Compliance and guidance

Our goal is to issue regulations that protect consumers and promote fair, transparent, and competitive markets. We’ve created a variety of resources and tools to help financial institutions, service providers, and other entities understand and implement these rules. We also provide guidance materials on ongoing statutory and regulatory compliance.

In addition, we provide resources and tools to help entities within our jurisdiction, including those we supervise, become familiar with our supervision and the examination process. We also share trends we’ve observed in the course of our supervisory activities.

Implementation and guidance

Guides, bulletins, videos, tools and other support materials to help entities understand, implement, and comply with our rules.

Supervision and examinations

Learn more about our supervisory authority and understand how our regional offices conduct examinations and assess compliance with federal consumer financial law.

Supervisory Highlights

We periodically publish Supervisory Highlights to share key examination findings and to help the entities we supervise limit risks to consumers and comply with federal consumer financial law. Our Supervisory Highlights do not refer to any specific institution in order to maintain the confidentiality of supervised entities.
