Equal Credit Opportunity Act Compliance
The Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) applies to both residential and commercial lending. ECOA requires that an institution make a credit decision on a loan application within a certain time; however, what constitutes an application and what time frame applies differs between residential and commercial lending and differs for different types of commercial borrowers. An institution must incorporate these differences into policies, procedures, processes, and training.

Loan Applications Adverse Action
ECOA also requires that loan applicants be notified when an adverse credit decision is made - that is, for example, when a loan application is denied, or closed for incompleteness. What constitutes a denial, or an application closure, can vary based on the circumstances. It is important that an institution get these details right in order to ensure ECOA compliance.
