What We Do
Who We Are
The certification process involves a search of files maintained in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Particular attention is given to structural changes brought about by mergers, purchase and assumption transactions, consolidations, corporate title changes, amendments to articles of association, and the establishment of branches.
Documents Certified by the OCC
All certifications are one-page documents.
Because of the extensive research required to identify and prepare documents for certification, we are unable to meet unreasonably short deadlines. Most certification requests are processed within 20 business days from the date we receive the request.
Charges are $100 per certificate. Duplicates are $10 each. Prepayment is required. Requesters will get faster service if they include the OCC charter or docket number of the bank or federal savings association.
Submit requests for certified documents to:
Comptroller of the Currency
Requests by telephone are not accepted. Verbal confirmation of an institution's corporate existence is not provided.
