F.S. 663.402
663.402 Applicability of the financial institutions codes.
(1) An international trust entity that operates an office licensed under this part is subject to all the financial institutions codes as though such international trust entity were a state trust company, except when it appears, from the context or otherwise, that such provisions are clearly applicable only to trust companies organized under the laws of this state or the United States. Without limiting the foregoing general provisions, it is the intent of the Legislature that the following provisions are applicable to such international trust entities having offices in this state: s. 655.031, relating to administrative enforcement guidelines; s. 655.032, relating to investigations, subpoenas, hearings, and witnesses; s. 655.0321, relating to restricted access hearings, proceedings, and related documents; s. 655.033, relating to cease and desist orders; s. 655.037, relating to removal of a financial institution-related party by the office; s. 655.041, relating to administrative fines and enforcement; s. 655.50, the Florida Control of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing in Financial Institutions Act; and any law for which the penalty is increased under s. 775.31 for facilitating or furthering terrorism.
(2) An international trust entity does not have any greater right under, or by virtue of, this section than is granted to trust companies organized under the laws of this state. Legal and financial terms used in this chapter are deemed to refer to equivalent terms used by the country in which the international trust entity is organized. This chapter and the financial institutions codes may not be construed to authorize any international trust entity to conduct trust business, as defined in s. 658.12, from an office in this state.
