(1) The Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services shall examine each credit union to determine its condition and whether the credit union is complying with the laws of this state and such other matters as the director may prescribe. For the purpose of conducting an examination or any part thereof, the director may employ an independent consultant determined by the director as qualified to conduct examinations. Except as provided in subsection (3) of this section, examinations under this subsection must be conducted not less frequently than 24 months apart.

(2) For purposes of an examination under subsection (1) of this section:

(a) Each credit union and all of its officers and agents shall be required to give to representatives of the director full access to all of the credit union’s books, papers, securities, records and other sources of information under their control.

(b) The director may subpoena witnesses, administer oaths, compel the giving of testimony and require the submission of documents.

(3) Instead of an examination under subsection (1) of this section, the director may accept an examination or report made by an agency of the United States Government under statutes of the United States.

(4) A report of an examination under subsection (1) of this section shall be forwarded to the executive officer of each credit union within 60 days after completion. The report shall contain comments relative to the management of the affairs of the credit union and also as to the general condition of its assets. Within 45 days after the receipt of the report, the directors and supervisory committee members shall meet to consider matters contained in the report and shall report in writing to the director on the manner in which the credit union is complying or will comply with the director’s recommendations.
