ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: OTS is amending its regulations at 12 CFR part 535 titled ‘‘Prohibited Consumer Credit Practices’’ to avoid duplication and inconsistency with the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 and the rules of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve implementing that statute. DATES: This rule is effective on July 1, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard Bennett, Senior Compliance Counsel, Regulations and Legislation Division, (202) 906–7409; or April Breslaw, Director, Consumer Regulations, (202) 906–6989, at Office of Thrift Supervision, 1700 G Street, NW., Washington, DC 20552. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 18, 2008, OTS used its authority under the Federal Trade Commission Act (15 U.S.C. 41–58) and the Home Owners’ Loan Act (12 U.S.C. 1461 et seq.) to adopt a final rule titled ‘‘Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices’’ PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 amending its rule at 12 CFR part 535 titled ‘‘Prohibited Consumer Credit Practices.’’ The rule was published in the Federal Register on January 29, 2009 (January 2009 UDAP rule). 74 FR 5498. OTS issued its rule jointly with rules issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve (Board) and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). The rule was scheduled to go into effect on July 1, 2010. The January 2009 UDAP rule contained three subparts to part 535 and an Appendix to part 535 containing an Official Staff Commentary. Subparts A and B addressed general provisions and credit practices respectively. Subpart C addressed unfair consumer credit card account practices. The Supplementary Information to the January 2009 UDAP rule described all these changes in detail. On May 5, 2009, OTS published proposed amendments to the January 2009 UDAP rule (May 2009 proposed amendments). See 74 FR 20804. On May 22, 2009, the President signed into law the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 (Credit CARD Act). Public Law 111–24, 123 Stat. 1734 (2009). The Credit CARD Act primarily amended the Truth in Lending Act (15 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) and established a number of new substantive and disclosure requires to establish fair and transparent practices pertaining to openend consumer credit plans, including credit card accounts. On July 22, 2009, the Board published an interim final rule amending Regulation Z (12 CFR pt. 226) and the staff commentary to implement those provisions of the Credit CARD Act that became effective on August 20, 2009. See 74 FR 36077. On February 22, 2010, the Board published a new final rule amending Regulation Z and the staff commentary in order to implement the Credit CARD Act. See 75 FR 7658. The Credit CARD Act and the Board’s implementing rule do not affect the provisions of subparts A and B and the corresponding portion of the Appendix in the January 2009 UDAP rule. Accordingly, today’s final rule repromulgates those provisions, subject only to necessary conforming amendments. These provisions will take effect on July 1, 2010 as previously scheduled.
