FDIC Extends Comment Period on Proposal to Ensure Safety and Soundness of Industrial Banks

May 27, 2020


WASHINGTON — The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has extended the public comment period for its proposed rule regarding industrial banks and industrial loan companies (industrial banks) by 30 days to July 1, 2020.

On March 17, 2020, the FDIC Board of Directors approved for publication a proposed rule regarding the organization or acquisition of an industrial bank by companies not supervised by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The proposed rule would formalize a supervisory framework that will ensure the safe and sound operation of the industrial bank.

An extension of the comment period will allow interested parties additional time to analyze the issues and to prepare comments to address the questions posed by the FDIC.
