In December 2014, the existing intermediaries under the pilot were informed that the pilot would end with the effective date of the final rule to create a certified loan application packaging process. While this expiration provision for the pilot was known, the actual date came sooner than expected. To allow the existing intermediaries under the pilot sufficient time to process loan application packages in their queue and to prepare for the implementation of the final rule, the effective date for the final rule will be deferred to October 1, 2015.
