§ 723.11 How do you obtain a waiver?
To obtain a waiver, a federal credit union must submit a request to the Regional Director (a corporate federal credit union submits the waiver request to the Director of the Office of National Examinations and Supervision). A state chartered federally insured credit union must submit the request to its state supervisory authority. If the state supervisory authority approves the request, the state regulator will forward the request to the Regional Director (or if appropriate the Director of the Office of National Examinations and Supervision). A waiver is not effective until it is approved by the Regional Director (or in the case of a corporate federal credit union the Director of the Office of National Examinations and Supervision). The waiver request must contain the following:
(a) A copy of your business lending policy;
(b) The higher limit sought (if applicable);
(c) An explanation of the need to raise the limit (if applicable);
(d) Documentation supporting your ability to manage this activity; and
(e) An analysis of the credit union's prior experience making member business loans, including as a minimum:
(1) The history of loan losses and loan delinquency;
(2) Volume and cyclical or seasonal patterns;
(4) Concentrations of credit to one borrower or group of associated borrowers in excess of 15% of net worth;
(5) Underwriting standards and practices;
(6) Types of loans grouped by purpose and collateral; and
(7) The qualifications of personnel responsible for underwriting and administering member business loans.
