Title: Report of Terms of Credit Card Plans.
OMB Control Number: 3170-0001.
Abstract: Section 1100A of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act), Public Law 111-203, transferred the authority to conduct the semiannual Report of Terms of Credit Card, from the Federal Reserve Board to the CFPB on July 21, 2011. About 150 credit card issuers, including the 25 largest issuers as measured by outstanding credit card receivables, report the information on credit card pricing and fees. Previously, the information was collected under OMB control number 7100-0239, Form Number 2572. Much of the information collected through the approved information collection is now widely available and in greater detail on third-party credit card shopping Web sites. The CFPB is looking for ways to make the report more informative and helpful for consumers.
Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Credit Card issuers.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 75.
Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. The public is invited to submit written comments concerning: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the CFPB, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the above estimate of the burden of the information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
