The orders and statements below were approved in connection with activities under §24 of the F.D.I. Act, Part 362 of the FDIC's regulations, and in some cases also under §18(l) of the F.D.I. Act and Part 347 of the FDIC's regulations. While most of the post-1997 orders and statements set out below are derived from official sources, there are many older pre-1997 orders and statements issued under § 24 that were scanned from archived files.
