Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
The OCC is proposing to renew the following currently approved collection of information without change:
The Agencies, on August 30, 2012, proposed three rules that would amend this collection: Regulatory Capital Rules: Regulatory Capital, Implementation of Basel III, Minimum Regulatory Capital Ratios, Capital Adequacy, Transition Provisions, and Prompt Corrective Action (77 FR 52792); Regulatory Capital Rules: Standardized Approach for Risk-Weighted Assets; Market Discipline and Disclosure Requirements (77 FR 52888); and Regulatory Capital Rules: Advanced Approaches Risk-based Capital Rules; Market Risk Capital Rule (77 FR 52978). An information collection request to revise and rename the collection on the basis of the three rules has been submitted to OMB for review. However, the OCC is proceeding with the renewal process to ensure continuation of the collection in the event that OMB does not act on the OCC's request to revise the collection prior to its expiration date.
Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized, included in the request for OMB approval, and become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on:
a. Whether the information collections are necessary for the proper performance of the OCC's functions, including whether the information has practical utility;
b. The accuracy of the OCC's estimate of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
c. Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
d. Ways to minimize the burden of information collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and
e. Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
