About FOIA

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 USC 552, serves as the vehicle to obtain federal agency records, unless the records (or any portion thereof) are protected from disclosure by one of FOIA's nine exemptions or one of its three special law enforcement record exclusions. The OCC's disclosure regulation is located at 12 CFR 4. As a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury, the OCC also complies with Treasury regulations. For further information about the Department of the Treasury's disclosure requirements, visit the Department of the Treasury FOIA site. This Web page provides members of the general public with basic information on how to gain access to records maintained by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

About the Privacy Act

The Privacy Act of 1974, 5 USC 552a, serves as the vehicle whereby individuals can gain access to information about themselves that is maintained in a system of records under the control of a federal agency. If you are requesting records about yourself  or records contained in a Privacy Act system of records please attach the required consent and proof of identity documents to your request before submitting.
