Compliance Examination Manual

October 9, 1997


SUBJECT: Revision to the Division of Compliance and Consumer Affairs' Compliance Examination Manual

The Division of Compliance and Consumer Affairs (DCA) is pleased to announce the availability of the first revision to its Compliance Examination Manual, published on April 30, 1996. The revision, dated March 31, 1997, will be mailed to all current manual holders.

The manual covers the compliance/Community Reinvestment Act examination policies and functions performed by DCA, along with overviews, objectives and procedures. DCA rewrote the manual in 1996 as part of an effort initiated two years earlier to streamline the examination process.

The March 31, 1997, revision includes new chapters that were in progress during the initial release of the 1996 manual. These chapters are "Interim Monitoring System," "General Report Processing," "Bank of Anytown Report Summary Format," and "MAPPS and Data Analysis." Other new information contained in the revision includes:

  • Revised examination procedures for FDIC's Part 339 (Flood Insurance),

  • Revised examination procedures for the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation M (Consumer Leasing),

  • Interagency Questions and Answers for the Community Reinvestment Act, and

  • Interagency Questions and Answers for Flood Insurance.

The revision is in loose-leaf format and will easily insert into the Volume I and Volume II binders.

The manual continues to be structured around the examination process, from pre-examination planning to report preparation. This reflects the logical flow of the examination process and the actual procedures performed by examiners. The format allows for regulatory requirements that apply to specific transactions to be integrated into the manual along the transactions' timelines.

The fee for the manual's two-volume set is $100 and includes all future updates. The manual is also available on the Internet at A CD ROM version of the manual is now being tested. Information about the CD ROM version will be provided in an upcoming financial institution letter (FIL).

For further information about the manual's content, please call our Consumer Hotline at 800-934-3342 or your DCA Regional Office at the telephone number provided on the attached list.
