FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Authority: 15 U.S.C. 1616(a), (b). Section 502(a) of the CARD Act 1 requires the Bureau to conduct a review of the consumer credit card market. To inform that review, Section 502(b) 2 instructs the Bureau to seek public comment. Accordingly, the Bureau hereby invites members of the public, including consumers, credit card issuers, industry analysts, consumer advocates, and other interested persons to submit information and other comments relevant to the issued expressly identified in Section 2 below, as well as any information they believe is relevant to assessing the impact of the CARD Act on the consumer credit card market. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Background: The CARD Act The CARD Act was signed into law in May 2009.3 Passage of the Act was expressly intended to ‘‘establish fair and transparent practices related to the extension of credit’’ in the credit card market.4 To achieve these agreed-upon purposes, the Act changed the requirements applicable to credit card pricing in a number of significant respects. Prior to the CARD Act, the applicable provisions of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and its implementing regulation (Regulation Z) focused principally on how companies needed to disclose product pricing terms to consumers, and otherwise placed few substantive limits on industry practice.5 After the CARD Act, however, TILA and Regulation Z also imposed direct limits on a number of pricing practices that Congress deemed unfair or unclear to consumers. The following is a high-level summary of CARD Act changes. Further information about the CARD Act is available on the Bureau’s Web site at www.consumerfinance.gov/credit-cards. (a) Interest Rate Increases The Act limits the circumstances under which credit card issuers can increase interest rates on existing and new balances. For new balances, the 1 See 15 U.S.C. 1616(a). 15 U.S.C. 1616(b). 3 The CARD Act’s provisions took effect in three stages: August 2009, February 2010, and October 2011. 4 Text of H.R. 627 (111th), available at www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/111/hr627/text. 5 The Federal Reserve Board promulgated several substantive rules shortly before passage of the CARD Act, but they had not taken effect before the Act was signed into law. 2 See E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1
