The federal banking regulators (including the CFPB) confirmed in a letter issued yesterday that "[e]xaminers will expect supervised entities to make good faith efforts to comply with the ['Know Before You Owe'
TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure] Rule's requirements in a timely manner."
More specifically, "examiners will consider the institution's implementation plan, including actions taken to update policies, procedures, and processes; its training of appropriate staff; and its handling of early technical problems or other implementation challenges."
A copy of the letter issued by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is available at:
The CFPB's related press release is available at:
The regulators state that the member agencies of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) "recognize that the mortgage industry has needed to make significant systems and operational changes to adjust to the requirements of the Rule, and that implementation requires extensive coordination with third parties."
The FFIEC is comprised of principals of the following: the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the National Credit Union Administration, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the State Liaison Committee.
