The Weekly Bulletin is a record of applications received and actions taken by the Comptroller of the Currency for national banks.
You can download plain text files of individual weekly bulletins by date or use the Corporate Applications Search (an enhancement to and replacement for the Corporate Applications Activity System (CAAS)) to search for an application by bank name, charter number, OCC control number, application type, or OCC action.
Applications submitted by and decisions regarding Federal savings associations are available at:
Most applications appear in the bulletin at least twice—once when they are received and then again when they are acted upon. Some application types appear a third time, when the transaction is consummated or the location opened. Typically, notices appear when the transactions are effective, although branch closings usually appear when the OCC receives notice of the proposed closing, as well as at final closing.
Each bulletin is a record for the seven-day period ending on the report date. The record includes receipts, actions, and consummations/openings processed during the week. Because notices are often received after the consummation or opening dates, some of the activity in the bulletin may have happened in a previous seven-day period. Additionally, filings are sometimes amended (see Addendum section) or corrected (see Correction section), so the record may include corrections to applications or notices that appeared in a previous bulletin.
Each filing is assigned an OCC control number. The control number is a unique identifier for each filing. When requesting information or discussing the application with the OCC, it is helpful to reference the control number.
Public Comments on Applications
Written comments on a corporate filing should be submitted to the District Licensing Office where the bank filed the original application. A complete list of district contact information and a district map is available at Application Contacts. For more information, refer to the "Public Comment" section in the Public Notice and Comments (PDF) booklet in the Comptroller's Licensing Manual. The OCC will accept comments through the latter of: 1) the newspaper publication comment period end date; 2) 30 days from the publication of the merger application in the Weekly Bulletin; or 3) 30 days from the date the merger application is posted to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) Reading Room.
To view the public comment period end date for a filing by a national bank for a merger, consolidation, or purchase and assumption, see the Weekly Merger Public Comment Period Report (PDF).
To view the public portion of the merger application, visit the FOIA Reading Room and search Merger Application.
Inquiries related to filing corporate applications and notices involving most national banks or Federal savings associations, except certain "Large Banks" and foreign banks should be directed to the District Licensing Office where the bank or savings association is headquartered.
Inquiries related to filing corporate applications and notices involving selected national banks in the Large Bank Program should be directed to Large Bank Licensing in Washington, DC at (202) 649-6260.
Inquiries regarding Federal branches and agencies of foreign banks should be directed to the Northeastern District Licensing Office.
Much of the information contained in corporate applications is available to the public. Copies of the non-confidential portions of these applications and information about where they can be viewed are available by contacting the District Licensing Office where the application was filed.
Copies of older corporate applications may be obtained by contacting the OCC's Communications Division at FOIA-PA@occ.treas.gov. or by making a request through the agency's FOIA site.
