17:9A-260. Examination of banks by commissioner
260. A. The commissioner shall, whenever and as often as the commissioner shall deem it advisable, cause the affairs of every bank, and every out-of-State bank with a branch office in New Jersey, to be examined to determine whether the bank or out-of-State bank is conducting its business in conformity with the laws of this State and its certificate of incorporation, and with safety to its depositors, other creditors and the public.
B.The officers and employees of every bank and out-of-State bank being examined shall exhibit to the examiners all its securities, books, records and accounts and shall otherwise facilitate the examination so far as it may be in their power.
C.The commissioner, a deputy commissioner, and every examiner assigned by the commissioner or by a deputy commissioner to examine the affairs of a bank or out-of-State bank may administer an oath to any person whose testimony is required for the purposes of the examination. The commissioner or deputy commissioner may compel the appearance of any person for the purposes of examination, by subpoena ad testificandum and the production of books, papers, documents, or other records by subpoena duces tecum.
D.For banks or out-of-State banks with branches in New Jersey and one or more states, the commissioner may contract with the state banking regulator in the other state or states where branch offices are located to conduct cooperative exams. Pursuant to those agreements, examiners of the department may examine branch offices of banks and out-of-State banks both in New Jersey and in other states, and examiners of other state banking regulators may examine branch offices of bank and out-of state- banks both in New Jersey and in other states. The fees for these examinations may be shared pursuant to a contract or agreement among the regulators.
