The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) is a five-member agency responsible for establishing consistent guidelines and uniform practices and principles for financial institutions. FFIEC guidelines provide financial institutions with expectations for compliance.
The member agencies include 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 Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS).
