I Appendix A to Part 202—Federal Enforcement Agencies [Regulation B; Docket No. R–1295] The Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), 15 U.S.C. 1691–1691f, makes it unlawful for a creditor to discriminate against an applicant in any aspect of a credit transaction on the basis of the applicant’s national origin, marital status, religion, sex, color, race, age (provided the applicant has the capacity to contract), receipt of public assistance benefits, or the good faith exercise of a right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. 1601 et seq. The ECOA is implemented by the Board’s Regulation B. In addition to the general prohibition against discrimination, Regulation B contains specific rules concerning the taking and evaluation of credit applications, including procedures and notices for credit denials and other adverse action. Under section 202.9 of Regulation B, notification given to an applicant when adverse action is taken must contain the name and address of the federal agency that administers compliance with respect to the creditor. Appendix A of Regulation B contains the names and addresses of the enforcement agencies where questions concerning a particular creditor shall be directed. The Board is establishing a centralized address and telephone number for receiving inquiries about creditors for which the Board enforces Regulation B. This amendment updates the address in Appendix A to reflect this change. Creditors have until October 1, 2008, the mandatory compliance date, to include the new address and telephone number on their adverse action notices.
