1. Title: Application for Consent to Exercise Trust Powers.
OMB Number: 3064-0025.
Form Number: FDIC 6200/09.
Frequency of Response: On occasion.
Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks wishing to exercise
Estimated Number of Respondents: 18.
Estimated Time per Response for Eligible Depository Institutions: 8
Estimated Time per Response for Institutions that do not Qualify as
Eligible Institutions: 24 hours.
Total Annual Burden: 208 hours.
General Description of Collection: FDIC regulations (12 CFR 333.2)
prohibit any insured state nonmember bank from changing the general
character of its business without the prior written consent of the
FDIC. The exercise of trust powers by a bank is usually considered to
be a change in the general character of a bank's business if the bank
did not exercise those powers previously. Therefore, unless a bank is
currently exercising trust powers, it must file a formal application to
obtain the FDIC's written consent to exercise trust powers. State
banking authorities, not the FDIC, grant trust powers to their banks.
The FDIC merely consents to the exercise of such powers. Applicants use
form FDIC 6200/09 to obtain FDIC's consent.
2. Title: Interagency Guidance on Asset Securitization Activities.
OMB Number: 3064-0137.
Form Number: None.
Affected Public: Insured state nonmember banks involved in asset
Estimated Number of Responses: 20.
Estimated Time per Response: 7.45 hours.
Total Annual Burden: 149 hours.
General Description of Collection: The collection applies to
institutions engaged in asset securitization and consists in
recordkeeping requirements associated with developing or upgrading a
written asset securitization policy, documenting fair value of retained
interests, and a management information system to monitor
securitization activities. Bank managements use this information as the
basis for the safe and sound operation of their asset securitization
activities and to ensure that they minimize operational risk in these
activities. The FDIC uses the information to evaluate the quality of an
institution's risk management practices, and to assist institutions
without proper internal supervision of their asset securitization
activities to implement corrective action to conduct these activities
in a safe and sound manner.
3. Title: Consumer Protections for Depository Institution Sales of
OMB Number: 3064-0140.

acknowledgments, at two different times: (1) Before the completion of
the initial sale of an insurance product or annuity to a consumer; and
(2) at the time of application for the extension of credit (if
insurance products or annuities are sold, solicited, advertised, or
offered in connection with an extension of credit).
