The Federal Reserve has published a final rule in regards to Regulation HH, Designated Financial Market Utilities (FMUs). The rule will implement provisions of sections 805(a) and 806(e) of the Dodd-Frank Act. Regulation HH establishes risk management standards governing the operations related to the payment, clearing, and settlement activities of designated FMUs. The rule also establishes standards for determining when a designated FMU is required to provide advance notice of material changes to its rules, procedures, or operations that could materially affect the nature or level of risks presented by the FMU.
The final rule will be effective September 14, 2012.
