On August 16th, the OCC published a notice of a proposed information collection entitled: "Company-Run Annual Stress Test Reporting Template and Documentation for Covered Institutions with Total Consolidated Assets of $50 Billion or More under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act." Section 165(i)(2) of the Dodd-Frank Act requires certain financial companies with total consolidated assets over $10 billion, including national banks and federal savings associations, to conduct annual stress tests and requires the primary financial regulatory agency of those financial companies to issue regulations implementing the stress test requirements. On January 24, 2012, the OCC published a notice of proposed rulemaking implementing the section 165(i)(2) annual stress test requirement. The notice of proposed information collection describes the reports required in order for covered institutions with consolidated assets of $50 billion or more to meet the reporting requirements of section 165(i)(2). The OCC will publish a separate proposal addressing the reports required to be filed by covered institutions with assets between $10 and $50 billion. Comments should be submitted on or before October 15, 2012. OCC Press Release. See also, reporting templates.
