    Title of Collection: Fair Credit Reporting Act (Regulation V) 12 
CFR 1022.
    OMB Control Number: 3170-0002.
    Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved 
    Affected Public: Businesses and other for profit.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 779,073.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 6,093,412.
    Abstract: The consumer disclosures included in Regulation V are 
designed to alert consumers that a financial institution furnished 
negative information about them to a consumer reporting agency, that 
they have a right to opt out of receiving marketing materials and 
credit or insurance offers, that their credit report was used in 
setting the material terms of credit that may be less favorable than 
the terms offered to consumers with better credit histories, that they 
maintain certain rights with respect to a theft of their identity that 
they reported to a consumer reporting agency, that they maintain rights 
with respect to knowing what is in their consumer reporting agency 
file, that they can request a free credit report, and that they can 
report a theft of their identity to the CFPB. Consumers then can use 
the information provided to consider how and when to check and use 
their credit reports.
    This is a routine request for OMB to renew its approval of the 
collections of information currently approved under this OMB control 
number. The Bureau is not proposing any new or revised collections of 
information pursuant to this request.

notice on February 23, 2017, 82 FR 11437, Docket Number: CFPB-2017-
0003. Comments were solicited and continue to be invited on: (a) 
Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper

techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted 
in response to this notice will be reviewed by OMB as part of its 
review of this request. All comments will become a matter of public
