General description of report: The ECOA prohibits discrimination in any aspect of a credit transaction because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age, receipt of public assistance, or the fact that the applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. To aid in implementation of this prohibition, the statute and Regulation B subject creditors to various mandatory disclosure requirements, notification provisions informing applicants of action taken on the credit application, provision of appraisal reports in connection with mortgages, credit history reporting, monitoring rules, and recordkeeping requirements. These requirements are triggered by specific events, and disclosures must be provided within the time periods established by the statute and regulation. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The ECOA authorizes the CFPB to issue regulations to carry out the statute’s purposes.1 The ECOA also directs the CFPB to promulgate regulations requiring covered entities to maintain records evidencing compliance with the statute for at least one year.2 These regulations impose disclosure and recordkeeping requirements on Board-supervised PO 00000 entities. Compliance with the recordkeeping and disclosure requirements of the CFPB’s Regulation B is mandatory. The disclosures, records, policies, and procedures required by Regulation B are not required to be submitted to the Board. This information would generally only be obtained if Federal Reserve examiners retained a copy as part of an examination or supervision of a bank, in which case the information may be treated as confidential under exemption 8 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).3 In addition, exemptions 4 and 6 of the FOIA may also apply to certain information obtained by the Board. Exemption 4 may apply if the information is confidential commercial or financial information that is both customarily and actually treated as private by the respondent.4 Exemption 6 may apply to information, the disclosure of which would ‘‘constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ 5 Consultation outside the agency: The Board consulted with the CFPB regarding the estimated burden of this information collection.
