The Supervisory Policy and Guidance Topics page contains Federal Reserve guidance and other resources that are targeted at supervised financial organizations and supervisory staff. The website provides policy and guidance information in a central location allowing users to quickly find relevant resources to answer common questions on banking supervision. Selecting one of the topics listed below directs users to a page containing:

  • a brief overview of the topic and links to related supervisory topics;
  • active supervision and regulation (SR) letters on a specific topic or subtopic (obsolete letters or letters that contain confidential supervisory information are not included);
  • pertinent sections in the supervisory manuals, such as the Commercial Bank Examination Manual and the Bank Holding Company Supervision Manual; and
  • other topically relevant supervisory guidance material not issued through an SR letter, such as interagency examination procedures or other policy statements.
