General description of report: The disclosure, record-keeping, and other requirements of Regulation Z are authorized by the TILA, which directs the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and, for certain lenders, the Federal Reserve to issue regulations implementing the statute. Covered lenders are required to comply with the recordkeeping, reporting, and disclosure provisions of Regulation Z. Regulation Z is chiefly a disclosure regulation, so the issue of confidentiality does not normally arise. One aspect of the rule requires certain card issuers to submit annual reports to the CFPB, but no reports are filed with the Federal Reserve. Abstract: TILA and Regulation Z ensure adequate disclosure of the costs and terms of credit to consumers. For open-end credit, such as credit cards and home-equity lines of credit (HELOCs), creditors are required to disclose information about the initial costs and terms and to provide periodic statements of account activity, notices of changes in terms, and statements of rights concerning billing error procedures. For closed-end loans, such as mortgage and installment loans, cost VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 May 04, 2016 Jkt 238001 disclosures are required prior to and at consummation. Special disclosures are required for certain products, such as reverse mortgages and high cost mortgages with rates and fees above specified thresholds. TILA and Regulation Z also contain rules concerning credit advertising.1 Creditors are required to comply with Regulation Z’s disclosure and other requirements unless the transaction is exempt.2 Regulation Z generally does not apply to consumer credit transactions that exceed a threshold amount, adjusted annually for inflation.3 The threshold amount for credit extended during 2015 was $54,600; this threshold will remain the same in 2016. However, regardless of the amount of credit extended, Regulation Z applies to: (1) Consumer credit secured by real property; (2) consumer credit secured by personal property used or expected to be used as the principal swelling of the consumer; and (3) private student loans. Current Actions: On February 19, 2016 the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 8492) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of Reg Z. The comment period for this notice expired on April 19, 2016. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The revisions will be implemented as proposed.

rules (all credit types): Advertising rules, 992 respondents; and 
Record retention (one-time), 634 respondents.
    General description of report: The disclosure, record-keeping, and 
other requirements of Regulation Z are authorized by the TILA, which 
directs the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and, for 
certain lenders, the Federal Reserve to issue regulations implementing 
the statute. Covered lenders are required to comply with the 
recordkeeping, reporting, and disclosure provisions of Regulation Z. 
Regulation Z is chiefly a disclosure regulation, so the issue of 
confidentiality does not normally arise. One aspect of the rule 
requires certain card issuers to submit annual reports to the CFPB, but 
no reports are filed with the Federal Reserve.
    Abstract: TILA and Regulation Z ensure adequate disclosure of the 
costs and terms of credit to consumers. For open-end credit, such as 
credit cards and home-equity lines of credit (HELOCs), creditors are 
required to disclose information about the initial costs and terms and 
to provide periodic statements of account activity, notices of changes 
in terms, and statements of rights concerning billing error procedures. 
For closed-end loans, such as mortgage and installment loans, cost 
disclosures are required prior to and at consummation. Special 
disclosures are required for certain products, such as reverse 
mortgages and high cost mortgages with rates and fees above specified 
thresholds. TILA and Regulation Z also contain rules concerning credit 
advertising.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In addition, Regulation Z contains requirements that are not 
considered information collections and thus are not addressed here.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Creditors are required to comply with Regulation Z's disclosure and 
other requirements unless the transaction is exempt.\2\ Regulation Z 
generally does not apply to consumer credit transactions that exceed a 
threshold amount, adjusted annually for inflation.\3\ The threshold 
amount for credit extended during 2015 was $54,600; this threshold will 
remain the same in 2016.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Exemptions include business credit, credit over applicable 
threshold amounts, public utility credit, securities or commodities 
accounts, home fuel budget plans, certain student loan programs, and 
employer-sponsored retirement plans. See 12 CFR 1026.3.
    \3\ 12 CFR 1026.3(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    However, regardless of the amount of credit extended, Regulation Z 
applies to: (1) Consumer credit secured by real property; (2) consumer 
credit secured by personal property used or expected to be used as the 
principal swelling of the consumer; and (3) private student loans.
    Current Actions: On February 19, 2016 the Federal Reserve published 
a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 8492) requesting public comment 
for 60 days on the extension, with revision, of Reg Z. The comment 
period for this notice expired on April 19, 2016. The Federal Reserve 
did not receive any comments. The revisions will be implemented as 
proposed.
