 NMLS Policy Changes for COVID-19

Following the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council's release announcing there would be a 30-day extension for certain reports, the NMLS Policy Committee has decided to amend the previously announced 60-day temporary deadline extension for the following types of reporting submitted in NMLS:

  • Money Services Businesses Call Report
  • Mortgage Call Report ​
  • Mortgage Call Report Financial Condition
  • Financial Statements
With the amended policy, instead of an extension, ​the NMLS Policy Committee encourages regulators to be lenient and not take administrative action if reports are filed within 30 days of the placement of the License Item.
