WASHINGTON -- As many as 1,700 community banks with national charters may qualify for streamlined examination procedures outlined Thursday by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

Banks that qualify will be subject to a standardized set of examination procedures that will require less documentation than is currently needed. The procedures will cut down on paperwork and reduce demands on examiners as well, the agency said.
