The OCC, Board, and the FDIC (collectively, the Agencies) request comment on proposed guidance on leveraged lending (proposed guidance). The proposed guidance outlines high-level principles related to safe and sound leveraged lending activities, including underwriting considerations, assessing and documenting enterprise value, risk management expectations for credits awaiting distribution, stress testing expectations and portfolio management, and risk management expectations. This proposed guidance would apply to all Federal Reserve-supervised, FDIC-supervised, and OCC-supervised financial institutions substantively engaged in leveraged lending activities. The number of community banking organizations with substantial exposure to leveraged lending is very small; therefore the Agencies generally expect that community banking organizations largely would be unaffected by this guidance.

On June 15, 1984, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) delegated to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) its approval authority under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.16, to approve of and assign OMB control numbers to collection of information requests and requirements conducted or sponsored by the Board under conditions set forth in 5 CFR 1320 Appendix A.1.

In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (the ``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. On November 23, 2011, the Board, under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) and on behalf of the agencies, published a notice in the Federal Register (76 FR 72410) requesting public comment on the extension, with revision, of the Report of Assets and Liabilities of U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks (FFIEC 002) and the Report of Assets and Liabilities of a Non-U.S. Branch that is Managed or Controlled by a U.S. Branch or Agency of a Foreign (Non-U.S.) Bank (FFIEC 002S), which are currently approved information collections. The comment period for this notice expired on January 23, 2012. No comments were received on the proposed revisions. However, the agencies received eight comments on proposed revisions to the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report) (FFIEC 031 and 041; OMB No. 7100-0036). Inasmuch as the Call Report revisions parallel certain of the proposed revisions to the FFIEC 002, these comments are being taken into consideration for the FFIEC 002 proposal. After consideration of these comments, the FFIEC and the agencies will proceed with the reporting change to Schedule RAL, Assets and Liabilities, proposed for implementation as of June 30, 2012. With respect to the new loan origination activity schedule that had been proposed to be added to the FFIEC 002, the FFIEC and the agencies are continuing to evaluate this proposed schedule in light of the comments received on the comparable change proposed to the Call Report. The FFIEC's and the agencies' decisions regarding this proposed schedule will be the subject of a separate Federal Register notice, and any resulting new reporting requirements will not take effect before the September 30, 2012, report date.
