Community Reinvestment Act Regulations
The Comptroller of the Currency proposes to replace the current Community Reinvestment Act rule with rules based on the 1995 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rules, as revised, issued by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board), and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The proposal would replace the existing rule applicable to both national banks and savings associations with two separate rules, one for national banks and one for savings associations. Such action would effectively rescind the CRA final rule published by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency on June 5, 2020, and facilitate the issuance of joint CRA rules with the Board and FDIC.
Proposed Interagency Guidance on Third-Party Relationships: Risk Management
On July 19, 2021, the Board, FDIC, and OCC (together, the agencies) published in the Federal Register an invitation to comment on proposed guidance on managing risks associated with third-party relationships. The notice provided for a comment period ending on September 17, 2021. In response to commenters' requests for additional time to analyze and respond to the proposal, the agencies are extending the comment period for 30 days until October 18, 2021.
