Regulation By Enforcement
The CFPB has been criticized for providing guidance in the form of enforcement actions rather than by writing regulations.
In a March 9, 2016 speech Director Cordray confirmed that consent orders that accompany the Bureau’s public enforcement actions, “provide detailed guidance for compliance officers across the marketplace about how they should regard similar practices at their own institutions.
If the same problems exist in their day-to-day operations, they should look closely at their processes and clean up whatever is not being handled appropriately.” He added that “it would be ‘compliance malpractice’ for executives not to take careful bearings from the contents of these orders about how to comply with the law and treat consumers fairly.”
To assure that financial institutions avoid “compliance malpractice” this program reviews many of the recent consent orders dealing with compliance-related matters.
This two-hour webinar provides a thorough review of recent enforcement actions taken by various federal agencies. It assures participants understand:
The inappropriate actions taken by the institutions in each case
The lessons to be learned from the actions
The steps needed to avoid similar problems
Participants will receive a detailed manual that serves as a handbook long after the program is completed.
