If the due date of the report falls on a weekend or holiday, the Form SLT report should be submitted the following business day. These mandatory reporting requirements will be phased in during 2011. In 2011, the Form SLT will be required to be submitted quarterly as of September 30 and December 30, with the mandatory monthly reporting on Form SLT beginning with the report as of January 31, 2012. Paperwork Reduction Act Notice: This data collection has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act and assigned control number 1505-0235.

Agency: Farm Credit Administration, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury, Federal Housing Finance Agency, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Comptroller of the Currency
On May 11, 2011, the OCC, Board, FDIC, FCA, and FHFA (collectively, the Agencies) published in the Federal Register a joint notice of proposed rulemaking for public comment to establish minimum margin and capital requirements for registered swap dealers, major swap participants, security-based swap dealers, and major security-based swap participants for which one of the Agencies is the prudential regulator (the proposed rule). Due to the complexity of the rulemaking, to allow parties more time to consider the impact of the proposed rule, and so that the comment period on the proposed rule will run concurrently with the comment period for similar margin and capital requirements proposed by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Agencies have determined that an extension of the comment period until July 11, 2011 is appropriate. This action will allow interested persons additional time to analyze the proposed rules and prepare their comments.
