In June 2022, Director Rohit Chopra wrote in a blog post that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was “seeking to move away from highly complicated rules that have long been a staple of consumer financial regulation and towards simpler and clearer rules” and that the agency was “dramatically increasing the amount of guidance it’s providing to the marketplace, in accordance with the same principles.”  In 2022 alone, the CFPB issued over 20 pieces of formal non-rulemaking guidance (e.g., advisory opinions, interpretive rules, circulars) as well as informal guidance through the Director’s public remarks, press releases, blogs, and other mediums. Not all guidance is created equal. Understanding the types of guidance and their intended audience may help inform the potential impact of the guidance for your credit union.
