US Agencies (FDIC, FED, and OCC) are proposing to extend for three years, without revision, the market risk regulatory report for institutions subject to the market risk capital rule (FFIEC 102). FFIEC 102 is currently an approved collection of information for each agency. FFIEC has approved the US Agencies' proposal. Comments must be submitted on or before August 26, 2019.
FFIEC 102 is filed quarterly with the US Agencies and provides information for market risk institutions, defined for this purpose as the institutions that are subject to the market risk capital rule as incorporated into Subpart F of the US Agencies' regulatory capital rules. Each market risk institution is required to file the FFIEC 102 for the agencies' use in assessing the reasonableness and accuracy of the institution's calculation of its minimum capital requirements under the market risk capital rule and in evaluating the institution's capital in relation to its risks. Additionally, the market risk information collected in the FFIEC 102:
- Permits the US Agencies to monitor the market risk profile of, and evaluate the impact and competitive implications of, the market risk capital rule on individual market risk institutions and the industry
- Provides the most current statistical data available to identify areas of market risk, on which to focus for onsite and offsite examinations
- Allows the US Agencies to assess and monitor the levels and components of each reporting institution's risk-based capital requirements for market risk and the adequacy of the institution's capital under the market risk capital rule
- Assists market risk institutions in validating their implementation of the market risk framework
US Agencies invite comment on the following topics related to these collections of information:
- Whether the information collections are necessary for the proper performance of the US Agencies' functions, including whether the information has practical utility
- The accuracy of the US Agencies' estimates of the burden of the information collections, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used
- Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected
- Ways to minimize the burden of information collections on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology
- Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information
At the end of the comment period for this notice, FFIEC and the US Agencies will review the comments received to determine whether to modify the proposal in response to comments. US Agencies will then publish a second Federal Register notice for a 30-day comment period and submit the final FFIEC 102 to OMB for review and approval.
