Wisconsin Bankers Association (WBA) forms have been accepted as standard by bank regulatory agencies, attorneys and the Wisconsin judiciary. In conjunction with legal counsel, these forms are developed and reviewed by the WBA Drafting Team, helping to ensure compliance with State and Federal regulations.
VENDOR FORMS PROTECTED BY COPYRIGHT
As a reminder, most forms produced by vendors are covered by copyright. This includes forms produced by Financial Institution Products Corporation® (FIPCO). Reproduction of a form protected by copyright, by any means or method, is a violation of law unless the form producer holding the copyright provides express permission for the form to be reproduced. In order to maintain the protections copyright affords, violations are pursued by the form producer and can be quite costly to the person or entity committing the violation. Thus, users of forms must not reproduce forms by any means unless permitted to do so by the producer of the form.
Electronic files of commonly used WBA forms are available in various formats. These WBA form images are available using Microsoft® Word, Adobe Reader or other third party software systems. The images, or eForms, can be electronically filled out and printed.
WBA Hard Copy Forms
Over 430 forms relating to consumer, real estate, commercial, agricultural and municipal loans; deposit accounts; safe deposit boxes; and deposit and operations are available. Forms are purchased by financial institutions, dealerships, attorneys and realtors.
FIPCO routinely updates the form images in conjunction with all necessary regulatory changes, compliance issues and form enhancements. Updates contain the form files, as well as the text and document files that provide the supplemental Hard Copy Form Instructions. These instructions can be printed in Notepad, Microsoft® Word or Corel® Word Perfect. For added user convenience, all updates to form images can be delivered electronically.
