Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Materials


The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) regulates the offering and provision of consumer financial products or services under the federal consumer financial laws, and educates and empowers consumers to make better informed financial decisions. The principal goals of the CFPB are, as described by the agency:

  • Rooting out unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices by writing rules, supervising companies, and enforcing the law;
  • Enforcing laws that outlaw discrimination in consumer finance;
  • Taking consumer complaints;
  • Enhancing financial education;
  • Researching the consumer experience of using financial products; and
  • Monitoring financial markets for new risks to consumers.

This page includes the principal materials directly relevant to the CFPB and its regulations. For each of the regulations imposing substantive obligations, the CFPB Rule by Rule Page provides a link to a topic page that provides a comprehensive collection of material on that topic.

On the left side of the page are the CFPB Statutes and Rules.

The top right of the page, under Developments, are tools to keep Cabinet members current on regulatory developments: the Cabinet's regulatory news and links to the Cabinet Trackers for Change Management and for Rules in Transition, each of which can be filtered by agency. To see a calendar of events, go to the Calendar Page and select the Banking Regulatory Calendar.
