ComplianceEase Unveils Industry Pre-Exam™Portal
Free Industry Service Will Help All Lenders Prepare for Federal and State e-Exams

Burlingame, Calif. - October 24, 2019 - ComplianceEase®, announced today that beginning this January, in cooperation with the Multistate Mortgage Committee (MMC), it will offer a complementary Pre-Exam Portal "sandbox" to assist all residential mortgage lenders during their preparation for electronic examinations (e-Exams).

The Pre-Exam Portal is a public service available to any lender and is intended to improve lenders' experience during the preparation for state and federal e-Exams by giving them an opportunity to test the accuracy of the data they are submitting to regulators and previewing audit results

Once enrolled in the portal, lenders will be able to submit up to one hundred LEF™(Lending Examination Format) files for validation of proper formatting and evaluation against federal, state and local consumer protection compliance criteria.

The Pre-Exam Portal will return complete ComplianceAnalyzer® audit reports, similar to those the examiner in charge (EIC) will eventually receive. These reports will enable lenders to identify data integrity, mapping and translation issues, as well as view compliance findings before submitting the LEF files for the "live" e-Exam through RegulatorConnect®, the regulators' e-Exam platform. This preparation process provides transparency to lenders being examined and allows them to verify that their LEF files accurately represent the loan data contained in their system of record. Neither the LEF data submitted to the Pre-Exam Portal, nor the resulting Pre-Exam audit reports, will be accessible to regulators.

Earlier this month, the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) and American Association of Residential Mortgage Regulators (AARMR) jointly called upon the industry to integrate state-development standards with mortgage loan origination systems (LOS) to accelerate the e-Exam process. At that time, Jeremy Windham, Vice Chair of Multistate Mortgage Committee at CSBS and AARMR, said, "Developing processes for clean data transfers will streamline the e-Exam process mandated by the MMC, benefitting industry and regulators alike."

"The Pre-Exam Portal is an important first step in the process of getting lenders comfortable with e-Exams, and we're pleased to be able to offer it as a public service to the industry," said John Vong, CMB®, CMT, Executive Chairman of ComplianceEase. "This is the first of a series of initiatives that we will be announcing to further improve lenders' confidence and experience during the e-Exam process."
