On January 28, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) announced that it would halt publication of its “fair access” rule, which would have prevented national banks from denying services to any individual customer unless justified by that customer’s documented failure to meet quantitative, impartial risk-based standards established by the bank. The rule, which was finalized by the OCC on January 14 and would have gone into effect on April 1, will be set aside for review by the next confirmed Comptroller of the Currency under the current administration. Release.
