The staff of the Consumer Credit Division provides licensees subject to the Truth in Lending Act with substantial assistance in complying with its requirements. Guidance concerning compliance is offered to creditors during and after examinations. From time to time trade associations and other groups present formal educational programs in which staff members participate. The large volume of consumer inquiries received by the division is used wherever possible as an opportunity to educate the public on how to best use the information creditors are required to disclose.
