The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently issued a Request for Information (RFI) about the Bureau’s rulemaking processes. The bureau is seeking comments and information from interested parties to help assess the overall efficiency and effectiveness of its rulemaking processes. This is the seventh in a series of RFIs announced as part of Acting Director Mick Mulvaney’s call for evidence to ensure the bureau is fulfilling its proper and appropriate functions to best protect consumers. This RFI will provide an opportunity for the public to submit feedback and suggest ways to improve outcomes for both consumers and covered entities. The next RFI in the series will address the bureau’s adopted rules, and will be issued next week.

The RFI will be open for comment for 90 days.

The bureau anticipates issuing RFIs on the following topics in the coming weeks:

  • Bureau Adopted Rules
  • Inherited Rules
  • Guidance and Implementation Support
  • Consumer Education
  • Consumer Inquiries
