Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (205 ILCS 5/48.3) (from Ch. 17, par. 360.2)
    Sec. 48.3. Disclosure of reports of examinations and confidential supervisory information; limitations.
    (a) Any report of examination, visitation, or investigation prepared by the Commissioner under this Act, the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, the Corporate Fiduciary Act, the Illinois Bank Holding Company Act of 1957, and the Foreign Banking Office Act, any report of examination, visitation, or investigation prepared by the state regulatory authority of another state that examines a branch of an Illinois State bank in that state, any document or record prepared or obtained in connection with or relating to any examination, visitation, or investigation, and any record prepared or obtained by the Commissioner to the extent that the record summarizes or contains information derived from any report, document, or record described in this subsection shall be deemed "confidential supervisory information". Confidential supervisory information shall not include any information or record routinely prepared by a bank or other financial institution and maintained in the ordinary course of business or any information or record that is required to be made publicly available pursuant to State or federal law or rule. Confidential supervisory information shall be the property of the Commissioner and shall only be disclosed under the circumstances and for the purposes set forth in this Section.
     The Commissioner may disclose confidential supervisory information only under the following circumstances:
        (1) The Commissioner may furnish confidential
    
supervisory information to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the federal reserve bank of the federal reserve district in which the State bank is located or in which the parent or other affiliate of the State bank is located, any official or examiner thereof duly accredited for the purpose, or any other state regulator, federal regulator, or in the case of a foreign bank possessing a certificate of authority pursuant to the Foreign Banking Office Act or a license pursuant to the Foreign Bank Representative Office Act, the bank regulator in the country where the foreign bank is chartered, that the Commissioner determines to have an appropriate regulatory interest. Nothing contained in this Act shall be construed to limit the obligation of any member State bank to comply with the requirements relative to examinations and reports of the Federal Reserve Act and of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or the federal reserve bank of the federal reserve district in which the bank is located, nor to limit in any way the powers of the Commissioner with reference to examinations and reports.
        (2) The Commissioner may furnish confidential
    
supervisory information to the United States, any agency thereof that has insured a bank's deposits in whole or in part, or any official or examiner thereof duly accredited for the purpose. Nothing contained in this Act shall be construed to limit the obligation relative to examinations and reports of any State bank, deposits in which are to any extent insured by the United States, any agency thereof, nor to limit in any way the powers of the Commissioner with reference to examination and reports of such bank.
        (3) The Commissioner may furnish confidential
    
supervisory information to the appropriate law enforcement authorities when the Commissioner reasonably believes a bank, which the Commissioner has caused to be examined, has been a victim of a crime.
        (4) The Commissioner may furnish confidential
    
supervisory information relating to a bank or other financial institution, which the Commissioner has caused to be examined, to be sent to the administrator of the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act.
        (5) The Commissioner may furnish confidential
    
supervisory information relating to a bank or other financial institution, which the Commissioner has caused to be examined, relating to its performance of obligations under the Illinois Income Tax Act and the Illinois Estate and Generation-Skipping Transfer Tax Act to the Illinois Department of Revenue.
        (6) The Commissioner may furnish confidential
    
supervisory information relating to a bank or other financial institution, which the Commissioner has caused to be examined, under the federal Currency and Foreign Transactions Reporting Act, Title 31, United States Code, Section 1051 et seq.
        (6.5) The Commissioner may furnish confidential
    
supervisory information to any other agency or entity that the Commissioner determines to have a legitimate regulatory interest.
        (7) The Commissioner may furnish confidential
    
supervisory information under any other statute that by its terms or by regulations promulgated thereunder requires the disclosure of financial records other than by subpoena, summons, warrant, or court order.
        (8) At the request of the affected bank or other
    
financial institution, the Commissioner may furnish confidential supervisory information relating to a bank or other financial institution, which the Commissioner has caused to be examined, in connection with the obtaining of insurance coverage or the pursuit of an insurance claim for or on behalf of the bank or other financial institution; provided that, when possible, the Commissioner shall disclose only relevant information while maintaining the confidentiality of financial records not relevant to such insurance coverage or claim and, when appropriate, may delete identifying data relating to any person or individual.
        (9) The Commissioner may furnish a copy of a report
    
of any examination performed by the Commissioner of the condition and affairs of any electronic data processing entity to the banks serviced by the electronic data processing entity.
        (10) In addition to the foregoing circumstances, the
    
