International Banking Supervision Division

The International Banking Supervision (IBS) Division conducts the OCC's federal branches and agencies supervision program and coordinates its international work in line with the agency's primary bank supervisory goals. IBS also supports LBS in its supervision of the international activities of globally active U.S. banks.

IBS serves as the primary point of contact for international banking supervisors and as a clearinghouse for various requests the agency receives, such as for supervisory information, bilateral meetings, and participation in international working groups. IBS's mission includes a strong focus on working with foreign supervisors through information exchange and technical assistance.
