Periodically, we receive questions regarding “federally regulated commercial lending institutions” in the licensing and certification requirements of some tribal-state compacts.

We consider an entity regulated by one of the following four federal agencies to be a “federally regulated commercial lending institution”

  1. Office of Comptroller
  2. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
  3. Office of Thrift Supervision
  4. Federal Reserve

You can use the above links to locate the proposed lender to verify the entity is federally regulated. A subsidiary of a proposed lender will most likely require certification under some tribal-state compacts even if the parent corporation is regulated by one of the federal agencies listed above.
