Regulation B (1071) - Small Business Lending Rule
On March 30, 2023, the CFPB issued the final rule for the small business lending rule, which was mandated under Section 1071 of the Dodd Frank Act over a decade ago. This is the most significant fair lending collection effort by the CFPB to date by requiring financial institutions to compile data regarding certain business credit applications and report that data to the CFPB to aid in its fair lending enforcement. In addition, the final rule provides other technical requirements including those requiring safeguarding of data, shielding of data from certain lending personnel, and recordkeeping. Compliance with this new rule is going to take a lot of planning, policy and procedure updates, and staff training within your institution. This session will break down the final rules and provide guidance to help compliance officers to begin preparing their institution for implementation.
Topics will include:
- Institutional coverage
- Transactional coverage
- Requirements to Collect and Report Data
- Sample Data Collection form
- Provisions Regarding Availability of Data and Publication of Data
- Requirements to Limit Access to Certain Data (Firewall)
- Effective Date and Compliance Date Tiers
- Transitional provisions and Safe Harbors
- Other Resources and Best Practices
