SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 17, 2014, the Bureau issued the Proposed Policy Statement. The Proposed Policy Statement was published in the Federal Register on July 23, 2014. The Proposed Policy VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:28 Aug 01, 2014 Jkt 232001 Statement seeks comment, data and information from the public on the Bureau’s proposal to include narratives in the Consumer Complaint Database. On December 8, 2011, the Bureau published in the Federal Register a proposed policy statement describing its plans to disclose certain data about the credit card complaints that consumers submit to the Bureau (December 2011 Proposed Policy Statement).1 After receiving and considering a number of comments, the Bureau finalized its plans for publically disclosing data from consumer credit card complaints and published the final policy statement on June 22, 2012 (June 2012 Policy Statement).2 Also on June 22, 2012, the Bureau concurrently published in the Federal Register a proposed policy statement describing its plans to disclose data from consumer complaints about financial products and services other than credit cards (June 2012 Proposed Policy Statement).3 After receiving and considering a number of comments, the Bureau published the final policy statement on March 25, 2013 (March 2013 Policy Statement).4 In the June 2012 Proposed Policy Statement, the Bureau did not propose including narratives in the Consumer Complaint Database. Notwithstanding this, the Bureau received a significant number of comments specific to narrative disclosure. Consumer, civil rights, and open government groups supported disclosure on the grounds that disclosing narratives would provide consumers with more useful information on which to base financial decisions and would allow reviewers to assess the validity of the complaints. Two privacy groups, while acknowledging privacy risk stemming from publication of ‘‘non-identifiable’’ data and calling for further study, supported disclosure on an opt-in basis. Trade groups and industry commenters nearly uniformly opposed disclosure of consumer complaint narratives. The Bureau believes that the utility of the overall Consumer Complaint Database would greatly increase with the inclusion of narratives. This could lead to increased use by advocates, academics, the press, and entrepreneurs, which itself would lead to increased consumer contacts with the Bureau. The Bureau believes that the aforementioned increase in benefits and utility would lead to an increase in 1 76 FR 76628, Dec. 8, 2011. FR 37616, June 22, 2012. 3 77 FR 37616, June 22, 2012. 4 78 FR 21218, April 10, 2013. 2 77 PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 consumer contacts, which would have a positive effect on Bureau operations. As a critical mass of complaint data is achieved and exceeded, the representativeness of Bureau complaint data increases. Thus, narratives would not only enhance the above consumer benefits but also the many Bureau functions that rely, in part, on complaint data to perform their respective missions including the Offices of Supervision, Enforcement, and Fair Lending, Consumer Education and Engagement, and Research, Markets, and Rulemaking. The Bureau balances interested parties’ desire to have additional time to consider the issues raised in the Proposed Policy Statement, gather data, and prepare their responses, with the need to proceed expeditiously to consider comments and determine whether to issue a final policy statement. The Bureau believes that a 60-day extension is appropriate. The comment period therefore will close on September 22, 2014. Dated: July 29, 2014. Elizabeth A. Corbett, Deputy Chief of Staff, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.
