1121.15 Maintaining books and accounts.

(A) The superintendent of financial institutions may prescribe the manner and form of keeping the books and accounts of banks, so the books and accounts may be as nearly uniform as circumstances permit.

(B) Any person that, by contract or otherwise, performs services for a bank or trust company or a representative office, agency, or branch licensed under Chapter 1119. of the Revised Code, whether on or off the premises of the bank, trust company, representative office, agency, or branch, is subject to examination by the superintendent as to the books and records of the bank, trust company, representative office, agency, or branch in the person's possession, to the same extent as if the services were being performed by the bank, trust company, representative office, agency, or branch itself. For the purposes of this division, "services" includes clerical, bookkeeping, accounting, statistical, and other services. A bank, trust company, representative office, agency, or branch shall notify the superintendent in writing whenever another person is performing services of this kind for the bank, trust company, representative office, agency, or branch, or the bank, trust company, representative office, agency, or branch changes the person performing the services.
