Notice of Inflation Adjustments for Civil Money Penalties

AGENCY: Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Treasury.

ACTION: Notice of Monetary Penalties 2018.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is 
providing notice of its maximum civil money penalties as adjusted for 
inflation. The inflation adjustments are required to implement the 
Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, as amended by 
the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act 
of 2015.

DATES: The adjusted maximum amount of civil money penalties in this 
notice are applicable to penalties assessed on or after January 12, 
2018, for conduct occurring on or after November 2, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin Korzeniewski, Counsel, 
Legislative and Regulatory Activities Division, (202) 649-5490, or, for 
persons who are deaf or hearing impaired, TTY, (202) 649-5597, Office 
of the Comptroller of the Currency.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces changes to the maximum 
amount of each civil money penalty (CMP) within the OCC's jurisdiction 
to administer to account for inflation pursuant to the Federal Civil 
Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990 (the 1990 Adjustment 
Act),\1\ as amended by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment 
Act Improvements Act of 2015 (the 2015 Adjustment Act).\2\ Under the 
1990 Adjustment Act, as amended, federal agencies must make annual 
adjustments to the maximum amount of each CMP the agency administers. 
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is required to issue guidance 
to federal agencies no later than December 15 of each year providing an 
inflation adjustment multiplier (i.e. the inflation adjustment factor 
agencies must use) applicable to CMPs assessed in the following year. 
The agencies are required to publish their CMPs, adjusted pursuant to 
the multiplier provided by OMB, by January 15 of the applicable year.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Public Law 101-410, Oct. 5, 1990, 104 Stat. 890, codified at 
28 U.S.C. 2461 note.
    \2\ Public Law 114-74, Title VII, section 701(b), Nov. 2, 2015, 
129 Stat. 599, codified at 28 U.S.C. 2461 note.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To the extent an agency has codified a CMP amount in its 
regulations, the agency would need to update that amount by regulation. 
However, if an agency has codified the formula for making the CMP 
adjustments, then subsequent adjustments can be made solely by 
notice.\3\ Contemporaneous with this notice, the OCC also submitted for 
publication a final regulation to remove the now-outdated CMP amounts

[[Page 1658]]

from its regulations, while updating those amounts for inflation 
through this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See OMB Memorandum M-18-03, ``Implementation of the 2018 
annual adjustment pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation 
Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015,'' at 4, which permits 
agencies that have codified the formula to adjust CMPs for inflation 
to update the penalties through a notice rather than a regulation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On December 15, 2017, the OMB issued guidance to affected agencies 
on implementing the required annual adjustment, which included the 
relevant inflation multiplier. The OCC has applied that multiplier to 
the maximum CMPs allowable in 2017 for national banks and federal 
savings associations in 12 CFR 19.240(c) and 109.103(c), respectively, 
to calculate the maximum amount of CMPs that may be assessed by the OCC 
in 2018.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Penalties assessed for violations occurring prior to 
November 2, 2015, will be subject to the maximum amounts set forth 
in the OCC's regulations in effect prior to the enactment of the 
2015 Adjustment Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following charts provide the inflation-adjusted CMPs for use 
beginning on January 12, 2018, pursuant to 12 CFR 19.240(c) and 
109.103(c) for conduct occurring on or after November 2, 2015:
