The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has published in the Federal Register its final rule to implement several technical and conforming changes to the OCC's Annual Stress Test regulation (12 CFR 46). The final rule changes the range of possible "as-of" dates used in the global market shock component to conform to changes recently made by the Federal Reserve Board to its stress testing regulations. The final rule also changes the transition period for an institution that becomes an over $50 billion covered institution. Finally, the final rule makes certain technical changes to clarify the requirements of the OCC's stress testing regulation.
