Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the implementation of the following report: Report title: Payment Systems Surveys: Ad Hoc Payments Systems Survey, Currency Quality Sampling Survey, Currency Quality Survey, and Currency Functionality Survey. Agency form number: FR 3054a, FR 3054b, FR 3054c, and FR 3054d. OMB control number: 7100-0332. Frequency: Annual, semi-annual, and on occasion. Reporters: Financial and nonfinancial businesses (banknote equipment manufacturers, or global wholesale bank note dealers). Estimated annual reporting hours: FR 3054a: 15,000 hours; FR 3054b: 90 hours; FR 3054c: 1,500 hours; and FR 3054d: 960 hours. Estimated average hours per response: FR 3054a: 15 hours; FR 3054b: 0.5 hours; FR 3054c: 30 hours; and FR 3054d: 48 hours. Number of respondents: FR 3054a: 100; FR 3054b: 180; FR 3054c; 25; and FR 3054d: 20. General description of report: These information collections are authorized pursuant to Section 11(d) of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 248(d)) and are voluntary. The ability of the Federal Reserve to maintain the confidentiality of information provided by respondents to the Payment Systems surveys would be determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the type of information provided for a particular survey. Depending upon the survey questions, confidential treatment could be warranted under section (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Abstract: The FR 3054a will be an event-driven survey used to obtain information specifically tailored to the Federal Reserve's operational and fiscal agency responsibilities. The FR 3054a could be conducted independently by the Federal Reserve, jointly with another government agency, or a Federal Reserve Bank. The FR 3054b will be an annual survey to assess the quality of currency in circulation and will be conducted jointly with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco's Cash Product Office (CPO), the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond's Currency Technology Office (CTO), and each Federal Reserve Bank's cash department. The FR 3054c will be a semi-annual survey to determine depository institutions' and Banknote Equipment Manufacturers' opinions of currency quality and would be conducted jointly with the CPO and CTO. The FR 3054d will be an annual survey to assess the functionality of Federal Reserve notes in banknote handling equipment. The FR 3054d data collected from BEMs will be used as input for future designs of Federal Reserve notes. The FR 3054d will be conducted jointly with the U.S. Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the CTO. The FR 3054a, FR 3054b, FR 3054c, and FR 3054d will be sent to financial and nonfinancial businesses. The Federal Reserve will use the data collected from these surveys to determine: (1) Demand for currency and coin, (2) market preferences regarding currency quality, (3) quality of currency in circulation, (4) features used by bank note authentication equipment to denominate and authenticate bank notes, and (5) whether changes to Federal Reserve Bank sorting algorithms are necessary to ensure that currency in circulation remains fit for commerce. Current Actions: On December 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 81607) requesting public comment for 60 days on the implementation of the FR 3054a, FR 3054b, FR 3054c, and FR 3054d surveys. The comment period for this notice expired on February 28, 2011. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments; the surveys will be implemented as proposed. Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the extension for three years, with revision, of the following reports: 1. Report title: Consumer Satisfaction Questionnaire, Federal Reserve Consumer HelpConsumer Survey, and Consumer Online Complaint Form. Agency form number: FR 1379a, FR 1379b, and FR 1379c. OMB control number: 7100-0135. Frequency: Event generated. Reporters: Consumers. Estimated annual reporting hours: FR 1379a: 116 hours; FR 1379b: 167 hours; FR 1379c: 1,351 hours. Estimated average hours per response: FR 1379a: 5 minutes; FR 1379b: 5 minutes; FR 1379c: 10 minutes. Number of respondents: FR 1379a: 1,391; FR 1379b: 2,001; FR 1379c: 8,107. General description of report: This information collection is voluntary and is authorized by law pursuant the Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act (15 U.S.C. 57(a)(f)). The FR 1379a is not considered confidential. The FR 1379b collects the respondent's name and the respondent may provide other personal information and information regarding his or her complaint in response to question five. The FR 1379c collects the respondent's third-party representative if the respondent has such a representative. Thus, some of the information collected on the FR 1379b and c is considered confidential under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4), (b)(6), (b)(7)). Abstract: The FR 1379a questionnaire is sent to consumers who have filed complaints with the Federal Reserve against state member banks. The information is used to assess their satisfaction with the Federal Reserve's handling and written response to their complaint at the conclusion of an investigation. The FR 1379b questionnaire is sent as needed to consumers who contact the Federal Reserve Consumer Help (FRCH) to file a complaint or inquiry. The information is used to determine whether consumers are satisfied with the way the FRCH handled their complaint. Consumers use the FR 1379c to electronically submit a complaint against a financial institution to the FRCH. Current Actions: On December 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 81607) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of this information collection. The comment period for this notice expired on February 28, 2011. