The Farm Credit Administration (FCA) published a final rule under part 650 on April 12, 2001 (66 FR 19048). In this final rule, we amended our regulations, through the Office of Secondary Market Oversight (OSMO), by establishing risk-based capital regulations for the Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (Farmer Mac). The final rule in part 650 sets forth the risk-based capital regulations for Farmer Mac, including definitions, methods, parameters and guidelines for developing and implementing the risk-based capital stress test; specifies capital calculation, reporting, and compliance requirements; and delineates our monitoring, examination, supervisory, and enforcement activities with respect to Farmer Mac's compliance with the rule's risk-based capital requirements; and prescribes certain requirements for business and capital planning. In accordance with 12 U.S.C. 2252, the effective date of the final rule is 30 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register during which either or both Houses of Congress are in session. Based on the records of the sessions of Congress, the effective date of the regulations is May 23, 2001.
