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
