Question of the Week

  • QUESTION: Is the director of an affiliate bound by the extension of credit requirements of Regulation O?


    Regulation O states:

    Extensions of credit to a director of an affiliate of a bank are not subject to sections:

    • 215.4 “General Prohibitions”,
    • 215.6 “Prohibitions on knowingly receiving unauthorized extensions of credit”, and
    • 215.8 “Records of member banks”

    If, the director of the affiliate is excluded, by resolution of the board of directors or by the bylaws of the bank, from participation in major policy making functions of the bank, and the director does not actually participate in such functions.

    Reference: Regulation O: 12 CFR 215.2(d)(2).


  • QUESTION: For bank's providing statements electronically, is it sufficient to provide a link to the Regulation E error resolution notice on the bank's Internet Banking page?


    No, providing a link to the error resolution notices on the bank's Internet Banking page is not sufficient.  Section 1005.8(b) states that "For accounts to or from which electronic funds transfers can be made, a financial institution shall mail or deliver to the consumer, at least once each calendar year, an error resolution notice substantially similar to the model form set forth in Appendix A (Model Form A-3)...on or with each statement required by 12 CFR 1005.9(b)."  As such, a general link on an Internet Banking page would not satisfy the requirement to provide the notice on or with the periodic statement. 

    Reference: 12 CFR 1005.8(b).
