Chapter 370

< > Effective - 28 Aug 2011 bottom

  370.102.  Confidentiality oath required, exceptions — confidentiality of information. — 1.  To ensure the integrity of the examination process, the director of the division of credit unions and all employees of the division of credit unions, and its special agents, shall be bound under oath to keep secret all facts and information obtained in the course of all examinations and investigations except:

  (1)  To the extent that the public duty of the director requires the director to report information to another government official or agency or take administrative or judicial enforcement action regarding the affairs of a state-chartered credit union;

  (2)  When called as a witness in a court proceeding relating to such state-chartered credit union's safety and soundness or in any criminal proceeding;

  (3)  When reporting on the condition of the state-chartered credit union to the officers and directors of the state-chartered credit union;

  (4)  When reporting findings to a complainant, provided the disclosure is limited to such complainant's account information;

  (5)  When exchanging information with any agency which regulates financial institutions under federal law or the laws of any state when the director of the division of credit unions determines that the sharing of information is necessary for the proper performance by the director of the division of credit unions and the other agencies, that such information will remain confidential as though subject to section 370.101 and this section and that said agencies routinely share information with the division of credit unions;

  (6)  When authorized by the state-chartered credit union's board of directors to provide the information to anyone else; or

  (7)  When disclosure is necessary or required, the director may set conditions and limitations, including an agreement of confidentiality or a judicial or administrative protective order.

  2.  In all other circumstances, facts and information obtained by the director of the division of credit unions and the employees and special agents of the division of credit unions through examinations or investigations shall be held in confidence absent a court's finding of compelling reasons for disclosure.  Such finding shall demonstrate that the need for the information sought outweighs the public interest in free and open communications during the examination or investigation process.  To assure a meaningful hearing, any state-chartered credit union that is not already a party to the judicial proceeding and whose information is the subject of a records request or subpoena shall be joined or notified and permitted to intervene in the hearing and to participate regarding the production request or subpoena.  In no event shall a state-chartered credit union, or any officer, director, or employee thereof, be charged with libel, slander, or defamation for any good faith communications with the director of the division of credit unions or any employees of the division of credit unions.
