Regulators clarify five year-transition rule and CECL Rule
FDIC FIL-32-2020, issued yesterday, delivered a joint statement by the Fed, FDIC, and OCC to clarify the interaction between the interim final rule that provides a five-year transition period for the impact of the current expected credit loss methodology (CECL) on regulatory capital and the temporary CECL relief provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
On March 27, 2020, the agencies issued an interim final rule that provides banking organizations that were required (as of January 1, 2020) to adopt CECL during the 2020 calendar year an option to delay an estimate of CECL's impact on regulatory capital. Also, on March 27, 2020, the CARES Act was signed into law. The CARES Act provides banking organizations optional temporary relief from complying with CECL. The joint statement clarifies the interaction between the CECL IFR and the CARES Act for purposes of regulatory capital requirements.
UPDATE: The interim final rule was published at 85 FR 17723 on 3/31/2020. The agencies published a final rule, "Revised Transition of the Current Expected Credit Losses Methodology for Allowances," at 85 FR 61577 on 9/30/2020 that is consistent with the interim final rule published on 3/31/2020, with certain clarifications and minor adjustments in response to public comments related to the mechanics of the transition and the eligibility criteria for applying the transition.
