The Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday announced the extension of the comment period until October 22, 2012, on three notices of proposed rulemaking that would revise and replace current capital rules. The proposals by the Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency would implement the Basel III regulatory capital reforms from the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and certain aspects of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
The comment period was extended to allow interested persons more time to understand, evaluate, and prepare comments on the proposals. Originally, comments were due by September 7, 2012.
