US moves on banking data rules, but portability could take years to facilitate Rules around portable account history could be years in the making The US Presidential Executive Order encouraging the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to “issue rules allowing customers to download their banking data and take it with them” from bank to bank, could take a number of years to enable. “Allowing customers to download their data was not mandated in Dodd Frank… it could take several years to facilitate,” says David Schroeder, senior vice president, federal governmental relations, at the Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI). The CFPB is currently reviewing comments received in response to an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) regarding the issue of data access by users and aggregators, for use in assisting consumers in a variety of different computer applications.
