The new Section 1071 rules contain sweeping changes to the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA). Do you understand the new data collection rules?

With the tiered effective dates, do you know when they apply to you? What are the best resources? How should you prepare? Join us to get insight into this long-awaited rule.
  • Identify when your financial institution will be required to collect and report the geographic and demographic data, lending decisions, and the price of credit
  • Use the CFPB tools and resources to develop a data collection process
  • Leverage the procedures used by HMDA reporters to collect the demographic information from women and minority applicants
  • Determine if there are significant gaps in the current loan application process for the 42 data points
  • Distinguish which data elements may be restricted from access by certain employees in the firewall provision of the rule


The new Section 1071 rules will require lenders to collect and report data on small business loan applications, including those of minority- and women-owned small businesses. The rule will create the first comprehensive database of small business credit applications in the country. Attend this session to get a game plan for complying with these sweeping changes.


This informative session is designed for senior management, directors, chief credit officers, commercial lenders, loan administration staff, compliance officers, risk managers, and fair lending officers.


  • Template for a “gap analysis” to quantify the current loan process, source documentation, and volume numbers (applications versus originations for small business applications)
  • Training plan template
  • CFPB resources for the 1071 rules, including the data points chart, executive summary, and information sheet
  • Employee training log
