Maryland moving collection agency licensing to NMLS system

Posted 1 November: The  Maryland Collection Agency Licensing Board and DLLR's Commissioner of Financial Regulation (Agency) has announced that the Agency is preparing to shift the Collection Agency licensing process to a nationwide licensing system known as NMLS.

NMLS already handles Maryland's licensing requirements for "money transmitters."

A core element of the NMLS is that all licenses, unless perpetual, expire at the end of the calendar year.  In order to prepare for the transition, the Agency will start phasing out two-year licenses and it will initiate a process to align all collection agency licenses to a December 31st expiration date.   As some licenses will be issued for a period of less than two years, prorated fees will be charged by the Maryland licensing system.

No specific date was given for when the Maryland license conversion to the NMLS system is to begin, but the Agency promised periodic updates.
