FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 30, 1997
Interagency Corporate Forms Available
The four federal banking agencies have adopted three interagency corporate forms that replace and streamline forms that had previously been different for each agency.
Under Section 304 of the Riegle Community Development and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994, the agencies have developed forms that promote consistency and uniformity in a manner that reduces federal regulatory burden on the banking industry. These are the first uniform corporate forms adopted and issued by the agencies.
The forms adopted by the agencies are:
The revised forms will be available from each of the federal banking agencies. On the Internet, they will be available at http://www.occ.treas.gov and at http://www.fdic.gov. In addition, they will be available from the fax-on-demand system at (202) 906-5660 or (202) 479-0141.
The regulatory agencies are continuing to review other corporate forms in their efforts to achieve uniformity and to simplify or eliminate duplicative or outmoded policies or procedures which unnecessarily burden financial institutions.
