Trades: Data aggregators must go through CFPB evaluation

The American Bankers Association and 7 nationwide trade associations petitioned the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau today to start rulemaking to guarantee that organizations that gather big quantities of customer monetary information undergo the very same oversight as banks.

CFPB is presently taken part in rulemaking under Section 1033 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which will develop requirements for sharing customer monetary information, normally through 3rd parties, in a safe and transparent way that offers customers manage. Financial organizations currently need to satisfy rigorous information personal privacy requirements under federal law and are kept an eye on for compliance for all customer compliance laws by the bureau, the trade groups kept in mind in the petition. Data aggregators will be covered by the Section 1033 guideline however are exempt to CFPB guidance, leaving a considerable space in security for customers, they included.

The groups contacted the CFPB to start a rulemaking to specify “larger participants” in the information aggregation services market that must go through continuous guidance by the bureau for compliance with the guideline when it is last.

“We believe the CFPB should ensure that data aggregators and data users that are larger participants in the aggregation services market—not just banks and credit unions—are examined for compliance with applicable federal consumer financial law, especially the requirements of the forthcoming 1033 rulemaking, including the substantive prohibitions on the release of confidential commercial information,” the associations stated.
