Comptroller of the Currency July 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Assessment of Fees
Document Number: E6-11804
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-25
Agency: Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury, Comptroller of the Currency
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is adopting in final form, without change, an interim final rule that amended our regulations at 12 CFR part 8 concerning the timing of payments of OCC assessments. The interim rule replaced the process used to determine the amount of assessment due to the OCC. Previously, national banks were required to make the initial calculation of the amount due to the OCC. Under the interim rule, the OCC, rather than each national bank, calculates the semiannual assessment based on the most recent Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report). The assessment is due by March 31 and September 30 of each year, two months later than under the previous process. Thus, payments that would have been due on January 31 of each year are instead due on March 31, and payments that would have been due on July 31 are due on September 30 of each year. The OCC will notify each national bank of the amount of its semiannual assessment and automatically deduct that amount from each bank's designated account on the payment due date. The interim rule changed the assessment collection process only; it did not make any changes to the method for calculating assessments due from national banks.

The OCC, Board, FDIC, OTS, NCUA and FTC (the Agencies) request comment on a proposal that would implement sections 114 and 315 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACT Act). As required by section 114, the Agencies are jointly proposing guidelines for financial institutions and creditors identifying patterns, practices, and specific forms of activity, that indicate the possible existence of identity theft. The Agencies also are proposing joint regulations requiring each financial institution and creditor to establish reasonable policies and procedures for implementing the guidelines, including a provision requiring credit and debit card issuers to assess the validity of a request for a change of address under certain circumstances. In addition, the Agencies are proposing joint regulations under section 315 that provide guidance regarding reasonable policies and procedures that a user of consumer reports must employ when such a user receives a notice of address discrepancy from a consumer reporting agency.

On May 8, 2006, the agencies, under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), published a joint notice, with a request for comment, announcing the effect of the Federal Deposit Insurance Reform Act on the reporting of certain deposit-related data in the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report; FFIEC 031 and 041). The notice described regulatory reporting revisions being made to the Call Report effective June 30, 2006, primarily in response to an increase in the deposit insurance coverage for certain retirement plan deposits from $100,000 to $250,000. After considering the comments received on the agencies' notice, the agencies are providing additional information concerning the implementation of the regulatory reporting changes related to retirement plan deposits eligible for $250,000 in insurance coverage.
