The Federal Reserve Board issues as final a rule amending its international lending regulations ( www.federalreserve.gov/boarddocs/press/bcreg/2003/20030106/attachment.pdf ). To simplify matters and thus reduce banks’ regulatory burden, the board’s action eliminates from subpart D of Regulation K the requirement they use a particular method to account for fees on international loans. Instead, the new provision, which took effect February 10, instructs banks to follow GAAP in accounting for such fees.
