As if simplifying compliance in the financial sector wasn’t already a challenge, recent news surrounding Dodd-Frank 1071 continues to complicate matters and raise questions.

On July 31, U.S. District Court Judge Randy Crane granted a preliminary injunction in favor of two trade groups and a private bank that filed a lawsuit against the CFPB to prevent the implementation of Dodd-Frank 1071. A federal judge agreed to halt the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s small-business data collection rule until after the Supreme Court decides next year on whether the bureau’s funding is constitutional. Then, on August 2, the Texas Bankers Association and the American Bankers Association jointly sent a letter to the CFPB, urging for a relief measure that would exempt all banks from adhering to the mentioned rule.

Regardless of your stance on Dodd-Frank 1071, we’ve got some good news: with nCino's Small Business Banking Solution, FIs can comply with confidence even as regulations evolve, while at the same time overcoming a multitude of other challenges, from outdated systems and manual processes to fragmented data storage.

What is Dodd-Frank 1071?

With the finalization of Section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Act on March 30, financial institutions (FIs) are required to collect and submit credit application data for underserved businesses. This regulation aims to increase transparency and enforce fair lending practices but can pose significant operational challenges for FIs that aren’t prepared to meet the new requirements. As the deadline for data collection and reporting approaches, FIs need a reliable and adaptable solution.

Enter nCino’s Small Business Banking Solution, which collects, translates and exports data in a format according to the filing instructions provided by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, providing a comprehensive solution for FIs.
