Application Procedures and Criteria for Approval of Nonprofit Budget and Credit Counseling Agencies by United States TrusteesRule2013-0436103/14/2013DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICEJustice DepartmentThis final rule (``rule'') sets forth procedures and criteria United States Trustees shall use when determining whether applicants seeking to become and remain approved nonprofit budget and credit counseling agencies (``credit counsel … This final rule (``rule'') sets forth procedures and criteria United States Trustees shall use when determining whether applicants seeking to become and remain approved nonprofit budget and credit counseling agencies (``credit counseling agencies'' or ``agencies'') satisfy all prerequisites of the United States Code, as implemented under this rule. Under the current law, an individual may not be a debtor under title 11 of the United States Code, unless during the 180- day period preceding the date of filing a bankruptcy petition, the individual receives adequate counseling from a credit counseling agency that is approved by the United States Trustee. The current law enumerates mandatory prerequisites and minimum standards applicants seeking to become approved credit counseling agencies must meet. Under this rule, United States Trustees will approve applicants for inclusion on publicly available agency lists in one or more federal judicial districts if an applicant establishes it meets all the requirements of the United States Code, as implemented under this rule. After obtaining such approval, a credit counseling agency shall be authorized to provide credit counseling in a federal judicial district during the time the agency remains approved. EOUST intends to add to its regulations governing credit counseling agencies, two new provisions not previously included in the proposed rule on this subject. A new section 58.17(c)(11) will require agencies to notify the United States Trustee of certain actions pursuant to 11 U.S.C. 111(g)(2) or other consumer protection statutes, such as an entry of judgment or mediation award, or the agency's entry into a settlement order, consent decree, or assurance of voluntary compliance. The second provision will amend section 58.20(j) to require an agency to assist an individual with limited English proficiency by expeditiously directing the individual to an agency that can provide counseling in the language of the individual's choice. Because these provisions were not discussed in the proposed rule published on February 1, 2008, EOUST will publish another Notice of Proposed Rulemaking requesting public comment with respect to these two provisions.application-procedures-and-criteria-for-approval-of-nonprofit-budget-and-credit-counseling-agenciesFR-Doc-2013-04361

Under the current law, individual debtors must participate in an instructional course concerning personal financial management (``instructional course'' or ``debtor education'') before receiving a discharge of debts. The current law enumerates mandatory prerequisites and minimum standards applicants seeking to become approved providers must meet. Under this rule, United States Trustees will approve applicants for inclusion on publicly available provider lists in one or more federal judicial districts if an applicant establishes it meets all the requirements of the United States Code, as implemented under this rule. After obtaining such approval, a provider shall be authorized to provide an instructional course in a federal judicial district during the time the provider remains approved. EOUST intends to add to its regulations governing debtor education providers, two new provisions not previously included in the proposed rule. The first provision will amend section 58.30(c)(5) to require providers to notify the United States Trustee of certain actions pursuant to 11 U.S.C. 111(g)(2) or other consumer protection statutes, such as an entry of judgment or mediation award, or the provider's entry into a settlement order, consent decree, or assurance of voluntary compliance. The second provision will amend section 58.33(i) to require a provider to assist an individual with limited English proficiency by expeditiously directing the individual to a provider that can provide instruction in the language of the individual's choice. Because these provisions were not discussed in the proposed rule published on November 14, 2008, EOUST will publish another Notice of Proposed Rulemaking requesting public comment with respect to these two provisions.application-procedures-and-criteria-for-approval-of-providers-of-a-personal-financial-managementFR-Doc-2013-04364
