FCA handbook

The online FCA Handbook includes selected statutes, regulations, and FCA board policy guidance applicable to the Farm Credit System, FCA, and the Farm Credit System Insurance Corporation (FCSIC).

The handbook is available free of charge as a searchable online database, whose components appear in the menu to the left. We also provide PDF files of some of the components of the handbook:

For a current listing of the updates made to the handbook, see FCA Handbook updates, which is revised monthly.

Note: The Statutes at Large and the U.S. Code are the official publications of statutory provisions, and the Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations are the official sources for regulations. If there are any inconsistencies between an official publication of a statutory provision or regulation and the documents available on the FCA website, the official publication is controlling.
