Subject to the limitations of paragraph 3.0 of this Regulation, a bank may:

2.1.1 The bank offers deposits, and all such deposits are eligible products; and

2.1.2 Balances in deposits count at least as much as nondeposit products toward the minimum balance.

2.2.1.1 Is incorporated, chartered, or otherwise organized outside the United States; and

2.2.1.2 Has its principal place of business outside the United States; or

3.0 Limitations on exceptions.

Any exception authorized pursuant to this Regulation shall terminate upon a finding by the Commissioner that the arrangement is resulting in anti-competitive practices. The eligibility of a bank to operate under any exception authorized pursuant to this Regulation shall terminate upon a finding by the Commissioner that its exercise of this authority is resulting in anti-competitive practices.
