Text of Adopted Amendment to Part 301 of Superintendent's  Regulations

 Amendment to Part 301 of the Superintendent’s Regulations
"Security at Automated Teller Machine Facilities"

Section 301.5, 6 and 7 are renumbered as Section 301.6,7 and 8 and a new Section 301.5 is added to read as follows: 

§301.5 Type and frequency of video tapes for ATM surveillance systems.

    1. Any surveillance camera operated by a banking institution within an automated teller machine facility under its dominion and control as required by section 75-c(1) of the banking law must use a T-120 (commercial/industrial) grade video tape, or a tape of better quality. Such tape shall be used no more than one time (or cycle), from beginning to end, in any 30-day period. Such videotapes shall not be used more than 12 times in total and must be replaced not later than 365 days from the date of its first use. Once such videotape is used, it must be retained for at least a 30 day period prior to reuse.
    2. The intent of this regulation is that a banking institution’s video recording method produce a clear and undistorted picture image. A banking institution may request from the Superintendent of Banks approval of an alternative method of producing images which is at least as effective in meeting this objective as the measures set forth in this regulation.
