Administration means the National Credit Union Administration.

Board means the Board of the National Credit Union Administration.

Credit Union means a credit union chartered under the Federal Credit Union Act or, as the context permits, under the laws of any State.

(iv) The probability of a further potential loss to the insurance fund is negligible.

(2) For purposes of this section, the following definitions are used:
