The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or FDIC, has adopted a final rule to implement section 210(r) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Under that section, individuals or entities that have, or may have, contributed to the failure of a “covered financial company” cannot buy a covered financial company’s assets from the FDIC. The final rule establishes a self-certification process that is a prerequisite to the purchase of assets of a covered financial company from the FDIC.
