To: Chief Executive Officers of All National Banks, Federal Savings Associations, and Federal Branches and Agencies; Department and Division Heads; All Examining Personnel; and Other Interested Parties
Description: Revised ‘Foreword’ Booklet and Rescissions
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) issued today the “Foreword” booklet of the Comptroller’s Handbook. The revised booklet replaces the booklet titled “Foreword” issued on May 6, 2013. This booklet describes the overall organization and format of the Comptroller’s Handbook and lists the booklet titles that compose the handbook. The list will change over time because the OCC periodically issues new booklets on various topics. The OCC also issues revised or updated booklets to reflect changes to laws, regulations, and supervisory policy, including any changes resulting from the integration of national bank and federal savings association rules.
As explained in the “Foreword” booklet, for booklets issued after July 2011, the cover pages display version numbers along with publication dates.1 The “Foreword” booklet also explains the difference between revisions and updates. Booklet revisions involve comprehensive changes. Booklet updates are generally limited in scope, and these updates are summarized in table format at the back of each updated booklet.