Commissioner may, but is not required to, furnish confidential supervisory information under the same circumstances authorized for the bank or financial institution pursuant to subsection (b) of this Section, except that the Commissioner shall provide confidential supervisory information under circumstances described in paragraph (3) of subsection (b) of this Section only upon the request of the bank or other financial institution.
    (b) A bank or other financial institution or its officers, agents, and employees may disclose confidential supervisory information only under the following circumstances:
        (1) to the board of directors of the bank or other
    
financial institution, as well as the president, vice-president, cashier, and other officers of the bank or other financial institution to whom the board of directors may delegate duties with respect to compliance with recommendations for action, and to the board of directors of a bank holding company that owns at least 80% of the outstanding stock of the bank or other financial institution;
        (2) to attorneys for the bank or other financial
    
institution and to a certified public accountant engaged by the State bank or financial institution to perform an independent audit provided that the attorney or certified public accountant shall not permit the confidential supervisory information to be further disseminated;
        (3) to any person who seeks to acquire a controlling
    
interest in, or who seeks to merge with, the bank or financial institution, provided that all attorneys, certified public accountants, officers, agents, or employees of that person shall agree to be bound to respect the confidentiality of the confidential supervisory information and to not further disseminate the information therein contained;
        (4) (blank); or
        (5) to the bank's insurance company in relation to an
    
insurance claim or the effort by the bank to procure insurance coverage, provided that, when possible, the bank shall disclose only information that is relevant to the insurance claim or that is necessary to procure the insurance coverage, while maintaining the confidentiality of financial information pertaining to customers. When appropriate, the bank may delete identifying data relating to any person.
    The disclosure of confidential supervisory information by a bank or other financial institution pursuant to this subsection (b) and the disclosure of information to the Commissioner or other regulatory agency in connection with any examination, visitation, or investigation shall not constitute a waiver of any legal privilege otherwise available to the bank or other financial institution with respect to the information.
    (c) (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act or any other law, confidential supervisory information shall be the property of the Commissioner and shall be privileged from disclosure to any person except as provided in this Section. No person in possession of confidential supervisory information may disclose that information for any reason or under any circumstances not specified in this Section without the prior authorization of the Commissioner. Any person upon whom a demand for production of confidential supervisory information is made, whether by subpoena, order, or other judicial or administrative process, must withhold production of the confidential supervisory information and must notify the Commissioner of the demand, at which time the Commissioner is authorized to intervene for the purpose of enforcing the limitations of this Section or seeking the withdrawal or termination of the attempt to compel production of the confidential supervisory information.
    (2) Any request for discovery or disclosure of confidential supervisory information, whether by subpoena, order, or other judicial or administrative process, shall be made to the Commissioner, and the Commissioner shall determine within 15 days whether to disclose the information pursuant to procedures and standards that the Commissioner shall establish by rule. If the Commissioner determines that such information will not be disclosed, the Commissioner's decision shall be subject to judicial review under the provisions of the Administrative Review Law, and venue shall be in either Sangamon County or Cook County.
    (3) Any court order that compels disclosure of confidential supervisory information may be immediately appealed by the Commissioner, and the order shall be automatically stayed pending the outcome of the appeal.
    (d) If any officer, agent, attorney, or employee of a bank or financial institution knowingly and willfully furnishes confidential supervisory information in violation of this Section, the Commissioner may impose a civil monetary penalty up to $1,000 for the violation against the officer, agent, attorney, or employee.
