Due to “the range and complexity of the issues addressed in the rulemaking,” the Federal Reserve Board (Board) has extended until April 30, 2013, the comment period on a proposed rule to implement the enhanced prudential standards and early remediation requirements established under sections 165 and 166 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act for foreign banking organizations and foreign nonbank financial companies supervised by the Board. The enhanced prudential standards include risk-based capital and leverage requirements, liquidity standards, risk management and risk committee requirements, single-counterparty credit limits and stress test requirements.
