OCC Updates Risk Assessment System Guidance

The OCC also revised the definition of “risk” to apply to all categories and include its impact on a bank’s current or projected financial condition or resilience.

Other updates include the addition of a new “insufficient” category to the quality of risk management assessment and the inclusion of quantitative and qualitative requirements for assessing strategic and reputational risk.
