2.  See 82 FR 18975 (Apr. 25, 2017) and 83 FR 6364 (Feb. 13, 2018). These amendments, among other things, extended the effective date of the Prepaid Accounts Rule to April 1, 2019.

3.  On March 6, 2019, the Bureau published a notification in the Federal Register titled “Technical Specifications for Submissions to the Prepaid Account Agreements Database.” 84 FR 7979 (Mar. 6, 2019) (Technical Specifications). The Technical Specifications relate to a provision in 12 CFR 1005.19, added to Regulation E by the Prepaid Accounts Rule, which requires a prepaid account issuer to make submissions of its currently-offered prepaid account agreements on a rolling basis, in the form and manner specified by the Bureau. While the Technical Specifications do not introduce any new or revised collections of information beyond what is already contemplated by the Prepaid Accounts Rule, for purposes of the PRA, OMB considers them as instructions for an information collection and, as such, have been included in OMB's docket for OMB number 3170-0014.

4.  The Bureau divided certain proposals to amend the Bureau's Regulation Z into separate ICRs in the OMB system (accessible at to ease the public's ability to view and understand the individual proposals. The Bureau anticipates that it will combine OMB Number 3170-0050 into the existing control number for Regulation Z (OMB Number 3170-0015). Bureau respondents should continue to use the 3170-0015 control number for Regulation Z.
