    OCC Updates Booklets of the Comptroller's Handbook

    May 16, 2019

    OCC updated the “Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act” (RESPA) booklet and the “Foreword” booklet of the Comptroller's Handbook. The RESPA booklet provides guidance and procedures to examiners in connection with changes made by CFPB to Regulation X (12 CFR 1024), which implements the RESPA. The "Foreword" booklet describes the overall organization and format of the Comptroller’s Handbook.

    The main changes to the RESPA booklet relate to the implementation of the mortgage servicing rule of CFPB and to the clarification and amendment of provisions of Regulation X, which took effect from October 19, 2017, as well as provisions related to successors in interest, which took effect April 19, 2018. The booklet also reflects changes resulting from the final rule on integrated mortgage disclosures, which became effective on October 03, 2015.

    With the issuance of RESPA booklet, the following documents are rescinded:

    • Version 1.0 of the “Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act” booklet (April 14, 2015).
    • OCC Bulletin 2015-25, “Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act: Revised Comptroller’s Handbook Booklet and Rescissions” (April 14, 2015).
    • OCC Bulletin 2015-27, “Consumer Compliance: Revised Interagency Examination Procedures for Consumer Compliance” (May 1, 2015).
    • OCC Bulletin 2015-42, “Consumer Compliance: Initial Examinations for Compliance With TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule” (November 6, 2015).

    The updated "Foreword" booklet replaces version 2.0 of the “Foreword” booklet issued on September 07, 2017. Also rescinded is OCC Bulletin 2017-36, “Comptroller’s Handbook: Revised Foreword Booklet and Rescissions.” The Comptroller’s Handbook is designed to guide examiners in performing consistent, high-quality, professional bank supervision across the spectrum of OCC-supervised banks. The Comptroller’s Handbook is organized into five series, with the Safety and Soundness being the only series that is divided into categories. The seven categories under Safety and Soundness are Capital Adequacy, Asset Quality, Management, Earnings, Liquidity, Sensitivity to Market Risk, and Other Activities.
