This posting, the September 2012 Davis Polk Dodd-Frank Progress Report, is one in a series of Davis Polk presentations that illustrate graphically the progress of the rulemaking work that has been done and is yet to occur under the Dodd-Frank Act. The Progress Report has been prepared using data from the Davis Polk Regulatory Tracker™, an online subscription service offered by Davis Polk to help market participants understand the Dodd-Frank Act and follow regulatory developments on a real-time basis. In this report:
- As of September 4, 2012, a total of 237 Dodd-Frank rulemaking requirement deadlines have passed. Of these 237 passed deadlines, 145 (61.2%) have been missed and 92 (38.8%) have been met with finalized rules.
- In addition, 131 (32.9%) of the 398 total required rulemakings have been finalized, while 132 (33.2%) rulemaking requirements have not yet been proposed.
- Major rulemaking activity this month included the Federal Reserve final rule on risk management standards for financial market utilities and the SEC final rules on conflict minerals and the disclosure of payments by resource extraction issuers. Additionally, the OCC, Federal Reserve, NCUA, FHFA and CFPB released a proposed rule on appraisals for higher-risk mortgage loans.
