Document Number: E7-6473
Type: Rule

Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board of Governors is revising its 1980 interpretation of Regulation D (Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions) setting forth criteria for the ``bankers' bank'' exemption from reserve requirements. The interpretation sets forth the standards that the Board uses in applying the statutory and regulatory requirements for the bankers' banks exemption to specific institutions. The revised interpretation specifies that the Board may determine, on a case-by- case basis, whether certain entities not already expressly listed in the interpretation may become customers to a limited extent of bankers' banks that remain exempt from reserve requirements.

The OCC, Board, FDIC and OTS (collectively, the Banking Agencies), as part of their continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invite the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on the proposed extension, with revision, of the interagency Transfer Agent and Amendment Form, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. OTS seeks to implement an amendment to section 3(a)(34) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Act), pursuant to a provision of the Financial Services Regulatory Relief Act of 2006 (FSRRA), enacted on October 13, 2006. This implementation would institute the use of the TA-1 for savings associations intending to engage in transfer agent activities. The Banking Agencies may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number.
