Industrial Loan Companies
Request for Public Comment on Wide-Ranging Issues
August 29, 2006

Summary: The FDIC is seeking public comment on wide-ranging issues involving industrial loan company charters. Comments are due by October 10, 2006.

  • On July 28, 2006, the FDIC's Board of Directors imposed a six-month moratorium on industrial loan company (ILC) deposit insurance applications and change of control notices. The moratorium will expire on January 31, 2007.
  • On August 23, 2006, a Notice and Request for Comment was published in the Federal Register, which includes 12 specific questions on ILCs. The questions cover a variety of topics, including the current legal and business framework of ILCs and the possible benefits, risks and supervisory issues associated with ILCs.
  • The FDIC believes that public participation will provide valuable insight into the issues presented by recent trends and changes in the ILC industry.
  • Comments may be submitted through the FDIC's Web site at http://www.fdic.gov/regulations/laws/federal/propose.html. Comments may also be submitted through e-mail, U.S. Postal Service, or hand-delivery as detailed in the attached Federal Register citation.
