The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (referred to as the "Comptroller" or the "OCC") is an independent bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The OCC charters, regulates, and supervises all national banks, federal savings associations, and federal branches and agencies of foreign banks. The OCC states that its mission is to supervise banks within its authority to monitor that operate in a safe and sound manner, provide fair access to financial services, treat customers fairly, and comply with applicable law.
This page includes the principal materials directly relevant to the OCC and its regulations. To see similar materials for the other principal banking regulators, see the topic pages for each of the CFPB, the FDIC, the Federal Reserve and the NCUA. See also the Banking Overview topic page.
