A Message From Our President

Dear Valued Member,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the June issue of Equifax Advisor. When it comes to risk management, the current volatile economic conditions are combining with legislative changes and ever-evolving technological advances to significantly change the rules of the game. Since knowledge is power, we are therefore dedicating this issue to 'organizational readiness' and profiling two feature articles on the subject.

This month's question pertains to the issue of 'implied consent'.

Question Times and technology have changed over the years and we would appreciate clarification on whether 'implied consent' as compared to 'written consent' is adequate authorization for lenders to request a consumer's personal credit file?

Daryll Bown,
Asst. Credit Services Manager,
Northern Credit Union
