AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of the Treasury is removing chapter V of title 12, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), which contains regulations of the former Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS). The OTS, a Bureau of the Department of the Treasury, was abolished effective October 19, 2011, and its rulemaking authority and operative rules were transferred to other agencies pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Because those agencies have issued regulations that supersede chapter V, chapter V is no longer necessary. DATES: Effective October 11, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Description of Final Rule The OTS, a Bureau of the Department of the Treasury, was abolished by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act or Act) 1 on October 19, 2011.

Chapter V of title 12 of the CFR sets out the OTS regulations. Several parts of chapter V relate to the administrative functions of the OTS. Because the OTS was abolished, those parts are inoperative. The remaining parts of chapter V concern the supervision and examination of savings associations and savings and loan holding companies. Since the abolishment of the OTS, the Agencies have republished those OTS regulations they will enforce in their own chapters of title 12.2 In order to eliminate the confusion that may arise from having inoperative and superseded regulations of an abolished agency published in the CFR, the Department of the Treasury is removing chapter V of title 12 of the CFR. Notice and Comment The Administrative Procedure Act (APA) generally requires public notice and an opportunity to comment before an agency issues a final rule.3 However, notice and comment are not required before issuing a final rule if the rulemaking relates to agency organization, procedure, or practice or if an agency, for good cause, finds that ‘‘notice and public procedure thereon are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ The Department of the Treasury finds that notice and comment are not required with respect to the removal of the parts of chapter V that govern the organization and administrative functions of the OTS because those 2 See, e.g., 76 FR 48950 (August 9, 2011) (republishing regulations relating to savings associations in chapter I of title 12); 76 FR 47652 (August 5, 2011) (republishing regulations relating to State savings associations in chapter III of title 12); 76 FR 56508 (September 13, 2011) (republishing regulations relating to savings and loan holding companies in chapter II of title 12); 76 FR 44226 (July 22, 2011) (republishing regulations relating to the Alternative Mortgage Transaction Parity Act and the Truth in Lending Act in chapter X of title 12); 76 FR 78487 (December 19, 2011) (republishing regulations relating to the S.A.F.E.
