The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which "inherited" Regulation E from the Federal Reserve Board on July21, 2011, published a final rule at 77 FR 6194, on February7, 2012, with an effective date of February7, 2013. The same day, the Bureau published a proposal at 77 FR 6310 that would modify the final rule to establish a slightly more relaxed coverage threshold and change some of the requirements for advance-scheduled remittance transfers. Comments closed on the proposal on April9, 2012, and the Bureau could issue a final amending rule at any time.
The current version of the Foreign Remittance Transfer rule can be found as subpart B of Regulation E (12 CFR Part 1005), in BankersOnline's Alphabet Soup.
