For release at 12:00 p.m. EDT

The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today finalized revisions to the regulatory capital rules adopted in July 2013.

The final rule applies only to large, internationally active banking organizations that determine their regulatory capital ratios under the advanced approaches rule--generally those with at least $250 billion in total consolidated assets or at least $10 billion in total on-balance sheet foreign exposures. The agencies published changes to the rules affecting these organizations on December 18, 2014, and the final rule adopts these changes substantially as proposed.

The final rule corrects and updates certain aspects of the advanced approaches rule, including the calculation requirements for risk-weighted assets for advanced approaches banking organizations. Many of the changes enhance consistency of the advanced approaches with international capital standards.

The final rule will be effective October 1, 2015.
