Description: Rescission of Office of Thrift Supervision Compliance Documents
As part of its ongoing implementation of title III of the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, and as outlined in OCC Bulletin 2011-47, “OTS Integration: Supervisory Policy Integration Process,”1 the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is rescinding2 the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) compliance documents listed in appendix A. The OCC is also applying policy guidance listed in appendix B to federal savings associations (FSA) in cases where policy guidance did not already exist. OTS policies and guidance related to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Community Reinvestment Act, unfair and deceptive acts and practices, and mortgage regulations will be addressed at a later date.
Please direct any questions to Kimberly Hebb, Director for Compliance Policy, or Eric Gott, Compliance Policy Specialist, at (202) 649-5470.

1 OCC Bulletin 2011-47, “OTS Integration: Supervisory Policy Integration Process,” outlines the process that the OCC intends to follow to fully integrate the OTS policy guidance documents into a common set of supervisory policies that apply to both national banks and FSAs.
2 These rescissions apply only to the documents as they relate to national banks and FSAs. With respect to the application of these documents to state savings associations or savings and loan holding companies, contact the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the respective regulators of these institutions.
