OCC says email subscription service ‘suspended’; emails news anyway

Citing only “upgrades” being made as a reason, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) on Thursday issued a notice that it was temporarily suspending its email subscription service, effective Feb. 28 (Friday), and that it expects the service will be restored in 90-120 days.

Even so, the agency still on Friday emailed its release for the agency’s second- and third-quarter Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) evaluation schedule. (As a point of information, that schedule includes 142 banking institutions up for evaluations under the anti-redlining statute.)

Back to the agency’s subscription service: Thursday’s notice said another message will be sent when the service is back up. The agency encouraged use of its website and social media channels to keep up with its news and information in the meantime.

It appears the notice was only provided via email and has not shown up in the OCC’s website “newsroom.”
