The Federal Financial Institution Examination Council (FFIEC) is
a formal interagency body empowered to prescribe uniform
principles, standards, and report forms for the federal examination
of financial institutions by the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve System (FRB), the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC),
the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA),
the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and the
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and
to make recommendations to promote uniformity in the supervision of
financial institutions. In 2006, the State Liaison Committee (SLC) was added to the Council
as a voting member. The SLC includes representatives from the
Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS),
the American Council of State Savings Supervisors (ACSSS),
and the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS).

The FFIEC Examiner Education Office created the FFIEC InfoBase,
which is a vehicle that enables prompt delivery of
introductory, reference, and educational training material on
specific topics of interest to field examiners from the FFIEC
member agencies. The IT Handbooks are updated and maintained
electronically using the InfoBase vehicle.
