Office of the State Banking Commissioner
905 Loan Limitations: Credit Exposure to Derivative Transactions
The State Bank Commissioner proposes to adopt new Regulation 905, “Loan Limitations: Credit Exposure to Derivative Transactions”. This proposed new Regulation sets forth the rules for calculating the credit exposure arising from a derivative transaction entered into by a bank for purposes of determining the bank’s loan limitations pursuant to Section 909 of Title 5 of the Delaware Code.
Section 611 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Public Law 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376 (Dodd-Frank Act), requires state law lending limits to take into consideration credit exposure to derivative transactions in order for FDIC-insured state banks to be permitted to engage in derivative transactions. Dodd-Frank Act Section 610 imposed a similar requirement on national banks, and the United States Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) complied by issuing an interim final rule in June, 2012. Proposed Regulation 905 is based on the OCC's rule so that the requirements for state banks will be the same as those for national banks.
The State Bank Commissioner would adopt the proposed new Regulation 905 on or after December 3, 2012. Other regulations issued by the State Bank Commissioner are not affected by this proposal. The State Bank Commissioner is issuing this regulation in accordance with Title 5 of the Delaware Code.
A copy of the proposed new regulation is published in the Delaware Register of Regulations. A copy is also on file in the Office of the State Bank Commissioner, 555 E. Loockerman Street, Suite 210, Dover, DE 19901 and is available for inspection during regular office hours. Copies are available upon request.
Interested parties are invited to comment or submit written suggestions, data, briefs or other materials to the Office of the State Bank Commissioner as to whether this proposed new regulation should be adopted, rejected or modified. Written materials submitted will be available for inspection at the above address. Comments must be received at or before the public hearing scheduled for 10:00 a.m. December 3, 2012.
A public hearing on the proposed new Regulation will be held in the offices of the State Bank Commissioner, 555 E. Loockerman Street; Dover, Delaware, 19901 on Monday, December 3, 2012, commencing at 10:00 a.m. This notice is issued pursuant to the requirements of Subchapter III of Chapter 11 and Chapter 101 of Title 29 of the Delaware Code.
