    General Description of Collection: On June 30, 1977, the Securities 
and Exchange Commission (SEC) published its final report on bank 
securities activities pursuant to its mandate under section 11A(e) of 
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The final report included a 
recommendation to Congress that the Federal banking agencies be 
mandated to issue and enforce specific rules and regulations governing 
the conduct of banks in effecting transactions in securities for the 
accounts of others. This recommendation required that such rules and 
regulations cover all aspects of this activity including personnel 
competency standards, recordkeeping requirements, and confirmation 
requirements.
    The FDIC developed its regulation 12 CFR 344 to be responsive, in 
part, to the recommendations of the SEC final report. The regulation's 
purpose is to ensure that purchasers of securities in transactions 
effected by an insured state nonmember bank are provided adequate 
information concerning the transactions. The regulation is also 
designed to ensure that insured state nonmember banks maintain adequate 
records and controls with respect to these securities transactions

Request for Comment

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether these collections of 
information are necessary for the proper performance of the FDIC's 
functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) 
the accuracy of the estimate of the burden of the information 
collections, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the 
information collections on respondents, including through the use of 
automated collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology. All comments will become a matter of public record.

    Dated at Washington, DC, this 30th day of May, 2006.

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Robert E. Feldman,
Executive Secretary.
