IDAHO INTERSTATE BANKING ACT
26-2610. Cooperative agreements. (1) The director is authorized to enter into cooperative and reciprocal agreements with other financial institution regulatory agencies, both federal and state, and from bank supervisory authorities from foreign countries, to facilitate the regulation of financial institutions and financial institution holding companies doing business in this state. The director may accept reports of examinations and other records from such other agencies in lieu of conducting his own examinations of financial institutions controlled by financial institution holding companies located in other states. The director may share examination reports with such other agencies. The director may examine such institutions in Idaho, in the financial institution’s home state or such other location as may be necessary. The director may take any action jointly with other regulatory agencies having concurrent jurisdiction over financial institutions and financial institution holding companies doing business in this state or may take such actions independently in order to carry out his responsibilities.
(2) The director may, in his discretion, enter into agreements with a professional association of which the department is a member. The purposes of such agreements may include the facilitation of examination of banks or bank holding companies operating in other states in addition to Idaho. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, such examination agreements may provide for the exchange of bank information, including examination reports, with such a professional association; provided however, that such communication shall not constitute a public disclosure of such records under chapter 1, title 74, Idaho Code, nor a waiver of the statutory privilege in section 26-1111, Idaho Code.
