Subject: Amendments to Open-End Consumer Credit Provisions of Regulation Z (Truth in
The Federal Reserve Board (FRB) recently approved an interim final rule amending Regulation Z, which implements the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), and the staff commentary to the regulation in order to implement provisions of the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 (Credit Card Act) that became effective on August 20, 2009. Most of the provisions pertain only to consumer credit card accounts, but one provision – a requirement that creditors must mail or deliver periodic statements at least 21 days before the payment is due – applies to all open-end consumer credit accounts.
The interim final rule was published in the Federal Register on July 22, 2009, at 74 FR 36077. Its effective date was August 20, 2009. A link to the FRB’s press release announcing the rule follows. http://www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/press/bcreg/20090715a.htm
