About the Application Process

Certain activities require approval from the Commissioner or the Kansas State Banking Board prior to banks and trust companies proceeding with a transaction. Kansas banking statutes and regulations outline the required application procedures, as well as the information to be included and the criteria used to make the decision. Applications are reviewed to assess compliance with applicable statutes and regulations; the affect the proposed transaction will have on the operation and condition of the institution; and how the transaction will affect Kansas consumers. The time frame required to process an application is dependent on the type and complexity of the transaction. Additionally, a filing fee is required for most applications per K.S.A. 9-1726, and can be found within each application form provided below. Public notification of certain applications is required via local area newspapers, and links to sample publication outlines are available below.

All applications, subject to limitations imposed by federal or state statutes, are available to members of the public. The Kansas Open Records Act (K.S.A. 45-215 et seq.) exempts from public disclosure “records the disclosure of which is specifically prohibited or restricted by federal law, state statute or rule of the Kansas Supreme Court…” Information exempt from public disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) is also exempt from disclosure under the Kansas Open Records Act. Information for which confidential treatment is requested should be separately bound and labeled “Confidential.”

Contact with the bank’s federal regulator should also be made to determine applicable requirements.
