National Credit Union Administration July 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Permissible Investments for Federal Credit Unions
Document Number: E6-11908
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-26
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
NCUA is proposing to amend its investment rules to allow federal credit unions to enter into investment repurchase transactions in which the instrument consists of first-lien mortgage notes. The proposed amendment establishes a credit concentration limit, minimum credit rating, requirement for an independent assessment of market value, a maximum term, and custodial requirements for the transactions.
Loan Interest Rates
Document Number: E6-11907
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-26
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
NCUA is amending its lending rule to include the criteria the NCUA Board considers in setting a permissible interest rate for federal credit unions exceeding 15 percent and to establish procedures regarding publication of its determination. The amendment will allow NCUA to notify federal credit unions of any increase in the interest rate ceiling through a Letter to Federal Credit Unions, other NCUA publications, and a press release, instead of issuing an amendment to the regulation every 18 months as it has previously done. The amendment will eliminate unnecessary, periodic regulatory amendments and provides a more efficient and effective means of informing federal credit unions of the permissible interest rate.

The OCC, Board, FDIC, OTS, NCUA and FTC (the Agencies) request comment on a proposal that would implement sections 114 and 315 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACT Act). As required by section 114, the Agencies are jointly proposing guidelines for financial institutions and creditors identifying patterns, practices, and specific forms of activity, that indicate the possible existence of identity theft. The Agencies also are proposing joint regulations requiring each financial institution and creditor to establish reasonable policies and procedures for implementing the guidelines, including a provision requiring credit and debit card issuers to assess the validity of a request for a change of address under certain circumstances. In addition, the Agencies are proposing joint regulations under section 315 that provide guidance regarding reasonable policies and procedures that a user of consumer reports must employ when such a user receives a notice of address discrepancy from a consumer reporting agency.
