Also, NCUA Exam Update
How can credit unions limit their fair lending risk in indirect lending?

Institutions subject to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) jurisdiction, including credit unions and indirect auto lenders, should take steps to ensure they are operating in compliance with the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) and Regulation B as applied to dealer-markup and compensation policies.

Fair Lending Exam Update
The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Compliance Blog has posted valuable information on the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) fair lending examinations.

The agency completed 41 off-site supervision contacts last year and plans to complete approximately 50 off-site supervision contacts in 2014.

NCUA has implemented a risk-focused approach to conducting on-site examinations and off-site supervision contacts. Examinations include a transactional review of fair lending risk factors, plus a review of the credit union’s fair lending compliance management system.

Examination focal points and contact scoping are based on multiple factors, including Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) reporting outliers and violations identified in safety and soundness examinations, or through the complaint process. Supervision contacts also review a credit union’s fair lending compliance management system.
