An issuer must notify its payment card networks annually that it complies with the Federal Reserve’s standards for the fraud-prevention adjustment. Regulation II requires issuers to retain evidence of compliance with the requirements imposed for a period of not less than five years after the end of the calendar year in which the electronic debit transaction occurred.
