SUBJECT: Compliance Manuals on the Internet

The FDIC's Division of Compliance and Consumer Affairs has posted the following documents, in electronic versions, to the Internet:

  • FDIC Compliance Examination Handbook (FIL-49-96). This manual is designed as a job performance aid for field examiners conducting compliance and Community Reinvestment Act examinations. The 1,500-page document is currently searchable using Adobe Acrobat software and will soon have enhanced search capabilities.

  • Mortgage Loan Prequalifications: Applications or Not? (6kb, PDF file - PDF help or hard copy) (FIL-35-96). This guide is designed to help FDIC-regulated institutions comply with Regulations B and C, and answers many questions about mortgage loan prequalification programs. It also helps institutions to minimize technical and substantive violations commonly encountered in routine compliance exams. The document is searchable using Adobe Acrobat software.

  • SIDE-BY-SIDE, A Guide to Fair Lending (FIL-36-96). This guide offers suggestions on how an institution can compare its treatment of loan applicants through self-assessment, which can help prevent and detect illegal discrimination. This document is searchable using Adobe Acrobat software.
