Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from OMB for each collection of information that they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) to include agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of title 44 requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, the OCC is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. Title: Fair Credit Reporting: Affiliate Marketing. OMB Control No.: 1557–0230. Type of Review: Regular. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit. Estimated Number of Respondents: 97,723. Total Annual Burden: 10,281 hours. Description: Section 214 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACT Act),2 which added section 624 to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA),3 generally prohibits a person from using certain information received from an affiliate to solicit a consumer for marketing purposes, unless the consumer is given notice and an opportunity and simple method to opt out of such solicitations. Twelve CFR 1022.20–1022.27 require financial institutions to issue notices informing consumers about their rights under section 214 of the FACT Act. Consumers use the notices to decide if they want to receive solicitations for marketing purposes or opt out. Financial institutions use consumers’ opt-out responses to determine the permissibility of making a solicitation for marketing purposes. If a person receives certain consumer eligibility information from an affiliate, the person may not use that information to solicit the consumer about its products or services, unless the consumer is given notice and a simple method to opt out of such use of the information, and the consumer does not opt out. Exceptions include a person using eligibility information: (1) To make solicitations to a consumer with 1 Following the close of this notice’s 60-day comment period, the OCC will publish a second notice with a 30-day comment period. 2 Public Law 108–159, 117 Stat. 1952 (December 4, 2003). 3 15 U.S.C. 1681 et seq.

Upon expiration of the opt-out period, the consumer must be given a renewal notice and an opportunity to renew the opt-out before information received from an affiliate may be used to make solicitations to the consumer.

U.S.C. 552a (j)(2) and (k)(2). However, SIGPR will consider individual 
requests to determine whether information may be released. Thus, 
individuals seeking notification of and access to any record contained

request, and your signature must either be notarized or submitted under 
28 U.S.C. 1746, a law that permits statements to be made under penalty
