Section 946 Dodd-Frank Act requires the Financial Stability Oversight Council's (FSOC) chairman, who is Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, to issue a study on the act’s risk retention requirements within 180 days of its enactment.

Separately, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Securities and Exchange Commission are required to jointly prescribe rules implementing the risk retention requirements under Section 941 of the act. FSOC's study is independent of Section 941.
