Regulation C requires depository institutions that meet its asset-size threshold to maintain data about home loan applications (the type of loan requested, the purpose of the loan, whether the loan was approved, and the type of purchaser if the loan was later sold), to update the information quarterly, and to report the information annually. The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act and Regulation C now come under the authority of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Pursuant to Regulation C, insured state-nonmember banks supervised by the FDIC with assets over a certain dollar threshold must collect, record, and report data about home loan applications.3 For 2017 transactions, 1,865 FDIC-supervised institutions reported under HMDA; 1,217 of these institutions were small entities.4 5 For transactions beginning in 2018, the set of data fields to be reported under HMDA was expanded. Institutions that meet certain criteria are partially exempt from reporting certain data fields.6 To estimate the number of Full and Partial filers for 2018, subject matter experts (SMEs) in the Division of Consumer Protection (DCP) examined 2016 and 2017 data collected under HMDA, as well as preliminary data for 2018. Results from this analysis indicate that for 2018 data, there were roughly 650 and 1,200 respondents to the Full and Partial reporting requirements of this information collection, respectively. The frequency of responses was estimated by taking the total number of Full and Partial disclosure filings and dividing that number by the number of respondents.7 The frequency of response is ‘on occasion’, which remains unchanged from the 2016 ICR.8 Due to an increase in the number of required items, the estimated time per response for the Full Data loan disclosure form will increase from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. The estimated time per response for the Partial Data loan disclosure form will remain unchanged at 5 minutes. For both the Full and Partial loan disclosure, the estimated burden is divided equally among reporting and recordkeeping. 2. Title: External Audits. OMB Control Number: 3064–0113. Form Number: None. Affected Public: All insured financial institutions with total assets of $500 million or more and other insured financial institutions with total assets of less than $500 million that voluntarily choose to comply.

Following these regulations, the FDIC uses a covered entity’s affiliated and acquired assets, averaged over the preceding four quarters, to determine whether the covered entity is ‘‘small’’ for the purposes of RFA. 5 Call Report, December 31, 2017. 6 Interpretive and Procedural Rule, Partial Exemptions from the Requirements of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act under the Economic PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Annually Annually Annually Annually Annually Annually Annually Annually ............... ............... ............... ............... ............... ............... ............... ............... 4,200 4,200 84 84 3.5 3.5 1.75 1.75 .............................. 8,578.5 Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (Regulation C), 83 FR 45325 https:// www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/09/07/ 2018-19244/partial-exemptions-from-therequirements-of-the-home-mortgage-disclosure-actunder-the-economic. 7 910,000 Full Data disclosures ÷ 650 respondents = 1,400 disclosures per respondent. 240,000 Partial Data disclosures ÷ 1,200 respondents = 200 disclosures per respondent. 8 See https://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/ PRAViewICR?ref_nbr=20151203064-006.

Reporting ............

The information collected pursuant to the policy statement allows the FDIC to evaluate, among other things, whether such investors (and their related interests) could negatively impact the Deposit Insurance Fund, increase resolution costs, or operate in a manner that conflict with statutory safety and soundness principles and compliance requirements. There were eight (8) bank failures in 2015, five (5) failures in 2016, eight (8) failures in 2017, and zero bank failures in 2018 and one in the first eight months of 2019. This is an average of fewer than 5 bank failures per year. Based on this recent data, the declining trend in failures, and the improvement in bank financial conditions, the FDIC believes that it is appropriate to reduce the expected number of respondents for Sections D and I from 10 per year to 3 while keeping the expected number of respondents at 3 per year for Section E. The estimated total number of hours per respondent, per year will remain Frequency of response Total estimated annual burden (hours) Information collection (IC) description unchanged at 48 hours. The 48 hours is comprised of 12 monthly reports of two hours each for Section D, four quarterly reports of two hours each for Section E, and four quarterly reports of four hours each for Section I. Thus the total estimated annual burden for the ICR is 144 hours as reflected in the table above This represents a reduction of 280 hours from the 2016 estimate of 424 hours. 4.

