The Comply 18 Update The Comply 18.0 release incorporates significant changes, many of which are related to the final HMDA rule as published by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on October 15, 2015 for 2018 HMDA data submission.

In our last Start Page Article we discussed how RATA was going to handle the 2018 submission, and more specifically, the Partial Exemption functionality. All of the submission functionality is done and working. We are now performing final Quality Assurance on that functionality as well as some major changes to mapping and the way Fair Lending data is managed. With so many changes, we are carefully going over every aspect of the software and as always, it takes a little longer than you anticipate. We said we would be releasing the software somewhere around the end of October. It is looking like we will probably need about one more week to tighten everything up to our standards. We will be hitting it hard over the next week and will have a release ready to distribute by end of day Monday,

The 2017 CRA Peer, Performance Evaluation and Market Share data is now available and can be downloaded from the support site. It is also available on the HMDA and CRA Peer website.
The 2017 CRA Aggregate data, used for CRA Peer analysis, was finally released on Thursday, October 25. Historically this data was released in the August/September timeframe, however like last year, this year's release was delayed for some undisclosed reason. The public HMDA data was available much earlier than usual this year and we are not sure why the FFIEC takes over six months longer to produce the CRA data. We converted the data for use in Comply's CRA Performance Evaluation tables and DataMine, as well as the Comply Peer2Peer website.

The following changes will be available in Comply version 18, which is expected to be released at the end of October. On May 24, 2018, the President signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (the Act) into law. This resulted in a partial exemption of certain HMDA requirements for certain insured depository institutions and insured credit unions. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published its Interpretive Procedural Rule on August 30, 2018, outlining which Data Points are not required of institutions that meet the partial exemption requirements. This document is an overview of how Comply will address the partial exemption changes for any institution that meets the criteria and elects to follow the partial exemption for their HMDA submission.

We will be releasing our major update and official submission version of Comply 2018 near the end of October. The CFPB just released substantial changes to the submission process for partially exempt institutions. We will be implementing those changes as well as finalizing the edits and
