Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 USC 552, is the vehicle to obtain federal agency records, unless the records (or any portion thereof) are protected from disclosure by one of the FOIA's nine exemptions or by one of its three special law enforcement record exclusions. The OCC's disclosure regulation is located at 12 CFR 4. As a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury, OCC complies with Treasury regulations.

Note: Effective July 21, 2011, the Office of Thrift Supervision became part of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency; as of this date please submit all FOIA requests relating to federal savings institutions and thrifts to the OCC.
