CFPB is seeking preliminary input from users of its eRegulations tool in order
to improve this resource. They have created a 19-question
survey to collect input from compliance folks like us. We invite you to
peruse the e-regs tool and fill out the survey. The survey is asking for
feedback on the various features of the tool, ease and frequency of use, and
how it compares to existing resources used by compliance officers.
CFPB has been experimenting with new ways to publish regulatory
information. One of these is the new eRegulations tool for Regulations E and Z,
which you should check
out here. This website allows the user to scroll through and search the
text of the current, and past versions of these regulations and accompanying
staff commentary. The page also includes a timeline which allows the user to
track the recent changes that the CFPB has made to these rules.
Early impressions from CUNA’s compliance team are positive, and so
far we feel that this eRegulations platform will provide easy access to
regulations and additional features to help with compliance. However, keep in mind that this eRegulations tool is a compilation
of material and is not an official legal edition of the
regulations. If you are relying on the material for legal research
you should consult official versions of the regulations in the Code of Federal
Regulations (eCFR). And don’t forget to fill out the
survey when you get a chance, since doing so may help the Bureau improve
and expand this tool to other regulations.
