Webinar to Take Closer Look at Repositories

Jan. 17, 2014 — Donald Maurice will present a webinar exploring the use of a centralized repository for the sharing of documentation concerning debt on Jan. 22, with Ben Kahrl, managing director and general counsel of Global Debt Registry, and Tim Collins, general counsel and chief ethics and compliance officer of Convergent Outsourcing, Inc.

In the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, the CFPB is seeking comment on the use of a centralized repository. The webinar will discuss repositories and the questions posed by the ANPR including how repositories validate and store information; how they could be used as a tool for monitoring debt collection vendors; consumer access to information in a repository, including privacy concerns; use of a repository for enforcement and proof of registered debts in litigation, including whether title reports could be used to meet state law heightened pleading requirements; regulatory questions surrounding communications and document exchange with consumers through a repository; and privacy and security of data and information in a repository.

The webinar will offer one hour of DBA International certification credits. Click here to register.
