The American Land Title Association (ALTA) today announced the launch of "The Title Industry Consumer Initiative," which details the association’s five-point strategy for improving industry oversight and educating and protecting consumers. The initiative was developed in response to the recommendations by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) in a report issued in April 2007.

The Title Industry Consumer Initiative includes a consumer education program, the adoption of a "Principles of Conduct," member education on regulatory compliance and ethical standards, and a plan for working more closely with state and federal regulators to ensure that the title industry is meeting the needs of consumers.
