Confidentiality Disclaimer – Multiple Filing Agents
An institution (Filer) may authorize multiple agents to file submissions on its behalf through E-Apps. These filing agents may be employees of the Filer or its affiliates (internal filing agents) and/or representatives of unrelated third parties, such as law firms (external filing agents).
E-Apps does not provide complete confidentiality to Filers with multiple filing agents. Each filing agent, whether internal or external, can view a complete list of filings submitted through E-Apps on the Institution’s behalf. This list is comprised of brief, standardized descriptions of each filing type, including the authorization sought. Where more than one party is involved in a proposal (e.g., where a Filer seeks authorization to acquire another entity or entities), the identities of the parties also may appear.
A filing agent cannot view the contents of any filing or associated documents. Nevertheless, an agent not authorized to make a particular filing can become aware of the fact and type of a proposed transaction and authorization sought before the fact of filing or details regarding the proposal have been publicly announced. This could be undesirable in some instances, including those in which an external filing agent also represents competitors or potential competitors of the Filer.
A Filer may wish to take this limitation on confidentiality into consideration when authorizing multiple filing agents or when deciding whether to file a particular submission through E-Apps. Please note that for filings not originally made through E-Apps, the Reserve Banks may scan those filings into E-Apps so that they may be distributed to and processed by FRS staff electronically. When this is done, the Reserve Banks have the option to make available through E-Apps the same information on the filing that would be available to external filers and their filing agents had the filing originally been submitted through E-Apps. In addition, Filers and their filing agents will have the ability to make subsequent submissions related to the filing through E-Apps. A Filer seeking to avoid the confidentiality concerns noted above should clearly advise the Reserve Bank any time it does not want any information on a filing (including the fact of submission) made available through E-Apps.
Note: E-Apps is unavailable every Sunday from 4:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. CT (9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. GMT) for scheduled maintenance.