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The revisions will be implemented as proposed. 2. Report title: Application for Prior Approval to Become a Bank Holding Company or for a Bank Holding Company to Acquire an Additional Bank or Bank Holding Company, Notification for Prior Approval to Become a Bank Holding Company or for a Bank Holding Company to Acquire an Additional Bank or Bank Holding Company; and Notification for Prior Approval to Engage Directly or Indirectly in Certain Nonbanking Activities. Agency form number: FR Y-3, FR Y-3N, and FR Y-4. OMB control number: 7100-0121. Frequency: Event generated. Reporters: Corporations seeking to become bank holding companies (BHCs), or existing BHCs and state chartered banks that are members of the Federal Reserve System. Estimated annual reporting hours: FR Y-3 Section 3(a)(1): 5,565 hours; FR Y-3 Section 3(a)(3) and 3(a)(5): 9,081 hours; FR Y-3N Section 3(a)(1), 3(a)(3), and 3(a)(5): 225 hours; FR Y-4 Complete notification: 936 hours; FR Y-4 Expedited notification: 90 hours; and FR Y-4 Post- consummation: 8 hours.

General description of report: These information collections are mandatory (12 U.S.C. 1842(a), 1844(b), 1843(j)). The information submitted in the FR Y-3, FR Y-3N, and FR Y-4 is considered to be public unless an institution requests confidential treatment for portions of the particular application or notification. Applicants may rely on any Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemption, but such requests for confidentiality must contain detailed justifications corresponding to the claimed FOIA exemption. Requests for confidentiality must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Abstract: The Federal Reserve requires the submission of these filings for regulatory and supervisory purposes and to allow the Federal Reserve to fulfill its statutory obligations under the Bank Holding Company (BHC) Act of 1956. These filings collect information on proposals by bank holding companies involving formations, acquisitions, mergers, and nonbanking activities. The Federal Reserve must obtain this information to evaluate each individual transaction with respect to financial and managerial factors, permissibility, competitive effects, net public benefits, and the impact on the convenience and needs of affected communities. Current Actions: On December 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 81607) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with minor revision, of this information collection. The comment period for this notice expired on February 28, 2011. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The revision will be implemented as proposed. Final approval under OMB delegated authority of the extension for three years, without revision, of the following reports: 1. Report title: Annual Daylight Overdraft Capital Report for U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks. Agency form number: FR 2225. OMB control number: 7100-0216. Frequency: Annual. Reporters: Foreign banks with U.S. branches or agencies. Estimated annual reporting hours: 45 hours. Estimated average hours per response: 1 hour. Number of respondents: 45. General description of report: This information collection is authorized pursuant to sections 11(i), 16, and 19(f) of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 248(i), 248-1, and 464). A foreign banking organization (FBO) is required to respond in order to obtain or retain a benefit, i.e., in order for the U.S. branch or agency of an FBO to establish and maintain a non-zero net debit cap. The information submitted by respondents is not confidential; however, respondents may request confidential treatment for portions of the report. Data may be considered confidential and exempt from disclosure under section (b)(4) of the Freedom of Information Act if it constitutes commercial or financial information and it would customarily not be released to the public by the person from whom it was obtained (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4)). Abstract: This report was implemented in March 1986 as part of the procedures used to administer the Federal Reserve's Payments System Risk (PSR) policy. A key component of the PSR policy is a limit, or a net debit cap, on an institution's negative intraday balance in its Reserve Bank account. The Federal Reserve calculates an institution's net debit cap by applying the multiple associated with the net debit cap category to the institution's capital. For FBOs, a percentage of the FBO's capital measure, known as the