Reg CC is authorized pursuant the EFAA, as amended, and the Check 21 Act (12 U.S.C. § 4008 and 12 U.S.C. 5014, respectively). Because the Federal Reserve does not collect any information, no issue of confidentiality arises. However, if, during a compliance examination of a financial institution, a violation or possible violation of the EFAA or the Check 21 Act is noted then information regarding such violation may be kept confidential pursuant to Section (b)(8) of the Freedom of Information Act. 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(8). Abstract: Regulation CC requires banks to make funds deposited in transaction accounts available within specified time periods, disclose their availability policies to customers, and begin accruing interest on such deposits promptly. The disclosures are intended to alert customers that their ability to use deposited funds may be delayed, prevent unintentional (and potentially costly) overdrafts, and allow customers to compare the policies of different banks before deciding at which bank to deposit funds. The regulation also requires notice to the depositary bank and to a customer of nonpayment of a check. Model disclosure forms, clauses, and notices are appended to the regulation to ease compliance. Action: On August 7, 2007, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (72 FR 44136) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of Reg CC. The comment period for this notice expired on October 9, 2007. No comments were received. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, October 16, 2007. Jennifer J.
