Therefore, examiners will review the risks associated with all material third-party relationships and activities together with other bank risks. In certain high risk situations, examiners may conduct on-site thirdparty reviews under specific authorities granted to the OCC. RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTS TO MEET SMALL–DOLLAR CREDIT NEEDS The OCC recognizes the need for responsible small-dollar credit products among consumers. A number of banks are currently offering reasonably priced small-dollar loans at reasonable terms to their customers. If such loans are structured properly, they can provide a safe and affordable means for borrowers to transition away from reliance on high-cost debt products that do not appropriately serve their needs. The OCC encourages these banks to continue to offer these products, consistent with safety and soundness and other supervisory considerations, and encourage other banks to consider offering such products as well. Properly managed small-dollar loan products offered with reasonable terms and at a reasonable cost do not pose the same level of supervisory risk as deposit advance products. Dated: April 22, 2013.
