The Banker’s Responsibility Under FCRA Webinar
This webinar provides a review of the numerous subparts and appendices included in both the CFPB’s and FRB’s Regulation V and the FCRA and FACTA. It also includes the EGRRCPA amendments. Although many of the provisions are new, program participants frequently comment that they never heard of some of the sections discussed.
Webinar Description and Intended Audience
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) has been around since the 1970s. The law was fairly straight forward for many years. Then the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) became law on December 4, 2003. The FACT Act revised the FCRA. The revisions, which unfolded over an eight-year period, resulted in substantial changes for all financial institutions.
In order to understand the various provisions of the law today, research must include both the FCRA and FACTA and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’ s (CFPB) Regulation V and the Federal Reserve Board’s (FRB) Regulation V. It is all a bit of a jumble.
The Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (EGRRCPA), which was signed into law on May 24, 2018, further amends a number of sections of the FCRA. Those sections create new security freeze rules, change rules regarding veteran’s medical debt, and allow a rehabilitation program for delinquent student loans. The EGRRCPA revisions have effective dates ranging from May 24, 2018 to May 24, 2019.
This two-hour online program provides a review of the numerous subparts and appendices included in both the CFPB’s and FRB’s Regulation V and the FCRA and FACTA. It also includes the EGRRCPA amendments. Although many of the provisions are new, program participants frequently comment that they never heard of some of the sections discussed. Ignorance of the law is not an acceptable excuse for violations. If any member of your staff is not familiar with the provisions listed below they need this program.
