Enforcement Actions

The OCC may take enforcement actions for violations of laws, rules or regulations, final orders or conditions imposed in writing; unsafe or unsound practices; and for breach of fiduciary duty by institution-affiliated parties (IAPs). We are authorized to take enforcement actions against:

  • National banks,
  • Federally chartered savings associations and their subsidiaries
  • Federal branches and agencies of foreign banks, and
  • IAPs, including officers, directors, employees, controlling stockholders, agents, and certain other individuals

Enforcement actions and agreements are available to the public. Search for these using our Enforcement Actions Search Tool.

Note: Enforcement actions taken against federally chartered savings associations prior to July 21, 2011, are only available in the OTS Enforcement Order Archive (XLS). For information about the data fields used in this spreadsheet, refer to the Enforcement Order Listing Definitions (PDF).

To obtain a paper copy of an order, agreement, or directive, you may submit a request electronically through the OCC's online FOIA site.
