NCBA filed a request for an advisory opinion with the CFPB regarding the disclosure of interest and fees on the Model Validation Notice.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) final Advisory Opinion Policy (AOP) became effective  November 30, 2020. The AOP sets forth procedures to resolve regulatory uncertainty for interested parties by filing requests for advisory opinions in the form of interpretive rules.

The CFPB’s procedural rule, provides trade associations with a fantastic opportunity. Trade associations may submit requests for advisory opinions on behalf of its members without disclosing the identity of the member making the request.
