Written and observed policies and procedures are the foundation to a solid compliance management system that gives employees a clear roadmap to compliance and in meeting service standards. The Board of Directors demonstrate responsible leadership and governance by approving policies of the credit union.
The policies in this Parama Partners Inc. Sample Policies are intended to provide a framework. You should build on the policy template by Incorporating your institution’s specifications. A generic policy will not provide sufficient guidance to employees.
Parama Partners Inc. does not provide legal opinions or legal advice. The templates here should not be relied upon as a substitute for professional services. Parama Partners Inc. does not warranty these templates and will not be liable for any direct, indirect, or consequential damages resulting from or emerging from the use of any of the policies herein.
An effective policy should not restate a law or regulation. The policy should capture the specific position or requirements of your credit union. Contact us if you are interested in our assistance in customizing policies with a greater deeper scope to help you meet regulatory requirements.
Your credit union’s policy should show your position with respect to the key points of the regulation, statute, law, guidance, etc. Examiners have come to expect the following policy components:
As a result, Parama Partners Inc. has incorporated these four components in each of our policies.
Because the Board of Directors must approve all policies, we recommend that you maintain policies and procedures separately since procedures are often revised. In maintaining the procedures separately, the Board of Directors will only need to approve changes to the policy.Through the approved policy, the Board of Directors tells the credit union how to comply; management needs to create the procedures to execute. Some regulations require an entire program (e.g., BSA, Identity Theft, CIP), which includes policy and procedures. In these instances, the program (policy and procedures) must be approved by the Board of Directors. For higher risk areas policies should state what is and is not acceptable risk for the credit union.
The Parama Partners Inc. Sample Policies focus on key consumer compliance and BSA-AML regulations. They are dynamic documents that will be updated as regulations are amended. We utilized several resources in creating the templates, including the regulations, statutes, laws, regulatory/agency guidance, and our professional work experience. The templates are not intended to replace reading or referencing the actual laws or regulations. The templates are guides as to the most common compliance matters that credit unions face. Be sure to carefully review the templates and tailor each policy to your credit union’ specific policy statements.
Thank you for selecting Parama Partners Inc. to assist you with your compliance needs.
