Equifax Can Help Simplify Required Regulatory Compliance Processes
Compliance with regulatory requirements for the Military Lending Act (MLA) Covered Borrower Status and for the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is a business requirement that can add cumbersome steps to the customer acquisition and account management processes. Failure to implement sufficient MLA and OFAC screening practices can often result in costly fines or reputational risk.
Equifax solutions help you:
- Save Time by Automating and Streamlining Processes
- Achieve Save Harbor and avoid potential penalties
Equifax's MLA Covered Borrowers Status returns an applicant’s status, giving you valuable insight to which credit terms you must offer to help you quickly proceed with origination and maintain a “safe harbor”.
Equifax's OFAC Alert is an automated OFAC screening service for US-based organizations that must comply with OFAC regulations. To help efficiently and effectively screen both new and existing accounts in less time and using fewer resources, OFAC Alert compares new accounts to government listings of Specially Designated Nationals, Blocked Persons and Blocked Entities before opening accounts or conducting transactions such as deposits, loans and fund transfers within existing accounts.
Screen your entire portfolio of customers at once through a batch, offline process or at the point of sale for each new application. And if you do receive a hit, Equifax can assist with the due diligence requirements associated with reviewing each hit with our False Positive Review service. We'll review your initial hits to reduce false positives—saving you time, money and resources—enabling you to focus your reviews and reporting on the positive matches.
