Fitch Ratings formally reviewed 99% of its U.S. structured finance ratings over the past 12 months as of August 2010, the rating agency said today.   

Fitch said the reviews was conducted on the back of  rule changes made by the National Association  of  Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) that only allow for U.S. insurers to use structured finance ratings from acceptable rating organizations in certain risk based capital calculations. The ratings are  only acceptable if it can be confirmed that the rating has been reviewed within  the  past  12  months.
