    Total Annual Burden: 20,290 hours.
    General Description of Collection: The Federal Deposit Insurance
(FDI) Act requires state nonmember banks to obtain FDIC consent to
establish or operate a branch in a foreign country, or to acquire and
hold, directly or indirectly, stock or other evidence of ownership in
any foreign bank or other entity. The FDI Act also authorizes the FDIC
to impose conditions for such consent and to issue regulations related
thereto. This collection is a direct consequence of those statutory
requirements.
    2. Title: Procedures for Monitoring Bank Secrecy Act Compliance.
    OMB Number: 3064-0087.

institutions, in connection with helping to meet the credit needs of
their communities, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods,
consistent with safe and sound banking practices. The FDIC uses the
information in the examination process and in evaluating applications
for mergers, branches, and certain other corporate activities.

    Total Annual Burden: 180 hours.
    General Description of Collection: Section 29 of the FDI Act

capitalized institutions may do so with a waiver from the FDIC, while
well-capitalized institutions may accept, renew, or rollover brokered

policies should address certain lending considerations, including loan-
to-value limits, loan administration policies, portfolio
diversification standards, and documentation, approval and reporting
requirements.
    6. Title: Management Official Interlocks.
    OMB Number: 3064-0118.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks.

348, which implements the Depository Institution Management Interlocks
Act (DIMIA). DIMIA generally prohibits bank management officials from
serving simultaneously with two unaffiliated depository institutions or
their holding companies but allows the FDIC to grant exemptions in
appropriate circumstances.
