On November 20, 2009, a notice of proposed rulemaking was published in the Federal Register for public comment (74 FR 60986). The proposed amendments would restrict an institutionís ability to impose dormancy, inactivity, or service fees for certain prepaid products, primarily gift cards. In addition, the proposed amendments would generally prohibit the sale or issuance of such products if they have an expiration date of less than five years. The proposed amendments implement statutory requirements set forth in the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 that are effective on August 22, 2010. The comment period expired December 21, 2009. The Federal Reserve received over 230 comments; no comments specifically addressing the paperwork burden estimates were received. One comment referenced PRA; however the Federal Reserve believes the points raised were related to regulatory burden (beyond the scope of PRA). The estimates therefore will remain unchanged as published in the proposed rule. On April 1, 2010, a notice of final rulemaking was published in the Federal Register adopting the amendments largely as proposed, with mandatory compliance by August 22, 2010 (75 FR 16580).
