FDIC Official Sign - 01/08/03 06:52 PM

I know the FDIC sign displayed at teller windows and elsewhere is supposed to be seven inches by three inches. If you continue reading 12 CFR 328.2(b)(2)it says that signs reflecting variations in size may be purchased from a commercial supplier. Does this mean the sign at the teller window doesn't have to be seven inches by three inches????

I read it as the official sign is 7x3. You may get the official sign from the FDIC. You may get the official and other signs elsewhere as well.

But the official sign is 7x3 and it must be displayed appropriately. Unofficial signs may be used elsewhere.