To enable an institution and its supervisor to evaluate the liquidity risk exposure of an institution’s individual business lines and for the institution as a whole, the Interagency Policy Statement on Funding and Liquidity Risk Management (Interagency Statement) summarizes principles of sound liquidity risk management and advocates the establishment of policies and procedures that consider liquidity costs, benefits, and risks in strategic planning. In addition, the Interagency Statement encourages the use of liquidity risk reports that provide detailed and aggregate information on items such as cash flow gaps, cash flow projections, assumptions used in cash flow projections, asset and funding concentrations, funding availability, and early warning or risk indicators.

Information collection (IC) description Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours .. General Description of Collection: The Interagency Guidance on Leveraged Lending (Guidance) outlines for agencysupervised institutions high level principles related to safe-and sound leveraged lending activities, including underwriting considerations, assessing and documenting enterprise value, risk management expectations for credits awaiting distribution, stress testing expectations, pipeline portfolio management, and risk management expectations for exposures held by the institution. This Guidance provides information to all financial institutions supervised by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the FDIC (the Agencies) that engage in leveraged lending activities. The number of community banks with substantial involvement in leveraged lending is small; therefore, the Agencies generally expect community banks to be largely unaffected by this information collection. There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. The overall reduction in burden hours is the result of economic fluctuation. In particular, the number of respondents has decreased while the hours per response and frequency of responses have remained the same. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Request for Comment Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

    General Description of Collection: The Board of Governors of the 
Federal Reserve System promulgated Regulation C, 12 CFR part 203, to 
implement the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), 12 U.S.C. 2801-2810. 
Regulation C requires depository institutions that meet its asset-size 
threshold to maintain data about home loan applications (the type of 
loan requested, the purpose of the loan, whether the loan was approved, 
and the type of purchaser if the loan was later sold), to update the 
information quarterly, and to report the information annually. The Home 
Mortgage Disclosure Act and Regulation C now come under the authority 
of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The one-hour difference in the Total Estimated Annual Burden 
Hours is due to rounding.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to Regulation C, insured state-nonmember banks supervised 
by the FDIC with assets over a certain dollar threshold must collect, 
record, and report data about home loan applications.\3\ For 2017 
transactions, 1,865 FDIC-supervised institutions reported under HMDA; 
1,217 of these institutions were small entities.4 5 For 
transactions beginning in 2018, the set of data fields to be reported 
under HMDA was expanded. Institutions that meet certain criteria are 
partially exempt from reporting certain data fields.\6\ To estimate the 
number of Full and Partial filers for 2018, subject matter experts 
(SMEs) in the Division of Consumer Protection (DCP) examined 2016 and 
2017 data collected under HMDA, as well as preliminary data for 2018. 
Results from this analysis indicate that for 2018 data, there were 
roughly 650 and 1,200 respondents to the Full and Partial reporting 
requirements of this information collection, respectively. The 
frequency of responses was estimated by taking the total number of Full 
and Partial disclosure filings and dividing that number by the number 
of respondents.\7\

https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/CFR-2018-title12-vol8/pdf/CFR-2018-title12-vol8-part1003-appA.pdf.
    \4\ The SBA defines a small banking organization as having $550 
million or less in assets, where ``a financial institution's assets 
are determined by averaging the assets reported on its four 
quarterly financial statements for the preceding year.'' See 13 CFR 
121.201 (as amended, effective December 2, 2014). ``SBA counts the 
receipts, employees, or other measure of size of the concern whose 
size is at issue and all of its domestic and foreign affiliates.'' 
See 13 CFR 121.103. Following these regulations, the FDIC uses a 
covered entity's affiliated and acquired assets, averaged over the 
preceding four quarters, to determine whether the covered entity is 
``small'' for the purposes of RFA.

