    General description of report: The Board's Regulation F--
Limitations on Interbank Liabilities--establishes limits on depository 
institutions' credit exposure to individual correspondents in order to 
mitigate the risk that the failure of a correspondent would pose to an 
insured depository institution.\1\ Section 206.3 of Regulation F (12 
CFR 206.3) requires insured depository institutions to establish and 
maintain policies and procedures designed to prevent excessive exposure 
to correspondents. This regulation applies to all depository 
institutions insured by the FDIC.

    \1\ Correspondent means a U.S. depository institution or a 
foreign bank to which a bank has exposure, but does not include a 
commonly controlled correspondent. 12 CFR 206.2(c).

information obtained by the Board constitutes nonpublic commercial or 
financial information, which is both customarily and actually treated 
as private by the financial institution, the financial institution may 
request confidential treatment pursuant to exemption 4 of FOIA.\4\
