FCA Examination Manual
The FCA Examination Manual contains concepts, guidelines, and procedures for the examination of Farm Credit System banks, associations, and service corporations. The manual covers the following steps in the examination process:
- Completion of examination procedures
- Preparation of the Report of Examination
- Follow-up and monitoring
Each step in the process is an important part of FCA’s efforts to ensure the safety and soundness of the FCS.
The manual is divided into several modules representing the broad categories of the examination process. Each module comprises several sections. The modules are as follows:
- Planning and Monitoring
- Reports and Conferences
- Bank Examination
The FCA Examination Manual will be updated as the FCS changes and develops new products and services, and as the examination process evolves to address new risks and changes in laws and regulations.
