Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, Without Revision, the Following Information Collection Report title: Recordkeeping and Disclosure Requirements Associated with Regulation R. Agency form number: FR R. OMB control number: 7100–0316. Frequency: As needed. Respondents: ‘‘Banks,’’ as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act), that qualify for the exemptions from the Exchange Act definition of ‘‘broker.’’ Estimated number of respondents: Section 701, disclosures to customers: 1,500, disclosures to brokers: 1,500; section 723, recordkeeping: 75; section 741, disclosures to customers: 750. Estimated average hours per response: Section 701, disclosures to customers: 0.08333, disclosures to brokers: 0.25; section 723, recordkeeping: 0.25; section 741, disclosures to customers: 0.08333. Estimated annual burden hours: Section 701, disclosures to customers: 12,500, disclosures to brokers: 375; section 723, recordkeeping: 188; section 741, disclosures to customers: 62,500. General description of report: The Board’s Regulation R, 12 CFR part 218, implements certain exceptions for banks from the definition of ‘‘broker’’ under section 3(a)(4) of the Exchange Act. The Exchange Act defines ‘‘banks’’ to include banking institutions organized in the United States, including members of the Federal Reserve System, federal savings associations, and other commercial banks, savings associations, and nondepository trust companies that are organized under the laws of a state or the United States and subject to supervision and examination by state or federal authorities having supervision over banks and savings associations. Sections 701, 723, and 741 of Regulation R contain certain customer and counterparty disclosure requirements and certain transactional recordkeeping provisions for banks that utilize these exceptions. PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68455 Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR R is authorized pursuant to sections 3(a)(4)(F) and 3(b) of the Exchange Act,1 which, among other things, require the Board and the Security Exchange Commission (SEC) to jointly adopt rules to implement the bank exceptions to the definition of ‘‘broker’’ under the Exchange Act.2 Banks seeking the exception from the definition of ‘‘broker’’ under the Exchange Act must comply with the requirements of FR R. The obligation, therefore, is required to obtain a benefit. Because these records and disclosures would be maintained at each banking organization, the Freedom of Information Act (‘‘FOIA’’) would only be implicated if the Board obtained such records as part of the examination or supervision of a banking organization. In the event the records are obtained by the Board as part of an examination or supervision of a financial institution, this information is considered confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects information contained in ‘‘examination, operating, or condition reports’’ obtained in the bank supervisory process.3 In addition, the information may also be kept confidential under exemption 4 for the FOIA, which protects commercial or financial information obtained from a person that is privileged or confidential.4 Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, December 11, 2019.
