The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) is amending Regulation P to implement a December 2015 statutory amendment to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act providing an exception to the annual notice requirement, for financial institutions that meet certain conditions.
Rules listed here are final rules issued by the CFPB. To identify all the rules related to a single consumer financial product, use the filter tool below.
Types of final rules
Other than interim final rules, this includes all CFPB final rules, including procedural and interpretive rules. Generally, final rules go through notice and comment before issuance.
Interim Final Rule
Under some circumstances, the CFPB may issue final rules without a comment period before issuance. The CFPB may request comment on these rules and may later alter the rules, if necessary.
Finalization of Interim Final Rules (Subject to Any Intervening Amendments) Under Consumer Financial Protection Laws
Title X of the Dodd-Frank Act transferred rulemaking authority for certain consumer financial protection laws to the Bureau. The Bureau republished the existing regulations implementing those laws as interim final rules, with technical and conforming changes to reflect the transfer of authority and certain other changes made by the Dodd-Frank Act. This final rule adopts those rules as final, subject to any intervening final rules published by the Bureau.
The amendment creates an alternative delivery method for this annual disclosure, which financial institutions will be able to use under certain circumstances.
