Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996

Welcome to the FDIC EGRPRA Website

The Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996 (EGRPRA) requires that regulations prescribed by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System be reviewed by the agencies at least once every 10 years. The purpose of this review is to identify outdated or unnecessary regulations and consider how to reduce regulatory burden on insured depository institutions while, at the same time, ensuring their safety and soundness and the safety and soundness of the financial system.

The second EGRPRA review is now underway, and we invite you to participate. The scope of the EGRPRA review includes rules that the agencies will have finalized before the publication of the last EGRPRA notice in the series, which is intended to be published by the end of 2015. This review provides an opportunity for the public to consider and comment on these regulations, individually and as a whole.
