Thrifts would be required to inform federal regulators before offering Internet banking services under a proposal unveiled Wednesday.

The Office of Thrift Supervision intends to add the notification requirement to proposed rules letting federal thrifts conduct any activity electronically that they may offer through traditional means. The agency also said it wants authority to impose additional conditions on the electronic operations of thrifts that have been criticized for supervisory or compliance violations. Comments are due Sept. 14.