U.S. capital equivalency, is used to calculate the FBO's net debit cap. Currently, an FBO with U.S. branches or agencies may voluntarily file the FR 2225 to provide the Federal Reserve with its capital measure. Because an FBO that files the FR 2225 may be able to use its total capital in determining its U.S capital equivalency measure, which is then used to calculate its net debit cap, an FBO seeking to maximize its daylight overdraft capacity may find it advantageous to file the FR 2225. An FBO that does not file FR 2225 may use an alternative capital measure based on its nonrelated liabilities. Current Actions: On December 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 81607) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of the Annual Daylight Overdraft Capital Report for U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banks. The comment period for this notice expired on February 28, 2011. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. 2. Report title: International Applications and Prior Notifications under Subparts A and C of Regulation K. Agency form number: FR K-1. OMB control number: 7100-0107. Frequency: Event generated. Reporters: State member banks, Edge and agreement corporations, bank holding companies, and certain FBOs. Estimated annual reporting hours: Attachments A and B, 161 hours; Attachments C through G, 120 hours; Attachments H and I, 558 hours; Attachment J, 30 hours; Attachment K, 20 hours. Estimated average hours per response: Attachments A and B, 11.5 hours; Attachments C through G, 10 hours; Attachments H and I, 15.5 hours; Attachment J, 10 hours; Attachment K, 20 hours. Number of respondents: Attachments A and B, 7; Attachments C through G, 6; Attachments H and I, 12; Attachment J, 3; Attachment K, 1. General description of report: This information collection is mandatory pursuant to sections 25 and 25A of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 601-604(a), 611-631) and sections 4(c)(13), 4(c)(14), and 5(c) of the BHC Act (12 U.S.C. 1843(c)(13), 1843(c)(14), 1844(c)). The information submitted in the FR K-1 is considered to be public unless an institution requests confidential treatment for portions of the particular application or notification. Applicants may rely on any FOIA exemption, but such requests for confidentiality must contain detailed justifications corresponding to the claimed FOIA exemption. Requests for confidentiality must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Abstract: Subpart A of Regulation K governs the foreign investments and activities of member banks, Edge and agreement corporations, bank holding companies, and certain investments by foreign organizations. Subpart C of Regulation K governs investments in export trading companies. The FR K-1 information collection contains eleven attachments for the application and notification requirements embodied in Subparts A and C of Regulation K. The Federal Reserve requires these applications for regulatory and supervisory purposes and to allow the Federal Reserve to fulfill its statutory obligations under the Federal Reserve Act and the BHC Act of 1956. Current Actions: On December 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 81607) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the International Applications and Prior Notifications under Subparts A and C of Regulation K. The comment period for this notice expired on February 28, 2011. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. 3. Report title: International Applications and Prior Notifications Under Subpart B of Regulation K. Agency form number: FR K-2. OMB control number: 7100-0284. Frequency: Event generated. Reporters: Foreign banks. Estimated annual reporting hours: 630 hours. Estimated average hours per response: 35 hours. Number of respondents: 18. General description of report: This information collection is mandatory pursuant to sections 7, 10, and 13 of the International Banking Act (12 U.S.C. 3105, 3107, 3108). The applying or notifying organization may request that portions of the information contained in the FR K-2 be afforded confidential treatment. To do so, applicants must demonstrate how the information for which confidentiality is requested would fall within the scope of one or more of the exemptions contained in the Freedom of Information Act. Any such request would have to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Abstract: Foreign banks are required to obtain the prior approval of the Federal Reserve to establish a branch, agency, or representative office; to acquire ownership or control of a commercial lending company in the United States; or to change the status of any existing office in the United States. The Federal Reserve uses the information, in part, to fulfill its statutory obligation to supervise FBOs with offices in the United States. Current Actions: On December 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 81607) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the International Applications and Prior Notifications Under Subpart B of Regulation K. The comment period for this notice expired on February 28, 2011. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. 4.

