The final version of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's Remittance Transfer Rule went into effect October 28, 2013. The Rule imposes significant consumer protection requirements on international consumer funds transfers, including wire, ACH, prepaid cards, and other electronic funds transfers. The CFPB already has issued new examination procedures to assess not only the quality of an institution’s compliance risk management systems and the strengths or weaknesses of its business model, but also various risks outside the bounds of the Rule, including potential UDAAP and GLBA privacy (Regulation P) violations.

In this webinar, we will explore key facets of the Rule and identify the most urgent steps entities subject to it will have to take to comply, including: 

  • Identifying what types of transfers are subject to the Rule
  • Mandatory disclosures
  • Error resolution policies and procedures 
  • Refund and cancellation rights 
  • Exam preparation
