OCC releases enforcement actions
On May 18, 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. Among the enforcement actions is a consent order against an Indiana-based bank for allegedly engaging in unsafe or unsound practices relating to, among other things, its strategic and capital planning, risk management processes, audit program, and consumer compliance program (including alleged violations of TILA and Regulation Z). In addition to complying with measures to address the alleged deficiencies, the bank (which neither admits nor denies the allegations) is also required to submit written consumer compliance policies and procedures designed to ensure compliance with TILA and Regulation Z. The bank also must undergo an independent compliance review and audit and ensure bank officers and employees are appropriately trained.
