Such amendments may include (1) replacing the framework’s complex treatment of high volatility commercial real estate exposures with a more straightforward treatment for most acquisition, development, or construction loans; (2) simplifying the current regulatory capital treatment for mortgage servicing assets, timing difference deferred tax assets, and holdings of regulatory capital instruments issued by financial institutions; and (3) simplifying the current limitations on minority interests in regulatory capital. The agencies would seek industry comment on these amendments through the normal notice and comment process. The OCC regularly monitors and analyzes developments in the banking industry to ensure that the revised capital rules appropriately reflect risks faced by banking organizations and considers many issues before determining whether a change to the revised capital rules is appropriate. The safety and soundness of community banks depends, in part, on having and maintaining sufficient regulatory capital. More than 500 banking organizations, mostly community banks, failed in the aftermath of the financial crisis largely because they did not have sufficient capital relative to their risk. To assist community banks, the agencies published a community bank guide to help community banks understand the sections of the revised 2013 capital rules most relevant to their operations.5 The OCC has also published a number of guidance documents to assist banks in their capital planning efforts 6 and intends to publish revisions to its capital handbook to make guidance publications and regulatory revisions available in one place. Comments continue to be invited on: (a) Whether the collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the OCC’s functions, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the OCC’s estimates of the burden of the information collections, including the 5 ‘‘New Capital Rule; Community Bank Guide,’’ www.occ.gov/news-issuances/news-releases/2013/ 2013-110b.pdf. 6 For example, OCC bulletin 2012–16, (June 7, 2012) ‘‘Capital Planning: Guidance for Evaluating Capital Planning and Adequacy,’’ https:// www.occ.gov/news-issuances/bulletins/2012/ bulletin-2012-16.html.
