Course description

Instructions for implementing the partial HMDA exemptions for smaller reporters were issued on Friday, August 31, 2018 by the Bureau for Consumer Financial Protection via an interpretive and procedural rule.  These rules implement the changes made to HMDA by the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act that was signed into law on May 24, 2018.

The partial exemptions apply only to depository institutions - banks and credit unions - that meet a lower reporting threshold.

You do have to pay close attention to the reporting requirements; as always there are nuances.  This is not just a "go to the FIG and enter the codes" exercise. It is important to understand the entire rule for the partial exemptions.

This webinar will review everything you need to know about these partial exemptions and it's appropriate for everyone who needs to understand this change: lending and operations staff, compliance officers, auditors, and  examiners.
