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
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

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.
