Welcome to the Federal Registry Resource Center

The NMLS Federal Registry was created at the direction of federal banking regulators to fulfill the registration requirement of  federally chartered or insured institutions and their mortgage loan originators in compliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s rules and the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (“SAFE Act”). The NMLS Federal Registry Resource Center provides institutions and mortgage loan originators with tools and guides for completing the mandated registration process in NMLS.  Questions about the Federal Rule or the SAFE Act should be directed to an institution’s primary federal regulator.
