Adverse Action

An adverse action is defined as a negative change to the terms of a customer's account with a financial institution. This could be, for example, the closure of an account or a decrease in the credit limit. Other examples are the rejection of an application for credit or an increase in loan interest rates. In principle, any measure that makes it more difficult or more expensive for consumers to obtain credit can be regarded as an adverse action.
