SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Part 353 of the FDIC's Rules and Regulations 
requires insured nonmember banks to report to the appropriate 
investigatory and prosecuting authorities and to the FDIC, on a 
prescribed form, criminal violations of the U.S. Code that involve or 
affect the banks' affairs. The primary purpose of the reporting 
requirement is to assure that the specific information needed by 
investigators and prosecutors for effective law enforcement is provided 
in an orderly and timely fashion. In addition, the ability of the FDIC 
to monitor and act to reduce losses of insured nonmember banks as a 
result of criminal activity is enhanced by receiving the reports. The 
Criminal Referral form is used by each of the following agencies: the 
Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of 
the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, 
the Office of Thrift Supervision, the National Credit Union 
Administration, and the Resolution Trust Corporation (Each agency 
separately seeks OMB approval for the use of this form). FDIC needs 
this information to monitor white collar crime and insider abuse, which 
can be serious threats to a bank's security and undermine confidence in 
banks. FDIC regulation 12 CFR 353 requires that, whenever it appears 
that a criminal violation of the United States Code involving or 
affecting the assets or affairs of an insured nonmember bank has been 
committed or attempted, the bank shall promptly report the apparent 
violation to be the appropriate field office of the FBI, the applicable 
U.S. Attorney's Office, and to the FDIC regional director.
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Robert E. Feldman,
Deputy Executive Secretary.
