its appraiser certifying and licensing 
agency a registration and supervision program with the legal authority 
and mechanisms to, among other things, review and approve or deny an 
AMC's application for initial registration; require AMCs to submit 
reports, information, and documents; and report violations of 
appraisal-related laws, regulations, or orders, and disciplinary and 
enforcement actions to the Appraisal Subcommittee.
    Section 225.193(b) requires each participating state to require 
non-federally regulated AMCs to register with the state appraiser 
certifying and licensing agency.
    Section 225.195(c) requires a federally regulated AMC to report to 
the state or states in which it operates the information required to be 
submitted by the state pursuant to the Appraisal Subcommittee's 
policies regarding the determination of the AMC National Registry fee, 
including information relating to certain ownership limitations in the 
regulation.
    Section 225.196 requires that each participating state submit to 
the Appraisal Subcommittee the information required to be submitted by 
Appraisal Subcommittee regulations or guidance concerning AMCs that 
operate in the state.
    There are no required reporting forms associated with these 
information collections. Compliance with the information collections is 
mandatory for AMCs and voluntary for states. No other federal law 
mandates these disclosure requirements. This information is not 
available from any other source.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR HY-5 is authorized 
pursuant to section 1124(a) of the Financial Institutions Reform, 
Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA), which provides that the 
Agencies ``shall jointly, by rule, establish minimum requirements to be 
applied by a State in the registration of [AMCs].'' \1\ Section 1124(e) 
of the FIRREA requires that the Agencies ``jointly promulgate 
regulations for the reporting of the activities of [AMCs] to the 
[Appraisal Subcommittee of the Federal Financial Institutions 
Examination Council (ASC)] in determining the payment of the annual 
registry fee.'' \2\ In addition, pursuant to section 1109(a) of the 
FIRREA, each participating state with an appraiser certifying and 
licensing agency must transmit to the ASC ``[1] a roster listing 
individuals who have received a State certification or license . . . 
[2] reports on the issuance and renewal of licenses and certifications, 
sanctions, disciplinary actions, license and certification revocations, 
and license and certification suspensions on a timely basis to the 
national registry of the [ASC] . . . [3] including investigations 
initiated and disciplinary actions taken.'' \3\

    Section 1124 of the FIRREA does not compel a state to establish an 
AMC registration and supervision program, nor is a penalty imposed on a 
state that does not establish a regulatory structure for AMCs.\4\ 
Therefore, the FR HY-5 is voluntary for states. The FR HY-5 is 
mandatory for AMCs.

    Because the Federal Reserve will not collect this information, 
confidentiality issues would normally not arise. Because the records 
are retained at banking organizations, the Freedom of Information Act 
(FOIA) will only be implicated if the Board's examiners retain a copy 
of the record as part of an examination or supervision of a banking 
institution. In that case, the records would be exempt from disclosure 
under exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects examination materials 
from disclosure (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). Exemption 4 of the FOIA, which 
protects confidential financial information, and exemption 6 of the 
FOIA, which protects non-public personal information, may also be 
applicable (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4) and (b)(6)).
    Consultation outside the agency: The Board, the FDIC, the OCC, and 
the FHFA collaborated in reassessing and confirming their burden 
estimates and methodologies for this submission and discussed potential 
improvements and evaluations for future submissions.
