Role of Supervisory Guidance

Role of Supervisory Guidance
Subject: Supervisory guidance
Agency: CFPB, FDIC, Federal Reserve, NCUA, OCC
Status: Final rule

The OCC, Board, FDIC, NCUA, and Bureau (collectively, the agencies) adopted a final rule that codifies the Interagency Statement Clarifying the Role of Supervisory Guidance issued by the agencies on September 11, 2018 (2018 Statement). The 2018 Statement reiterated well-established law by stating that, unlike a law or regulation, supervisory guidance does not have the force and effect of law. As such, supervisory guidance does not create binding legal obligations. The statement is binding on the agencies.
