Pursuant to Arizona Administrative Code R20-4-104, the Superintendent has the discretion to accept alternative application forms, but it does not limit the Superintendent’s power to require additional information necessary to complete an application.

As a general rule for banks, and in a Federal/State cooperative effort to cut down on duplicate application submission, a copy of the application submitted to the appropriate federal agency is the acceptable form to submit to AZDFI.  For Non- Member banks contact FDIC.  For Member banks contact FRB.

Please refer to Arizona Revised Statutes §§6-101 through 6-395 and Arizona Administrative Code R20-4-201 through R20-4-215 for Arizona Law.   Please contact your chosen federal regulator for specific questions on federal laws and regulations.

DIFI is not authorized to give or offer legal advice. If you need help with a legal matter, you may want to consider contacting a private attorney.   Inquiries should be directed to Financial Institutions at  [email protected]

Examination

The Department utilizes the C.A.M.E.L.S. (Capital Adequacy, Asset Quality, Management Quality, Earnings, Liquidity and Sensitivity to Market Risk) rating system as a primary tool in the regulation of all state-chartered banks. This rating system examination format is used to maintain consistency with our federal counterparts, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Bank and the Comptroller of the Currency.


Proactive supervision and examinations ensure that AZDFI maintains a credible, responsive and sound regulatory environment for all bank depositors within the State of Arizona.
