SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘Dodd-Frank Act’’), Public Law 111–203, 124 Stat. 1376 (2010), transferred the Commission’s rulemaking authority under the mortgage provisions in section 626 of the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act, as amended,1 to the CFPB.2 On December 16, 2011, the CFPB republished the Mortgage Assistance Relief Services (‘‘MARS’’) Rule as Regulation O (12 CFR 1015).3 As a result, the Commission subsequently rescinded its MARS Rule (16 CFR part 322).4 Nonetheless, under the DoddFrank Act, the FTC retains its authority to bring law enforcement actions to enforce Regulation O.5 Regulation O contains information collection requirements that have been approved by OMB under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.

Burden Statement khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Because the FTC and CFPB share enforcement authority for this rule, the FTC is seeking clearance for one-half of the following burden estimates. These estimates are based on the agencies’ law enforcement experience and the recent analysis conducted as part of the CFPB’s clearance renewal for the information collections associated with Regulation O.6 The FTC and CFPB estimate that there are approximately 120 for-profit, non-attorney entities offering MARS services and subject to Regulation O’s requirements.7 Estimated annual hours burden: 360 (FTC share). FTC staff estimates that compliance with Regulation O’s disclosure requirements for MARS providers requires 6 hours of labor annually.8 Multiplying this figure by 120 entities yields a total burden for covered providers of 720 hours annually.9 For Information collection Number of respondents Annual burden hours per respondent FTC 50% Share ................................................................... 120 ........................ 6 ........................ 58389 PRA purposes, the FTC and CFPB share enforcement authority and split the information collection burden associated with the Rule equally. As a result, the FTC assumes 360 hours of this total annual hours burden. Estimated associated labor cost: $11,747 (FTC share). In calculating the associated labor costs, FTC staff estimates that a compliance officer or equivalent will prepare the required disclosures at an hourly rate of $32.63/hr.10 Thus, the estimated annual labor cost is $23,494 (120 providers × 6 hours × $33.26) of which the FTC assumes half, or $11,747.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform 
and Consumer Protection Act (``Dodd-Frank Act''), Public Law 111-203, 
124 Stat. 1376 (2010), transferred the Commission's rulemaking 
authority under the mortgage provisions in section 626 of the 2009 
Omnibus Appropriations Act, as amended,\1\ to the CFPB.\2\ On December 
16, 2011, the CFPB republished the Mortgage Assistance Relief Services 
(``MARS'') Rule as Regulation O (12 CFR 1015).\3\ As a result, the 
Commission subsequently rescinded its MARS Rule (16 CFR part 322).\4\ 
Nonetheless, under the Dodd-Frank Act, the FTC retains its authority to 
bring law enforcement actions to enforce Regulation O.\5\

    Regulation O contains information collection requirements that have 
been approved by OMB under the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. (OMB Control 
Number 3084-0157). The FTC, as a co-enforcer, seeks OMB clearance for 
its share of the estimated PRA burden for the information collection 
requirements of Regulation O. The Rule includes disclosure requirements 
to assist purchasers of mortgage assistance relief services in making 
well-informed decisions and avoiding unfair or

[[Page 58389]]

deceptive acts and practices. The information that must be retained 
under Regulation O's recordkeeping requirements is used by the CFPB and 
the FTC for enforcement purposes and to ensure compliance by MARS 
providers with Regulation O.

Burden Statement

    Because the FTC and CFPB share enforcement authority for this rule, 
the FTC is seeking clearance for one-half of the following burden 
estimates. These estimates are based on the agencies' law enforcement 
experience and the recent analysis conducted as part of the CFPB's 
clearance renewal for the information collections associated with 
Regulation O.\6\ The FTC and CFPB estimate that there are approximately 
120 for-profit, non-attorney entities offering MARS services and 
subject to Regulation O's requirements.\7\

Collection Activities: Comment Request, 83 FR 45,111 (Nov. 5, 2018).

31, 2022.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Estimated annual hours burden: 360 (FTC share).
    FTC staff estimates that compliance with Regulation O's disclosure 
requirements for MARS providers requires 6 hours of labor annually.\8\ 
Multiplying this figure by 120 entities yields a total burden for 
covered providers of 720 hours annually.\9\ For PRA purposes, the FTC 
and CFPB share enforcement authority and split the information 
collection burden associated with the Rule equally. As a result, the 
FTC assumes 360 hours of this total annual hours burden.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Estimated associated labor cost: $11,747 (FTC share).
    In calculating the associated labor costs, FTC staff estimates that 
a compliance officer or equivalent will prepare the required 
disclosures at an hourly rate of $32.63/hr.\10\ Thus, the estimated 
annual labor cost is $23,494 (120 providers x 6 hours x $33.26) of 
which the FTC assumes half, or $11,747.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ This estimate is based on the median hourly wage for a 
Compliance Officer (occupation code 13-1041) of $32.63 provided by 
the Bureau of Labor Statistics. See BLS Occupational Employment and 
Wages estimate of the median hourly wage for a Compliance Officer 
(occupation code 13-1041) of $32.63, available at https://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes131041.htm.
