OCC Extends Deadline For Application Of Lending Limits Rule

On January 4, the OCC issued a final rule that extends until July 1, 2013 the temporary exception for the application of its lending limits rule to certain credit exposures. In June 2012, the OCC issued an interim final rule to implement Dodd-Frank Act revisions to the statutory definitions of loans and extensions of credit for lending limit purposes to include certain credit exposures arising from a derivative transaction, repurchase agreement, reverse repurchase agreement, securities lending transaction, or securities borrowing transaction. That interim rule gave institutions until January 1, 2013 to comply, and the OCC extended that date to April 2013 through a recent bulletin. The instant rule extends the date once more and explains that, without the extension, institutions that wish to use an internal model method to determine credit exposure for derivative transactions and securities financing transactions may not have sufficient time to develop, receive approval for, and implement such a model.
