SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) published a final rule in theFederal Registerof October 31, 2012 (77 FR 65775) amending 12 CFR part 1090 by adding a new section to define larger participants of a market for consumer debt collection. The final rule contained four typographical errors, which this document corrects. Three of these errors were incorrect cross-references. The other error was an omission of a subheading designation.

The Bureau finds that there is good cause to publish these corrections without seeking public comment.See5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B). Public comment is unnecessary because the Bureau is correcting inadvertent, technical errors about which there is minimal, if any, basis for substantive disagreement.

Accordingly, in FR Doc. 2012-26467 published on October 31, 2012 (77 FR 65775), make the following corrections:

1. On page 65798, in the second column, in § 1090.105, in paragraph (iii)(C) of the definition ofAnnual receipts,remove the first reference to “(iii)(B)” and add “(ii)” in its place.

2. On page 65798, in the second column, in § 1090.105, in paragraph (iii)(C) of the definition ofAnnual receipts,remove the second reference to “(iii)(B)” and add “(ii)(B)” in its place.

3. On page 65798, in the second column, in § 1090.105, in paragraph (iii)(D) of the definition ofAnnual receipts,remove “(iii)(B)” and add “(ii)” in its place.

4. On page 65798, in the third column, add the paragraph designation “(b)” before “Test to define larger participants”.
