Authored by: Bryan Cave

The CFPB is republishing regulations for which it is assuming authority from other agencies pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act and making technical and conforming changes to reflect the transfer of authority and other changes required by the act. Among others, the CFPB issued interim final rules with request for public comment for the Federal Reserve’s Regulation E (Electronic Fund Transfers, Regulation P (Privacy of Consumer Financial Information) and Regulation Z (Truth in Lending).

The preambles to the interim final rules state that the regulations do not impose any new substantive obligations on persons subject to the existing regulations as published by the Federal Reserve.

The interim final rules became effective Dec. 30, 2011. The Reg E interim final rule is available at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-12-27/pdf/2011-31725.pdf; comments are due by Feb. 27, 2012. Reg P is available at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-12-21/pdf/2011-31729.pdf; comments are due by Feb. 21, 2012.
