Concerns regarding bank and credit union examinations increase during difficult economic times. In a recent survey conducted by CUNA, nearly 30% of credit unions reported dissatisfaction with their most recent exam. Credit unions support strong but fair and appropriate safety and soundness
regulation and supervision to protect the financial resources of credit unions and their members and to minimize costs to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) borne by all federally insured credit unions. These exams should be based on the laws Congress enacts and the regulations that NCUA
promulgates, and the appeals process should protect credit unions from examiner retaliation.
