In December 2020, the CFPB released a final rule that updated the definition of Qualified Mortgages. While the rule is effective March 1, 2021, compliance is not mandatory until July 1, 2021. The new definition eliminates the Debt-to-Income requirement and replaces it with price-based thresholds that compare a loan’s APR to the APOR.

As a result, BAI needs to immediately retire course Reg Z: Appendix Q, 20507BCMN as the portion of the regulation it covers is now obsolete.

FinCEN Seeks Comments on Enhancing the Effectiveness of AML Programs (November 28th, 2020)

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) today issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to solicit public comment on a wide range of questions pertaining to potential regulatory amendments under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). The proposals under consideration are intended to provide financial institutions greater flexibility in the allocation of resources and greater alignment of priorities across industry and government, resulting in the enhanced effectiveness and efficiency of anti-money laundering (AML) programs.

Course Updates:  BAI will release new and updated courses upon finalization of rules. (Release Date TBD)

The final rule also extends customer identification program and beneficial ownership requirements to those banks.
