  • The ANPR was published in the Federal Register on October 26, 2016, and comments are due by January 17, 2017.
  • The ANPR applies to:
    • Any national bank, federal savings association (and any subsidiaries thereof), or federal branch of a foreign bank that is a subsidiary of a bank holding company or savings and loan holding company with total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more;
    • Any national bank, federal savings association, or federal branch of a foreign bank that has total consolidated assets of $50 billion or more and does not have a parent holding company; and
    • Any third-party service provider with respect to services provided to any covered national bank or federal savings association (or any subsidiaries thereof).
  • The ANPR is not applicable to community banks
  • Banks regulated by the above-mentioned agencies are required to ensure that the services they receive from third-parties are conducted with the same standards that would apply if the bank conducted the operations itself-therefore, the proposed enhanced standards would apply to all operations, even those serviced by third-parties.
