Retail Foreign Exchange Transactions
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is adopting an interim final rule authorizing Federal savings associations and their operating subsidiaries to engage in off-exchange transactions in foreign currency with retail customers, subject to the requirements enumerated in the OCC's retail forex rule. The rule implements the provision of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requiring that these transactions be conducted by national banks and Federal savings associations (and their respective operating subsidiaries) only pursuant to an authorizing regulation issued by the OCC. It is substantively the same as the rule the OCC has adopted with respect to national banks and their operating subsidiaries.
List of Office of Thrift Supervision Information Collections Transferred to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System Pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act
On July 21, 2010, President Barack Obama signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act). As part of the comprehensive package of financial regulatory reform measures enacted, Title III of the Dodd-Frank Act transfers the powers, authorities, rights and duties of the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) to other banking agencies, including the OCC and the Board on the ``transfer date.'' The transfer date is one year after the date of enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act, July 21, 2011. The Dodd-Frank Act also abolishes the OTS ninety days after the transfer date. As a result of the Dodd-Frank Act, OTS transferred all of its information collections to either the OCC or the Board, as appropriate.
