The NCUA launched an online Examiner’s Guide Friday, designed as an interactive tool for examiners that provides up-to-date supervisory guidance on key supervisory and regulatory issues. It also includes updated guidance on interest rate risk, risk-focused examinations, total analysis process and fidelity bond coverage.
The guide’s new online format is meant for easy navigation to topics of interest, keyword content search and easier connection to resources provided by NCUA and other regulatory agencies. It also includes a feedback button, allowing stakeholders to provide input and suggestions for additional clarification.
The new format also allows the NCUA to update the Examiner’s Guide continuously, such as in the event of a new law or regulation, changes in agency policy, new products and services or changes in the broader economy.
According to the agency, it will issue updated guidance on other topics over the next year, including on member business lending, consumer and real estate lending, internal controls, asset-liability management, investments and fraud, among others.
Currently, guidance on those topics can be found in the previous Examiner’s Guide.
