METRO2® Regulatory Considerations and FCRA Compliance

Understand your potential legal risk and compliance obligations with respect to consumer credit reporting.

Many financial institutions which furnish consumer credit information on a periodic basis to Credit Reporting Agencies (CRAs) experience challenges in furnishing data in the Metro 2® format. There are many common pitfalls and mistakes that can occur when furnishing data to CRAs, and the consequences for furnishing without accuracy and integrity can be severe. Responding to consumer disputes in an appropriate and timely manner can also present additional complexities. Failing to provide accurate data submissions to the CRAs under the Federal Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and other Federal Consumer Finance laws can result in severe penalties. This information is critical for persons responsible for furnishing data to credit reporting agencies so they can ensure their submissions are accurate and in compliance with the FCRA. This topic helps the persons responsible for furnishing data to CRAs and responding to disputes understand the Metro 2® format and how to avoid common pitfalls and mistakes during the furnishing process. The content provides detailed reporting examples for Metro 2® transmission along with an explanation of how to avoid incorrect submissions, and an understanding of both direct and indirect disputes.
