Incorporation of Existing Statement of Policy Regarding Requests for Participation in the Affairs of an Insured Depository Institution by Convicted Individuals (Section 19)

Title:
Incorporation of Existing Statement of Policy Regarding Requests for Participation in the Affairs of an Insured Depository Institution by Convicted Individuals
Subject: Section 19
Agency: FDIC
Status: Final rule
Summary:
Section 19 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act requires persons convicted of certain criminal offenses to obtain prior written consent before participating in the conduct of the affairs of any depository institution. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is revising its existing regulations relating to section 19 to revise the FDIC’s procedures and standards relating to applications for the FDIC’s written consent, and to incorporate and revise the FDIC’s existing Statement of Policy for Section 19 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (SOP). Incorporating the SOP into the FDIC’s regulations will make application of the SOP more transparent, increase certainty concerning the FDIC’s application process, afford regulatory relief, and help both insured depository institutions and affected individuals to understand the impact of section 19 and to potentially seek relief from it. The FDIC’s existing SOP will be rescinded on the date this final rule (rule) becomes effective.
