OCC Regulations

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.
