Download as PDF 45494 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 168 / Thursday, August 29, 2019 / Notices khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES by insured state nonmember banks that are government securities brokers or dealers to notify the FDIC that an associated person is no longer associated with the government securities broker or dealer function of the bank. These revisions incur no change in the method or substance of any information collections under OMB control number 3064–0093 and there is no subsequent change in burden. Legal authorization and confidentiality: Forms G–FIN and G– FINW are authorized under 15 U.S.C. 78o–5(a)(l)(B)(i), which requires a financial institution that is a broker or dealer of government securities to submit a written notice advising its appropriate regulatory agency (ARA) that it is a government securities broker or a government securities dealer or that it has ceased to act as such. The Act also directs the Board, in consultation with the other ARAs (the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency),3 as well as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), to prescribe the form of and the information collected in these notices (15 U.S.C. 78o–5(a)(l)(B)(ii)). Further support for the creation and collection of these notices by the Board is found in the Treasury regulations, authorized by 15 U.S.C. 78o–5(b)(l), which instruct that the Form G–FIN and Form G–FINW are promulgated by the Board and that such forms are to be used by non-exempt 4 financial institutions to notify the ARA of their status as government securities brokers or dealers or the termination of such status.5 Section 15C of the Act, 15 U.S.C. 78o– 5(b)(1)(C), also instructs the Secretary of the Treasury to promulgate recordkeeping requirements regarding the forms and records to be retained by government securities brokers and dealers and to specify the time period for which such records shall be preserved. Accordingly, the recordkeeping requirement associated with these forms is contained in 17 CFR 404.4, which requires state member banks and uninsured state branches or state agencies of foreign banks, as well 3 A copy of the form filed with each ARA is also made available by the ARA to the SEC under the Act (15 U.S.C. 78o–5(a)(1)(B)(iii)). 4 The Act permits the Secretary of the Treasury to exempt certain government securities brokers or dealers, 15 U.S.C. 78o–5(a)(5), and the Secretary of the Treasury has promulgated regulations exempting certain types of firms. See 17 CFR part 401. 5 See 17 CFR 400.1(d), 449.1, and 449.2; see also 17 CFR 400.5(b); requiring that any amendments or corrections to the notice of status of government securities broker or dealer be filed by the financial institution on Form G–FIN within 30 days). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Aug 28, 2019 Jkt 247001 as other institutions, to retain these forms for three years after the financial institution notifies its ARA that it has ceased to function as a government securities broker or dealer. Although Treasury’s recordkeeping requirement does not explicitly apply to foreign banks, to Edge corporations, or to commercial lending companies that are owned or controlled by foreign banks, the Board has the authority to ‘‘issue such rules and regulations with respect to transactions in government securities as may be necessary to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices and to promote just and equitable principles of trade.’’ 15 U.S.C. 78o–5(b)(3)(A). Imposing a recordkeeping requirement on foreign banks, Edge corporations, and commercial lending companies owned or controlled by foreign banks is necessary for the public interest and protection of investors in order to ensure that the proper notification has been provided when these institutions are transacting in government securities (15 U.S.C. 78o–5(a)(1)(B)). In addition, the Board is authorized to impose a recordkeeping requirement on foreign banking organizations 6 (12 U.S.C. 3108), on Edge corporations (12 U.S.C. 625), and on commercial lending companies that are owned or controlled by foreign banks (12 U.S.C. 3106, as applied through 12 U.S.C. 1844(c)). The obligation to file the Form G–FIN and Form G–FINW with the Board, and the obligation for the government securities broker or dealer to retain a copy of the Form G–FIN and Form G– FINW, is mandatory for those financial institutions for which the Board serves as the ARA, unless the financial institution is exempt from the reporting requirement under Treasury’s regulations. The filing of these forms and the records retention period is event-generated. Under the Act, each ARA is instructed to make these forms available to the SEC, and the SEC is instructed to make the notices available to the public (15 U.S.C. 78o–5(a)(l)(B)(iii)). Thus, the information collected on Form G–FIN and Form G–FINW is ordinarily not treated as confidential.7 However, given 6 A foreign banking organization is a foreign bank that operates a branch, agency, or commercial lending company subsidiary in the United States; controls a bank in the United States; or controls an Edge corporation acquired after March 5, 1987; and any company of which the foreign bank is a subsidiary. 7 The Board’s Regulation H provides that any person filing any statement, report, or document under the Act may submit written objection to the public disclosure of the information when such information is filed in accordance with the procedures provided in 12 CFR 208.36(d). In PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that Item 6 of Form G–FIN instructs the filer to attach copies of the confidential Form G–FIN–4, or if applicable, to attach copies of any previously filed confidential Form MSD–4 or confidential Form U–4, these attachments will be treated as confidential under exemptions 4 and/or 6 of the FOIA. Consultation outside the agency: The Board consulted with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of Currency, and the Securities Exchange Commission in reviewing the form and instructions for this submission.
