The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is the first regulator to be given direct supervisory authority over collection agencies and debt buyers, including onsite examinations and business audits for larger companies.

The CFPB Primer lays out what you'll need to have prepared for a CFPB Examination or Audit. Though currently, the CFPB is only examining Large Market Participants in the debt collection industry, most LMPs outsource some businesses to smaller agencies, making them affected participants, and likely to be audited by their business partners in a similar fashion to the CFPB. This resource is a terrific way to begin preparing for compliance audits of any kind.

You'll Learn:

  • Why it's important for agency policies to mirror day-to-day practices
  • How to flesh out key components of your policies and procedures
  • What the CFPB does behind the scenes to prepare for an examination of a collection agency
