Federal Reserve System April 30, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Truth in Lending
Document Number: E7-7878
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-04-30
Agency: Federal Reserve System, Agencies and Commissions
The Board is proposing to amend Regulation Z, which implements the Truth in Lending Act, to withdraw portions of the interim final rules for the electronic delivery of disclosures issued March 30, 2001. The interim final rules address the timing and delivery of electronic disclosures, consistent with the requirements of the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-Sign Act). Compliance with the 2001 interim final rules is not mandatory. Thus, removing the interim rules from the Code of Federal Regulations would reduce confusion about the status of the provisions and simplify the regulation. The Board is also proposing to amend Regulation Z to provide that when an application, solicitation, or advertisement is accessed by a consumer in electronic form, certain disclosures must be provided to the consumer in electronic form on or with the application, solicitation, or advertisement, and that in these circumstances the consumer consent and other provisions of the E-Sign Act do not apply. The proposal would also implement certain provisions of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. Similar rules are being proposed under other consumer fair lending and financial services regulations administered by the Board.
