OMB Control No.: 1557–0319. Description: Section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act 2 (Dodd-Frank Act) requires certain financial companies, including national banks and federal savings associations, to conduct annual stress tests 3 and requires the primary financial regulatory agency 4 of those financial companies to issue regulations implementing the stress test requirements.5 Under section 165(i)(2), a covered institution is required to submit to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) and to its primary financial regulatory agency a report at such time, in such form, and containing such information as the primary financial regulatory agency may require.6 On October 9, 2012, the OCC published in the Federal Register a final rule implementing the section 165(i)(2) annual stress test requirement.7 This rule describes the reports and information collections required to meet the reporting requirements under section 165(i)(2). These information collections will be given confidential treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)) to the extent permitted by law. In 2012, the OCC first implemented the reporting templates referenced in the final rule. See 77 FR 49485 (August 16, 2012) and 77 FR 66663 (November 6, 2012). The OCC uses the data collected to assess the reasonableness of the stress test results of covered institutions and to provide forwardlooking information to the OCC regarding a covered institution’s capital adequacy. The OCC also may use the 2 Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376, July 2010. 3 12 U.S.C. 5365(i)(2)(A). 4 12 U.S.C. 5301(12). 5 12 U.S.C. 5365(i)(2)(C). 6 12 U.S.C. 5365(i)(2)(B). 7 77 FR 61238 (October 9, 2012) (codified at 12 CFR part 46).

The stress test results are expected to support ongoing improvement in a covered institution’s stress testing practices with respect to its internal assessments of capital adequacy and overall capital planning. The OCC recognizes that many covered institutions with total consolidated assets of $250 billion or more are required to submit reports using Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) reporting form FR Y–14A.8 The OCC also recognizes the Board has proposed and implemented modifications to the FR Y–14A and, to the extent practical, the OCC will keep its reporting requirements consistent with the Board’s FR Y–14A in order to minimize burden on covered institutions.9 Therefore, the OCC is proposing to revise its reporting requirements to mirror the Board’s FR Y–14A for covered institutions with total consolidated assets of $250 billion or more. The OCC’s proposed changes include updates to various schedules to reflect the adoption of the tailoring framework used to determine the applicability of regulatory capital requirements to large U.S. banking organizations.10 Other changes include removing the worksheet for reporting advanced approaches risk-weighted assets and the worksheet for reporting pre-provision net revenue (PPNR) metrics. as well as technical changes to various individual data items. The proposed changes to the OCC’s reporting templates do not include data items in the FR Y–14A associated with several capital buffers related ratios, such as the Board’s stress capital buffer requirement adopted in 2020.11 The proposal would remove the OCC Supplemental Schedule, which collects information not collected by the FR Y–14A. Type of Review: Revision. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 8. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 4,212 hours.

financial companies, including national banks and federal savings 
associations, to conduct annual stress tests \3\ and requires the

form, and containing such information as the primary financial

    On October 9, 2012, the OCC published in the Federal Register a 
final rule implementing the section 165(i)(2) annual stress test 
requirement.\7\ This rule describes the reports and information 
collections required to meet the reporting requirements under section 
165(i)(2). These information collections will be given confidential 
treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)) to the extent permitted by law.

    In 2012, the OCC first implemented the reporting templates 
referenced in the final rule. See 77 FR 49485 (August 16, 2012) and 77 
FR 66663 (November 6, 2012). The OCC uses the data collected to assess 
the reasonableness of the stress test results of covered institutions 
and to provide forward-looking information to the OCC regarding a 
covered institution's capital adequacy. The OCC also may use the 
results of the stress tests to determine whether additional analytical 
techniques and exercises could be appropriate to identify, measure, and 
monitor risks at the covered institution. The stress test results are 
expected to support ongoing improvement in a covered institution's 
stress testing practices with respect to its internal assessments of 
capital adequacy and overall capital planning.
    The OCC recognizes that many covered institutions with total 
consolidated assets of $250 billion or more are required to submit 
reports using Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) 
reporting form FR Y-14A.\8\ The OCC also recognizes the Board has 
proposed and implemented modifications to the FR Y-14A and, to the 
extent practical, the OCC will keep its reporting requirements 
consistent with the Board's FR Y-14A in order to minimize burden on 
covered institutions.\9\ Therefore, the OCC is proposing to revise its 
reporting requirements to mirror the Board's FR Y-14A for covered 
institutions with total consolidated assets of $250 billion or more.

    The OCC's proposed changes include updates to various schedules to 
reflect the adoption of the tailoring framework used to determine the 
applicability of regulatory capital requirements to large U.S. banking 
organizations.\10\ Other changes include removing the worksheet for 
reporting advanced approaches risk-weighted assets and the worksheet 
for reporting pre-provision net revenue (PPNR) metrics. as well as 
technical changes to various individual data items. The proposed 
changes to the OCC's reporting templates do not include data items in 
the FR Y-14A associated with several capital buffers related ratios, 
such as the Board's stress capital buffer requirement adopted in 
2020.\11\ The proposal would remove the OCC Supplemental Schedule, 
which collects information not collected by the FR Y-14A.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 4,212 hours.
    The OCC believes that the systems covered institutions use to 
prepare the FR Y-14 reporting templates to submit to the Board will 
also be used to prepare the reporting templates described in this 
notice. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be 
summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments 
will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:
    (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper performance of the functions of the OCC, including whether the 
information has practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of the OCC's estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
