The OCC's Foreign Technical Assistance Program

The OCC's Foreign Technical Assistance (FTA) Program, administered by the International Banking sub-division in Bank Supervision Policy, seeks to help foreign supervisors develop, improve, and refine their supervisory systems. The objectives of the program are to:

  • Establish, build and maintain relationships with foreign banking supervisory organizations;
  • Strengthen supervision of our banks with operations internationally; by assisting host countries improve their bank supervision process;
  • Help enhance international expertise of OCC examiners and staff; and
  • Assist with mandates that supervisory authorities lend their resources to various groups to help promote and encourage adoption of international standards by foreign supervisory authorities.
