Interagency Guidelines Establishing Information Security Standards
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) is amending Appendix D-2 of Regulation H and Appendix F of Regulation Y to correct citations to rules on privacy of consumer financial information.
Amendments to the Capital Plan and Stress Test Rules
The Board invites comment on a notice of proposed rulemaking that would amend the capital plan and stress test rules to modify, following a transition period, the start date of the capital plan and stress test cycles from October 1 of a calendar year to January 1 of the following calendar year. The proposed rule would make other changes to the rules, including amending the capital plan rule to limit a bank holding company's ability to make capital distributions to the extent that the bank holding company's actual capital issuances are less than the amount indicated in its capital plan under baseline conditions, measured on a quarterly basis. The proposed rule would clarify application of the capital plan rule to a bank holding company that is a subsidiary of a U.S. intermediate holding company of a foreign banking organization and the characteristics of a stressed scenario to be included in company run stress tests. The proposed rule also would revise the Board's Policy Statement on the Scenario Design Framework for Stress Testing and the Board's Regulation YY to reflect the revisions to the start date of the stress test cycle.
