FHFA Examination Manual (the Manual) comprises an overview of the examination process and 25 modules that provide examination instructions and work programs organized by risk category or line of business or activity.
FHFA will update the Manual from time to time to reflect evolving examination practices, supervisory expectations, and regulated entity operations, as well as changes in regulatory requirements.
Supplemental examination guidance focuses on specific business lines, products, or discrete topics which may apply to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the Federal Home Loan Banks, or the Office of Finance. Supplemental guidance modules complement the modules in the
FHFA Examination Manual.
FHFA's examiners use a uniform rating system for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks.
The examiners employ a risk-focused rating system under which each regulated entity and the Office of Finance is assigned a common composite rating based on an evaluation of various aspects of its operations.
FHFA expects that regulated entities will produce all FHFA requested information and data notwithstanding privileges or other protections the regulated entity attaches to the information and data. Production to FHFA is compulsory and enforceable with administrative sanctions.Policy Statement
