CFPB RIN: 3170-AA33 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Disclosure Rules For Remittance Transactions (Regulation E) 
Abstract: On February 7, 2012, the CFPB published in the Federal Register a final rule to implement section 1073 of the Dodd- Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which amended the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (EFTA) to create a comprehensive new Federal consumer protection regime for remittance transfers by U.S. consumers to individuals and businesses in foreign countries. Consistent with the statute, the final rule requires remittance transfer providers to provide certain disclosures, cancellation rights, and error resolution procedures. In August 2012, the CFPB published a final rule providing additional guidance regarding what companies are not subject to the rule because they do not provide remittance transfers in the "normal course of business" and modifying certain requirements as applied to remittance transfers scheduled several days in advance. In May 2013, the CFPB published an additional final rule that revised the requirements of the rule. Specifically, the CFPB revised requirements for errors resulting from incorrect account numbers provided by senders of remittance transfers and the disclosure of foreign taxes and third- party fees. The CFPB also set a new effective date for the rule of October 28, 2013.
