Treatment by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as Conservator or Receiver of Financial Assets Transferred by an Insured Depository Institution in Connection With a Securitization or Participation After September 30, 2010
Document Number: 2010-24595
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-09-30
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (``FDIC'') has adopted an amended regulation regarding the treatment by the FDIC, as receiver or conservator of an insured depository institution, of financial assets transferred by the institution in connection with a securitization or a participation (the ``Rule''). The Rule continues the safe harbor for financial assets transferred in connection with securitizations and participations in which the financial assets were transferred in compliance with the existing regulation. The Rule also imposes further conditions for a safe harbor for securitizations or participations issued after a transition period. On March 11, 2010, the FDIC established a transition period through September 30, 2010. In order to provide for a transition to the new conditions for the safe harbor, the Rule provides for an extended transition period through December 31, 2010 for securitizations and participations. The Rule defines the conditions for safe harbor protection for securitizations and participations for which transfers of financial assets are made after the transition period; and clarifies the application of the safe harbor to transactions that comply with the new accounting standards for off balance sheet treatment as well as those that do not comply with those accounting standards. The conditions contained in the Rule will serve to protect the Deposit Insurance Fund (``DIF'') and the FDIC's interests as deposit insurer and receiver by aligning the conditions for the safe harbor with better and more sustainable securitization practices by insured depository institutions (``IDIs'').
Deposit Insurance Regulations; Unlimited Coverage for Noninterest-bearing Transaction Accounts
Document Number: 2010-24594
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-09-30
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
The FDIC is proposing to amend its regulations to implement section 343 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act''),\1\ providing for unlimited deposit insurance for ``noninterest-bearing transaction accounts'' for two years starting December 31, 2010. This unlimited coverage for ``noninterest-bearing transaction accounts'' is similar but not identical to the protection provided for such account owners under the FDIC's Transaction Account Guarantee Program (``TAGP''). The proposed rule serves as a vehicle for the FDIC Board of Directors to announce that it will not extend the TAGP beyond the scheduled expiration date of December 31, 2010. Because of the differences between the TAGP and the new statutory provision, changes to the rules are necessary.

In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. chapter 35), the OCC, the Board, and the FDIC (the ``agencies'') may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), of which the agencies are members, has approved the agencies' publication for public comment of a proposal to extend, with revision, the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report), which are currently approved collections of information. At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the FFIEC and the agencies should modify the proposed revisions prior to giving final approval. The agencies will then submit the revisions to OMB for review and approval.
