CFPB releases enforcement database
On November 25, the CFPB announced a refreshed website that includes an “interactive enforcement database” to assist the public in tracking the Bureau’s enforcement actions. According to a blog post accompanying the announcement, the enforcement database identifies each public enforcement action by its initial filing date and provides the specific consumer relief associated with each resolution, including the estimated number of consumers or consumer accounts eligible to receive relief, and the total amount of civil money penalties ordered. The data does not include any non-public information about consumer relief and penalties, such as the monetary amounts actually paid and whether those funds are paid to consumers or disgorged.
Additionally, the website updates include a page for petitions for rulemaking, allowing users to search for and find petitions in one centralized location. The Bureau has also archived content that is older than two years old. The archived materials are still accessible, but will be identified as archived and include a note that they may not be the most up-to-date resources offered by the Bureau.
