Title: Procedures for Monitoring Bank Protection Act Compliance.

General Description of Collection: The Bank Protection Act of 1968
(12 U.S.C. 1881-1884) requires each Federal supervisory agency to
promulgate rules establishing minimum standards for security devices
and procedures to discourage financial crime and to assist in the
identification of persons who commit such crimes. To avoid the
necessity of constantly updating a technology-based regulation, the
FDIC takes a flexible approach to implementing this statute. It
requires each insured nonmember bank to designate a security officer
who will administer a written security program. The security program
shall: (1) Establish procedures for opening and closing for business
and for safekeeping valuables; (2) establish procedures that will
assist in identifying persons committing crimes against the bank; (3)
provide for initial and periodic training of employees in their
responsibilities under the security program; and (4) provide for
selecting, testing, operating and maintaining security devices as
prescribed in the regulation. In addition, the FDIC requires the
security officer to report at least annually to the bank's board of
directors on the effectiveness of the security program.

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 6th day of September, 2006.
