Automated Batch Interface
The Batch Interface allows Data Furnishers to
receive Consumer Dispute Verification (ACDV) requests in
XML batch file format. The Data Furnisher's development effort
to implement the Batch Interface will vary depending on the Data
Furnisher's internal business and compliance requirements.
The Batch Interface uses the Connect:Direct software package and Virtual Private Networks (VPNS) to provide maximum data integrity for the file transfers. Each DF that is to use the Batch Interface must be able to communicate with the e-OSCAR data center using Connect:Direct. The Connect:Direct software at the DF facility must be configured to enable the agreed disposition of files on receipt and the agreed action to be taken on completion of the file transfer.
Please Note: The Batch Interface is not an alternative to the regular activity reporting process. e-OSCAR may not be used to add or create a record on a consumer's file or as substitute for "in-cycle" reporting to the credit bureaus. The Batch Interface is a means for Data Furnishers to respond to ACDV requests and is not available for the submission of AUDs.
