The OCC issued guidance on appealable matters in a revised policy permitting national banks and federal savings associations to appeal supervisory decisions and actions. The June 7 guidance clarifies that appealable matters include but are not limited to examination ratings, adequacy of allowance for loan and lease loss methodology, individual loan ratings and violations of law, among other matters.

Nutter Notes: The guidance also listed certain matters that may not be appealed under the revised policy, including preliminary examination conclusions communicated to the bank before a final report of examination or other written communication from the OCC is issued, and any formal enforcement-related actions.
