On September 10th, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") adopted an interim final rule that revises its risk-based and leverage capital requirements for FDIC-supervised institutions. The interim final rule is substantially identical to a joint final rule previously issued by the OCC and Federal Reserve Board with the FDIC. The interim final rule consolidates three separate notices of proposed rulemaking that the agencies jointly published in the Federal Register on August 30, 2012, with selected changes. The interim final rule implements a revised definition of regulatory capital, a new common equity tier 1 minimum capital requirement, a higher minimum tier 1 capital requirement, and, for FDIC-supervised institutions subject to the advanced approaches risk-based capital rules, a supplementary leverage ratio that incorporates a broader set of exposures in the denominator. The interim final rule is effective January 1, 2014. Comments should be submitted on or before November 12, 2013. 78 FR 55339.
