Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices; Technical Amendments
Document Number: 2014-22715
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-03
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) repealed NCUA's rulemaking authority under the Federal Trade Commission Act (FTC Act). As a result, the NCUA Board (Board) is now repealing NCUA's regulations governing unfair or deceptive acts or practices. The Board is also making a number of technical amendments to other NCUA regulations to conform them to the agency's current central and field office structures. Additionally, the Board is amending NCUA's payday alternative loans regulation to replace all references to ``short-term, small amount loans'' and ``STS loans'' with corresponding references to ``payday alternative loans'' and ``PAL loans.'' The latter terms more accurately reflect the nature and purpose of this loan product.

Federal Credit Union Ownership of Fixed Assets
Document Number: 2014-18524
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-08-11
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (Board) proposes to amend its regulation governing federal credit union (FCU) ownership of fixed assets to provide regulatory relief and to help FCUs better manage their fixed assets. The proposed rule provides greater flexibility to FCUs by removing the waiver requirement for FCUs to exceed the five percent aggregate limit on investments in fixed assets. An FCU that chooses to exceed the five percent aggregate limit may do so without prior NCUA approval, provided it implements a fixed assets management (FAM) program that demonstrates appropriate pre-acquisition analysis to ensure the FCU can afford any impact on earnings and net worth levels. An FCU's FAM program is subject to supervisory scrutiny and must provide for close ongoing oversight of fixed assets levels and their effect on the financial performance of the FCU. It must also include a written policy that sets an FCU board-established limit on the aggregate amount of the FCU's fixed assets. In addition, the proposal simplifies the partial occupancy requirement for premises acquired for future expansion.

Asset Securitization
Document Number: 2014-14926
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-26
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (Board) proposes to amend its regulations to clarify that a natural person federal credit union (FCU) is authorized to securitize loans that it has originated, as an activity incidental to the business for which an FCU is chartered, provided the transaction meets certain requirements. The proposed rule would also apply those requirements to federally insured, state-chartered credit unions (FISCUs) that are permitted by state law to securitize their assets.
Safe Harbor
Document Number: 2014-14919
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-26
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (``Board'') proposes to amend its regulations regarding the treatment by the Board, as liquidating agent or conservator (the ``liquidating agent'' or ``conservator,'' respectively) of a federally insured credit union (``FICU'') of financial assets transferred by the credit union in connection with a securitization or a participation. The proposed rule continues the safe harbor for financial assets transferred in connection with securitizations and participations in which the financial assets were transferred in compliance with the existing regulation and defines the conditions for safe harbor protection for securitizations and participations for which transfers of financial assets would be made after the effective date of this proposed rule.
Appraisals-Availability to Applicants and Requirements for Transactions Involving an Existing Extension of Credit
Document Number: 2014-14889
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-26
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
As part of NCUA's Regulatory Modernization Initiative, the NCUA Board (Board) is proposing to revise two of NCUA's regulations regarding appraisals. Firstly, the Board is proposing to amend NCUA's regulations to eliminate the now duplicative requirement that federal credit unions (FCUs) make available, to any requesting member/ applicant, a copy of the appraisal used in connection with that member's application for a loan secured by a first lien on a dwelling. A recent amendment to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) Regulation B requires that all creditors, including FCUs, now automatically provide applicants with free copies of all appraisals and other written valuations developed in connection with an application for a loan to be secured by a first lien on a dwelling. Secondly, the proposed rule would amend NCUA's appraisal regulations by expanding the current exemption for certain transactions involving an existing extension of credit. Under the expanded exemption, federally insured credit unions (FICUs) would be able to refinance or modify a real estate-related loan held by the FICU, without having to obtain an appraisal, if there is no advancement of new monies or if there is adequate collateral protection, even with the advancement of new monies. The proposal would also make a minor technical amendment to the definition of the term ``application.'' These changes will modernize NCUA's regulations by better aligning them with the modern marketplace, while also reducing costs for FICUs and their members, and removing outdated regulatory requirements.

