Debt Collection Practices (Regulation F)

The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection proposes to amend Regulation F, 12 CFR Part 1006, which implements the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), to prescribe Federal rules governing the activities of debt collectors covered by the FDCPA. The proposal would, among other things, address communications in connection with debt collection; interpret and apply prohibitions on harassment or abuse, false or misleading representations, and unfair practices in debt collection; and clarify requirements for certain consumer-facing debt collection disclosures.

The Bureau is releasing a table of contents and other supporting materials to assist members of the public in reviewing the proposal.
