In addition, the Agencies request comment more broadly on whether furnishers should be expected to provide any other types of information to a consumer reporting agency in order to promote integrity.

The OCC, Board, FDIC, OTS, FCA, and NCUA (collectively, the Agencies) are proposing amendments to their rules to implement the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (the S.A.F.E.

Act's requirements to register and obtain a unique identifier and must adopt and follow written policies and procedures designed to assure compliance with these requirements.
