Task 1:Identify and Interpret Compliance Requirements1.IdentifycompliancerequirementsMortgage brokers face important compliance requirements, the foremost amongthem being the reasonable lending provisions of the NCCP Act. The penalties fornon-compliance include loss of license (for businesses) and removal from theindustry (for individuals). If fraud is involved there may also be the criminalpenalties of fines and / or imprisonment.Compliance requirements are not static. It is therefore important to stay up todate with them.Mortgage brokers also need to keep up-to-date with the actions of the regulatoryauthorities such as APRA and the Reserve Bank. Their actions may not amountto direct regulation, but through their effects on interest rates and bank lendingthese authorities can have a very direct impact on the business mortgagebrokers are able to do.(a)A key requirement of the responsible lending obligations is the ‘unsuitability test.’ What must amortgage do to comply with the unsuitability test?NoMark1./12./13./1(b)List the sorts of items a client’s requirements and objectives could include (as indicated byASIC).Mark/2(c)Leading credit providers and other financial organisations have code of ethics, sometimecalled codes of conduct.

Task 1:Identify and Interpret Compliance RequirementsContinued1.2Interpret,analyseandprioritiseidentifiedcompliancerequirementsSome of the compliance requirements are difficult to meet. Unfortunately, alsothere have been some ‘rogue’ mortgage brokers who have failed to comply – to thedisadvantage of their clients.The finance planning industry has been plagued by non-compliance in the largestplanning groups, with the image of the industry being substantially tarnished as aresult. It may not suffer greatly because of the absence of an alternative source offinancial advice.This is not so with mortgage brokers. They are just establishing their reputation andconsumers always have alternative of going to the lenders directly.(a)Select three tasks you perform on a regular basis that are subject to compliancerequirements.NoMark1./12./13./1(b)Identify the compliance requirements that are relevant to the three tasks selected, indicatingthe name of the relevant legislation, regulation or code of conduct.No1./12./13./1(c)How does your organisation monitor your compliance?Mark/2Sub-total /8ContinuedTotal /27CopyrightMentor Education Group Pty LtdPage5of41tmp2xrg5pk31694902_1100338398_618971.docx
