In this session, we will examine the CFPB's broad application of its UDAAP authority. Taken together with an exploration of the CFPB's various informal guidance documents addressing debt collection issues, we will determine what constitutes a potential UDAAP violation according to the Bureau.
We will also review the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's (FDIC) debt collection recommendations for 1st party collectors, as well as compliance points related to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA), and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Finally, we will explore the recent verdicts and rulings that affect how you handle slow-paying accounts.
We will review, E-OSCAR (Electronic-Online Solution for Complete and Accurate Reporting), pros and cons of using METRO vs METRO-2 format, and special comment reporting codes. Also, we will discuss if you should report to more than one NCRA, and why you have to run quality checks on that data to make sure your trade lines are reporting accurately to stay in compliance.
Participants will understand what constitutes a well planned institutional loan policy that is in accordance with sound practices as well as regulatory requirements. You will also discover how to devise clear, precise, and meaningful procedures to audit the loan function.
This session will explore all elements of your business continuity plan, including design, testing and implementation.
Every financial institution should have a tested business continuity plan. This plan should prepare your institution for when something goes wrong. The potential for disaster is limitless, from short term software failure to long term facilities loss. Having a plan in place will help your institution deal with these disasters with confidence and in an effective and efficient manner.
