F.S. 655.071
655.071 International banking facilities; definitions; notice before establishment.
(1) “International banking facility” means a set of asset and liability accounts segregated on the books and records of a banking organization, as that term is defined in s. 201.23, that includes only international banking facility deposits, borrowings, and extensions of credit, as those terms shall be defined by the commission pursuant to subsection (2).
(2) The commission shall by rule define the terms “deposit,” “borrowing,” and “extension of credit” as they relate to the activities of international banking facilities. These definitions shall take into account all transactions in which international banking facilities are permitted to engage by regulations of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, as from time to time amended. When adopting such rules, the commission shall also consider the public interest, including the need to maintain a sound and competitive banking system, as well as the purpose of this act, which is to create an environment conducive to the conduct of an international banking business in the state.
(3) Before establishing an international banking facility, a state-chartered or state-licensed banking organization shall notify the office in the manner prescribed by rule of the commission.
