Fed extends TILA disclosure requirements
On September 1, the Federal Reserve Board adopted a proposal to extend the recordkeeping and disclosure requirements associated with the TILA, implemented by Regulation Z for three years, with revision. While Dodd-Frank transferred rule-writing authority for Fed-supervision institutions under Regulation Z to the CFPB, the Fed is taking action to “minimize burden on small entities through tailored supervision, including through a risk-focused consumer compliance supervision program and an examination frequency policy that provides for lengthened time between examinations for institutions with a lower risk profile.” As previously covered by InfoBytes, the Board proposed in April to revise FR Z (OMB No. 7100-0199) to: (i) include burden connected to disclosure requirements in “rules issued by the Bureau since the Board’s last Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) submission, as well as for one information collection for which the Bureau estimates burden” but the Board formerly did not; (ii) break out and clarify “burden estimates” that were formerly consolidated; and (iii) eliminate burden associated with some requirements due to the Bureau accounting for burden for the entire industry, or because the burden is now deemed a part of an institution’s usual and customary business practices. The revisions will be implemented as proposed and are effective immediately.
