SSAE18 is a regulation created by the Auditing Standards Board (ASB) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). SSAE18 redefines and updates how service companies report on compliance and controls. SSAE18 standards have been implemented across a wide range of virtually every service based company that deals with financial transactions. As Escrow Companies have sought the best path to meet the new standards and requirements of the CFPB (Consumer Finance Protection Bureau), few have selected the extensive, rigorous path of implementing SSAE18. Escrow Today is one of the few.
