Working together, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae (the GSEs) have provided a common industry dataset called the Uniform Closing Dataset (UCD) to support the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) Closing Disclosure. We published the UCD MISMO-mapping document, Appendix B: Closing Disclosure Mapping to the MISMO v3.3 Reference Model, and Appendix I: UCD Delivery Specification. It’s important that lenders and vendors develop a plan for how they will implement the UCD. Using the UCD to implement the CFPB's Closing Disclosure could save you time and resources.

The GSEs will implement separate collection solutions for lenders to start delivering the UCD no later than the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2016 and will mandate the delivery of the UCD no earlier than in the second quarter (Q2) of 2017 for all loans acquired by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.

Closing Vendors: If you're a vendor involved in the mortgage closing process, please review Appendix B: Closing Disclosure Mapping to the MISMO v3.3 Reference Model. In addition, send us your contact information to receive news and information from the GSEs as you prepare to implement the UCD.

Lenders: Talk with your closing vendors about the GSE requirement for lenders to deliver the UCD. Discuss what this will mean for your joint processes and technologies. Encourage them to review and implement the UCD MISMO-mapping document.
