Ohio Receives Grand Slam with Accreditation

July 15, 2021 – The National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) is proud to announce Ohio has earned Re-Accreditation following a series of in-depth reviews and assessments by a panel of veteran state supervisors.

The Ohio Department of Commerce/Division of Financial Institutions to be the first state supervisory authority to become accredited under all four accreditation programs: credit union (via the NASCUS Accreditation Program), bank (via CSBS), mortgage and money service business (MSB, also both via CSBS).

More than 88% of the $989 billion in state-chartered credit union assets are supervised by NASCUS’ 28 accredited state agencies.

“Accreditation is direct evidence of an agency’s capabilities and benefits all credit unions in the state as well,” said NASCUS President and CEO Lucy Ito. “It recognizes the professionalism of a state agency’s regulators, supervisors, and staff, while potentially delivering an impetus and support for legislation to modernize state law and policy changes to advance state supervisory processes and best practices.”

NASCUS accreditation is a robust process that includes disciplined self-evaluation, peer review, and ongoing monitoring. The process, administered by the NASCUS Performance Standards Committee (PSC), measures a state regulatory agency’s ability and resources to carry out its regulatory and supervisory programs effectively.
