Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Joint Comment Request
In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (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 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. On February 21, 2013, the agencies, under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), requested public comment for 60 days on a proposal to extend, with revision, the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report), which are currently approved collections of information. After considering the comments received on the proposal, the FFIEC and the agencies would proceed with the following proposed revisions effective June 30, 2013: (1) A scope revision to an item in the equity capital reconciliation; and (2) reporting changes for large and highly complex institutions for deposit insurance assessment purposes. Certain modifications have been made to the assessment reporting changes in response to comments received. The FFIEC and the agencies are continuing to evaluate the other Call Report changes proposed in February 2013 in light of the comments received and would not implement these changes as of June 30, 2013 (and, in one case, as of December 31, 2013), as had been proposed. The FFIEC's and the agencies' decisions regarding these additional proposed data items would be the subject of a separate Federal Register notice.
