This past year has been marked by several notable achievements for MISMO despite challenging market conditions. Highlights of the report include:

• MISMO released several new and updated standards, including an update to the reference model, the foundation of MISMO dataset, API, and SMART Doc standards, and a Private Label RMBS Specification and Implementation Guide that will support the rating agencies and result in a more efficient Private Label RMBS securitization process.
• In response to industry needs, MISMO published an ESG Data Implementation Considerations reference guide to assist lenders and other industry participants in gathering environmental, social, and governance (ESG) information to meet reporting requirements, and made important progress towards publishing a standardized regulatory examination file for lender submission to state regulators.
• MISMO provided an industry forum for discussion of the impact of Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) credit scoring changes, the emerging use of artificial intelligence (AI), and the creation of a playbook of servicing transfers best practices.