Regulatory Publication and Review Under the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996
Document Number: 2014-12739
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-04
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (Board) is beginning its second, comprehensive review of its regulations to identify outdated, unnecessary, or burdensome regulatory requirements imposed on federally insured credit unions, as contemplated by section 2222 of the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996 (EGRPRA). In accordance with EGRPRA, the Board has categorized its regulations for the purpose of the review and proposes to publish categories of regulations for public comment at regular intervals over the next two years. The categories, and the regulations that the Board considers to be part of those categories, are detailed below. This review presents a significant opportunity to consider the possibilities for burden reduction in groups of similar regulations. The Board welcomes comment on the categories, the order of review, and all other aspects of this initiative in order to maximize the review's effectiveness. In 2003, the Board commenced an initial review of all its regulations pursuant to EGRPRA, a process that ended in 2006. Today, the Board initiates its second EGRPRA review by issuing the first in a series of four requests for public comment, comprising two of the categories``Applications and Reporting'' and ``Powers and Activities.'' We will address the remaining eight categories in the next three requests for comment.

Chartering and Field of Membership Manual
Document Number: 2014-09812
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-05-01
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (Board) proposes to amend the associational common bond provisions of NCUA's chartering and field of membership rules. Specifically, the amendments establish a threshold requirement that an association not be formed primarily for the purpose of expanding credit union membership. The amendments also expand the criteria in the totality of the circumstances test, which is used to determine if an association, which satisfies the threshold requirement, also satisfies the associational common bond requirements and qualifies for inclusion in a federal credit union's (FCU) field of membership (FOM). The amendments will help to ensure FCU compliance with membership requirements. Additionally, NCUA proposes to grant automatic qualification under the associational common bond rules to certain categories of groups that NCUA has approved in the past after applying the totality of the circumstances test.

Prompt Corrective Action-Risk-Based Capital
Document Number: 2014-01702
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-02-27
Agency: National Credit Union Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The NCUA Board (Board) is proposing to amend NCUA's regulations regarding prompt corrective action (PCA) to restructure the part, and make various revisions, including replacing the agency's current risk-based net worth requirements with new risk-based capital requirements for federally insured ``natural person'' credit unions. The proposed risk-based capital requirements would be more consistent with NCUA's risk-based capital measure for corporate credit unions and the regulatory risk-based capital measures used by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and Office of the Comptroller of Currency (Other Federal Banking Regulatory Agencies). In addition, the proposed revisions would revise the risk- weights for many of NCUA's current asset classifications; require higher minimum levels of capital for federally insured natural person credit unions with concentrations of assets in real estate loans, member business loans (MBLs) or higher levels of delinquent loans; and set forth the process for NCUA to require an individual federally insured natural person credit union to hold higher levels of risk-based capital to address unique supervisory concerns raised by NCUA. The proposed revisions would also eliminate several of NCUA's provisions, including provisions relating to regular reserve accounts, risk- mitigation credits, and alternative risk-weights.

NCUA is publishing this technical correction to correct an inadvertent burden calculation which appeared in prior notices published in the Federal Register and was also submitted to OMB for its Truth in Savings Act (TISA) information collection (OMB control number 3133-0134). The initial burden estimate is being reduced as described in question 12 of the TISA Supporting Statement, which also reduces the estimated annual burden hours. The erroneous calculation listed the estimated total annual burden hours at 43,456,180,359 hours. The amended submission, which contains the corrected burden hours, lists 9,899,116 estimated total annual burden hours (which combines the one- time annual burden of 2,759,929 hours and the continuing annual burden of 7,139,187 hours). NCUA calculated the burden hours using total estimated number of credit union members nationwide. This notice is published to notify the public of the correct burden calculations and to inform the public that, on November 7, 2013, NCUA amended its original submission to OMB with the corrected burden calculations shown in this notice below. Amended changes will be reflected at www.reginfo.gov after the collection has concluded the approval process. 12. Burden estimate: \1\

Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, National Credit Union Administration, Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System
The OCC, Board, FDIC, NCUA, CFPB, and SEC (each an ``Agency'' and collectively, the ``Agencies'') are proposing joint standards for assessing the diversity policies and practices of the entities they regulate. Section 342 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (``Dodd-Frank Act'') \1\ directed the establishment of an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (``OMWI Office'') in each Agency. Each OMWI Office is headed by a Director and is responsible for all Agency matters relating to diversity in management, employment, and business activities. Section 342(b)(2)(C) directs each Agency's OMWI Director to develop standards for assessing the diversity policies and practices of entities regulated by that Agency. This proposed interagency policy statement (``Statement'') identifies these proposed standards and requests comment on all aspects of this Statement.
