The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) recently announced the official launch of its Regulatory Calendar for Community Banks. The online calendar is intended to help community banks stay up-to-date with changes in federal banking laws, regulations, and supervisory guidance. The calendar will include notices of rulemakings, effective dates for regulations, and guidance issued by various federal regulators of interest to FDIC-regulated entities. The calendar will also provide information on FDIC outreach initiatives and other regulatory information of interest. Links to underlying documents and resources will be provided in the calendar entries. The calendar release follows the FDIC’s publication of an earlier beta version last summer that was used to solicit public feedback.

The FDIC has issued guidelines regarding the removal of confidential records from bank locations by directors and officers. Although directors and officers require access to such records to properly manage an institution, such access cannot be used to further personal interests. These guidelines were promulgated in response to a number of instances where directors and officers have made copies of bank and supervisory records in anticipation of litigation or enforcement activities against them personally.
