(a) Purpose. The purpose of this part is to require all national banks and federal branches and agencies to prepare an annual financial disclosure statement, and to make this statement available to security holders, depositors, and anyone who requests it. The bank may, at its option, supplement this financial disclosure statement with narrative information management deems important. The availability of this information is expected to promote better public understanding of, and confidence in, individual national banks and the national banking system. The annual disclosure statement will serve to complement the supervisory efforts of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to promote bank safety and soundness and public confidence in the national banking system.
(b) OMB control number. The collection of information requirements contained in this part were approved by the Office of Management and Budget under OMB control number 1557-0182.

Unless otherwise defined in this part, the terms used have the same meaning as in the instructions to the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Reports).

(b) The annual disclosure statement shall be available by March 31 of each year, or by an earlier date as necessary to be made available to security holders in advance of the annual meeting of shareholders. A bank shall continually make its annual disclosure statement available until the annual disclosure statement for the succeeding year becomes available.

(a) Information concerning financial condition and results of operations. The annual disclosure statement for any year shall reflect a fair presentation of the bank’s financial condition at the end of that year and the preceding year. The annual disclosure statement may, at the option of bank management, consist of the bank’s entire Call Reports, or applicable portions thereof, for the relevant periods. At a minimum, the statement must contain the same or comparable information as provided in the following Call Report schedules.
(1) For national banks:
(i) Schedule RC (Balance Sheet);
(ii) Schedule RC-N (Past Due and Nonaccrual Loans, Leases, and Other Assets—column A and memorandum Item #1 need not be included);
(iii) Schedule RI (Income Statement);
