Printable Format:

FIL-31-2017 - PDF (PDF Help)


The FDIC Risk Management Manual of Examination Policies (Examination Manual) has been updated. The Report of Examination Instructions were updated primarily to incorporate guidance from the FDIC Board of Directors to examiners regarding supervisory recommendations, including matters requiring board attention (MRBA) and deviations from safety and soundness principles underlying statements of policy, among others. Instructions also were added for new Report of Examination schedules or updated for existing schedules as needed. A new Bank of Anytown reflects these instructions. The updated Manual is available on the FDIC's website as a resource for all FDIC-supervised institutions.

Statement of Applicability to Institutions with Total Assets Under $1 Billion: This FIL applies to all FDIC-supervised financial institutions.
