On June 2, 1997 (62 FR 30222), HUD published an interim rule, entitled “Delegation of Insuring Authority to Direct Endorsement Mortgagees,” which, in part, provided that Lender Insurance mortgagees must maintain records, including origination files, in a manner and for a time period to be prescribed by the Assistant Secretary for Housing—Federal Housing Commissioner, and must make them available to authorized HUD staff upon request (24 CFR 203.255(f)).

At the time of the publication of the interim rule, the information collection requirements contained in § 203.255(f) had been submitted to, but not yet approved by, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). Under the Paperwork Reduction Act, an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless and until the collection displays a valid OMB control number.

OMB approved the information collection contained in 24 CFR 203.255(f), as amended by HUD's June 2, 1997, interim rule, on July 10, 1997. Accordingly, the information collection requirements were effective upon that date. The information collection requirements at § 203.255(f) were originally assigned OMB control number 2502-0365. In July 2000, OMB control number 2502-0059 replaced OMB control number 2502-0365 as the valid control number that authorizes the information collection requirements. OMB control number 2502-0059 remains the currently approved control number for § 203.255(f).
