CFPB, in partnership with multiple state regulators, launched the American Consumer Financial Innovation Network (ACFIN). ACFIN is intended to enhance coordination among federal and state regulators to facilitate financial innovation.
ACFIN is intended to promote regulatory certainty for innovators and to keep pace with market innovations while helping to ensure they are free from fraud, discrimination, and deceptive practices. As a result of this partnership, ACFIN members will share information to facilitate coordination among the members and coordinate on innovation-related policies and programs. The members will meet at least once a year in an agreed-upon location and will confer via phone at least quarterly. CFPB also published the ACFIN Charter.
