Inactive Supervisory Guidance

SR 16-9
April 21, 2016

TO THE OFFICER IN CHARGE OF SUPERVISION AT EACH FEDERAL RESERVE BANK

SUBJECT:

Inactive Supervisory Guidance

Applicability to Community Banking Organizations:  This letter applies to all organizations supervised by the Federal Reserve, including community banking organizations with $10 billion or less in total consolidated assets.

The purpose of this letter is to announce that Federal Reserve staff are making certain previously issued Supervision and Regulation (SR) letters inactive.  Most SR letters identified in the attachment have been determined to be inactive and no longer applicable to the Federal Reserve’s supervision program.  In many cases, the information transmitted in these issuances was a point-in-time announcement, or has become outdated, or has been superseded by subsequent regulations, policies, and guidance.  In some instances, letters were made inactive because more comprehensive guidance on the topic can be located in the Commercial Bank Examination Manual or the Bank Holding Company Supervision Manual.  The attachment lists the letters deemed inactive and provides a brief explanation indicating why each letter has been made inactive.

Questions or comments about the inactive status of any of these letters or concerns that they may contain supervisory guidance of continuing relevance should be addressed to Virginia Gibbs, Manager, Policy Implementation and Effectiveness, at (202) 452-2521, or Alex Kobulsky, Supervisory Financial Analyst, at (202) 452-2031, in the Division of Banking Supervision and Regulation.  In addition, questions may be sent via the Board’s public website.1
