Abstract: The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires or authorizes the Bureau to implement new consumer protections in the offering or provision of certain consumer financial products and services.

Information Collection

Title of Collection: Industry Survey for the TRID Assessment.

OMB Control Number: 3170-0032.

Type of Review: Request for approval of a generic information collection.

Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profit entities.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 11,906.

Estimated Total Burden Hours: 9,230.

Abstract: The Dodd-Frank Act requires that the Bureau assess its significant rules within 5 years of a rule's effective date. The Bureau has determined that its November 2013 final rule titled “Integrated Mortgage Disclosures Under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (Regulation X) and the Truth In Lending Act (Regulation Z)” (TRID Rule), with subsequent amendments, is a significant rule. The Act requires that the Bureau's assessment reflect available evidence and data that the Bureau may reasonably collect. This information collection will allow the Bureau to reach out to a cross-section of stakeholders and gather information from them about their experiences with the Rule.

This survey is one part of an overall effort to fulfill the Bureau's obligation to address, among other relevant factors, the effectiveness of the TRID Rule in meeting the purposes and objectives of title X of Dodd-Frank and the specific goals of the Rule as stated by the Bureau. As part of its broader information collection related to the assessment, the Bureau has obtained, or is working to obtain, data from a number of other sources.

Request for Comments: The Bureau issued a 60-day Federal Register notice on June 5, 2019, 84 FR 26078, Docket Number: CFPB-2019-0031. Comments were solicited and continue to be invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the Bureau's estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methods and the assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, 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 automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments may address the overall information collection request plan or the individual collection. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be reviewed by OMB as part of its review of this request. All comments will become a matter of public record.
