Advisory Bulletins are Federal Housing Finance Board staff documents through which the Office of Supervision provides guidance to the Federal Home Loan Banks regarding particular supervisory issues.  Although an Advisory Bulletin does not have the force of a regulation or an order, it does reflect the position of the Office of Supervision on the particular issue and is followed by supervisory staff.  Advisory Bulletins issued prior to 2004 may include confidential supervisory or financial information and generally are not available to the public.

Advisory Bulletins are numbered in sequence by year with the prefix “AB”, e.g., 2004-AB-##.
