Abstract

This report contains asset and liability information for foreign
branches of insured U.S. commercial banks and is required for
regulatory and supervisory purposes. The information is used to analyze
the foreign operations of U.S. commercial banks. All foreign branches
of U.S. banks regardless of charter type file this report with the
appropriate Federal Reserve District Bank. The Federal Reserve collects
this information on behalf of the U.S. bank's primary federal bank
regulatory agency.
Current actions: The agencies did not receive any comments in
response to the notice published in the Federal Register on April 18,
2000, (65 FR 20847) requesting public comment on the extension without
revision of these information collections. The agencies, however, are
making a minor clarification to the FFIEC 030 general instructions
regarding the treatment of intrabank transactions, effective September
30, 2000.