Reporters: Any company organized under the laws of a foreign country seeking to acquire a U.S. subsidiary bank or BHC. Estimated annual reporting hours: Initial application, 90 hours; subsequent application, 490 hours. Estimated average hours per response: Initial application, 90 hours; subsequent application, 70 hours. Number of respondents: Initial application, 1; subsequent application, 7. General description of report: This information collection is required to obtain or retain a benefit under sections 3(a), 3(c), and 5(a) through 5(c) of the BHC Act (12 U.S.C. 1842(a), (c), 1844(a)-(c)). The information provided in the application is not confidential unless the applicant specifically requests confidentiality and the Federal Reserve approves the request. Abstract: Under the BHC Act, submission of this application is required for any company organized under the laws of a foreign country seeking to acquire a U.S. subsidiary bank or BHC. Applicants must provide financial and managerial information, discuss the competitive effects of the proposed transaction, and discuss how the proposed transaction would enhance the convenience and needs of the community to be served. The Federal Reserve uses the information, in part, to fulfill its supervisory responsibilities with respect to FBOs in the United States. Current Actions: On December 28, 2010, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (75 FR 81607) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the Application for a Foreign Organization to Acquire a U.S. Bank or Bank Holding Company.

Truth in Lending
Document Number: 2011-4385
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-03-02
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is publishing for public comment a proposed rule that would amend Regulation Z (Truth in Lending) to implement certain amendments to the Truth in Lending Act made by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Regulation Z currently requires creditors to establish escrow accounts for higher-priced mortgage loans secured by a first lien on a dwelling. The proposal would implement statutory changes made by the Dodd-Frank Act that lengthen the time for which a mandatory escrow account established for a higher-priced mortgage loan must be maintained. In addition, the proposal would implement the Act's disclosure requirements regarding escrow accounts. The proposal also would exempt certain loans from the statute's escrow requirement. The primary exemption would apply to mortgage loans extended by creditors that operate predominantly in rural or underserved areas, originate a limited number of mortgage loans, and do not maintain escrow accounts for any mortgage loans they service.

Type: Rule
Date: 2011-03-02
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is publishing a final rule to amend Regulation Z, which implements the Truth in Lending Act (TILA). The final rule implements Section 1461 of the recently enacted Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Section 1461 amends TILA to provide a separate, higher rate threshold for determining when the Board's escrow requirement applies to higher-priced mortgage loans that exceed the maximum principal obligation eligible for purchase by Freddie Mac.

Conformance Period for Entities Engaged in Prohibited Proprietary Trading or Private Equity Fund or Hedge Fund Activities
Document Number: 2011-3199
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-02-14
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is adopting a final rule to implement the conformance period during which banking entities and nonbank financial companies supervised by the Board must bring their activities and investments into compliance with the prohibitions and restrictions on proprietary trading and relationships with hedge funds and private equity funds imposed by section 619 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act''). Section 619 is commonly referred to as the ``Volcker Rule.'' The final rule is similar to the proposal issued for comment in November 2010. The Board, however, has incorporated a number of changes to the final rule to address issues raised by public commenters, to reduce potential regulatory burdens, and to clarify application of the rule.

Definitions of “Predominantly Engaged in Financial Activities” and “Significant” Nonbank Financial Company and Bank Holding Company
Document Number: 2011-2978
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-02-11
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is publishing for comment proposed amendments to Regulation Y that establish the criteria for determining whether a company is ``predominantly engaged in financial activities'' and define the terms ``significant nonbank financial company'' and ``significant bank holding company'' for purposes of Title I of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the ``Dodd-Frank Act'' or ``Act''). These terms are relevant to various provisions of Title I of the Dodd-Frank Act, including section 113, which authorizes the Financial Stability Oversight Council (``Council'') to designate a nonbank financial company for supervision by the Board if the Council determines that the company could pose a threat to the financial stability of the United States. The Council recently requested comment on a proposed rule to implement section 113 of the Dodd-Frank Act.
