Regulation J: Amendments to Simplify Regulation J and Make it Conform more closely with Regulation CC [R-1599]

The Board invites comments on proposed amendments to Regulation J. They are intended to clarify and simplify certain provisions of Subpart A of Regulation J, remove obsolete provisions, and align the rights and obligations of sending banks, paying banks, and Federal Reserve Banks with the Board's recent amendments to Regulation CC, Availability of Funds and Collection of Checks (12 CFR part 229), to reflect the virtually all-electronic check collection and return environment. The proposed rule would also amend subpart B of Regulation J to clarify that terms used in financial messaging standards, such as ISO 20022, do not confer legal status or responsibilities.

This proposal has been archived and there are no comments available for viewing at this time.
