FDIC ANPR for comments on IDI rule
FDIC directors have approved an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) seeking comment on ways to tailor and improve the agency's rule requiring certain insured depository institutions (IDIs) to submit resolution plans. The rule currently requires IDIs with more than $50 billion in assets to submit resolution plans that should enable the FDIC to resolve the institution in the event of insolvency. Among other issues, the agency is considering revising the $50 billion threshold for application of the rule and tiering the rule's requirements based on the size, complexity, or other characteristics of an IDI. The agency is also seeking feedback on ways to streamline plan submissions for larger, more complex firms and on whether to replace plan submissions with periodic engagement and capabilities testing for smaller, less complex firms that are subject to the rule. The FDIC Board also voted to delay the next round of submissions under the IDI Rule until the rulemaking process has been completed. Chairman McWilliams also issued a statement regarding the ANPR.
