Proposed Regulatory Capital Reporting Changes
The federal banking agencies are requesting comments on proposed revisions to the risk-weighted assets portion of Schedule RC-R, Regulatory Capital, of the Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report). These proposed reporting changes would incorporate into Part II of Schedule RC-R the standardized approach for calculating risk weighted assets under the agencies' revised regulatory capital rules. A limited change to Schedule RC-L, Derivatives and Off-Balance Sheet Items, would revise the reporting of securities borrowed. These proposed Call Report changes would take effect March 31, 2015.
Statement of Applicability to Institutions under $1 Billion in Total Assets: This Financial Institution Letter applies to all FDIC-supervised banks and savings associations, including community institutions. Although proposed revised Schedule RC-R, Part II, would include more risk-weight categories than at present in Part II, certain data items in the new risk-weight categories should have limited applicability to community institutions.
- The proposed changes to Schedule RC-R, Part II, Risk Weighted Assets, are consistent with the revised regulatory capital rules approved by the banking agencies in July 2013. Drafts of the revised reporting forms and instructions for Schedule RC-R, Part II, and Schedule RC-L are available at www.ffiec.gov/ffiec_report_forms.htm.
- In addition to an expanded number of risk-weight categories, other proposed revisions to Schedule RC-R, Part II, include greater detail on loans and new items for reporting securitization exposures under the standardized approach.
- Each institution is invited to review and comment on any or all of the proposed Call Report revisions. Comments must be submitted by August 22, 2014.
- As previously announced, institutions that are not advanced approaches institutions will continue to complete Schedule RC R, Part I.A, Regulatory Capital Components and Ratios, through December 31, 2014. Part I.A will be removed effective March 31, 2015, and all institutions will then complete Part I of Schedule RC-R, which currently is designated Part I.B.
- The banking agencies will conduct a banker teleconference to explain the proposed changes to Schedule RC-R, Part II, and Schedule RC-L and answer questions about the proposal on Friday, June 27, 2014, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Please refer to FIL-31-2014 at http://www.fdic.gov/news/news/financial/2014/fil14031.html for further information about this event and the proposed Call Report changes.
