On November 6th, the Consumer Financial Bureau (the “CFPB” or the “Bureau”) kicked off its process for issuing long-awaited rules that will govern the practices of the debt collection industry. Section 1089 of the Dodd-Frank Act amended the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) to authorize the CFPB to issue such rules. The CFPB’s rules will be the first formal rules that implement and interpret the requirements of the FDCPA. The rules have the potential to reshape many aspects of the debt collection industry.
