L. 111-203, 124 Stat. 1376, 1423-32, 12 U.S.C. 5365 and 5366) and section 11(s) of the Federal Reserve Act (12 U.S.C. 248(s)).

(1) Any bank holding company having total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more, as defined below;

(2) Any savings and loan holding company having total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more, as defined below; and

(3) Any nonbank financial company supervised by the Board, as defined below.

(c) Purpose. This part implements provisions of section 318 of the Dodd-Frank Act that direct the Board to collect assessments, fees, or other charges from companies identified in paragraph (b) of this section that are equal to the total expenses the Board estimates are necessary or appropriate to carry out the supervisory and regulatory responsibilities of the Board with respect to these assessed companies.

(d)(1) Reservation of authority. In exceptional circumstances, for the purpose of avoiding inequitable or inconsistent application of the rule, the Board may require an assessed company to pay a lesser amount of assessments than would otherwise be provided for under this Part.

(2) Use of comparable financial information. The Board may use, at its discretion, any comparable financial information that the Board may require from a company in considering whether the company must pay to the Board an assessment and the amount of such assessment, pursuant to section 318 of the Dodd-Frank Act.
