Reporting Your Credit Data, METRO2, E-OSCAR, FCRA/FACTA & CFPB Compliance

Re-polluting the consumers’ files under new, tougher CFPB regs that can cost your institution plenty. This program reviews CFPB, FCRA and FACTA requirements for data reporting, essential quality control checks and common reporting errors.

Whether you report to one or all four of the National Credit Reporting Agencies (NCRA), you are required to comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Fair & Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) amendment. It’s not what you know that will hurt you, it’s re-polluting the consumer’s file under new tougher CFPB regs that can cost your institution plenty!

We will review Electronic-Online Solution for Complete and Accurate Reporting (E-OSCAR) (a CFPB requirement) and using METRO2 for your monthly data reporting. We’ll also discuss why you should run quality control checks on any data you report and common errors on consumer files.

This program will be instrumental in establishing proper credit policies and procedures to comply with Federal regulations. The instructor will take time for questions and provide opportunities to work through common problems using “real world” situations. The materials will be a valuable resource after the webinar.
