The Federal Reserve promotes the safety and soundness of individual financial institutions and monitors their impact on the financial system. It is responsible for supervising—monitoring, inspecting, and examining—certain financial institutions to ensure that they comply with rules and regulations, and that they operate in a safe-and-sound manner. The Federal Reserve supervises bank holding companies, savings and loan holding companies, the U.S. operations of foreign banking organizations, and state member banks of varying size and complexity.
The Federal Reserve Board publishes its semiannual Supervision and Regulation Report to inform the public and provide transparency about its supervisory and regulatory policies and actions as well as current banking conditions. Previous reports are available at https://www.federalreserve.gov/publications/supervision-and-regulation-report.htm.
