FDIC updates Enforcement Actions Manual on cease-and-desist, consent orders

The FDIC has updated chapters one and four of its Formal and Informal Enforcement Actions Manual, entitled Overview and Administrative Matters and Cease-and-Desist Actions, respectively, regarding the agency’s minimum standards for terminating cease and desist and consent orders issued under Section 8(b) of the Federal Deposit Insurance (FDI) Act.

Highlights of the changes include a change to Section 8(b) of the FDI Act that authorizes the FDIC to issue a cease-and-desist order, which is titled a “consent order” if the action is not contested, when the facts reasonably support the conclusion that an insured depository institution has engaged, or is about to engage, in

  • An unsafe or unsound practice in conducting the business of the institution, or
  • A violation of a law and/or regulation, written agreement with the FDIC, or written condition imposed by the FDIC in connection with the granting of any application or other request.

Section 8(b) orders may be terminated under any of the following conditions:

  • The institution is in full compliance with all the provisions of the order and has fully corrected the violations of laws and regulations, unsafe and unsound practices, or conditions that led to the issuance of the order.
  • Any provisions deemed “not in compliance” have become outdated or irrelevant to the institution’s current circumstances, including situations in which the institution is closed.
  • Deterioration or any provisions deemed “not in compliance” leads to issuance of a new or revised formal action.
