(1) A record-keeping deficiency is serious if the commissioner reasonably believes that the board of directors and management of the credit union have not timely met financial reporting objectives and established practices and procedures sufficient to safeguard members' assets. (2) A serious recordkeeping deficiency is persistent when it continues beyond a usual, expected or reasonable period of time. (c) Verification obligation. The board of directors shall, at least once every two years, cause the share, deposit, and loan accounts to be verified against the records of the credit union as prescribed in §741.202(b) of the National Credit Union Administration's Rules and Regulations (12 CFR, Chapter VII, Part 741).
