Q1: Regulatory Compliance Updates

Compliance Question of the Week

Question: When may a bank rely on the timing requirements of Regulation E to satisfy the disclosure requirements of Regulation DD?


In general, compliance with Regulation E (12 CFR Part 1005) is deemed to satisfy the disclosure requirements of Regulation DD 1030.3, such as when:

  • An institution changes a term that triggers a notice under Regulation E, and uses the timing and disclosure rules of Regulation E for sending change-in-term notices.
  • Consumers add an ATM access feature to an account, and the institution provides disclosures pursuant to Regulation E, including disclosure of fees (see 12 CFR 1005.7.)
  • An institution complying with the timing rules of Regulation E discloses at the same time fees for electronic services (such as for balance inquiry fees at ATMs) required to be disclosed by this part but not by Regulation E.
  • An institution relies on Regulation E's rules regarding disclosure of limitations on the frequency and amount of electronic fund transfers, including security-related exceptions.
But any limitations on “intra-institutional transfers” to or from the consumer's other accounts during a given time period must be disclosed, even though intra-institutional transfers are exempt from Regulation E.

Reference: Official Staff Interpretation 1030.3(c).
