Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) the Bureau may not conduct or sponsor, and, notwithstanding any other provision of law, a respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. On October 29, 2019, the Bureau published a final rule in the Federal Register titled “Home Mortgage Disclosure (Regulation C).” 
The final rule amends 12 CFR part 1003 (Regulation C), which implements the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). The Bureau's OMB control number for Regulation C is 3170-0008. This final rule revises the information collection requirements contained in Regulation C that were previously approved by OMB under that OMB control number as follows: (1) Extends for two years Regulation C's current temporary threshold of 500 open-end lines of credit for open-end institutional and transactional coverage, and (2) implements the new, separate Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act 
partial exemptions that apply to some HMDA reporting requirements. Pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.11(h), the Bureau submitted the Final Rule with an information collection request (ICR) to OMB on October 17, 2019 and OMB approved this ICR on November 27, 2019. In accordance with the PRA and 5 CFR 1320.11(k), the Bureau hereby announces OMB approval of the revised information collection requirements as contained in the subject final rule which will be effective January 1, 2020.
