**Title 12 published on 2015-01-01**

The following are **ALL** rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to *12 CFR Part 327* **after** this date.

GPO FDSys XML | Text type regulations.gov FR Doc. 2015-16514 RIN 3064-AE37 FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) and request for comment. Comments must be received by the FDIC no later than September 11, 2015. 12 CFR Part 327 The FDIC is proposing to amend 12 CFR part 327 to refine the deposit insurance assessment system for small insured depository institutions that have been federally insured for at least 5 years (established small banks) by: revising the financial ratios method so that it would be based on a statistical model estimating the probability of failure over three years; updating the financial measures used in the financial ratios method consistent with the statistical model; and eliminating risk categories for established small banks and using the financial ratios method to determine assessment rates for all such banks (subject to minimum or maximum initial assessment rates based upon a bank's CAMELS composite rating). The FDIC does not propose changing the range of assessment rates that will apply once the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF or fund) reserve ratio reaches 1.15 percent; thus, under the proposal, as under current regulations, the range of initial deposit insurance assessment rates will fall once the reserve ratio reaches 1.15 percent. The FDIC proposes that a final rule would go into effect the quarter after a final rule is adopted; by their terms, however, the proposed amendments would not become operative until the quarter after the DIF reserve ratio reaches 1.15 percent.
