Uniform Application
California and Interstate
Application Instructions
I. GENERAL INFORMATION
A version of this "Uniform Application" was developed by the State/Federal Working Group for
the purpose of reducing regulatory burden, by elimination of the need for banks to file
multiple different application forms for common applications. By providing the information in
this application/notice, applicant will meet the requirements of the California Department of
Business Oversight. It is expected that a version of this application form will be adopted by
the FDIC, FRB and all other State Banking Departments in the future. In the minority of cases
where additional information is required, you will receive a separate request for additional
information to supplement the application. You may also use the top part of this form for filing
a "Notice" where no formal application is required.
II. FILING INSTRUCTIONS
File one copy of this application with the California Department of Business Oversight in the
regional office where you are located. If application involves an interstate activity, there is no
need to file a separate application with any state except your home state.
Banks with a CAMELS rating of 1 or 2 are exempt from the application process, and need
only file the top part of the form as a notice or report and answer Application Detail #2.
III.
TYPE OF APPLICATION
Check the appropriate box for establishment, relocation, or discontinuance. Also check
whether the application concerns a "branch office"; "place of business" other than a branch
office such as a "loan production office" (LPO) or representative office; or an automated
service location such as a stand alone automated teller machine, or cash dispensing
machine. The activity conducted at the location will determine whether the office is
considered a "branch" under state or federal statutes. Note if form is being used to file a
report of an exempted transaction.
IV.
APPLICANT INFORMATION
A. Name and Address: Bank's full name and headquarters office address.
B. Correspondent:
Provide the name and address of the individual the bank wants to
handle any inquiries or requests concerning this application.
C. Popular Name:
Please indicate the popular or official name of the office or
proposed office such as "Main Street Office" or "Produce Mart Office."
D. Proposed Location: Provide the complete street address of the location where the
bank wishes to establish or relocate a new physical facility.

E. Address of Office

existing facility, provide the address of the location where the
business will be discontinued.
For additional information on the application process, you may wish to contact the Assistant
Deputy Superintendent assigned to your bank.
V.
APPLICATION DETAILS
Answers to the following questions should be provided in letter form and attached to
the application's cover sheet. The questions need only be completed if the applicant is
required to file an application or notice of discontinuance. Your response should
address all statutory requirements.
1.
Only a brief description is necessary, such as "full service branch", or "mortgage loan
origination". It is not necessary to provide a complete laundry list of proposed
activities, but just the principal purpose of the office.
2.
If the proposed transaction will result in the purchase or lease of any asset from an
"insider" (officer, director or 10 percent equity security holder) or one of his/her
interests, or will result in the payment of money to an "insider" or one of his/her
interests for services, please provide details.
3.
Provide an affirmative statement as to why the proposed transaction meets relevant
standards for public convenience and advantage. Brief comments such as "will be
adding new services" or "new competitor to the area" will generally be sufficient. In
cases where the public benefit from the transaction becomes more problematic, the
response will call for greater detail of the perceived benefits.
4.
California and your primary federal regulator have requirements for public notification
of the establishment, and particularly the discontinuance, of any branch office. In
response to this question, please provide information concerning what public
notification steps have been undertaken or contemplated. Your response will be
evaluated in relation to statutory requirements. Some relocations may be considered
branch closures, and subject to the customer notice requirement of 90 days specified
in the "FFIEC Policy Statement Concerning Branch Closing Policies" issued in
September 1993.
5.
"The Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act" makes initial entry,
and subsequent branch expansion, subject to the laws of the individual states where
the branch is to be located. If the state where the branch is to be located imposes
limitations on the establishment of branch offices, please provide an affirmative
statement that the proposed branch office will be in compliance with any restrictions in
existence.

The following three questions apply only to applications involving the establishment of
new branches to comply with specific federal requirements. These questions need not
be answered for applications filed only with the California Department of Business
Oversight.
6.
The primary federal regulator, and many state regulators, are required to consider the
bank's compliance with the Community Reinvestment Act ("CRA"), or a state
equivalent, before approving new branch offices. If the bank's most recent "CRA"
evaluation was not at least satisfactory, you must provide detailed justification as to
why the deficiencies in the bank's "CRA" evaluation should not preclude approval of
the branch application. Where the bank's most recent CRA evaluation was "Needs to
Improve" or worse, you should consult with your appropriate regulator before filing an
application for a branch office.
7.
Banks not members of the Federal Reserve System should provide an affirmative
statement as to whether the site is included in or eligible for inclusion in the National
Register of Historic Places. In the case of applications to establish or relocate a
branch office, please provide evidence that clearance has been obtained from the
State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO). FDIC will act on applications prior to
obtaining SHPO clearance; however, such approvals will be expressly conditioned
upon obtaining clearance.
8.
Please provide an affirmative statement that the establishment of the proposed branch
office will be in compliance with any relevant local zoning ordinances. For banks not a
member of the Federal Reserve System, also briefly indicate the effect upon local
traffic patterns.
