§ 723.20How can a state supervisory authority develop and enforce a member business loan regulation?
(a) The NCUA Board may exempt federally insured state chartered credit unions in a given state from NCUA's member business loan rule if NCUA approves the state's rule for use for state chartered federally insured credit unions. In making this determination, the Board is guided by safety and soundness considerations and reviews whether the state regulation minimizes the risk and accomplishes the overall objectives of NCUA's member business loan rule in this part. Specifically, the Board will focus its review on:
(1) The definition of a member business loan;
(2) Loan to one borrower limits;
(3) Written loan policies;
(4) Collateral and security requirements;
(5) Construction and development lending; and
(6) Loans to senior management.
(b) To receive NCUA's approval of a state's member business loan rule, the state supervisory authority must submit its rule to the NCUA regional office. After reviewing the rule, the region will forward the request to the NCUA Board for a final determination.
(c) A state supervisory authority that administers a state member business loans rule, approved by NCUA under §§ 723.20(a) and (b), may rescind its rule without NCUA approval. A state supervisory authority should notify NCUA if it anticipates rescinding its rule to foster regulatory continuity and cooperation.
