Department Accreditation  

Striving for Excellence

The mission of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors is to assure the ability of each state banking authority to provide safe, sound and well-regulated financial institutions to meet the unique financial needs of local economies and citizens. In support of that mission, CSBS sponsors a comprehensive state banking department performance Accreditation Program to enhance the professionalism of state banking departments and their personnel.

During the early 1980s, CSBS developed a program that was designed to recognize and enhance excellence in state regulation and lead to a reduction in duplicative federal regulatory and supervisory activity over state-chartered banks. Over the years, the Accreditation Program has evolved as a result of long-standing CSBS policy and the development of the current Accreditation Program is a logical extension of past efforts.

In 2009, CSBS signed an agreement with AARMR to jointly accredit State Mortgage Regulators which involves the same areas of review as the Bank Accreditation Program. 

Today, the Accreditation Program involves a comprehensive review of the critical elements that assure the ability of a state banking department or mortgage agency to discharge its responsibilities through an investigation of its administration and finances, personnel policies and practices, training programs, examination policies and practices, supervisory procedures, and statutory powers. In setting high standards, CSBS is supporting public interest goals by identifying highly competent state banking departments and state mortgage agencies to strengthening the capabilities of all state regulators.
