Regarding information submitted pursuant to the FR 4010, FR 4011, FR 4017, and FR 4019, a firm may request confidential treatment under the Board’s Rules Regarding Availability of Information (12 CFR 261.15).

Information submitted pursuant to the FR 4012 may be considered confidential under FOIA exemption 4 and FOIA exemption 8, which protects from disclosure information related to the supervision or examination of a regulated financial institution (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). Because the FR 4023 is a recordkeeping requirement, the FOIA would only be implicated if the Board’s examiners retained a copy of the record as part of the supervision of a banking institution. Accordingly, such record may be exempt from disclosure under FOIA exemption 8. 1 12 U.S.C. 1843(l). For FBOs, the FR 4010 is authorized pursuant to section 4(l) of the BHC Act (12 U.S.C. 1843(l)), in conjunction with section 8 of the International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3106(a)). 2 12 U.S.C 1467a(c)(2)(H). 3 12 U.S.C. 1843(j)–(k). 4 12 U.S.C. 1844(b).
