Interagency Proposal on the Classification of Commercial Credit Exposures
Document Number: 05-5982
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-03-28
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury, Office of Thrift Supervision, Comptroller of the Currency
The OCC, Board, FDIC, and OTS (the agencies) request comment on their proposal to revise the classification system for commercial credit exposures. The proposal will replace the current commercial loan classification system categories ``special mention,'' ``substandard,'' and ``doubtful'' with a two-dimensional based framework. The proposed framework would be used by institutions and supervisors for the uniform classification of commercial and industrial loans; leases; receivables; mortgages; and other extensions of credit made for business purposes by federally insured depository institutions and their subsidiaries (institutions), based on an assessment of borrower creditworthiness and estimated loss severity. The proposed framework would not modify the interagency classification of retail credit as stated in the ``Uniform Retail Credit Classification and Account Management Policy Statement,'' issued in February 2000. However, by creating a new treatment for commercial loan exposures, the proposed framework would modify Part I of the ``Revised Uniform Agreement on the Classification of Assets and Appraisal of Securities Held by Banks and Thrifts' issued in June 2004. This proposal is intended to enhance the methodology used to systematically assess the level of credit risk posed by individual commercial extensions of credit and the level of an institution's aggregate commercial credit risk.
