Section 1042 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB, to prescribe rules establishing procedures that govern the process, described in Section 1042(b) of the Dodd-Frank Act, by which state officials notify the CFPB of actions or proceedings undertaken pursuant to the authority granted in section 1042(a) to enforce the Dodd-Frank Act or regulations prescribed thereunder. In accordance with the requirements of the Dodd-Frank Act, the CFPB has proposed an interim final rule establishing that notice should be provided at least 10 days before the filing of an action, with certain exceptions, and setting forth a limited set of information which is to be provided with the notice (which substantially tracks the statutory language). The data will be received each time a state official files an action to enforce the Dodd-Frank Act or a regulation promulgated thereunder. It will be collected by the CFPB (through electronic mail submissions), and specifically by the Office of Enforcement and the Executive Secretary, who will share it as necessary and appropriate within the CFPB and elsewhere in government, pursuant to the process set out in the rules. It will also be collected by the prudential regulators (through postal mail or electronic mail submissions) where relevant.
