Regulation E

The Federal Reserve Board on Thursday requested public comment on a proposed rule that would create new protections for consumers who send remittance transfers to recipients located in a foreign country.

The proposed rule would require that remittance transfer providers make certain disclosures to senders of remittance transfers, including information about fees and the exchange rate, as applicable, and the amount of currency to be received by the recipient. In addition, the proposed rule would provide error resolution and cancellation rights for senders of remittance transfers.

The proposal is being made under Regulation E (Electronic Fund Transfers) pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

The Federal Register notice is attached. Comments on the proposal must be submitted within 60 days after publication in the Federal Register, which is expected shortly.
