In addition to using notice and comment to seek feedback on consumer regulations from external stakeholders, the CFPB has historically conducted external engagements, such as field hearings, town halls, roundtables, non-public meetings, and public meetings of the CFPB’s Advisory Board and Councils, to discuss and receive feedback on its work. In the February 26, 2018, issue of the Federal Register (83 FR 8247, click here), the CFPB published a request for information (RFI) seeking comments on how best to conduct future CFPB external engagements.
