MISMO Seeks Public Comment on the SMART Doc V3 Sample Package

MISMO, the real estate finance industry’s standards organization, today announced that it is seeking public comment on the SMART Doc V3 Sample Package. The 60-day public comment period runs through Sept. 8, 2024.  

The SMART Doc V3 Sample Package is part of MISMO’s broader program to help increase SMART Doc® adoption to documents beyond the eNote. The SMART Doc V3 Verifiable Profile specification allows document data to travel with the PDF and then be automatically verified with the document image, providing assurance that loan documents and associated data are consistent, reliable, and unaltered. Candidates for the sample package were selected from existing MISMO Standard Datasets where there would be value in verifying the document data.

The MISMO SMART Doc V3 Verifiable Profile Specification served as the base to create the following samples for use by implementers:

• Closing Disclosure
• Closing Protection Letter
• Commitment for Title Insurance
• Request for Tax Transcript (IRS 4506-C)
• Request for Certificate of VA Eligibility (VA Form 26-1880)
• Statement of Credit Denial, Termination, or Change
• Verification of VA Benefits (VA Form 26-8937)

The comment period provides workgroup participants who participated in the proposal a notice period prior to final release to review the information and disclose any applicable Patent Rights (as defined by MISMO’s 2018 Intellectual Property Rights Policy).

MISMO requests that any organization that may have any patent or patent applications, or other intellectual property rights that might be infringed upon by an organization that uses or is compliant with these proposed MISMO products to disclose them at this time in writing. All comments and disclosures are due by September 8, 2024, and should be directed to info@mismo.org
