General description of report: This information collection is mandatory (15 U.S.C. § 1681s-2(a)(7)). Because the records are maintained at state member banks and the notices are not provided to the Federal Reserve, no issue of confidentiality arises under the Freedom of Information Act.

Abstract: Financial institutions that (1) extend credit and regularly and in the ordinary course of business furnish information to a nationwide consumer reporting agency, and (2) furnish negative information to such an agency regarding credit extended to a customer must provide a clear and conspicuous notice to the customer, in writing, about furnishing this negative information.

Current Actions: On September 6, 2007, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (72 FR 51228) requesting public comment for sixty days on the extension, without revision, of these disclosure requirements; the comment period expired on November 5, 2007. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments.
