Metro 2, E-OSCAR and New Tougher FCRA/CFPB Compliance

Duration: 60 Minutes
Understand your potential legal risk and compliance obligations with respect to consumer credit reporting. Many financial institutions which furnish consumer credit information on a periodic basis to Credit Reporting Agencies (CRAs) experience challenges in furnishing data in the Metro 2® format. Most credit reporting disputes are handled through the E-OSCAR/ACDV system, which has had recent updates that affect data furnishers' legal obligations in regard to these disputes. This is an active area of litigation and regulatory scrutiny that is consistently being reviewed by examiners and regulators.
