18.104.22.168 CFPB Now Issues Regulation B and Its Official Interpretations
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) now has authority to issue Regulation B.52 On December 21, 2011, the CFPB issued its version of Regulation B and its official interpretations.53 The Federal Reserve Board (FRB) has not withdrawn its Regulation B, certain kinds of credit are not within the CFPB’s enforcement authority, and the FRB regulation thus may remain relevant.
At the moment, the major change is that 12 C.F.R. part 202 citations are replaced by citations to 12 C.F.R. part 1002. Other changes are stylistic and not substantive. Appendices B and C, infra, contain the CFPB’s version Regulation B and its official interpretations have changed.
