    US Agencies Correct Errors in Regulation on Amendments to Volcker Rule

    August 06, 2019

    US Agencies (CFTC, FDIC, FED, and SEC) published a notice in the Federal Register to correct errors in the "amendatory instructions" to the final rule excluding community banks from Section 13 of the Bank Holding Company Act (Volcker Rule). The corrections become effective from August 06, 2019. The final rule (which is being corrected) excludes, from the Volcker Rule, community banks with USD 10 billion or less in total consolidated assets and total trading assets and liabilities of 5% or less of total consolidated assets. US Agencies had adopted this final rule, on July 22, 2019, to amend regulations implementing the Volcker Rule in a manner consistent with the statutory amendments made pursuant to certain sections of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection (EGRRCP) Act.

    In the final rule FR Doc. 2019-15019, beginning on page 35020, the following corrections have been made:

    • On page 35020, in the third column, correct amendatory instruction 11 to read as—“11. Revise paragraph (a)(6) to read as follows:”
    • On page 35021, in the second column, correct amendatory instruction 16 to read as—“16. Revise paragraph (a)(6) to read as follows:”
