Fed reducing exam activities proportionate to bank size

Mar 25, 2020

The Federal Reserve Board provided additional information on how it is adjusting its supervisory approach due to the coronavirus. The Fed said it will temporarily reduce its examination activities, with the greatest reduction in activities occurring at the smallest banks.

The Fed also said additional time will be granted for resolving non-critical existing supervisory findings. Meanwhile, large banks are still expected to submit capital plans under the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review by April 6.
