General description of report: This information collection is mandatory (12 U.S.C. 248) and by section 504 of Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) (15 U.S.C § 6804). Since the Federal Reserve does not collect any information, no issue of confidentiality normally arises.

Abstract: The information collection pursuant to Regulation P is triggered by the establishment of a relationship between a customer and a financial institution. The regulation ensures that financial institutions provide customers notice of the privacy policies and practices of financial institutions and a means to prevent the disclosure of nonpublic personal information, in certain circumstances. Where applicable, financial institutions are required to provide an initial notice and an annual notice of their privacy policies and practices, opt-out notices, and revised notices containing changes in policies and procedures.

On July 3, 2006, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (71 FR 37935) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the reporting and disclosure requirements of Regulation P. The comment period for this notice expired on September 1, 2006. No comments were received.
