The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act means more risk for you. To a large extent, the early stages of legal and regulatory compliance will be based on current laws and regulations. Nonetheless, you can expect closer regulatory scrutiny of your current compliance, as well as your compliance to changing requirements from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
For the information and guidance you need to navigate in this shifting regulatory environment, look no further than the newly-revised Fourth Edition Truth-in-Lending Manual—your comprehensive, practical guide to Truth-In-Lending, Regulation Z, and Regulation M compliance. This three-volume reference offers clear analysis of the law, practical guidance for complying with regulations, and assistance in drafting forms and developing procedures that comply with truth-in-lending requirements.
