2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently proposed a 538-page rule implementing Regulation F, pursuant to its authority under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Dodd-Frank Act.

Join us for a discussion on several key aspects of the Proposed Rule:

  • Coverage: confirmed successor in interest; personal representative of a deceased consumer’s estate
  • Conduct and communication: time, place, and frequency restrictions; text and email requirements; resolution of the “voicemail paradox”
  • Disclosure requirements: debt validation notice; disclosure safe harbor for use of the CFPB’s model form; electronic disclosures
  • Interplay with state debt-collection laws; applicability to first-party collection

Speakers: Nanci Weissgold, Anoush Garakani, and Ross Speier
