Reporting Your Credit Data, METRO2, E-OSCAR & FACTA Section 312 Accuracy and Integrity Compliance Deadline

About This Course:
Whether you report to one or all four of the National Credit Reporting Agencies (CRA), you are required to comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the FACTA amendment.

It's not what you know that will hurt you-it's re-polluting the consumer's file that can cost your Financial Institution plenty! We will review FACTA Section 312- new Accuracy and Integrity Guidelines, E-OSCAR, and using the METRO-2 format.

We will also discuss the pros and cons of reporting to more than one NCRA (National Credit Reporting Agency), and why you should run quality control checks on your data to make sure it is correct, and you are in compliance.
