Farm Credit Administration.
Announcement of effective date.
The Farm Credit Administration (FCA) published a final rule under parts 611, 612, 614, 615, and 620 on September 13, 2005 (70 FR 53901). This final rule amended our regulations governing preferred stock issued by Farm Credit System (System) banks, associations, and service corporations and became effective on November 3, 2005 (70 FR 67901). However, we delayed the effective date of §§ 612.2165(b)(12)-(15), 615.5245(a), and 615.5270(d) for 6 months from the effective date of the final rule in order to allow System institutions with existing preferred stock programs to adopt the policies and procedures necessary to comply with the rule. This document announces the effective date of those portions of the rule.
Effective Date: The effective date for §§ 612.2165(b)(12)-(15), 615.5245(a), and 615.5270(d) is May 3, 2006.Start Further Info
