How Compliance Impacts Debt Collection Management

How Compliance Impacts Debt Collection Management

Compliance is a critical component in debt management and collections systems. Learn more about how compliance impacts debt collection management and how credit unions can stay in control.

What ’s the big deal?

Increased scrutiny on debt collection practices, fueled by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and its stringent demands on debt collection agencies, has required financial institutions not only to get a sense of how new rules and regulations might impact their business, but also to consider the implementation of policies and procedures aimed at protecting their members.

State, federal and industry legislation, regulations, and laws including the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank),  the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Federal Trade Commission Act (FTCA) and Unfair, Deceptive, or Abusive Acts or Practices (UDAAP), place an increasing burden of accountability and documentation requirements on all lenders and all debt collection activities.

As a result there has been a significant increase in the cost of compliance in all collection efforts and an undeniable exposure in areas that are not in full compliance with regulatory standards. Businesses have had to produce official records and endure greater restrictions on how they communicate with consumers.
