The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is extending the comment period for proposed guidance on third-party lending. Comments on the proposed guidance, which was published on July 29, now must be received on or before October 27. The 45-day extension was made in response to requests from interested parties who asked for additional time to consider the proposal.
The proposed third-party lending guidance outlines the risks that may be associated with third-party lending as well as the expectations for a risk-management program, supervisory considerations, and examination procedures related to third-party lending.
Comments should be sent to email@example.com and will be posted on the FDIC’s website at https://www.fdic.gov/regulations/laws/publiccomments/.
