Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, Without Revision, the Following Information Collection Report title: Disclosure Requirements Associated with Bureau’s Regulation M. Agency form number: FR M. OMB control number: 7100–0202. Frequency: On occasion. Respondents: The FR M panel comprises state member banks with assets of $10 billion or less that are not affiliated with an insured depository institution with assets over $10 billion (irrespective of the consolidated assets of any holding company); nondepository affiliates of such state member banks; and non-depository affiliates of bank holding companies that are not affiliated with an insured depository institution with assets over $10 billion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Bureau, and not the Board, has supervisory authority for Regulation M with respect to automobile leasing over non-banks defined as ‘‘larger participants’’ in the automobile finance market pursuant to 12 U.S.C. 5514 (implemented by 12 CFR 1090.108). VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:57 Apr 15, 2021 Jkt 253001 Estimated number of respondents: 4. Estimated average hours per response: Lease disclosures, 0.11; Advertising rules, 0.42. Estimated annual burden hours: Lease disclosures, 252; Advertising rules,7. General description of report: The Consumer Leasing Act (CLA) and Regulation M are intended to provide consumers with meaningful disclosures about the costs and terms of leases for personal property. The disclosures enable consumers to compare the terms for a particular lease with those for other leases and, when appropriate, to compare lease terms with those for credit transactions. The CLA and Regulation M also contain rules about advertising consumer leases and limit the size of balloon payments in consumer lease transactions. The Bureau’s Regulation M applies to all types of lessors of personal property (except motor vehicle dealers excluded from the Bureau’s authority under Dodd-Frank Act section 1029, which are covered by the Board’s Regulation M). The CLA and Regulation M require lessors uniformly to disclose to consumers the costs, liabilities, and terms of consumer lease transactions. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The FR M is authorized pursuant to sections 105(a) and 187 of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), which require that the Bureau prescribe regulations regarding the disclosure requirements relating to consumer lease transactions. The FR M is mandatory. Because the disclosures and records comprising the FR M are maintained at each banking organization, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) would only be implicated if the Board obtained such records as part of the examination or supervision of a banking organization. In the event the records are obtained by the Board as part of an examination or supervision of a financial institution, this information would be considered confidential pursuant to exemption 8 of the FOIA, which protects information contained in ‘‘examination, operating, or condition reports’’ obtained in the bank supervisory process.

Proposed revisions: The Board proposes to revise FR Z to: (1) Add burden related to disclosure requirements in rules issued by the Bureau since the Board’s last Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) submission, as well as for one information collection for which the Bureau estimates burden but the Board previously did not; (2) break out and clarify burden estimates that were previously consolidated; and (3) eliminate burden associated with certain requirements because the Bureau accounts for burden for the entire industry, or because the burden is now deemed de minimis or a part of an institution’s usual and customary business practices. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The disclosure, recordkeeping, and other requirements of Regulation Z are authorized by TILA, which directs the Bureau and, for certain lenders, the Board to issue regulations implementing the statute. The obligation to respond is mandatory. The disclosures, records, policies and procedures required by Regulation Z are not required to be submitted to the Board. To the extent such information is obtained by the Board through the examination process, they may be kept confidential under exemption 8 of the Freedom of Information Act, which protects information contained in or related to an examination of a financial institution.5 Consultation outside the agency: The Board consulted with the Bureau regarding the estimated burden of this information collection. 55 PO 00000 U.S.C. 552(b)(8).

Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Extend for Three Years, With 
Revision, the Following Information Collection

    Report title: Recordkeeping and Disclosure Requirements Associated 
with
    Truth in Lending (Regulation Z).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Truth in Lending Act (TILA) is codified at 15 U.S.C. 1601 et 
seq. Regulation Z is published by the Board at 12 CFR part 226 and 
by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) at 12 CFR part 
1026.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Agency form number: FR Z.
    OMB control number: 7100-0199.
    Frequency: Annually, on occasion.
    Respondents: The FR Z panel comprises state member banks with 
assets of $10 billion or less that are not affiliated with an insured 
depository institution with assets over $10 billion (irrespective of 
the consolidated assets of any holding company); non-depository 
affiliates of such state member banks; and non-depository affiliates of 
bank holding companies that are not affiliated with an insured 
depository institution with assets over $10 billion.\2\ However, the 
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) and the Federal Trade 
Commission (FTC) also have administrative enforcement authority over 
nondepository institutions for Regulation Z.\3\ Accordingly, the Bureau 
allocates to itself half of the estimated burden to non-depository 
institutions, with the other half allocated to the FTC.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See, e.g., 12 U.S.C. 5515-5516.
    \3\ See 12 U.S.C. 5514-5516.
    \4\ See, e.g., 78 FR 6408, 6481 (January 30, 2013); 78 FR 11280, 
11408 (February 15, 2013); 78 FR 79730, 80100 (December 31, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Board's ability to reduce regulatory burden for small entities 
under Regulation Z is limited because, as noted, the Dodd-Frank Act 
transferred rule writing authority for Board-supervised institutions 
under Regulation Z to the Bureau. Nonetheless, the Board has taken 
steps to minimize burden on small entities through tailored 
supervision, including through a risk-focused consumer compliance 
supervision program and an examination frequency policy that provides 
for lengthened time between examinations for institutions with a lower 
risk profile.
    The Board allocates to itself all estimated burden to state member 
banks with assets of $10 billion or less that are not affiliated with 
an insured depository institution with assets over $10 billion.

    General description of report: The Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and 
Regulation Z promote the informed use of credit to consumers for 
personal, family, or household purposes by requiring disclosures about 
its terms and costs, as well as ensure that consumers are provided with 
timely information on the nature and costs of the residential real 
estate settlement process.
    Proposed revisions: The Board proposes to revise FR Z to: (1) Add 
burden related to disclosure requirements in rules issued by the Bureau 
since the Board's last Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) submission, as 
well as for one information collection for which the Bureau estimates 
burden but the Board previously did not; (2) break out and clarify 
burden estimates that were previously consolidated; and (3) eliminate 
burden associated with certain requirements because the Bureau accounts 
for burden for the entire industry, or because the burden is now deemed 
de minimis or a part of an institution's usual and customary business 
practices.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The disclosure, 
recordkeeping, and other requirements of Regulation Z are authorized by 
TILA, which directs the Bureau and, for certain lenders, the Board to 
issue regulations implementing the statute. The obligation to respond 
is mandatory.
    The disclosures, records, policies and procedures required by 
Regulation Z are not required to be submitted to the Board. To the 
extent such information is obtained by the Board through the 
examination process, they may be kept confidential under exemption 8 of 
the Freedom of Information Act, which protects information contained in 
or related to an examination of a financial institution.\5\
