In accordance with the requirements of the PRA (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (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 OMB control number. On April 18, 2016, the agencies, under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), published a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 22702) to request public comment on a proposal to extend, with revision, the Regulatory Capital Reporting for Institutions Subject to the Advanced Capital Adequacy Framework (FFIEC 101), which is a currently approved information collection. On April 27, 2016, the agencies published a correction of the April 18 notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 24940). The agencies proposed to collect supplementary leverage ratio (SLR) data in new SLR Tables 1 and 2 of FFIEC 101 Schedule A from all banking organizations subject to the advanced approaches risk-based capital rule (generally, banking organizations with $250 billion or more in total consolidated assets or $10 billion or more in on-balance sheet foreign exposures) (advanced approaches banking organizations), unless the advanced approaches banking organization is (i) a consolidated subsidiary of a bank holding company (BHC), savings and loan holding company (SLHC), or depository institution that is subject to the disclosure requirements in Table 13 of section 173 of the advanced approaches risk-based capital rule (advanced approaches rule), or (ii) a subsidiary of a non-U.S. banking organization that is subject to comparable public disclosure requirements in its home jurisdiction. Advanced approaches banking organizations would begin reporting the proposed SLR data items in FFIEC 101 Schedule A, SLR Tables 1 and 2, effective with the September 30, 2016, reporting date. Separately, the proposed collection of SLR data in SLR Tables 1 and 2 of FFIEC 101 Schedule A would apply to any U.S. intermediate holding companies (IHCs) formed or designated for purposes of compliance with the Board's Regulation YY (12 CFR 252.153) that are advanced approaches banking organizations, effective with the March 31, 2018, reporting date (advanced approaches IHC). Any subsidiary BHC controlled by a foreign banking organization (FBO) that was subject to the SLR requirements prior to the formation of an IHC would complete FFIEC 101 Schedule A, SLR Tables 1 and 2, through the December 31, 2017, reporting date. In addition, the agencies proposed that an advanced approaches banking organization should provide its Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) on the cover page of the report beginning September 30, 2016, only if the organization already has an LEI. The comment period for this proposal expired on June 27, 2016. The agencies did not receive any comments addressing the proposed changes and are now submitting requests to OMB for review and approval of the extension, with revision, of the FFIEC 101. As had been proposed, these reporting changes would take effect as of the September 30, 2016, or the March 31, 2018, report date, as applicable.
