SUBJECT: Webinar on the New Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report) for Small Institutions and Other Call Report Revisions Scheduled for March 8

As the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) previously advised, the federal banking agencies are implementing a new streamlined FFIEC 051 Call Report for eligible small institutions and other burden-reducing changes to the existing versions of the Call Report effective March 31, 2017 (see FIL-82-2016, dated December 30, 2016). "Eligible small institutions" are institutions with domestic offices only and total assets of less than $1 billion, excluding those that are advanced approaches institutions for regulatory capital purposes. These revisions to the Call Report requirements are subject to approval by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.

On Wednesday, March 8, 2017, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Eastern Time, the banking agencies, under the auspices of the FFIEC, will conduct a webinar for bankers to introduce the new FFIEC 051 Call Report, explain its content and how it differs from the existing FFIEC 041 Call Report, and summarize the revisions to the FFIEC 031 and FFIEC 041 Call Reports. A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation.
