Agency form number: FR NN. OMB control number: 7100–0353. Frequency: Event generated. Respondents: Banking institutions. Estimated number of respondents: Reporting: 1; recordkeeping: 2; disclosure: 2. Estimated average hours per response: Reporting: 16; recordkeeping: 183; disclosure: 787. Estimated annual burden hours: 1,956. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:05 May 16, 2019 Jkt 247001 General description of report: Regulation NN includes certain reporting, recordkeeping, and disclosure requirements for banking institutions that elect to provide foreign currency exchange services to retail consumers. The regulation applies to state member banks, uninsured state-licensed branches of foreign banks, financial holding companies, bank holding companies, savings and loan holding companies, agreement corporations, and Edge Act corporations (collectively, ‘‘banking institutions’’) that engage in retail foreign exchange transactions. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The reporting, recordkeeping, and disclosure requirements in Regulation NN are authorized pursuant to section 2(c)(2)(E) of the Commodity Exchange Act (‘‘CEA’’), 7 U.S.C. 2(c)(2)(E). Section 2(c)(2)(E) of the CEA prohibits a United States financial institution and its related persons under the supervision of a Federal regulatory agency, such as the Board, from offering or entering into certain types of foreign exchange transactions with retail customers except pursuant to a rule or regulation prescribed by the appropriate Federal regulatory agency allowing the transaction under such terms and conditions as the Federal regulatory agency shall prescribe. Regulation NN’s reporting requirement (12 CFR 240.4), recordkeeping requirements (12 CFR 240.7, 240.9(b)(2), and 240.13(a)) and disclosure requirements (240.5(a), 240.6, 240.7, 240.9(b)(2), 240.10, 240.13(a) & (c)–(d), 240.15, and 240.16(a) and (b)) are mandatory for banking institutions that engage in retail foreign exchange transactions. The reporting requirement under section 240.4 of Regulation NN requires a banking institution to provide a prior written notice to the Board that includes information concerning customer due diligence; the policies and procedures for haircuts to be applied to noncash margin; information concerning new product approvals; and information on addressing conflicts of interest. The disclosure of this information is reasonably likely to result in substantial competitive harm to the banking institution, and therefore, may be kept confidential under exemption (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act (‘‘FOIA’’), which protects ‘‘trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained from a person [that is] privileged or confidential’’ (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). In addition, the prior written notice must also include a resolution of the banking institution’s board of directors certifying that the institution PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22495 has written policies, procedures, and risk measurement and management systems and controls in place to ensure retail foreign exchange transactions are conducted in a safe and sound manner and in compliance with Regulation NN. Generally, this resolution by the board of directors would not be accorded confidential treatment. If confidential treatment is requested by a banking institution, the Board will review the request to determine if confidential treatment is appropriate. The recordkeeping and disclosures required under sections 240.5(a), 240.6, 240.7, 240.9(b)(2), 240.10, 240.13(a) & (c)–(d), 240.15, and 240.16(a) and (b) of Regulation NN generally are not submitted to the Board. Accordingly, no confidentiality issues will normally arise under the FOIA. In the event such records or disclosures are obtained by the Federal Reserve through the examination or enforcement process, such information may be kept confidential under exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects information contained in or related to an examination of a financial institution (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, May 14, 2019. Michele Taylor Fennell, Assistant Secretary of the Board.
