Download as PDF rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 24182 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 78 / Monday, April 23, 2012 / Notices misrepresentations about the terms of mortgage credit products in commercial communications and requires that covered persons keep certain related records for a period of twenty-four (24) months from last dissemination. Specifically, Regulation N requires covered persons to retain: (1) Copies of all materially different commercial communications disseminated, including but not limited to sales scripts, training materials, related marketing materials, Web sites, and weblogs; (2) documents describing or evidencing all mortgage credit products available to consumers during the time period in which each commercial communication was disseminated, including but not limited to the names and terms of each such mortgage credit product available to consumers; and (3) documents describing or evidencing all additional products or services (such as credit insurance or credit disability insurance) that are or may be offered or provided with the mortgage credit products available to consumers during the time period in which each commercial communication was disseminated, including but not limited to the names and terms of each such additional product or service available to consumers. A failure to keep such records is a violation of Regulation N. The information that Regulation N requires covered persons to retain is necessary to ensure efficient and effective law enforcement to address deceptive practices that occur in the mortgage advertising area. To gauge whether covered persons are complying with Regulation N or making prohibited misrepresentations, it is necessary to review the commercial communications that were disseminated and the information about the mortgage credit products and relevant additional products or services available during the time period in which each commercial communication was disseminated. Furthermore, a strong recordkeeping provision is necessary to foster effective enforcement of Regulation N. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for profits. Estimated Number of Responses: 1,300,000. Estimated Time per Response: 3 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 3,900,000.
