Prioritize your compliance efforts to maximize risk protection and save
There seem to be countless regulations affecting credit unions, and the number continues to grow as Washington demands stronger protection for member information and complete transparency for transactions. The question is how do you interpret and meet so many regulatory compliance standards, especially when they are written to cover all financial service organizations of all sizes, with product lines that range from simple to complex.
Important Upcoming Regulatory Compliance Dates
Regulatory compliance is always changing. The regulatory compliance calendar is intended to assist with planning and to address requirements related to federal consumer protection and other regulations. Information contained in the calendar is designed to serve as a reminder of relevant dates to complete tasks associated with regulatory matters. We highly recommend you consult the referenced law or regulation for specific details as may be appropriate.
The Plante Moran regulatory compliance consulting professionals can help you sift through the regulations and decide which ones your credit union has to comply with and the best way to comply. Our regulatory compliance consulting services will help you simplify, thereby minimizing the impact and maximizing the benefits.
