On September 26, 2014, the OCC issued the “Federal Branches and Agencies Supervision” booklet in order to provide updated guidance and examination procedures to both examiners and bankers on the supervision of federal branches and agencies. The booklet also highlights special considerations arising from legal and operational structures that differentiate federal branches and agencies from national banks and addresses new and updated rules and guidance issued by other federal agencies.

The full text of the OCC booklet is available at:
