By ABIA Outside Counsel Chrys Lemon and Chris Datskos, McIntyre & Lemon, PLLC

In October 2013, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) issued updated risk management guidance for national banks and federal savings associations on third-party relationships. The guidance explains the OCC’s expectations with respect to ensuring that third-party activities are performed in a safe and sound manner.
