Dodd-Frank Financial Services Regulatory Reform: NAIC Initiatives
Title I of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Protection and Consumer Protection Act created the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) to monitor the safety and stability of the nation’s financial system, identify risks to the system, and coordinating response to any threats. FSOC has the authority to identify financial firms, financial market utilities and systemic payment, clearing, or settlement activities whose failure could potentially pose a risk to the financial system.
Those identified entities, utilities, and activities are subject to more stringent regulatory standards under the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. The council also facilitates coordination and information-sharing among member agencies, departments and functional regulators.
Peter L. Hartt, Director of New Jersey's Insurance Division is the designated state insurance regulator representative serving on the FSOC. He represents the interests of the nation’s state insurance regulators, providing critical insurance regulatory expertise.
FSOC is composed of 10 voting members:
