Regulation II: Debit Card Interchange Fees and Routing [R-1818]

Regulation II implements a provision of the Dodd-Frank Act that requires the Board to establish standards for assessing whether the amount of any interchange fee received by a debit card issuer is reasonable and proportional to the cost incurred by the issuer with respect to the transaction. The Board proposes to update all three components of the interchange fee cap based on the latest data reported to the Board by large debit card issuers. Further, the Board proposes to update the interchange fee cap every other year going forward by directly linking the interchange fee cap to data from the Board's biennial survey of large debit card issuers. The Board also proposes a set of technical revisions to Regulation II.

The Board has received over 2,500 form letters on this proposal that are not being posted. The attached file (PDF) contains examples of the content of 14 different form letters.
