[Regulation Z; Docket No. R–1286]

Truth in Lending

cprice-sewell on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with RULES2

AGENCY: Board of Governors of the
Federal Reserve System.
ACTION: Final rule; withdrawal.
SUMMARY: The Board is withdrawing a
final rule amending Regulation Z and
the staff commentary to the regulation
published on January 29, 2009 (January
2009 Regulation Z Rule). See 72 FR
5244. The Board is publishing a new
final rule elsewhere in this Federal
Register amending Regulation Z in
order to implement the provisions of the
Credit Card Accountability
Responsibility and Disclosure Act of
2009 that are effective on February 22,
2010. The requirements of the January
2009 Regulation Z Rule have been
revised for consistency with the Credit
Card Act and incorporated in the new
final rule. Therefore, the Board is
withdrawing the January 2009
Regulation Z Rule as unnecessary.
DATES: The final rule published on
January 29, 2009, at 74 FR 5244, is
withdrawn as of February 22, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On
December 18, 2008, the Board adopted
a final rule amending Regulation Z,
which implements the Truth in Lending
Act (TILA), and the official staff
commentary. The rule followed a
comprehensive review of TILA’s
provisions for open-end (not homesecured) credit, including credit cards.
The rule made comprehensive changes
to those provisions, including
amendments that affect all of the five
major types of required disclosures:
Credit card applications and
solicitations, account-opening
disclosures, periodic statements, notices

of changes in terms, and advertisements.
The rule was published in the Federal
Register on January 29, 2009, and the
effective date for the amendments was
July 1, 2010. See 74 FR 5244 (January
2009 Regulation Z Rule).
On May 22, 2009, the Credit Card
Accountability Responsibility and
Disclosure Act of 2009 (Credit Card Act)
was signed into law. See Public Law
111–24, 123 Stat. 1734 (2009). The
Credit Card Act primarily amends TILA
and establishes a number of new
substantive and disclosure requirements
to establish fair and transparent
practices pertaining to open-end
consumer credit plans, including credit
card accounts. Elsewhere in today’s
Federal Register, the Board has
published a new final rule amending
Regulation Z and the staff commentary
in order to implement provisions of the
Credit Card Act that are effective on
February 22, 2010. The provisions of the
Board’s January 2009 Regulation Z Rule
have been revised for consistency with
the Credit Card Act and incorporated
into the new final rule. Accordingly, the
Board is withdrawing the January 2009
Regulation Z Rule.
The new final rule is effective on
February 22, 2010. However, to the
extent consistent with the Credit Card
Act, the Board has retained the July 1,
2010 mandatory compliance date for
many of the provisions incorporated
from the January 2009 Regulation Z
Rule. The Board has provided
additional discussion of the withdrawal
of the January 2009 Regulation Z Rule
and the mandatory compliance dates in
the Supplementary Information for the
new final rule.
The final rule published on January
29, 2009, at 74 FR 5244, is withdrawn
as of February 22, 2010.

FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM
12 CFR Part 227
[Regulation AA; Docket No. R–1383]

Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices
AGENCY: Board of Governors of the
Federal Reserve System.
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: On January 29, 2009, the
Board published a final rule amending
Regulation AA and the staff
commentary to the regulation. The
substantive requirements in the January
2009 Regulation AA Rule, which were
scheduled to go into effect on July 1,
2010, have been superseded by
provisions of the Credit Card
Accountability Responsibility and
Disclosure Act of 2009 (Credit Card Act)
that go into effect on February 22, 2010.
Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal
Register, the Board is implementing
these Credit Card Act provisions in a
new final rule amending Regulation Z.
Accordingly, in order to avoid
duplication and inconsistency, the
Board is further amending Regulation
AA to remove the substantive
requirements in the January 2009
Regulation AA Rule. For procedural
reasons, these requirements will be
removed effective July 1, 2010.
However, it is the Board’s intent that the
substantive requirements of the January
2009 Regulation AA Rule will not take
effect.
The Board issued its January 2009
Regulation AA Rule jointly with rules
issued by the Office of Thrift
Supervision (OTS) and the National
Credit Union Administration (NCUA).
This final rule applies only to the
Board’s Regulation AA and does not
affect the rules issued by the OTS and
NCUA.
DATES: This rule is effective July 1,
2010.
