In the past year, a number of states have expanded their use of the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) to manage license authorities beyond the mortgage industry. The NMLS now administers state licenses for a variety of license types, including:

  • Money Transmitters 
  • Collection Agencies 
  • Pawnbrokers 
  • Insurance Premium Finance Companies 
  • Motor Vehicle Sales Finance Companies 
  • Motor Vehicle Retail Sellers 
  • Check Cashers 
  • Debt Adjusters 
  • Debt Management Service Providers 
  • Payday Lenders

The expansion of the NMLS into new license types is expected to continue in 2013 and beyond, raising important questions about licensing compliance and state regulatory supervision. In this webinar, we will review the system's functionality and discuss ways that companies can adapt their compliance practices to this new licensing landscape.

Our panelists include Leslie Pettijohn, the Texas Consumer Credit Commissioner, and Tim Doyle, a top official with the Conference of State Bank Supervisors, which created the NMLS and whose wholly owned subsidiary, the State Regulatory Registry LLC (SRR), owns and operates the NMLS.  


  • How the NMLS works 
  • How state reporting and renewal requirements are affected by the NMLS 
  • The impact on examinations and state supervision 
  • Additional states and license types migrating to the NMLS
