International Outreach

The OCC's Foreign Technical Assistance (FTA) Program 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.

The 2020 Schools for Foreign Banking Supervisors have been postponed until further notice. If you have any questions please send email to
