To provide greater transparency into the FDIC's examination processes, the FDIC Division of Risk Management Supervision has updated the Risk Management Manual of Examination Policies (Manual) by inserting Part VI, Appendix: Examination Processes and Tools, Examination Documentation Modules. The Examination Documentation Modules were developed in 1997 to provide examiners with tools to identify and assess the range of matters considered during examination activities, and they are updated periodically. The Modules direct examiners to use a risk-focused approach in conducting examination activities, thereby facilitating an efficient and effective supervisory program.
