SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

We issued a final rule on December 24, 2013, to establish a regulatory framework for the reporting of System accounts and exposures. The final rule established the reporting requirements and performance responsibilities, including, but not limited to, establishing uniform and standard data fields to be collected from all System banks and associations and a disciplined and secure delivery of information. The final rule authorized a Reporting Entity (defined as the Federal Farm Credit Banks Funding Corporation (Funding Corporation) or an entity approved by FCA), to collect data from all banks and associations and serve as the central data repository manager. Additionally, the final rule required all banks and associations to provide data to the Reporting Entity to facilitate the collection, enhancement, and reporting of data to FCA.

The final rule required compliance as of the effective date, which was February 21, 2014, except for the Reporting Entity's requirements under § 621.15(b)(1) through (6). The final rule specified that the compliance date would be delayed for the Reporting Entity's requirements under § 621.15(b)(1) through (6) to allow for the development of and transition to the System's central data repository.

During the System's data repository development phase, the banks and associations continued to prepare and submit the reports of accounts and exposures to FCA in accordance with the instructions prescribed by FCA under § 621.15(a) of the final rule. The Reporting Entity now has the ability to prepare and submit reliable, timely, complete and accurate reporting of accounts and exposures. Therefore, full compliance with all provisions of the final rule is required on October 22, 2014 for accounts and exposures data as of the quarterly period ended September 30, 2014.
