Comments due on FDIC proposal to amend part 328
The FDIC has announced a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend part 328 of its regulations to modernize the rules governing use of the official FDIC sign and insured depository institutions’ (IDIs’) advertising statements to reflect how depositors do business with IDIs today, including through digital and mobile channels. The proposal also would clarify the FDIC’s regulations regarding misrepresentations of deposit insurance coverage by addressing specific scenarios where consumers may be misled as to whether they are doing business with an IDI and whether their funds are protected by deposit insurance.
Comments on the proposal will be accepted through February 21, 2023.
