OTS Integration: Rescission of OTS Documents


Chief Executive Officers of All National Banks, Federal Branches and Agencies, Federal Savings Associations, Department and Division Heads, and All Examining Personnel

As part of its ongoing implementation of Title III of the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is rescinding1 the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) documents listed in the attached table.

Our goal is to produce one common set of supervisory policies that will apply to both federal savings associations and national banks, while recognizing differences anchored in statute. The rescinded documents and the OCC documents that you should use in their place, if any, are listed in the attached table. The reason each document is rescinded is noted as one of the following:

  • Outdated – The document is no longer needed. Any attachments to the document are rescinded only as they relate to national banks and federal savings associations.
  • Duplicative – The document transmitted interagency guidance that was issued jointly with the OCC. The rescission applies to the transmitting document only and not the attached interagency guidance. Thrifts are directed to use the OCC-issued document.
  • Conveyance – The document is a cover letter that merely conveyed another document. The rescission does not change the applicability of the conveyed document. To determine the applicability of the conveyed document, please refer to the original issuer of the document.
  • Replaced – The document and any attachments are superseded by OCC guidance.

John C. Lyons, Jr.
Senior Deputy Comptroller for Bank Supervision Policy
and Chief National Bank Examiner


 1 These rescissions apply only to the documents as they relate to national banks and federal savings associations. With respect to the application of these documents to state savings associations or savings and loan holding companies, please contact the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the respective regulators of these institutions.
