Supplemental Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection

The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB or Bureau), with the concurrence of the Office of Government Ethics (OGE), is issuing this interim final rule for employees of the Bureau. This rule supplements the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch (OGE Standards) issued by OGE and is necessary because it addresses ethical issues unique to the Bureau. The rule establishes restrictions on outside employment and business activities; prohibitions on the ownership of certain financial interests; restrictions on seeking, obtaining or renegotiating credit and indebtedness; prohibitions on recommendations concerning debt and equity interests; disqualification requirements based on credit or indebtedness; prohibitions on purchasing certain assets; and restrictions on participating in particular matters involving outside entities.
