The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (the "CFPB" or "Bureau") issued its Final Rule ("Rule") on July 5, 2012, adopting its Proposed Rule, without modification, regarding the confidential treatment of information by adding a new section providing that the submission by any person of any information to the Bureau in the course of the Bureau's supervisory or regulatory processes does not waive or otherwise affect any privilege such person may claim with respect to such information under Federal or State law as to any other person or entity.*

Also, the CFPB has amended its regulations to provide that its provision of privileged information to another Federal or State agency does not waive any applicable privilege, whether the privilege belongs to the CFPB or any other person.

The Final Rule implements the Proposed Rule, without modification, regarding the confidential treatment of information. The effective date is August 6, 2012.
