Rules of Practice for Issuance of Temporary Cease-and-Desist Orders

On September 26, 2013, 78 FR 59163 , the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) published in the Federal Register an interim final rule establishing procedures for the issuance of a temporary cease-and-desist order (TCDO) pursuant to section 1053(c) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), which requires the Bureau to prescribe rules establishing procedures for the conduct of adjudication proceedings. After reviewing and considering the single public comment offered on its interim final rule, the Bureau adopts the interim final rule without change.

Rules of practice for issuance of temporary cease and desist orders - Sept. 26, 2013

  • The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) to prescribe rules establishing procedures for the conduct of adjudication proceedings. On June 29, 2012, the Bureau published the final Rules of Practice for Adjudication Proceedings. That final rule, however, does not apply to the issuance of a temporary cease-and-desist order (TCDO) pursuant to section 1053(c) of the Dodd-Frank Act. The Bureau now issues this interim final rule governing such issuance and seeks public comments.
