OCC Guidelines Establishing Standards for Recovery Planning by Certain Large Insured National Banks, Insured Federal Savings Associations, and Insured Federal Branches: Notice of Proposed Rulemaking


Chief Executive Officers of All National Banks, Federal Savings Associations, and Federal Branches and Agencies; Department and Division Heads; All Examining Personnel; and Other Interested Parties


The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is proposing to revise its guidelines establishing standards for recovery planning by certain large insured national banks, federal savings associations, and federal branches (recovery planning guidelines) at 12 CFR 30, appendix E. The OCC invites the public to comment on all aspects of the proposal. Comments are due on August 2, 2024.

Note for Community Bank

The proposal would not apply to OCC-supervised institutions with less than $100 billion in average total consolidated assets.


The proposal would

  • expand recovery planning guidelines to apply to insured national banks, federal savings associations, and federal branches with at least $100 billion in assets.
  • incorporate a testing standard for recovery plans.
  • clarify the role of nonfinancial risk (including operational and strategic risk) in recovery planning.
