CFPB Publishes Proposed Rulemaking on the Registry of Nonbank Covered Persons Subject to Certain Agency and Court Orders
On January 30, 2023, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register on the Registry of Nonbank Covered Persons Subject to Certain Agency and Court Orders. The proposed rule would require certain nonbank covered person entities that are under certain final public orders obtained or issued by a Federal, State, or local agency to report the existence of such orders to a CFPB registry. The CFPB is proposing to include all final public written orders and judgments (including consent and stipulated orders and judgments) obtained or issued by the CFPB or any government agency for violation of certain consumer protection laws. The CFPB is also proposing to require certain supervised nonbanks to submit annual written statements regarding compliance with each underlying order, signed by an attesting executive who has knowledge of the entity’s relevant systems and procedures for achieving compliance and control over the entity’s compliance efforts.
