    Report title: Disclosure Requirements Associated with the Consumer 
Financial Protection 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); 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. 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).

    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

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 
may 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.\1\
