The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) announced on July 26 that it is developing a regulatory calendar to help community banks stay up-to-date on changes in federal banking laws, regulations, and supervisory guidance. The calendar will summarize regulatory developments and highlight key dates to facilitate industry comment and compliance. A draft of the calendar is available on the FDIC Web site.

Among other things, the calendar:

  • includes notices of proposed, interim, and final rulemakings as well as supervisory guidance to financial institutions issued by the FDIC and Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC), joint issuances with other regulators that do not fall under the auspices of the FFIEC, and independent issuances by other regulators relevant to the FDIC's supervisory examination programs;  
  • provides key dates banks should be aware of, such as the comment period for proposed rules and the effective date for finalized guidance; and  
  • provides dates and topics of upcoming outreach events for bankers, such as conference calls to discuss issues of importance.
