NMLS is the system of record for non-depository, financial services licensing or registration in participating state agencies, including the District of Columbia and U.S. Territories of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam. In these jurisdictions, NMLS is the official system for companies and individuals seeking to apply for, amend, renew and surrender license authorities managed through NMLS by 60 state or territorial governmental agencies. NMLS itself does not grant or deny license authority.
NMLS is the sole system of licensure for mortgage companies for 57 state agencies and the sole system of licensure for Mortgage Loan Originators (MLOs) for 60 state and territorial agencies. Several states also currently manage other non-depository financial services entities through the System, such as money transmitters, pawnbrokers, check cashers, and payday lenders.
NMLS is also the system of record for the registration of depositories, subsidiaries of depositories, and MLOs under the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Regulation G (S.A.F.E. Mortgage Licensing Act – Federal Registration of Residential Mortgage Loan Originators), published December 19, 2011.
NMLS was created by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) and the American Association of Residential Mortgage Regulators (AARMR)1 and began operations in January 2008. It is owned and operated by the State Regulatory Registry LLC (SRR)2, a wholly owned subsidiary of CSBS.
