The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is the primary regulator of banks chartered under the National Bank Act (12 USC 1 et seq.) and federal savings associations chartered under the Home Owners Loan Act of 1933 (12 USC 1461 et seq.). You will find the OCC's regulations, derived from these acts, in the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (click on 1-199 in the Browse Parts column of the table).
Before rules are finalized, the OCC publishes them in the Federal Register for comment. Use the links below to learn more about this process and to view current rules open for comment or finalized rules.
Submit or read comments on public notices.
Read final issuances as published in the Federal Register.
OCC rulemakings are also available at the Federal Register website, and at Regulations.gov, where you can search (by Docket ID, keyword, or date range) for public comments to OCC rulemakings.
Our Legislative and Regulatory Activities (LRA) Division in the Law Department serves as the OCC's counsel on regulatory matters.
