Regulatory Capital Rules: Regulatory Capital, Implementation of Basel III, Capital Adequacy, Transition Provisions, Prompt Corrective Action, Standardized Approach for Risk-Weighted Assets, Market Discipline and Disclosure Requirements, Advanced Approaches Risk-Based Capital Rule, and Market Risk Capital Rule
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is adopting as final an interim final rule that revised the risk-based and leverage capital requirements for FDIC-supervised institutions, with no substantive changes. This final rule is substantively identical to a joint final rule issued by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve) (together, with the FDIC, the agencies). The interim final rule became effective on January 1, 2014; however, the mandatory compliance date for FDIC-supervised institutions that are not subject to the advanced internal ratings-based approaches (advanced approaches) is January 1, 2015.
Restrictions on Sales of Assets of a Covered Financial Company by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (``FDIC'') is adopting a final rule (the ``final rule'') to implement a section of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd- Frank Act''). Under that section, individuals or entities that have, or may have, contributed to the failure of a ``covered financial company'' cannot buy a covered financial company's assets from the FDIC. The final rule establishes a self-certification process that is a prerequisite to the purchase of assets of a covered financial company from the FDIC.
