The OCC will publish in the Federal Register the first in a series of rules that combine OCC regulations with those of the now-defunct Office of Thrift Supervision, which the OCC absorbed in 2011. Each pair of rules is already “substantively identical,” the OCC said, noting that “their integration will have no substantive effect on banks and savings associations and this rulemaking serves only to simplify the OCC’s rulebook.”
The first set of rules to be formally integrated are those adopted on an interagency basis by the OCC and OTS. They cover consumer protection in insurance sales, the Bank Secrecy Act, management interlocks, appraisals, Community Reinvestment Act-related disclosures and reporting and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
