Assessment Template for OCC-Regulated Entities.

    Description: This information collection covers standards, pursuant 
to which certain entities regulated by the OCC voluntarily self-assess 
their diversity policies and practices, and a template to assist with 
the self-assessment. The template (1) asks for general information 
about a respondent; (2) includes questions about certain standards and

specific entity or individual or disclose confidential business 
information. Finally, if an OCC-regulated entity submits confidential 
commercial information that is both customarily and actually treated as 
private by the entity, the entity can designate the information as 
such, in which case the OCC will treat the self-assessment information 
as private to the extent permitted by law, including the Freedom of 
Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552, et seq.
