Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) transferred rulemaking authority for a number of consumer financial protection laws from seven Federal agencies to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) as of July 21, 2011. The Bureau is in the process of republishing the regulations implementing those laws with technical and conforming changes to reflect the transfer of authority and certain other changes made by the Dodd-Frank Act. In light of the transfer of certain rulemaking authority for the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Trade Commission, National Credit Union Administration, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and Office of Thrift Supervision to the Bureau, the Bureau is publishing for public comment an interim final rule establishing a new Regulation V (Fair Credit Reporting). This interim final rule does not impose any new substantive obligations on persons subject to the existing FCRA regulations.

Agency Contact: Catherine Henderson or Greg Evans, Office of Regulations, at (202) 435-7700.

This rule is final. Its effective date is December 30, 2011.
