WASHINGTON — The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.'s board of directors will meet Oct. 9 to discuss stress-testing requirements mandated under the Dodd-Frank Act, as well as some tweaks to how the agency charges large-bank premiums.

Like other regulators, the FDIC proposed rules in January for requiring banks it supervises with more than $10 billion of assets to undergo annual stress tests. Under Dodd-Frank, each federal bank regulator must establish stress-testing standards for institutions in that asset class under its watch. This is in addition to required stress tests managed by the Federal Reserve Board for companies with more than $50 billion in assets.
