OCC releases enforcement actions data

Bank Regulatory Federal Issues OCC Enforcement Bank Compliance

On September 15, the OCC released a list of recent enforcement actions taken against national banks, federal savings associations, and individuals currently and formerly affiliated with such entities. Included in the release is an August 29 formal agreement between the OCC and a Texas-based bank in connection with allegedly unsafe or unsound practices relating to strategic and capital planning, credit risk management, Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) methodology, corporate governance, and internal controls. The agreement requires the bank to: (i) establish a compliance committee to monitor the bank’s progress in complying with the agreement’s provisions; (ii) report such progress to the bank’s board on a quarterly basis; and (iii) develop, implement, and adhere to, among other things, the ALLL Program, the contingency funding plan and any amendments thereto, and the internal audit program and any amendments or revisions thereto.
