State regulators are proposing a set of Baseline Prudential Regulatory Standards, which will be applied across the board to all non-bank mortgage servicing companies licensed by and operating in the states. The Baseline Prudential Regulatory Standards cover the following eight specific areas of prudential regulation: capital; liquidity; risk management; data standards; data protection; corporate governance; servicing transfer requirements; and change-of-control requirements. Additionally, the state regulators also propose a set of Enhanced Prudential Standards, which would be applied to larger, more complex non-bank mortgage servicing companies. Such enhanced measures include prudential regulations requiring additional planning, modeling, metrics and audit for: capital, liquidity; stress testing; and living will/recovery and resolution plans.
The press release from the CSBS and AARMR, including a link to the full set of Baseline and Enhanced Prudential Standards can be found here.