the Requirements of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act under the 
Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act 
(Regulation C), 83 FR 45325 https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/09/07/2018-19244/partial-exemptions-from-the-requirements-of-the-home-mortgage-disclosure-act-under-the-economic.
    \7\ 910,000 Full Data disclosures / 650 respondents = 1,400 
disclosures per respondent.
    240,000 Partial Data disclosures / 1,200 respondents = 200 
disclosures per respondent.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The frequency of response is `on occasion', which remains unchanged 
from the 2016 ICR.\8\ Due to an increase in the number of required 
items, the estimated time per response for the Full Data loan 
disclosure form will increase from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. The 
estimated time per response for the Partial Data loan disclosure form 
will remain unchanged at 5 minutes. For both the Full and Partial loan 
disclosure, the estimated burden is divided equally among reporting and 
recordkeeping.

    General Description of Collection: The FDIC's policy statement on 
Qualifications for Failed Bank Acquisitions provides guidance to 
private capital investors interested in acquiring or investing in 
failed insured depository institutions regarding the terms and 
conditions for such investments or acquisitions. The information 
collected pursuant to the policy statement allows the FDIC to evaluate, 
among other things, whether such investors (and their related 
interests) could negatively impact the Deposit Insurance Fund, increase 
resolution costs, or operate in a manner that conflict with statutory 
safety and soundness principles and compliance requirements.
    There were eight (8) bank failures in 2015, five (5) failures in 
2016, eight (8) failures in 2017, and zero bank failures in 2018 and 
one in the first eight months of 2019. This is an average of fewer than 
5 bank failures per year. Based on this recent data, the declining 
trend in failures, and the improvement in bank financial conditions, 
the FDIC believes that it is appropriate to reduce the expected number 
of respondents for Sections D and I from 10 per year to 3 while keeping 
the expected number of respondents at 3 per year for Section E.
    The estimated total number of hours per respondent, per year will 
remain unchanged at 48 hours. The 48 hours is comprised of 12 monthly 
reports of two hours each for Section D, four quarterly reports of two 
hours each for Section E, and four quarterly reports of four hours each 
for Section I. Thus the total estimated annual burden for the ICR is 
144 hours as reflected in the table above This represents a reduction 
of 280 hours from the 2016 estimate of 424 hours.

    General Description of Collection: The information collection 
includes reporting and recordkeeping requirements related to sound risk 
management principles applicable to insured depository institutions. To 
enable an institution and its supervisor to evaluate the liquidity risk 
exposure of an institution's individual business lines and for the 
institution as a whole, the Interagency Policy Statement on Funding and 
Liquidity Risk Management (Interagency Statement) summarizes principles 
of sound liquidity risk management and advocates the establishment of 
policies and procedures that consider liquidity costs, benefits, and 
risks in strategic planning. In addition, the Interagency Statement 
encourages the use of liquidity risk reports that provide detailed and 
aggregate information on items such as cash flow gaps, cash flow 
projections, assumptions used in cash flow projections, asset and 
funding concentrations, funding availability, and early warning or risk 
indicators. This is intended to enable management to assess an 
institution's sensitivity to changes in market conditions, the 
institution's financial performance, and other important risk factors.

    General Description of Collection: The Interagency Guidance on 
Leveraged Lending (Guidance) outlines for agency-supervised 
institutions high level principles related to safe-and sound leveraged 
lending activities, including underwriting considerations, assessing 
and documenting enterprise value, risk management expectations for 
credits awaiting distribution, stress testing expectations, pipeline 
portfolio management, and risk management expectations for exposures 
held by the institution.
    This Guidance provides information to all financial institutions 
supervised by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board 
of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the FDIC (the Agencies) 
that engage in leveraged lending activities. The number of community 
banks with substantial involvement in leveraged lending is small; 
therefore, the Agencies generally expect community banks to be largely 
unaffected by this information collection. There is no change in the 
method or substance of the collection. The overall reduction in burden 
hours is the result of economic fluctuation. In particular, the number 
of respondents has decreased while the hours per response and frequency 
of responses have remained the same.

Request for Comment

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information 
is necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's functions, 
including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimates of the burden of the information collection, 
including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) 
ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents, including through the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All 
comments will become a matter of public record.
