FTC, CFPB Extend Deadline Featured

By Staff Writer December 27, 2019

The Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) have extended the deadline to submit comments on issues affecting the accuracy of consumer reports until Jan. 31.

The FTC and CFPB sought comment on issues affecting the accuracy of both traditional credit reports and employment and tenant background screening reports in conjunction with a Dec. 10 workshop on the topic co-hosted by both agencies. The original deadline for comments was Jan. 10.

At the request of the public, the FTC and CFPB have agreed to provide additional time for the public to provide input on a range of issues. These include the effect of the removal of most civil judgments and tax liens from credit reports and recent changes in the reporting of medical debt, whether new technologies and data management practices improve accuracy, and what government and private sector measures could improve accuracy, as well as the costs and benefits of these measures.
