Federal Banking Agencies Propose Extension of Certain Capital Rule Transitions


On August 22, 2017, in preparation for a forthcoming proposal that would simplify regulatory capital requirements, federal banking regulators proposed a rule that would extend the existing transitional capital treatment for certain regulatory capital deductions and risk weights. The extension would apply to banking organizations that are not subject to the agencies’ advanced approach to capital rules, which are generally those with less than $250 billion in total consolidated assets and less than $10 billion in total foreign exposure. Comments on this proposal will be accepted for 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. FDIC Press Release. Federal Reserve Press Release. OCC Press Release. Proposal.
