General description of report: In accordance with the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (S.A.F.E. Act), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Regulation G requires MLOs to register with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLS or Registry),1 maintain this registration, obtain a unique identifier, and disclose to consumers upon request and through the Registry their unique identifier and the MLO’s employment history and publicly adjudicated disciplinary and enforcement actions. The CFPB’s regulation also requires the institutions employing MLOs to adopt and follow written policies and procedures to ensure that their employees comply with these requirements and to conduct annual independent compliance tests. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The CFPB’s Regulation G is authorized pursuant to the S.A.F.E. Act and the Dodd-Frank Act, which transferred to the CFPB the ‘‘consumer financial protection functions,’’ including the S.A.F.E. Act, previously vested in certain other Federal agencies.2 The Board is authorized to enforce consumer financial protection functions, including the CFPB’s Regulation G, with respect to SMBs with $10 billion or less in total assets that are not affiliates of insured depository institutions with total assets of more than $10 billion and the subsidiaries of such SMBs that are not functionally regulated within the meaning of section 5(c)(5) of the Bank Holding Company Act (see 12 U.S.C. 1844(c)(5)) under section 1061 of the Dodd Frank Act.3 The International Banking Act (IBA) requires ‘‘every branch or agency of a foreign bank and every commercial lending company controlled by one or more foreign banks . . .

The unique identifier of MLOs must be made public and is not considered confidential. In addition, most of the information that MLOs submit in order to register with the NMLS will be publicly available. However, certain identifying data about individuals who act as MLOs may be treated as confidential pursuant to exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which protects from disclosure information that ‘‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ 6 With respect to the information collection requirements imposed on banking organizations, because banking organizations are required to retain their own records and make certain disclosures to customers, the FOIA would only be implicated if the Board’s examiners obtained a copy of these records as part of the examination or supervision of a financial institution. Records obtained in this manner may be exempt from disclosure under FOIA exemption 8, regarding examinationrelated materials.7 Current actions: On January 16, 2020, the Board published an initial notice in the Federal Register (85 FR 2742) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the CFPB G.

The two options to participate in the Information Comparison with Insurance Data program are (1) insurers submit information concerning claims, settlements, awards, and payments to the federal OCSE. OCSE compares it to information pertaining to parents who owe past-due support. (2) OCSE will send a file containing information about parents who owe past-due support to the insurer, or their agent, to compare with their claims, settlements, awards, and payments. The insurer or their agent sends any resulting insurance data matches to OCSE. On a daily basis, OCSE sends the results of the insurance data match in an ‘‘Insurance Match Response Record’’ to child support agencies responsible for collecting pastdue support. The child support agencies use the insurance data matches to collect past-due support from the insurance proceeds.

transferred to the CFPB the ``consumer financial protection

other Federal agencies.\2\ The Board is authorized to enforce consumer 
financial protection functions, including the CFPB's Regulation G, with 
respect to SMBs with $10 billion or less in total assets that are not

    With respect to the information collection requirements imposed on 
banking organizations, because banking organizations are required to 
retain their own records and make certain disclosures to customers, the 
FOIA would only be implicated if the Board's examiners obtained a copy 
of these records as part of the examination or supervision of a 
financial institution. Records obtained in this manner may be exempt
