As we begin a new year and prepare ourselves for the blizzard of new and revised regulations coming our way, I think it is important for us to consider the regulatory agenda that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has set for itself. You've heard me say so many times, preparation is protection.

So, please undertake a review of the agenda that the CFPB has promised to pursue in the coming months, especially with the view of how best to prepare for the changes that are sure to follow.

It is worth noting that the CFPB reasonably anticipates having certain regulatory matters under consideration during the period from October 1, 2012 to October 1, 2013. And the CFPB will publish updates to its agenda periodically through October 1, 2013.

These matters will be under consideration by the CFPB, primarily including various rulemakings mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act, such as several mortgage-related rulemakings and rulemakings to implement the CFPB's supervisory program for nondepository covered persons by, among other things, defining "larger participants" in certain consumer financial product and service markets.

The CFPB is completing several mortgage-related rulemakings in January 2013, even as it continues to assess the need and resources available for additional rulemakings.

For instance, the Dodd-Frank Act mandates rulemakings to implement amendments to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, and to the Equal Credit Opportunity Act to create a data reporting regime concerning small, women-owned, or minority-owned business lending (which I will discuss at a later date).

Also, the CFPB has inherited proposed rules concerning mortgage loans, home equity lines of credit, and other topics from other agencies as part of the transfer of authorities under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act).

All of these regulatory changes will require careful planning and clear guidance with respect to implementation.

In this article, I highlight the regulatory changes that the CFPB has moved into their final stages. I offer a brief outline of the regulatory issues and the CFPB's likely resolution. Each of these regulations, now approaching the status of Final Rule, is extraordinarily significant and, in some instances, constitutes formidable challenges.

Best wishes!
