Paragraph (1) does not apply to the creation of an obligation in accordance with a credit scoring program, preapproval credit program, or similar program, if the program was adopted by the board of directors, credit committee, or credit manager and complies with a written lending policy on programs of that type established by the board of directors in accordance with Section 15100.


The credit committee or the credit manager may, with the approval of the board of directors, appoint one or more loan officers who shall be authorized to approve obligations with credit union members.

No loan officers shall be permitted to approve any extension agreement of any obligation or the refinancing of any obligation except as prescribed in regulations promulgated by the commissioner.


The credit committee, or in the alternative, the credit manager shall be provided with a record of each obligation approved or not approved by any loan officer, within 30 days of the approval or disapproval.
