Effective July 21, 2011, Title III of the Dodd-Frank Act abolished the Office of Thrift Supervision. Title III, also known as the “Enhancing Financial Institution Safety and Soundness Act of 2010,” is intended to streamline banking regulation and reduce competition and overlaps between different regulators.
As of July 21st, regulatory supervisory responsibility for federally chartered thrifts and savings associations transferred to the OCC. Those with state charters are now supervised by the FDIC. In light of the transfer of powers, documents that include federal enforcement agency address information must be updated. As of July 21, 2011, the following addresses will apply to thrifts and savings associations:
