Suspended Counterparty Program
Document Number: 2013-24730
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-10-23
Agency: Federal Housing Finance Agency
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is issuing an interim final rule with request for comments that generally codifies the procedures FHFA follows under its existing Suspended Counterparty Program, established in June, 2012. The interim final rule requires the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac), and the twelve Federal Home Loan Banks (Banks) (hereafter, collectively, ``regulated entities'' or individually, ``regulated entity'') to submit reports to FHFA when they become aware that an individual or institution and any affiliates thereof with which they are doing or have done business has committed fraud or other financial misconduct during the time period specified in the rule. The interim final rule sets forth the procedures for FHFA issuance of proposed and final suspension orders. Proposed suspension orders include an opportunity for response by the affected individual or institution and by the regulated entities. A final suspension order may be issued if FHFA determines that the covered misconduct is of a type that would be likely to cause significant financial or reputational harm to a regulated entity or otherwise threaten the safe and sound operation of a regulated entity. Final suspension orders direct the regulated entities to cease or refrain from doing business with the individuals or institutions for a specified period of time or permanently.
