The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today issued the revised "Sampling Methodologies" booklet of the Comptroller’s Handbook.

The revised booklet is effective for supervisory activities beginning on or after June 15, 2020.
The revised "Sampling Methodologies" booklet replaces the booklet of the same title dated August 1998 and Office of Thrift Supervision Examination Handbook section 209, "Sampling."
