OMB Number: 3048–0031. Type of Review: Renewal. Need and Use: This form is used by an exporter (or broker acting on its behalf) in order to obtain approval for coverage of the repayment risk of export sales. The information received allows EXIM staff to make a determination of the eligibility of the applicant and the creditworthiness of one of the applicant’s foreign buyers for EXIM assistance under its programs. This is the application form for use by small U.S. businesses with limited export experience. Companies that are eligible to use the Express policy will need to answer approximately 20 questions and sign an acknowledgement of the certifications that appear on the reverse of the application form. This program does not provide discretionary credit authority to the U.S. exporter, and therefore the financial and credit information needs are minimized. Affected Public: This form affects entities involved in the export of U.S. goods and services. Annual Number of Respondents: 500. Estimated Time per Respondent: 0.25 hours. Annual Burden Hours: 125 hours. Frequency of Reporting of Use: Once per year. Government Expenses: Reviewing time per year: 1,000 hours. Average Wages per Hour: $42.50. Average Cost per Year: $42,500 (time*wages). Benefits and Overhead: 20%. Total Government Cost: $51,000. The applications listed below, as well as other related filings required by the Board, are available for immediate inspection at the Federal Reserve Bank indicated. The applications will also be available for inspection at the offices of the Board of Governors. Interested persons may express their views in writing on the standards enumerated in the BHC Act (12 U.S.C. 1842(c)). If the proposal also involves the acquisition of a nonbanking company, the review also includes whether the acquisition of the nonbanking company complies with the standards in section 4 of the BHC Act (12 U.S.C. 1843). Unless otherwise noted, nonbanking activities will be conducted throughout the United States. Unless otherwise noted, comments regarding each of these applications must be received at the Reserve Bank indicated or the offices of the Board of Governors not later than June 12, 2019. A.

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)).

    Report title: Reporting, Recordkeeping, and Disclosure Requirements 
Associated with Regulation NN.
    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.
    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 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)).
