General Description of Reports
This information collection (FFIEC 001 and FFIEC 006) is mandatory:
12 U.S.C. 161 and 1817 (for national banks), 12 U.S.C. 1464, 1725, 1730
(for thrift institutions), 12 U.S.C. 248(a)(1) and (2) and 1844(c) (for

insured state nonmember commercial and savings banks). The FFIEC 006,

Statement on the FFIEC 001, collected by all of the agencies, are given
treatment (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(8)). Small businesses (i.e., small banks)
are not affected.
These interagency reports collect information on fiduciary asset
totals and activities. They are used to monitor changes in the volume
and character of discretionary trust activity and the volume of
nondiscretionary trust activity and to determine resource needs for
supervisory purposes. The data are also used for statistical and
analytical purposes. No changes are proposed to the FFIEC 001 or the
FFIEC 006 reporting forms or instructions.
The agencies did not receive any comments in response to the notice
published in the Federal Register on September 3, 1999 (64 FR 48453)

c. Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the

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.
Comments submitted in response to this notice will be shared among
the agencies. All comments will become a matter of public record.
