CFPB Issues RFI on Guidance and Implementation Support
Friday, March 30, 2018 6:35 AM

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau yesterday issued a Request for Information on the Bureau’s guidance and implementation support. The Bureau is seeking comments and information from interested parties to assist in assessing the overall effectiveness and accessibility of its guidance materials and activities, including implementation support.

The Bureau is also considering whether it would be appropriate to make changes to the formats, processes, and delivery methods for providing this guidance and whether it would be appropriate to make changes to the disclaimers used on certain forms of guidance.

This is the tenth in a series of RFIs announced as part of Acting Director Mick Mulvaney’s call for evidence to ensure the Bureau is fulfilling its proper and appropriate functions. This RFI will provide an opportunity for the public to submit feedback and suggest ways to improve outcomes for both consumers and covered entities. The next RFI in the series will address consumer education, and will be issued next week.

View the RFI on guidance and implementation support.

The CFPB will begin accepting comments once the RFI is printed in the Federal Register, which is expected to occur on approximately April 2. The RFI will be open for comment for 90 days.

The Bureau anticipates issuing RFIs on the following topics in the coming weeks:

  • Consumer Education
  • Consumer Inquiries 

The Bureau has also extended the comment deadlines for the first three RFIs issued as part of the call for evidence. View the new deadlines.
