  • Regulation P – August 10, 2016: Comments due in response to a proposed rule to amend Regulation P, requiring institutions to provide customers with annual privacy notices, in which an exception to this requirement would be available to those financial institutions that meet certain conditions.
  • Arbitration Agreements – August 22, 2016: Comments due in response to a proposed rule to regulate arbitration provisions of consumer financial products and services and establish 12 CFR part 1040, containing regulations governing two aspects of consumer finance dispute resolution.
