Financial institutions must comply with a variety of fair lending, collection, and reporting requirements beyond the Truth-in-Lending Act. These other laws and regulations were established to protect consumers from discrimination and from credit practices that have been deemed unfair. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is now taking a leading role in fair lending, in addition to the measures taken by each regulator.

Federal Fair Lending and Credit Practices Manual provides easy reference to federal laws regulating fair lending and credit practices for practitioners representing lending institutions and other entities that extend credit to consumers. It gives you timely information and authoritative guidance you need to make sure your institution stays in full compliance — safe from costly penalties.

•  Fair Housing Act

•  Fair Credit Reporting Act
