Background. On June 4, 2012, the Board published in the Federal Register, a notice of final approval of a proposed information collection by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) under OMB delegated authority, per 5 CFR 1320.16 (OMB Regulations on Controlling Paperwork Burdens on the Public). The notice requested public comment for 30 days to revise, without extension, Capital Assessments and Stress Testing information collection (FR Y- 14A/Q/M). The comment period for this information collection notice expires on July 5, 2012. Due to the range and complexity of the issues addressed in the information collection notice, the Board has determined that an extension of the end of the public comment period for an additional 30 days is appropriate. This action will allow interested persons additional time to analyze the proposed revisions and prepare their comments.

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. Board-approved collections of information are incorporated into the official OMB inventory of currently approved collections of information. Copies of the Paperwork Reduction Act Submission, supporting statements and approved collection of information instruments are placed into OMB's public docket files. The Federal Reserve may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

Type: Rule
Date: 2012-06-04
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is adopting this final rule to implement section 618 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act'' or ``Act''), which permits nonbank companies that own at least one registered securities broker or dealer, and that are required by a foreign regulator or provision of foreign law to be subject to comprehensive consolidated supervision, to register with the Board and subject themselves to supervision by the Board. The final rule outlines the requirements that a securities holding company must satisfy to make an effective election, including filing the appropriate form with the responsible Reserve Bank, providing all additional required information, and satisfying the statutory waiting period of 45 days or such shorter period the Board determines appropriate.
