(205 ILCS 620/5-2) (from Ch. 17, par. 1555-2)
    Sec. 5-2. Examinations of corporate fiduciaries.
    (a) The Commissioner, no less frequently than 18 months following the preceding examination, and whenever in his judgment it is necessary or expedient, either personally or by one or more competent persons appointed by him, shall visit and examine every corporate fiduciary in this State and may, to the extent the Commissioner determines necessary, examine the affairs of the corporate fiduciary's subsidiaries, affiliates, parent companies and contractual service providers for fiduciary services of the corporate fiduciary as shall be necessary to fully disclose the condition of such subsidiaries, affiliates, parent companies and contractual service providers and the relation between the corporate fiduciary and such subsidiaries, affiliates, parent companies and contractual service providers and the effect of such relations upon the affairs of such corporate fiduciary. Instead of the Commissioner making the examination provided by this subsection or appointing a competent person to do so, the Commissioner may accept on an alternating basis the examination made by the corporate fiduciary's appropriate federal regulatory agency, provided the appropriate federal regulatory agency has made such an examination. Fiduciary services shall include, but not be limited to, clerical, accounting, bookkeeping, statistical, data processing, safekeeping or similar functions for a corporate fiduciary.
    (b) The Commissioner and every such examiner may administer an oath to any person whose testimony is required on any such examination, and compel the appearance and attendance of any such person for the purpose of examination, by summons, subpoena or attachment, in the manner now authorized in respect to the attendance of persons as witnesses in the circuit court; and all books and papers which are necessary to be examined by the Commissioner or examiner so appointed shall be produced, and their production may be compelled in like manner.
    (c) The expense of every examination, if any, shall be paid by the corporate fiduciary examined, in such amount as the Commissioner certifies to be just and reasonable.
    (d) On every examination, inquiry shall be made as to the condition and resources of the corporate fiduciary generally, the mode of conducting and managing its affairs, the action of its directors or trustees, the investments of its funds, the safety and prudence of its management, the security afforded to those by whom its engagements are held, and whether the requirements of its charter and of the laws have been complied with in the administration of its affairs. The nature and condition of the assets in or investment of any bonus, pension, or profit sharing plan for officers or employees of a corporate fiduciary shall be deemed to be included in the affairs of that corporate fiduciary subject to examination by the Commissioner.
    (e) Whenever any corporate fiduciary causes to be performed, by contract or otherwise, any fiduciary services for itself, whether on or off its premises:
        (1) such performance shall be subject to examination
by the Commissioner to the same extent as if the services were being performed by the corporate fiduciary itself on its own premises; and
        (2) the corporate fiduciary shall notify the
Commissioner of the existence of the service relationship. Such notification shall be submitted within 30 days after the making of such service contract, or the performance of the service, whichever occurs first. The Commissioner shall be notified of each subsequent contract in the same manner.
    For purposes of this subsection (e), the term "fiduciary services" shall include such services as the computation and posting of interest and other credits and charges; preparation and mailing of checks, statements, notices and similar items; clerical, bookkeeping, accounting, statistical or similar functions; and any other function which the corporate fiduciary, in the ordinary course of its business, could have performed itself.
    Any report of examination pursuant to this Section and any copies thereof shall be the property of the Commissioner, confidential and may only be disclosed under the circumstances set forth in Section 48.3 of the Illinois Banking Act, as now or hereafter amended.
