Title: Prior Approval of Enterprise Products 

The proposed rule would implement the Director's authority, found at section 1321 of the Federal Housing Enterprises Financial Safety and Soundness Act of 1992, as amended (12 U.S.C. 4501 et seq.), to establish a process for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to obtain prior approval from the Director to approve a new product and to provide prior notice of a new activity. An interim final rule on this subject at 12 CFR 1253, 74 FR 31602 (July 2, 2009) is currently in effect. The proposed rule, when final, would replace the interim final rule.
