The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau divided certain proposals to amend the Bureau's Regulations X and Z into separate Information Collection Requests (ICRs) in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) system (accessible at to ease the public's ability to view and understand the individual proposals. Subsequent to the finalization of the rules, CFPB anticipates that it will recombine the portions of Regulations Z and X that are broken out in the system into the existing control numbers for Regulations X and Z. CFPB respondents should continue to use the 3170-0015 control number for Regulation Z and 3170-0016 control number for Regulation X throughout this time.

The Bureau notes that, while OMB has approved the information collection requirements as contained in the above noted final rules, the Bureau's current rules remain in effect and affected parties are not required to follow the requirements contained in final rules listed above until such time as the effective date of the respective final rule.
