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


The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) issued today the “Changes of Corporate Title and Address” booklet of the Comptroller’s Licensing Manual, which revises the booklet of the same title issued in October 2009. The revised booklet incorporates updated procedures and requirements following the integration of the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) into the OCC in 2011 and the issuance of revised regulations (12 CFR 5) that became effective July 1, 2015.

Note for Community Banks

This booklet applies to all national banks and federal savings associations (FSA).


The revised “Changes of Corporate Title and Address” booklet

  • outlines requirements to notify the OCC when a national bank or FSA changes its legal corporate title.
  • outlines requirements to notify the OCC of address changes to a bank’s main office, home office, branch, or mailing address.
  • describes prerequisites required to make changes to a national bank’s articles of association or an FSA’s charter to reflect a name change or location change, if applicable.
