What is the Conference of State
Bank Supervisors?


The Conference of State Bank Supervisors is the nationwide organization of financial regulators from all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

For more than a century, CSBS has given state supervisors a national forum to coordinate supervision and develop policy. CSBS also represents its members before federal policymakers and regulators, provides training, and manages the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System.


A new series of CSBS papers will describe the various business segments within the nonbank industry, explain how they are currently licensed and supervised by state financial regulators, and discuss issues affecting regulatory changes going forward
